mmm, toasty

Oh, tomato soup with cheese on top… Oh, sourdough bread with butter on top, broiled to perfection… Oh fall/winter comfort foods… I love you. You make me feel so nice and warm.

Yesterday, I raked my back and front yard. It was nice. Tomorrow, I get to steam clean carpets after work.

I think I prefer being grown up instead of stuck in the middle, aka my 20s.

For the love of dogs…

leave a comment »

Yesterday while Kevin and his brother in law wired the house for cable, I took Desirae and the mutts to the dog park. She was blown away by how big it was and how much space there was for her dog to run. We go to Westcrest which I must admit is a bigger one, totaling 5 acres.

There are no dog parks or off leash area in Olympia, Lacey, or Tumwater. There is only one in Tacoma and one in Lakewood. Seattle has 11. Redmond , Mercer Island, Edmonds and SeaTac all have one. O rly?

Seriously people! We need more dog parks! For the dogs! And for the humans.

SODA and COLA are great things for dog parks in King County. You other counties, get your stuff together and get a dog park. Some people live in apartments and their dogs need to get out. Some people like to take their dogs to the park to socialize them. And some people just like to take their dogs to the park so their dogs can just be a dog in a large enclosed space.

Dogs love parks just as much as dogs love trucks.

Cooler than a sinus infection and no voice?

A flat tire…

This weekend is over when?

Christmas music, I secretly love you!

leave a comment »

I am so tempted to flood my iPod with Christmas music. A total waste of money, I know. I’m hoping Starbucks will have some freebie Christmas music soon, doubtful though.

At one point in my life I hated Christmas music. Retail will do that to you. But then last year, because of my store’s location, we didn’t play Christmas music. My work is in a very Jewish neighborhood. I sort of missed Christmas music for the first time in my life.

Now that we are moving into a house, I’m all stoked for the season! I can go into my office and geek out over all of my magazines and reciepes and dream about all the awesome things I could do but won’t.

The one thing I love about iPods are I can have all the craptastic music I want on it and no one else really has to listen to it but me.  Yes me, I could listen to anything and you’d not notice… I’d just have to live with sore ears for a few hours after geeking out over things from NPR and The New Yorker.
