At work again... (Probably will always be at work when I post, being that I do not have a computer at home). I'm rather hungry. I finally did a wee bit of cooking this morning since moving into my new place. Brace yourselves here, I made a whopping two egg omelet. The only ingredients I had to put in the omelet were peas and cheese. It was good, though. Suppose anything with cheese is good.
I'm still trying to get my furniture situated in my apt. It's taking quite a while, to not only aesthetically get things right, but with functionality too... Can't have a table jutting out of the wall and a bookcase ready to tumble because of the thousand books stacked on it! I'll get finished one day.
So, I've discovered that I like The Office. It's such dry humor, but I really enjoy it. I only had four channels (with static) at my last apt., so the 50 or so channels that I have now are so deluxe. In any case, I think re-runs of The Office play sometimes, and I've been catching old episodes. I think this is the only sitcom I really watch.
I've kinda phased out of my liking for Antiques Road Show... perhaps now that I have a little more variety as to what's on TV...sitting there watching old people get their trinkets appraised just has lost it's charm to me. Sad, I know.
On my 'to-do' list this late fall/Christmas season is baking pies. I would like to get at least one pumpkin and one berry pie made in the next month. I've decided I also would like to get a tree (a tall one!), perhaps next weekend, and decorate it! I just love Christmas tree sawing! Every year my dad and I go the weekend after Thanksgiving. I've been the only loyal kid to go out with him year after year. My brother and sister faded out once they married.
My theme for my tree will be nests. I have allll these nests that I made last year out of Spanish moss, and these little bird eggs (varying in size) that I nestle into the nests. I then scatter them throughout the tree and rest them into the nooks and crannies of the pine branches. It looks quite natural and pretty.
I have this lovely dove made of birch that rests on the tip top of the tree. Strung here and there will be garland of little wooden apples. (This may sound tacky, but they are tiny, and almost resemble small wooden beads). They are red and I think this is why they 'work' with the birds and the tree itself...because red is a complimentary color of green and they just seem to fit together. You know, apples are a staple of a birds diet. (Especially penguins).
Hmm...I drank about 2-3 cups of joe this morning, and I've been to the throne a good 4-5 times since then! Coffee sure does run straight through you!
I have on a 'daring' outfit on this morning. I decided to bust out a skirt...and brown tights with a subtle diagonal zigzag weave/pattern. I then paired the two with my rusted brown ankle high boots. On top a brown corduroy blazer and a light tan colored shirt underneath. It works. I suppose the 'daring' aspect of the getup are the tights and boots... I guess any time I wear boots and they aren't under jeans or pants, I feel out on a limb somehow.
Did I mention that I'm hungry!?!
Staff lunch isn't for another 35 minutes, so my tummy will just have to growl on.
Last night I got a ring from Lynette. Looks like her, Neil, Nina and I will be jaunting out to a Michael W. Smith "Christmas Concert." If it weren't for the fact that it's his Christmas music, I don't think I would be going. But, I happen to really enjoy the Christmas albums that he has put out over the years. The orchestra pairing is so nice. I just keep thinking of his rendition of Jingle Bells...and the huge sleigh bells that sound at the start of the track on the cd. It's nice.... So, that's December 1st in Reading... Looking forward to the outing!
Well, I suppose that will be it for now. The throne is calling once more!
