I need a grey-and-rainy-day sort of icon. In lieu of that, I fall back upon Paco and his stick (I really miss that book. That's right, DC: I'm talking to you). It wasn't as if today was terrible; it was entirely adequate. Passable. Normal. And that's sort of the problem, but I don't have the energy or the emotional fortitude to delve too deeply. Let's just say I'm feeling - quite keenly - my lack of motivation and leave it at that.

Let's focus on the positive:

Nice early morning class, low attendance notwithstanding.

My shoulder, which flared up following a run on Saturday, is settling down.

Per the plan outlined in my last post, I made rösti with baked eggs for dinner, and it was delicious. Since I halved the recipe, I have leftover shredded potatoes. I suspect there will be potato crusted salmon fillet in my future.

Not dropping weight yet, still have a bit of a muffin top, and yet I feel fit and strong (less the wonky shoulder) and am carrying myself as such. So there.

I'm writing. Just a little, I admit, but that's better than not at all.

My sunshine and rainbows kitten. I've always had pets, and I've loved them all, but this one is something special.

Man, now I miss Blue Beetle too. :( It was pretty much the only DC book I would read - I'm usually a Marvel girl, but I was lured in by the promise of an awesome Hispanic character. (And then I ended up getting a whole bunch! It was awesome! And then it was cancelled!)

I love that little kitty.

oh gosh, you should post the recipe for both the rösti with baked eggs and the potato-crusted salmon filet. *drools*

and I'll see what I can do about a grey-and-rainy kind of mood/day icon. I'm on quite the icon making kick these days, so that should be fun! <3

Here's the rösti casserole with baked eggs. I don't yet have a recipe for the salmon, but I'll share when I do. :D

And you needn't feel beholden to making such an icon, but I'd be delighted if you want to do so! Your icons are always gorgeous.

*waves* Hello Kel! I don't know if it's a phone fluke or an LJay fluke but I can't seem to reply to your message in the pm system. Silly fluke, where ever you come from.

I did indeed get the book. And I've finished it. When the pms are working for me again, I'll send you my squee-age. The weather has been been VILE the last few days (I need a "rain, ohes noes" icon myself) and not condusive to going to local landmarks and taking pictures, so I was going to hold onto it until Friday at least in the hopes of getting one or two shots. I do have celrya's info for when I do sent it out. I will be sad to see Flat!Sophos go.

Stupid tatchy LJ system. If feel like emailing me directly, I'm at joustgal@optonline.net.

And I'm so glad you got the book and enjoyed. YAY! I'll get my butt in gear and let celyra know where Sophos is bound once she's done.

That kitten is adorable - though probably growing out of kittenhood at this point.

Today I acquired a couple of visually challenged kittens of my own. Both are males and they are seven months old. One has one good eye and the other is completely blind. I am not sure where the sighted one is, but the blind one has taken his stance in a corner across the room from me and seems to be relatively calm.

Oh, the one with a good eye is Jasper. He's a gray tabby. The blind one is currently called Brenden, but I think he needs a better name. He is gray with white paws and bib.
