Man, oh man… Commissions are delayed, and events/important stuff/trips just keep coming my way. My mom’s immigration process is taking a lot of work. Even with all this going on, I’ve started to make an effort to do some things that are meaningful to me daily, because otherwise I’m not enjoying my days… 😞
I exercised plenty yesterday and today, did some more book outlining yesterday, made a good dinner too, and finished the first volume of The Rose Of Versailles. It’s definitely helping keep my spirits up and, of course, I also got a lot of commission work done, both yesterday and today, so at least there is progress.
Our date night was on the lazy side. We are both very tired. We had Publix chicken and watched TV, and that was a-ok. Sometimes, the simplest things can bring a lot of joy.
We also did a lot of deep conversing, which does not happen super often but I always enjoy. It invariably makes me feel closer to him and cements the bond we have. In a world where there is such little nuance, it really makes me happy to have someone with whom I can have serious conversations with –be it about religion, politics or other heavy topics, in a happy and calm manner. Even when we disagreed more than now, we still could talk about such things pleasantly.
Anyway, yesterday I went grocery shopping. In all our local stores, patriotic spirits are high!
That aside, our new goose, named Beetlegoose, arrived! The front of the house is definitely looking… well, let’s just say it rather matches the inside and the porch now:
Looking snazzy in his clown getup:
Christopher’s reaction was a mix of shock and resignation, bless him.
Everyone… meet the “bad boy” of my hug: this is Mudpie!
Mudpie is definitely the troublemaker among my bears. 😬 He isn’t as friendly, is always ready to pick a fight over anything, and tends to think everyone is against him. He is a regular cookie-thief. He sheds a bit and is self conscious about it.
Brioche generally follows after him and does whatever he says. He’s got a soft spot for Heidi, who likes him back, but he would never admit that.
