I spent some time just after the last post thinking about getting supplies for the garden, and then said "screw it" and went to get the shelves and casters at least. And then, I just up and got a bunch of smaller containers and herb seedlings... and some kale, and some cabbage, and some lettuce. … Continue reading I might’ve gone a bit overboard with the indoor herb-garden thing… but I might just love the possible headaches anyway.
It's been a pretty insane little week with people coming in and me trying to just get through waiting for the newbie to get done with training. I have to work tomorrow and I wish I didn't because I'm getting more headaches more often and I just want to be away from work. It kinda … Continue reading I’m almost at the point where I will be free to start over… & I’m wondering how to start.
I gotta say, it's been nearly a week since I've had roommates come in, the family that came to live with me for a little while, and a ton of things have happened. At the same time, not so much. But there's a few little lessons I've learned over the days: When the neighbor volun-tells … Continue reading First lessons I’ve learned about having roommates in this first week
I didn't quite start it like the rooster--my annoying alarm clock was sufficient--but I spent the last few minutes before sleep on a coordinated attack on all the crap I've wanted to do in my yard for months. Since I ended up with an unexpected day off and perfect weather, why the hell wouldn't I … Continue reading This is the first morning in a long time where I’m excited to get up & start my day… weird.
I had a major victory today for my life before I went to work. At least, for my immediate present and future. I finished the dishes. Considering I'd been avoiding them for a week, that's a helluva accomplishment these days. I can't help it. I HATE doing the dishes. Even something so mundane as unloading … Continue reading The Secret of Cooking & Comedy is the same: timing
Naturally, health is going to be on the list. The difficulty is this week especially, I have to focus on finances and getting things corrected before all the tax season stuff gets really going. That's what I hate the most, but today and tomorrow I'm dedicating myself to getting it all cleared up as best … Continue reading Playing with New Years Resolutions. Learning how to prioritize me.
(Not my chair, but definitely one of my rugs because carpet sucks [pic from esalerugs.com]) Rest assured, I have not suddenly become a Stepford wife or something that's gone the route of June Cleaver wannabe. I made some plans and finally figured out how to get a good dose of cleaning done today instead of … Continue reading I’ve spent about 10 hours today trying to scour my new place…& I’m totally happy about it.
This has been a tiring, fun, LONG weekend. I thought this idea up a couple months ago when I realized July 20th was going to be on a Saturday. It was too perfect, and the co-worker I brought it up to was really into it. However, she couldn't make it to work to see me … Continue reading I couldn’t resist having a little fun July 20th. How could I not, being an astro-nut…
Ah, Bugs, my fave composer...hee hee (gif from Looney Tunes & Gfycat.com) I am a film-score and soundtrack nut. Easily 25% of my CD collection (yes, I still have all mine and keep burning more) is comprised of soundtracks and film scores. That number stretches to 50% if I include classical music and the film … Continue reading Top 5 Soundtracks and/or Film Scores so good you can (almost) ignore the damn movie.
That right up there is my newest guitar...and it's a freaking beauty. And as far as I'm concerned, it's my LAST guitar...unless somebody just up and gives me one for some reason later. I've got plenty of instruments right now, so I think I'll just keep to what I've got and put the rest on … Continue reading It’s time to stop collecting & start practicing…or else, what’s the point?
