Interesting Flashback and the New Normal

So I was reading over my blog post from 1/2/20 about the Roaring 20’s.  What struck me first reading it was “Did Karma just say Hold my Beer?”.  Yet, here we are.

The President yesterday suggested a possible treatment for Covid-19 might be to inject disinfectants under the skin or standing in hot sunlight.

The MAGA protestors who want “control over their own bodies” (The Irony is lost on them) think that the Scientist are liars and believe only what Trump and Fox News feeds them.  In short they think this is all a hoax.  As of today, more than 50,000 dead Americans would disagree with the uneducated sheep.

This is how I shop now.  Gloved, Masked and 20 at a time.  Then I get to disinfect my groceries when I get home.  This is all right before I get into the shower and have a good “Silkwood” scrub down.

I believe in science and common sense.  I hope you too!

Sheltering-in-Place Activities

I thought I would have so much more time to read during Shelter-in-Place.  It turns out not so much.  All those projects I was ignoring (like the crap piled on the Dining room table) apparently were taunting me to finished them.  So I’ve been doing those things.

Really, I would prefer to read instead!

I was also doing photo shoots with my action figures, HA HA HA!

COVID-19 and the New Normal

Life will never be the same again.  Anyone who thinks that is a fool.  It was through our own arrogance that the pandemic we saw coming seemingly, to some, has obliterated our lives.  We thought America was too strong and noble to be a victim of this deadly plague sweeping across the globe.  We are foolish and now pay the price for being so.

Stay home as much as you can.  Protect yourselves with upgraded hygiene, masks and other protective measures.  If you have to work or better put,  are allowed to work then take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones.  For all those morons listening to their wealthy pastors telling them they need to come to church.  God….is everywhere.  One does not need to go to a structure for worship.  That little concept was made to ensure God became a business model.

Be safe people.  Don’t be stupid.  If you are stupid then your tombstone should reflect that stupidity when you die.  Only by being less selfish and more responsible can Americans survive this pandemic.  But alas, that has always been a character flaw with Americans and especially our sitting President.  Selflessness is a weakness and responsibility means finding someone to blame 😦  We are all responsible for the health and well being of our community.  My point is…don’t be a dick!

 

Weird Winter

So this winter has seen very little or no snow in my neighborhood.  It has been cold but those cold snaps always come in after the rain has left the area.  In some ways this is a good thing.  No shoveling so far but in other ways it’s kind of bummer.  No snow days from work.  No playing in the snow with the dogs.

No beautiful Snow pictures 😦

Today it will reach a high of 60 degrees…in February.  I’m not complaining that my heating bill isn’t enormous but I miss the fluffy white stuff.  Probably mostly for the pictures, lol.

The Heat Is On…Again!

I’m seriously not a fan of Summer.  In fact, once my vacation is over I’m like…bring on Halloween!

I did get my hair colored this week.  I went from Granny to Nanny in one Nice ‘n Easy moment, lol.

Since it’s hot as Hell in the ‘Burbs I went with these pictures to illustrate that I’ve turned into the devil from living in “Hot and Humid Hell”.

I can’t wait for vacation!

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

…and I’m stuck at work.

Why, oh why are the most beautiful days to enjoy the outside the days I must work.  Even getting outside for just an hour at lunchtime will be great but to think about Visiting The Arboretum for a few hours would have been way better 🙂

Last night’s rain cleared out the deep humidity and heat.  I will take it.  Then it’s back to deep summer temps again.  I guess it could be worse.  I could live in Europe where they just can’t get a break 😦

The Girl In The Bubble House

Because of my illness the extreme heat has been holding me hostage in my house.  Granite, not a bad place to be held captive.  I’ve got TV, Computer, Facebook, Angry Birds and the book IT that seems to be taking forever to read even though I’m on page 300, lol.

I’ve spent this time annoying the dogs…like a lot.  Now that the heatwave has snapped and it’s in the high 70’s I got outside.

Today I went to the eye doctor and had my pupils blown up for this picture, lol.    It kind of looks like I’ve had a stroke in this picture.  I assure I haven’t,  I just don’t photograph well 🙂  It’s supposed to rain until tomorrow so hopefully that will further cool things down.  For a bit there I felt like I was living on Mars…it’s hot there too, lol.

 

Summer Is Back

OMG…the weird weather is ratcheting up lately.  First it’s colder (53 degrees on Mother’s Day) then it’s as hot as July yesterday (88 degrees) what happens next, who knows?

I broke down and put the air conditioning on last night because it was 88 degrees inside the house and 77 degrees outside, WTH!?!

Then of course, I felt guilty for putting the AC on so early that I turned it off at 2 am.  We woke up to a warm house.  The masses did not like that very much.  So the AC goes back on.

Because of my disease (and my temperament) I don’t do well when it is hot.  In the winter coldness it’s easy to correct feeling the freeze with a blanket and a sweater.  In the heat months I can’t just strip down and not sweat.  That’s not how things work.  The only alternative is sitting in a cold shower for 4 hours.  So much for conserving water.

Also, I was breathing so much better with the AC on than with it off where I coughed with my allergies for 2 hours.

While at the Garden Festival yesterday I found this guy came way more prepared than me.  You rock it awesome Umbrella Dude!

I had a great time at the festival but eventually the heat was too much and I was red faced and lethargic, lol.  I went and sat in the air conditioned car while waited for the others.  Yup, 100% lightweight and proud of it, HA HA HA!

It’s going to be a long summer.
