Whutcha doin’?

Posted on by
Playing Wheel of Fortune on my new netbook and drinking imported English Tea (hand carried over by my Honey) in my “cable knit” mug (the infamous Starbuck’s knitting mug).
When I make tea, it just makes me wish Honey was here even more. Not only do I miss him, but he makes THE. BEST. TEA.
Well duh Donna, considering where he’s from, of COURSE he can make tea.
Just for the record, he makes the best coffee too.
It’s always just the right amout of sugar and milk.
Yum.
Check out the laptop cover.  Cables. Yarn.  That, my dear readers is a KNITTED cover.  With CABLES.  Next to the CABLE KNIT mug which holds my not-so-perfectly made tea.
And no, I can’t take credit for making the knitted cover.  If it was left to me, my poor netbook would still be nekkid.
I was a “bad” knitter and bought it. :o)
I’ve gotten over it though, because it’s the COOLEST. COVER. EVER.

Almost Honey Time

Posted on by

I have been neglecting my poor little blog.

Not because of Facebook, or Twitter, or any other of those thingies.

I just haven’t gotten around to taking the time to write anything.

When I do have a quiet moment where I could possibly write something, I just don’t feel like sitting in front of a computer typing my thoughts key by key.

Honey arrives for his visit one week from TODAY!

I am excited and nervous and blah blah blah.

We haven’t seen each other for two years (2 yrs!!!).

We don’t have any big fancy plans. The only plan is to spend as much time together as possible.

That’s the only plan we really need.

Gee…almost a month between posts!

Hey, I’m on a roll…

Sorry no postie. I’ve been really busy at work. On a computer and sitting all day equals total aversion to sitting down in front of a computer at night.

I’ve been sitting, but not with the computer.

I’ve done a few rows of knitting here and there. I’ve been reading. I’ve been listening to someone else read (books on CD anyone?). I’ve been playing Xbox (yes, I do). Mostly tho, I’ve been collapsing on the couch after dinner and falling asleep.

I’ve started a Pilates class on Wednesdays at noon. Unfortunately I’ll have to stop that after this month. I just can’t keep up with it financially. I am going to get 2 good months out of it, so hopefully can continue on my own.

Been on the bike a few times.

I voted. Ms Cow wrote in Cow for Parks and Grasses Boss. Wonder what the vote counters thought of that. 🙂

Found a great hairdresser. Got great new color, went bold on a new, shorter cut. Lost a great hairdresser. Went back for great new color and to maintain cut. Color worked, cut, not so much.

Growing out hair…and will most likely go back to coloring my own hair again. I can color my own hair in an hour as opposed to 3 hours at the salon. And will still save money over getting it done at a school. As for cuts, I can go to the corner and get a quick trim for $10 with a coupon. Bim bam, I’m outta there! No more wasting an entire Saturday morning or afternoon sitting in a chair smelling chemicals for 4 hours.

It was good while it lasted. The salon folks were very friendly and really listened to what I wanted to do with my hair. I just can’t do it any more. Sigh.

I really do like my new cut, but it’s a pain. It grows out way too quickly. I can’t pull it back and still look nice – it takes about 8 clips to hold it back cos it’s so thick. I look like I was having something done at the salon and had to leave in a hurry.

If I leave it down, I get hot. Really hot. Especially when riding my bike. It’s like wearing a really really thick woolly hat that dips down over the back of my neck. All the time.

No thanks. I like the option of either putting it up or wearing it down or wearing it half up or whatever.

So I’m going to let it grow back. I miss my biking braids too. 🙂

Went thru an episode of Kitty not sleeping and MEOWING all night long. Is why I’ve been so damn tired. No sleep will do that to you. She’s sleeping again now, but I’m still not. Sigh. I’m getting better but I swear I still hear her MEOWING even tho she’s sound asleep at the end of the bed.

I’ve been trying to organize and get rid of about half of what I’ve got in this place before Honey and Cow arrive. Less than 40 days now and the place is not quite where I’d like it to be. I’ve got lots of things that need to go away and now need to find a way to get them away.

Getting a few items from a very generous friend that need new homes and I really could use here, so need to get back to work. They are arriving tomorrow.

Before I forget again…

Happy Biking Anniversary to me and my pretty pretty bike. Three years last month (Oct 16th) and still going strong. Really wish I could get myself in your saddle a lot more often.

