Ugh. Sick here--am thinking I got it from the guy in the cube next to me, seems like a cold though my throat is fine so far. Drove home with the window down, the cold fresh air helped a bit for preventing puking in the car lol. Ugh ugh ugh. Have been sleeping off and on all evening, with time out for chicken soup a couple times.

Ugh.

As [personal profile] mirabile always says, it is *always* correct to punch a Nazi.

Apparently this is how we roll in Seattle.

Uh oh, I discovered a big patch of poison ivy behind the front bushes. I hate to attack plants, but I bought a spray-bottle of weed killer and sprayed every leaf I could see. (Some of it is winding its way up the inside of a fat bush which may, sadly, become a casualty of the spraying.) Shiremom, Shiredad, and I are VERY allergic to poison ivy. We'll see how things look out there over the next week.

Shiremom and I both really enjoyed "August Rush". Thank you to everyone who recommended it!

In happy-happy news, I sat myself down yesterday, refused to be distracted, and wrote chapter 4 of my fluffy Cormallen story. Hooray! Now it just needs some polishing.

Pippin's been extra alert today, listening to the high winds whip the trees around, but it finally seems to be nap time. zzzzzzzzzzzz

It's a birthday!

Click on thumbnail to expand my mindfulness minutes chart.



Still in fifth position overall, 59 60 minutes out of first. Can I catch him up? Doubt it! Might try though that's probably not "skillful" behavior. Still human apparently lol.

Happy Friday. Man am I glad to get there. Going to make my reservations for the Sandpiper today. Sadly my friend can't join me but we'll try another time. So now I have to decide what room to get balanced with having to pay for the whole thing myself (translation -- probably won't put myself on the top floor like we usually do :-)

How can I tell autumn is arriving? Harry starts demanding lap time.

Happy birthday, [personal profile] lindahoyland! I hope your boys are treating you with the delicate care you so richly deserve. Or at least refraining from knocking over cups and bowls and glasses and anything else that catches their eye. Well, Reuben's eye :-)

It's a birthday!

Hello. Here's a random list of good stuff. Life right now is incredibly stressful on a bunch of different axes so good to remember the good stuff.

- I'm fifth on the leaderboard out of 1,130 for the mindfulness challenge. I appear to be 58 minutes behind the leader if I'm reading it right. Probably can't catch him but I'm chasing his tail lol.
- Going to the beach next weekend, just for two nights but I need to get away. Fingers crossed a friend can join me but I'll go either way.
- Project Runway tonight!
- [personal profile] hanarobi sent me a wee cloisonne elephant and I clipped it to my work lanyard, which now has a number of things clipped to it in addition to my badge: elephant, steampunky magnifying glass, Star of David pendant, a wee ornamental flower.
- It's sausage and potato soup today for lunch! Yum!

Good Kitty News!

This is a credible source I'm familiar with, but it misses what's important and talks all about Hemingway--blah, blah, blah. I don't know TMZ and how credible a source it is, but this article focuses on what's important: all 55 cats at the Hemingway House in Key West made it through Irma!!! Yay!!! OK, all other sources I've looked at say it's 54 cats, but I'm going to go with this one. Maybe a kitten was born during the storm, OK?

The parents took us to the Hemingway House when I was 6 or 7 and there were cats everywhere there and I was in heaven, so this was a special spot in my Irma concern. I know it doesn't help anyone from Barbuda, but I'm glad the cats and curators at HH made it through fine.

Here's another article on the 54 55 Hemingway cats with an explanatory vid showing some of them engaging in the very exciting sport of Multiple Cats sleeping on Beds--watch the gray one's expert utilization of the casual ear flick. Note the black and white cat named after the famous statesman I.M. Snowball. May they all sleep comfortably and soundly today.

I will get back to eclipse reporting--just had to pass on the happy news!

Saw this on lindahoyland's journal. Which Hogwarts house does your kitty get sorted into?
