November 28, 2010

Still sick today. But, not as bad as yesterday. Went to bed very early the past 2 nights. Missed Supernatural Friday, so have to find a copy online to catch up.
~~~~~~~~~~
Yay. I won more buttons on Listia for my craft projects I am going to do soon.
~~~~~~~~~~
5pm
Watched 4 eps of Magnificent 7 series on dvd today. Love that show ... still feel like crap. But, I have to work tomorrow. Sucks. I need to go to Fry's and get more printer ink, too. Have to get my Christmas cards made. Maybe I'll just buy some brown felt instead ... nah, still need ink for labels ...
~~~~~~~~~~
Looks like my bank is really starting to screw me over with all the new hidden fees. Been with them 8 years and never any problems. This past week, I've had about $35 taken out for no damn reason. Going to look into other banks as soon as I can. I hate to because my mom's SS and my paycheck goes in there direct deposit. Maybe I'll just start pulling the money as soon as it's deposited ... not sure what else to do to keep their grubby hands off of it ...
~~~~~~~~~~
Damn. Leslie Nielsen died tonight. Good actor; good comic. I liked watching nearly everything he was in.

November 26, 2010

Well, I'm sick. My normal November nearly every year. Last year I didn't get too sick, but was dealing with the nearly broken ankle. Hopefully, this won't move to pneumonia this year as it has in the past ... damn weather changes ... my head wants to explode and my throat is sore and breathing is bad.
~~~~~~~~~~
It's almost 2pm and I still feel like crap. But, I did get more stuff up on Listia! Still have so much more I want to list there and on Etsy. Just no energy. I need to get my Christmas cards made this weekend and cookies made. But, I have to make sure I am well enough to work next week! I only have about 5 stores to do, but one of them has about 6 hours worth of projects to get done Monday ...
~~~~~~~~~~
Now, I feel like I have a fever ... great ...
Trying to win another dream catcher and a bow & arrow. Hope the bids don't go too high.
~~~~~~~~~~
3pm
WooHoo! I won the bow & arrow!!

November 25, 2010

Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you all didn't eat too much!
~~~~~~~~~~
I added more auctions at Listia!
http://www.listia.com/profile/auctions/174106
~~~~~~~~~~
I received the quartz crystal I won on Listia. I was a little disappointed as it was much smaller than I expected. I should have asked the dimensions. But, it's pretty.
I just won some buttons to use in some crafts I want to do.
~~~~~~~~~~
I need to do some baking tomorrow. I owe for a cookie swap. Will be making oatmeal raisin cookies.
~~~~~~~~~~
I am stuffed! Had a good dinner. Roasted turkey. Cranberry Apple dressing. Baked butternut squash. Whole cranberries with nuts - baked. Bit of turkey gravy. Biscuits made from crescent rolls (they tore when my mom popped the package open, so she rolled them out and cut them like biscuits.) All was very good. Jorgy had part of the neck, boiled. And Candace ate part of the tail. The doves and fish didn't get anything!

November 24, 2010

I'm pissed. The damn bank charged an overdraft fee of $10 and transferred $50 from my savings to my checking. And, I was NOT overdrawn! Not happy ...
~~~~~~~~~~
Went to the post office and store this morning. Bought another half-price turkey for the freezer. Bigger one than the other day. Probably should have gotten more! Good price.
~~~~~~~~~~
Just made this nut mix. So good. Very spicy!!!
~~~~~~~~~~
I love Cashew Cookie Larabars! They have only 2 ingredients. Cashews & dates. That's it! Sooo Gooood!! Need to figure out how they make them.
~~~~~~~~~~
I can't believe I won a Cherokee peace pipe on Listia today!! Can't wait to get it and hang it in my office!
~~~~~~~~~~

November 23, 2010

Well, the rain didn't last the way they predicted. Sunny, but cool today.
Putting up more auctions on Listia today!
http://www.listia.com/profile/auctions/174106
Received the cute foil dog print that I won. Now, I need to go through my frames and get it hung up somewhere!
~~~~~~~~~~
Martin and his friend are trying to get the truck started. Not being too successful. It doesn't seem to be getting enough gas to turn over ...
~~~~~~~~~~
It seems I have locked the keys to the shed IN the shed ... great ...
~~~~~~~~~~
There was a small tornado in El Dorado County this afternoon. Not too common in the area, especially the Foothills.
~~~~~~~~~~
I got outbid on 3 different dreamcatcher's on Listia today ... :(
~~~~~~~~~~

November 22, 2010

I got up too early ... I'm still tired! Took my mom to the dentist this morning. And, she got her final 2 fillings. I really need to find a dentist ... I need 5 teeth replaced ...
~~~~~~~~~~
9pm
I. Am. Free. Zing!
I decided to take the whole week off.
~~~~~~~~~~

November 21, 2010

I have more things to list on Listia today, but can't seem to get in gear this morning. I just want to read fanfic.
Where is the rain we were supposed to still have today! The sun is out and no clouds.
I just won 2 cross-stitch kits with old train designs!!
~~~~~~~~~~
Missed out on several auctions this evening. Had a visit from Betty with sad news that late cousin Benny's wife killed herself a couple of weeks ago.
~~~~~~~~~~
Going to bed very early as I have to get up very early to take my mom to the dentist.

November 20, 2010

I'm putting up lots of new auctions on Listia today!
http://www.listia.com/profile/auctions/174106
~~~~~~~~~~
Lovely, overcast day today. Cool with a wind picking up. Need more rain.
~~~~~~~~~~
5pm
Spent most of the day listing auctions and reading fanfic. Nice. It's storming out now and the temp has gone down to 50F.
~~~~~~~~~~
Wow. A gully washer thunderstorm going on right now. Lightning!
~~~~~~~~~~
7pm
This is a cold storm. It is down to 44F now.
I won a cute cross-stitch kit of two dogs in a basket. I'm waiting to see if I win a big quartz crystal now ... Yay! I won it!
~~~~~~~~~~

