Leave a comment

And bonus news today; I was informed that my four hour friday had changed…. from noon to four, to eight to noon! *Happy Dance* I’m up early anyway, so I get up, get the workie stuff over with and then have the rest of the day off. SWEET!

Because I will be contacting the Geek Monkey’s to help me with something. And I need to organize some things, go back through my clothes-yet again. I’ve lost some more weight. My clothes are starting to fall off me, even with a belt. Good/bad…eh!

So the list for this weekend (Fri-Sun):
* Go back through closet
* Go back through the bureau
* Install the Intuos and the CS 6 programs
* Rearrange/organize some of the furniture in the room
* Laundry- never goes away… lol
* Nap! (yeah, like I’m going to forget that one.) LOL
* Geek Monkeys to the rescue
* Have Fun!

So what do ya’ll have planned for the weekend, if the weather keeps getting hotter, I hope ya’ll stay out of the sun!

*** one minute the link is here, the next it’s gone…

Take care, have a great day! Drink plenty of water! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Wednesday!!


And what a beautiful morning it is!
No entry yesterday, I was busy! But I do have wonderful WoohOOOO News to share!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I received the ‘official’ email, and I am now one step closer to my Licensure!! ๐Ÿ˜€

yes, lots of exclamation points this morning, I’m all twitterpated. lol

In other news, today is an early Friday, I have tomorrow off, and then my four hour friday. I’m feeling fine at the moment. ๐Ÿ™‚ And today I work till six o’clock. So yeah, feeling FIIIINE! smirks

And in a brief app review, I finally found a great radio app for the iPhone. Tunein Radio, the streaming is awesome, no buffering! No song song song…bzzz bzzzz bzzzz… and then silence. And this app has stations from all over the US. I’m loving it. I really do prefer 70’s music, and I have over 100 stations to choose from, at the mo I’m listening to 181.FM Super 70’s. And I’m groovin over the playlist. lol ๐Ÿ˜› One of the options is the ability to fave your station, and then you can fave your songs, and you have the option to buy the song in app from iTunes! Sweet! There is an option to buy a more something or other version of the app, but for me. The free is working and I don’t have to buy a subscription to listen to my music.
For me, having an app that streams the radio for me is awesome. I can’t get a regular radio to work in my office. I can’t get the internet versions to play on my work comp, and then let’s not get started on why nothing wants to come through my speakers. OI! and yes, they are plugged in, turned on at the speaker, and the volume knob is turned up. Still nada…. IT shrugs at me. So this app is perfect for me.

Next app review post soon, I have downloaded some really fun free photo apps, and a disney game. I know! LOL

I’ve also posted two of the July calendars on the photoblog and I’ve gotten over, kinda, what ticked me off the other day, and I’m working on two more. One for my guy friends, some girlie hotness. And then one for the Joe Flanigan loves!! ๐Ÿ™‚ My bunnies and Snookums asked me very nicely. LOL At least they didn’t threaten to beat me. LOL

And now have a Beautiful Wednesday!! Enjoy the cool morning, and the bright blue skies!

And what a Friday it looks to be…


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!!

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)

um no idea what to call this… HI!

Leave a comment

LOL Oh yeah, I skipped yesterday, if you can’t say anything nice, say nothing at all. I couldn’t even do a vent post, because most of it… well ya’ll know I can swear. yeah… just a real humdinger of a day and let’s leave it at that! okie dokies.

So today, wow! Started out so pretty this morning, I slipped into my fave sandals, and now I’m wishing I brought a change of footwear. It’s pouring outside. Pretty in it’s own way. But my feet are wet. oooh not good. LOL

And it hasn’t been all that overwhelming or frustrating today. There have been moments, but I just breathe and let it go. No sense in keeping all that in, it takes away from my personal happiness, and drains me. And no, I know it’s not that easy. Otherwise I’d be out of a job. However you can learn to relax, reduce stress, and feel so much better, mentally and emotionally. And no, it doesn’t happen overnight. Let’s be realistic, it didn’t take you overnight to acquire all the habits you have, so… most habit changes take a year. There are research/journal articles on it on the web. But yes, to change a habit, it takes a year. So… being able to do what I do, and let it go, it took me a bit to learn and practice, to the point now, that it’s almost second nature.

Otherwise, I’m still writing, and omg I’ve gotten my email’s down. I’ll go on chrome tonight so I can get the exact number, I like knowing the numbers. I’m weird like that. So I am caught up and in the current month and year! WooHOOO! lol ๐Ÿ˜› ahhh it’s those little things…

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! till later…. HUGS!

Row, row, row your car…


And the weather hit last night, the storm and the torrential downpour has caused flooding in the area. I got up, and thank goodness decided to head into work early.

Took my usual route, which had some standing water, nothing I couldn’t handle. It was when I hit the city proper of Marion, that oops. The road I normally travel on for work, was closed. Very high water, flooded the streets. So I turned around and decided to take a secondary road. And that one was closed as well. So was the third and fourth alternatives. I finally traveled up to the main thoroughfair and did fine. And I noticed the police sitting at closed roads. Whooo the one I used to use all the time was open, and while there was standing water, nothing that I couldn’t handle. Got to work about on time. For me, I like to be at least half an hour early, hang out in the car, and prepare myself for the day. Today it was twenty minutes early so still pretty good. And bonus, one of the staff brought in donuts. Woot! ๐Ÿ˜€

anywho, I have an appointment downtown during my lunch hour for my licensing application, and I can not be late. I’ve already talked with some of the staff and have an alternate route planned out, and I should still get there on time.

