Dagan and Leah came over after work and we ate, but never did get around to doing Sacred Circle. They were tired and wanted to leave early, so I went to my list of techie requests. Turned out they still didn't leave early--hehe! Three computers with minor issues and a chatty mom can really be a drag, eh? LOL!
Karma actually stayed out in the room for most of the time they were here until she finally hid under the end table. We always wonder if she is going to change and become more sociable. Evidence more of our optimism than Karma's ability to change. :)
Dagan had been sitting in my little lounger and after they left I went to sit down and the foot thingie got jammed part way up. I got out and managed to pull and jiggle it up and back down. Tried again--same thing. Harder to get it back down again the second time. So, I left it and called Leah (our Tool Girl). Just had to tease Dagan about breaking my chair, because he has the magic touch with computers--hehe! They're going to stop by after work tonight.
Seriously, tho--this chair of mine is 14 years old and I've had troubles with the foot lever a couple other times in the last few years but Leah flipped it over and was able to fix it. So it wasn't Dagan--LOL! We're hoping she can work her tool magic again.
So, in the meantime--I decided to use the burgundy footstool--which is from the broken chair in the garage--and I've been using with the glider rocker (Karma's chair). Yes, I have a hodgepodge of furniture--hehe! Anyways, this plan did not work well. Moving the footstool instantly thrust it to the top of the Karma interest scale--ROFL!
Karma is used to climbing up on my lounger and curling up between and across my legs. Well, once she took over the footstool...
...there was no room left for my feet! She doesn't understand what the problem is. I finally gave her a ride on the footstool back over by the glider rocker. She hasn't relinquished possession yet. Snoring softly at the moment, as a matter of fact. ;)
I wanted to tell you about a movie I watched a couple days ago:
Get Low.
I loved this movie!
There's a trailer you can watch on this imdb link.
Oscar winners Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek team up to tell the true story of irascible Felix Bush, a backwoods Tennessee loner who planned his funeral in 1938 while he was still around to attend -- and enjoy -- the proceedings. Director Aaron Schneider's deft blend of dark humor and poignancy also stars Bill Murray as Frank Quinn, the huckster owner of a failing funeral home, and Lucas Black as his dubious assistant.
I know everybody has different tastes in movies. But if you like quieter, slowly unfolding, character driven movies with great acting and subtle humor, then you will absolutely love this movie! It is "based on" a true story, so it shouldn't have said "true story" as it does in this Netflix description (watched all the bonus material). That Lucas Black is a fine young actor. Watched him in several movies since he was just a kid. And Duvall...what can I say. Just had to tell you how much I enjoyed this one. :)
Anyways, still one below zero up here in Fargo. Cloudy, white-gray, winter day. I'm going to order groceries for delivery tomorrow. I'm still on days. Life is good! :):)
"Heaven and earth are threads from one loom."
Shaker proverb


  1. The chair that Ryan always sits in when he's here watching TV is a very old recliner. (older than your chair) We need a new one but haven't gone shopping for one. The foot mechanism lever can get stuck on that chair sometimes, too. Not to mention you kinda "sink into" the seat. :\ We have a hodgepodge of furniture, too. Nothing was bought as a set or at the same time.

    Karma sure looked comfy on that foot stool.

    We have mostly sunny skies this afternoon, but the air is cold. Thermometer reads 38 at the moment, but it's supposed to get down in the low teens during the night. I'm pretty sure we're safe from the below zero temps now, tho. *knocks on wood*

    I watched the trailer for "Get Low", and I loved what I saw. Looks like a great movie. Thanks for the tip. :)

  2. That shaker quote is really profound.

    Kuriosity's midddle name is Karma.

  3. AliceKay--Surprise! The chair suddenly worked again today, so I emailed them and told them they could forget the run over here. I have my fingers crossed that it keeps working. :)
    I hope you don't have any more really cold-cold weather anymore this year.
    Let me know if you see that movie! :)

    Iggy--I thought it was quite profound, also! :)
    Miss Karma--anything new or in a new spot...hehe! ;)

  4. We have a hodgepodge of furniture here as well. ;)

    I hope Dagan made good progress with all the things on your list of technical issues, and that Leah can sort out your chair.

    Silly Karma!

    Sorry about the chair problems but I guess they break down just like our old bodies do, hopefully it can be fixed for you :o) Its so funny how cats will pick spots to sleep, my cat is in love with hubbys chair and when he wants to sit down he gets an earful from her for sure. I havent seen that movie but I sure do love Robert Duvall :o)

  6. Tori--Leah takes care of my online "tabs" and Dagan checks out my updates. The old desk computer had been suddenly refusing to work. Dagan tinkered with it, said leave it on, and if it didn't come back to life by the next day...well, it was declared dead. So it will probably be leaving with Dagan and Leah next time they come. Dagan uses the various parts. I still have my trusty laptop, thank goodness! :)

    And I was lucky the chair snapped back into shape on it's own. :)

  7. I have a hodgepodge of furniture too. Too funny about Karma and the footrest. lol I hope your lounger chair behaves itself.

    I haven't heard of that movie but I've noted it down. The trailer was great! I like Robert Duvall and Sissy you remember her in Carrie?

  8. Serena--The chair is behaving so far...knock on wood! ;) Yes, I remember her in Carrie! I think you might like this movie. :)


I appreciate your visits and comments.
Have a really great day! :) :)
