Today is a good day.

It really has been, mostly, inspite of starting out wrong footed. My Jeeves alarm clock went foz-watts this morning- fortunately at the time I was supposed to get up.It turns out that the batteries I thought I recharged fully were out of juice due to the battery charger acting up. So clock is, I think, fixed and no need to return it or get another one.

When I got home I was spinning in circles from all the things I wanted to do today. So instead, I popped in the DVD for loosing weight via hypnosis. Oddly, it took an hour and a half out of my day but instead of putting me behind, I actually got almost everything I wanted to do done. Bank and post office will have to wait until Friday and Saturday, respectively, and I didn't get any work done on my quilt although I did get work done on Robert's.

I also got a nap- FTW!

And I fixed the dryer vent- again- because Shredder lives up to her name.

Exercises got done.

Dinner was herb crusted chicken with mushroom risotto and brussels sprouts (made with walnuts and raisins instead of pecans and cranberries because that's what I had in the house) and plain yogurt with blueberries for dessert. I did not have time to make the tofu spread I meant to but there's rice and brussels sprouts left over so I'll take that for lunch tomorrow and make the spread over the weekend. Um- where did I put the sprouts???

I also watched Briggadoon. Not something I really plan to keep. It was fun, once, but I'm not so thrilled with it.

I had planned to watch the video of stopping smoking as well but since I have to listen to a CD for 20 minutes every day to reinforce the hypnosis suggestion, I'll wait until I've got the weight loss firmly entrenched before I go making more changes. One thing at a time.

I think I may have mentioned that I plan to put a diamond paned window in the library. Almost everyone I contacted about a window to my dimensions wanted $2000 - $3000- except for Jay at Orca Glass. He says he can do it for under $600 and, while the shipping is ghastly, I can manage it.

I'm not asking if I should do this or not- I am doing it. But I am asking the f-list about curtains. Right now I have a white linen frill at the top and a half panel that covers the bottom. Privacy is not an issue (the window faces the forest and if there are any peeping tom deer out there they are welcome to watch me read all they want) and I don't want to cover up a window I'm having custom made. Should I just add side drapes to the frill? I have plenty of linen- I could put curtains up in most of Windsor Castle before I ran out- so I can do anything I think of. Should I remove the curtain all together and frame in the window with wood or stone? (Kind of liking the stone idea- but how to do it...) Suggestions requested!!

No S update )

Oh, yeah, I stopped smoking today. :) In the three weeks that it takes the nicotine monster to die, I am sure he will be pulling some sh*t out to try and make me feed him before he does die. I intend to chronicle these with humor as well as determination but I won't subject my general f-list to it. Anybody want in, just let me know- I'm starting a custom group for it.

Ok, restart

I've totally failed the last couple of days on several "S"es I've been working on so I'm picking myself up and starting over. Three weeks.
