July and August 2015 In A Nutshell

September 20, 2015

Sorry for another hiatus. I’ve been in kind of a bad place lately, mentally and spiritually, but by the grace of God I’m starting to pull through. I took on a new position at work and I’m still trying to figure out what my new schedule is going to be like and when I’ll have time for blogging and running my shop. I’m not giving up on this blog any time soon, but I am officially taking a break for the next month to get things in order. I have high hopes for this blog and I think that I can get back on track in the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience during this stressful and confusing time in my life.

Now that I’ve shared the not so pleasant parts, here are some of the fun things I’ve been up to the last couple of months:

July and August 2015 In A Nutshell | allonsykimberly.com

We celebrated Andrew’s 26th birthday and my 25th birthday in July. We had a small get together with Andrew’s family where I learned to play Settlers of Catan and ate a delicious vegan birthday cake made by my mother and sister-in-law. Then that weekend we had a picnic at the beach with some friends.

I got our foster kitties, Roy and Marceline fixed. They both were so pitiful in their cones of shame. We had to keep them separated while they healed, which meant I had to deal with a very scared and stressed Marceline. She has bad separation anxiety when she’s not with her brother, so I spent those nights sleeping on the floor in her room so she wouldn’t feel so lonely. Thankfully they healed quickly and were able to be reunited after a couple of days.

We went to the Cleveland Shakespeare festival with our friend Lyndsey to see The Merchant of Venice and guess who got pulled on stage! Andrew didn’t have to do much – just stand there and pretend to be Launcelot’s conscience – but, it was still rather amusing.

We fixed our patio up with some plants and a bistro set and some string lights. We also had curtains hanging up, but the HOA made us take them down – one of those dumb rules you have to follow when living in a condominium. It still looks a million times better than it did when we moved in and Hugo seems to approve so I’m not mad.

I helped out with my church’s Vacation Bible School. Our theme was “And God Said” and my friend Amber and I were in charge of creating the decorations for the seven days of creation.

I scored a dress form for $30 at the Cleveland Flea Market! Andrew was kind enough to carry it back to the car for me. He’s a nice guy.

Andrew and I went on some strolls through pretty places and made friends with the local wildlife.

Roy can’t get enough vegetable chips. He did this about twenty times in a row, always getting his head (and sometimes his limbs) stuck in the bag. He’s persistent if nothing else.

For a brief and shining moment, all of our cats were getting along. Sadly, this is not the case anymore. I don’t know what happened, but Marceline and Hugo are mortal enemies now. We left the house for maybe an hour and a half one night and came back to a massacre. They’re both fine, but cannot be near each other anymore. So, Roy and Marceline are back to being confined in their own room and we’re back to looking for a home for them. I can’t even put into words how upset this makes me. I love these cats so much and hate that I have to give them to someone else, but I know it’s what’s best for everyone. It just really sucks.

That being said, if you or someone you know wants these two cuties let me know!

 

That’s all the updates for now. Hope to post again within the next month!

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Fictional Couples | allonsykimberly.com

I’ll admit it, I’m a hardcore shipper. So when I saw that I had missed the “Favorite Fictional Couples” prompt for 5 Fandom Friday back in February, I knew I had to do a little back tracking and share my favorite OTPs.

Weekly Wonder No. 88 | allonsykimberly.com

Once again Weekly Wonders is a few days late due to a jam packed weekend. I took the babies in to get fixed on Saturday morning and spent the rest of the day cleaning and fixing up my patio and living room. Once the kittens were home and ready to rest and recover we had a little joint birthday party for Andrew and myself with Andrew’s family. And that was just Saturday! On Sunday we continued our birthday celebrating at the beach with some friends in the afternoon then met up with a friend from college in the evening at The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival. So yeah, busy, busy weekend, but I finally had some time today to sit down and share some of the wonderful things from around the web this week.

I’m a huge fan of the Hellboy films and all of the recent hype Ron Perlman has been trying to stir up for a third movie lately has got me really excited that it might actually happen. And if it does, Rob Csiki has already created a pretty epic movie poster for it.
