Burrrrrrr!

Baby, it’s frikkin freezing frigid outside. Blue skies are deceptive. It’s cold!

The vet went to town, as in hopped a bus to his own place downtown, and I’m in a cleaning mood.

Yes, the best way to clear cobwebs out of your head is to open the blinds and get busy cleaning up your space. I was working on the kitchen, decided it was time for a break.

Anyone watching “Good Behavior” on TNT?

I missed Tuesdays episode… we tried to find it “on demand” last night, the vet operating the remote to no avail, so I waited until he walked out the door today, then asked a kid, click, click… found it. Good, now we can do a Good Behavior marathon so he can get caught up. It’s a new show, first season, just started mid November. I don’t know why I like it… she’s so messed up, but trying… maybe that’s it.

Well, I’ve got ye 95% of my Christmas shopping done by ordering online. Box of mittens arrived today. I ordered stuff the kids wanted from Walmart last night; added a 30 roll pack of toilet paper, &c. Hey, why not? I don’t drive… whatever I buy has to be hauled home via public transportation.  If I can get bulky or heavy things shipped free to the house, it will change the way I shop.

Guess I should get busy again… that floor is not going to mop itself.  Thanks for reading!

Shopping Shrinks & Bowls

I wanted to take some time to absorb things, so I hopped a bus to Boardman after I left the shrink’s office yesterday. So much for a mad shopping spree. I spent a whole $1.07 at the card shop in the mall and only $6 and change down at “Pipe Dreamz” on Market Street.

So, how did the shrink appointment go?

We talked. I think we reached a greater understanding or at least now we can talk to clarify what is said with what is heard, if that makes sense. Like, I told him that he pissed me off and he hears that I was angry so I must have projected anger felt towards someone else on him as that happens sometimes… but no, it was not misdirected. Talking about what exactly pissed me off lead to talking about other things and I feel much better about our ability to communicate more effectively now.

Oh, want to see what I got up at the Re-Hab store?

That brown wok shaped bowl resting on a chafing dish base will become a little bird bath for a flower bed, with a bit of clear caulk and a purple birdie. The ceramic cat will go outside, too. I also got candle glass, picture frames, and a few other things, but didn’t find what I went there looking for (small baking dishes) so maybe better luck next time.

As for the yellow bowl? It is old with crazed glaze, inside and out, and feels way too heavy for a bowl of that size. I don’t know why I bought it as I don’t think it is suitable for food use, not sure what I am going to do with it. I feel like there is something special about this bowl, so if you know anything about old bowls, please share. This one was made by the “GEM CLAY FORMING CO” in Sebring, Ohio.
