And what a Friday it looks to be…

2 Comments

The dark clouds are moving in slowly, there’s a line of them outside of my office window. I think it’s beautiful in a way. A little unknown fact about me, I Love Storms!! I do. And I can feel the energy building up inside of me. The migraine is slowly receding. So it’s looking to be a beautiful day for me.

and one small lil teeny rant; If you have ‘unlimited’ data, how can you reach a limit?? I’m not able to post on twitter, facebook or even here from my phone. waaah ๐Ÿ˜ฆ the wifi in the building is centralized to one location and it blocks the fun stuff, i.e. facebook and twitter. ๐Ÿ˜›

And I’m looking at my gravatar, think I need to change it… oops random thought there. lol

the calendars have all been posted, and I’m not going to password protect them. I believe we’re all adults here. If something offends you, then don’t look. Otherwise, enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

till later, Have an Awesome Friday!!
~Peace~

Short week

And woohoo I accomplished my goal for the holiday weekend. I did nothing! Well you know, nothing majorly important. Still did the Domestic Goddess Gig, and I tried to lay out and get sun burnt. Okay, yes, no tanning is bad for you. And getting sun burnt is very bad for you. But honestly, I just wanted to sit outside, soak up some of the heat and read peacefully.

Saturday was the day, I slathered on some sunblock, yes it was cloudly overhead, but you can actually get burnt on cloudy days. The UV A/B rays still come through the clouds. Owies!! So wear your sunscreen on cloudy days. But it was nice and warm out, grabbed a book, my ipod and headphones and some water. Had the ipod set to classical, the book was the newest by Yasmine Galenorn of the Otherworld series. And ahhhhh! It was peaceful! And I didn’t fall asleep and get burnt.

After that nice break, I went inside, and we had a mini movie marathon, Adam Sandler was the actor and we watched Grownups, Hotel Transylvania, and Little Nicky.

I think I went to bed around 1 am. And then on Sunday, it was pretty much a repeat of Saturday. Except I stayed inside as it was a little rainy, so I finished my book on the couch. And then being someone that doesn’t really do the whole relaxation thing well. I grabbed my iPad and started working on June’s photo calendars. I had planned to do four of them for various groups I belong to on Facebook. One of Joe Flanigan, Paul McGillion, Kavan Smith and then one for my secret group. The reference model I use for Briana, Alice Goodwin- you might have heard of her. She’s pretty popular with the UK ppl, she’s a model for Zoo magazine and their website. Very lovely woman.

Then I took a nap, because naps are good for you. And spent the rest of the day being lazy and watching Stargate SG:1 episodes. Research, seriously, I’m doing a story in the Stargate Universe, and I’m thorough on my research. LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

Monday, slept in. Number one priority there. I’m usually up around 4 am. An hour and a half before my alarm goes off. I lie there and just do some meditation as the alarm starts it’s cadence. Then I start moving around. It’s nice just lying there and letting my thoughts get some focus before taking on the world. I did work on the calendars some more. I even had them finished by late afternoon. And that was even with me distracting myself. “Ooooh, I need this. No wait, maybe that.” I have the cutest arguments in my head with myself when working on creative stuff. LOL ๐Ÿ˜› But Monday was a true do nothing day! And for once, I didn’t feel guilty about it. I’m used to doing stuff every day, and yesterday I didn’t do anything but what I wanted. I actually ran out of time doing nothing. LOL I was just starting to work on re-editing my outline for the story I’m working on, and noticed it was time for bed. Yeah, that 4 am comes awfully early. And I’m on days this week, so I needed some sleep. oooh forgot, I also posted some stuff on my deviant art page. I was finally able to get the iPad and the site to work together for a change. LOL

All in all, it was a nice relaxing weekend, no real drama, no whiny stuff. Just quiet and peaceful. Well for me, it was quiet and peaceful. LOL Hubs was busy doing yard stuff, and work stuff himself. And he had drama. But I’m keeping my mouth shut, and not saying those four little words (I told you so.). Because honestly, I feel bad that what happened happened. But sometimes people have to experience things on their own. No matter how much you want to protect them from the same painfulness you might have had when you went through something similar. ~le sigh~

I hope ya’ll had a wonderful weekend.
For those that watch the greatest spectacle in Racing, hope it was good! I know that Brazil’s Tony Kanaan won. And you know you watch a lot of Science Fiction when the name reminds you of a character in one of the shows. LOL Congratulations to him!!

