Update from my desk: 04/08/2020

I won a Poetry Soup poetry contest for my poem Riding the Carousel! https://www.poetrysoup.com/me/ChristineB

Rainy day today. Yesterday was beautiful and sunny. Hoping to get some plants this weekend to spruce up the yard. It will all depend on the weather. I cried yesterday about it. This is going to be the first time in probably ten years that I buy my own flowers and vegetable plants. Usually Bob went with the kids for Mother’s Day, then last year because Bob had passed away Joey bought them all for me. Now Joey is gone too. David said he will buy them for me if I like him to. Not sure what I want to do yet!

Putting two pieces of furniture together today. I bought a cabinet for the living room, sort of to use as a liquor cabinet, since I don’t have one and honestly I need all the kitchen cabinet space I can get for kitchen stuff. The other piece is a pantry for the kitchen. Right now, after selling all of my furniture last year, I have nowhere to put containers and stuff like aluminum foil. I will use it for food too I presume. I will be busy with the building today.

My Blogging A to Z Challenge was themed: Education. It still is geared towards educating children but has taken on a bit of social education as well. I think it is important that we as adults handle this whole COVID-19 pandemic correctly with children so they don’t get overly traumatized.

I finished all of the book cases for my Bookstore miniature. Now I have to make ALL the little books. I just finished 10 little boxes that were in the directions. I will post pictures shortly.

Have a blessed day, stay indoors, stay away from others, stay healthy! And I offer you peace if you have lost someone to COVID-19.
