11:30pn. My bathtub suddenly filled with sewage. And the toilets bubbled up. #notagoodsign plumber on his way.

Midway Homestead Ice Castles. So many mixed thoughts on this. I came up here for a supposed singles activity. My first attempt in Utah to socialize with new people. Talk about a waste of time. Took 45 minutes to drive. Costs $18 to get in. And just like when I lived here 7 years ago, the singles activity was a bust. See, here wards or official groups don't plan the activities. It's usually just 2 girls with an idea. They put it on Facebook and invite the world. And usually the planners are getting a kickback. This time they just said buy tickets and show up. The tickets sold out. They said meet at the ticket office- which was closed because it was sold out. They said you buy a neon glow bracelet for $1 to help spot the group. I never did spot the group. Because how are bracelets going to be visible when everyone is wearing huge coats and gloves?? I saw a few random groups of girls I wondered about. Never spotted a bracelet. Walked around, enjoyed the ice castles, went down an ice slide, (got a cheer from strangers at the bottom- don't think adults were supposed to go down it), sat by a fire, and an hour later got bored enough to leave. Remembered all the reasons the LDS singles programs in Utah suck. (I will save my rant on why my singles congregation sucks for another day.) Meanwhile, I'm glad for the few friends I do have here. And that I love my job, and have no regrets about moving here. Just wish I had more opportunities to make more single friends. But that being said, I'm also very glad to be the kind of single adult that is perfectly happy with who she is, and with being single. #utah #ldssingles #snowhappens #icecastles

Life wrap-up

Sometimes I forget that Utah winter can be pretty.

First time in years I was able to donate and not pass out. Blood pressure was borderline low, but passed. Same with iron levels. But I managed to fill the bag for the first time in a long time too! Yeah!! #rarebloodtype

On the left- 4 pm. More than a foot deep. Ruler doesn't reach the ground. On the right- 10 am, 10 inches. And it's still coming down heavy!

When I went to bed around 2am last night we only had flurries. Woke up at 10 to find 10 inches of snow! #utah #snowhappens #goingsnowmobilingtuesdaysoicantcomplain

A massive flat tire and bent rim. What you get for parking like a douche on a pile of snow in front of fire hydrant!

#latergram I'm not big on birthday cake. So we had Brioche Beignets with salted caramel and apple butter at Copper Kitchen instead. Entree was beef bourginon. One of the best meals I've ever had!!

A beautiful bouquet of daisies just arrived for my birthday! With no name! But we can safely guess it was my parents who always send daisies (the friendliest flower) on my birthday! #youvegotmail #daisies #birthday

Before and after. Old- beige, boring, naked walls. After- light blue gray walls with art and deco! So much brighter and prettier! #hatebeige #stillneedsworkbutitisastart

Who needs a nice, soft dog bed when there is a lovely hard wood floor to sleep on?

It shipped when? And arrived when? Go home, Amazon, you're drunk.

And so it begins. What to paint my mud brown apartment that gets no natural light? Looking for the perfect not white, not gray, not baby blue shade.
