and the month is almost gone

Might have a lead on our chairs for work. I edited photos and organized the website. I accidentally turned off my alarm, so I wasn't out of bed till past noon. Whoops.

Trying to eat more salad. Salad out of a bag without many toppings beyond dressing, yeah...but still...veggies! Yay!

I got two mice in the glue trap, so I drowned them. I should get one of those electric mice wards. They only seem to be getting into that one room, but I don't want them getting further into the house. Least of all my food!

So mice. Work. Salad. And now English arctic murder drama: Fortitude! Luke Treadaway is in it. I like them Treadaway brothers.

west virginia strikes again


Working at home continues! Did I mention that I was sent back to home work? I snacked. Made a fire. Worked on the documents and getting stuff onto the online shop. Not really the most taxing of days.


Worked some more from home but the main highlight was Dad! Dad came over to help haul some wood for firewood. I say help, he did most of the work. Some madrona had fallen, so we attached chains to some of the bits to the truck and pulled it out, and then cut it into smaller pieces ready for chopping. Got a good start to a new firewood stack going. We make a good team with all our hand signals, none of which are vulgar!

I also set out some glue traps to snag a mouse that has been in the dog room, and one of the traps got the mouse! But I...forgot to secure the trap. So it took some finding to locate the mouse. At which point we drowned it, just like I did in Missouri.

After our good day's work, we went to The Halfway House and got pie. I went for the chocolate which was tasty but not as good as the banana creme. I shall not speak of the crumble that Dad had.

He left while it was still daylight and I did my job stuff and had dinner and made a fire.

Now I've watched my TV and edited down the images I've previously torn from magazines, so that I can start a new compilation of images that I like. Gotta make a recycling trip soon. But first, more job work!

ladies who lunch


Worked on site! And will work on site again on Wednesday. Things change so quick, but I'm open to it! Good to be not tricky. I mainly photographed things, and printed out more box labels. Pretty soon one of the rooms in the house will open up and I'll have more space to work in!

I got through three boxes, so that was pretty good.

I swung by McDonald's on the way home and got junk food for dinner. I know I KNOW bad food is bad for you. And the bridge was up, so that added another half hour to getting back home. I listened to podcasts and played with my phone till traffic got moving. There are a lot of cops out on the roads, probably because there are not that many roads for people to drive on and those kids dying really makes them wanna crack down on speeding.


Met Karen at Monica's in Silverdale for lunch and we had a really nice chat! One of those multi hour conversations about all sorts of things, and I was left feeling like I still had so much more to talk with her about! She's so great. One perk of being up in this area, is I have some of my old friends back in conversation. Santa Cruz was lonely like that. Sometimes you need at least one person around who has seen you through your awkward stages.

We walked down to the park and looked at the birds in the feed store (people were blocking our puppy access). AND she gave me another free dress! This one was a freebie from work that wasn't her style at all. It's silk and has this great stripe on it. We were both ace fashionable as well, her in black pants and slippers and striped sweater with lightly curled hair and dangly earrings. Me in black pants, shoes, shirt, with my blood orange jacket. The most fashionable gals this side of the canal!

I swung by Trader Joe's and BevMo and got gyoza and signed up for membership discounts. Don't know how often I'll be near BevMo but I do pass by Silverdale whenever I visit Seabeck. Didn't go too crazy at TJ's. I could have. But I didn't. Though I did eat all the potstickers tonight, in two batches. No more potstickers for me. Womp womp.

I edited the photos I took and burned a CD with some of the jewelry photography I've done, to give to one of our clients.

And I got a fire going. Got the house warm and toasty.

At least I'm not scared of the dark...


Rolled out of bed and had some oatmeal and got laundry started, but I had to leave the house before folding it from the dryer. I set off for Port Orchard to see The Babadook at the Dragonfly! Ohh what a scary movie. I signed up for the VIP membership, so next time I'm at the theater I can grab my card and movies will be cheaper! Next movie will hopefully be A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.

The projection of the movie was questionable at times, but still a very scary movie! And the lead actress plays Phryne Fisher, yet I couldn't have guessed that in a months worth of guesses. Excellent horror movie, I covered my eyes at several points, AND it is directed by a lady so go her!

Afterwards I was wandering around P.O. a bit and saw a piercing place and was like "might as well get my other ear done" so I went in and picked out a little tigers eye stud, and the people in the shop were really nice, and it hurt so much less than the piercing guns at Piercing Pagoda. Like barely hurt. Such an easy little thing.

I met up with Marcus at Hopjacks for appetizers and a beverage, and we caught up on film and the future and plans. Nice to hang.

I swung by Target and got some hair dye and nail polish, and then Walgreens for the saline spray to use to keep my ear hole clean. Then back home just a little bit more body modified. Folded laundry.


Did a bit more work from home. Watched TV. Dyed my hair. Took care of my ear. Hung out with Celia for a little bit. All in all, a pretty mellow day. Working on site tomorrow, so it's off to bed for me!

But I may not be on site again after that (for the rest of the week). Still have stuff to do at home.
