Good Things Post  
Let's try this.

-Fic for me! One was posted yesterday and the other today.

Love Letters is my fic for this round of [info]holmestice. It's a wonderfully written fic where John learns to pick pocket and what he finds when he pick pockets are love letters from Greg to Mycroft. It ends as Sherlock/John, adorably.

Running Silent is the fic [info]sahiya wrote me. They made a h/c bingo card months back and when one donated some money to one of a few charities to spite Trump, [info]sahiya would then write a fic for the person using the prompt the person chose. I chose Steve/Bucky/Tony, headaches/migraine and oh this fic not only fit that in (I chose that prompt because I get headaches and migraines a lot and wanted a h/c fic for them), but include so many of my favorite elements: Bucky still recovering, Tony being an awesome mature adult, Steve graciously accepting being sick. I love it.

-With the extra shift I pulled at work and the recent donations (so much love for everyone!), I am at $130 of the $200 I need. Very exciting.

-Thunder storm. We don't get them often where I am so they are a wonderful treat. There was a bit of a passing shower than had some thunder as we got home, but then on the heels of that one was a proper storm. *crosses fingers we don't loose power*

-Heating pads.

-Apple cider donuts. Friend Mum and sibling were out and about today to get Friend Mum's car oil changed and they found an old fashioned donut place. They got half a dozen of the cider donuts to take home.

-Tea

-New music. I listen to either the classic rock station or swing stations on Pandora at work. The swing station has introduced me to Caro Emerald. Hoping I'll soon have a few dollars to download some of her songs.

Recent bear-vengers trips  


We have sibling's bear-Nat on the left and my bear-Steve on the right. (Steve got a bit emotional at his namesake's demise.)



And this is from The Diary of Anne Frank.

HOW ABOUT A POST THAT ISN'T ABOUT RAISING MONEY??  
I think that would be polite for everyone. I do feel bad that I've been lurking the last few weeks and haven't updated in as long. It's actually been pretty shitty so I've reasons for lurking and being quiet. Before I get to the update, have a photo:

That is the tea pot and tea cup I used for breakfast this morning with a tiny box of tea I found recently for 69 cents! It has 10 bags in it. I suspect it's a sampler kind of thing, but I have tried the brand before and it was cheaper to get this little guy than a full box (boo). I'll probably refill it for the con.

Onwards!

But good news, I am halfway to the $200 I need to get me through to the end of July.

Offering Cookies  
So I haven't raised any money at all by asking for help so I'm going to change it up.

To clarify why I need help, see this post for details: http://alafaye.livejournal.com/503700.html (Short and sweet: I got shafted for work at the same time I had some big purchases due -- e.g. minutes for phones and pet supplies -- and am now critically short especially going into June when our SNAP money will have to spread to 5 weeks instead of the usual four and just before my already paid for vacation time (that means unpaid time off) at the beginning of July.) I need to raise at least $90, but looking ahead I think I need to actually aim for $200.

I am going to offer the following for each $5 of money I get toward this needed funding:

-1 dozen chocolate chip cookies
-1 small craft item (e.g. a small 3 x 3 in jewelry box painted in a color of your choice)
-A somewhat bad and somewhat good drawing (feel free to ask for a photo of such an item)

Caveats:

-I am not serve safe certified. When baking, I will make sure my hair is braided back and my hands and clothes are clean, but I have two pets and my hair is long. Things happen.
-Shipping: items will start shipping at the beginning of August when my budget balances out and it will happen on a schedule (first donate gets their items shipped out first) so you may end up waiting until September for an item. If you would like to save me more money and get your item sooner, feel free to include a few dollars for shipping.
-I cannot do international shipping. If you live outside the US and would like to participate, please d.m. me for details about how much extra shipping will cost you.

Yes, you can donate say $10 and choose to get a few items (e.g. 1 dozen cookies and a craft item). You can also choose to do this and have the items sent at different times (e.g. donate $10 and then choose to have 1 dozen cookies sent in August and then your second dozen sent in December or even later).

Please ask if you have any questions. It will also be a big help if you can get the word out -- here or on Tumblr or Twitter or Facebook.

Thanks.
