Went out again  
Ugh, I'm so tired right now. I went out again today. It was nice to get out but not for the reason I had to go out. I was going to sell some eggs to my friend at the Chinese restrant, but I left the eggs on the counter. Oops. I remembered when I was pulling out but had so much stuff to do I didn't bother going back in. FINALLY!!! Finally I mailed Silvolf's and Suzi's Fall gifts. My gosh they're going to be so late. They went out today. I'm sorry about that. I hope you guys like the candy. Now I need to focus on Christmas.

So I went to the feed store and got four huge bags of pigeon, parrot, budgie and chicken food. Food shouldn't be an issue when we're gone. That was a long drive but much needed. Unfortunately I had to go all the way back to Best Buy because the extra battery I bought for the camera didn't work. The battery that came with the camera worked and charged. This one didn't charge after I left it on for four hours and the camera wouldn't turn on. Very annoying. They gave me another one so I hope this one will work though now I'm worried and don't trust this generic brand. That's what I wasn't too happy about making an extra trip. I'm home now and pooped. I may or may not take the eggs. If I don't I'll do it tomorrow and try to take my three bags of cans for recycling. Making money would be good.

I also need to make some calls tomorrow I'm not looking forward to. I need to call my web server and ask them why they're trying to charge me for something I didn't order. I'm sure it will be resolved though. I need to call the travel agent and make my last payment. I'm worried because I haven't gotten any recipts. It's so close to the date I hope nothing goes wrong.

I'm having fun in Skyrim. There are ways to cheat in the game and so long as it's not a spoiler I love cheating in games. You buy houses in this game, but some are hard to get because they're very expensive. But you can get them for free and all the decorations. You have to get the stewart to stand close to a dresser or a chest then engage him in conversation about buying the house. When you say yes you want to buy it you back out quickly and put all your gold into the chest. Because the characters talk so much and the money isn't taken out until they're done talking you can glitch the get it for free. He'll say something long like, "Excellent you'll be very happy. If you want any decorations I'll make it happen. Happy to help." While he's saying all that you've hidden your gold. Then just get the gold out of the chest and do it again. The hard part is getting them to stand next to a chest so they're in reach and you can quickly turn around and dump your money. You have to use the sprint and shove them back. Some places it's too hard to work, but I managed to get the most expensive house in Solitude with all the stuff in it this way. HA!

Oh I took pics of the pointsettias.

Red and yellow/white poinsettia

A normal red and a white/yellow one.

Pink Poinsettia

The pink one. This is my favorite. I love the color and it's so different. The reds are beautiful but I like seeing something differnet.
Chris planting pink poinsettia

Chris planting it. Need to plant the other two still.

I'm pooped. I've had to do so much extroverting and it's still not over.

Oh cool! I'll keep an eye out for your package.

That's annoying about the battery. I bought a new battery for my laptop late last year and it seems to not last as long anymore. This is bothering me.

Hehe I love finding cheats like that in games.

Poinsettias are cool because the flowers look like the leaves.

I hope it makes it soon.
That's typical of all recharable batteries actually. They last about a year then won't hold charge anymore. I havea bunch of AA batteries and I put a different color nail polish dot on them so I know which are older. I recently thew out all the purples because they just didn't work anymore. They come in a four pack and it's time I bought another set.

Getting free houses is definitely good. I miss the duplication cheat from the first game. It's awesome they never patched it and it made everything so awesome. I filled my castle bedroom with around 200 pumpkins in that game. I couldn't even walk.

Yeah they're so pretty. Actually those are colored leaves. The flowers are tiny. They're the yellow things in the center.

I also like your pink poinsetta best. I may get one if I can find one at a decent price around here.
I hope yours grows well for you.

It's so different and nice. I got mine at Lowe's for $5. It's the smallest size they had but I didn't care because I know they will grow.

$5 is not bad.

That is annoying about the battery. We have bought spare ones for the cameras, and they have charged, but don't last as long as the battery that comes with the camera, and 'die' sooner. That would have annoyed me, too, to have to make that trip.

Talking about posting things, I sent your Christmas card today! I hope it gets there. It is not one I have drawn, still working on that one, and I wanted one to get to you before you make your trip. Good luck on your trip money! It would suck for a stuff up to happen now.

The poinsettias are beautiful. The red is my favourite :) I hope they grow well for you.

Luckily the one I exchanged it for worked. But what bad luck the first one I got was defective. But for a $62 battery I had to make the trip. I don't think the generic ones are as good as the ones made by the manufacturer. If you have generic spare ones that might be why.

Oh thank you. I can't wait to see it. I hope it will make it. I need to make my Christmas card list. You're already on it of course. I'm drawing mine too like I always do so I need to finish that then I can print them and send them. Thanks. I'm so looking forward to it.

Thanks. Yeah it's nice to always have the traditional red ones. Me too. If they survive this first winter since they're babies they'll make it for years to come.

It might happen that I will send you my Christmas card a bit later than the other ones because I want to look for seeds a bit more, I have found a store that had some but none of the nice pumpkin ones I wanted to get for you so I'm going to another store this weekend and look there again. ;)

Awesome and thank you very much, I will keep my eyes out for the package! ^__^

The plants look really nice, we call them "Weihnachtsstern" which means Star of Christmas, we had a few of them inside the house already but none of them ever survived. XD

I don't mind at all. It's ok. I'm so bad about always sending you everything a month or more late I understand completely. Also if you want to take your time to find the exact seeds you told me about that's also ok. I sent you some pumpkin seeds in this package. I mixed them all up in one little bag though. The big white ones are from the One Too Many which looks like THIS. It has beautiful pink veins and white flesh. The smaller seeds are from a pumpkin I think it's called Wolf and has giant stems. They look like THIS. So you can plant them next year and hopefully they'll do something for you. They probably grow better in your climate.

Thanks for letting me know the German name. I like learning words in German. I took a few years in highschool and college but don't remember much since I have no one to practice with. Yeah they are tropical and like lots of sun and warmth.