Please be careful if you live in any of the states that have been hit with these storms. Flash floods are not fun! Flooded roads also not fun! Use your common sense, drive accordingly and plan on using alternate routes. Oh yeah, leave early. I am so glad I left earlier than usual.

Have an awesome Friday!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Wait five minutes…

Leave a comment

Very popular saying here in Indiana, in reference to our weather. “Don’t like it, wait five minutes.”

And whoa, that is so true some days. Woke up this morning, and while it wasn’t all that, it was nice. Then a bit later in the morning the wind started picking up. Went to lunch and it was okay. Come back in to my office and shut off my lights, yeah still have a migraine. OI! But then it started to get really dark, and when I look up again it’s a torrential downpour outside my window. So yeah, wait five minutes.

Be careful out there, we’re still under weather alerts!



I’ve received a few email’s on why I haven’t touched on the Boston Marathon tragedy.

Honestly, while once upon a time, I wanted to be a journalist, I’m NOT! And while yes this is a horrible tragedy, it is getting enough attention through the ‘real’ media. Which is where it should be. IMO
Also I see various tragedies every day, not on this scale, but still… and so I blog about what I want, and try to keep it somewhat light, silly. Yesterday’s blog entry got a lot of likes, and was even re-blogged; thank you all very very much!! You have no idea what that means to me!! HUGS! ๐Ÿ˜€

Now then with that being said, what do I discuss today?
well honestly, I don’t know. Oooh, I got a new stress ball, and a tin of tea. Hubs brought me a world stress ball, that way I can hum, “I’ve got the whole world in my hands.” And possibly not rip it in half. The tin of tea was from a friend that understands the healthy benefits of a good cup of tea. It’s hard to be cranky or mopey when drinking tea. At least that’s my opinion. Oh right, and theirs too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Otherwise it’s a chilly Wednesday morning with some scattered rain here and there. Still beautiful, and peaceful in it’s own way. I’ve been plotting out the next bit in my story, as I’ve hit a snag, my own fault. I plotted before starting to write, but…lost that bit of paper. I have now downloaded a new app, imagine that, for just this purpose. Corraling my plot bunnies. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll do a mini review of it later and let ya’ll know what I think of it. It brags a lot of user friendliness, and ease of customization. Okie dokies. We’ll see.

Other than that, I’m thinking of starting a tradition here that I used to do on twitter and tumbler. Let’s see if anyone recognizes the #FollowFriday hastag? LOL ๐Ÿ˜› But yes, as a thank you to the one’s that consistently like my posts, and to the one’s that have reblogged me, I’m going to make you the first one’s on this Friday’s check out this blog. If you don’t want that, please leave me a comment. If you have a blog that you think I should take a lookie at, please leave me a comment with the link. I am voracious reader of a lot of different genres. So I appreciate different recommendations.

Guess that’s it for now, going back to plotting, squeezing the new stress ball, and enjoying a bit of tea. Ya’ll have a great day!


Happy Whovian Wednesday! :)


for those following me on facebook, know I’ve been re-sharing a bunch of Dr Who items. It’s just Fantastic! (Guesses on who my first doctor was? LOL)

Beautiful morning, got to work, came in, kept the lights off in the office, to enjoy the natural light- much easier on my tendency to get migraines. When all of a sudden it gets really dark in my office. A friend came and grabbed me to take a quick ‘walk’ code for a cigarette break. We got out to her car, lit up, took a drag, and then the first big drop hit me on the head. Um….
She decided we have had enough, grabbed us some umbrellas, and just as I got mine open, the sky opened up and it’s pouring outside!
Now honestly, I love storms. Always have. It just seems to energize me, I’ve never been able to explain it to anyone. A few appear to get it, or they are just being kind and then thinking I’m cracked. Which duh, they might be right. But then again… oooh, cue the Billy Joel song, You might be rightSo here I am back in my lovely office, and watching it rain. Think it’s time I open my document and do some more writing. Right after I go get some more go juice aka Coffee. [_]> Cheers!

2nd winter

Leave a comment

The title comes from a pic I saw in my newsfeed earlier this morning. From the Hobbits. ๐Ÿ˜€

Okay, so this winter storm watch was accurate. I really didn’t expect this much snow. And you get your car stuck once… Hubs drove me in to work this morning. And I’m quite happy he did. Even roads that were ‘plowed’ (half-hazardly) people and us were sliding. ugh.

We were talking in the car, well he was talking, I was listening and waking up, hadn’t had my third cup of coffee yet. lol

He was telling me about a scam that he’s seen at work, a few elderly customers have been coming in and asking for gift cards that can be used anywhere with a high dollar amount placed on them. His curiosity made him ask what they were for. The customers told him both at separate times, that they had won the publisher’s clearing house and that they had to send the money to get their money. Thank goodness he knows enough about scams. He informed them that in good conscience that he could not sell them the gift cards, and that they need to take the letters to the police. They, the customers said that the people have called them too. He suggested that they have the police look into that as well.
***I’ll keep ya’ll updated with what I hear. But yeah, definite scam going on, and they are using the Publisher’s Clearing house name to con people. Be AWARE!!

I’ll add in a pic to this after it’s published, so you can see the drive in this morning. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Again, I can’t believe how much snow has been deposited, and it’s still snowing out. I’m watching it come down while sitting in my nice heated office. LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

ya’ll take care, be careful!!

Adding in the hobbit pix.
