Let’s Keep It Going!

I did some Googling and the black tetras are black Neon tetras. They’re pretty flashy for not having bright colors, which means I can really enjoy them without Lola feeling threatened by them.

Since my tank is mostly stocked now I went ahead and ordered some stuff for the boys. A new bed for Tejony, toys, treats, and a can of freeze dried brine shrimp for the fishes.

I have another bag nearly filled with donations and I’m hoping to finish filling it plus a second bag over the weekend. I’d also like to get some crafting done today but I dunno about that… Lol.

Busy Busy Tuesday

I had a really busy day Tuesday. The pups woke me up at 6am,so I got a whole 4 hours of sleep. Not a great start, but I saw my check came in, so I paid mom rent, and headed into town at 830 to get to the bank when it opened. I withdrew most of the remaining money, deposited about 2/3rds into my other account, and picked up my prescriptions. Amazingly they were actually ready so there was no wait.

From there I dropped off a couple bags of donations at Goodwill.

I paid all my bills, except the phone bills which I had cash for, and drove over to Verizon to find out they don’t open until 11am. Decided to drive over to the hospital and see about donating blood because that usually takes a while. I filled out the paperwork and the lady stuck me, and ten minutes later I was drinking my juice.

I grabbed a chicken sandwich at McDonald’s after that and drank lots of water. Then I went over to Verizon and paid my bills. I’m pretty sure the manager there was flirting with me. He was cute too. I went and put gas in the car next.

I went by Your Favorite Tattoo next because I wanted to ask a question about pricing on a piece of flash I saw when I was in there getting pierced last month. Found out it was affordable, and then this happened.

He’s on the front of my upper thigh and about the size of a deck of cards.

I was tattooed by Charlie G., who also happens to be an apprentice but he’s got a great light hand and his lines and shading are top notch.

I contacted him about adding some other characters to it over the next six months so I’m hoping he says yes. 🙂

After leaving Your Favorite Tattoo, I did some grocery shopping and went home.

AVIM, and Other Things

The craft thing at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum was kinda weird this year. Only two artists signed up, including myself, and the evening of, I was the only one to show up.

I did fairly well though and the octopus and owl stuffies I made sold pretty quickly. I didn’t sell all of them, but I did sell several. Kids loved them.

I ended up making I think it was $37 over my table fee which is pretty good for such a small event. I took that $37,and turned it into this :

There’s a pleco in there too somewhere – my mom bought me the fishies today. I’ve named the Oranda Alberta. 🙂

Yuba is still growing –  he and Tejon are unit into ponies. Kinda makes me wonder how big he’s going to get… Lol.

I bought a drop spindle and some fiber so I can learn to spin. I’ve only tried it a little but I think I’ll like it when I get the hang of it.

I haven’t been cleaning much the last week and a half because I killed my back moving a TV but I am trying to track down the parts we need to fix the furnace. The house hasn’t had heat in literally years and it gets freaking cold in winter.

Here’s a quick pic of some stuff.

My little Christmas tree and my super festive eyeball garland! And my super colorful curtains! Ignore the plastic bag and my shoes… Lol.

Christmas is Coming!

I’ve completely turned into one of those people. Its not even Thanksgiving yet and I’m itching to set up my little Christmas tree, with its tiny little ornaments, fake birds, and big fluffy bow on top. I’m ready to wrap the little crocheted tree skirt around its base, and plug in my single strand of lights after wrapping them around it. And I’m ready to start shopping, and wrapping my gifts to place under it.

I think I’ve got my mom’s Christmas gift figured out. I’m just hoping some of the components will go on sale soon (yes Black Friday / Cyber Monday, I’m looking at you!) and I can save a few bucks because it’s not an inexpensive gift I’m planning.

I had mom write me a check and mailed it off to the Antelope Valley Indian Museum so on December 2nd, I’ll be there selling my makes. I didn’t really make anything new and I actually donated a lot of my stock to thrift but it was stuff I didn’t feel amazing about and would have felt weird about selling.

I’m hoping to bring home $50 and I can put that towards Christmas shopping, but honestly the Antelope Valley Indian Museum is one of the places I like to support anyway so I’m not super concerned with heavy profiting there. I’m just glad to be able to help them out.

Adulting LOL

Yesterday was filled with adulting. I woke up at 6am, got dressed, put on a little makeup, and got Yuba ready to go out. I put on his thundershirt and his harness, and we got in the car. We drove to the vet and pretty soon my little boy was checked in for surgery. He was getting neutered.

I drove to the bank, pulled out money, and went to Home Depot and bought some garage hooks to temporarily hang up my ukes. Then I went to Dollar Tree and bought some nail polish.

I tried the 99¢ Only store but they don’t have nail polish and by them it was almost time for Guitar Center to open. I went in, bought a wall mount guitar hanger and then headed back towards Lancaster.

On the way, I stopped at Horizon Comics and looked to see if he had volume 3 of Paper Girls in yet. He didn’t, but I ended up buying two volumes of I Hate Fairyland instead.

From there I went to the beauty school and got my hair trimmed and sides shaved again. Then gas in the car, money into my other bank, and home.

Once home, I made some phone calls for my mom and watched a few episodes of Rick and Morty and paid some bills. Then it was time to go pick up Yubi.

Yubi heard my voice and came straight to me when they brought him out. My poor baby boy was so glad to see me. And he was out of  it enough that the ride home was uneventful for him.

After we got home, I did the dishes, and got something to eat. I also ordered a few things I needed from Amazon.

It was a long day, but I got a lot done. Today won’t be as long or busy, but I going to be out of the house for most of the evening.
