Nala's Mommy
I live a quiet, peaceful life, and that's the way I want it to be. I have a precious cat who appeared at my doorstep in the middle of the night crying when she was a tiny kitten, and I kept her, naming her Nala. My life's dream is to retire in a little log cabin, way out in the forest, far away from all humans. Just me and my kitties, bunnies, birdies and my own garden and sewing machine and computer. The only place I'd go would be to the library or to the creek nearby to catch frogs.

My Time Off

I don't feel bad saying that I am enjoying my time off. I'm unemployed again. And I am liking it. 

School has been great too! We're almost done with this semester. So I'm one more class closer to attaining my AA in Advertising and Graphic Design. All I need to finish… Read full post »

Long Time

For so long I haven't posted, guess I've been too busy to write. Seriously, even though I'm not working at a job, I'm busy.

My job, well that awful place where I was trying to work, said that they were "downsizing" my job. So I'm no longer there. It hasn't been… Read full post »

Work And Stuff

I slept in today. At about 9 I got up, because my kid (kitty) was bored. She gets bored when I'm not up and about. As I type this I'm lying on a fluffy rug on the floor of my apartment with the keyboard  sort of in my lap, and my… Read full post »

A Lazy Day

 Wow I cannot believe what a lazy day it is for me today. I mean all I want to do is sleep in, browse Facebook and do absolutely nothing. I've been re-arranging my pictures on my Facbook album area. But my Internet keeps telling me that the servers won't understand my… Read full post »

Good Bye Summer

The temperature’s starting to get lower, and I’m so happy about that. Because the weather here has been in the 90′s for months. I can now fall asleep in my place without having to sleep with the air conditioner on. And I can feel comfortable. The Fall is here almost. Around… Read full post »

Plugging Along

Well I'm neglecting my blog, but that's ok. I've been busy.

Work has been picking up at the County. We are all supposed to be hired on full-time permanent in January. Since the County has decided to extend our project, they like our work. I hope this means that we'll have… Read full post »

June Is Here

June is here, and with it comes the June "gloom" that's prevelant here in south California. Not only does it get gloomy but the weather gets sort of hot. 

I've been looking online for  new used car. I'd totally love to buy a Honda Fit. I think I'm going to call… Read full post »

I’ve been working, with lots of overtime. We’ve gone back to the County project and it’s so busy there. I don’t blog much now, I’m too busy even on weekends. Today is Saturday, my “do nothing or do whatever” day.

It’s been a bit chilly for the last few/… Read full post »

The Letter

This last Monday I finally received the letter that I was hoping to receive. It came earlier than I thought it would. It’s the letter from my company telling me when I go back to work. February 20th is the estimated start date. It may be earlier than that. I’m excited… Read full post »

Been doing a bit of thrift store shopping after the holidays. I have a new favorite store now. It's called Savers

Today there was a huge, and I mean huge sale there today. I found these totally cute salt and pepper shakers.

At this time of year I wish that I had a scanner. And not jut a scanner but a new iMac, printer to go with it. And also some nicer furniture. Not to mention all of the sewing supplies that I lost in the recent move. The list… Read full post »

At This Time of Year

As I sit here writing this post, listening to the cute sound of my kitty crunching her food I think. I'm safe here in my little place. And at this time of year I sometimes use the long days to clean and get ready for the coming year. I do

I Think I'm An Atheist

It's almost Christmas, and I cannot help but remembering where I was and what I was doing this time last year. I'd just moved back to the area from the high Sierras. And I was not a very "happy camper". But I'd also gotten word that I'd… Read full post »

Places Unseen

I finally made it up north to get my belongings out of storage. I did it in 3 days! I left Monday morning around 11 and returned Wednesday night here, around 5 p.m. Here is my apartment complex, before I left.

Round trip the miles were 1,002. And don't even ask… Read full post »

A Road Trip Up North

Lately as usual, I'm reading a lot of novels. This is a really good one. I picked it up at the "help yourself" shelf at the library where I volunteer. And I am glad that I did, it's a very good book. IT's called Taming It Down.taming

Cave Dwelling

A few mornings ago, I woke after a really interesting dream. My friend Tiana was in it too. In my dream I was going to visit her. She lived in a nicely decorated cave. To get there I had to drive through a beautiful foresty, lush green area, with a meandering… Read full post »

I am going to start posting the pictures that I draw, here is one, no two.

I realize now that I am so busy lately, this blog writing has become, well, less interesting than it was before. Anyway, maybe I should just use it to post my art. It’s better than/

Among Others


This is a book I just finished reading, Among Others. It's on the Fantasy group. I loved it too. I think I'll get the rest of this author's novels.

School has been a bit trying. In that I have never designed an entire website from Photoshop. I thought it would be easier. IRead full post »

I had a busy busy week this last week.

First I want to say that I had my other blog (Google Blogger) blocked for a couple of weeks, because I had an online stalker. Yes, I am so popular that a man stalked me. For about oh, 2 weeks. I really don't

Today as I left my apartment, going downstairs to check my mail, there was the letter I was waiting for, from EDD. I won my appeal. This was the 3rd appeal hearing I've had to sit and wait through. I knew that I didn't loose though. I knew because I checkedRead full post »

I think I've already written about my new website I'm creating in school. But if not here are some of the graphics I am using. I always change my mind later and feel like tearing the page down and starting all over. But so far… Read full post »

Those Chinitas

Today I had my EDD appeal hearing. The word "chinitas" is the Spanish word meaning "Asians or Chinese". I learned it from my Mexican friends from Mexico. It's also slang for the kind of people who are pretty much the dishonest Asians who come over here expecting us to adhere to… Read full post »
