Well, after griping about the lack of cool weather yesterday, I ended up having to get up at 3 a.m. and grab a blanket off the shelf because I was freezing.
And then I lay in bed and listened to my husband snoring loudly. Grrr! I’d tell him to roll over and he would obediently roll over, and I would almost fall asleep again, and then he’d flop back on his back and start snoring once more. So irritating!!!!
I have some music I like to listen to when I’m falling asleep. It’s the sound of rain, with delta waves, and I guess it’s supposed to help you stay asleep. But I frequently wake up to find that my headphones came unplugged from my iPod, and I just turn off my iPod and put it on my nightstand and go back to sleep. So I got the brilliant idea to buy some speakers into which to plug my iPod, and then I wouldn’t have to mess with headphones. And I was very pleased with myself until I got home and took the speaker thingie out of the box and found it didn’t have a power supply. I was about to stuff it back into the box and return it until I read the box more carefully. Power supply not included. And it can run off of batteries, which also are not included. So I guess I have to go buy a power supply. Boo.
I need to make a batch of cupcakes tonight. I’ve just got several weeks to make sure I have all the recipes down pat before I have to bake them for V’s baby shower. One of the recipes I’ve made before, so I’m not too worried about it. The other two, though, I haven’t. Red velvet with cream cheese frosting, and gingerbread with lemon hard sauce. Vegan cupcakes are not difficult, but the techniques are just a little different so I want to try them out in advance. I don’t think anyone at work will be too chuffed about having to taste test the cupcakes. 🙂
I got Emmylou a Rush tee shirt, and she looks freakin’ adorable in it. She’s starting to get used to wearing shirts or sweaters, although she still gives me the stink-eye when I put one on her.
And I almost came home with another dog this weekend. She was another black dachshund named Lucy. Very cute. But I don’t really want another dog. Definitely not until we’re back in the house, and probably not then either. One dog is enough. I’ll keep telling myself that, and I’ll make sure to stay away from PetSmart on the weekends.
