    The curtain pattern is called toile. I was pretty close. It features people or landscape scenes. My capris pattern is palm leaves.

    It was a rather slow day at the Lazy Dazz Ranch. No curtain work. I did work on the scanner tho! And that was pretty big. I practised scanning. I have these stories bro wrote about me in school.

    He put himself as the hero having to save me, the lil sister. He switched the roles around. I wonder if that's a psychological hint. That he fantasized being the eldest? He brings comic books into play and even now he likes comic books. And he's kept all his old books.

    So, i plan to post his story on my high school site. Because lots knew my bro who became very smart. But they can see his dorky beginnings and how he related to me. Who did not grow up to be smart.

    And yes it still bothers me. It rankles. It chaps my hide. Why couldn't ive been the smart one? I would've liked an illustrious career too. My bro became some computer tech guy. He traveled the World on an expense account. He went to israel, China, Korea etc. I became a secretary. Taking orders from others.

    It's the math gene. That's what i lacked. I could not comprehend math. Chemistry. Biology. That obscure knowledge. I can't do it.

    It rankles because we come from the same parents. Why couldn't i get some of my dad's smarts? You know what i got from him? His nearsightedness. And i got it much worse than him. He was always able to drive.

    Sigh. Kicks rocks. So that's how it's going to be, huh? One of these days, Alice! To the moon!

    Overhand overcast greetings from Fog Central, a 401k rated Q Town in Silicon, ooh watch it, slippery! Valley, U.S.A. at least it's not cold. But makes me want to sleep. I had high hopes of working on changing the curtains but that's going to be a few days affair. If i can summon up the energy, i want to clear the space. Ive got gfs mags in piles shoved up against the wall. Plus my device charging area is on the floor. That all needs to go. That will be Phase One.

    Maybe ill work on the scanner. Got the new batteries at hand. I need to practice making scans.

    Read an article projecting 6 mos hence. How things might be. Can you say, virtual? No group outings like baseball spectators. Shopping, symphony etc virtual. Prob masks for foreseeable future. No handshakes, hugs. It will be very strange.

    They prob want Starbucks to return. But geez, hasn't this taught folks they can make their own? You can buy Starbucks in every shape and form. You can't drink Joe with a mask. Why not set up a Joe area and invite your pal over and vice versa. You can play enya. Put on sound cd of a barista grinding beans.

    Well time to corral my locks into some semblance of order. Ill try a different way with the claw clip. Diy videos look so simple ol.

    I didn't change out of the blue capris. Better not overeat. It has this delicate pattern that ive forgotten the name. It is a type of old fashioned wall paper. Must look it up. Etoile?

    Is it Sunday? Or Monday?

    See you on the other side of the production line.

    It's stuffy in here. Just turned on the fan. Im wearing the blue capris i had found. They were in the too tight bin. And im surprised they're still a lil tight. I have an identical pink one and it's loose. Same size, too.

    Mr x has women's soccer on.

    Slog went well and it was actually warm. Couldn't lay out long after. Not that warm. Nabe was working in yard moving garbage cans around.

    I saw an interesting idea. Biden has said he wants to have woman running mate. Someone floated the fascinating idea of what if he chose Michelle Obama?! And if by chance Biden past, Michelle would be prez! With hub as first gentleman. They were saying this could be a way Barack gets 8 more years.

    These capris are not comfy. Im going to have to change. I really hate zippers. It's elastic band all the way for me, baby.

    Holy frostbite falls, batman! Days starting out cold n chill. What else is new? Stuck my snout out the mailbox to ascertain the temp. It's not good. Think ill need a jac. i don't like flappy, jacky jacs. Gets in my way.

    So today mr x holds up newspaper heading. Mandatory masks come to San Mateo county. That's us. I knew it. It hasn't spread to bro, but i warned him to be ready.

