We've had some sunny mornings where Karma could catch some rays...
...and some dark days. Sometimes in the same day--LOL!
Really cooled off!! Been 50s-60s during the days and in the 30s at night! More like late fall/early winter weather. Despite the dark days there hasn't been any rain that I've noticed and the workmen are busy each morning bright and early.
My order from SuzyScraps finally arrived--all of it!
I now have all the refills for the discontinued Ancient Page ink pads. In fact, every ink pad we have now has a refill except one...that isn't discontinued. ;) Not bad.
And what have I been doing all week?
You can see the floor in the bedroom!! Stop laughing. Yes, I need a stool to feed the fish up on top of the dresser. Some of us are short on one end. ;)
I have made tremendous progress in here, but don't get too excited because I still have all the drawers in another dresser to sort through and neither of these shelves is finished yet and...
...remember the sliding number puzzle? ROFL! Now I have various empty boxes in the bookcase in the hallway and stacked next to it...that I will use as I sort and organize. It seems never-ending, doesn't it? LOL!
But, I do think I am about halfway done in the bedroom now--tada! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel...and I am headed for the light, folks! Ahhh! :):)
After a break.
I will be on R&R (rest and recovery) for a while again. I am about 150 blog posts behind and have 80 emails and comments to go through...which is good, I guess...since I have no TV. :(
Yup! My cursor to the left method only fooled the mentally challenged Windows Media Player for a day. Then it decided it wasn't even going to open up at all for me--period. I've emailed Dagan, but I'm not sure if he'll know what to do with it, either. He'll check online, but they're super busy with the house and I told him I knew he wouldn't be able to do anything about it for quite a while.
They're wiring the house for internet right now in the evenings after work and then leaving for Minneapolis for his annual heart/pacemaker check-up on Friday. I told him it looks like it's recording shows, anyways, and I do have Netflix--knock on wood. [And a ton of books on my TBR (to be read) stack and letters to write]. So, I have stayed away from going anywhere near Media Player (TV) the last couple days because I can still use the internet and get to Netflix. I don't want Media Player's nasty attitude to spread, you know, and crash the entire computer for good. *sigh* TV has gotten complicated in my world. Oh well, I'd be much more upset if I lost the internet and couldn't use my laptop. ;)
Meanwhile, the construction goes on. Looks like maybe a huge building might be going in. They have been digging out earth and hauling it away.
Which made me wonder if that is what is being dumped in the other noisy spot--LOL!
Karma keeps her ears open to all the interesting new sounds...
...even when she's trying to relax.
But she's no watch dog.
She's softly snoring next to me in her cat bed as I speak. The beeping and rumbling may be interesting, but not enough to keep her from her numerous naptimes. ;)
Well, have a good weekend. Oh, and my back held up pretty well...but I promise I will ignore the bedroom...and the hallway...for a couple of days or maybe till Monday. Even though I do see that very tempting end-light...that was a lot of lifting for me, so I'll be good. Maybe I can manage to catch up online little by little...and see what everyone's been up to while I've been away this week. So nice of you all to keep me company while I recover--LOL! ;)
Be well and happy!!
OMG! I'm turning into a genius! ROFL!! Thanks, Ben. ;)
