Friday... or Monday?

Well, technically it is Friday today... but as Spirit & I took off yesterday it is sorta a Monday... and with the turn in the weather (from 88`F to 24`F) work is just chock full o' morons. People P*A*N*I*C when the temperatures drop, I tell ya. And they are not even actually LOOKING to see if they are low on LPG, they just call all freaked out. Sigh.

Yesterday was a wee bit busy. First my thyroid testing @ 8am, then Spirit got stitches out & had another procedure done, then lunch @ Kim Phung, then haircuts, and eventually headed home in time for the ABC pest people's quarterly checkup. Then we had to go pick up the crickets that had FINALLY ARRIVED ...and back home to feed some anxious (or is that annoyed?) dragons who'd been picketing for crix since Monday. The rest of the evening was spent hand coloring our Yule cards... and as neither one of us was paying attention to the TIME, we noticied the hour sometime around 11pm... EEK! So off to bed we went, tired but t…

art is in

These are from my "Express Yourself" mixed media artgroup on Yahoo.... an altered playing card (bottom left, pink) and an interactive ATC (other 2) using bottlecaps... stay tuned... 3 other groups have swaps coming up, and there is always something going on @ Nness :-) Today is going well enough, considering I woke up @ 6:32am instead of 6am!! Must have turned alarm off instead of hitting snooze. Sigh. Managed to get 3 cats fed, 4 salads made & handed to dragons, peeked in on (sleeping) furries, and saw both snakes in their logs... grabbed toast & coffee and headed to my car..even made it to work on time!

goodbye to yet another Friend

"If Tears Could Build a Stairway"

If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane,
I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say "goodbye".
You were gone before I knew it, and only goddess knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness, and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you, no one can ever know.
But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more;
to remember all the happy times, life still has much in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today-
A hallowed place within my heart is where you'll always stay.

Well, so long to another friend... Jeannie J passed 11/24/06 as a result of a motorcycle wreck.... but it would have been how she'd have wanted to go, I think. The memorial service was Sunday 11/26 at ARC and it was just wonderful. The room was filled to overflowing and many reassuring, reaffirming things were said during it. And now, for me & everyone else...