    Net was on so i quickly took screenshots of my photo gallery on high school site. Im rearranging pics because they changed format. And i can't member what pics i have up. I like to do comparison pics. Like me in a certain pose juxtaposed with pic of my mom 30 years prior. Kind of cool. We have the same smile. Tho my mom was more effervescent and popular than i ever was.

    Mr x did yardwork before i was up. He's watching great American hero. William katt the main character. What's interesting is his mum is Barbara hale, della street on Perry Mason. And she sometimes guest stars on her son's show.

    I get to eat cake soon! Let her eat cake.

    Im having Atkins nutty fudge brownie. It's pretty good. Says 18 carbs, but 2gr net carbs. What does that mean? It's less than 18? Im saving the cake for slog days which is tomorrow.

    Mr x watching 2012 Olympic swimming. With Michael Phelps.

    As i predicted, now SF has mandatory mask wearage. We're the next county in line.

    Kind of warm tonight. That's nice. Watched more addams family dvd. I have the series. Addams or munsters? I do like the whackiness of both. I have some kind of munsters, maybe the movie they did. I didn't get the series because i had videotaped a lot. Which is who knows where? Well you know, don't you? You don't have random tapes lying around, do you? No, all my tapes are corralled in a few blue bins but I'm not rummaging thru all that just to find out.

    And i got a used vcr player ol. I set it up a long time ago but do you see me watching tapes? Hmm. That's a non project to not do. I mean, day after day, i never watch tapes. I should dump the tapes n player. That would be hard to do. The tapes, less so. They get moldy after awhile even though they're in closed plastic bins. Tapes are not ideal. I must agree, dvd are much better.

    I saw this art project someone did. She built a parent wall contraption. You insert a quarter and an arm comes out to pat you on the shoulder. Very clever. Got thousands of likes.

    Howdy doody! Had mr xs omelette and a clif bar. Is it time for a nap yet? Im sure it will be soon. It got a bit sunny which brightened up the room. I had pert near 3 weeks of mail to open. Started a new mauve tiny candle.

    Was reading in Spain kids are banned from going outside. Wow. That's severe. Said golf tournament might be first to open up, just no spectators. The mandatory mask wearing is now in Marin county, right across golden gate bridge. Our county prob next.

    The fauci doc said he wouldn't recommend hand shaking in the future. That's ok by me. Tho i have gotten used to it. Maybe we'll start nodding to each other.

    Im wearing the huge hair claw clip. I can't lean back. Ill go look ol any other possible way to wear it. 6" clip not good. 3" good. Unless you have very thick curly hair then huge might work.

    Think ill have a delectable icy chocolate ensure. Then go down for the 2 hour count. Z z z

    Friday dawns chill and overcast. Yuck. Glad im staying in. Mr x waited an hour to get into tjs. I had just put all my cafe seasoning paraphernalia away, but noted that, and asked if he wanted a decafe. He did. So i brought it all out again. Sugar, caramel macchiato dry creamer, snickers liquid creamer, vanilla honey almond milk.

    Was able to finally put in Amazon order. Getting more k pods. An 84 McCafe decafe and reg ones for me. Plus i picked up those tiny hooks for the necklaces.

    Im going to do desky. It's been too long. My eyes are crossed again so ill prob just get to opening the mail. Still, even that needs to get done.

    It's pizza Friday so mr x will be cooking up his famous round omelette.

    See you on the other side of some desky. Git er done, son!

    Im wearing new capris. They're some years old but were too small. Finally, i can wear them. They have a black background with teal and white. Resembles aztec designs. I was sure mr x would say that. But he said camouflage. Camouflage? Then he said maltese cross. What the heck is that? Ive heard of a maltese falcon. He did say they were beautiful. They are, that. Very thin yet feels plush. I love leggings.

    Slog went well and i stayed the 30 min course. It was 63• couldn't stay out on lounge too long. Cold.

    So now they're saying the virus was some lab experiment gone wrong in China? And they want some recompense from them? That's going to be hard to do.

