Oh my word – technology was NOT my friend this past week! At work we changed our phone/internet provider & on Monday we discovered that the fax line wasn’t working. Then I figured out that the postage meter wasn’t working. Then I figured out that the copier would no longer email scanned documents. Additionally, the battery went bad on the burglar alarm. Fortunately, everything except the copier has been resolved. I can’t wait to see what will happen this week!

We put up our Christmas tree last week, but our dining room table still looks like this. I wonder if it will still all be there until spring? Perhaps I should I schedule a dinner party to give me a little nudge?

Another edition of The Bug Parking Badly. I don’t know why I bother to pull through to the next space in parking lots – I either look like this or I leave the nose of my car poking out into the aisle. Fortunately there were plenty of empty spaces around me so that people could avoid my mess.

I’ve been trying to drink peppermint tea to see if it will mitigate my sweet tooth. Well, I tried it this one day. All of the other days I ate something sweet instead. Baby steps?

Got a haircut! It had been a while. My cousin’s daughter is in cosmetology school. I think she did a great job! We talked about how I’m going to try to let my gray grow out to see what it looks like. Alternatively I might be right back in her chair as soon as she finishes the color module in class. Ha!

I had the best lunch! Homemade guacamole (just avocado & a bit of Rotel), hard-boiled egg, and spinach on toasted pita. YUM.
I might have squealed a bit – the author of my favorite comic strip (Bloom County) liked the picture of Opus that I posted last week.

We got to turn to a new month on our Otis Unleashed calendar.

On my way to a workshop about climate change. The character in my book was describing the experience of drinking tea made in a pot that usually had coffee in it. Blech!
At the workshop we walked outside, then came in and drew pictures that depicted how we felt about it. My picture is of me looking down to see the pine sprig that I found (that’s my boot & the bottom of my dress). I was VERY impressed by the 12 year old son of the local imam who was there – so articulate. I took a picture of his drawing. It says “A WORLD TO LOSE.” I was also really impressed with our vegetarian lunch (from here) – it was delicious.
Here’s hoping that this week technology is my friend. Also that I drink peppermint tea more than once. What are your exciting plans?
