I bounced back from that horrible day I had on Tuesday…thank goodness…it was awful. I talked to a friend later that night and she told me I needed to learn how to surf the energy waves, and knowing what the “energetic weather” is also helps. I don’t know how to do either of those things. She did perfectly put into words how I felt “I wanted to get outside of myself because myself was feeling to much”. That is exactly what I felt like and it made me feel a little better knowing that she was experiencing the same kind of feelings that day. Sometimes I feel like I am going crazy and I don’t like how that feels.
Yesterday was a much better day. I went on a little road trip with RD and found a few good finds. I didn’t take pictures of my thrift store finds but I did snap a picture of this creepy doll. I sent the picture to the girl and told her that I bought it for her. She knew better, still…. it was funny in my head and worth it to get the “yeah right” response.
We stopped at this little store, the sign said winery but that’s not what it was. It was a little gift shop that sold some wine and other bottles of alcohol. I did find the greatest cups there. I bought one for myself and one for my dad’s wife. She likes coffee and would benefit from the Reiki. I have never seen anything like it.
RD dropped me off at home and I jumped in my car and went to pick the girl up from school. I was hoping to talk to the kid about my logo because he hasn’t been at the coffee shop these past few Wednesdays. I saw that he had sent me an email when I was waiting for the girl. I can’t express in words how much I love what he drew up for me. It’s beyond perfect! The detail is incredible, he has so much talent. While I appreciate his skills as a barista and I enjoy my coffee that he makes for me….he needs to do more with his talent. I can’t wait to have new business cards made up!You are seeing it here first…..Mad Concoctions new logo. I love it! I can’t wait to put it on everything.
Once I picked up the girl we went to meet BV at her daughter’s house. The girl is dog sitting this weekend. Three dogs…all boys…not my kind of fun but it’s right up her alley. I’m excited because I get to do all of my laundry while I hang out with the girl on Saturday. It will be nice for the girl to have some money of her own so close to Christmas.
While I was there I had my first experience with an alpha male. The dogs are three sizes, small, medium, and large. The large dog is the oldest and the alpha. We were in the basement learning where the dog food was and the crates for two of the dogs. I leaned against the wall and crouched down petting the medium dog. The alpha stops drinking out of the small dog’s bowl and walks over and with his side, body slams the dog out of the way and his face is in my face saying “no…pet me.” I was like…what just happened? He waits for the other dogs to pee so he can pee over it…this is all new to me. The girl was a little nervous to be spending the night in a strange house by herself until she met that dog. She feels completely safe now and she gets to watch cable all weekend.
I dropped the girl off at her dad’s and ran to Hobby Lobby. The boy bought a signed print so I thought I would get it framed for him for Christmas. He wanted to see it first so I sent him his choices. That kid does not like red and while I stand by my first choice as being the best…..it is his present so back to square one.
I stopped at another little store that I don’t usually go into because I was over that way and I found little boxes of shortbread cookies from Scotland that I picked up for my Hogmanay party next month. Wait…..I didn’t tell you that yet. Sunday, after watching this weeks Outlander, I felt inspired to throw a Outlander themed holiday party. While Hogmanay is traditionally New Year’s Eve I had to adjust the days to accommodate my peeps. Saturday the 16th will be the day. Now I have to go back to the library and take out the Outlander cookbook again.
I came home and dragged out all of the things I have purchased over the last few months and sat and wrapped them and made sure they were marked off of my list. Hobby Lobby has some really nice heavy duty wrapping paper on sale this week for 50% off. A 100 square foot roll only costs $4.00.
Is it hypocritical that I won’t let Force of Nature Girl play Christmas music yet and I am wrapping presents? I hope not because I made her turn it off today….it’s too early. I am only trying to get my stuff organized and in one place.
I am still writing and doing my best to participate in nanowrimo. It’s still not enough but at least I am working on my story again…..Zia
