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.

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.

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!
Received my new phone yesterday, and have been transferring my information from my old S8 to my new S21.
Since I use my phone so much, there are a huge number of things to be transferred. It’s mostly a case of having to remember way too many passwords.
The new cameras are pretty impressive on the new hottness.
This succulent was purchased from Costco about 3 years ago. It’s blooming!
It’s so nice outside, We’re gonna either go for a bike ride or wash our cars…Shelley sure needs it!
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.
Worked 8 hours.
Took a lovely HOT shower.
Tomorrow morning is my stellar coworker’s goodbye party before he transfers to a library branch across the county.
It’s also when I have to go to work an hour earlier…
Found an old, previously unknown photo of my Grandma, Dannie Mae Rader:
I was Grandma’s Baby long after this photo was taken.
Going to sleep now.
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.

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.
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:
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.
