Welcome to my blog!

I picked my blog name (Alrischa) after the alpha star of the constellation Pisces. I like Astronomy! I don't believe in astrology at all, of course, but technically I'm a Pisces. Of course, that means nothing, but I think it's funny that astrologists fuss over which star sign one is born under... when they've got all the dates wrong! My birthday (April 2)falls 'officially' under Ares. But, according to my Starry Night software, the sun was in Pisces when I was born. So there you go. Precession happens.

Starry Night also tells me that it's "Alrescha" but that name was taken, so I went for one of the (many) alternate spellings. It means "ropes".

I live out of town in a 'house of sticks' my hubby and I built on our 5 acre block. We moved in 7 months ago. Our driveway is finally done (before the Muddy Season! Phew!) and our front fence is next. Don't ever build a house. It's hard!!!

I have 6 guinea pigs (currently) named Mocha, Pirate, Heidi, Winky, Scratchy and 'baby'. 'Baby' was born on March 14, and remains nameless. I need my oldest niece to visit... it takes her 3 seconds to think of a name.

I have no kids. Not yet. I want a boy called Joshua Nathan, as I dreamed I was pregnant with him more than 10 years ago. Nate doesn't like the name. Not yet! I like a lot of girl's names, so I'll have to pick my favorite at the time.

Before we have kids we need to pay a bit more off our mortgage. It's just easier with two full-time jobs. But my job is making me very tired lately! Today was so busy... I would have a bath, but I don't have a book to read. I just read all my Harry Potter books for the 5th time, so it seems a bit silly to start them again. Don't feel like reading anything else. Can't have a bath without a book, though; that would be boring!

Okay, the bath is running and I'm reading Persuasion.
