Proof that even on our cloudy, overcast days...
...off to the east in Moorhead somebody saw a glimpse of sunshine. ;)
Today, though, has actually been sunny! Cooler--only 62 degrees right now and there was a frost advisory north of us last night--but today it's sunny!! Too cool for Karma to want to lay about on the porch, so she snoozed on "her" chair.
Cats can become deeply relaxed. Believe it or not, she was awake when I took this picture.
Okay--the piston pen. I finally asked on the Goulet's live stream program last night why my piston pen was evaporating so fast and was that normal? (Never did get a return email, but they just got their help back and said they are behind on emails and blogs because they had to focus on orders.) Anyways, they said there's holes in the cap and that can cause quicker evaporation. It was hard to get a close-up of this tiny hole that I found on the side of the cap--was the only hole I found?
What I did was take a tiny little piece of poster tack and squeezed it into the hole. Looks huge, doesn't it?
But it is very small as you can see from a regular shot. We'll see if that slows down the evaporation. I mean, good grief! I can lose an inch of ink in a little over a week! My apartment must be very dry, eh? I do like the pen, tho, so wish me luck! :)
My days and nights are still flipped. So, I am often going down in the middle of the night to check my mail. Twice within the past week the elevator has looked like this. :(
Pee or whatever it is all over the floor. Even almost looked like a couple poop smears? Dog? I've often wondered if it was a dog, but then you can see where they pee down the wall in the corner...
...and it would have to be a pretty tall dog.
Why do people do things like this? And even if it was their dog, why don't they clean it up? I'd be mortified if my dog peed all over the elevator, you know? Oh well. Sorry to complain, but it hadn't happened for a while and I had gotten my hopes up that maybe they had moved. :(
Anyways, Leah is running about doing errands and is going to stop by quickly to make a graduation card later tonight, I think. BTW--Dagan and Leah and even Caroline do not use the elevator and take the stairs. I don't blame them. There's also often snot wiped or spit dripping down the wall and they scratch all over the door with their keys. Right now there's a swastika--that they had to draw three separate times before they got all the angles going the right way--LOL! These are obviously well-read, intelligent folk we're dealing with.
Clear out my negatives.
I think I need to watch one of those 10 minute relaxation videos. ;)
Well, I have finally started coloring the cupcakes (for the birthday cards) with the copic markers--another step to do 50 times--LOL! Always relaxing to color. :)
Yesterday I watched a movie from Netflix called I Am Number Four. If you like movies like X-Men, I think you'd like this movie. It is set up to have sequels and I hope they make them. :)
I'm not going to let the urine soaked elevator get to me. (I feel so sorry for the cleaning person!!) I'll continue to wear rubber soled shoes and press the buttons with my mail key. ;)
