Today was stock up on pet stuffs and run errands day. Its also pay a few bills day. Heh.
Only just stopped to eat something finally. No wonder I was running out of energy.
Ordered a book at Barnes and noble last week, "Shibori-Creating Color and Texture on Silk"
. Picked that up today. Gorgeous photos in this sucker. Can't wait to try some of the the techniques in it. Knew I was saving that 11+ yards of silk for a reason. No I still haven't even opened the wrapping on it. Heh.
Picked up a book on Eddie Guerrero for Mark. Eddie G was/is his favorite wrestler who died a few months back. The book is is autobiography. Mark's been asking me to get it for him when I could for awhile now. I finally remembered.
Stocked up on Dante's food, canned and dry, got more treats for her. She loves the sample sized Natural Balance food rolls. Wish I could afford to buy the 2lb size for her. They'd last a day at least as a treat.
Went by the vet's to get the Boys' canned food. They still have 2 Katrina cats left. They adopted out the two that had to go together. Tabitha and China are such sweethearts and so lovable, I doubt they'll be there much longer. Seems a news broadcast was done on them and the kids at Back Creek Elementary did something for them as well. Got the Boys more LeanTreats(Butler makes them). They love them. also got a 4 pack of 'crinkle balls' for Max. He'll have two of them shredded in a week. He absolutely loves anything that crinkles.
Got lots of Vitakraft treats for Rufus and Puck. Got Puck a new timothy hay 'Hide-a-way Hut'. He loves to chew them to pieces. Rufus still has his timothy hay ball, so he was fine in that department. Nyx is still mad at me for completely tearing apart his setup and washing it all down on him. You'd think he'd be happy with the wooden 'Fiddle-Sticks' thingy to chew on, hide in, climb over, but noo.... ah well, he'll get over it. Besides, he's getting fat, and needs more exercise, so having to run around and find new hiding places for his pumpkin seeds will be good for him.
Stopped by the gas station on the way home. Some things never change. Donna was there by herself. Seems the schedule had been screwed up and she had to work the entire shift herself. She was not happy about that. Saw a few of the regulars while I was there. They all say they miss seeing me, asked what I was up to. commented on the hair, etc.
*pauses to give Aries attention as he walks between me and the keyboard*
Its windy as all get out right now. But nice and warm. So I have the windows open at the back and front of the house to create a crossbreeze. My Earth windchime I hung up in here, it's catching gusts as they come through the window. Nice and soothing, a good counterpoint to the traffic noise and the noise of the other windchimes out front, as this one is a deeper tone than them. Really need to restring Cathedral Bells this spring, so it'll sound better.
My neighbor is funny. When the Saturn was in the shop, he thought Mark had left. He never came over to knock on the door cause he was afraid to. So when Mark asked him why he never looked in the window to see if the PS2 was on, he said he did, but the TV was always on, and "You don't watch TV, man!" Poor Chris. He never said anything to me, and he'd seen me a few times while the Saturn was gone. Sheesh.
Speaking of the Saturn. Mark had to drop it off at the dealership again. He had no parking lights and just figured that out. Seems they blew a fuse and didn't know it. So they fixed the fuse for free. Changed out the bulb on the left front turn signal of the Demon Truck. And it still doesn't work. *headdesk* Still have to change out the burned out bulb on the plate light. Amazing hyow much better it runs when it's not a quart low on oil as well. Added water to the radiator too. Runs smoother and with less heat now. Hopefully we'll be getting the driver's side door fixed sunday. Gotta figure out what's up with the damn turn signal though.
Did some dishes earlier. Mark and I came up with a deal, I'll wash, he puts away.}:) Works so far. Now if I can get him to pick up after himself in the living roomn, we'll be set.
Was supposed to go to Danville this sat for a birth day party for Mikayla and Dale. She'll be 5 on Sat. He'll be, who knows how old. 34 I think. His sister is coming up with her daughter and several of her daughter's friends, from North Carolina. So there'll be a good 5-6 5year olds running around. Never been happier to hear that Mark has to work on Sat. We can deal with Azrael and Mikayla, but not 3-4 other kids as well as them. Mark's parents aren't even coming from Jersey because that's too many kids for his dad to deal with either. Heh.
The wind through the Oaks out back sounds like a dull roar, building to a crescendo as it bursts through the windows, stirs the Chimes and rushes out the other window again, on its way past the side of the house, tickling the Chimes there next.
There was pollen on my windshield this morning. Spring is definately on its way.
Have 2-3 yards of fabric currently in a dye bath. I didn't have the color I wanted, so I mixed 2 colors together to get what I wanted. Hopefully the fabric will look as nice as the dye bath does. this is the last of the fabric I needed to have everything for Dante's Quilt. After I rinse it and it dries, I can frinally start cutting and laying out the design. This will be my first full sized quilt, approximately Queen-sized. Will be interesting to see how long it takes.
*picks up papers and cd cases from floor* That was a impish gust of wind that time. No wonder the fire danger is high today.
