This Weekend

  • Took a long, lovely ride on my scooter. I love driving up and down the hills around here, the breeze and the sunshine feel really good, and the smells are incredible. Sometimes nice, sometimes icky, but always present. Down one long hill, there's a particular scent I would call Desert Sage, but that sounds too heavy. A light, warm, spicy odor. I also passed a guy pruning the rosemary hedges in front of a school, that is a heavenly smell.
  • Vacuumed up about three cats-worth of hair. It's been warm, they shed like fiends and hate being brushed, and I don't enjoy being scratched. So sucking up their fur is pretty much the only option.
  • Helped NSA go through some stuff, trying to figure out what he needs to take with, what can stay behind and what can be mailed later. Everything is just sort of cool and efficient now, but I was awake for two hours last night turning things over in my head.
  • Won a whole $2.00 in the lottery. A pretty piss-poor return on $6.00.
  • Had a couple of shots of Irish Cream in my evening chai. Very tasty and a nice warm feeling without the temptation to overdo it like other liquors might inspire. I still have the urge to get really, really stinkin' drunk though.

I LOVE running across sage on walks. Smells awesome! Same with rosemary.

Irish Cream in chai sounds delicious. I've been hitting my Crystal Light with vodka.

Stinkin drunk can work wonders occasionally. I got stinkin drunk once just after my FH (former husband) left a few months ago, and the next morning, I had a serene clarity and no urge to get drunk again.

Well, Yin, I do prefer your list to mine. My list sucks. Officially.


do you think you have it? said...

reading that made me want to go for a ride on a scooter!

I had to tell you that I just got a scooter. I would have liked to have tried the People 125 (that's yours, right?) but there weren't any dealers close. They really are fun.
