Nothing much to report again.  Let me see...

It was ridiculously warm. 84 at least. Now they're saying 89 tomorrow, before a cold front comes through Thursday overnight.

I got a bag on ASOS. Anyone heard of Lavand? It's clearance, probably left over from summer. I love the colors, and it's a cute design without being too cutesy.  I won't use it as a purse. Usually going in to work I have my purse and my small lunch bag, but fairly often I have extra things. Like 2-liter soft drinks, or half and half for my morning tea. Or a clean tea mug. It's not glamorous and actually rather annoying to drag those in with a Walmart bag, or try to negotiate everything into the lunch bag. This is the perfect size for a 2-liter and lunch bag, and really no bigger. PLUS it has a top zip. Absolutely imperative, since when it storms it's usually when I'm walking the nearly quarter mile from my car. So that's nice. I won't be able to use it tomorrow, but I probably will Monday.

Boo-Hiss: My peace lilies seem to have died for lack of water while I was gone. :(

Yay!: My foresight in having a nice, yummy frozen pizza ready for when I got back.

Boo-Hiss: Extra-special crazy first day back at work.

Yay!: My continued foresight in leaving a remarkably clean house to come home to. It felt so good to walk in to an oasis at 11 at night instead of a scene of destruction.

Boo-Hiss: I have to wash my hair tonight. Wah.

Yay!: Finally discovering Cabin Pressure for the first time on my interminable flight home. (H/t [personal profile] litlover12!)  British accents, hilarious AND clean (so far), and very re-listen-able.

I nearly choked on my tea just now. I was finishing the cup when I heard a James Cagney impression in the middle of a work conversation a few cubicles down.

"You dirty rat!"

:D

* Obv. it's all about the intonation and delivery, not the words, when it comes to that particular time-worn impression. ;)

I feel so drained... it's been a busy week at work. I'm having a hard time thinking right now.

1. Getting a lot done at work. Sure beats a busy day that doesn't accomplish anything. That happens all too often.

2. An unexpected evening to myself. I watched Dick Van Dyke and continued to play with some embroidery. Flossing, this time. ;) Pictures after Christmas!

The weather is being interesting. It has gradually warmed up since last week's cold front (low 20s), so yesterday was 79 degrees. This morning started in the low 60s, with the pavement drenched from dew and a strong south wind.  It's still gusting, and 78 degrees.  The wind is supposed to continue for the next day and a half, although about midnight tonight it's supposed to change to the north.  It's forecast to be steady at 25-30 mph, gusting to 50 mph! Yikes!

Christmas week actually looks unusally cold.  Usually Christmas Day starts chilly (just under freezing), and with clear skies gets into the 50s or more.  This year it'll be a chance of rain and high only in the mid 40s.  Not only that, but the whole week following won't get above 60.  We're going to a college football bowl game on Saturday - that will be an event to bundle up for!

1. Getting lots of things done at work. It was a crazy done, but I got so much stuff (important stuff!) done.

2. Rain! Only .4" officially, but we only had .05" in all of November. The last significant rain we had was .9" on October 14.  60 days!

3. The Hobbit!

1. Christmas luncheon for work at the Reata in downtown Fort Worth. Yum!

2. A "spot award" at work. Yay!

3. Bro. No. 1 calling to invite me to go see the Hobbit on Friday night. I hadn't gotten an invitation from anyone else, and hadn't gotten my own group together, so I had no plans to go until then. Whoop!

4. Interesting "coincidence" last night. I was sort of thinking I needed to actually work out on the elliptical last evening, and knew I needed to stop sewing by 9:00 so I wouldn't be up too late. Of course I got into my sewing and was weakly succumbing to temptation to ignore the work out yet again. But the DVD ended exactly when I reached a major stopping point, and BOTH exactly at 9:00.  So I made lots of wry faces and hied myself obediently to the elliptical. :D

New default userpic!

The day has been CRAZY and I almost forgot to post.

1. Choir concert last night. It went well! I had a duet with another lady - "'Neath the Spell of Peaceful Night" - in the madrigal style. I'm told it sounded good. I was too uncertain to enjoy it! :p
2. I put together what turned out to be a super cute outfit. I wore: White snap-cowl collar sweater, light gray princess-seamed jumper dress, red patent belt, red tights, black and white glen plaid peep toe mary jane shoes, red brooch, and red beret. I got compliments all day! My newly-curled hair worked so well with the beret, too.
3. Signing and dating several documents at work 12/12/12. :D
