Turning the cool corner

We finally have rain! Real rain. Not the kind that is prediction only. This is wet and glorious. It's also the first day since last Spring that my feet are cold. As in I should get up and go find some socks. It's lovely.

I think I'll take advantage of it and go out a little later. Probably just to Grocery Outlet. But, at least that will be better than getting into a hot car and driving in the glaring sun. I might even wear a long sleeved shirt.

Earlier this week, I had a run in with Evernote that ended up with my having to replace my Capital One Visa. While I was crawling over the Capital One site looking for contact info. I ended up finally finding a phone number via Google. Capital One is not interested in talking to me via chat, email or phone which is interesting. However, in fairness, and, as it turns out, I didn't really need to talk to them anyway. Their systems are pretty good and automated.

But while I was poking around, I found a 'change the image on your card' link. Oh yeah? Years ago Discover offered this (they no longer do). I had the coolest Discover card for a while. But now, Capital One lets you upload your own photo. It's very restrictive - you upload and then they have to approve. I uploaded the cartoon of me that is my current LJ user pic and it was rejected. But, I figured out that it was rejected because of the Mariners logo. So I erased that and retried.

Meanwhile I also have a Capital One Savor card. This is a new card they recently started - 4% back on food and entertainment. It's fatal flaw is that it has this lovely wood grained graphic on it that totally blends in with most restaurant tables in the Seattle area. You put the card down and it disappears - no waiter can even see that you are trying to pay. It's hilarious. And annoying. So I was thrilled to be able to change that image! I used the same cartoon of me but the one in the green outfit.

Clearly I have too much time on my hands. But, also, will have the coolest credit cards. I can't wait to get them.

I had a couple of sewing disasters yesterday. Not really disasters since I was working on a toile - a practise piece to get the one pattern right. But, still, putting a zipper in upside down is just stupid. And other issues. I really want to finish this piece I'm working on but I hate it so much. I think today is the day that it gets done. I need to move on with my life, there isn't that much of it left that I can just waste it!

Depending on what's available at Grocery Outlet, I may make an Instant Pot meatloaf today. It's been on my list of things to do for a while and I think today is the day.

But first I need to get dressed and make up my bed.
