Make someone’s day! – I didn’t actually intend to do that but it happened. There is a working woman at new gym. When I come in at 8 she is finished with her workout and getting ready for work. She showers, washes her hair and gets dressed. It’s not business casual either. By the time she is done, she looks like a million bucks. If anyone has ever tried to gussy up at a gym it’s not easy. She uses the dryer you put your hands under to dry her shoulder length hair. Yet it all works out very well. After admiring her routine for many months, I finally told her so. She was so stunned and grateful that I was sorry I hadn’t said anything sooner. If you see something nice, say something nice.
Gone boy! – Facebook became tedious during and after the US election. People hate and love and have no problem ripping other views with vile language. I tired of that fast and blocked anyone who posted obnoxious things. The last time I went on to block something there was a category “Hide all DT.” (that’s Donald Trump) He may not be gone from my life but he’s gone from my Facebook.
I’m getting old – My family reunion was yesterday. This year I agreed to make one of my mother’s specialties which my grandniece had been making in recent years. It’s a long and somewhat tedious process over two days but if you like cooking, it’s enjoyable. I was very organized. (I’m old! If I’m not organized I’ll forget ingredients!) It went like clockwork. By the end my back was aching. It’s been a long time since I stood for hours. My back wasn’t happy but my tummy was. I’m too embarrassed to admit how many samples I ate (just to make it was good of course!).
One of those days — I was getting ready for the reunion. The weather was all over the place. Sunny and warm in the morning, rainy and cool in the late afternoon. I bagged my original outfit for something warmer but it wasn’t comfortable. It was close-fitting flowered jeans that shrunk a bit when I washed them. I can still get them on and breathe but it’s not comfy for an event where you want to eat and drink your heart out. Got out some old jeans that fit the bill. Stretchy sweats were on my list next!
We’re off of the Insect Air Bnb! – The fruit flies have decided that perhaps we are not their best destination. I got out the decorative apple with the cider vinegar reservoir for their swimming pool and let them drown in their joy. Word must have gotten out. Either they are diving right in or they have stopped visiting. Either way I’m good.
