Yum! – I lit up my gingerbread candle. The house smelled so good I had to buy a gingerbread muffin to satisfy my craving. Am I the only one who gains weight from candles? Holiday smells in the house are the best way to kick-start the season. Maybe I’ll bake. Maybe not. Too bad they don’t make chocolate-mocha candles. I should talk to Starbucks about that.
Switching it up – After living here for almost 12 years, the beloved husband and I switched bays in the garage. It took me a week to stop opening his garage door and climbing into his car but I’m getting there. Each bay as its advantages and I’m not sure which one I prefer. As the princess I always get first dibs. (Update: Yesterday I opened his door, climbed into my car and tried to back out with my door closed. I have a back-up camera and I thought it was broken. All it showed was this big white screen. Duh! I was going super slow so no damage was done.)
Fall finales? Really? – This year is the first time I noticed fall finales for TV shows. I hate finales. They are often cliff hangers or a somewhat bizarre episode. Seriously, do we need to do this twice a year?
Tickets anyone? – In our experience it’s not easy to buy on-line concert tickets. We have personally crashed a local venue site several times over the years. The beloved husband is not internet savvy when something goes kaphluey (that’s a technical term). Those security captchas sometimes get him. If the artist is popular there is the anxiety to get to the site at the time the tickets go on sale. Some artists sell out in minutes. We had another round of anxiety this week as we purchased tickets for Chris Isaak. We have seen him before so buying tickets again is a tribute to his talent. After 20 minutes of angst, we have great seats!
Who trains who? – It never fails. As soon as I am comfortably seated anywhere, Jake (our grumpy old cat) needs something. Sometimes the only thing he needs is for me to get up. My training for this cat failed miserably. Conversely, his training skills are excelled by no one. He is the only one who trumps the princess.
Happy birthday to the beloved husband.
