Annoying Neighbors Car Chases Cornish Rex Field Work heat Keeping Warm laughter Sandy spam

Heating Problem Fixed 11/02/2012

I went and got a heavy-duty 15 amp extension cord and exchanged it with the one  was using.  The Lasko heater is 15 amp.  This extension cord does not get hot, so I’m feeling much better about using it.  I’m cozy warm in my room and the breaker is not tripping anymore.

My “trash can always at the front door, car alarm going off all hours of the night, cursing screaming little kids, toys all over the street, outdoor living room loving, loud talking in the middle of the night,  annoying neighbors”  have moved out.  I am such a happy woman!   I already feel sorry for their new neighbors.  I’m hoping for a set of nice quiet neighbors with well-behaved kids, to move in next.

One of my clients emailed me that they did not want me to chase anything until further notice due to Sandy up and down the east coast.   Well, another client apparently doesn’t give a lovely, and sent me on two chases yesterday and two today.   I was in a highrise apartment building, in an elevator.   This is the sign posted. …

It thought it was so funny.  You couldn’t fit 21 people standing on top of each other triple stacked in this elevator.  What were they thinking?

Every night when I get home, I get greeted by Silly when  I get in.  I’m pretty sure that she knows the sound of my car.   For the first 5 minutes she is steady talking to me…probably cursing me out for being gone so long.  Then it’s a race upstairs to my bathroom where she patiently waits for me to come and turn the faucet on.  She is such a trip!!


Teri at Curlz and Swirlz….Life with Cornish Rex cats, and a Sphynx named Disco NoFurNo put up a Halloween video….she and her cats.  LOL  The Monster Mash….Curly Swirly Type.  Thanks for the giggle, Teri 🙂

I’m so very happy with WordPress.  It caught 53 spam comments and I didn’t even have to do anything.  I am going to check and see if all of them are truly spam….yep, they are spam.  Spell check is pretty awesome too.  Much better than Blogger.  I wish I would have made the switch a long time ago.

Cooking Food Matters laughter

Friday 11.11.2011

Looks like the temps will make it up to 51 today even though we have wind gusts between 15 and 29 mph.  The tree in the backyard is almost bare again.  I usually sweep up all the leaves into beyond my fence, but this time I will just leave them on the dirt.  Maybe the decomposed leaves will add to the little soil that I have.

My co-worker was sick yesterday so I worked  9 hours instead of my usual 6 during the  week.  So today, while I had the time, I cooked  some  meat for the next couple of days.  I still have kabocha and cauliflower that I cooked the other day.  Saturdays I work 11 hours, so there is not much time to cook and I sure don’t feel like it when I finally make it home.

This is diced up chicken with onions, garlic, ginger, pepper, sea salt, braggs aminos and home made taco seasoning.  I ended up with a nice brown gravy and will probably put it over some Miracle Noodles.

When I weighted myself this morning, I was down to 171.2 pounds…will I ever reach 160?  I sure hope so!!
One thing I’ve noticed is that the more weight I lose the less tolerant I am of cold.  Last night I was freezing at work and my feet were ice cold.  Time to get out the Bates Boots.  I’ll be damned if I’ll freeze my tootsies off tonight!

I hope that everyone has a great weekend.  Here’s a 

little something to put  smiles on your faces.
