Stealth Coffee

I'm involved with a group of pagans in Salt Lake City with an email list called UTAlternativeSpiritualitySubstituteSubstitute or UASS for short. Ever two weeks (or week or three weeks depending on everyone's mood) they get together and have coffee. They call it stealth coffee as a joke because another group had a bi-weekly coffee going and announced they were making it a secret so that some members of UASS couldn't show up. Yeah, whatever... that's the explanation though.

So, last night was Stealth Coffee night at The Greenhouse Effect (coffee and crepes mmmmm). Parker and I decided to attend in stealth style and didn't tell anyone we were going to drive down and be there. The looks on their faces when they saw us were priceless! It was wonderful to reconnect with my friends. I don't get to see them often enough and miss them terribly in between visits. I LOVE YOU GUYS! Last night was a blast.

Also, looks like I'm going to Heartland this year. *grin*

Valentine Gifts

Valentine GiftsThis is a picture of part of my Valentine's Day presents. Parker gave me eight roses, one for each year we've been together. I also got the teapot the roses are in with matching sugar bowl, cream pitcher, and a candle that looks like the sugar bowl. The kids gave me a mule with saddle bags that are salt and pepper shakers.

We got the screen up for the theater a couple of days ago so that's where I've been for the past couple of days just watching movies. The picture is just awesome, really bright, sharp, and clear. Soon we'll be getting DirecTV hooked up to it and people might not see me for a while. LOL! Actually I plan on having my laptop in there anyway.

Speaking of computers... Parker totally loves his new machine. He was busy Monday night and missed Heroes. It had been replaying Friday nights on Sci-Fi but it isn't on the schedule tonight so now he's sitting here watching it off of the NBC website on his computer. Yeppers, he is a happy camper.

Almost Finished

I'm almost finished with the redesign of The new splash page is up and I have the gallery changed over so now all we have left to do is change the wordpress blog over to the new design. Parker tells me it's not that big of a deal.

On the home front we are still waiting on the screen for the theater and we nearly have all the rooms switched around. I've just about decided that we just have way too much stuff. Parker got his new computer all set up and is really happy to no longer be going in slow motion on the old Win98. We've also decided that the formal dining room makes a much better den for the TV and games than it did a collection area for random stuff.

busy busy

Parker and I have been busy lately. Both on and off the internet. We are working on putting wordpress on WitchHaven and The PWA. I'm hoping adding blogs will infuse new life in both these. Interestingly enough they both turn TEN this year. I'm also converting my personal website over to wordpress. The blog has been up on there for almost a year already, just have to rework my art gallery and then put up my new design. I also went through and updated the designs on a few of my communities. I wanted to put up styles that had the tags listed on the side.

On the home front, we got our income tax refund and bought ourselves some new toys. Parker got a new computer and LCD since he elected not to do that when he won that style contest. I purchased an HD projector with an 8' screen to make us a nice home theater. This Christmas my mother gave me a 5 DVD surround sound system with an FM receiver for the theater so we are all set. Now we are moving everything around in the house to accommodate the theater. We decided the best place for the theater is the room where we have the computers set up so we're moving the computers to the living room and moving the TV from in there to the formal dining room we don't use.

Things are great. Everyone is in good health and spirits right now. A few months ago I resolved that I would ignore the Psycho Stalker so I'm not stressing over any of that bullshit anymore either. I'm sure she's still being obsessive about me and all that but I don't have to pay attention to it and ignorance really is bliss. Besides, my daughter is 18 now so the reason she claimed to start stalking me (gathering evidence against me for court) is now moot even though her husband owes so much in back child support he'll still be paying me years from now. So yeah, everything is peachy in my world right now.

Oh, and I also got bored with the red I've been putting on my hair for the last ten years so right now it's black again for a while. I like it but I'm sure I'll probably go back red again before the year is over. ;-)

I'll try to update more often.
