Weekend Check-*out* Check-in
Good morning:-) I am checking out for a day or two. Nothing personal to DS, but real life kicked my kneecaps pretty badly, and my spoon drawer is *empty*, so I'm taking a couple days to just isolate, read books I already knwo by heart b/c it's easy and soothing, and maybe if I get reallllly radical, watch TV. I have the health rights rally today---holding a sign in a wind is going to be fun (not)---but I caught Hubby's cold and between that, and some other crap? Yeah, bedtime for the puma. Hot fluids, bed rest, and Monday I up-and-at'em.
Or pretend I'm up and at 'em. Whichever.
Who is Roberto? It's the name of m ybaseball bat. For Roberto Clemente, a player who died when I was a tiny tot, but was one of my dad's fave players, so .... Do you name inanimate objects? Cars, etc.? The bat's about it for me, but our neighbor calls his Cooper Mini "Zelda". (Took me weeks to realize he meant the car and not a girlfriend. Ew.)
So check *this* out....
These are actual places on our planet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFdBNJsW46Y I vote massive (mental) road trip.
A few locations: What is that huge crystal mine in Mexico? Selenite crystals!
The flower fields? Just pretty cool.
The Bolivia site that looks like a mirror? Is a salt flat. Huge lithium salt reserves there, very valuable, and the layer of salt can, at the right angle, act as if it's a reflective surface in the right spots. (Most of it just looks like a big white flat, btw, anad is noted for its breeding flamingoes. Bright pink birds on white. Freaky, but true.)
There's a lake in Senegal that looks like Pepto-Bismol pink. It's highly saline, and the algae give it the pink color, which is most vivid in dry seasons. (Diluted, obviously, the water is less "pink".)
This video is a nice travelogue of just odd places: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZbWtUe5B3Q It's narrated, no need for your resident nerrd;-)
OK, off to rest up. Blessings, all.:-)
Good morning:-) Running a bit late, but 1. slept and 2. we have bees! Wild bees! A huge swarm! YAY! Bees! Pollinating little happy bees! They're settling near the creek (duh) b/c bees love water, but they're absolutely *infesting* flowers. You can hear them 20-30 yards away:-) It's been a few years, I get excited over such things.***Meanwhile, I was unfriended on FB by someone who felt I was...
I have been in constant pain since I was 14 years old (I am 22 now) and they have more recently officially diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. I have already tried several medications (they don't help in the slightest, they only make me vomit and depressed-which I'm never depressed even with this condition) and tried different types of exercise and I can't seem to find much relief if any. I just had...
I look at the news every day mulitple times a day and I see lots of articles saying people are angry, people don't like what he is doing, that he has lied so many times they have lost count and that people hate Trump. Then there are those who say that people should just 'give him a chance' to let him do what he said he would do and that anyone who doesn't is a "cupcake". But the bottom line...
I'm in EMDR therapy right now from some Trauma i went through when I was little and from some other traumatic things like being stalked by a kid. Which the guy who stalked me did it off and on for 3 years in 2015 of March i had told him if he didn't back off i would call the cops for sure and he stopped after that i haven't heard from him since but because of that the trauma that it caused was...
