Okay fellow bloggers, I don't send email to my subscribers or followers. Is there anything I need to change regarding the feedburner thing?
Today I was perusing that online consignment store known as Poshmark. Because my favorite store is completely closed I figured I would see if I could find some like new or close to new tops from Christopher and Banks (preferrably from the same seller to save on shipping), along with jewelry.
I also looked at some home stuff because round here thrift stores which are many and good are very crowded and I have not yet quite been willing to step into the proverbial abyss. Fear not, all clothes get washed, and all jewelry cleaned with alcohol before use. I haven't quite pulled the trigger yet, but I have put together a couple of bundles, with the shirts being in the nine dollar range. I just need to make that last step.
I got fabric, but am glad I did the five dollar Joanne special for my first fabric foray of stuff to bring home. I love the orange and think I'll actually move more towards those kinds of prints or batiks for the other colors, and the yellow and green will work for now. I also love the sunflowers although they are a bit darker (I definitely don't want dark or jewel tones and I am not a neutrals person. I want light and airy. If I though my heavy furniture could support it, I'd be that beach vibe decorator). But I realized I do have a fair amount of turquoise decor after living in a home with that color of walls, walls and need to incorporate such-like my candles. So since I have quite a bit of this butterfly fabric (or I can get more of it) I'm moving to that as the main print. The green is hard to find in the print, but I can adjust the colors to match, and vary them as I need to. Tis from rom the same fabric collection as the sunflower.
On a side note, I've decided to offer up some of the things I make for sale. I'm about to make as set of patriotic decor for me (bowl fillers, wreath and banner, wall art) and post it online with the note that I can customize or change. If it sells I'll let it go, if not it will be my decor. We'll see how that goes.
A large majority of the people I have "met" (mostly online at this point) since I moved are younger and not retired. I'm sure there are more retirees to meet as I go to the daytime exercise classes, and quilting group and the retiree high tea with my church, but I have not yet them yet in person. I know there are younger more mobile types living in this vast community but with everything shut, the chance to meet other than the occasional wave while walking has been limited to date (and I am not just looking to meet people my age). I am ready to open up and meet others. Not that I am minding the multi-generational group/vibe so far. That's very much my thing as well. I turned down an invite to an opening event for a candidate to our city council today and tomorrow I am doing art on the patio (well distanced) with a bunch oft twenty and thirty and forty somethings who draw. I joked that I'll be the gray haired one knitting.
Next week my second day trip among the Texans is to lavender fields or bluebonnets. Decision not made yet.
Son finally got a vaccine. On Sunday he got the J and J, and then of course all the hooplah. He had almost no side effects and is keeping track of himself so I am not inordinately worried.
You'll love this one. The apartment complex has opened up it's age guidelines a bit, and there is now a fifty-ish fellow who owns his own tiling business living above me. I mentioned something to my daughter I about the very nice "younger guy". She just stared at me. I was thinking I was happy to have more active people around (my particular building seems to be mainly inactive people who need some help as opposed to some of the other buildings, not sure why), and when I man active I mean Barbara's level, lol. She is forty and I guess still thinks as fifty five as older. Just wait!
Oh, I also see that they've now allowed some younger people in, as they had long term empty apartments. So we have a young couple with a child and a dog who are lovely down the wayside.
