Broken In……

The girl is officially broken in as a babysitter….She is currently over at the neighbors where she is babysitting two out of the three boys. I went with her initially, which was weird but she has anxiety and wasn’t sure what to say. I left after instructions were given..this wasn’t my gig. Nobody came with me to my first babysitting job and I was twelve watching a three month old. She is twenty watching a five and a seven year old. The seven year old? Is completely adorable and while you don’t have favorites with your own kids…you can with the neighbor kids. 

She was there about an hour when she called me….the little one threw up. Crap! My favorite wanted popcorn so I made popcorn at home while the girl cleaned up the nasty germs next door and I went over. I brought my homemade Onguard sanitizer, my little diffuser with Onguard and the requested non GMO popcorn. I put my favorite in charge of the hand sanitizer and he was loving that, I even told him he could keep it. I was making a new one to send to my brother so now I will make two…no biggie. The poor girl….what a way to break in a new babysitter. I never had to deal with throw up back in the day…just poop.

It’s a good thing I just made a batch of elderberry syrup…I will be making the girl take a double dose when she gets home. I have been taking it three times a day since Wednesday. I have homemade chicken soup simmering on the stove right now….I do not want the bug that has been going around. Speaking of bugs…..my brother feels better. I am still worried but he assures me that he is on the mend. I will be happy when he is all the way better.

Today I took a create and meditate class where we made mandalas. I loved it! I can’t wait to make more. In the right setting this really could be a tool for meditation. I made this today…

My friend Mountain Woman really wants to learn so tomorrow when I go and buy a compass (the math kind..that makes circles) I will show her how. This class was worth every penny of it’s $15.00 price tag. Maybe I will show you too….

I was supposed to go to a genealogy event at the library today. I even talked about it at the mandala class. I was really looking forward to it. I don’t know where my brain was at 2:30 though….I totally forgot. I was really bummed at 3:30 when I remembered. Still kicking myself…..

Yesterday was a beautiful day for January in Ohio. It was so nice….and sunny that I was able to take my lunch nap in my car. I cracked the windows and occasionally heard a bird…they were few and far between, but they were there. The thaw was creating the sound of a gently moving water. This crate….

Is right next to where I park my car. My Friday lunch nap gave the illusion of a small stream on a warm and sunny day. I really could have stayed in my car all afternoon soaking up the vitamin D. Today we are back to the overcast Ohio gloom and doom. The SAD season is more than half way over….I can do this….Zia
