Hello! It's just me, slacking at blogging again. Since we're only a whisper away from the fall season, I thought I'd feature a pic of the view from my window, and will try to update this picture weekly throughout fall. Won't it be interesting to see how the corn field and trees take on their fall colors?
So anyway, what's been happening? I started melting wax again today. A Rosegirls muffin in a blend of Ooey Gooey Caramel / Toffee Apple Crunch / Dunk My Donut was my official kickoff of fall scents. It's a lovely caramel apple scent with just a hint of spice and bakery. And it's pretty neat that today is cooler and quite fall-like. Our furnace even kicked on last night! Sunday we were miserable in 90 degree heat and high humidity. Thursday night we're down to 49 degrees and the furnace is on. lol
Christian Ponder (#9) played a chunk of the Raiders first preseason game last weekend. He did pretty good! Had a touchdown, but also an interception. This week the Raiders play the Vikings, in Minnesota. People are asking who I'm cheering for. I keep saying it would be funny if the Vikings lost and that most of the points came while Ponder was playing. Ha! Seriously though, I do want the Vikings to win. Ponder is still battling for the backup quarterback spot on the Raiders though, so I hope he does ok while he's in. I really don't like their starting quarterback. He strikes me as an arrogant dick.
Casey will hopefully get his car back today. The guy had told him "the better part of a week," so we'd been hoping it would be done Thursday. It's Friday afternoon now and still no word.
Ty is here, just hanging out and chitchatting. Well actually he's playing Mario 3D something or other on Casey's Wii U while I finish this post. We'll have Friday fish fry dinner from our local place after hubby gets home from work.
I was debating journaling vs. blogging again. I'd given journaling another try because I was excited about the idea of adding stickers and washi tapes to the daily entries. Yeeeeeeah, I did one day and that was it. I like the idea of handwritten journals because I always see so many neat little journal books and notebooks. And then the idea of adding stickers and tapes makes it more fun. But there is something about blogging that I like too. It's easy to include pictures, where in a regular journal it would be more difficult. Typing out things is so much faster and easier than my messy handwriting. And believe me, it's become MESSY over the years that I've been doing so much internet stuff. I think I could speak more freely about some things in a regular journal. I guess I just need to make it part of my routine, to write something in the notebook each night before I read, or something like that.
Do you journal? Do you also blog? Which do you prefer?
