As far as I know this is Karma's last day in "her" chair. Haven't heard any different, so I think they're coming with the loveseat tonight. :)
My Goulet order came on Monday. The tiny tub of silicone grease, 2 black and 2 orange blank Rhodia tablets, and I stocked up on the little rubber gaskets.
I finally cleared off the table from New Year's Eve...which meant a lot of scrubbing and a load in the wash of runner scarves from the top of dressers and bookcases. Took me most of the day yesterday. It's one of those "as long as I am cleaning this...then I should clean that" things that also happens once a year--LOL!
Slept with the bedroom window wide open last night again. This is so wrong. I don't often take pictures of the late day when the shadows cross my view. I went to take some shots of our brown January...
...when I spied people running around with short sleeves...
...or sweaters! Would you call those hats "Fargo" type hats that those little boys have on? LOL!
It just seems more like October or April. People are loving the novelty of it, but it just feels ominous to me.
I also cleaned and rearranged the end tables now that I will only have one next to me instead of the two of them, one on each side of my chair.
I also cleaned out three almost empty pens, switched up the two empty Preppys I had to eyedroppers and got all five of the new colors into pens. :) Just had to show you the variety I ended up with.
That Alt-Goldgrun is so different! It really is like a golden olive green. I wasn't sure if I would like it, but it is really cool! And the Blu Mare and Smaragdgran seem to be almost a pastel shade. Nice flow! I definitely see some Rohrer and Klinger somewhere in my future. ;)
Have to wrap this up quickly. I was so busy yesterday and today already, too. I got a stack of www.bookcrossing.com books ready for Caroline to take with her for the free table at her workplace. She'll be here in about an hour.
For those of you who are interested--I am also working on a new picture bookcard for John/Spruce in Nain. I'm recycling the box my GouletPens order came in and decided to send back all of John's bookcards that he returned to me. I managed to print off a few more pictures. Got to the last page and after it printed out the screen said it wouldn't print anymore until I put in a new yellow ink cartridge. Like it was meant to be--LOL! (The new cartridges should be here tonight if Leah remembers them.)
I want to have the letter done before they come tonight (to include it in the box) because Leah has the brown packing paper at her house so that she can wrap the box and bring it to the post office for me. I made up a sticker with his address on for her and also have a return address label. So, right now I am off to finish John's picture bookcard. I hope he understands that these are truly just for him. He's around 80, I believe, and lives in a remote area that can only be reached by plane in the winter. I don't know if he really understands about digital cameras.
So--off I go. I hope to have pictures of the new-to-me loveseat to post tomorrow! Whoohoo!! Love and hugs to everyone! :):)
