It is that kind of day again.
The kind where I am so glad for
my Bloggy friends.
Being able to come here and just talk
as if we were sitting in my living room
brings me joy.
The beauty for you is that if you are not
in the mood for my ramblings you can
just close the window and
you are free.
Pretty good arrangement
if you ask me.
Sunday night was interesting.
Mom, Georgia and I went to a church
in Hanover to surprise my cousin, Ethan.
He and his girlfriend were participating in
a concert with their college from Indiana.
So, while an hour and half was a bit of a
distance it was a lot closer than going to Indiana.
They were very, very good.
Ethan plays the cello....beautifully!
We were glad we went.
They were so surprised to look out
during the concert and see us.
On our way back to the car we had to
cross a street.
It was there that we nearly lost Georgia
to a speeding car!
Man, did that get our attention.
I am so thankful that the car went over into the
other lane and did not hit her.
Then we stopped at a convenience store to use
restrooms and get a snack.
As I got out of the van and had just closed
the door a very large, very tall man
It was dark where we had parked and
it was him and me between two cars.
He asked for money to put gas in his car
so he could get home.
There was a sneering look on his face.
Something didn't feel right, at all.
So I informed him that I was broke and
that we were just there to use the restroom.
Only for some reason I used the word "potty".
I think I was trying to be a bit humorous or throw
him off balance or something.
All I know was that he was very threatening
and I felt in danger.
What surprised me was that I never stopped
moving toward him and he backed off.
After the fact I have thought that I could have
offered to go in and pay for a specific amount
of gas on his pump or something ....
but all I could think then was to get away.
It was a bad situation.
Yesterday I asked my Facebook buddies what
they would have done.
Most of them said they
would have given him a couple
Some felt that he was just
wrong to approach a woman
under those circumstances.
What do you think
you would have done?
As to my goals for yesterday...
I made progress but didn't get it
I remembered that I needed to
revamp the candle website since I am
moving all sales to Etsy.
That took a bit of time and then
there was the fact that I hadn't listed any new
items for a while and so I made a couple
of unique pieces.
This grouping of votives came to be because as
I was cleaning I came across them and it
helped clean and made a nice package
to put some Oceans scented wax in them
and list them.
They came out great!
|Photos of the candles in process are over at the candle website.|
And then there was this sweet piece of glass
sitting on the counter.
It was crying out to be a
6 ounce citrus infusion
So, that was pretty much where my cleaning
got sidelined but I did get a lot done in the
refrigerator, many dishes done,
a cheat kind of floor cleaning and
then it was time to take Chelsea off to work.
I then visited my friend, Roxanne who has
It was good to see her...
and Mister, the dog.
I came home to make dinner for the men
and then ran back out to pick up our friend, Emma,
and then Chelsea and head off to a graduation meeting.
While there I got drafted to help the grads work on
their class song.
Never intended for that to happen....
but while it was awkward to step into
a situation in process
it was actually fun.
Well, I have chatted and chatted,
if you are still here
I applaud you.
Have a wonderful day!
