Ugh. Sick here--am thinking I got it from the guy in the cube next to me, seems like a cold though my throat is fine so far. Drove home with the window down, the cold fresh air helped a bit for preventing puking in the car lol. Ugh ugh ugh. Have been sleeping off and on all evening, with time out for chicken soup a couple times.

As [personal profile] mirabile always says, it is *always* correct to punch a Nazi.

Apparently this is how we roll in Seattle.

Uh oh, I discovered a big patch of poison ivy behind the front bushes. I hate to attack plants, but I bought a big spray-bottle of weed killer and sprayed every leaf I could see. (Some of it is winding its way up the inside of a fat bush which may, sadly, become a casualty of the spraying.) Shiremom, Shiredad, and I are VERY allergic to poison ivy. We'll see how things look out there over the next week.

Shiremom and I both really enjoyed "August Rush". Thank you to everyone who recommended it!

In happy-happy news, I sat myself down yesterday, refused to be distracted, and wrote chapter 4 of my fluffy Cormallen story. Hooray! Now it just needs some polishing.

Pippin's been extra alert today, listening to the high winds whip the trees around, but it finally seems to be nap time. zzzzzzzzzzzz

Granny Squares

On the weekend, I learned how to make Granny Squares! I tried figuring it out from a book, but kept making mistakes. Once a month on Saturdays, one of the stores in my area has free drop-in crochet instruction, and I spent some time on it last August, but didn't quite get it. But now, it's finally clicked, and I can do it!

Instead of making more small squares, I'll keep making this one larger until I run out of yarn.

It's a birthday!

Click on thumbnail to expand my mindfulness minutes chart.

Still in fifth position overall, 59 60 minutes out of first. Can I catch him up? Doubt it! Might try though that's probably not "skillful" behavior. Still human apparently lol.

Happy Friday. Man am I glad to get there. Going to make my reservations for the Sandpiper today. Sadly my friend can't join me but we'll try another time. So now I have to decide what room to get balanced with having to pay for the whole thing myself (translation -- probably won't put myself on the top floor like we usually do :-)

How can I tell autumn is arriving? Harry starts demanding lap time.

Happy birthday, [personal profile] lindahoyland! I hope your boys are treating you with the delicate care you so richly deserve. Or at least refraining from knocking over cups and bowls and glasses and anything else that catches their eye. Well, Reuben's eye :-)

It's a birthday!

Happy Birthday to [personal profile] lindahoyland! I hope the lads brought you breakfast in bed (or at least extra snuggles), and that you enjoy your special day. You have so many friends who love you and your fur-family!


Reuben's Writing Challenge

To celebrate the anniversary of his adoption, Reuben is issuing a challenge.

... write a story of any length using these words

Mama’s milk is warm, and every sip of it leaves me content. Her purrs rock me to sleep, and her gentle nudges tell me when to wake. A pile of small soft gingers cling to her fur. I follow her everywhere, in this place she calls home.

My dreams take me far away, to a cat who wants to play, and another who longs for comfort. Mama tells me that dreams are real, and so are goodbyes. She meows that I'm her little ball of light, the goodness in her heart. Strong hands lift me away, as I take one last look at her sweet amber eyes, tears dripping from my own.

This place is new, and doesn’t smell like home. But a kind lady lifts me up, and places me in her lap. I search her face, and mama is staring back at me. She gently places me down, and waits as I go to a meeting that’s already happened in my dreams.

A first sniff, a simple nose nudge, a comforting meow. New brothers greet me, tell me their stories. I will be here a long time, always ready to listen.

New mama says I’m adopted, that a year has passed. Anniversary tuna sits on my plate, surrounded by a circle of treats, and a circle of friends.

Hello. Here's a random list of good stuff. Life right now is incredibly stressful on a bunch of different axes so good to remember the good stuff.

- I'm fifth on the leaderboard out of 1,130 for the mindfulness challenge. I appear to be 58 minutes behind the leader if I'm reading it right. Probably can't catch him but I'm chasing his tail lol.
- Going to the beach next weekend, just for two nights but I need to get away. Fingers crossed a friend can join me but I'll go either way.
- Project Runway tonight!
- [personal profile] hanarobi sent me a wee cloisonne elephant and I clipped it to my work lanyard, which now has a number of things clipped to it in addition to my badge: elephant, steampunky magnifying glass, Star of David pendant, a wee ornamental flower.
- It's sausage and potato soup today for lunch! Yum!

Happy Tag
