Been a very quiet week up here in Fargo. A sleep-thrown-off, noodly, owie-owie, fibro-flare week, but Karma is good company.
Just to be annoying, Blogger is not functioning normally this morning, either. Cut and paste isn't even working for me. Pictures showed up willy-nilly out of order and I had to spend time rearranging them. I can't highlight anything so far, so I may not be able to add color or change the font--we'll see. This is probably going to be quick anyways.
I made it over to my Federal Housing appointment on Monday. My worker, Deb, is retiring this year. Bummer for me. She will be greatly missed--nicest worker I have ever had. But I am happy for her, though.
Fargo Federal Housing is in a corner building--can look out the window of the waiting room and see the old Fargo Theater.
I do love the older buildings and the trees downtown.
Love the little touches like the wrought iron fence and the street light.
Being out and about all afternoon--well, it usually takes me a day or so to recover in the first place and then I didn't sleep well that night...and that's all it takes to set off a fibro flare--LOL! But, even when my body isn't having good days I usually am, regardless. ;) Karma gets more belly rubs and I watch more TV and movies, but it's all good.
This month I made an Amazon order (getting to be a monthly thing shopping at the online WallyWorld)--which has started to trickle in. Yes!! I DID order another desk calendar. That other one would have driven me crazy all year. Got one just like last year's, only with a turquoise cover.
I was so excited to see the familiar pages and feel the quality of the better paper under my fingers.
You know I wasn't feeling the best if it took me two days to even get started on organizing the calendar--LOL!
I make my own budget pages in the back. the top half is for the monthly bills and the bottom half is for my monthly NEED-to-order-this (highlighted, of course) and wish-to-order list. ;)
Got the old red leather holder back out, squeezed the calendar into it (cannot close it, but it doesn't matter), and placed it back on its wooden book stand on my desk. Ahhh! All is right with the world again. :):)
I got a late Christmas card from Jeannie, too. (Sorry, I can't make a link, either--what is with Blogger today?) Jeannie didn't mail the kindle until they got home to Germany because she forgot my address and the cord--ROFL!! She makes such pretty cards! Since I wasn't moving much this week I have already found me some free books from Amazon--whoohoo! Can hardly wait! Thanks, Jeannie!!
Besides Amazon, I made an order to Luminarte/Dreaming in Color for more Silks!! Had a great holiday coupon that saved me $25.00!! They included free gifts of a couple of pens and a set of tweezers, too, there in the front.
The owner, Leslie, is such a wonderful lady. I had accidentally hit one color twice and didn't notice it until I got my email invoice right afterwards. I emailed her and asked if she could replace it with another color I picked and she answered right away and took care of it. And they send their orders out so quickly--just amazing service.
The second box from Amazon came--with more kitty litter (love this stuff and lack of dust)...
....another Prism container with 18 compartments for my new Silks.
Yes, they had these two rattling around in the same box! I was actually shocked that the Prism container arrived in one piece--LOL! I wasn't up to organizing the colors yet, but I did get them into the container and up on the wall shelves. :)
Basically won't be up to much till I am back to my functioning normal. Sorry to leave you all hanging on the new year's eve info--don't worry, it's not earth-shattering news--but that's how my life goes these days. There are fibro ups and downs, but Karma and I just hang out. She's usually pretty good company--except when she gets into diva-mode on occasion--LOL!
We have been having a terribly windy, freezing rain storm. They're predicting 100% chance of snow now today--up to three inches--on top of all that ice. So, those of you dealing with this storm up here, please be careful walking and driving out there!! Sometimes it is not a bad thing to be feeling cruddy and be housebound--ROFL!! I'm sure glad I took my trash out yesterday. ;)
No, I can't change the font size or color because I cannot highlight anything today. And it's not my computer because everything works elsewhere. Let's hope Blogger is better by Monday, too. ;)
