1. I actually slept in until ten, which is not something that usually happens lately even if I have the opportunity.

2. I had a nice relaxing day and didn't go anywhere or do much of anything.

3. Cooler weather means cats in the bed.

1. Day off tomorrow! Tuesday is the dreaded twice-yearly inventory, and I will likely be at work for like eighteen hours or something ridiculous like that, so I am going to enjoy my day of rest tomorrow.

2. I got some really good cuddle time with Jasper today. Poor baby misses Carla so much. :( But I'm loving the cuddle time.

3. Despite some recent hecticness, things are actually going really well at work right now.

4. I love this pic of Molly.

1. I got to sleep in and go to work at my scheduled time and didn't have anyone calling or texting me in the morning about urgent stuff. (Hopefully can replicate that again tomorrow.)

2. One of the samplings we have at work this weekend is ramen and that made me want ramen for dinner, so I bougt some and made it and it was delicious.

3. Our Apple TV has been malfunctioning even more than usual lately, but we didn't want to buy a new one just yet considering they were going to be releasing a new version soon. Well, they finally officially announced it and we have ordered it and it will be ours in a few weeks.

4. My cats are just so cute I can't stand it.

1. Mario Odyssey looks so great. Every new preview I see makes me want to play it even more. Only a month and a half left till it's out!

2. Miraculously, the sprouts I had in the fridge from a couple weeks ago were still good, so I made a tasty chicken sandwich tonight for dinner.

3. Hopefully I can sleep in tomorrow? We'll see if it happens, but theoretically it's a go.

4. An employee is transferring to another store and today was his last day, so there was pizza, and since I was the one who ordered it, I got from Ciccero's, which is the best, and I got (among other things) their BBQ chicken pizza, which is so good. *_*

5. With Carla gone, Jasper is wanting more attention from me the past couple days. He has been sleeping on my desk a lot when I'm at the computer, and tonight I even got to cuddle with him for a while!

1. Kinda bummed I didn't get more done today, especially translating-wise, but I actually got a fair bit of random stuff done around the house, and anyway after yesterday I just needed a day to really relax, and I had one, so yay.

2. It's been so chilly the last few nights I've been using my heavy blanket again.

3. I had some veggies I needed to use up, so I got a steak down from the freezer and made some instant mashed potatoes and had a nice dinner, and there was enough leftovers to put together two more meals, which are now in tupperwares for easy eating over the next few days.

4. Nothing brings kitties together like stalking a bug.

1. I am exhausted. Was at work over thirteen hours today and pretty much going non-stop the entire time, but I have tomorrow off and only a couple small things I need to do, so I am going to relax and enjoy staying home.

2. There's a fair amount of leftovers in the fridge right now, so I was able to just pop something in the microwave and didn't have to cook dinner.

3. I love this sweetie Chloe.

torachan: nepeta from homestuck (nepeta)
1. The cats don't usually sleep in the bed with us because there's not much room, but this morning I woke up to find both Jasper and Chloe in bed with me. :D

2. Carla had a safe and uneventful flight.

3. It's actually quite chilly tonight. I'm enjoying it! (Though if I weren't going to bed in a few minutes, I'd be tempted to put on a sweater.)

4. I finished up the one-shot that goes with Tera Girl, so hopefully we can get that posted sometime soon and then that will be one more project completed and off my list of things to juggle!

5. Jasper!

1. I was super tired this afternoon and took a nap. I actually felt refreshed and more awake afterwards, which was nice.

2. I took Carla to the airport tonight and now I have the bed to myself for a whole week, woohoo! :D

3. Cutie Molly.

torachan: a kitten looking out the window (chloe in window)
1. It's my day off tomorrow, but I can't sleep in because I have to go to Gardena to renew my forklift license and the class starts at nine. :( But at least traffic is going the opposite direction, so it should only take half an hour-ish to get there rather than an hour or more if I were coming the other way, and the class should only be a couple hours and then I have the rest of the day free.

2. Carla is going back to the midwest to visit her folks for a week and went to See's Candy today to get them some candy, and got me a bag of Scotchmallows, too. :D

3. Tonight's Rick and Morty was so good! I loved all the world building going on and am super excited about spoilers )

4. Such a pretty kitty.

torachan: john from homestuck looking shocked (john shocked)
1. I ended up having to go in to work early this morning, but at least it wasn't super urgent so I was still able to sit and have a bite to eat before I left.

2. We had strawberries and whipped cream for dessert tonight. Yum!

3. We were so close to getting a shot of all three kitties on the shelves (Molly where she is here, and Chloe and Jasper on the shelf below), but sadly they moved when Carla got up with her camera. But she did get this cute shot of Molly and Chloe together.

torachan: my glitch character (glitch)
1. Had a pretty hectic day today, but a good one. The two new stockers who started today both seem pretty good, the new produce guy that started earlier this week is working out well, I hired a new cashier, and only one person was out sick.

2. Although I had a long day I still made the effort to cook dinner and we had super delicious curry and now have tons of leftovers.

3. We got some epic pics of Jasper napping yesterday.

1. Since I decided to add all my manga to Goodreads, I went ahead and added everything I've read this year, which of course put me way over my goal for the year, so I've upped my goal again to 120 total. I'm at 95 right now, so that should be doable. I don't want to set it too high and then not make my goal, after all, and I can always up it again if I seem to be reading at a faster rate.

