The Window

Our living room is starting to look a lot like Christmas, anyway 🙂 And it’s actually getting pretty cold out there, supposed to go down to 26 tonight – gasp!! Can it be?!? Cold?!? In December?!?! Our weather-people seem absolutely befuddled by this weather – how dare it be *COLD* in December???? I just don’t get them sometimes…..huhlooooo!!! Not everyone likes it to be 85 degrees outside every day of the year……….

In other news….my camera…..MY camera had been broken for a while now…the digital camera, that is. It turned on and I could review pictures on the memory card, but the viewfinder was completely blank when I would try to take a picture…..rather than messing around with it, trying to get it fixed and putting out way to much money…..I tried to find myself a new one…..I hate new cameras. They are too small, I want a camera that’s big enough for me to hold in my hand…..if I have to hold it with my fingertips, I’m not happy. So I resorted to eBay and I found MY camera and won the auction for $63…..made me happy 🙂

Anyway, it arrived today and I got a better picture of my little tree in the living room window 🙂 And, yeah….that box on the chair there is the box the camera came in……..

Am I the only one that finds “The Island of Misfit Toys” disturbing?


Mom and Dad came over for dinner tonight….I made a chicken with some stuffing and asparagus… was really good and I have a fair amount of chicken breast left so I’m gonna whip up some chicken salad to take to work tomorrow……

My mom couldn’t get over my little tree – lol 🙂 I mean we both thought it was cute when we saw it yesterday but I actually strung some lights and garland on it and put some little mini decorations on it and it looks really nice! And from the street, my window looks so festive!!!

Harry Potter anyone? I could watch Prisoner of Azkaban forever…..and pretty much have….I put it on at 5 and pretty much just left it go…..but now I’m having me time and I’m still watching it…………

A tree!!

I got a tree today!  Well, sort of……..I wasn’t actually going to get a tree at all for the apartment since we’ll be up the mountains this year for Christmas, but I went to Lowe’s with my mom today to look for a space heater for my sister……and they had some gorgeous poinsettia and a “tree” that made me smile…’s actually a house plant called an island pine 🙂  Smells like a live tree, but it’s potted – whoo-hoo!  It’s about 4 ft. tall so I threw it in the window and put some lights and stuff on it and it looks pretty nice 🙂


December?, originally uploaded by lepprdqueen.

I hate this weather…’s been too warm for like two weeks… should not be 67degrees on December 1st!! It just makes me grumpy and achy……

I wound up staying home from work yesterday….I just had such a headache when I went to sleep on Wednesday, and it seemed like it was worse when I woke up so I called out…..and since Brittany woke up feeling a little off, we both hung out for a long time……..

My headache finally went away and I spent a little time decorating the windows….I had them open and was sweating my ass off……and was very tempted to turn on the AC, but resisted…….

This is actually the first time in a very long time that i’ve decorated for the holidays….my mom pretty much did everything there last year before I had a chance to say “Bah Humbug” and at the old house, I just didn’t care…..I was disgusted with the house and the neighborhood and figured since we had Christmas up the mountains anyway, why bother?

But now I’ve got my own windows again and my own decorations and a decent neigborhood and a place to live that makes me happy………not sure where I’m going to put the stuff when I take it down, but I don’ really care, either…………..