    Thurs dawns totally overcast in my button upped town. What the? Were we magically spirited away to Frisco during the night? Charlie's angels is on. Timothy dalton just duked it out with farrah fawcett. She won.

    Today's not going to be the lush green spring temp of 73• ill be lucky to garner 60. Mr x suggests just skip it. I can't now. Can't keep stopping because of inclement weather. That's wimp behavior. And i took my anti wimp pill last night. Ill be ok.

    Bionic woman on now.

    Two of my pals have mentioned they've already received their stimulus checks. I haven't. Stimulate me, i entreat weakly.

    Got to pick my slog outfit. And clean sink.

    Enjoy your day! Just saw alert ny extended shut in thru may 15. That may spread.

    Im back. Having low carb slim fast and opened smoked gouda triscuits. Good but too salty. And im a salt fiend. Im always interested in trying new health hints. Like salt. That is not the best thing to overuse. And faux sugar. Got to watch that, too.

    So, my day was pretty productive. Just need to clean the kit sink tomorrow. Which will be a slog day. I think it'll be cooler. And gf said it could rain monday? No, no. We're not starting that again.

    I went thru more BlackBerry notes. Im doing 2018. I had written i decided to move in 2020. Hahaha! I don't know anymore. I have looked at places. But now, with this virus situation, I'd need a place with a freezer. Im not good moving. And i certainly don't know how to move myself. So maybe we'll have to stay here. It's certainly not bad. And we do have a freezer. And a backyard for me to slog.

    Gf regales me frequently about apt living. Slamming doors, parking turfs. I don't think i want to live in an apt. I had thought of renting a house. But then you're at the mercy of the landlord. We could end up having to move every 2 years. I can't do that. So at the moment moving is off the table. Ill just work cleaning this place and using up stuff.

    Flipped through a l.l.bean catalog. Nice but im not going thru that again. Their clothes never wear out. Never. It's Prep City. Preppy stuff.

amazing as it sounds, i passed the dmv vision test. i was quite apprehensive in days leading up to it. every nite religiously doing the eye exercises. straining, straining to see, imagine, the dinky little letters. when it came time to test, i didnt even falter! i guess i could see the shapes good enough to recognize. mr x came with me. we had a 2.5 hour wait. he started grumbling part way thru the wait.

other day we were at macs. tried their new ice mocha. yum!

then yesterday hung out with bro for 5.5 hrs. he had these dumb rebate cards to redeem and he didnt need anything. so we went to walgreens, 2 cvs, and a tjs. i caught up on my shopping. we hit a macs and i tried the caramel macchiato. even better than the mocha. we got along very well. we had been estranged a long time. but now i suppose i will eventually move closer to him. he lives in san jose. not a place id like to be. maybe i can move nearby on the coast. would like some fog weather.

so i passed my big hurdle. can relax now and get back to normal. have to hire a drywall guy.

just finished a great read. about uber rich ladies and the scam perpetrated against them. a good frothy read. hey, its fall i believe! got bottle of pumpkin spice latte by starbucks. so curious to taste it.

welcome to fall! time to bring out the sweaters.

finally got back here. we had a plumbing event. on labor day mr x noticed water running off front lawn. a water main had broke. a small 2" gush was gushing out. mr x called water company who turned off water. then i called our go to plumber. a solution was to replace pipe to house. however id been wanting to replace the pipes one day. we had no hot water at bathroom sink and cold faucet was dribbling out. i knew it was a matter of time. then. we didnt have hot or warm water in washer. only cold. thats why my wash would take hours. so i decided to kill all birds with one stone. i replaced all pipes with copper. it took a total of 5 days. we had no water for 3 days. first day we used wipey dypes. 2nd day mr x warmed water jugs in sun and we bathed with a gallon of water. i helped mr x wash his hair on back lawn. i viewed the experience like camping. its doable, but im not keen on it. 3 guys were here. all spoke spanish. so i decided to learn spanish on phone app. itd be nice to be able to converse with them.