2. I thought I might have to go in to work really early tomorrow, but now I won't have to!

3. It's actually pretty chilly tonight. (I'm actually tempted to put on a sweater.)

4. Being home meant I got to spend plenty of time with my sweet kitties.

torachan: a cartoon kitten with a surprised/happy expression (chii)
1. Got a text at 7:45 this morning that a delivery truck was at work and the guy who is supposed to do the forklift had called and said he's stuck in traffic. I wasn't sure when he would get there, but figured I'd better go in anyway just to help check everything in, since most other people wouldn't be there until nine. As it turns out, the guy who was stuck in traffic didn't get there until an hour after I did, and the delivery guy had just left the pallets outside in the alley and driven off (including frozen merchandise), so I'm really glad that I just live down the street and it doesn't take me much time to get ready for work, so I was able to roll out of bed and be there in fifteen minutes, but jeez.

2. The nice thing about taking a Tuesday off is that not only do I have two days off in a row with Monday and Tuesday, but then I only have to work one day before it's my day off again! :D

3. Molly is such a sweetheart. Look at that fluffy tummy and boopable snoot!

1. I decided to start adding all my manga to Goodreads. Back when I first made an account there and imported my collection from LibraryThing, I think the GR catalogue wasn't as extensive or they couldn't get stuff from Amazon Japan or something, so all my manga didn't import, except for a handful that were randomly changed to the English version of stuff. So I just gave up and used GR for books and continued to use LT for manga.

All that seems to have changed now, though, and I think I'd really like to include manga in my reading total going forward, though, which means I of course want it to show for previous years, too... I tried importing two different ways, but it didn't work, so I decided to add it by hand. Since I have over 2500 manga on LT, this will take a while, but I did get almost all of 2005 done today, except for a few volumes they don't seem to have in their system, which I'll have to add by hand. (I'll save those for last.)

2. I made gyoza and edamame for dinner tonight. Super tasty and also so nice to have nice enough weather to want to cook again. I did get pretty sweaty standing over the stove, but cooled off quickly enough once I was done.

3. I love this pic of the kitties so much. I feel like they were plotting something when I walked in on them.

1. It was so much cooler today, especially tonight. Plus it actually rained for a bit in the wee hours of the morning. Pretty hard, too, though I don't know how long it lasted, since I went back to sleep right away.

2. I got some housework done, did a lot of reading, and a bit of translating. All in all, a pretty relaxing day off.

3. I have another day off tomorrow!

4. I really can't get over how huge Jasper is! He takes up the whole counter space.

torachan: (Default)
1. Busy day, but I got everything cleared out of the way to be able to take two days off! Labor Day is a paid holiday, but since Monday is my regular day off anyway, I have to take another day off or lose it. It can be within three months of the holiday, so it doesn't have to be the day after, but after a super busy week like this, having a couple days off in a row sounds really nice, so I'm glad I was able to swing it.

2. It got really hot this morning, but then peaked and dropped like twenty degrees and is finally down in the seventies tonight. It's supposed to be a lot cooler tomorrow, too. It actually sprinkled a little this evening, though I wish it had actually full on rained.

3. The cats have not been enjoying the heat. Poor Chloe looks a bit melty here (but super cute).

torachan: nepeta from homestuck (nepeta)
1. Because I worked so long yesterday and was so exhausted when I got home, I didn't have any time to work on the paid translation, so I was kind of worried about having to finish it all up tonight, but I finished it no problem (despite being at work for almost as long today as yesterday). If I'd known work was going to be this busy, I would have hesitated to take this on, but I'm really glad I did because we can use the extra money.

2. I went in early today because I was afraid it was going to be hectic and short-handed in the morning, and it was. It would have been a lot worse if I hadn't been there, so I'm glad I had already planned to do that.

3. I love this sweet Molly face.

torachan: nepeta from homestuck (nepeta)
1. I was at work for twelve hours, but at least I'm home now. (And thankfully twelve hours isn't an everyday occurrence.)

2. It looks like the heat should peak tomorrow, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

3. Caught Jasper mid-yawn and he looks so fierce! XD

torachan: a kitten looking out the window (chloe in window)
1. It was hot today, hotter than I would prefer, but it was quite dry, which definitely made it more bearable. (Though it was dry enough that it was making my contacts uncomfortable, so I actually had to switch to glasses in the evening, even though I usually hate wearing glasses when it's warm because they make the bridge of my nose sweaty!)

2. I got 3/5 of the translation job done today, so if I finish up a page each tomorrow and Saturday after work, I will be done in plenty of time.

3. I managed to post one last thing before the end of the month (well, technically it was a few minutes into September in my timezone, but there were still timezones where it was August!).

4. Chloe was looking so cute up on the shelf above my desk until she rolled off in her sleep, poor thing.

torachan: close-up of a sleepy kitten face (sleepy molly)
1. Got another small paid translation job. Unfortunately this one won't be finished before the end of this month (since that's tomorrow), so that means I won't get paid for it until the end of October, but the money will be a nice surprise when it comes!

2. We're getting some new fridge cases in the store tomorrow, and I had to run around a lot today and yesterday (especially yesterday) getting stuff ready for that, so it's been a pretty exhausting couple of days, but at least I don't have to be there tomorrow when they install the cases, and can just enjoy my day off.

3. Molly in her box and Jasper on his scratcher (well, his for now; they all love it). It's rare to get a shot of the two of them together.
