things of note

People are begging for a new blog. That's sweet.

I have so many in my head. You will not get those, at least until I am fully caffeinated. Until then, you will get this one.

Noteworthy events since my last blog:
  1. I wear boots. Not one day goes by when I am wearing boots that someone doesn't sing those boots are made for walking.... I like that.
  2. I want to re-paint my house. Again. This is not public knowledge.
  3. I have an herb garden. This means the last two weeks of freezing weather have consisted of my carrying for six potted plants like small children, bringing them out of the cold. I do not enjoy this. (bleak outlook for my future offspring)
  4. I have a space heater in my bedroom. I keep it on a baking pan because it makes me feel safer.
  5. I have been throwing away mail that was incorrectly delivered to me and was just informed on facebook that is a felony
  6. I have been planning to sell two bookcases worth of books but I am having emotional detachment issues. So the books are hidden behind my piano as a way to manage my withdrawl. But I still know they are there.
I will get back into blogging. That is a promise. If I am to be a writer, I must write (this is my self-help chant).

Such irony in #2. Welcome back.

you want to re-paint your house??? all of it? what colours?
i would have more to say but when i go to leave a comment i can't see the blog post, so i can't remember what i was going to say. dumb.

Thanks Karin! I appreciate it.

1. I repainted my condo 3 or so times in total living there 6 years...

2. I love lists.

and I don't know why people don't comment on my blog. mystery.

Get a kindle. Then you won't need bookcases.

Likewise. If I am to be a painter, I must paint. Glad to hear that you feel convicted!

And the wit has returned.

Yay for more Karin blogs! Keep up the self-help chant. Your fans demand it. ;)

5) At the office, we like to write "Not at this address" on the envelope and put it back in the outgoing mail. It's fun to see how many times it comes back.

5.5) Is it still a felony if it's obviously junk mail?

6) Totally get the emotional book detachment issues. I would suggest taking some to Bright Light Books in Casselberry. They'll give you store credit, and you can get more books. (But that defeats the purpose, doesn't it? :D)

there's a grammatical mistake in your blog.

You didn't capitalize the first letter of your sentence.

I agree with John. And also Karin.

PS – Is that a Southern withdrawl?

It's not nice to grumble about birthday gifts in a public forum. The giver could be reading....