November 19, 2010

I won a cute foil print of an English Cocker puppy overnight! Wish it was black, but it's red. Still cute.
Have more stuff I'm watching, but probably won't get because they end while I'll be at work today.
~~~~~~~~~~
It's been overcast and cool all day, but no rain yet. Hope it comes soon, but not before I take Jorgy out again!
Got all my stores done for the week and also got a half-price turkey on sale! They didn't have fresh cranberries, though! Will have to search on Tues. at another store for some.
~~~~~~~~~~
It's finally raining at just before 5. I took Jorgy out and she was fast, but I got soaked watching Mrs. Hummer drinking from the feeder!

November 18, 2010

It's been a nice day. Didn't work. Had to get something straightened out with my house insurance and then pay that bill. Got lots of fun stuff in the mail from my swap groups and another Dresden Files book and a cool craft book. I'm going to be making quite a few of the crafts in the book to sell on Etsy. Hope they go over well. I need to go through my fabrics, etc. to see what else I need to get started.
~~~~~~~~~~
I have to make sure I work tomorrow. I need to get 3 stores done. I only have 2 days I can work next week as my mom has a dentist appt. Monday and of course there's Thanksgiving.
~~~~~~~~~~
I found a slipcover for the old recliner this morning at Walmart. Not happy with the price. They had 2 identical slipcovers. One tan, one dark brown. The tan one was over $5 more! Why! It's the same slipcover, just a different color! I wanted the tan one. I bought the dark brown one. I'm not paying extra just for a different color. Stupid.
~~~~~~~~~~
I need to go through all my old crafts. I want to start making the ribbon barrettes I used to make. They were cool and might go over well on Listia and Etsy. Need to find the instructions. And, my bow-making instructions ...
~~~~~~~~~~

November 17, 2010

Didn't work today. Went to DMV and stood in line for an hour to get the transfer form I need for the neighbor that's buying the truck. But, at least that is done. I also went to the mall as my mom wants a cover for the old recliner. No one had one! I will have to look online, I guess.
~~~~~~~~~~
I spent a few minutes starting to cut an old pipe sticking out of the ground in the square garden. I bought a hacksaw to do it the other day. It's gonna take me some time. I'm so out of shape for that sort of thing. But, at least the cut is started!
~~~~~~~~~~
I'm going to get all the address labels that folks won from me on Listia printed after lunch so I can get them mailed out tomorrow.
~~~~~~~~~~
Wow. I'm going to go broke on postage and ink doing these labels on Listia so often. I made over 2000 credits today, though ...
~~~~~~~~~~
My mom came up with a good idea ... we're going to give out Clementines and Mandarin oranges for Hallowe'en treats next year.
~~~~~~~~~~

November 16, 2010

Well, I got busy last night reading fanfic and then watching 3 eps of Magnificent Seven on my dvds, so didn't blog. I love that show. It wasn't on long enough ... May watch more tonight after Glee.
~~~~~~~~~~~

Received the dreamcatchers I won on Listia. And, a Donald Strachey novel from Paperback Swap. And, another towel from one of my swap groups. Good mail day.
~~~~~~~~~~
I really hate when people dictate how I run my auctions. Don't like it, don't bid on my stuff.

November 14, 2010

I can't believe I haven't made a blog for almost 2 weeks! Well, I'm back to it. The first week of the month I was sick and last week I was catching up on my stores that I didn't get done when I was sick.
I've made a bunch of address label auctions on Listia:
http://www.listia.com/profile/auctions/174106
I hope to get some more things listed after lunch.
~~~~~~~~~~
Added a rosary, some flag pendants and a zebra pin to Listia. On the same link as above.
~~~~~~~~~~
We're definitely in an Indian Summer. It got to 79F today! If it hadn't been so windy today, I would have worked in the yard!
~~~~~~~~~~
Finally got my first payment from the neighbor for my truck. 6 more to go!
~~~~~~~~~~
I left a few of my YahooGroups today. Just no action in them or not what would keep me interested. There are a few more I might leave in the next couple of weeks.
~~~~~~~~~~
My bad shoulder is killing me tonight. Need to take some willow bark. This weird fluctuating weather is not nice to me.

8am
Forgot to send yesterday's post last night! So, did it this morning ...
~~~~~~~~~~
noon
I'm getting a damn migraine. Took some willow bark when I got home, but need to make some feverfew tea for lunch. I got 2 stores done this morning. Very quick and easy. I like them that way! Don't know what I want for lunch ... I was very surprised when I went through my mail when I got home. I got my oil check early! And, it is one of the highest I've gotten. Will get the house insurance paid off a month early!

8am
Last night I finished reading one of my favorite Magnificent 7 AU fanfics. It's modern and based on a Stephen King story. It's called Petrie's Folly by retirw. It's gen and 24 parts. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3462553/1/Petries_Folly I rec all of her stories.
~~~~~~~~~~
1pm
Got 1 store serviced. Came home and had pecan butter and jelly sandwich and then went out and cleaned out the weeds and dead plants from the front planter boxes. Looks much better. Harvested my 2 black sunflower heads and rubbed the dried petals off. I set them down in Jorgy's yard on the feeder there.
Did 10 jumps on the trampoline and my resitance rings and 10 counter push-ups.
