We have entered very dark waters but let us not lose hope. Every day I wake with a sense of dread but by mid-day, I am fighting, spitting mad over the state of our country. There are many good people out there and I believe that good will triumph over bad. We have to believe that.
I have a few friends who are on the fence about voting. This is no longer Democrat vs. Republican. Heck, here’s some trivia for you. I used to be a Republican. I digress. Anyway, some are considering not voting. Not voting equates to a vote for the current administration. There are some issues that I feel need attention but I can’t turn a blind eye to how this current administration treats people in general. The name-calling, hiding behind religion when it fits the agenda, the lies, and backing QAnon conspiracy theories takes the cake. Oh, and I didn’t even mention the pandemic.
Think about that.
If I can get everyone up early enough, I am hoping to hit a new breakfast spot that my daughter found on Instagram. Later today, my youth group meets for frozen yogurt (outside, masks and distanced).
Not much planned. I have been slowly going through my garage which has become a dumping ground for the unwanted. I made some progress last week and hope to continue this week.
Because I am over the max for vacation time, I have this Friday and the following Monday off which I completely forgot about. I also have to put in more requests for time off for the holidays. A good problem to have. Of course, now that my son is in school and working full time I am not sure what Thanksgiving and Christmas will be like for him. Not sure he will be able to come home.
I fell into a little slump this past week so not much reading done. I will be reading Don’t Look For Me if I can pull my eyes away from the news.
Still watching Ratched on Netflix and it is good. It’s so beautifully shot and even though it’s a little much, it is exactly what you need if you want to be entertained.
I have seen a few of you mention The Home Edit. I love to organize and streamline so that may be my next show to watch.
- My son’s house that he is renting with his classmates was tented this weekend for termites. So grateful that the hotel he works at gave him a discounted rate so he’d have a place to go for three days.
- The sunlight streaming through my window. After those smoky skies, I am soaking up every drop of sunshine I can.
- Arnold Palmers. Because of the COVID 15 I gained, I have not been having wine so now and then I will enjoy an Arnold Palmer and the one I enjoy is low sugar. Nothing screams end of summer like a good iced tea / lemonade drink.
What has kept you busy these days? I started a notebook filled with easy dinner ideas so that when I go to the market I can just pick a few and shop accordingly. I tried it this past weekend and it worked great. Less stress.
Have a good week!
