It Wasn’t Too Bad

I was worried about today….There have been a lot of changes as of late so it was a tricky situation to go on vacation now. Unfortunately it was a use it or lose it situation, I can’t take all three weeks at the end of the year. I did get a ton accomplished and not one of them was on my list but that’s how it goes sometimes. There were only two maybe three mistakes that were big ones so now I have some clean up to do but on the whole…I was expecting a lot worse. By the time I go on vacation again in October some things will be set in place which will hopefully leave less room for error. I hope!

Yesterday I had a great day with SB. We drove down to Ikea and visited some shops around the area. She had suggested the artisan festival that we usually attend but I said no. Honestly? I don’t think I will ever go back. Not only did they want you to wear a mask outside but they hired a security team and had the sheriff’s office on hand. First of all….I have at least five blind spots when I am wearing the stupid mask. There is no way I could safely navigate tree stumps and ruts in the road while wearing it. Second of all…you want to police me? Yeah…no thank you. Like I said, I don’t think I will ever go back! I missed it but I also didn’t waste any money on things I didn’t really need.

I hung out with KB on Thursday which was a rare treat. It was nice to sit and talk outside without many interruptions. Her new little puppy is now a really large puppy who likes to eat napkins but he was pretty good when we were outside. This little lady showed up during my visit.

It was a nice reminder to be still instead of feeling the need to be productive all of the time. So Friday I hung out in the pool next store, meditated and finished up on a few loose ends. I really did get a lot of things done that I have been putting off.

Wednesday after a disappointing visit with the dentist….because of the “reaction” I had when trying a new food…my own fault…my gums on the right lower side swelled again a couple weeks ago. It’s been a long time since that happened and I can 100% say that whatever this Lyme not Lyme thing is…it has causde my oral issues. The dentist said my gums were stabile now but after seeing how quickly they could turn, he is referring me to a periodontist. It was very disappointing.

I came home, went next door and swam with the neighbors to try and take my mind off of it. After the pool I started working on my coffee table. Do you remember back in 2017 when I found it at the ReStore for a mere $30.00?I finally got around to painting it. The Girl tried to help me once, bless her heart but once again it was the wrong color. I have never touched the painting under the glass and it is impossible to match so I stopped trying and I think it finally worked!I put on Outlander and started painting. I had had a strange dream the night before, not about Jamie but there was definitely a kilt in there somewhere. The pumpkin on the table was my compromise with the Girl. She would full on decorate for Fall if I let her. Do you remember the tchotchke lamp I bought a while ago?After the cat chewed through the cord…which he never does…I questioned my purchase. It wasn’t so much the lamp itself I loved but all of the components. I will make many things from this lamp and the first is the piece holding the pumpkin up on the coffee table…I love it!  Like I said….I finished up a lot of old projects. Now it’s back to work. I hope I find the discipline (did you laugh at that) to keep up the pace…or at least stay on top of it. ….Zia

    Comment first on these masks …. I WILL NOT COMPLY! How utterly stupid to force people to wear masks outside. This is SO out of control and it is not for our benefit, believe me. I’m with you, Zia. I hear you. To give you some encouragement, when I went to my GP’s office I vented loud with the F word sprinkled generously about in my words, leaving no doubt how I felt about all this stupidity. The PA not once was taken aback, or got angry, but rather her “attitude” she agreed with me. The subject was gyms and out of her own mouth she said it is dangerous to wear masks while working out AND that it is hard enough sitting, talking and walking with a mask on. She also inferred that she understands the LIES we have been told. Not all in the office was on her page …. some, the sheeple, still are sipping the coolaid.

    LOVED both your table and your lamp. I want to do so much in my own home but I’ve given up that hope, not with all these cats we have. Try putting some lemon on the chord your cat chewed. That ought to stop him from chewing. Odd that he did that. There is always a reason and I urge to figure it out.

    Hanging out avoiding this madness is the BEST thing possible you can do for yourself. Disconnect from the “carrot in front of the donkey” narrative and make your own narrative the way YOU want. I will not allow anyone to force me to be anything other then me. These masks irk me and are ILLEGAL to enforce. I’ve been very into law lately and follow some people who are too and believe me what is being done is not legal.

    Always ….. Stay strong and be independently you. Thank goodness there are people in this world who are not willing to get caught in the spider web of today.

    Love to you!! xo

      Thank you for your kind words! Yes, yes, yes about the masks!!! I had a frame rep come in today and because he was in the dispensary and there were no patients, I told him he could take off his mask. He called me an angel and down the rabbit hole we went. It’s scary to think that I was the first person he has come across in this line of work that doesn’t believe in the masks. We both had lots to say, it’s a good thing we close at noon or we would have talked longer. We may be few and far between but I am finding more and more of us.
      Thank you for the tip about the lemon. Mostly he is good about things like this? I can only guess it was because it was an old cord? I have often thought about getting another cat but it’s things like this this that hold me back. I guess for now one Boy, one Girl, one dog, and one cat is enough for me. I hope you have a beautiful day my friend! Stay strong and continue being the beautiful soul that you are!! xoxo

        People are WAKING UP, Zia. I’ve been finding them as well! Here in NY so many of us are just so FED UP. And for good reason! Today in my reader for example, I found a post that is honestly from an alternate universe, yet it is right here on earth. We are deliberately not being shown the majority of the world for the majority of the world is not in the throes of tyranny as we are in the USA. I am SO DONE with this crap. Look >>>

          I agree! I don’t know who is pulling the strings or what the agenda is…but I’m over it. The link you shared made me smile. I have often thought about meeting some of my fellow bloggers some day. Maybe when this mess is over? My sources say mid January but only time will tell. Have a beautiful weekend my friend!
