Pic of the Day 10.25.08

I took this on what was to me, yesterday, but was actually after midnight so, counts for today. :)

Aren’t degu piles cute. I want a few more to make the pile bigger. :)

Just a day.

Today could have been better, could have been worse. All in all, not bad. Played a lot of fable2. (They ripped me off. When I went into the spire for 10 years, they didn’t give me the profits and rent I should have earned. Oh well.)

Tried to participate in a live draft but yahoo seriously failed there. By the time I got in, my whole team was pretty much drafted.

Played some rockband 2 with chelsea and then watched a couple of jerichos. Really good acting. I’m sad it got canceled.

Not looking forward to last week of work…


Update

Aug 2009
25

I need to update more often.  Things have been sucking lately so I haven’t been.  Though, that’s not really an excuse since some people actually like to read that kind of stuff.

Filed for unemployment today.  I hope I’m not on it long.  It’s going to help, not sure how much yet, but hopefully enough.  The more this goes on,  (I know it’s only been one day officially without a job) the more I feel like I need to stop focusing on Columbia and cut my losses.  I love my house, but there are more jobs elsewhere.   And even though I’m applying in several places, there is mainly one I keep thinking about, the Twin Cities.

I think I’m actually missing them more and more.  I know that life would be difficult.  Cost of living is higher, have to sell the house, buy a new one, etc.  But, I don’t know…

At least I wouldn’t have to be too hot.  :)

Basically, I’m open to whatever the Universe is willing to give to me.  I’m actively working trying to open avenues for the Universe to toss something at me, I’m not layin’ on my butt.  :)  If your listening Universe, A winning Powerball would be nice…

It does seem like the Universe is setting something into motion.  Chelsea missed the signup date for the start of school so she gets to spend this “time off” that I have with me.  If I were to get a job that didn’t start for a few weeks or a month, and I was guaranteed, like in writing, we could theoretically go on a mini-vacation.  I would have my lump sump vacation money in hand from work, both of us would have time available, it just seems like the thing to do.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.  Me, I’m just hoping for something


Ugh.

Cleaning sucks.  I’m glad I’m done though.  Well until tomorrow.  I cleaned the degu cage, mopped the utility room, vacuumed the bedroom, hallway and office, and put up laundry.

It sounds like a lot, but I only had so much to do because I let myself get backlogged.  Oh well.  On track now.  Tomorrow, I just have the daily chores so that’s good.

Looking forward, and dreading my trip to Jeff City tomorrow for the health care town hall.  It should be interesting.  Now that I have a new perspective, it seems a whole lot more urgent.  And I know that if it doesn’t happen now, it’ll never happen.  At least not in our time.

Oh, and sending off the ol’ resume.  :)


Solstice

Dec 2009

Solstice is upon us.  I’ll later post a picture of what I got (I didn’t think to do that until *after* I was charging the camera), but for now, here is a list:

So without further ado, here is a link to the first round of pics I took with the camera.  (Well the ones that weren’t culled.)

Linky

And here are the five pictures culled from the second set of pics I took.

Inti and Supay, checking to see if the other one has food.

Old Nest

Winter Berries

Inti

Inti again.  Doesn’t he look a little intense there?  I think the clicking was freaking him out.  :)

Expect more pictures soon.


New Blog Design gets New Pics

Jul 2010

As promised here are some new pics to go with the new blog design.  I have a lot more pics than this, but this is what I have after doing HDR magic.

First four are free hand (no tripod) so may be a tad blurry…

And the next four are from July 4th weekend, using a table and a stick for a tripod :).


New Camera Setting!

So, I found a new setting on my camera that makes it easier to take HDR pics.  So without further ado, HDR Katy!

Packing

Oct 2010

I’ve started packing. Well let me rephrase that. I’ve started the packing of stuff I’m taking with me to MN.
Chelsea and I have been packing up the house for the last week or so.
But now its even more final.

I’m going to miss our friends. But even more than that, I’ll miss Chelsea. I know we’ve done this before, but it doesn’t make it fun.

I am looking forward to the new job though, that and I enjoy telling people that I work for American Public Media / Minnesota Public Radio.


Our bed.

Last night in our comfy bed. I can sleep anywhere (side effect of growing up in lots of foster homes) but it won’t be near as comfy as our air mattress.

And it won’t have my favorite person in the world in it…

I’m going to miss you terribly, Chelsea.


For Chelsea

Dec 2010

Not exactly our situation, but made me think of us:

Im loving living every single day
but sometimes I feel sore
I hope to find a little peace of mind
and I just want to know

chorus
and two can hear those tiny broken hearts
and what are we to be
where is home on the milkyway of stars
I dry my eyes again
in my dreams I’m not so far away from home
what am I in a world so far away from home
all my life, all the time so far away from home
without you I will be so far away from home

if we could make it through the darkest night
we have a brighter day (we have a brighter day)
the world I see beyond your pretty eyes makes me want to stay (you make me wanna stay)

chorus
and two can hear those tiny broken hearts
and what are we to be
where is home on the milkyway of stars
I dry my eyes again
in my dreams I’m not so far away from home
what am I in a world so far away from home
all my life, all the time so far away from home
without you I will be so far away from home

I count on you no matter what they say
cause love can find it’s time
I hope to be a part of you again
baby let us try

chorus

and two can hear those tiny broken hearts
and what are we to be (what are we to be)
where is home on the milkyway of stars (milkyway of stars)
I dry my eyes again (dry my eyes)
in my dreams I’m not so far away from home (far away from home)
what am I in a world so far away from home (far away)
all my life, all the time so far away from home (far away from home)
without you I will be so far away from home

in my dreams I’m not so far away from home
what am I in a world so far away from home
all my life, all the time so far away from home
without you I will be so far away from home
