I did this thinking I was not going to watercolor it…
I think maybe I liked it better that way!
This feels is a neverending crisis, made worse by our politicians
(yes I am looking at you Kate Brown).
The restrictions in Oregon don’t make sense logically…
Limited Thanksgiving dinner to 6 people, but then allow the
inane Black Friday sales to run rampant in big box stores but at 75% capacity.
So instead of 500 people at Target there will be 375…
Oh yeah, like that’s gonna work!
Kate Brown is beholden to someone with corporate funding.
This is going to result in more deaths, more lockdowns later and frankly,
I’m getting pissed because Mitchell and I both need to see docs
but won’t go right now with the numbers climbing daily.
We are still ordering groceries and washing every dang thing that comes to us…
We do this at the studio… we are spending so many hours there and
frankly can’t imagine washing them in the small kitchen at home.
This process that takes a day, seriously.
Craziness but the rules of engagement on this damn virus keep changing
and so we do what we do in an overabundance of caution.
Gibbs has fallen in love with beef and looks for teeny handouts now so anytime I am in the kitchen he thinks maybe just maybe I will cook steak and throw him a bite.
If I ignore him he bites me on the ankles or the bum.
I caught him siting slapping his tail against the floor
which Izzee thought was a plaything and kept jumping on…
He ignores her, intent on vibing me.
They make our life happy, among the only things
these days that make our life happy.
And feeding the birds!
A lot of what goes into my journal these days is writing…
Quotes that lift me, my own writing about things that bother me.
“Memory is more indelible than ink.”
Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
