The Ciel Show

Friday, October 28, 2022

What, Friday already...?

Icy cold this morning, but afternoon should be in the 60sF which is warm enough for a kitty to hang out on the deck. Yesterday's snow was fun to watch, but it didn't stick around. In fact, it didn't stick to much of anything. Still, I won't be driving today before things warm up above freezing! It's 26 at the moment, near 7:30. ______________ Two hours later... sitting here watching the Great British Baking Show while sipping my coffee, and being stared at with big blue kitty eyes while I visit...

And now...

Call it Adnohr's Delight--It is snowing! I lAccording to weather maps, we are just on the edge of much more consequential snowfall a few miles west of here, where the mountains truly begin. My old high school chum who lives up there in Bailey CO will be telling me about it pretty soon! But here I'll be surprised if we get as much as an inch. I always like the first snow of the season.

Thursday creeping in...

Cold and grey this morning, after temps dipped toes in the 20s F overnight. Dawn came on slowly, blocked by a lot of cloud cover, and it's windy. I woke this morning around 6, and there was no hint of day except where the clouds were a bit ragged at the hem. I got up and first thing turned up the thermostat, going slowly, just to the point where I hear the furnace gasp into action. It's warm in here now, a couple of hours later. Pixiechops was meowing softly but persistantly, to get my... Sign in to see full entry.

Sleepy Tuesday

Cold morning, starting in the high 20s, and predicted not to reach 60F today. I have heard whispers about possible snow by Thursday! I've turned the heat up, aiming for mid-60s in the house. The pair o' 'keets are not fluffed up, but I'm sure they won't mind a little more warmth in their world. Come Halloween, while slightly warmer, kids are going to be having to wear coats over their costumes for evening shenanigans. That was always so disappointing when I was a kid. The clever ones, of course,... Sign in to see full entry.

The results are in:

Today was a better day than Saturday at the event, I am glad to report. It was a quiet morning again, but in the afternoon--which only rant to 4pm, not 6--several more bears and a couple of the books were sold. Charlie did better than just paying for the booth, around $350--enough to take the edge off some bills. It wasn't like the first of the Curiosities & Oddities events when he made over $1000, but then that one happened just when we were coming out from behind our doors and risking the...

Saturday Blues

1'The winds are blowing in the cold front this morning, a little later than predicted, the low this morning at 5:30 being in the 50s. This time tomorrow it will be 30s. Yesterday's event, the Curiosities & Oddities Expo, was a very, very slow day for business, but great for conversations and meetings. The energy was not lively or enthusiastic or fun, and while Charlie's creations--Wasteland Bears, wood-burned decorated wands, dice, and a wooden sword, and his amazing weird sculptures, his book...

So... The new old laptop was a fail. However, they promised if I couldn't work with it, I could bring it back and apply the money to another. So--I did that today. And here I sit with a NEW new laptop, trying to find my way in, trying to make it mine. Like so many here, I do not love this process. It's Windows 11, for one thing, after my years of feeling quite content with W 10. It's a Gateway, the brand with the cow, another first for me! It has many capabilities, but I have not yet discovered... Sign in to see full entry.

Friday's gonna be busy!

Morning is showing just a little through the back sliding door, and I'm sitting here with the latest episode of The British Baking Show playing. At the moment they are attempting to make smores. (They've missed the concept, I fear...) There's another weekend event starting today, where Charlie will be with his post-apocalyptic bears. This means a couple of hours of set-up time this afternoon. It's the Curiosities & Oddities show, and it's here in the Springs, so it's a good show for him and for... Sign in to see full entry.

Wednesday again...

Another Bonus Day... Last night the temps were down in the 30s, but will be mid-70s this afternoon! And the sun is bright and clear. Pixiechops gets another day on the deck. I had a strange dream this morning before waking, about finding my truest self... can't describe it beyond that, the filaments still drifting through my mind are too wispy now, and I'm not sure I even achieved the goal, but woke feeling good about me. A while back, the one credit card I have been using for several years... Sign in to see full entry.

Here it comes...

Here comes Winter. Overnight, the first 30s of the season... and looking ahead, we have one more week with days above 70, and then... highs in the 40s, nights in December predicted in the teens. I predict all doors and windows shut tight day and night, and a certain cat no longer visiting the great Outside of the deck, but being more cuddlesome than ever! She has already been seeking warmth at night, insinuating herself under the bed-clothes, spooning against my legs. She kinda locks me in... Sign in to see full entry.