Have a beautiful day! Stay safe!
And for those in Indiana, I love this website for my weather!
Paul Poteet I watch his video every morning. And if you’re on Facebook, he’s there too! Giving his updates. Check Paul out. (No, I’m not a sponsor lol)

Doobie Doobie Dooooo

title is from a facebook post I did yesterday, and received some funny comments…

anywho, it’s been a week… I really haven’t felt like writing. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Which is sad for me. Rarely do I feel like that. But when dealing with things that I deal with it, sometimes I need a breather.

It’s not been bad. Busy, maybe?

And I can’t talk about it. so…”Let’s keep moving.”

I’ve come up with a brilliant idea for my uniform, and I’d like to have it done by the time Gen Con is here. Debut, anyone? LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

And I’m going to remain tight lipped about it for now, as I’ve never seen any like what I’m planning. So… mum’s the word! ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s still pretty out, it’s raining a bit, and hopefully the weather system passes through, my sinus migraine is starting to get a little annoying, it’s still at a 3, but it’s trying to form into a full blown migraine at any moment. I’ve been trying to stay stress free, HA! So I’ve been reading some Stargate:Atlantis fanfic, and I found a really cute story. Still reading, so at the mo, it’s cute. Depends on how they end it, if I’ll share it or not with my friends. And that reminds me, omg! I’ve read two or three really amazing stories, spelling errors aside, if the story is ‘that’ good, I’ll ignore spelling issues. Only to come to the next chapter, and it’s NOT Complete!! OMG!! I want to know what’s happened?
I can’t even figure out which way it’d go in my brain to calm myself down, they really had some brilliant evil characters that I can’t wrap my brain around. ARRRGH! I’ve written the author, please continue! I’ve got to find out how this ends.

Which then makes me feel guilty, as I have posted a story on Plot Bunny that is a wip… I really need to get back to the wip’s and re-write a few bits, and then see if my co-writer wants to write. And I’ve been trying to coax my one bunny out to write on the challenge fic I’m working on. but like me, he just wants to veg a bit longer. So I’m not going to force it. Forcing yourself to write, never ends up in a good way for me. But perhaps… just perhaps… I might go out this weekend and find a nice spot to do some writing. The old pen to paper writing, that always seems to help. I’ve always preferred ink to digital, there’s just something really relaxing to me about writing longhand across a blank sheet of paper. ๐Ÿ˜€ Plus I get to doodle in the margins. LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a beautiful Thursday! Donate to the Red Cross if you can for the families in Oklahoma. Again, I’m not a journalist, and you’re already undated with all the news.

Peace! ~*~

& the plot bunny returns…

WooHOOO!! I am soo happy!!!

okay, first the important RL stuff; Dad in law is in the paperwork process of being discharged. Hubs will be driving him home and helping him run some errands. Food, entertainment and other necessities. ๐Ÿ™‚

***
And now, all hail teh plot bunneh!! YAY! She’s returned and has some really cool plot ideas. This is the first challenge I’m responding to, I’ve answered personal to me challenges. However this is the first open challenge and it’s the first time, I’ve written in the Stargate Universe. I’m excited!! And yeah, Briana is there!! But this one isn’t the Bri you know. 80% maybe… stay tuned.

snippet from the story I’m writing:

Briana tilts her head, and then looks into the Major’s eyes, “You have pretty eyes, Major. Mister Oozes the charm over here,” Briana pats John’s arm, “Seems to have a story to tell, and then I’ll share mine. And if no one else attacks me, then I think I could be persuaded to be a calm kitty girl.” Briana snorts and then giggles. “I haven’t been called that in at least a few years.”

John and Lorne both look at the woman as she’s giggling and snorts again. Once the transporter doors open, Briana pulls herself back to a semblance of normality and says, “Lead the way.”

John steps out first, and Lorne follows behind Briana.

Briana slows down a little bit, and waits for the Major to come up next to her, “Everything alright, Ma’am?”

“I was just going to ask if you were enjoying the view, Major.” Giggling Briana starts walking and catches up to John, as Lorne is dumbstruck, not knowing what to say.

John looks back to see his XO standing in the hall with a far off look on his face. Turning to Briana, “What did you do?”

“Who me?” Briana smiles at John, “While I’m not a hundred percent innocent, I didn’t do anything.”

