The sun didn't last for long yesterday...
...but while it did...
...I moved a chair over by the patio door...
...so Karma could catch the last rays.
Woke up this morning to the first little bit of snow I've seen.
It's 14 degrees right now and solid grey outside.
I did get all the card fronts cut out.
And Dagan and Leah approved my tiny bit of bling idea so I'll start working on that. Saturday (with or without me, I never know how I will be for travel) Leah's planning on going to the craft stores to buy card stock, etc. I've been feeling pretty decent so the odds are favorable. ;)
We got sidetracked last night. I blame David Blaine. I had recorded his TV special and we ended up watching that while we ate dinner...and until it was done--LOL! Since Dagan and Leah didn't arrive until after 7pm (Leah's working the later shift again) and it was quarter to nine before we were finished
being grossed out by Blaine being amazed by the talented crazy man...I just wanted them to help me with the junk drawer box.
They certainly did!!
This box had been piled high and was overflowing!
Looks pretty good now--TaDa!!
We threw a lot of things away and I have these three bags for give-away.
And Dagan had a surprise for me!!
His old tablet !!
Leah will help set it up more and explain things to me on Saturday after craft shopping...but WOW! Happy me!! A new toy! I've never had a tablet before. Nice! :) :)
Caroline asked to switch to today instead of Tuesday. That happens sometimes with her new job (she has two positions there now) and I certainly don't mind. I'm always here, anyways. I'd rather have her than get anyone new, of course. Caroline has been coming to clean every two weeks for must be around seven years now--maybe longer. :)
Anyways, another shorter (for me) post. Hopefully I will have things to show you on Sunday, for sure...unless plans change, of course. Leah does have plans earlier in the day and they could possibly go long. We're always flexible. But for now--today--I am exhausted. I wondered why I was wide awake at 2:30am and couldn't get to sleep--sure Dagan and Leah were here a lot longer than they normally are and left at almost 11pm and I do need time to unwind, but 2:30? Then I remembered I had shut off my pill alarm...but had forgotten to take my melatonin. So I took it and got to bed by 3am. I guess I do need to take it, don't I? LOL!
And, since I've turned into a day person, Karma has morphed into one of those cats who wake you up for morning food (her treat of a tablespoon of canned food). She sometimes cries annoyingly in the hallway but keeps her distance. Knows better than to try to jump on me or anything so intrusive...and risky. If I tell her "No!" she usually stops...after a couple more cries as a show of protest and defiance. (Karma finds the obvious display of her subordinate position hard to swallow.)
But if it gets to be a late morning for me and I am snuggled in bed past about 9am...Miss Karma has been known throw herself on the kitchen floor and cry piteously...where she pretends there's no way she could possibly hear me telling her to shut up from that great distance.
Oh--did I wake you? So sorry. I was just crying to myself in my misery as I was wasting away from this dire hunger...but I am so delighted that you're here to save me! (leg rub...leg rub...purring loudly...sucking up)
Sometimes she wins these occasional morning battles now that I am a day person. But don't let on that I told you. I am still the boss around here. ;)
Have a battle-free day!! :):)

But the wheel that does the squeaking is the one that gets the grease.”
