Nothing says let the holiday drama begin like a newly pair of shaped eyebrows.

Today is just another dreary Seattle day. Yay! I’m trying to reduce my caffeine intake… yuck.

THINGS I LOVE.

  • heavy coffee mugs
  • rain drops on branches
  • fuzzy slippers
  • hot vanilla tea
  • hardware stores
  • tile
  • semi-trucks with wreaths on their grill
  • cooking magazines
  • piggy banks
  • furry beards
  • snuggling in bed with the dog after Kevin leaves
  • butternut squash
  • Nivea’s A Kiss of Moisture
  • Henry Mancini
  • Seattle all decorated up for the holiday
  • soup
  • brisk walks
  • new jeans
  • the thought of snow for the weekend?
  • Monkey puzzle trees

  • pecans
  • Ikea decorating possibilities
  • a freshly washed and lotioned face
  • new MAC eyeliner
  • fur lined hoods
  • new opportunities
  • snotty baristas

THINGS I DO NOT LOVE.

  • slow wireless internet connections?
  • a dog on my next door neighbor’s back porch, on a blanket with food and water dishes near by. NO ONE LIVES THERE! The little old lady who owns it is in a home and her daughter tends to the yard. Um, excuse me? Hi yes, this dog needs to be inside more than outside. It has shorter hair and it is 40 degrees outside! RUDE!! Poor older thing. Who do you belong to?! Why are they being so rude to you? I’d help you if I could be you seem to be locked in the yard? If you are still there tonight, I’ll talk to Kevin about it and we’ll see what we can do. Don’t die, you look old. I ran about to do errands and when I came home the dog on the porch was no longer there.

Drinking isn’t against the law if you’re over 21….

leave a comment »

You really should have a drink today… seriously.

Today is the the 75th Anniversary of the Ratification of the 21st Amendment (the end of Prohibition,) December 5th.

If you’re an American, be a Constitutionalist and have a drink. A beer. A shot. A glass of wine. Bottoms up!!

Please be smart about it. If you have a serious problem with alcohol, I also advice you to look deep in yourself and see if you need help. I’m one of the few in my family that doesn’t have an obsessive gene involving alcohol. I have depression and anxiety instead.

Dear dog-

Abigail aka dog-

Yes, that was the furnace that turned off… thank you for barking. If you really feel that someone might be entering the house, jump off the bed and go look. Dummy. I know you are still a little unsure about this new little house but yeah… sitting on the bed and barking isn’t nearly as effective as you think. But, I’m glad that our bed has become your safe spot. You’re so cute and a pretty good dog, way to be. In a bit we’ll go get coffee and I’ll make sure the lady gives you a biscuit or 2.

Hot damn!

The element in the hot water heat was replaced… I wish I had a picture of the old one, but sadly I don’t.

Hot water is on the way!

Happiness is on the way, too!
