This is actually a big stretch and yawn from the top view--hehe!
After the yawn--a comfortable collapse. Karma's naps are not interrupted for long. Not if she can help it--hehe!
Seems to be a familiar sight in the parking lot this winter with all our below zero weather. They pushed the car on the left backwards out of the parking spot so that they could get nose to nose with the car on the right so they could jump it. Didn't take them very long and the little car was up and running. You really don't want to travel around up here in the winter without jumper cables. There are even a lot of kind strangers who will give you a jump.
The last book came yesterday!
All these new books and craft supplies and I have not gotten going on any of them. Been busy with the books I had already started and the spiritual journal and meditation and such. Been organizing spots here and there around the apartment. Where do the days go?!
Leah got the pictures uploaded and I worked on postings last night. So we finally got some of the new "Blank or Pick A Sentiment" cards up on the etsy shop--tada! Takes us forever sometimes, but we do get to things eventually--hehe! I think the only thing we really move quickly on with the etsy shop is the mailing, but you have to get up new things in order to be mailing anything out--ROFL!! :)
Anyways, the etsy shop kept me busy for a while yesterday. I did stamp up a few images so that I can play with the new copic markers. I got that far, anyways. ;)
Caroline comes this afternoon. We may have snow off and on for the next four days. Oh--and I enrolled in the online class that goes along with the Debbie Ford book I ordered. It starts on the 17th and goes thru Feb. 7th, I think. I have homework--hehe! Pages 1-77 is the preferred reading before you start the course. And I need a journal for this class, too. Maybe after I have read the first 77 pages I'll have a better idea which journal to pick (have a few never been used journals).
Haven't been feeling too badly--just have been very tired. Moving in low gear. Not in a bad way. Very mellow and tired and happy, if that makes any sense. Might be the dark, cloudy days, too. Exhaustion is just a part of the fibro, too, tho. Chronic fatigue. Noodle days. But I am in very good spirits. :)
Happy Tuesday! Don't let the world get you down! :):)

  1. Sounds like you are getting more accomplished lately than I have!! Great job! I hope you enjoy your class. And I'm curious to see how you like your markers!!!

  2. My daughter's car broke down yesterday on her way to work. Luckily she had jumper cables and some nice man helped her get her car started and she went right back home and took it to the mechanic. It's amazing how the simplest thing can cause such chaos - she just needed a new battery. Fortunately her old one was still under warranty.

    I'm impressed with all you've accomplished - maybe I need a few snow days! Karma is precious. Jackson has a little stretch he does where he pushes his front legs down and it's the cutest thing you can imagine. I need to check out your Etsy shop. Is it linked on your blog?? Going to look now :-)

    Stay warm!

  3. slow and steady gets the job done. The class sounds interesting. I hope you really enjoy it.

    Snow here too. Ugh.

  4. Oh yeah, I've known quite a few people with fibro. Sounds like it has a huge p.i.t.a. factor. My god but that cat's pretty!

    Wow I can just imagine the car trouble folks have up there in all that snow and extreme cold temps. I loved the pics of Karma, she sure does love that bed lol If I knew my cat would sleep in one I would get her one right now she just tries and hogs up the doggie pillow hehe. I hope you enjoy your class and your reading :o) I hope you are having a good week also, HUGS

  6. Karma sure is enjoying that bed. :)

    When temps get below zero around here, cars sometimes end up needing a jump or tow. I've been there a few times myself. We always carry jumper cables in our vehicles...cuz you just never know when you might need them.

    I hope you enjoy your class. It does sounds interesting.

    I'll have to check our your Etsy shop again when I get some free time. Posting your products to the site sounds a bit time consuming, but I guess that's the nature of the business.

    I agree with Deanna...slow and steady. *hugs*

  7. Jeannie--I finally played a little with the markers! Fun! I'll be checking out youtube for videos on how to use them--including the one you mentioned. :):)

    Donna--What a nice man to help her out! There are such nice people in the world. They just don't get all the press that the bad people do--hehe! ;)
    You should get a video of Jackson doing his little stretch. :) Yes--I have the links on the blog. Hope you found it.

    Deanna--Slow and steady...well, I'm more like puttering in spurts--ROFL!

    Tatty--Yup-can have a big PITA factor--hehe!! Don't let Karma hear you. Cats have enough ego to begin with--ROFL!! ;)

    Lynn--Funny-that bed came from Dagan and Leah's cats who never used it. Karma wouldn't have anything to do with it for over a year, I think. I ended up using it to throw all her cat toys in. Took all the toys out one day and poof! It got really interesting. Especially with it being winter and the floors are colder--LOL!! I'm surprised she still likes it. The thrill may pass and she'll never go near it again or she will love it the rest of her days. Cats. Gotta love'em.
    Hope you're having a good week, too! :)

  8. AliceKay--I think it is so funny that Karma does suddenly love that bed now. Silly girl.

    The class/book do sound interesting. And appropriate to what's been going on with me lately, too, I think. I'll find out, eh? ;)

    Yes, I think all the parts of the posting on etsy are very time consuming. Leah and I each spent hours just to get the few new things up that we did--and we even split the task. We'd rather make the products than post them, obviously--ROFL! Leah works full time, of course, and they are always busy with this and that--so it takes her quite a while to get to taking all the photos and then uploading them all. Then I write up descriptions and post them. We decided to do more simple, general descriptions for similar items so that it doesn't take forever. We're learning. Slow and steady--hehe! ;)

  9. Glad your last book arrived. Sounds like you have plenty to keep you busy.

    I hope you enjoy that class you enrolled in.

    There's something about this time of year that makes most people feel sort of drained of energy, and having your physical issues on top of it wont be helping.

  10. Everyone likes to nap these cold winter days..Karma has the right idea! Sounds like you are keeping busy!:)

  11. Tori--I almost wonder if I am not fighting getting sick, too. Harder for me to tell as I already ache all over all the time like I have the flu and have IBS issues, too--ROFL! ;)

    Connie--This is the time of year to want to snuggle in with a blanket, that's for sure. :):)

  12. Puttery spurts... Sounds like me... cept its more putter than spurts.

    Streeeeeeeeeeeetchhhhhhhhhh Karma!

  13. Iggy--You have to be in really low gear to spurt up to putter speed--ROFL! ;)
    Glad you're finally feeling better. :):)


I appreciate your visits and comments.
Have a really great day! :) :)
