A lot about nothin'

So; for the last two days I have been doing a bunch of little projects around the casita while K. is up north for training(you mean even further north?) Yes; further north! Anyway, I've gotten quite a lot accomplished, yet managed to completely avoid the pile-o-crap I really should address on my dining room table(bills, get well cards, insurance and EOB forms, and whatnot.) Stuff that I wish my clone would handle, but she is above all that! I moved all of my herb plants indoors, as they were just beginning to get established because of the lack of sunshine this "summer"(or what is loosely termed as such around here.) They are already perking up this evening and I look forward to using fresh herbs in my food preparation this winter; though not too thrilled about winter. There is termination dust already on the mountains behind our house, and the overnight temperatures are in the mid to low 30's. I have a fire burning in the wood stove as we speak(so to speak!) The other thing I've not done is shower, as I have actually been that busy! I'm sure if anyone was around, they'd surely point that bit of unpleasantness out. Phew! I will definitely get to that tomorrow, as I'm sure to notice myself reeking after all this busy-work I'm doing so as not to notice how even more empty the house is right now. I'm sure K. will want to re-arrange a few things, and that's fine. I've hung a few paintings and moved some furniture, so if he wants to tweak it a bit; I don't mind. My goal was to stay busy and not think of political or finance news at all(oops; looks like it's creeping in.) Did I mention that I'm sick of rain. Ah, the Pacific North West. Is Alaska a part of that region? I'm not even sure. I just know that I could probably count the sunny days that Anchorage residents experienced this "summer" on less than ten fingers. Yup; great. Oh well, enough about MY day; hope all of you folks had a good one. I'm gonna watch some non-sensical television, all the while trying to ignore those Burger King and Quaker Oats ad-spots (creepy) and call it a night. Night!

Snow already, and already that cold there??? It was almost 90F here today, although it is dipping down into the 50's and 60's at night now. I'll be glad when it gets even cooler/colder.

Fall is my favorite time of year, closely followed by Winter.

Keep yourself busy and K. will be home before you know it. Just try to make sure you freshen up a bit before he gets there, LOL. ;o)

Happy first week of Fall!

Love and hugs,

Have a great week.
Love, Vikki.

I have an art blog and it is here in sunny San Diego, I am creating conceptual art pieces as well as my own personal journals and funny sections. I have friends from all over the world. How about it?

Wow - I think I would have a hard time with that lack of sun, but lately, I've been enjoying some cooler, gloomier days.

I love the fall here in the Southeast because it's mild and usually dry. When we lived in the midwest, I dreaded the long, cold, dark winter. Here it's not so bad.

Happy Fall!

P.S. I tagged you with a silly meme in case you want to do it.

Oh- your clone is like that too?

Mine has really shirked her responsibilities of late and now (unshowered at the moment as well...) must go deal with her her mess.

So much for me having time to read blogs. I wish she'd get with it.

Dear Vikki,
You will enjoy the fresh herbs this winter. I enjoy having plants indoors when it is cold outside. Something green and growing really helps to keep my spirits up.
When ever I am home alone I also get way busy and seem to get all sorts of pojects finished. The chores semm to pile up until I have to do them!!
Sometimes getting cleaned up is the best part of the day.