***
So wanna read more? LOL :p I’m still writing, and it will be posted on my plot bunny page- where all my stories are kept. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m also working on a calendar for May! At this time, due to RL issues, I’m only making one, and it’s for my Flygirlie friends. ๐Ÿ™‚ HUGS

Other than that, it’s a beautiful day outside, the sun is shining, the sky is blue! It’s 66 degrees Fahrenheit. I’ll be having my lunch outside today, and enjoying the fresh air.

Ya’ll have a great day!!
Hugs

Email’s

1 Comment

OI and woohoo! I love receiving email’s from friends and family. But omg! I have some that go back to 2011, for a grand total of, drumroll please- 1200! Doesn’t sound like a lot does it? LOL :p

And since a lot of them are from 2011, obviously they no longer expect a reply, I might reply to some, but we’ll see. I’m actually going through and reading them. Archiving those I want to keep, Starring others so I know that they are important. Until I get a working desktop again, I’m looking at one of my larger external harddrives to save them too. Well the content in them. I have attachments of art, wip’s, pdf’s and other stuff that I feel is important.

Spring cleaning is in the air at the moment for me, and while I’ve done some physical cleaning, it now draws to the electronic cleaning, and why I mentioned all the email’s. We tend to have clutter in our lives and do not realize what is and what isn’t clutter. Email’s while necessary in some situations, are still clutter imo. And to have this many…OI! No wonder some days I feel overwhelmed when I sign into my account. So today and tomorrow are go through and delete as many as I can, reply to those that require a response, and save the images that I really want. Print off the pdf’s, punch them for a three ring binder, and read them. Trash what I don’t need and if I really want to keep the pdf – fine, then get it bound and put it on my bookshelf.

How many of you feel overwhelmed some days with all the electronic stuff; email’s, facebook-including PM’s, and all the other stuff. I belong to a few forums and well, I haven’t had time to visit any of them in the past couple of months. But… it’s just the way things are at the mo. When I can, I’ll go back, and say HI! Until then… I’ll be going through all my email’s, reviewing what needs to be kept, what I want to keep, and move on.

I’ve been feeling the blues, and part of my treatment is to unclutter my life. Get back to writing, and re-connecting with friends. I’ve started writing again, yay! I’m still in a bit of a snag in my story at the mo, and it might go another direction, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Some of my better writing has come from spur of the moment stuff. So we’ll see. Today is the first step at uncluttering some things, and then when that is accomplished, see about reconnecting with people. I’ve downloaded a twitter app for the iPhone, as I lost the other apps when I upgraded phones. weirdness if you ask me, but there was that whole issue with the iTunes I had for over seven months. So it was bound to happen. But yes, I’m back on Twitter. Tweet Tweet! Still don’t know how active I’ll be on there. When I first started, it was to RP- roleplay- with a group. That group has since disbanded, and I’m still a little perplexed at how some of the individual’s treated me afterwards. Oh well, their loss. I’m not going to sit and cry about it. It is what it is, and it’s done. But I do miss roleplaying online. Now however, I turn to writing to get that out of my system, and some days it works better. Even when I’ve hit a bit of a snag. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh and yes, I am on call today and tomorrow, and I am in my office and doing my email de-cluttering here. Nice, quiet, peaceful, no distractions…well you know. But still all in all, it’s a nice day. I have a pot of coffee to myself- that can be seen as good and/or bad. LOL ๐Ÿ˜› And so far the weather outside my window is nice. Plus I have a great parking spot today, right outside the front door, if the weather does turn bad.

I hope ya’ll are having a great day!!

**Updated to correct a few spelling errors. ๐Ÿ˜€

New Year- New schedule

2 Comments

Yesterday was my first day on our new second shift schedule, not to bad. I nearly worked through my lunch, and it was nice leaving an hour after everyone else. So…so far not so bad. Today is a ten hour day, I get off at 8p. I’m used to getting up early and staying up a little later. So hopefully it won’t be all that bad.

I got home last night to Hubs working in my room. He’s taken a wardrobe and has added to it, nice! I’ll have to take some pix to share. We’re still working on some things and he’s listening to my ideas. And of course, I’m listening to his too. It’s a two way street.

Been posting some more wallies on my photo blog. I do take requests…and some of my friends have been requesting the John Sheppard wallies, hence why there are so many of them. lol ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s a popular guy!!

