Halloween Begins

Monday, September 28, 2015


The regular NBA season will be starting on October 27th. That can't come too soon for me. Watching pro football and basketball is when I am the happiest. But to get into the season a bit sooner here are some highlights of previous games of seasons long gone.

This morning I finally got about two hours sleep. My bout with weather related arthritis pain is slamming me against the wall again. Apparently we are supposed to get rain either today or tomorrow. Just fucking great. So I'm cutting this short. Y'all have a great weekend.

I'm Going to Catholic Hell . . . Again

Shit! How one little guy in a white dress and skull cap disrupt the internet is beyond me. I could not get on to do anything this morning. All the sheeple were skyping and tweeting to their hearts content. Yes, I was watching the live feed of the pope's speech, only for the first ten minutes. You see, Lord Vader Boehner made me laugh. He was blubbering like a cry baby. Blowing his nose. Then sticking that nasty handkerchief back in his coat pocket. EEEEEW! 

The pope could calm down the most rambunctious bunch of kids, just look what it did to Congress this morning. The pope put half the world, not to mention all those on Capital Hill to sleep this morning. That little man can really bore the living crap out of a person when he speaks. The only highlight that got me going was that it looked like Justice Ginsburg was flashing some knee at the pope during his speech. She quickly covered it up when the TV cam picked up on it. You Go Girl! Turn that man of the cloth on! Yeah!

While I Was Out

I've been hanging with the "Black Dog" as depression is called. Don't ask me why because I have no idea. It just happened. I got depressed. I folded inward, withdrew from everything and everyone and it only lasted a week. No big deal. I dealt with it and it didn't win in the long run. So that means I'm back, yay.
I think I really need a Pintervention, but maybe it's best I don't. The whole time I spent in the dumps, I was on Pinterest. Either I was making new boards or pinning. It was crazy. Like I was on crack. I couldn't get out of there. One good thing about it was that it's better than retail therapy. It helped me kick the black dog aside, and it didn't cost me a thing. Lucy was the only creature who was around me most of the time, besides David. She is such a nurturing little soul. She had such a worried look on her face. I wonder if she understood what I was going through.

While I was "out", the mama spider in our courtyard kicked the bucket. Yeah, she died. The one next to David's tool shed is still going strong. David keeps checking on her every morning to see if she's alive. Also, he bought an animal trap to catch the cats in the neighborhood in order to get them fixed and get them their shots. We found a vet that will do it for free because he knows we can't pay for all of them but we want to curb the cat population problem.
Well, I have a house to clean and laundry to wash so I'll be back tomorrow. Don't worry, the black dog is gone.

All Kinds Of Good Going On Here

Yesterday I was searching the web for my favorite petunia seeds for spring planting. I found them! SQUEEEEEE!!! Oh Yessiree!  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the beloved flowers. I have been hunting these for nearly a year now. For those of you that dearly love petunias, here is the Etsy shop address:
Celebrity Ice Mix  source
This shop has the Daddy mix, the Celebrity Ice mix, the African Orange, the Orchid Cascade. etc. I'm in 7th heaven! I know some of you are going to want to see this for your own eyes. So GO!! See!! I'll wait.
Over the weekend, David and I binge watched The Strain in order to catch up to this season. Which started in July and, of course, we neglected to check until it was too late. We then binge watched Z-Nation because it's been so fucking long since it was last on that we completely forgot what happened in the last season. Z-Nation starts up again this Friday with their new season.
So after two whole days of being glued to the TV watching wormy vampires and campy zombies, we celebrated our thirteenth wedding anniversary with David doing yard work and me doing housework. It was a pretty quiet Monday except for the big ass present David got me. Yes, he went and did it, even after I asked him not to the night before.

David went and got me a Keurig2.0 K450. *sigh* I told him to take it back because I had a perfectly good coffee maker still in use, which he refused. But hey, who am I kidding. This big bitch does everything you could ask for except cook, clean, and sex. It also comes with a four-cup carafe so I can bring it to my desk in the TV room and surf the web all day long. *wink wink*. I have given up my old coffee maker for this cool electronic "coffee bitch". Yeah, that's what I call her.
GOW under the eave of David's tool shed.
She's about 4 inches from back legs to front legs
All round we had a splendid weekend. I am still trying to get to everyone's blogs and read up on all your news so please bear with me if I'm late doing so. I mentioned the Golden Orb Weaver spider in our backyard that is living under the eave of David's tool shed. Well, she has a sister living in the courtyard just before you walk through the gate to the carport. They both have egg sacks under the eaves now.
This is the other GOW near the carport.
About the same size. She loves to eat wasps
I was looking up some information on this spider. They live for about a year. In the late summer, end of August to the beginning of September, they mate (the male is a tiny little fucker) and set up their egg sack in a protective area. They will soon die afterwards, both of the girls are still kickin right now.
Egg sack of GOW near carport it's about an inch in radius. 
Anywho, The eggs sit there until spring when it's just right for them to hatch. You can handle them (fuck no, not me) as the venom is very minute, and the fangs are also quite small, so there is little chance of being bitten. Cool huh?
