A New Toy and Some Random Thoughts

I'm currently sitting on my Couch testing out new toy. Now don't think perverted thoughts. Saturday Darling Hubby bought me a Fly Fusion pen, It cost a decent amount, but it will be useful for my role-playing game and for my blog as well. I can now write on special notebook paper and upload my thoughts directly to the computer without having to type them all again. Now I can blog while in my warm living room and not worry about waking up Baby Girl. So far, it seems to work.

Today Darling Hubby and I watched “Hogfather” that we recorded last week. It was a movie about how Death becomes the Hogfather (aka Santa), It was a really good movie. After that I worked on making the Magic key we will be leaving out for Santa on Christmas Eve. I painted a wooden door knob fob, like one you would find in a hotel (a do not disturb sign, so to speak) and will attach a key (an ornament key painted gold with yellow gemstones on it so it looks magical) to it later, We plan to "mail" it to Bug, like Santa mailed it to him and give it to him Christmas Eve. It’s something that we can use every year and then give to him later when he has a family of his own. Yes, we have a fireplace, but it’s one that locks from the outside so we though that this would work out rather than trying to explain how Santa gets out of our wood stove.

After that Darling hubby set our oven on fire. Nothing serious, just-a small fire. Apparently, when I baked my pumpkin Cheesecake the other day butter spilled out of it and mingled with the other pan drippings in the bottom out of my oven and were ignited by the heat element, We know the smoke detector works and I'm thankful we didn't have to use the fire extinguisher. A little splash of water did the trick, At least our pizza didn't taste funny and the house doesn't small bad. The dogs have determined that they very much dislike the smoke alarm and Bug could really care less. He didn't even leave the computer to come see what was going on.

I'm waiting to see what the Weather brings for tomorrow. The great Northeast is expecting a snowstorm. We are only supposed to get 3 or so inches of snow, but we may be getting some freezing rain, sleet and ice. Travel may be pretty treacherous in the morning. Depending on if the college is open or closed, that will tell if I'll be watching Baby Girl. I just hope the evening travel is better. I want to go to craft night and finish my quilt.

Well, I'm going to finish this up and upload it. Hopefully my new toy is worth the money we paid for it.


And just a note…the Fly Pen worked pretty well. It has a little trouble with reading some of my letters, but now I know what to work on and I’ll be blogging and recording notes for our game easily in no time!
