On an early morning walk from my apartment to my parents’ house to do laundry, I turn right at the last stop light and find a pleasant surprise waiting for me. My creepy admirer who shops where I work is sitting in his car with his window down, and he spots me. 

Here I am in my holiest, stained, most comfortable baggy pullover sweatshirt with hood up and everything, hair down and un-brushed, all piled on top of nasty gray too-big sweat pants. I hoped like I didn’t give a shit, because not a single one could be found when I heard the guy pipe up and say, “Hey! Look who I found! Where you heading?”

I avoided eye contact, kept strolling along and barely grumbled “home,” loud enough for him to hear. In my mind I finished up with, “Not that it’s any of your business where I’m going.”

He regularly comes into work, I’ll run his transaction, and he’ll say “Hey gorgeous, how are you today?” Or, “You should smile, gorgeous!” “Where’s your name tag, aren’t you supposed to wear one?” 

I just…

Guys like that- I want to invite them to coffee, and then proceed to show them all the things they’re doing wrong; tell them how to really get a girl’s attention without being a pushy, demanding, controlling creep. I think that’s just how most guys are told/shown how to handle women (notice my word choice there) in American society. It really bothers me. 

If he comes in again, and there’s no one around/in line behind him, I may say something to him. I should say something to him.

One happy Bear Kitty. Chillin in my lap for almost an hour while I went through my recipes.

So far I’ve made nine newborn, and ten 0-3 months onesies.

And I feel like I’m getting good enough that I can comfortably sell some of these.

All have been made from old Ts, so they’re super comfy, soft, and environmentally sound.


It’s coming. Trying to soak in the green while it’s still here.

Adventures in sewing!
Made my first onesie out of an old shirt my sister was getting rid of. Pretty happy with the result.
Got the pattern from here.

Beautiful veggies from Momma Kimmy’s garden. Need to make zucchini bread lol.

The other day I opened the cupboard under the sink to get toilet paper- we were out, and instead I found my Shadow kitty snoozing in its place. Since the door doesn’t fully close, she can slide on in, and the door sways back shut after her. I LOLed when I first discovered her in her new spot. SO I did some rearranging and found a use for the first-thing-I-ever-knitted blob thing, and there. Instant Umbra safe spot. Now I’ll probably never see her because she loves it in there so much.

Productivity.

Pancakes for breakfast.
Dishes done.
Fridge cleaned and organized.
Pineapple cut.
Cat boxes changed.

It’s not even 11 yet.

Not being able to fall back asleep early in the morning can be a good thing every now and then. I’ll just have to take a nap this afternoon.

Read most of the day.

Listening to classical guitar being plucked in the next room.

Waiting to eat Zucchini Boats in a few minutes. 

Feeling little baby kicks every now and then.

Going on a walk after dinner.

It’s been a good one.
