Caturday, sweet Caturday

I woke up in a panic at around 6:30, then remembered with a grateful sigh that it was Caturday, and I had no place to be. Joy.

But eventually got up anyway to get a start on Cleaning All the Things. Managed to get some of them clean -- a little laundry, vacuuming, cat boxes, bed made, woot. Spent a few hours watching The Tudors and crocheting, ALMOST done with the Big Chenille Afghan, woot again. Ripped many CDs. Priced new Terabyte drives at CostCo. Went to a big Estate Sale that was mostly picked over, but OMG, the HOUSE. It was in the Camelback Mountain foothills, and I think we could have fit our house inside it at least twice (maybe even three times). Heck, the laundry room was bigger than our bedroom. There was even a gym and a movie room. All picked over and mostly empty.

Then to yummy Greek food for Barb's birthday celebration. Caturday rocks.

This time I stopped and got out of the truck to take some closeups with the sun on them:

I haven't seen one of these fellows at the pond near my office for a while:

Okay, it IS Caturday:

Only problem with ripping my library some more is a few discs that this machine won't read. Hmmm. And it stopping ripping Spinal Tap halfway through Cups and Cakes. I'll figure it out tomorrow...

I'm very close now. Of course, it's now 90 degrees down here, so I'm finishing it just in time for summer, but at least it'll be DONE!

I got it to read Lincoln by They Might Be Giants, and managed to skip over what appears to be the flawed Spinal Tap track, and ripped the rest, so I'll just download the missed track one of these days (or see if my other machine will read it).

I miss my orchid tree.

Is that a great blue heron? Or a sandhill crane?

Very very blue eyes.

I hate when I can't rip discs.

I'd love an orchid tree. SO pretty!

It's a Great Blue Heron. I don't think we get cranes here.

I have to plug in my old computer and see if they'll read there.

They're very pretty. I had to keep chopping mine down, as the previous owner had planted right under the power lines, so I tried to make it a bush.

Good luck with your computer and ripping the CD's.

Thanks. I'm making progress -- but I can't find my copy of The Houston Kid, my favorite Rodney Crowell album, and I've searched through every stack of CDs I own...

I think I'm missing one or two of mine, but I found some of the ones I'd forgotten about? Like my Renaissance cds.
Apr. 4th, 2011 03:27 am (UTC)
Yeah, I've done that, too! (Found ones I'd forgotten!)

Yes, one of them was, "Well, look, I got this from the library so I could copy it, and it's here in my collection."
Apr. 4th, 2011 04:39 am (UTC)
Ah, yeah, there's been a few of those, but I DID return them...

Fortunately, the only thing I ever lost was a book on monsters - which I found the following year, tucked into a cabinet (??), and returned.

Hugs and weekend joys.
