#4 So I’ve seen some mild concern, I don’t even know if concern is the right word? But I’ve seen people recently who have had issues with swatches from indie companies. More importantly issues with eye swatches. They aren’t getting the color they expect from the photos. They are usually on photos where there is clearly or sometimes not so clearly more than one shade of shadow on someones eye. My question to you is, do you prefer eye swatches to have JUST the color you are currently looking at so you know what color you are really getting, or do you not care? I do realize that do to monitor differences and lighting differences colors may not always be exact, but there is no excuse for a color to be extremely different from what is pictured.
I personally prefer to see just the color I am purchasing/looking at. It’s easy to think you’re getting a different color when part of it is blended with something else, and sometimes it’s not so obvious there are multiple colors on an eye. When it’s just the one shade it’s easy to see what you’re getting. I think if you want to show how it blends with other colors, that is awesome, but please include a photo of just that color on your eye ball so I can really see it. So uh that’s my two or probably twenty-five cents. hehehe

#5 We REALLY need a working lawn mower. We also need a weed whacker. We’ve been paying the neighbor kids behind us to mow our lawn. They get $20 every other week to do it, and do a really crappy job. Kai keeps having to go out and remind them to cut all of the lawn and they still miss stuff. It’s just frustrating. We have a mower, but it’s electric and it died when Kai mowed the lawn with it after a rain. He probably should have picked out a gas mower, but he wanted and electric one so we didn’t have to deal with the gas. He was worried about it being in the garage and making me sick. Also if it were a perfect world and we were rich I’d also love something like this: echo hedge trimmer. We don’t have a lot of bushes but we have a few giant ones that I’d really like trimmed back. Oh well. Maybe one day.
#6 I’m really tired today. I was feeling better yesterday and ran some errands and picked up some extra goodies for Stephanie because I still haven’t gotten her giveaway package shipped out to her. I feel awful about it so I picked up a few surprises for her that I hope she likes. I’m hoping to get it shipped out in the next couple of days. It’s been one thing after another since I got sick. But I overdid it and am now paying for it today. Kharizma stopped by yesterday so I could fix her computer and she brought me TONS of yummy red and green leaf lettuce, kale and chard from her garden. I made a giant salad last night which was delicious. I’m going to turn the kale into kale chips hopefully later. Then I made miso soup from dinner which turned out delicious. Tonight I’m supposed to make teriyaki salmon. Hopefully I’m up to it. Right now I’m not sure. So far though my blood sugar hasn’t been wildy out of control since I got back on my gabapentin. This morning it was 149. So hooray.
#7 Apparently I have a chiropractor appointment today that I’d totally forgotten about. I just want to curl up and go to bed. le sigh
I guess I had more to say than I thought. :shifty:
