I came home to my BabyGirlKid after a wonderfully comfortable 3-day weekend.
I received this little doorknocker in the mail today. I’ll hang it indoors tho…
Also, when I went to Raley’s to pick up some coffee, I happened upon this, and I HAD to have her:
She’s a cat! With a book AND a cup of coffee!
She, and my new, tiny succulent (doesn’t it look like green kitty toe-beans!?!) will move out to the back patio with the other plants I’ve kept alive.
I drove home tonight to spend the week with Emily (and to work my weekly 40hrs) and when I arrived at my apartment, I saw the full moon watching over me…
Super Pink Full Moon
Which is weird, cuz I think THIS is a Super Pinky:
Hmm…I think I have one somewhere…
Woke after a great night’s sleep, to fresh coffee and a turkey, fried egg, and cheese sammich, made by my love.
He is an excellent cook. I think it’s genetic, both of Matt’s daughters (Kelly & Megan) are incredible cooks as well.
The blossom on one of my succulents
Freshly washed hair – I’m seriously considering a haircut.
Watched the Oscar’s and I’m glad that John Baptiste and H.E.R. won.
Received my 2nd Covid-19 vaccination yesterday, and took today off work to recuperate.
I slept for more than 10 hours last night, but that’s not unusual for me, as I always sleep better/longer at Matt’s place.
Despite sleeping that long, I’ve felt tired and muscle achy today. I think some of that is from shifting the entire Mystery section, then starting on Adult Fiction, over the past 2 days.
Last night we got tacos at LA Picosita and this is what the moon looked like:
New camera phone goodness.
I think I took this one while Matt took a flash photo with his iPhone.
I’m full as a tick right now. We picked up Asian food at a local place in Lodi, Shangri La. Shared pan fried noodles, crab rangoon, and an unagi caterpillar roll. YUM! 😋
There are new neighbors moving in across the street. They haven’t unpacked yet but they hung this flag at the peak of their garage roof:
Originally a George Washington era battle flag, now represents xtian nationalism/xtian dominionism.
I also got my 2nd Moderna vaccine today and I am EXTATIC about it. In 2 weeks, I’ll feel so much safer than I have in over a year.
I have the next 3 days off. I took tomorrow off because many folks I know have felt puny the day after their 2nd jab. Sunday and Monday are my regular days off.
I plan to rest tomorrow, and probably putter on Sunday, as the forecast is for big rain.
I’m happy and tired. 😌
It’s breezy and sunny here in Vallejo!
I have therapy tonight, and I get to pick my new glasses up tomorrow after work.
Library Outreach circa 2016 (?)
I HAVE to go to sleep early tonight. Tomorrow is my earlier morning than the rest of the week…
Tomorrow is Friday!
Some days, yanno?
Today was a good day at work. I call it a good day when there are no incident reports. I did have to ask a guy to leave (watching videos on his phone even after I informed him that he needed to use earbuds/headphones), but he left without a problem.
I was checking out Google earth on the new phone, and peeped on my own place. This is my front door. I live upstairs.
That’s my Merry up in the top, left window. And I put that sign up.
It’s been super breezy all day, and now it’s cold & windy enough to keep knocking out my wifi. It comes back on, but the interruptions are annoying.
Was clearing out old files (new phone, ya) and found this video, looking out my kitchen window while it rained, in March 2020…before CA shut down.
Rain through a dirty window…
April 20, 2021.
Today, Derek Chauvin was found GUILTY of the murder of George Floyd.
Honestly, after every other LEO, accused of (less often, charged with) killing a black person, has gotten away with it, I was genuinely, truly surprised at the verdict.
I hope for more things to surprise me like that.
I was gifted this sweet beanie for the holiday today:
Tomorrow is another day…
After a trip to the AT&T store, and a new sim card, my new hotness is working beautifully.
The next time I get a new phone, I will go directly to a store and have them set it all up. I did that at Best Buy when I bought my last 2 phones, and they just switched everything for me.
I can do/learn to do most anything. I also know when I need to ask for assistance.
La Picosita. Best Taco Truck in Lodi
We went for tacos last night. Tacos Supreme Al Pastor. 🌮
Today, after we watched the closing arguments of the Derek Chauvin trial, we went to visit Matt’s friend, Robert’s place.
Robert has an unnamed little kitty who has been the “truck tire” cat, as she sits on the truck tire of the truck that is usually parked in the garage.
She needs a name.
She truly is sweet…
She’s waiting for her truck to come back.
Facebook memories reminded me that 2 years ago today, I said goodbye to my Hobbitses: Merry & Pippin.
I find that I don’t feel sad, thinking about my babies, because we spent 12 stellar years together.
I loved them and they loved me and we had a dozen years of love.
They were my beautiful boys.
Peregrin Took, aka: Pippin

Have a great night…
I’ve spent the majority of today trying to get my new phone set up.
Currently, my old phone cannot be used for phone calls, unless it’s an emergency.
Contrarywise, my new phone cannot be accessed at all until I get the SIM card unlocked.
I’ll take everything (including a new screen protector they can apply for me) to the AT&T store tomorrow to have them straighten it all out.
Have a good night!
