Melissa Gianelloni sent me a surprise in the mail (two, really): Jelly Belly 50-flavor Gift Box, and a 5-color oil-based Sharpies fashion color set.
I tested the Sharpies on a glass jar I've saved my medicinal herb in. Two colors are great so far. I've tried the purple and the orange and they're exactly what I'd hoped for when I put them on my wishlist. Yay! So thank you to Melissa. And thank you to Chip for everything. Including the card.
The holidays are coming upon us so quickly this year. My tree's not up this year, tiny and old as it is, at least it looked lovely when Erica put it together. It's still in the storage unit. Ugh.
Did find an IHSS provider via my Craigslist ad. An attractive younger woman who lives within walking distance and is willing to cover any times that Raul needs off for his family time at religious holidays, such as now and Easter. Hopefully things will go smoothly with her not living here and coming to handle things three times a day.
On that note, I do have space available for any friend who might want to visit me for a chill Winter Solstice and New Year. The 24th-25th we could watch holiday movies galore and NYE we could be boring and do the countdown before beddie-bye. Mimosas for the evening. Or Xingu beer.
