I’ve not been idle

Sorting out my mail, music, photos and my life. And yet, our room is still messy, I’m still lazy and I still don’t have things up to date.

Still, I’ve taken more photos, played more with the photography apps on my phone, I’ve went out with friends and with Johnny, and just took things easy. I am feeling much better than I was a week before.

I do believe the nice weather we’ve been having lately has improved my morale. Also, Marlanu’ has helped a lot. He’s been more affectionate lately and I do love what a good subject he is when it comes to random photograph

Marlanu’ overload

This cat has more pictures than I have, and he’s only 2 years old. I don’t even think my kids will have so many pictures. Heck, I think I’m over compensating for the fact I don’t have any picture of Snoopy (the dog we had to give away). But I can’t help it, he’s my fuzzball.

Quick update

It’s snowing. I’m on the morning shift at work. I didn’t finish the scarf I was working on and the cat just scratched me and it hurts like hell.

It’s very cold

We had the first snow of the season a few days ago. It was quite nice during night time since everything was covered in snow. The morning was disappointing since  the snow melted away and it was a depressing sight. That’s why winter in the city will never compare with winter at the country side.

I’m hoping this year I shall have a few days off for the holidays since last year I managed to work on every single holiday possible or known to man. But, I’ll know for sure on Monday. Till then, I shall watch movies (Bollywood, Korean and whatever I have saved on my hard drive) and knit.

Yup, I managed to finish a pink scarf for me. It’s really funny, since its pink as pink can be and all my winter clothes are dark colored. Of course Marlanu’ assisted me, making sure I won’t dare move until I finished the scarf. At least he kept me warm.

I don’t mind that the new scarf doesn’t go with anything, I was just practicing for the real deal: a gift for Johnny. I always wanted to get him something that he will like and appreciate. But I failed miserably each time. So, this year I’m going for handmade, the element of surprise and just enjoying holidays the two of us.

I wonder if I will have time to finish the scarf for John till the 6th of December, in time for St. Nicholas? Something tells me after work I will be staying up just to knit on it.

Another fun day…

And I’m sick!

I hate it when it happens and I hate it even more when I have to stay at home. Its not that I don’t appreciate the fact that I can be lazy all day long, the part where I have to go to the doctor is what I dislike. No, I’m not afraid of doctors, I just hate the long waits with other sick people. Its depressing.

I could complain more but its not worth it.

I got to stay in bed all day long, I played Pokemon, watched TV, slept, ate good food and just slacked around. I also had good company. Seriously, there is nothing better than a cat to keep you company when you’re sick.

Here’s Marlanu’ at his best.
