We've got a runner!!

Well, the new allergy medicine (cetirizine) is total fail. First of all it makes me sleepy and that's annoying. But worst of all it does not stop my nose from running so what's the stupid point?! Oh well, now I know.

I'm very weary of blowing my nose.

I bought cookies from a baker on Etsy that had tons of wildly favorable reviews. The cookies took twice as long to get here as promised, were dry and only moderately delicious. I had specifically asked if they had coconut in them and was told they did not but they sure taste like they do. Lesson learned. There are a ton of bakers now on Etsy but I don't think I'll be trying that little experiment any more.

All is fine here today. The usual. Biggie is out on the porch watching for birds and flies. The house is tidy and quiet. I'm waiting for a couple of Amazon deliveries.

Today's project is culling shit off the shelves in the haul to make room for more of my yarn stash. This will mean filling up the Goodwill bin again and make for another drop off trip. But, I think I have room in my busy schedule and the car battery will appreciate the jolt.

So that's the plan.

My new monocles!

texasts suggested that what I need to fix my seeing issue was a monocle and he was not wrong and now I kind of have one and it works! I bought cheap readers from Amazon and, after much work popped the lens out of the left side so that the left is not corrected but the right eye is. And it works fine and dandy. This will hold me over til I can get to the eye doctor. Yeah!!

I started work on clearing my shelves and putting more yarn up there but the rest of my yarn looks sloppy so I'm making it all into yarn cakes. I'm about half done and am on a break now that probably will last until tomorrow.

On Twitter and LJ and Instagram, lots of people are out and about. But out my terrace, I see no one and I hear no one. It's weird. Ok, but weird.

The unit just below me went just listed for sale $630,000. They haven't posted interior photos yet. I can't wait to see. It is an exact replica of my unit, just one floor below.

Tonight is breakfast for dinner. My Sunday night goto. The hardest part is remembering what day of the week it is.

Wow, is it ever cool to be able to so easily see the words I'm typing!
