Mid-weakly

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…
My dinner…

Goodnight, y’all!

On the NEW phone…

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.

My Bois

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.

Have a great night…

Fridays are my Thursdays when I work Saturdays.

Woke up a bit late this morning but still had time for that 1st cup of coffee with my girl. You all know Emily.

My sleepy head.

Work was good. Stayed busy and generally cheerful the whole day, so yay!

Found out that my pedi spot (Signature Nails in Vallejo) is open with limited folks inside. Couldn’t wait any longer, so I made an appointment, picked up a small frappuccino (because pedi + coffee = happiness), and now I am comfortably ensconced on a massage-y chair, while my feet are pampered. 👑

Looks messy, but feels SO GOOD!

I spring for the #3 pedi, which includes: scrub, mask, hot stone massage, paraffin foot soak, hot towel wrap, and RAPTURE!

I came home to my sweet girl, and I am now relaxing…admiring my pretty toes:

They feel like buttah…

I’m going to sleep early tonight, as I need to be at work by 8am.

After work tomorrow, I’ll head east toward my heart:

Back before we let our pandemic hair grow…

Goodnight lovely humans.

And today…

Is turning into another good day…

Woke up to this GLORIOUS poppet…

Work was busy and I love that because not only does that mean that many folks are using the Library, but staying occupied makes the time fly by.

Samsung S21 5G

Today I ordered this fancy, new phone…it should arrive by the weekend, so I’ll get to try the new camera hotness in Woodbridge.

(Of course I ordered a couple new cases for it online, too).😉🤪🤩🤓

Lucky me…I get to end the day in much the same way I started it…with THIS fluffy lover:

My Best Friend.

Goodnight, ya’ll!

Back to work…

I woke up early enough to have a 2nd cup of coffee and extra snuggles with My Emily.

She’s SO FLUFFY!!!

A retired former coworker brought these in to us from her garden:

GLORY!
The COLORS, tho!

Today is looking like a pretty good day here at JFK, even though one of my favorite coworkers is leaving us after Saturday and it’s rather jarring to watch him pack up/clean his desk. 😥

He is promoting to full time at another location, so I can’t harsh his gig, but I hope he can come back to JFK when a full time spot opens up. 🤓🥳

Tonight I’m going to collect up a few items and supplies to take back to my new Art Space at Matt’s…

I mean, you KNOW there will be beautiful tapestries and twinkly lights in there! 🤩🤪

I purchased a string of lights much like this, and three (3) were delivered. MWAH-HAH-HAH!
My forest tapestry is quite like this…

I do believe I’ve got some Aries moon energy going on.

Happy Tuesday!

Day 12 blog along. Day 1 Aries Moon Vow.

That’s right…I have been keeping up with Effy’s blog along so far, and I love this shit.

In addition, in my Art Class on Saturday, I vowed on the dark of the Aries Moon that I will get paint on my fingertips.

I did this with my fingers.

I was testing out my new paint from yesterday in one of my art journals.

I anticipate that these iridescent colors will REALLY pop on black paper.

Also, I ❤ Iris Apfel.

It’s Me! In the Thing!

I’m so happy to be making something Arty!

Tonight was my journey back to my place, to prepare for my work week.

She’s licking my fingers cuz I had salmon for dinner.

I came home to her, so all is well…

A day to rest…tonight, I mean…

I have a full, regular day of work happening here, but I am sleepy. I couldn’t fall asleep last night until nearly midnight, then woke up at 730.

See…I’m not a morning person…never have been.

Before I went back to school to become a librarian, I was a Bartender for a decade.

Now THAT was a great schedule for me!

The only thing that keeps me trying this morning shit is the fact that I LOVE my job.

One of the main things I get to do is Help People find the information they need right now.

Sometimes that’s the location of the latest Mystery, or help with research for a school assignment, often it’s assistance with printing or scanning, and most importantly, it can be directions to the restrooms.

I get to assist with these and SO MANY other informational needs every day and I LIVE for this shit!

My roomate, Angelina (age 10) created this.

So…here I am…ready for bed. Time to curl up with this lovely furbaby:

Goodnight!

Back from Monterey

We got up early and headed south, then west…Had some WEAK SAUCE McDonald’s coffee on the way, but made up for it at Tidal coffee at the east end of Cannery Row.

Nearly everyone was wearing a mask…

…even Steinbeck.

This is very different than what we generally encounter at Lodi Lake Park.

Then we found out why:

THIS is how you do it.

There are gorgeous views of the water, and many sights to see…

I pass the JB factory on hwy 12 twice a week…my favorite flavor is pear.

We visited Kelly and Megan at Megan’s ADORABLE little place in Pacific Grove, where they fed us amazing food, and I got to meet the 4 cats:

The Count.
Pickle
Olive

I didn’t catch a photo of Queso, unfortunately.

It has been a very nice Easter Sunday for us, but imma go to sleep now…

G’night
