Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows...

I fear that I may be turning into a mole.


They're pretty cute, so that would be mostly OK, except for the obvious limitations.

The fact that we’ve had so many overcast days, combined with the fact that late day sun starts around 2PM now that we’ve fallen back – well, I was driving today, and I was in pain from the bright sun searing my retinas. I need sunglasses. And maybe more time spent in the out of doors, being sturdy and hearty and healthy and whatnot.

I cleaned out my chest of drawers last night, re-mating socks which had strayed from the fold. I also got a large pile of season-specific gear together for its annual trip to the basement, where it’ll hibernate til late Spring. I need to pull the winter gear out of the basement and make the switch.

This morning I also managed to pull out our down comforters, lay them out to air and fluff, as well as throw together a crock pot dinner – all before leaving the house, hitting Home Depot and making it to work 30 minutes early. Super Woman? No, no – just good at what I do, thanks!

I made an analogy today in a meeting that I quite liked. “It’s just popcorn and peanuts – whether you call it Cracker Jacks, Fiddle Faddle, or Crunch ‘n’ Munch”. Yes, I’ll be using that one again. In other work related news, I’ve been given a line of dialogue to voice on a new piece of training we’re creating about Teamwork. I’ll be playing Sheila, saucy prototype designer with a heart of gold, a full plate and some time management issues. I need to research the character for her motivation. We record tomorrow.

The cough is abating somewhat, the wheeze with it, but I’d sell my soul for a week in Jamaica, even if I am becoming a mole, salt water, D&G Pineapple and steel drums never hurt anyone! Seriously, could I just get a long weekend somewhere tropical? It would clear up every issue I have and I’ve been very, very good this year. Maybe I could just drink a Pina Colada and hop in a tanning bed. If this is November, February is going to kick my ass. By then I’ll be licking lightbulbs.

Tonight, I don’t really have big plans. I want to spray some mildew killer onto my grout and caulk to see if I can make a difference.

I really want to plant some pansies, but that will need to wait til… Sunday, probably.

Also, have you seen a big pile of money? If so, it’s mine. Please leave it at my door.
