Well, didn’t get my chairs. Truely nothing fits in the back of a Kia. I was so annoyed I almost ordered them and had them shipped. Would have cost me an extra $80.00 so that seemed kinda stupid for a couple of $100.00 chairs. And they’re almost out of the color I want. It must not be destined.
Bought some beautiful glasses at the glass outlet store. Not a set mind you. Two of four different kinds. Including a couple of martini glasses. Then went promptly to the liquor sotre. My husband will be making me Appletinis tonight. I also bought a candle at the Health food store, and the scent was labeled as Nag Champa. I had never heard of it before. Love the smell.
Louise, I tried all of your recipe first. Pretty darn good. I think that’s the closest so far to what I was looking for. I’m trying to find soup like my grandma used to make. Next time I will try yours again but with more potato, less flour.
My husband is wandering around behind me discussing the rapture, the anti-Christ and the Left Behind Movies. Since I got sick last night, he stayed up late and watched one. It’s going to be a long night.
Good Night everyone.
Good Morning Everyone. It’s a beautiful morning. (ooooo. Sidetracked – a commercial for the next episode of Hereos just came on) Anywho….It’s reasonably warm out, and there is a nice thick fog just starting to break up. I love the way the world looks through fog.
Someone in Xanga land a few months ago is the cause of my one and only plan for today. Going to buy two chairs. We saw them at BigLots last night while on a search for a teapot. They are listed as rocker/recliner/gliders and they are on metal frames. Which in our house is very very important. The xanga -ian who mentioned them a couple of months ago said they were very comfortable and so we tried, and they are. I wish I could remember who it was that was talking about the chairs. Corey is worried about the boxes fitting in a car. This is the only problem with having two Kias. Nothing fits in them. Of course if I had traded in the Rio for the sportage a couple of weeks ago as I was talking about we would be all set.
Anyone like Potato soup? I’m playing with potato soup recipes this week to find a perfect mix. I keep ending up with grainy texture but I think that might actually have moe to do with the potato than the recipe. I think I probably need a specific type of potato – maybe russet?
Last night I did something I never do. I made myself sick. I had a headache all day yesterday and I think I mixed too many medicines. I had allergy Eyedrops, allergy nasal spray, allergy pills and then I added in melatonin and Comfort Forte, and a big glass of wine (not all at once but over a few hours) and I went from feeling very headachey to BAM very very sick and then double BAM asleep. I did however sleep well. Except for the brief moments when someone kept microwaving something and waking me up.
Off to enjoy my day. Do the same.
~EDIT – Oops. Forgot. Also had Tylenol in my caustic mix, and I do have one other plan. Going to the Libby Glass Outlet Store to pick up some new glasses.
That was so cute! I really did have a customer call and say they were thirty miles away so I had to scramble and leave my entry unfinished. And I’m so glad I did. What great responses I got! So while you all were writing me such wonderful comments I was meeting with a customer and then having lunch at the new Irish Pub downtown. I thought it was excellent for those of you in Toledo. Nice little upscale bar. Good food, not to expensive. And it was nice sitting with someone that I usually only speak to on the phone for a few hours.
My whole point to the previous entry was about needless worrying. I think sometimes it’s generational. I think people in my age range are brought up (especially women) to worry about everything, and to take the blame for everything that goes wrong. And for some of us it eventually backfires. I worry so much, that every once in awhile I go the complete other direction and I just don’t care about anything. It’s strange, because I’m a pretty positive person, but I also am able to worry alot. It’s an interesting balance. I think it’s the fall out from women who hit their teenage years in the 50’s. By the time they had kids, they were so conflicted. Were they all about hippy-ness and freelove, or were they supposed to be June Cleaver.
Now I’m just rambling, so off I go. I hope you all keep on talking to me, for years and years.
Today I have been thinking about worrying.
I worry that someone will damage this Mercedes that is parked outside of my office window (much more interesting sentance if I said, parking inside of my office window) and that someone will be angry that I didn’t notice it was damaged. Isn’t that stupid?
I worry that someday I’m going to come in to work and the doors will be locked. I don’t mean like, oops, forgot my key kind of locked.
I worry that my husband will never understand the joys of family and friendship. Though strangely his bond with his dog gives me hope.
I worry that someday I’ll wake up and say, oh…it’s too late. Just in general. Too late to start a new hobby, to late to start a new life, to late to do what I really want, to late to make a friend.
I worry that my family will never experience true peace and happiness.
I worry that I’m just going to keep blowing up like a puffer fish until I’m round.
I worry that someday I’m going to get annoyed with this plant that I’ve been cultivating for two years and break it in two.
I worry that one of my customers is going to call and say, I’m about 30 miles away from your building! Dang – GOTTA GO!
It amazes me how much I can like people that I’ve never met in person. This whole technology thing is pretty nifty.
Had a nice Christmas. Funniest thing was at my sisters house. We both work tan cordorouy pants with white sweaters. Then I realized we had both wrapped presents in identical wrapping paper. They we kept saying the same things at the same time. I think there was a fourth thing, but now I can’t remember it!
My sister gave me the funniest little thing. It’s a prism with a solar powered motor. So when the sun strikes it, it also (in theory) strikes the solar panel and turns the prism. Of course, we have no sun. I have a front window with, I think 8 prisms in it. My webcam is now focused on the window, just in case the sun came out this morning while I was at work. It didn’t.
Does anyone have a jewelry cleaner that works? Is it sonic? or steam? Love to hear any opinions. I’m going to go shop for one online in a few moments.
And just in case “you” are reading this, quick instructions for flying in your dreams:
Never fly in the sky. Start in a room. And don’t push off like superman. Just lift your heels like you are a ballerina going upon your toes, and as you lift, just keep going and slowly lift off the ground a few inches. This way you’ll never fall. Once you get the hang of just floating a few inches off of the ground, then you can start getting fancy.™
This morning I’m watching the Yule Log. Why did no one point this out to me berore? It’s a HighDef Channel that shows a roaring fire and plays Christmas music. Beautiful! I’ve tried to stop in at all of the Xangas that have given me a gift over the last year. I hope I didn’t miss any.
Have a wonderful Holiday.
Did you see my new header? I have shamelessly plagerized it from a lovely womans Xanga. She always write words that touch me and I thought this particular sentance was so right on the mark. Of course if you are seeing this from a subscription window, you’ll have no idea what I’m talking about.
Last night, I slept again,
And I dreamed:
- About spending time with my mother shopping (she’s been gone for a few years)
- Spending time with an old best friend who stopped speaking to me years ago.
- Being able to levitate and fly.
And that’s a pretty good way to end one day and start the next. I hope you all enjoy your day.