Time to sort, organize and pack up give-aways!

How many days?

…77 days til Honey and Cow arrive. Squeeee!!!

Ms Cow and I are very excited and working very hard to make things, sort things and get rid of things.

We’re busy! 🙂

Tomorrow I’m off to a work thing for the day. I love it that it’s in my home town (esp since it starts at 8am)…but…it’s been pushing 100F for the last few days here. I haven’t even looked to see what the high was today. Honestly, I don’t really want to know.

Sigh…it’s been pretty toasty in the whole area, so I really don’t think going to the North Bay or over to San Francisco would even help heat-wise.

I’m just glad the venue where I’ll be is air-conditioned. 🙂

I’m trying very hard right now not to fall asleep. I worked very hard this weekend at home, and was very busy all day at work (it was HOT in the warehouse).

I really need to do some laundry, but I just can’t get myself up and at it. I really wish I had the machines right here in my apt…it wouldn’t be such a chore to just pop things in and out when I needed something. I’ve got just what I need to get me through tomorrow, then I have no choice tomorrow night. Sigh.

Off to figure out when I need to catch the bus tomorrow and which bus I need to transfer to…

Still working hard at being unemployed…

Hello everyone,

Things have been tough in the Chaos here. Lately I’ve been a bit down so NOTHING is getting done around here. Just the basics to get by. Being sick last week, disappointment after disappointment and life in general has just been dragging me deeper and deeper.

No creativity let loose, no making of anything, no sorting, no organizing. Nothing.

I get up late, I chat with Honey for an hour, I sit on the couch with the Kitty and read or sleep the day away. Horror of all horrors, I’ve actually been watching daytime TV!!!! Talk shows only, no soaps, and the talk shows are of the more “classy” type. No Jerry Springer or that other dude allowed. Sometimes I put on Discovery Channel all day.

I’ve learned a lot about building cars (Overhaulin’) so I guess it’s not really time wasted, right? Yeah, right.

My Mom and Sis sent grandma’s vintage beads on Saturday. The USPS attempted delivery on Monday (that was QUICK!!). Silly me decided to go out and enjoy the nice weather, so I missed them. I’ve been trying to get it re-delivered ever since. I finally cornered the carrier today and he promised he’d bring the box tomorrow.

I can’t wait to get my hands on them! I have lots of plans in my head and hopefully I can pull myself up and out of my current funk enough to work with them and get going on some really cool stuff!!! Which I hope I can continue and grow into SOMETHING going on around here besides moping and feeling sorry for myself.

Today I decided I need to put myself on a schedule. Time blocks need to happen for daily/weekly chores, deep cleaning, sorting/organizing, creating/making, bike riding, exercising, relaxing, and so on. I need to pull myself up and get my butt in gear or NOTHING is going to keep getting done. And I want this place looking good by Christmas. I want to start the new year with an organized place. I know if I just made myself do something little every day, I could do it. There really isn’t that much to do, I only need to apply myself a whole lot more.

I’m even thinking about going back to school. Don’t know what I’d study yet, but the thought is there – again. Especially since I’m having such bad luck on the job front.

On the wrist front, I’ve been dealing with pain from a “cyst” type thing on my wrist. My insurance company is stalling the doc’s office. They’re not being very timely with responses for pre-auths, etc. I don’t know what is worse, the pain or the frustration. Meanwhile, the pain gets worse and worse. Gee thanks insurance company. So glad you care so much for your members. So very glad this isn’t life threatening.

On a happier note, Ms Cow will step in and do some more fashion posts. She’s really getting into this…she is making notes for a post as I type. We bought a new book about Fashion History and she’s had her nose in it since Monday. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with!

You’d think I’d post more…

….being that I am unemployed and supposedly have nothing better to do…

Today I went into San Francisco to DSW warehouse and then on to Chinatown. A good walk about the City wandering in and out of various bathrooms and shops does one good.

Yes, I did buy shoes* and yes, I bought myself a small silk zipper pouch and a wee bit larger messenger bag at my fav shop in Chinatown, said hi to the giant wooden willie and then made my way home.

And now I’m sitting here in my new shoes ** (oooh they sure are comfy!) typing up a blog post. Cos I’ve got nothing better to do.

*No way in hell did I pay that much. I paid less than $40. What I REALLY want now are these. Can’t wait til they hit the discount shops….

** I have a thing for born and boc shoes…