im doing eye exercises. plan on taking vision test next week. its better not doing close work, which ive done my whole life. reading way too much. better to look at scenery. i think ill continue the eye exercises.

we had really hot temps, then other day first rain of the year! it began with a thousand lightening strikes. scary, and weird for this area. it started brush fire couple towns over. also monsciour ugly was caught on film sliding his grotesquely ugly body under a residents fence. # the outrage

id been watching lovely old films, then the plumbing debacle. i have to bring in a drywall guy to patch up the holes the plumber left. already found my guy thru yelp.

back to school time, but kids already back. when did that start? and no telethon with jerry lewis. he really wanted to hit 100.

its been super hot here. sf broke record. something like 106. we were 107. i was taking 3 showers a day. would sit outside at nite for air, started watching my dvd player. watched, british intelligence, with boris karloff. such an intimidating man. it was a ww1 flick in blk/wh. got bit by mosquitos. its the gift that keeps on giving. next nite sprayed off on.

got couple more weeks for eye exercises then have to take dmv vision test. strangely enough, the pinhole glasses im using seem to help. before i couldnt see without glasses without closing an eye. now im able to read my phone without glasses. of course, i return to glasses asap.

the smoke from oregon and calif fires drifted down here. could smell it slightly. today its a strange totally overcast day, but warm.

your friendly, pink weather girl.

hi izzy! i know what you mean. its fun to read new blogs. kind of like toothpaste. if nothing to read, ill read the tube. tube tops. i thought those were the dumbest things. then my wing went out once and i couldnt finagle a bra. so had to get the tubes. so easy to put on. i have them in colors, of course. fuchsia, lime, orange.

im writing on lappy, my laptop. too onerous to text on my phone.

its been a long, hot summer. i look forward to fall temps when i can don my beloved denim jackets.

izzy, that was interesting telling of what a nuclear stress test is. what is the nuclear part? the dye? it sounds so high tech. nuclear. do you glow now:)

i need to clean my fans. some arent openable. need some kind of thin bristle brush.

a few cities over madame ugly and her spawn were spotted. search partys are out since they came down where schools are. i noticed their looks didnt improve over the summer.

did i mention mr x found a dead rat on back lawn. thankfully he disposed of it. he said it was 17" with tail. # ick

see you in september!

my newest project is trying to buy glasses ol.

last nights movie was a doris day musical. she can really dance. and tap. that is an odd dance move. the guy was doing it on a staircase. itd be kind of neat to suddenly break into a tap dance.

then i started a cary grant and rosallnd russell movie.

i made up 5 packs of indonesian ramen. made oodles of noodles. heard ramen is hot commodity in prisons. ramen wth an egg on top. # breakfast is served

i should try on my cargo shorts again. itll probably be another year till i can wear them. i sure love the pockets. i used to be a tomboy back in my tomcat days. but i grew out of it. i get more favorable responses when i dress ladylike.

We had to replace the water pipe to our house, years ago, when we had our own house. BF and a friend did the work.
A root from a tree had punctured the pipe...so the tree was felled.
The lawn never recovered from the line that had to be dug into it to access the pipe.

I bet its nice to have working water again!

OMG, the smoke from the fires drifted into Colorado so thick that it allowed one to look directly at the sun without seeing spots when looking away!
We could barely make out the shapes of the mountains through the heavy smoke.
When the sun had set and the moon had risen, the moon looked much like the sun had looked...only the sky was dark!
There was also a fire near Steamboat Springs, Colorado that grew from 2 acres to 419 acres in just a few hours...that also contributed to our smoky air.
The elderly and people with health issues are being advised to stay indoors with the doors and windows closed.
Its really kinda scary to see that much smoke in the air!

I'm glad to hear that the eye exercises and the pinhole glasses are working for you! ...I should try something like that since my aging eyes are failing fast...but I am lazy lately...maybe at another time.
