Howdy! One of my customers reminded me this morning that some doomesdayer predicted that today would be the last day for us all and so far it's been pretty much the same as any other Saturday for me, how about you?
However, I keep seeing a bit of continued moral decline in our culture. On some days I want to take down my gift box display behind the counter and list the 10 Commandments. I don't care what religion anyone is, it's just that if we all followed those 10 (come on people, you can do anything else just not those 10 things) and we would all be able to live happily together as they are actually more like laws of "getting along" if you think about it. Here's a couple of things that have happened recently here where my shop is:
What we found when we came back after the New Year's weekend. Some gang members tagged our van that was sitting in our back parking lot. We used some special remover on it but it took some of the gray paint off, too. Someone also tried to remove the van's registration tag but I cut into it with an exacto knife when I put it on month's earlier so if someone ever tried to steal it it won't come off in one piece and then they can't use it. So ha, ha on them!
When I opened the front door of the shop this past Monday, I saw that someone (that is crazy) stole the 15 year old dirty mats from in front of the Acupuncture's doorway as well as mine. Two door mats?? Really? Of course, I called the Sheriff's Dept. on both of these incidents so they would know what is going on in the neighborhood.
On another note, I've been bra shopping and it has been horrid. Even at Nordstrom, there isn't a bra that fits right. I tried on every bra they had in my new size and came home twice with bras that I eventually returned. So until I can fit into my other bras, I'm going to continue to wear my soft ones and lose more weight. I've been doing good on my diet. It consists of eating less carbs, more protein and basically eating everything I want except eating less of it. I have tremendous will power when I put it into action. So mid section menopause chubbiness, watch out, you are going to disappear!
This afternoon and tomorrow will consist of continuing the garden planting and to de-clutter the kitchen and refinish the floor board and maybe I'll get to sewing the little curtain that will go above the sink.
Here's a couple pics of the rose tree my mom and I planted about 19 years ago. Every now and then I cut off a couple buds and they fill my backroom with a heavenly scent!
Wherever you are, I hope you have lovely weather and can get outdoors and enjoy some fresh air!
