When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! That’s what my mother always said. I’ve been in a rotten rut the last few days and decided I needed a retreat from writing to collect my calm and creative. With stress swirling from work (as in the real thing that pays my bills and designer handbag habit), neighbors (yakity yak) and my beloved car being bruised by a bad driver, my Rue has been anything but Chat-ty. Alas today, I managed to steal away a few seconds to sound off using the sanctuary that is my blog. So, au revoir lemons and bonjour lemonade.
