A picture is worth a thousand words?

This terlet carousel about sums up my feelings about today🐽 Lemme see… Light snow flurries ALL day. Not the pretty kind although that’s a good thing because my Ninja is being droven as a commuter car at the moment and it is not really a good snow vee-hickle with its performance taaaaars. I am a moom. I worry.

Oh man, almost NO space-ification the last I dunno how many days. I got a wee bit of space-ification yesterday when the GG went out to buy me a bday gift. It turned out to be the wrong size, so I got a wee bit more today while he went out to replace it. It’s a bamboo dish drainer. I use one for air drying the dishes I don’t put in Bertie. I took a close look at mine a while back and realized there was MOLD all over the bottom of it so I put it on my xmas list but somehow there was a communication snafu so I got it for my bday. Except the 18″ inch is too big for my counter.

I didn’t really NEED or WANT ANYTHING for xmas or my bday. I mean, I’ve got a new laptop on order somewhere out there. And I am in a deacquisitional mode anyway. But I humored people by making a little list of items that I don’t really need or don’t really need yet. I’m angling to get back into some fiber arts stuff but haven’t really gotten geared up yet.

At the end of the day, I pulled some veggies out of one of the crispers and there was LIQUID splashing around in the bottom of it. That meant I had to PULL OUT THE REFRIGIMATATOR so I could get the drawer out (you don’t wanna now know) so I could clean it and repackage some of the produce. I think it was just water and I DON’T think anything is wrong with the fridge but now that I’ve said that, I expect it to crap out any minute🐽

So that was today. Oh, except I am re-reading The Firebrand, a “retelling” of the story of the Trojan war by Marion Zimmer Bradley told from Cassandra’s point of view. I am no expert on mythology in any way shape or form but I know this is a “loose” retelling. Still, it was a fun book the first time I read it and it’s fun the second time around. I identify with Cassandra because there was a period in my life when I predicted some horrible family events and no one would listen to me. We may or may not talk about that some time. Oh, rest assured, awful as it was, our “war” was a first world late 20th century American war involving lawyers and real estate developers and a land “conservancy”. No one died. (AND NO ONE STORMED ANY GD CAPITOL BUILDING.)

    We could get some snow this upcoming weekend. Or we won’t. Or we’ll get a few flurries. Or perhaps a foot. (such is winter storm prediction around here) I’m with you on the non-birthday gifts. A great one would be for my kids to be here and help me go through a bunch of *stuff* to get rid of–of theirs and of their dad’s. It’s hard to do it on my own. I know that “war” story. 😉

    I hope you decide to share that intriguing Cassandra moment you had. You gave enough clues that a reader could probably figure it out, roughly. Reveal!
    Oh! I’ve been meaning to ask: what kind of horns/antlers are hanging over your fireplace? Quite impressive! Elk?
