Hi everyone! We have been without internet for 3 days and after the itch of addiction subsided, we got busy. It’s been a very productive 3 days.
Thank you all for the love and support in all matters, I’m so happy to see most of you have found the blog and channel and I feel the joy returning to my work. I have some fun ideas to share about the homemaking, decorating on a budget, stocking the pantry, writing a novel in a month, and how to get your garden ready for next Spring. I posted on the channel last night and in a few days I have some good fun as I am redoing my kitchen and pantry and did a large stock up of bulk foods and canned goods. Coming soon!
In the meantime, California is on fire, fire, fire. I am so upset about the forest but perhaps it’s a Universal cleansing, Mother Earth is doing some purging herself. Who knows, I just keep the windows closed, the air purifier on, and a bag packed and all the things we will need if we have to evacuate.
Make sure and get what is called “Reverse 911” on your cell phones. This is how the town will alert you to situations and keep the local channels or radio on.
So, turning half a century here and I’m loving it. I know we have fires and thick smoke, still have the corona and political drama…but I have had the best talks with strangers in the grocery store over the last few days. My joy and energy has returned and, despite the worries over nature and the future for us all, I feel like it will all work out for the best in the end.
For my birthday I feel like just continuing the inner journey and outer work of getting the home in order. I may have a little gathering with friends that don’t mind socializing right now. I may find a lamp or two for the living room as the house is very dark when overcast with smoke and I’m realizing winter may make for a dark house.
I don’t want or need anything (I’m still getting rid of things). What I would like to do is thank all of you by giving away a pile of ebooks all month. Go on Amazon and you will find my author site and most of the ebooks will be free or . 99 cents. Each book is up for the taking for five days and then the next five days will feature a new set and so on until the end of the month.
This will start this morning. Here is one of many books.
Remember, stay off the news, start your morning with brewing coffee, candles, and a good book or music.
