Today is T for Tuesday over at Elizabeth's Altered Book Lover blog. You just need to show whatever it is you are drinking somewhere in your photo/photos. This morning, as I was preparing to journal, I snapped a picture. Letters to reply to on the table and coffee in my thermal mug--all set to go. The wire rack thingie just beyond my mug on the table is my laptop holder. I often either watch craft/art videos or listen to Pandora in the mornings, but not today.
I wondered what Karma was complaining about when I was busy switching loads of laundry. Apparently, she wanted me to cover her with the throw--LOL! Finally crawled under the folded throw by herself, I see. (I did cover her with one layer after I took this picture.)
We had a rainstorm during the night.
The proof is always in the puddle. ;)
Oh, remember that plastic platter I ordered that came broken from "Your Party Delivered"...an affiliate of Amazon or whatever they call those companies? Well, they only reimbursed me $11.56 when the platter cost me $13.60. So I emailed the company to ask why. They told me they charged me a 15% restocking fee because I hadn't contacted them. I wrote them back and said that I had gone the normal refund route through Amazon for the return and didn't know I also had to contact them personally--plus--how can they charge a restocking fee for a broken item, in the first place.!? They quickly reimbursed me the additional $2.04. But I was not reimbursed for the cost of mailing it back to them. I had asked about that, too, but got no reply. Geez! What a hassle. But I do not like being cheated. Even for $2.04. If I knew what it had cost to mail it back (Dagan and Leah can't remember who mailed it back, let alone how much it was) I would make a stink about that, too. It's not my fault it came all cracked. (Maybe it had been restocked--LOL!) At least I got my full refund. ;)
What kind of day is it going to be up here in Fargo? Well, I just walked over and took these pictures. This one I faced to the left...
...and this one I faced to the right. Anybody's guess. We have dark clouds blow by rapidly quite often without a drop of rain.
It's 80 degrees and humid. I am going to have to close it up for a few hours and turn on the AC. But it is supposed to be back down in the 50s again tonight. It was so chilly last night that I had to shut the place up in the middle of the night. Feels like October! Weird!
Have a productive day!! :):)
