Spring Rain Ramble

Good morning, friends! It is currently raining and very dark outside and it’s feeling a little gloomy in my living room right now. I do have a cat on my lap, though, so that helps, but I’m kind of wishing I could turn on another light to brighten up that last dark corner. It’s just so gray and the trees are still very bare and that makes it all the sadder, I think. Really, though, there is nothing sadder than naked branches against a steel gray sky.

I’m hanging out in my comfy chair, eating the overnight oaks that we’re still working on figuring out really. My husband has decided he likes his better without yogurt, but we still have a whole container of Greek yogurt in the fridge so I guess I’m left to eat it. This time we put cocoa powder in there and it turned out okay. I think I’d like a little more sweeter for mine, and the vanilla would help, but we forgot to grab some of that on Wednesday when we ran to Target. We forgot a lot of things when we went to Target. That happens when you don’t make a list. Lists are very important. Anyway, I think I like it well enough. There’s a version that uses half a banana for the sweetener instead of honey and I really want to try that one. That requires us to have bananas, though, so we’ll have to work on that.

Next week is Tekko and I’m pretty pumped about it. It’s supposed to be cold again, though, so there’s that. Not as cold as last year, I don’t think, but not as warm as the year before, which is disappointing. My cat just ran in with the purple mouse and her tail all poofy. I know it’s probably bad, but I love the poofy tail on cats. I feel less bad when they’re playing and get poofy tails because they’re so into it, but then sometimes I bang the trashcan while throwing things away and they freak out and I feel really bad. Pearl has left me, though, to investigate this mouse situation. I just pray that she doesn’t put it back in the water dish. It gets so gross.

Anyway, Tekko, this year I’m actually doing a real cosplay with a friend of mine and I’m pretty pumped about it. We’re going as Digimon Tamers and I get to be my favorite Digidestined ever. I have most of my costume set. I just need a to draw on one last detail to the shirt, fix the sleeves, and augment the shoes a little bit. I’m going to make a trip to the craft store on Monday. I also need belts for my leg but I have no idea what to do about those. Ah well, we’ll see. I think, as long as I have the gist of it, it’ll be fine. I looked everywhere for the right sunglasses and couldn’t find them and now I just do a quick Amazon search and there they are. I don’t know what’s happening anymore. Why do they do this to me?

Anyway, I think that’s enough of a ramble from me for now. We’ve got a busy weekend ahead of us, so you’ll hear all about that on Monday. In the mean time, have a lovely day, and a lovely weekend, my friends.
