I have two half-posts ready for Tarot Tuesdays but they sound odd. They are not ready to publish. I may skip this week and get back to my scheduled Tuesday series next week.
I also have another post almost ready where I complain about a comment Penny made on The Big Bang Theory. It hit a nerve. Allow me to give you a glimpse: old people are ugly.
Ya… no. I’m not in the right mood to address this comment today. 😛
AND, I have a lovely photo post almost ready to publish describing my first venture out to lunch at an outdoor patio. That happened last week when I spent six days with mom in the suburbs. On a whim, we decided to go to the old part of town and have pizza. They renovated the entire downtown along the Lakeshore, and it was really cute to go wander around and find a place to have lunch after the excruciating 16+ months of being locked up like inmates.
Here’s the picture I posted to instragram which some of you have seen:
I haven’t been blogging much because I’ve been doing a million things away from my laptop.
For instance, today I have four baskets of clean laundry that I need to sort and put away. (Why do we have dressers? Why not just leave all the laundry in two baskets – one clean and one dirty? This would make life so much easier.)
I also had a whole slew of irritations today involving certain nameless family members and a repetitive comment about how the dog smells.
Long story short: Tucker’s had two baths today. The second one was done by me, and he no longer smells. He’s now in his prime spot surveying the street activity.
Thought I’d throw that out at you. Boo.
This morning, I was in the mood to continue my naughty story I started last week while watching the neighbourhood, but then I couldn’t get any solitude or quiet so I dressed up to go grocery shopping. Just because I haven’t had a chance to wear a new top I bought over 6 months ago.
Do I look stressed? I was stressed. This and that caused my stress and then, while driving, I realized I forgot the stupid mask. Do I turn around? I couldn’t, there was weird construction at the top of the street and I got wedged between pylons and an oncoming truck so I checked the glove box and found some disposable medical masks in a ziplock bag. Those backups came in handy for once. I wore those and I hate them worse than the cloth ones I typically use. My heart goes out to people who have to wear them for 8+ hours a day.
Is covid over yet? Blah.
Anyway, I’m still here, just not blogging as actively. But I do have an ulterior motive for dropping in on the blog today.
I have a few questions I want to pose for you:
Do you like the tarot series? I will likely continue it regardless for my own interest, but I’m curious how you feel about it.
How do you feel about locked story content? Meaning, how would you feel if some content was placed on a membership portion of the site, or locked with a password? I have lots of content I could share here, but I’ve been cautioned by some well-meaning followers that I give too much away for free…
How do you feel about a donation link (crowdfunding)? Donations means you can contribute what you feel is adequate for content you enjoy. Lots of people do this: artists, musicians, podcasters…
Do you like, and read, ebooks? I found myself buying or reading more ebooks while stuck in lockdown and appreciate the fact that I can adjust font size, lighting etc no matter when, or where, I read.
What app do you get your ebooks from? I get mine from Smashwords, Kindle and the library app.
Have you read my ebook The Man from the South? You don’t have to answer here or in public, but I would love to hear your thoughts. My email is in the contact tab. I stopped promoting it but would really appreciate a few more reviews. It’s listed at US $2.99 and now available on Kindle as well as others (see list).
Disclaimer: there is kink and some soft bdsm in the story. If you’ve read 50 Shades of Grey, it’s nowhere near anything like that, it’s much softer.
So, perhaps I will return to regular programming in the next days or weeks. School is coming to an end this week, my baby is graduating from elementary school (no grad trip, no grad ceremony, no party, only a zoom meeting boo) but, there will be cake. Everything chocolate fudge cake, as per her request. So, if I don’t die of diabetic shock, I’ll be back to regular blogging shortly.
See you in the comments.
