it’s snowing again. ah well. it IS winter. i’m glad i don’t have to work today. i should get some gas in the car though…
yesteday i received my orangehead’s ashes. sad all over again… lit a candle.
first time receiving ashes. when it’s my time, she’s coming with me.

trying to stay busy. work has been steadier than in the past few weeks. got two new sets of scrubs: one in navy blue and the other in green apple. green apple (more like lime green….if i wear those to work, i’ll be named the freakin’ green hornet, they are brutal with the teasing.) so. i’ll exchange the set with carribean blue. love the pants (lots of pockets and very comfortable).

this past monday, i went for a 3 mile run during the evening, just as the sky was turning dark. the promenade was beautiful at night with the snow, very little people running and the gorgeous Verranzano bridge all lit up. it was a nice easy stress relieving run. Tues i hit the gym for cardio and weight training. Weds i hit the gym for more cardio work (eliptical and rowing machine) and Thurs (yesterday) i went to dance class. i wasn’t going to go because i was feeling a little sad. even went to bed, after getting home from work, at 11:30am. i usually get up at 4:15pm to be out the door an hour later. i like to give myself enough time since the subway isn’t always trustworthy. class was full. i love it when there is a nice full class. got my first bloody toenail. haven’t had one of those in probably 25 years. i’m really glad i pushed myself to go. i’m starting to feel taller. so. i’ll head to the gym today for more cardio and weight training. will call ahead to make sure they are actually open. if they aren’t (on account of the snow), i’ll go for a run. i hope to carry this schedule of working out for at least a month. this should kick start my discipline, get me in shape quicker, and keep me busy.
tuxedo cat is sitting at the window, watching the winter wonderland happening AGAIN. he just got a pinch of catnip. funny to watch him. he goes a little nutty and begins to chase his own tail as if it didn’t belong to him. he puts a smile on my face.
Broken Bells is up for a grammy for best alternative album. good for them. don’t really watch the grammies. not interested in the mainly mainstream’s listening habits.
almost time to get myself together for the gym and other errands i want to run today.

  1. Yup. Snow. Blech.

    This February will be five years since I lost Clueless. When I got his ashes I intended to ask the people who purchased my parent’s home if I could spread the ashes in the woods out back. When Clueless first came to my mother he was an inside/outside cat, and used to prowl those woods daily. When the time came, however, I couldn’t do it. I still have the ashes in a raku statue of a cat watching a mouse on a corner shelf of the living room (and yes, there is a votive candle on the shelf as well).
