Waxing Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Uranus Retrograde
Still dark out

Yesterday was pretty productive. Worked on several different projects; got one polished and out. Headed off to Larchmont to the really, really good Staples. Got everything on my list, including the special folders for the grant material. That Staples has the best staff — they even found the refills for my favorite pen that I couldn’t find. The packet in which the pen comes calls the refill one thing, but none of the refills are so marked. Yet, if you look in a corner, there’s a teeny tiny number (totally different from the legible markings on either packet) that match.

Went next door to Mrs. Green’s, the organic store, and stocked up, and then to Trader Joe’s where, oh horrors, they only had ONE flavor of cat food, not three! I hope they haven’t stopped making it. I bought a few cans of the one, and I’ll head back next week, hoping it’s just a case of a late shipment. Because my cats do NOT eat the same thing every day. After three days, they’d be like, “You’re kidding, right? You’re feeding me THIS again? No!” and stalk off, noses and tails in the air. It wouldn’t hurt Iris to miss a few meals, but the other two really can’t at this point. My felines demand variety.

At Trader Joe’s, I also found my new favorite decadent delight, the dark Belgian chocolate crisps. They look like chocolate potato chips, but they’re out of chocolate. Oh, boy! Dangerous!

They also had a spiced apple bread mix. I’m not one for mixes too often, but it looked really good, so I picked one up. I noticed, standing in the checkout line that EVERY cart in line (about 20 of them) had several of those distinctively colored boxes! Too funny.

At this very moment, it’s mixed and in the oven.

Two tarot readings in the afternoon, then off to dinner at a friend’s, which was a ton of fun. So much fun that I stayed way too late and was surprised by the clock on the way home.

Up before the alarm this morning, which is good, since I have some Very Early Mornings coming up. Yoga, baking, at my desk before 7 AM.

“Lake Justice” is going very well.

I’ve got more errands this morning, one that can’t be done until this afternoon, another tarot client in between. The writing bag is almost packed for the weekend gig, and i leave around 7 AM tomorrow.

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Oh gawd. Now I want spiced apple bread.

    I have to ask – and you can tell me privately if you’d rather – the hockey photo? Who might that be? Note that I saw right past those cute witches. Hockey. It’s hockey! :))

    • I have photos all over the place from the players who were so kind and gracious during the writing of CLEAR THE SLOT and whenever I cover any hockey event. Will email you this particular name.

  2. I’m with Lori. SPICED APPLE BREAD!!!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. My cats prefer variety too, although Domino could do with skipping a few meals. I’m checking her for worms at the moment, oh joy.

    You have a good weekend too.

  4. Hmm, my kitties eat the same thing every day and abhor wet food. I hope they don’t get upset with me. *G* The Spiced Apple Bread sounds delicious! I have apples and am in the mood for muffins, so may be baking later. The witches are cute.
    Best wishes for a good and safe trip!

  5. I hope my Trader Joe’s carries that spiced apple bread! And Levi–he loves TJ’s cat food but yeah I’d better not try to feed him the same thing 3 days in a row. I get the wide-eyed incredulous glare. Have a wonderful trip, d:)
