Cute pup, I would never have guessed by those pics that he'd been out on the lam for four months.



Happy maker... The work related "installation" I agreed to help with is done... Mostly they were getting rid of one section of it (I think the store wants some of the space back for their own stuff) and condensing it into the rest of the department, but it's still a huge one. Glad none of mine are that big, was a lot of work. But it was something different to do, a chance to make some extra money, and the rare opportunity to work with other employees I otherwise don't know and never see and only vaguely recognize from the meeting back in October.

I know, right? What a trooper!

I'm guessing the fact that he's so skittish made him avoid interacting with too many other animals, or getting into a bad situation. A few times he was on camera hanging out with a group of deer, but that's it as far as we know.

Dental work is not a happy maker, but I'm glad it's over. Was a little uneasy also over the idea of getting up close and personal mouth stuff done with that virus lurking out there, and of course it is now confirmed in this state today... but at least the appointment is done with before the virus starts showing up beyond the university.

They're predicting early cherry blossoms this year. One in the park near me bloomed super early.

Saw a small one in my area yesterday that was already open too. Been so mild this winter relatively speaking.

I watched this video for the first time in a while and it really cheered me up.

The little things: Warm sunny weather, just sparked a good mood for the morning when I went out into my garden (it'll be cold again next week apparently). Just going to stream a song that is playing in my head and make the most of it.

Sad that our A.C. Moore (craft store chain) is closed now, and figured that if it hadn't yet this lockdown would probably be the end of it. But I'm glad to have seen today that it will in fact be one of the lucky few to become a Michaels (competitor craft store). I'd have rather still had both stores, since it's nice to have a 2nd chance when hunting for something, and little sad that it gives me less reason to visit the one up by the mall, but will be grateful to still have a craft store near home and not being left with only the one by the mall as I hate the roads and traffic around there.

Well, the roses hubby had ordered before Valentine's FINALLY arrived today. They are- pretty, if a bit underwhelming as "holographic recreations molded from real roses", but it was the thought that was important. Still have not received the refund he was promised since they are over a month late (were "guaranteed to arrive by Valentine's day), but at least they finally got here. They will go in my vase with all my other artificial flowers.

Google "Galaxy roses". They have a website, apparently, and what is shown is far nicer looking than what was sent. Basically seems like a money grab with cheaper materials than advertised. And expensive for what we got, to boot. They basically look like transparent, rainbow-shimmery roses on "gold" stems, with that kind of holographic color-changing effect. Supposedly each is molded individually from a real rose, so that each one is "unique". But both of mine were identical. Nice concept, but a bit of a letdown after a month and a half of waiting, plus STILL no refund.

As far as the delay, they came from Germany through China then to LA. But the company is supposedly based in the US! Weird route. Corona, maybe? Can't even figure out why they were shipped through multiple countries that way, it makes no sense!

Ohhh, the images are cool looking, shame that they're not as impressive in person. Hope you guys get that refund eventually if they said there would be one. Odd shipping route... With the virus it's a wonder they showed up during this virus.

The cherry blossoms are finally blooming here. Oddly, today the park was not crowded at all. Maybe because it's been rainy. The other days the place has been pretty packed.

Anyway, it's a nice view to have during the disaster. I'll miss it after I'm dead.
