bundled up, walkabout, snow

Just doin my part to uphold the pink collar ghetto rep

Ooh, up too late on a Tuesday. AGAIN. Sigh.

Today in short hand: Bowled, napped, showered, chaperoned chess club, grocery shopped, my "make your own" dinner was cashew/chili [canned with beans] omelet, started a crockpot of chili ["real" with beans] for tomorrow's dinner, washed 60% of the dishes.

Highlights:

Hair [no pic]:
The temperature was up enough by the time I got home from bowling, that I turned off the shower. I napped long enough for the water heater to recover before I showered. I blew my hair dry since it's still damn cold out; Flar likes it. :)

Food:
I figured out four meals during chess club, inspired by the cold weather: Chili, Peanut Butter Stew, Orange Beef Stew with Barley, and Hamburger Stroganoff. All south beach friendly. Woot!

Pretties:
I bought distilled water with the groceries and have my fountain running in the kitchen. Tis pretty.

Bed now.

Caught up now

Heh.

The LJ outage meant slightly less to read when I caught up, and bonus, I got 14 free days extension out of it. Whee!

On the down side, I woke up in the middle of the night sick. Finally got to sleep in my recliner, then crawled back into bed with Flar at 6am. Struggled out of bed by 1:30pm. Sigh.

Mouse Hunt

The Great Mouse Hunt of 2005

The body count is up to 16.

Don't get me wrong. I like mice. Think they're cute as the dickens. Had gerbils cause my mom couldn't handle the scaly tails on mice.

But, uninvited, free-range mice have taken over. They are destructive, and messy, and they sound like actual children running around in the ceiling. They have got to go.

So I'm not going to complain about the campaign that Flar and the boys started while I was out of town.

Especially not when it gave me an excuse to create a new icon.

Twill update with the body count, occasionally.

Christmas Goodies

Tummy feels wrenched from last night; coddling it by eating very little. Reading appeals when I feel under the weather; I just finished my Christmas goodies from Cinder, so I thought I'd update my list for the year:

4 Dolly and the Starry Bird, by Dorothy Dunnett
3 Dolly and the Nanny Bird, by Dorothy Dunnett
2 The Eyre Affair: A Thursday Next Novel, by Jasper Fforde
1 Incubus Dreams: An Anita Blake Novel, by Laurel K. Hamilton

The chili is cooking down in the crockpot with the lid off. That's what I'm bringing to work for dinner; I think I'll bring my meds to work so that I've the drive home for digesting them before bed. I think that's all I had right before bed last night...

My tummy rarely ever tortures me this way, so I'm a panicky little wimp when it happens. Sigh.
