Photo Reel of New and Random Things!

So this is basically show and tell of new-ness.

First off is: One of these things is not like the other!

I was trying to find Mynx before leaving for work but I didn't see her under my bed of the couch or the side table. I checked my closets but she wasn't hiding in any of those, she wasn't in the tub or in the sink in the bathroom. I spun about and couldn't see her anywhere... but then I saw something. I looked at a spot on top of my fridge and saw an eye. Sure enough she was just chilling on top of the fridge like it was nobodies business!


This doesn't need a whole lot of explanation. I went outside, it was cold and I was too stubborn to go back up and grab a coat so after I went to the bank I stopped in at Bluenotes and found this light sweater. After I bought it I threw it on. I've never had so many people comment on a shirt! So many people liked it and the guy at BestBuy Mobile said it was a "conversation starter".

Next we have the Lovely Mynx:

Mynx is basically saying "so when do we get to sit out on the balcony?" As soon as those yahoos prep and pour the concrete! They're getting closer to my balcony but it will be some time yet before the concrete is poured and they get the new railing things up. I can't wait thought! I would still use the balcony in the winter!

This is just a taste-y salad I made:

Just some romaine lettuce and some cucumber and celery and tomatoes with some sun dried tomato dressing. It was very good and I'm tempted to make another... riiiiight now...

Something crazy new!

This is a VERY different look for me! I originally had a pair of frames I wanted to get but I lost the printout AND the store changed their website and they didn't have pictures of the frames they carried! I don't know how much time I spent trying on frames! I narrowed it down to 3 choices and sent a few pictures off to one of my friends. He thought the first pair was kind of girly, he really liked these ones and there was another pair that he said was awesome. I eventually went with these because I love the colours of the frames and the more I tried them on, the more I liked them! I've never worn such thick frames so they seem to strand out... but I don't think these will hurt my nose or ears as much. Also, I don't have pictures of these but it was a buy 1 get 1 free so I also have prescription sunglasses headed my way. The wait for the glasses is 10 days and the sunglasses will be about 3 or 4 weeks. I'm excited to have slightly better vision. I can't believe my prescription cost me about $315!! Madness! Here's a breakdown of the costs:

Regular glasses:
Frames - $169.95
Fancy lenses - $315.00
Anti reflective thing - $100
BOGO discount - ($227.47)
TOTAL - 357.48

Frames - $99.95
Lenses - $245.00
Backside anti reflective thing - $50.00
Silver mirror thing - $60.00
BOGO discount - ($227.48 )
TOTAL - $227.47

GRAND TOTAL - $548.95

Lets just focus on the fact I got 2 pairs of frames and lenses for essentially the price of one (sort of). Now I won't be blind on a sunny day (either wear non-prescription sunglasses or I just wear my regular glasses that offer little protection from the bright sun).

What do we have next... How about my new shower head!

Just call me Miss Do-It-Yourself! I bought this shower head and a few tools and I took the old shower head off (stubborn thing!) and put this one on without issue. Works very well although the first one to use the new shower head was Squee Very Happy

And to finish off this crazy photo reel...

OMG! It's a new toaster oven! It was on sale, $30 off regular price. Now I can have toast! Oh toast, it has been so long!!! It's nice to have a little more variety in the mornings Smile I really like toast and peanut butter. I can also reheat things in this and I can make a 12 inch pizza or possibly chicken fingers, small things like that. It doesn't seem to radiate too much heat when it's on. It also didn't take too long to make my toast Smile

Well, I think that's it for the photo reel. Now I'm going to make something to eat and settle down and watch Fringe.

Salad looks great and mention of toast has got me hungry now. Getting to breakfast time here. 6:06 a.m. .... guess I better go and get ready for work. Very Happy

The salad is my favorite. Like the deep pan and the tall salter/peppers. I have a piece of furniture like the one above and might paint it - maybe? Nice pictures by the way really enjoyed - thanks for sharing

Wow! Miss Do it Yourself!!! From cat photographer to power shopper to master chef to home improvement to showering the 'Squee' - she does it all!!!!

Speaking of showered Squees

Yes, she looks terrified but this is basically normal. Eve looks about 3 times worse with her big black orb eyes!

As for the salt and pepper grinders, I'm going to have those for ages! I barely use them so I won't have to refill them very often.

Poor cute Squee. Where is the mop? laugh. When is the Mynx getting her shower? laugh laugh

The mop isn't a mop right now since I cut her will rob ably be a while yet before I bathe Mynx and when I do I'll try and take some pics.

My thoughts too Standready. Poor squee, but yes, would be interesting to see Mynx being showered.
