The sun came out yesterday and it was glorious. Lady took me for a walk around Greenlake and most of the time I had my mouth open, catching radiation on the tip of my tongue. Mmm.

We went for lunch in Wallingford and grabbed some cupcakes from Trophy as well. Any place that has cupcake bakeries is the place for me. Then we came back and Netflix gave us Science of Sleep instead of X-Files, which we watched and were sorely disappointed in. MCs shouldn't be that horribly whiny. But there was fondue and whine and it was delicious. Yesterday was, as I dubbed it, the Day of Calories. Three years! Woot.

Today the advent of dawn woke me up. I have a dawn simulator as an alarm clock for getting up at 5:30am, but actually being woken up by a real dawn that isn't smothered in clouds was rather refreshing. The sky is still so blue. We'll be going to Discovery Park today and hopefully down to the rocky beach where I will then proceed to dig in my heels and make some vitamin D. Thank goodness for once this delicious weather isn't happening while I'm stuck at work.

Today is also the day for rearranging furniture. I apparently get that itch every six months or so. And cleaning. So much cleaning.

And to add to the world being a bit brighter than in December, I've started dreaming again. Or rather, remembering my dreams. And not just any dreams, but ones where people are trying to kill me. Which means that everything is right in my little world.

I’m writing and editing this at work to actually get something written for LJ for once. It’s been over a week since I last posted, I realized. Anyway – I’ve got several things to focus on for the next six months – reading, writing, and studying. I’ve got all that Greek to work on, Guardians to edit, and much to read. Speaking of which, I need things to read. I haven’t had a chance to read for fun for a while, and now I’m going to make books do the double duty of both being a way to make the bus ride more fun and also to cut them horribly apart and maybe learn something. I recently finished both Terry Pratchett’s Making Money and Gail Martin’s The Summoner. Right now I’ve just started on Tad William’s War of the Flowers, which is both thick and… different. It's taken nearly 100 pages to get properly into it, which I s'pose is only fitting when it's over 800 pages long.

But I'll wait to judge that until I've read it. Instead, I’d rather <s>tear apart</s> review the book I just finished. )

We have so much furniture now. Lady's mom came last weekend and bought us a dresser and while at the furniture place I caved and got a coffee table and some shelves for our books, so now we have more room for books and a place to put delicious beverages. That and all of our clothes fit in the dresser. Is good. I have a desk, too, courtesy of my mom, which I still have to put together. I'm a little pooped from putting so much furniture together, but now I can't imagine wanting anything more. Well, I mean, aside from a nice vacation and a finished novel, but I can only wish and work on those.

Three year anniversary this weekend. ^-^ And moreover, we have Monday off of work. It's rather nice being paid to not be there. But this weekend... dunno what to do. I love her so much and I want to show my appreciation with food, but there're just so many excellent food places here... sometimes I feel a bit spoiled.

I should be getting a raise at work next week. And probably switching to Deed in Lieu completely, which is cool, because then I get the people who actually want to get rid of their homes instead of those cheating the system or in bad times. Either way, I really want out of the foreclosure business. It's sucking at my soul a little bit at a time. I mean, I do have job security, but I would much rather be doing things that help people. Call me a humanitarian. I'd better get into grad school.
