hi friends!

hi friends!

There’s nothing quite as exciting as the 10:30 at night “Oh Crap, the Blog!” moment. :-) It’s been an especially non-interesting non-eventful day, which doesn’t help with the remembering to write something down about it. So I’m not going to…the writing of it anyway. Short post!

almost snow

almost snow

I woke up this morning to see happy fluffy snow out on the ground and along fences and places and such. I was super excited and before heading out to work I stomped around the back yard trying to get a few nice shots of snowflakes. There weren’t really any good ones, but almost. :) […]

On Saturday I bought a puffy down coat. Sunday it was super sunny and 60 degrees out. I figured it’d be a while till I got to try it out. But alas, no! It was a bit snowy today! A successful trial run of the coat occurred. So far so good. So…minions! I may or […]

FYI, 38 days until the new Star Wars movie. This is the important type of information we like to keep on hand at the office. Spent today getting my new computer all set up. It’s oh so fancy. Well, really it’s just swapping one iMac for a different iMac. But this one is better, faster, […]

I didn’t have a plan when I headed out this morning. I just sort of started driving north. I ended up in north Orem, apparently where those not short on the money choose to live. Holy cow, there were some crazy big mansions. Turrets and everything. I eventually decided to try to get to a […]

Got myself a new coat today! Fancy fancy! I finally have a coat for going out in the cold and snow. I’ve got jackets. I’ve got some big ol’ crazy parka kind of coat that I don’t really like, so I’m happy to finally have an actual winter coat that will be warm that I […]

wake up!

wake up!

Last night my niece came over for dinner. It was a good motivator to get me to actually make some food! I made a big pot of chicken soup in the Instant Pot, transferred that to a big pot and then made a big batch of brown rice, again in the Instant Pot. It worked […]

Phone post today as I wait for IT. The power is out in my half of the office. The circuits are not liking my space heater. :( And space heater mention implies it is cold! Because it IS. And it is kinda sorta snowing out there! Very exciting. I’m kind of wishing I could go […]

another day another dollar

another day another dollar

Long day today…mostly my fault for oversleeping. That tends to make me feel back-footed all day. I got to work not-early, so no walk at lunch. Just ate what I brought at my desk. Then straight to class. And then talking for 2 1/2 hours and then home for dinner. Makes for a long day […]

big ol’ meanie

I’ve officially passed into the hallowed halls of teachers who made their students cry. Milestone achieved! haha! Okay, so not really, but kind of. And by kind of, totally did. We were going over her sketches for the new assignment, and I think she was already having a bit of low self-esteem happening. I was […]
