1. The Mad Scramble

I shot the video with an iPhone and the 8 mm app. The editing was done using the Splice app. Nova Rain added the voiceover.

2. All this ice-0-lation, self reflection and meditation is bearing fruit. I flipped out some in the last few days. Melancholy! Confusion! At loose ends. Adrift. Then boom. With the help of a friend I peeled off a huge, tough, nasty layer from my onion. “The unbearable lightness of being”. Growth is difficult. But I am better now. Closer to nobody.

3. I’ve been trying to get my oil and filters changed since January 2020. I’ve been turned away once. SpeedCo didn’t have the oil filter. That is just not true. There was some other reason. Beats me. I may have found a good local place. Maybe during July WHQ will be well lubricated once again.

Thanks 😊 so much for coming by and interacting. You brighten my day and bring joy to my heart. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. I love you.

Favorite Finds in May

7 Comments

1. I really enjoy a tin of sardines with a few crackers. However, if I pulled this one open I would be inclined to run away screaming.
Looks like they have had enough.

Angry Fish

2. Magna tiles are great fun. It’s so easy to build things with these unusual magnets.

3. I am really enjoying playing Scrabble. It provides an additional way for me to interact with others and meet new people.

Scrabble Go


4. Delicious U-Pick strawberries from Sugar Hill Farm in Verbena AL. I also got some farm fresh tender yellow zucchini and squash, and a huge head of broccoli. Total was $16. I’m a happy camper.

5. I’m starting the Plastic Challenge on June 1. Join me.

6. I like the sentiment. It’s time, past time, to rebel against the oligarchy in America.
I do not know the source of this image. If you do, let me know and I’ll give appropriate credit to the artist.

Card for This Day

2 Comments

Archangel Michael says that fear is the only thing interfering with your happiness and plans. He wants to show you how to release any worry or dread so you can feel safe and secure. This card indicates that you’re ready to let go of control issues and trust that everything ultimately works out for the best.

Possible Meanings of This Card: You’re going in the right direction • You deserve all that is good (just as we all do!) • Allow yourself to receive love, support, and abundance • You are loveable

Prayer: Archangel Michael, please help me feel safe and deserving of your guidance. Thank you for clearing me of heavy, toxic, or ego-based thoughts or feelings.

My take away? I must continue to abandon the illusion of control and the fear that follows it.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God….” ~ Romans 8:28

The universe provides.

100 Days Project

Days 43 – 49

I used the Google Arts and Culture app to morph this photo into Keith Haring’s style.

Day 43

I am weary of Covid’s trash. I am weary of Covid in general. However, I am adapting to my new Covid Common Era life and it’s not so bad.

Day 44

Here I am in Paradise during the CCE and this holly plant thinks it is fall. Or maybe it is in harmony with the newly sick since Alabama has opened up again.

Day 45

The view out my bedroom window.

Day 46

I’m not sure what this plant is doing. Every time I bury its roots it climbs back out.

Day 47
Day 48
The neighbors
Day 49
The big heron wasn’t around. This was his fill-in.

DISCARDED BOTTLE CAPS

Rusty bottle top

While I’ve been enjoying my ice-o-lation in Paradise I have been into photographing bottle caps.

Green bottle top
Rusty bottle cap
The last one in this series. I drank this Shiner Bock and posed the cap on an old wooden picnic table.

Except for the Shiner Bock, these caps were all on the ground in Paradise. I saw them and photographed them on my morning walks. The Shiner Bock cap was disposed of appropriately.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

My Memorial Day Weekend

May 23
A 4 mile walk
Worked on my art projects
Drummed and practiced ukulele
Meditation for a few hours
Made veggie food
Hung out with my friend
Journaled
Thought different thoughts as much as possible.

May 24 began with a 2 mile hike. At a distance I had a conversation with a fellow hiker. There was a lot of yelling. hahahaha She was walking a beautiful white dog.
After I returned to WHQ, I enjoyed a cup of iced coffee and a mandarin for breakfast, some journaling, and a life threatening trip to the Beeswax convenience store and grill. No masked shoppers other than me. Most people abided by the social distancing guidelines. The floor of the entire store was marked off in 6’ intervals. Sad as it is, I risked my life for a beer run.

May 25
Memorial Day
I started the day with coffee and a banana at 5 am.
Next was a 3 mile hike down by the lake.
The sunrise was lovely this morning.

Lay Lake

I encountered this turtle. I apologized for interrupting it’s journey. I like to believe that crossing paths with a turtle is a positive omen bringing happiness.

Turtle

As I continued I came upon a Killdeer nest. I am amazed at them. It surprises me that the eggs survive.

Lunch was a far cry from the standard Memorial Day BBQ with family and friends. Cabbage soup and a beer for me today. I do miss my mom’s pound cake on occasions like this.
Feeling kind of alone on this holiday. It’s because I pick it.

The dream: I dreamed I was driving and I knew something wasn’t quite right. The passenger pointed it out too. Seems the car had started slowing rising into the air. We drifted near the wall of a Walmart store and used the bricks to pull the car back down. Then we got out. Oddly adults didn’t float but the one child in the car began to drift away.

Scene 1:
I pulled the 5 of Water, Clinging to the Past, from the Osho Tarot deck. Such a great card for living in the Covid Common Era. The pre-Covid past exits only in our minds. The post-Covid future exists only in our minds. The present flits by into the past. If we stay in our minds, we will miss our lives.

Cling to the Past Tarot Card

Scene 2:
To embrace both the sorrow and joy is difficult in these times of upheaval. As warriors we feel the pain while we continue to shine the light.

QOTD: “Hold the sadness and pain of samsara in your heart and at the same time the power and vision of the Great Eastern Sun. Then the warrior can make a proper cup tea.”
-Chogyam Trungpa

Scene 3:
An RV washing man came by. We struck a deal. He is washing my RV and my jeep for $225. This includes the awnings. I’m happy. 🕺🏽 WHQ is clean.

You bring joy to my heart. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. I love you.

Curbside Pickup

6 Comments

I’m trying curbside pickup at the local grocery store. I called yesterday to get the scoop on how small town USA curbside pickup works. I’m calling in my order, they will do the best they can, and they will call me back with the total.

The list:

  • Green bell pepper X
  • Cucumber X
  • Bag o carrots X
  • 4 Roma tomatoes X
  • 4 green bananas X
  • Bag of yellow onions X
  • Celery hearts X
  • Bag o apples X
  • 5lbs potatoes X
  • Big jar dill pickles X
  • Jif Crunchy peanut butter C
  • Canned pineapple X
  • Canned pears X
  • Raisins
  • 3 small cans tuna in water X
  • onion soup mix X
  • Bouillon cubes X
  • Bay leaves X
  • Small bags of flour and cornmeal
  • Cooking oil 32oz
  • TP X (I was surprised it was available)
  • SOLO style cups
  • Bug spray
  • Liquid dish detergent X
  • Graham crackers or saltines. X
  • 2 Diet Coke X
  • 2 diet DP X
  • Sharp cheddar X
  • Hoop cheese X
  • 1/2 gallon low-fat milk X
  • Almond milk X
  • Men’s multi vitamins
  • Guinness stout

The items with an “X” are the items that were available. The employees did a great job. It was as safe as possibly. The grand total for this adventure was $88 and change and should feed me for 2 or 3 weeks. When I got home I wiped down some things with a Lysol wipe, others got a soapy bath, and a few others were put in isolation for a week.

All loaded up

Thank you so much for stopping by. I really appreciate the likes and comments. Much love. Stay well. ❤️
