Happy Bleppinโ€™ September

She blep. Hashtag blessed.

Anyway itโ€™s September. The heat is horrendousโ€ฆ as I write this, itโ€™s 91ยฐ outside, but 103ยฐ accounting for the humidity. And even though inside itโ€™s quite cool with the AC, I donโ€™t know if somehow it gets to me anywayโ€ฆ a sort ofโ€ฆ pressure from the heatโ€ฆ but I am so tired, I have headaches, I have so little energy to do anything (even stuff that interests me). I can barely draw or write, my chores are hard to finish. I just want to sleep until the heat lets up.

Then again, this has coincided with that minor but infuriating schedule change, which has my husband and I going to bed at 10:30pm (way too early for us) and getting up at 7:15am. Though really we donโ€™t fall asleep until midnight or close to. But we just canโ€™t get used to this change even though our schedule has moved only by a half hour. Something about it isnโ€™t โ€œrightโ€ and we are not adjusting well at all. So maybe thatโ€™s part of it.

Today I ordered some stuff for my only doll, Marzi. A little sailor dress, and tights, a ribbon, and shoes. But I remembered too late that the shoes will not fit, maybe they will but very tightlyโ€ฆ the thing with Marzi is that sheโ€™s a Gotz Happy Kidz doll, much prettier and more articulated than an AG doll but also just about an inch taller (and her feet are a smidge bigger) so generally clothes for AG dolls would fit well but shoes can be an issue. Iโ€™ll cross my fingers.

Iโ€™m writing a story on the side that features Marzi, so I wanted her to have a look that inspired me. Iโ€™ll post photos when the items arrive.

Thatโ€™s all Iโ€™ve got for you for now. Iโ€™m gonna try to take a nap as much as I hate to waste time doing so, and hope that my Advil kicks in.

๐Ÿฑ My Rosie Was Featured on The Crime Reel’s Petty Crime! ๐Ÿฑ

You may remember the keeper of my heart, my little Rosemary:

Well some weeks back I submitted her to my favorite YouTube crime channel, The Crime Reel, and today, she was featured! If you click below the video will start at the moment her feature begins.

If you enjoy true crime stories, I really recommend The Crime Reel. He posts interesting stories that I’ve often never heard of before, and what really sets the channel aside, is that he narrates them with so much empathy, truly humanizing the victims. I look forward to every new video.

My Best Girl ๐Ÿ’•

I love my Rosemary so deeply, so utterly and completely. She is the best cat I have ever had. She’s been sleeping with me lately, something that used to not be allowed, because she would wake us up by playing with the doors. Well, I immobilized the doors by using no less than FOUR doorstops on each. Happy us, happy Rosie. She cuddles with me all night.

I captured this photo of her today, when I found her for the first time in the little hidey-hole of the cat tree I got for the porch. Made me smile a whole lot!

Trying To Stay Cheerful ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒฅ๏ธ

Apologies, I meant to post all this yesterday but Iโ€™m still catching up. Yesterday I worked a ton on the overdue pages of my planner. I am still printing and gluing photos to it but I think Iโ€™ll be done with 2019 today!

Iโ€™ve slowly been catching up to things I wanted to accomplish, such as finishing my patch jacket, and my red overalls (and quite a few others, with more patches) as well as my journals. I watched Arthur for hours while working on it. Itโ€™s such a charming show.

I took the photo below yesterday during a bad storm. Rosie was with me for comfort (hers? mine? who knows). Rosie is missing an eye but she doesnโ€™t mind. Although she has no depth perception. Lol
