Monday

Before the pandemic, my life was quiet and sedentary and spent mostly here in my house. Since the pandemic, my life has been quiet and sedentary and spent mostly here in my house. But, of course, it feels very different and, surprisingly to me, more so now than a few months ago.

People in my dreams no longer wear masts or social distance. Last night I got a great job an was good at it only to have the company go under but, before I woke up, I had gotten another great job and was grateful that the first company had gone under.

Today's two big projects are breakfasts and afghan. I ate my last pre-made breakfast today. I'm ready to make a batch of breakfast burritos but I'm tortilla-less. Uwajimaya carries the kind I like so I might just bounce up there and score a bag. Or I might play it safe and make egg muffins here.

I have two more rows of squares on my afghan and then the boarder. I'm still loving working on it so not in a mad rush to get it done but it would be fun to finish soonish.

So, yep, another day of thrills and chills here at SDHQ. Jes the way i lak it.

Stupidest debate on the planet

The stupidest debate on the planet is the one I'm having with myself over Instgram. I refuse to have anything to do with Facebook. I am addicted to Instagram. Facebook owns Instagram. Facebook is planning to merge the two (with Wechat and Messenger thrown in the mix as well). So, eventually, I'm going to have to give up on Instagram. I'm trying to start weaning myself now and it's not going well.

I'm thinking I'll spend more time on Reddit. My subreddit list is one of expediency. Stuff I routinely research and/or want the latest updates for. Not interesting stuff. Also I hate the web version of Reddit and the Android app version of Reddit.

I need a better interface and better subreddits.

I actually did go out and get tortillas just like in the olden days. Wild. And I made a week of breakfast burritos. Bacon and cheese and egg.

I got the tortillas at Uwjimaya which is a very large Japanese grocery in the nest neighborhood. It's within easy walking distance but I drove. If you get their early enough, you can often score yesterday's sushi marked down. And today I did. I got a nice little platter - enough for lunch and dinner reduced from $15-$10. Nice score.

The last of my spending spree landed today. My wonderful comforter is looking too shabby but I love it's size and fluff. So I decided to try a duvet cover. I generally do not like duvet covers because they always look look lumpy and sloppy. But, they sure are cheap on Amazon so I got one. I did not like the feel of the fabric but it's great for fall and it sure looks nice.

A couple of weeks ago, I got a little nuts and ordered two more. They are wonderful patterns that go in my room and make me happy. I got two because I knew I'd be returning one or both.

So, of course, they are both wonderful and I cannot return either. They are amazingly beautifully made and very soft and nicely weighty. I'm now set for the winter. For a total of $60. Sweet.
