Borders Booty

I just happened to be in the shopping center near home today where Borders is housed and I remembered the advert I'd seen about Somerset doing a mag on where women create so I steered the truck over there to look for it. I couldn't find it yet; may be too early still, I just know it said October. BUT, to my delight, there were some surprises I had not counted on......the must-have staple of Somerset Life...
... and Somerset Memories; I actually buy most of the Somerset issues of whatever comes out. But...
...there was also this new issue of Romantic Country which I think our Bellas are in-oh I hope so!
THEN, look what I found! Mary has a new mag. I thought I remembered something about reading about this coming out but it was still a complete surprise to find it there. I don't know how y'all do it but I find that between the magazines, the blogs, email, a shop, the laundry and cooking, homework, and Karate I have to make time to make things which is really what I want to do most. But even if I'm not "borrowing" ideas I just get so inspired by it all that the creative juices start bubbling over. I do believe that if Warren Buffet wanted to invest in something really worthwhile it would to pay all of us to read and create and have housekeepers and cooks so that we have proper use of our time. I'm sure most of you will agree that it'd be money well spent! Well off I go to my workroom to find the floor but first I have to call my mom...P.S. After racing right out to your nearest Borders be sure to tell them where you heard this; remember, I've applied for a job there and still haven't heard yet. I'll be hounding the poor manager when she works next on Friday-that gives you plent of time to email or tell them who sent ya'.

That new M.E. mag looks great! And I know what you mean, I just don't have the time to go through all of my magazines! Lots of blog friends are in some of the Somerset ones and I haven't even read it yet.
