Thursday This n That

I wonder who at the paper company thought it would be a good idea to make a pack of sticky notes where the sticky alternates from one end to the other.  It's a pain in my ass.  I keep having to move the damn thing around so the sticky part is at the top of what I'm writing.  And I threw out the wrapper ages ago, so I can't even see which company it was so I never buy them again.  Derp.

We saw the first fawns of 2021 this morning. Twins!  Yay!  Sadly, none of my pics turned out and now they're gone.  

I got a wild hair after dinner yesterday and decided to start mowing the lawn.  It was 90 degrees F outside.  Umm... yah.  It's supposed to get to 97 today, so I better get my butt in gear this morning.  There's mowin' needs doing and I'm the gal to do it this time.  (It's usually Hubs' job, but I wanted to this time.  I need the exercise.)

We got a gadget from Hubs' brothers for copying slides onto your computer.  (They already did theirs and mailed us a thingie with the pics on it.)  We've had it for a couple weeks now and haven't done anything with it.  I think I know where the slides are.  It's just a matter of digging that box out from under all the other boxes.  Maybe this weekend.  The gadget is sitting on the dining room table, mocking me.

SCIU is on sale this week.  I can't muster the gumption to do anything about it.  All that time I've spent the past few weeks on sales and things, with nothing to show for it, make doing more of it less than palatable.  

In happier news, I'm plugging right along on the re-read of the unfinished book.  It needs SO MUCH work, but that's okay.  It's good stuff and I need to finish it before I fix it.  (Or I'll spend too much time fixing and never finish.)  I did read what I think is a particularly brilliant piece of it yesterday, which made me feel good about myself.  So yay.

Okay, I really need to get moving this morning.  The grass ain't gonna mow itself.  And the sink is full of dishes.  Thank goodness this is my 'no call the office' day.  

What's on your radar today?


  1. Get that mowing done early! Yay for fawns! Yay for brilliant words! When I come across a passage like that, I get a happy. GHOST did that to me a couple of times.

    Not much going on this week. We had Stormy for a day and then things changed. He got into a baseball camp. He'll be here tomorrow.

    LG is dealing with VA. Frustrating and it doesn't help that he's in pain. (Kidney stones).

    It's hot. As you know.

    My Christmas present arrived yesterday. It was out of stock and as soon as LG got notice it was in, he ordered it. It's a large, SQUARE cast-iron skillet. Pre-seasoned. It's perfect! He also got me the silicone handle cover that doesn't get squirmy when I pick up the pan. Now we're waiting for the glass cover to restock. Doesn't take much to make me happy.

    Wallyworld today. Jake and I are headed out here in a short. Want to go before it gets too hot to walk across the parking lot for him.

    A dectective called this week to get more info on my stolen phone. I need to check OCPD's FB page because if he gets good footage, he'll post it there. I told him I'd definitel press charges if she gets arrested. Nice guy.

    That's pretty much my week. Little writing done but lots of staring out the window looking for plot ideas. I think I have a story line for the Christmas short. We'll see if I get words this afternoon.

    DON'T OVERHEAT! And keep reading. Whatever this book is, you know I'm interested. Time for me to get real clothes on and head out into the world. Later, tater! 🥰

  2. Woohoo for your WIP!

    Yay for fawns! Too bad about the photos, but just knowing that you saw them is fun.

    I think those annoying stickies are called fan-fold. A lot of people must have complained, since last I saw them there was a drawing on the package showing them all linked together.

    I saw the new kitten a couple of days ago. Little Mama is all black, but baby looks like a fluffy Siamese. Too cute. And Little Mama let me pet her yesterday. Yay!
