Busy Day for a Change. (heh)

Yeah, another busy day...

Sister Sue and I went to breakfast, which was nice for the purposes of visiting one another. But there was something 'wrong' with the food. First off, it was cold. We had German pancakes, but couldn't melt the butter on these, because they weren't hot when we got them (???). And my eggs tasted 'odd' to me.

Anyway, I won't go into the gory details, but both Sue and I had reactions. I think we should report it to the restaurant -- not as a complaint, but to let them know. But Sue was really against that idea...

Before breakfast we went to Freddies and I got my tea tree oil, which friend Theresa myhope had suggested for my abscess. I've used it, and it really seems to knock down the pain! I hope it helps in other ways, too. Thanks so much for the tip, Theresa! And for the birthday greetings, too!!! (I don't know how I missed mentioning you before!)

Sue had left her cell phone at home (!!!), so we had to go back for it. I didn't want to go to Costco and get separated and not be able to find her. (We phoned each other several times while there, by the way. Plus she phoned home about things she was getting. So it was a good thing we went to get it!)

After breakfast we went to Costco and did our shopping. I had to renew my membership, which is now up to $50. (yikes)

After that, we came home and I got out the heavy-duty cat carrier for Sue to take home to Candy. I also have her some chunks of sheet rock to use to make a barrier around it. And some old blankets. These are to be used for making a home for Tatters to stay in. Considering the cold weather, we really needed to get on it. So far he's not having anything to do with it, but I think in time he'll mark it and be fine going in there...

My afternoon was spent working on the new flash slideshow for the Home page of the festival website. It turned out really nice, I think! (Those interested can see it HERE, in Marilyn's mistressmarilyn blog. Cool, huh?)

I didn't know we could load flash into our actual blog entries at LiveJournal, so that's pretty nifty! I've made them and loaded them on my Profile page in the past, but what a surprise to add them in an entry.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, considering the fact that YouTube vids are actually flash. But the one I made is simply hosted at our website, rather than any online service, so...

You learn something new every day, I guess!

Tonight I went to June and Jim's and they gave me their presents, which included one of those pillows with arms for reading in bed, which I do all the time (a fluffy orange one that's adorable), new slippers and a cool bag for hauling all my stuff around in (among other things). Very nice!

And Charold sent home a HUGE box that was beautifully wrapped! It contained FIVE gorgeous long-stemmed votives (with candles).

By the way, while at breakfast, cousin Linda phoned to wish me a belated happy birthday.

And I got more messages here at LJ, too -- from both beckyo and skylightdance.

The bday goodness just keeps rolling my way! Many thanks, everyone.

I'm (finally) finishing up this entry at 3:00 a.m. -- so I really need to head to bed. We're planning on a manicure in the morning, and have our local Portland NaNo wrap-up party from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Life is really busy, as usual!
