"figuruin"- What most people do between September n January over the Holidays, being lazy n over-eating. It ends in January when everyone decides to diet for the New Year.
Hope everyone has a good Columbus Day long week-end. Mine will be full of extra work, n I'm still worn out from last week.
I'm still working on tracking down my orange bins with last years decs in a box here somewhere. Still need to dig out warmer clothes, hats n mittens to wash. We've only had a handfull of cool days so far, n managed yesterday without the hoodie for errands. Only a handful of leaves, mostly vines are turning color this week.
My list of to-dos is getting longer as the days shorten with less day-light. Not getting anything noisy done all night while I'm awake is really slowing projects down. Moving n sorting thru boxes at night is too loud. Doing laundry is too loud, even cooking n doing dishes is waking up folks.
I so want nightly internet, dvd movies, n early am guitar playing back in my life again. I feel like a sound prisoner... n my impulse feeling is to rebel.
I hate being stifled because it reminds me of my entire childhood at home n going to Catholic school. Now I have to be quiet at work n home too. I hate to be told what to do in my only free time.
Can't wait until I'm back in an autonomous situation again.
MB sent me a card she made using duct tape to my new address. Here it is on my table keeping company with some October decs; a battery-power pumpkin lamp n elec candle from dollar tree, an orange seahorse figurine from the Red Rose Tea Nautical collection, n a topaz colored teddy bear charm given to me from a Little One (who's now taller than me) n shares my birthstone month.