I hope to find my writing muse soon…I do miss writing. Just still having some issues with memory and I kinda need to know where the heck I was going on this story. I did write an outline, but then my co-writer and I kinda took it off on a mild tangent…where/what were we doing? I’m sure it was brilliant. lol :p

anywho, it’s Tuesday and what a beautiful day it is. Enjoy!!

HI!

So it’s been a couple of days, I’m feeling better. Still can’t remember squat about my accident, but according to some research I’ve been doing…that’s normal. Whoo-something about me is normal. wow! LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m still without an ISP at the house, and lately after work, all I want to do is crawl into bed and relax. I don’t do manual heavy labor, but what I do do, can exhaust me.

As you’ve noticed, I changed the background etc. Will be changing my gravator shortly too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m starting to get into the spirit of the holiday. I’ll snap a pic of my trees on my desk later. LOL Yes, more than one, I like to have a little winter wonderland on my desk. Duh, I’m weird. :p

I hope ya’ll are doing well…I miss doing the Nanowrimo, but I just haven’t felt like writing, and my plot bunnies-silly little furballs- are playing in the snow. And what the one I do have staring at me, well it’s a new bunny in a different area….to write what he wants or not? We’ll see, I miss writing. I just need to go back and re-read what I’ve written – WIPs- and see if I can remember where I was going with it. I do have some outlines on some of them. So that will help. But…we’ll see, otherwise I have a new paper tablet and a pen. Still love writing the old fashioned way on paper. I am trying to locate my notes on what I wrote for Halloween, and get them up soonish. OI!

Anywho…take care, drive carefully, stay warm and stay hydrated. Yes, you can still suffer from dehydration in the winter months. Till later… Peace!!

oooh & Happy October!

tis the witching month, the moon has been high and the shelves of local retailers are busting out with the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yep, it’s that time of year! LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m wanting some caramel apples, or some apple cider. mmmm sounds delish!

Best thing to do in the fall, walk through the woods, inhale the crisp air, shuffle through the leaves, and just be in the moment!

What do you like to do in the fall? Raking leaves and then jumping in the pile! oh yeah, me too! LOL

I’m still watching the leaves turn on the trees outside my office window. I just love Nature Watching.

This is also the time of the year for a lot of craft fairs going on. Which gets me in the crafting frame of mind. I’ve found a cute little Nyan kitty that I would love to do with some Fimo. ๐Ÿ™‚

and it’s Read a Banned Book week, www.bannedbooksweek.org

Fibro flare up from hades

4 Comments

OMG! I don’t know whether it is the weather change or not? But last night my fibro flared up bad. And I’m still in excruciating pain. I have taken my ibuprofin, because I couldn’t find my Aleve. And it’s now down to a manageable level. But oy vey, this hurts!!

I don’t mind the weather change, it was nice getting up this morning and there was a brisk chill in the air. I always prefer colder climes. Just after the triple digits, my body has decided to revolt. um, yay? NO!

I’m trying to find my plot bunny again, she disappeared after some of the most illogical stuff on Facebook the other day! Gravity as a theory? Really? I’m sorry, that just still floors me! :p

anywho, while I’m looking for my hidden plot bunny, someone toss me an idea, word, phrase and I’ll blog on it. Trying something new. Let’s see how this works?

aloha!

ugh….

Leave a comment

so I made it to my appt this morning…had my blood pressure taken multiple times, I think I counted seven times..and then yay, the vampire was able to get my blood in one stick. My pulse was up, and the migraine was still really really bad. And, omg, I was right, my elevated blood pressure was causing my migraine.
since I didn’t have a driver, I wasn’t given the migraine shot. The doctor did give me the day off from work, with the order to RELAX!!
she also cancelled my old bp medication, as obviously it’s not working. And I got a pneumonia shot. cool. And yay, her bedside manner has improved! That’s always a plus. I was going to fire her in the past…because she wasn’t personable, and she treated me as if I was an annoyance in her day. Just because, I get free medical, due to my service in the ARMY and I’m a DAV, doesn’t mean, I put up with bad treatment. I deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Same as how I treat the people that see me.

so, I’m hoping to find my co-writer, and see if he wants to write. I’ve added in some more to the wip. And I’ve decided to do my ‘status’ updates on Google + if you have my email addy, send me a request.

till later, I’m following doctor’s orders and relaxing. Writing to me, is very relaxing!!
He has such a beautiful smile!! ๐Ÿ˜€
