Here’s what’s been going on in my world.
In the News
There was a story in the news last week in a neighboring county. A man and woman were arrested because their house was so horribly filthy that someone thought they needed to be arrested. Here was the problem. Their children had flea bites (and other insects) all over them so much so the children’s health was affected. The children were dirty. And there was animal feces all over their house.
I don't judge anyone's housekeeping skills. That’s not my way.
Some people like it clean (their house), some not so much. I’m for the freedom to choose either/or. But, if you have children, you need to provide a clean and safe environment for them. CHILDREN SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF RESPONSIBLY.
And that’s all I have to say about it.
Clearly, I don’t feel like a complete woman unless I’m inhaling paint fumes because I'm always painting something. So, I have started a new project of painting the inside of my kitchen cabinets and pantry. They need to be painted—inside. So, this weekend I started painting the innards of my cabinets plus…I painted a bench. They're not finished.
I love painting.
I wish I didn’t love painting.
I wish I'd stop saying--painting.
I sewed a curtain for my office (work).
I wrote 500 words last week on a new short story, because my goal is to Write one Submit one each month. Now I know that doesn’t seem like much, but also…
I wrote on my posts for the A-Z Challenge in April. I’ve written A-N. They’re babies and need to grow up, but they’re born. When I wrote this post there were 496 blogs entered in the blogfest. You can sign up too here.
I have a theme. I have a post about my theme which I will share in March.
I have questions that came from personal reflection and observation this week.
1. Why are people mean to each other?
2. Why do people forget who they are when they fall in love? Is it love amnesia?
3. Why is chocolate not our U.S. Thanksgiving meat of choice?
4. And why isn’t turkey (the bird) a Valentine's Day gift choice?
5. Why are you guys so awesome?
It's Monday and...I'm OK with that. How about you?
