tappa tappa tappa

Proper keyboard! Thanks Dad! It goes clack clack clack and all the keys work, though now I have to adjust to a raised keyboard, because the one on my laptop has flatter keys. And I have to relearn proper key uses, because some of my keys haven't worked for many many months. Ha!

Tuesday I edited the brochure and got my duties for the next two days. Pretty big responsibilities! It's a steep learning curve but it'll be good to know how to list things on websites and stuff. I also spent a lot of the day sitting in front of the fire while it burned. I read and snacked and drank tea.

I was woken up by the septic system high water alarm. I shut off the alarm, double checked the code, called Dad to be like "what the hell why would this go off, I haven't been running a 10 hour shower??". It's still a bit of a mystery because when he arrived the tank was very low. Dad dug out some ditches, and together we stretched out some drainage tubeing. I whipped up a little egg & bacon snack with my special Trill mocha as an afternoon snack for Dad the hard worker. And I resumed doing my work from home regarding finding a printer for the approved brochure designs, and then worked on setting up accounts and research and just reading through pages of stuff.

Then Dad & I went to the Geoduck Tavern for lunch. I had beef dip and tea, he had a burger and coke. We ate a bunch of fries, but he also got a salad. Healthy eating papa!

Work resumed, with a break for tea and laundry and inktober. I think I'll tuck into bed now, and start early tomorrow. Such a steep learning curve, but once I figure it out, whoo! I just wish some of these sites had upload tests.

I'm going to have a Friendsgiving at my place! Got a few confirmed guests. Can't wait! Something to look forward to.

Oopsie whoopsie, I'm behind again. Left off Friday and now it's Monday. And my N key is out as well as my H key, so now I'm supplementing with an onscreen keyboard, which actually seems to go a bit faster. I hope I don't lose more keys though.

Ma and Pa came over on Saturday and brought food and Seabeck whiskey and their company! Dad gave me some tips on chopping wood, and I helped chop and stack. We had salad and salmon and played Skip-Bo (Mom won) and watched Hot Fuzz. Nice day. They also helped fix the leaking toilet. All it needed was a new seal. And for it to be removed and replaced...not the easiest task but Dad is super helpful! And he makes a mean mini omlette with local chanterelles. I was up early on Sunday, and so I got to work on my brochure for work! Did a few hours, got some feedback, then edited, then more feedback on Monday and more editing. After I slept way in....good to get the lethargic out.

Scanned family photos too. Lots of cute ones of me as a blonde wee baby.

So yeah, not a bad couple days. Good to have company. Good to have work.
