~ I bought my first binder! I'm probably a little too excited about this, but I can't wait until it arrives and I can see what I look like in it! I've tried to bind before, usually with lousy homemade wraps that take forever to put on and then may or may not actually stay where they're supposed to for longer than a couple of hours, and the hassle just wasn't worth the payoff. So I'm hoping that a shirt that I can wear much more easily than a wrap will help bring a bigger payoff for less effort.

~ Caught Giratina in Pokemon Shuffle! Now, to hope that I can rank in the Mega Banette battle and get a Mega Stone this time. I didn't manage to rank high enough to get the Absolite last time, which disappointed me, but I'll push to get the rank this time!

~ Someone will be coming by to do some roofing tomorrow, which means having my sleep interrupted, combined with the landlord coming over to do a few things to finish winterizing the house (mostly cleaning the furnace filters), so I anticipate not only very broken sleep, but also having to do a bunch of housework again to get ready for him arriving. I did a bunch the weekend before last, of course, but over a week has passed and things get messy or need doing again, so, tonight is a cleaning night.

Then hopefully he can come and do what he needs to do and then largely leave us alone for the rest of the winter. I do best when I'm largely left alone and can live and work to my own schedule.

Fortunately it's both compost pickup and recycling pickup tomorrow morning, which will mean a whole load of stuff can easily be taken out of the house and left for somebody else to deal with. I love that recycling pickup is curbside in this city!

~ Speaking of recycling, though, I'm very tempted to start making a weekly trip to the recycling depot with cans and bottles, so that I can get a little bit of money back. Curbside recycling doesn't give me a deposit back. And I don't have a car, but the depot is less than an hour's walk from my house, so it would be an okay trip in most weather, and even if I only got a couple of dollars back, that's a couple of dollars I wouldn't have otherwise, and I have a ready excuse to get out and walk more.

If I don't start doing that before winter, it's definitely something I'll start doing in the spring. But so far I hear we're going to have a mostly mild winter, not nearly as much snow as last winter brought, so even this year I might have plenty of clear weeks where I could make the trip.
