So anyway

I was late yesterday & the day before. Not late to work, late to the train station & missed the early train. So I decided that this morning I was going to get up when I first woke up. There were so many things I could do first thing in the morning. Check my bank balance, see how much my paycheck was, go on WW and start a message thread. I woke up at 4 something, decided I could wait until my alarm went off. Well, I finally got out of bed at 5:45. Made my train, but didn’t get to go online or even do anything but get dressed.

On another subject, I started another Peter Robinson book this one deals with the issue of Neo-Nazism in Britain. I find it mildly ironic that I started this book the same week as the 3 detectives that shot S. Bell were found not-guilty.

Tonight I am going to bed earlier than usual. I am not staying up to watch Murder One on even though I am now addicted. Keep telling myself, I can watch it anytime, it is online!


Updating & checking

So I hope this goes through. I am using my phone to access Hotmail. I hope v-cast is right so I don’t get charged for this.

Saturday was the SPCA dog parade. The middle school marching band was there so we were there.

Sunday was sad. In January no more separate bookstudy, it is going to be before the ministry school. M said they had to decide if they should raise Bethelites allowances or reduce their expenses. They decided to reduce expenses!

It is raining today and l missed the early train. Tigger has already sent me a text asking for cinnamon. I bought him some at the deli. I sent him a text message saying I bought some cinnamon for you. I got the regular kind for you at the store with the dusty tins.

I was down this morning, don’t know how much I haven’t tracked it yet. I am getting back into my weight training, that is what really makes the difference for me.


I went to Allsport this evening. D and the boys (the two youngest) went to play racquetball. The texts Tigger sent me seem to indicate they had a good time. He said D was going to get a membership so they would be there more often.

I did some more typing on my other blog. I am describing the craft items and how I made them, where I got the ideas etc.

I am getting ready for bed and am starting to get stomach ache. Probably from what I am eating. I am going to drink a big glass of water and then go to bed. It will be a good thing to go to sleep before midnight.

Book Review

I finished Innocent Graves, and now I am going to try to write a review. I am not posting anything more on yesterdays post, I can’t remember what I was going to say.

In this installment in the series, we meet Jeremiah (Jimmy) Riddle, a pain in Bank’s neck. This novel is different from the other books in that we go through the court process, and the suspect is found not guilty. As it turns out, he didn’t do it, but his life is ruined (because people think he did it and just got off) and he tries to kill the person he feels is responsible for it. It is sort of like an episode of CSI that just aired. The characters are carefully written is the phrase I have read in other reviews, and they seem to grow as the series progresses. I am trying not to include any facts that I learned because I read 3 books out of order. But in the next book, I think is Susan Gay’s last because I read the one after that and she is spoken of in past tense, like she has moved on.

Now I am done with the review, and I was going to write about my very bad, horrible day, but I don’t feel like it now. I lost my hat, I spilled tea on me, there was a 6.57 mg raw sewage spill into Paerdaget Basin. Sorry, no film at eleven.

For Some Strange Reason

For some strange reason my posts wouldn’t show up on my work computer. I sent 3 e-mails and didn’t see a thing. Now when I got home and looked they are there. So I had to delete them. I will come back tomorrow for more of this post, cause I hate short posts, but I need to go to bed right now.

I sometimes send e-mails to my blog from this account because of the kitty cat, heart and musical note.

We have an ant infestation. They are after the cat’s food. I told him to eat all his food, or get rid of the ants. He hasn’t done either. So, I threw all his food (in his bowl, not in the plastic container which so far, is ant free) in the toilet and flushed. Then I put the bowl, which had cat food ‘dust’ and ants back on the floor, thinking I would take care of it in the morning. In the morning, the bowl was clean and the ants were gone. I could not imagine what had happened, had the ants eaten all the crumbs, or did the cat? Did the cat eat the food and the ants? Well, I put food in his bowl, and this afternoon when I got home the ants were back.

So I took a nap. Not a long one, just about 45 minutes. Then I went upstairs and ate, then went to Allsport, then went to Target and got ant traps! I also got some WD-40 because the door knob is sticking and the lock won’t lock all the way. I got another skort because they have finally made it to the clearance rack. And when those really nice tank tops make it to the 50% off rack, I will get one of them.

