*The fire hydrants are orange!
*Weather is about the same...but somehow spring?
*Tanya Harding Was Here
*No job yet....
Later, ate some milk chocolate with toffee and almonds that was sooooooo good. So creamy and sweet and perfect. Let me tell you, when you don’t eat that stuff for a long time, it’s seriously mind-blowing when you do!
Ate chocolate again today (but it was on sale!!!!).
Does Holland have a single color for all of their hydrants? Do most cities? And if so, why??
Was very, very glad to finally get home and get warm and dry, throw everything in the washer, and put some sweet potatoes in the oven. Am eating a ton of sweet potatoes lately. Very cozy and warm food! (And orange!)
This appears to be the beginning of spring; hard to tell due to weather not really changing much except becoming a bit rainier, but there are crocus all over the place that emerged soon after the snow from a couple of weeks ago. I thought they looked pretty in the rain, but after my incident, I must say I prefer them all cheerful and happy in the sunshine!
Spent the day cleaning and trimming hair (don't ask--it's pretty bad) and getting some sunshine.
The Olympics are finishing today and there was a documentary on Nancy Kerrigan and Tanya Harding this evening, and as I watched it, I realized that Tanya Harding is from the Portland Oregon! And! She practiced at a mall near my house! It’s the Lloyd Center Mall! Small world moment!
Have figured out the problem with everything: I live just off of Failing Street! Failing! How can I find a job when I’m constantly being told I’m failing?!?!? Seriously, who names a street that?
I could use it for the title of my first song for the Serious Bummer band--"I'm living on Failing Street" sounds like a hit, don't you think?
Wednesday, February 26: Daffodils are blooming now, and the rosebushes are waking up, unfurling little red-green leaves. Have been seeing hummingbirds and hearing lots of bird song. So, spring is here--and it's heading your way next!!!!! Really!!!!!!!!!!
I'm trying to be patient and not freak out. Also doing lots of writing, and it always helps me to have a creative outlet at any time, but especially when I’m stressed. I’m getting so much positive feedback about the blog, so thanks for that everyone! My friend Melanie suggested selling photos on-line, so I've been looking into that, and also working hard to submit some of the stuff I've been writing. It just all takes time! Patience! I've never been good at the patience thing.
I'm guessing that I'll still be here through March at least, if for no other reason than I need to figure out what to do next. I'll keep you posted! And thank you for your continued support!
And really, spring is coming soon! Hang in there!!! :)
