Morning all, have to take a medical day today. So this is a ‘canned’ post. I’m writing this on Feb 5th 2022. The reason I pre-write is so that I can take a day or two when the pain or the body say, yeah no, stay in bed. Avoid the desk today. So, that’s what I am doing.
The good news is that the coffee is hot, even if the wind is cold, right? I have GOT to stay away from craft and hobby stores, I swear to God. They give me too many ideas, and holy crap, I’m screwed then.
Going back a bit, I went into Joanne’s fabrics. I actually was going to jump down the rabbit hole, and buy a few goodies there for my sewing empire, but gladly decided not to do so. Here’s why. I took one look at the prices and about dropped my teeth.
I don’t have dentures. I have all intact teeth, no cavities… So, back to the story.
I did get to see what I will be buying ftf so to speak though, and not on a screen. There’s a darning egg, and a couple of ironing hams, and a specialty this and a nifty that. What they didn’t have, or carry, Amazon certainly does.
What impressed me the most though, was how the staff member who checked my drawing pencils out for me was treated. She was my age, and was kind to me, however, she had called on the horn to be relieved at her till because she had to relieve herself. It was also time for her break.
Since I only had 4 things, she ran my order through quick, but I could tell by her posture that she was getting desperate. Her cow-irker finally showed up, and as she handed me my receipt, I Thanked her and wished her well.
The reason I really noticed the situation? That same cow-irker had been standing doing nothing with a gaggle of hens at the cutting table. Even though my reach is short, I knew better than to ask for help in their store. I’d never been there before.
I’m really enjoying my new pencils and such, and I also have a funny eraser that is battery operated from Amazon as well. My sketchbooks come from the dollar store, and I am having a blast with the toys.
Sewing and knitting and such need to take a short break, till the pain eases up enough. Meanwhile, my Amazon wish list has grown exponentially since then. And I’m thinking of expanding the list. Take care all, huge hugs. Even if I am not ‘here’ today, I wish you well and many blessings. -L
