Had a bit of a rough start last week....there were some very frustrating things going on at work. I think my co-workers thought I was going to lose it and start yelling expletives! Something like this....
You should know I kinda swore myself out by the age of 20 so swearing is not something I do anymore.
But sometimes, you just gotta say it....
I was biking home and I passed a man sitting in his car in a parking lot. He was not yelling but just stating an exasperating fact. I will use replacement words here, and you are all smart people, so you will figure it out.
"Duck......duck, duck, ddduuuccck!"
Thank you stranger, I understand completely.
One time I was driving around with a girlfriend who was so angry at a situation she was about to blow So I just cried: "JUST SAY IT!!!"
So she did - good and loud.
My mother, who was working shift work at the time was trying to get some sleep. We kids, all 4 of us, were making a ruckus and she came stomping down the stairs.
"Spit in Well! Will you kids shut up!!!" Yup - she just had to say it.
But frustrations don't last forever, things eventually turn around.
Yesterday, after a week of mitten wearing cold, the weather finally turned around and I hopped back into my shorts and basked on the deck.
I mowed the lawn, topped up the fountain and the bird feeders.
I cleaned the bathrooms and washed up the bedding with fresh sheets.
I love fresh sheets.
I made some killer chocolate chip cookies.
We went to this very cool building and checked out quartz for the island that Sheldon is working on.
I was fascinated with the structure. Would this not be a great place for a photo shoot?? And the quartz was pretty nice too...
Then we headed out to Campbell's Orchards for fresh vegetables. I bought garlic, a jalopeno pepper, a bushel of apples and a pie pumpkin which will be turned into homemade applesauce and pumpkin puree for pumpkin pie, or pumpkin thai soup or whatever.
Finally I bought myself this delicious caramel apple
So, the moral is, if someone is having a bad day, they may have to let it rip. No judgement here, happens to all of us. Things will turn around - the weather will change, the sheets will be fresh, and there are caramel apples to eat.
