I'll Follow Me Wherever I Go

I know it looks weird that I'm following my own blogs, because it is weird. I'm aware of that fact. I am being a self creeper* for a reason though (not just to up my followers number). I tried to send a message to someone who follows my other blog (she won a giveaway), and Google Friend Connect said I needed to sign in, or that I wasn't recognized, or some such thing. On my own frelling blog! (I paused the Farscape marathon a while ago, not sure why that's stuck with me.) I've probably done something wrong, but so far as I can tell (from that one incident), I have to follow myself, and look a bit odd. Fortunately, I'm used to it.

*I consider anyone who follows my blogs to be awesome. I'm only calling myself a creeper.

I Still Have Nails

I haven't posted anything nail polish related for quite some time, and that's sad. What's even sadder, is that my nails are in horrid shape, and I haven't been keeping them polished. *gasp* In reality, it's kind of a good thing. Not only have I been keeping my hands busy making things, I haven't been chewing my nails, which is why I started my nail polish habit in the first place.

I did manage to do an Easter/pastel theme, though I didn't get around to adding the Konad stamping I'd planned. Also, the polish bubbled, and I didn't have time to fix it. :( There was food to be made, and food is generally more important.

Without further adieu, my Easter polish, and slap-dash mehndi.

I'll spare you the foot henna, and mention that the last photo is on my right hand. I'm right handed, so the combination of applying henna and taking the photo with my left hand led to a bit of fuzziness.

Small Victories

I managed to mow the lawn on Monday. I say Monday, but I started on Friday, and I say lawn, but really I only managed the flat bit. It looks a bit ragged, but I did it. I never thought I would be able to. My allergy to grass affects my daily life; I can't go outside when my neighbors are mowing, or have just mowed, and, on bad days, I just can't go outside. Not to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful day, but I can't walk from my front door to the car in the driveway.

Lately, since I've stopped taking pseudoephedrine twice a day, my allergies have strangely seemed a bit less severe. Maybe it's because I'm not suffering the side effects, or because I've also become more cognizant of my food allergies. Either way, I am able to go outside, so long as the neighbors or the wind aren't stirring up the grass.

Determined to be a "regular person", I decided to take on the task of lawn mowing. I purchased a reel mower, because I knew a power mower was completely out of the question. Even the UPS guy mocked my choice, everyone knows those old relics are difficult to use. I also knew I couldn't possibly use a string trimmer, so I bought grass shears. It is laborious, for me, and I can only do a small bit at a time, before immediately jumping in the shower to rinse off the grass pollen.

Just being able to do it, to cut down the grass in my yard, seems a great triumph. I am so proud and happy. Alternatively, I am horribly saddened by the feeling of success; it is a simple task that people manage to do once a week (or in the case of my across-the-street neighbor, twice a week). Woohoo! I can almost function like a person.

Monday Muppets

I want a Bossman (the big pink guy), though I'm guessing it wouldn't be as much fun without Richard Hunt controlling him. :( I'd probably put out an eye, or my back, trying to maneuver that behemoth.

And a bit of themed shopping...
