a MAZE ing

Thursday & Friday

On site on Thursday! Got up early and hauled over to the Island and got to fiddle with the new camera taking photos and whatnot. Got a new DSLR camera at work. Damn it takes nice pictures. Need to learn the settings and brush up on what I learned in my various classes. But dang yeah, the new photos look great. Once we get proper lights for our set up, we'll be flying!

Departed work, got some fast food on the way home, got home and chilled and watched TV and stayed up a bit late.

Got out of bed early on Friday and did some work from home. Our eBay listings have been off the chain lately.

Then once I hit my deadline, I got dolled up and put on my cowboy boots and went to meet Karen at Pheasant Farms to do a corn maze! Whooo! And when I arrived I texted her and she said she was also in the parking lot...but I couldn't see her car. Turns out I was at the right farm, but she was thinking of the corn maze by the put put golf near Bremerton. How are there enough corn mazes in Kitsap to create such a corn maze confusion? But I was only 7 minutes away, so I drove over and we met up and did the maze! It was on her 30 Before 30 list, and it was pretty fun. We had to find six different locations within the maze and punch our card. Location #6 and #2 were very difficult! Not really an enter and find your way to the exit type maze. But lots of fun to walk around and talk and maybe take a few shortcuts.

Back at Karen and Rob's house, we had dinner and talked more and the house has some coats of paint on the interior. It's coming together! Had such a nice visit with my dear friend. We also talked about water heater problems and solutions. Such as what is up when you don't get enough hot water to fill a tub BUT the heater does trigger the too hot measuring thing.

Topped off the air in my tires, topped off the gas in my tank, and got some oil to top off the oil in my car tomorrow once the engine has cooled. Not a bad day at all.

I don't have any Halloween plans. I'll probably do some work, maybe see if Celia wants to watch some spoopy movies. Anyway, whooo so long October!

fire power

M - W

Last morning with Bodi went well. He let me sleep in even! What a sweet puppy. After breakfast I went over to Celia's and we took the boys for a walk. Went out to the point and saw great mycology. I headed out around 4ish to drop off Bodi. Met up with Boss in Poulsbo and when Bodi saw her, he was elated as usual. It was a quick switch around.

I swung by Goodwill to check out their denim jacket collection, but none were worth buying. I did find some rad earrings. One was large and jangly and ceramic. Very big.

From Silverdale, I went to Seabeck to hang with Ma and Pa for a little bit. A nice brief visit. Then I went back home.

Home was cold.

Tuesday I made a fire in the fireplace and sat in front of it. I did some work. I ate some s'mores. Basically relaxed. And today I didn't light a fire. Caught up on work emails. Did some more work from home. Watched a ton of Rick and Morty. Working on site tomorrow and going to a corn maze on Friday. Fun!

I for one welcome the rain

Friday & Saturday & Sunday

Since Ma & Pa are my main blog readers, I tend to skimp when I'm hanging with them. Sorry mom and dad!

So I had a nice two nights in Seabeck. Did a little bit of work, but mostly I hung out and mooched food and Bodi got lots of pets and extra play time. We took him on the Anderson Hill Loops where he was very well behaved on his leash. For lunch we did a takeaway order at Origami Sushi and ate it in the park. Bodi begged but wasn't rewarded. I had a lychee bubble tea. Mmm! And a spring roll and sushi. Mmm! We finished the rest, a vegetable medley, back at home. I did some work and Ma and Pa watched Phryne Fisher. Bodi helped himself to various beds in the house and the door had to be closed on the pantry or else he would get into the trash. Bad Bodi!

Dad made a cool little box support for the wifi booster so that it could be placed outside (it was too bulky for the power outlet) (and it needed a place to be put to be slightly protected from the elements). Dad is so good at problem solving like that. I set it up outside upon my return and booyah it works better! I am writing from in front of the fireplace right now with better internet than I got on the porch. Hopefully this keeps up.

Today I slept in after taking Bodi on his morning poop walk. I had a scramble and joined Celia and Corbie for a little nature hike. The doggies were rambunctious and got wet. Hurray it's been raining! Nourish the plants oh lovely rain.

Hung out with Celia for a bit and chatter and kept the dogs at bay. Bodi gave the cats a mean eye. He's not an attack dog but I didn't let him say hello. Sam would swipe him.

I donated to the Radiotopia fundraiser that's happening right now. Went for the teeshirt of my choice (going for the dazzle camouflage 99% design) and challenge coin reward tier. If I listen to more than a movies worth of a networks podcasts each month, I owe it to at least back them for less than the cost of a movie ticket. It's the one way that "for less than the price of a cup of coffee!" reasoning works for me. So now I back Radiotopia and Maximum Fun. And one podcast I participate in the forum for answered my question in the latest episode. So that's pretty big!

Did some more work from home. Got a fire going. Warmed the house up nice and good.
