Lazy Daisy

After some reflection, I am going to proceed communicating with a Jersey guy, even though Chicago guy is coming to meet me. I feel that's the right thing to do, it'll help me maintain perspective. In this day of dating, everyone starts out casual until otherwise stated.

The Jersey guy can be Captain Jersey I think, because almost all of his photos are of him on boats and his current favorite pastime is sailing. We're about to reach open waters on the high seas communication stage, and I have a healthy dose of skepticism that this pirate won't send an email. I would love to be "all hands on deck" for him, but I don't know where my canine and feline crew would fit into that picture. Picturing the crew in little lifevests does bring a chuckle. Just think guys, all the fresh fish you can eat!

But, speaking of skepticism, Doc Hawaii has not followed through with a photo. Cest le vie. Our 2nd phone conversation contained many of the same elements from the 1st, as I said.

Yesterday's cleaning accomplishments:
Floors
Ceilings (yes, I'm serious)
Kitchen
Bathroom
Curtains
Laundry
Lawn

My family would be proud. Although, I didn't get to the windows. Maybe next weekend.

However, the attempt to assemble 3-drawer unit failed. Reason: ALL hardware was missing from the box. Note to self: Don't buy something like that again without checking inside the box first. Email sent to California Closet to see if I can purchase the hardware for that model separately. Special shoutout to my dear friend Lisa because she was with me when I made this poor shopper mistake many years ago.

I fully intended to sort out the garage today. (Hush, Edward, go back to playing the beautiful piano sonatas please?) However, Mother Nature decided I should experience a tornado warning and a flooded front window and garage instead.

And although it didn't last more than 2 hours, I am just wiped out from the stress of it. Even the crew is exhausted from being stressed. Duncan the cat was like WTF? Thanks for the Reiki though Sweden, it was definitely absorbed.

I have a soaking wet wall as the worst of it, and we lost power for a bit. I do wonder when this little 1950s cottage structure will collapse. 25 days left on my lease. Although the paperwork clearly states that if no renewal is sent, the lease continues on a monthly basis as is. It is probably somehow my responsibility to say something to them once the end of the month arrives, but I have learned from these people that the less said, the better. Of course, now I have a soaking wet wall that I suppose they should know about. Grrr. Please don't tell me about the mold. I am sure it has already been growing for years and years.

Despite my best attempts, I still indulged in greasy food yesterday. I still felt I needed a reward for all my accomplishments. And that reward still had to be "unhealthy" for me. For some reason, chicken breast and veggies didn't feel like a reward.

So why didn't I pick up the book? Well, I guess because the pages aren't easy to chew and digest? I've got True Blood to watch tonight, so I'm going to refrain from picking up on Edward's life until I've tackled the garage. Soon Edward, soon.

I have to say though, that many hours after eating, I did hit the gym. Nothing says at least I'm aware of my actions like a 60-minute workout at 2 am while most people are falling into a drunken Saturday night sleep.

I just might spend the rest of today in lazy daisy mode. Chatting with Chicago, who is woefully techno-challenged it seems in regards to cell phones and IM. How endearing. All food is cooked for the week, and as the Red Sox are going to win today's 16-run slaughter game, I feel I can do a bit of writing on the novel. And Chatham just reminded me, he'd like to play frisbee, providing the rain has stopped.

Eau de wet canine anyone?

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
