Arm(s) Guh

Just 'Cause - Arms Week

This cap is from 2x14 "Born Under A Bad Sign".

Holy Bicep Batman! And thus we wrap up this week's appreciation of arms. *g*
Thought I'd try something new for the new week. You know how fic writers will sometimes work from one word prompts? I thought I'd try that for Just 'Cause. Give me a one word prompt and I'll post a cap that fits it next week. One word per person, please. Hopefully I'll get enough for all 7 days. If not, I'll ask for more. Heh.
Saturday was meh. It was rainy & dreary outside and I slept half the afternoon away. So I wasn't really all that productive until the evening when I fixed more caps for future Just 'Cause themes while watching The X-Files. Interesting watching the series again after all these years and seeing parallels between it and SPN.
Have a nice Sunday everyone. *hugs*

Walking: Day 52 of 2012

Wonder of wonders it didn't pour down rain on me this afternoon! lol
Ok, it did sprinkle, but that's nothing. :P Still used the umbrella (gotta keep my glasses dry) and only wore a jacket over my t-shirt because it was actually kinda warm today with temps around 60.

Finally organized things in my "temporary" bedroom and unburied the exercise bike which my aunt barely ever used. In fact I seem to recall my aunt & uncle had some arguments over the thing. He wanted her to use it and she said it hurt for her to sit on it or something. They obviously got it for her to use - it's got an actual chair-type seat with a back on it instead of a bicycle seat. Makes it pretty comfortable, for me anyway. I bet that seat wasn't big enough for her though. Anyway, I'll see if I can work in using the bike during the week on days when we just come home after mom's treatments or when the weather's simply too nasty to walk in. ;)

Randomness of the week

  • My new cell phone is a week old (tomorrow) Monday. Enjoying having so much added access but still learning to use the touchscreen. Wish I could figure out the camera on it, 'cause so far what I've taken w/it kinda sucks.

  • Went back thru my "walking" tag, printed out calendars for 2009-2011 and marked all the days I walked (I'm already doing this for 2012). In 2009 I walked 49 days, in 2010 it was 56 days, and in 2011 it was 43 days. This year I'm already over 50 days. :)

  • Bought some new clothes on Thursday and Friday. My spring/summer wardrobe is pretty big, but when it comes to fall/winter it's a little more sparse. Doesn't help that a lot of my sweaters are big old things that fit like I'm wearing a tent! So I went hunting for smaller/lighter sweaters and long sleeved shirts. Success! Even got a few new scarves.

  • Lost one of my favorite rings on Thursday and was heartbroken over it. Have no idea how it even came off my pinkie as it always fits so tightly. But alas, I haven't been able to find it. :( So mom suggested I buy a new one. I found a couple nice rings at Penny's on Friday and bought them. Must admit it has helped soften the pain of losing the other one. It's not like it was sentimental or anything, but I really liked that ring.

  • Also found a Supernatural calendar at the mall on Friday. *squee* I Tweeted pics of it HERE and HERE. I went all fangirly finding it at an actual store! When I pointed to the pic of Jensen in the black tee and muscular arms and squeeled my mom went "Down, girl." LOL

Oh, btw it's kinda weird that the hurricane threatening the US east coast is named Sandy. That's my mom's name (well, Sandra). Heh.