So the bowl is washed out, the floor is clean and the ant traps are in the wall. Hopefully no more ants.

One last comment, I have exercised 4 days in a row.

Thought for the day


As long as my boss pretends I’m on a good salary,
I’ll pretend that I’m busy…

Described as a feel good word, I kind of like saying it, Nonny Nonny. It’s from As You Like It. I keep saying I am going to read it but so far . . .

Today has not been the greatest of days. I stayed up late to finish Final Account. Another good book in the Alan Banks series. Then I got woken up early by my phone letting me know I got an e-mail from M.L. So I had to get up to check my e-mail to see what she said. Silly woman, spending time in the early a.m. to send me an e-card. Very sweet though.

Fell asleep on the train. Still having tummy problems that lead to a sore bottom. Have to take the Vaseline with me to the bathroom. Not bad though, nothing is bleeding right now.

This morning I had to throw out Butterscotch’s food again, covered in ants. I forgot to get ant traps at Target. I will have to remember to go tonight. I wrote a list in my phone, I need to transfer it to paper.


Yesterday, Saturday, M., Gwen and I went to Woodbury Commons. We got there a little before 10 and got a good parking space. When we left, there was not a space to be found, getting in the car I felt like a prospector in the desert with the buzzards circling. I got a watch, a nightgown, two sports bras, a small white pocketbook and a purple dress. I had to get the dress in an 8. Designer clothes are usually cut small though and this one is extremely fitted through the waist. It is very bright purple. I can’t wait to wear it, but I might need to get a new bra.

Today Gwen needed more pictures for her photography class, she wanted to walk and get them though, so we walked to Asian Ginger so I could eat, then to Memorial Park, then to Ron’s for ice cream, then home.

Then I went to the gym, I really didn’t want to, so I had to force myself. I don’t feel any different now. I went to Target after to get hand soap, a new case for my contacts and chocolate. I forgot I also wanted to get ant traps. The ants are getting into Butterscotches food. I had to throw out the food in his bowl and clean the area with Lysol with bleach and now my hands smell even though I was wearing Nitrile gloves. I think that is how it is spelled. I think I better check. Well I didn’t check I switched loads and fed Butterscotch. I am not checking now, I am going to bed. I checked and corrected it.

Hi there

I haven’t read the thread so I don’t know if any BTers have gone to my new “crafting” blog. I will have to redo it with comments and descriptions about the different things on it. I thought I had more pictures than that. I think I do, they are just not digital, so I would have to scan them to put them in. I don’t feel like doing that. I could take pictures of some of the necklaces and things that I kept and didn’t take pictures of, maybe tonight. I should have taken pictures of more things.

Tomorrow M has planned to go to Woodbury Commons. I was thinking I could get some Crocs, but they don’t have a store there. I want some for my trip. I don’t want to get too many things before I go, I want my Mom to have the pleasure of buying me some things. 😉

Gwen’s phone came today. She has already sent some text messages. When I activated in the basement with my computer, I sent a text to Tigger from the phone, 1 minute later she was knocking on my door, “I want my phone!” She is very happy with it. She set up her signature, Princess { :), a tiara on top of her smiley face.

Chatter Chatter

So, I just got hit with a headache. OW! I gave the blanket to the new mommie to be, well, she is not actually a NEW mommie, this is her third, but it is her first GIRL! She said she loved it, likes how soft it is, had to give me a hug. She also liked the baby feet on the bag and the card.

I took a few minutes to pop over to WW to check my threads. I just pasted ♪♥♫♥ >^..^< on them so tonight I can find them and type something. Laurie Lee sent an e-mail to Pam saying she has to leave the thread. I remember when I did that, then I came back, now the thread is no longer there. I am sure that will not happen to BT and BTF. There are too many people that post to it for it to just fade to black.

There was another thread that I used to post to that is no longer there. I can't believe that at one time I posted to 7-10 threads. One thread now only has like 3 regular posters. Every once in a while someone new posts there, but they don't come back.

My weight was up this morning, but my pants seem to be fitting better. So that is an NSV.
