More mutterings from the Staffing office...

Holy wow... we had such a gorgeous Midsummer yesterday! I am still in awe... I can't remember the last time we actually had SUN on the Summer solstice... It was awesome. ^-^

So I got rid of my cell phone today... and have saved us $40 a month. W00t. I'm ridiculously ecstatic & terrified at the same time. I only vaguely remember not having a cell phone... And once I started texting? It became my main mode of communication. But in an effort to drastically simplify our lives & decrease our massive amount of bills, we're cutting out things we can live without for now. I fully intend to get a cell phone again. But not until I've managed to climb out of debt. The thing I'm most missing? Being able to tweet via my phone... I'm such a dork... o_O But that's how I was able to keep in touch with some of my friends & able to have multiway conversations easily. I'll still tweet a ridiculous amount from my computer, I'm sure, but it's still weird not having my phone to use for this. Lolz...

My, oh my... how reliant & dependent I've become on the tech around me... Eek...

But overall I feel good about my decision to cut my phone & feel freer than I have in a while. ^-^

Well then... I'm off to finish poking through recipes for the Tea Party... Which is FRIDAY...

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhh...

ahem.

Anywho... Back to trying to organize. Have a lovely day my sweets! =D

Morning Rambles...

So... 16 oz of coffee has done absolutely nothing for me this morning... bleh... I still feel so not awake. I've had the kitten climb my back three times in about 10 minutes... OUCH. Those tiny claws of his are sharp.

I got the first page in my new art journal done yesterday evening. ^-^ I got an awesome old book from the flea market for $1, called The Captive Witch... lmao... So I figured I'd set her free from the book via art. Sounds good to me.

Lhu has decided not to eat Anubis. Yay! He is rather enjoying having a kitty that will play rough & tumble with him & not bitch about it. ^-^ Macha & Phiphi are still being bitchy... ah well. They'll get over it.

Heading back to work tonight, and I so don't wanna go! I wish I could work from home... that would be awesome. XD We brought up the option in our staff meeting this morning, but we got shot down... pity.

Sooooo... I suppose I'd better get those invitations finished, as I wanted to finish them like two days ago... and here's some random pics of my supremely adorable nephew, Triston. ^-^



He loves to play with whatever we're drinking... my diet Pepsi bottle... Britt's 5 hr energy shot... Lolz. Fortunately, he can't unscrew the lids yet, but he seems happy just to nom on the tops. Yep... this is my favorite teacup human... <3

Alice: Madness Returns

Tomorrow, my sweets, the madness returns...








Meet Anubis...

Soooooo... Britt & I went to Target the other day to get some eggs (we got a free dozen egg coupon in the mail... sweet!). On our way there, we saw a van parked in the mall parking lot with a BIG sign in the back window... it said "KITTENS".

It was hot out... and we were rather appalled that someone would have animals in their car in the heat. So we stopped by to see what was up. There was a woman in the van & a cat carrier full of kittens in the back. Two long haired, one grey, one black, three black & brown, one grey & white & one black & white.

Britt immediately fell in love with the long haired black kitten... who looks like a miniature Macha. So much for her rule of "No more monochrome cats. We need some color." lolz...

Anyways. This is Anubis. I wanted to name him Goblin, but Anubis is what we settled on. ^-^ He's our newest & probably last addition until we get a bigger place. I have no regrets about getting him, even though he wasn't pre-planned (forget accidental pregnancies... I have to worry about accidental kittens... o_O)

Our other cats have less than good opinions on the matter, but are adjusting. ^-^

So without further ado, here are baby pics! =D

Meet Anubis...


First bath, as soon as we got him home...


And those awesome ears are why I wanted to name him Goblin! =D

Britt did the washing, I did the drying. Poor wet cat...



We took him out to the living room to run around while we supervised... Macha & Phiphi were not amused... XD





And now we have three black cats... omg...




Yep... he's nomming the kitty tunnel... o_O


Protecting my curtains from the newest hellbeast... My poor curtains... @_@
Bought a squirt bottle & labeled it the "Good Kitty Maker"... Have had to squirt the mini-cat several times for trying to eat my computer cord... *facepalm*

Anywho... So that's what I've been up to this weekend... I recently learned that a herd of cats is called a "Clutter"... I definitely have a cat clutter... XD

Well then... I'm off to make sure Lhu hasn't eaten the baby...

XOXO

Garden Pics!

So I know I promised to post pics like forever ago... and then didn't... lolz... so! Here we go. This is my garden as of about a week ago. Everything is decidedly larger now... ^-^ So there will be more pictures eventually! Yay! Enjoy, my lovelies! ^-^

OK... So this isn't my garden plot, but it's Britt's & my Lover's Lane rose that she bought for us for Valentine's Day a few years ago... This is her first bloom of the Summer! =D


So I think Britt's washing her hands with the hose or something... But the pic was actually supposed to be of the bed, not her backside (although, it IS a very nice backside... ^_~)


Weeding...

And watering...



I can't wait to post more recent pics! The beans we planted & huge & booshy now! And that one, lone pea in the lower right hand corner is still alive & kicking. Woohoo! I planted some yellow beans around it, so it wouldn't feel as lonely... I couldn't find any pea starts... o_O

Well then... Off to wake up Britt so I can pour some coffee in her, wake her up & head to town for the Farmer's Market! Yay!!! I see Man Pies in my future... Made of chicken, beef, lamb or veggies... not men. As far as I know, Mrs. Lovett is not in their employ...

XOXO

I can't believe it's June 1... only 24 days til the Mad Tea Party, and I just realized I haven't got my "Woohoo! It's Tea Party Time!!!" post up yet! Oops... Things have been kinda nutso around here as of late, but we're working it out & slowly, but surely, balance is returning. ^-^

Soooooo... As soon as my dishes are finished, I've got a Tea Party post to write & link to our splendorific hostess... and garden picture updates!

But first, I really must finish my housework... I go back to work tonight & want it done before hand! Okies... Be back in a bit, but for now, ONTO THE DISHES!!!
