Good Morning Coffee Talking Friends!

I have tried to pop in quickly this week but I've not been around much so it's been super quick posting, or meme's - or nothing at all. 

It's been 'one of those weeks' - the kind where you almost have to try to wrap your brain in a candy coated shell to protect it as you have just had enough... of everything. 

This morning I'm still arguing with myself a bit but I'm pretty sure I'm going to go run a couple errands for groceries and household goods.  That side of me usually wins the argument - the side that says "find the money and make it work" because having a well stocked refrigerator, freezer and pantry is worth its weight in gold.  I'll have to 'rob Peter to pay Paul' so to speak (does anyone say that little vintage quip anymore?) but I have less anxiety when I know our larders are full.  (Another old, vintage little quip for you again.)   

And we'll need dog food soon.  Which is really the catalyst for the trip.  I had myself talked OUT of going grocery shopping this weekend but the dog food is the tie breaker on the argument between myself and... myself.  If I had to buy dog food anyway, I might as well find the funds in the budget to make it a regular stocking-up kind of trip.  With the crazy world the way it is right now, you can never go wrong having a well stocked home with the food, medicine, household goods and items you regularly need.


If you see your glass as half empty, pour it into a smaller glass and stop bitching.


Yep - anal swabs for Covid testing.  How did our government allow our US diplomatic officials in China to have to go through with this?  Our previous president would have said "Oh, hell no you won't...."    Sigh.
