What I Was Up To – May 2019

I saw Astronaut Ricky Arnold talk at work.

I got a perfect Shinx from a raid. Not shiny of course.

I neglected to get a photo of the insides.

Part of my desk at work. The NASA decoration was made for me as a thank you by a student! So sweet!

We went through our giant shelf of cookbooks to thin out ones we don’t use. We have some nice ones, but a lot of the fancy chef ones require items I wouldn’t even know where to buy and we just don’t have the time to take 3 hours to cook a meal.

And then there was this:

No thank you.

Wearing my Kitschy Witch magic show dress! (With a bow belt added.) This dress ended up cut smaller in the waist than the previous Halloween dress I had bought, which was a different style. I ordered my usual size and the waist, predictably, did not fit. I thought I could just add a gore in the side seam BUT when I looked closer, there was a dart in the back as well as front. I simply picked that out, repleated that small section of skirt to the bodice and it fit perfectly! So this dress was very easily modified. A larger size and the bust fit would be off. So glad I stuck to this size and so glad it was so easy to modify! I didn’t take a pic of the back but it didn’t need the dart for my figure. I adore Kitschy Witch’s designs. So I’m glad I could make this work so easily!

New recipe (from previously mentioned cookbook culling) – steak fajitas with a mojo de ago we made for a recipe in one of the books. It was good!

During a Pokemon event, the very first absol task I tried gave me a shiny! I’d wanted one of these for ages:

And then, after work, I was leaving an unrewarding shinx raid and an egg hatched and… shiny! I was so shocked.

Oh gosh. Doug left his water on the coffee table and this happened:

And… then I forgot to tell him and… he drank the rest of the water before I could stop him. Oops.

Happy girl!

One of my favorite artists for pins and other Disney-related stuff is Alicia’s Wonderland. I got this adorable keychain from her:

So one morning, I heard what sounded like scratching coming from the walls. Was there a squirrel in the walls??? But then I narrowed it down to the window in our bedroom. And discovered this:

We never noticed the screen was ripped because this window is ground-floor facing the street so the shade is always down. Can you spot the birdie who decided this would be an excellent spot for a nest?
