Day Five, Happy Happy Joy Joy

Today coming home from CostCo we saw an entire parade of classic old cars, mostly from the 20's and 30's, all decorated for Christmas with ribbons and glittery garlands, filled with folks in Santa hats. It was nifty and gave me great glee.

Second thing, Dragon happiness: Adopt one today!

I bred my grown up Autumn, Ametsuki, with one of my healers, Shiro Neko, and got only the second Winter I've seen (I only thought about it after seeing cornerofmadness's winter). Hee!

We were coming home from Costco because I talked Barb into buying the desk she wanted (and she convinced herself, as well); it's a very fine piece of furniture and was only about $600. We probably shouldn't have, but it's so very rare to find something Barb wants that much, I'm glad we did it.

I want the nice coat they have there - it's leather with bands of embroidery and the men's small fits really well. I haven't had a really good winter coat in a while; I had one, but it was a men's LARGE, and I grew out of it some while back. I wore it last year because it was so very cold, but now I'm not sure where it's gotten to, and while I did find a very nice coat at Last Chance, I found after I bought it that it needs mending (the back panel is split - no wonder it was such a smokin' deal).

Arm continues to hurt. I wasn't much help with moving the desk boxes (it comes in three rather large crates). I'm trying the e-cises from Pain Free, but the back stance kinda actually hurt my back. But I'll keep with it. I don't have anything that works for the arm blocks recommended in the book.

Now the rest of the brood:

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

Hurray for Barb's desk!

And I need to get you the measurements on the gorgeous NWT tags coat I got that's too small. (It's because I'm short-waisted, so my hips are in the wrong place, basically.) It's called a large, but it's not really, imo.

Here you go (I paid nowhere near the retail price, btw):

Now, of course, we have to clean up the bedroom and probably paint the wall... *g*

It looks like it's a big bigger than the size small one I have (that fits, but needs the mending!). The tough part I have is finding a coat that fits my body but has sleeves that don't dangle past my knuckles! Is it this one? I can't afford to pay you NOW, but I will consider it - as I said, I need a new one, but that's as much as the one at CostCo I like!

Yes, that's the one. It's gorgeous (and the retail price is legit, based on other Jones NY coats), and really well made. Damn my bizarre proportions! Anyway, let me know.

When I have money again! Next month, probably. :-)

Cool! And no prob. Want me to send it to you now so you can start wearing it?

If you trust me to be good for it, sure! :-)

Of course I do. :-) It won't go out 'til after Christmas, though. Just like your gifts. *sigh*

Well, that's all right. Your card came today - one of my favorite pictures! (It's my wallpaper at work, even!)

Really?! I had no idea you liked that shot so much. ::preens:: (Just like a peacock. *g*)

I do! That one and the close up of the lion, which I used at home for a while, too. Your animal pics are happy making! (There's that happiness!)

Was the lion shot someone else's? Because I've never really gotten a good lion closeup, sadly.

No, it's yours (I even saved it with your name - two of them, and I remember you noting how rare it was to get 'em!). I'll post it in my journal to remind you, since I can't insert an image in the comment. :-)

It must've been the time I got the lioness! (Those were the best I've managed so far.)

clicked and the desk sounds wonderful

It's very pretty, and definitely worth it - comparable desks online were over $1,000!

Once we get the room ready and it put up, then we'll post pictures!
