“What do you do when disappointment comes? When it weighs on you like a rock, you can either let it press you down until you become discouraged, even devastated, or you can use it as a stepping-stone to better things.”
Another beauty of a day is ahead. I got sidetracked yesterday. I had planned to blow out and prep some fiber to be shipped out yesterday but got word that FB was removing or deactivating anyone’s accounts who supported our current President vocally. I’ve been doing that so I wanted to get my page contents off of there. But how? I have over 10 years of content to remove. Seems impossible. Or maybe I just hadn’t asked the right questions to the right person. I started laboriously trying to copy and paste each post individually and got I think 3 posts transferred to here in their entirety. But oh wow, how would I do more?
Enter my friend Treasure. Knower of all things. She is quickly reducing the followers on her page-the ones she deems a**holes. She doesn’t tolerate crazy. So I texted her and ask if I was still “in”. She assured me I was and I told her that I planned to change platforms but was overwhelmed with how to do it, she of course, had the answer! Here it is if you want to leave too. I still have to be there (for Macaroni Kid and my alpaca biz) but won’t be posting as much. I got the file download and am in the process of downloading it.
I see too that someone has posted a mass exodus from FB event. They could begin to regret their censoring. Other platforms are popping up. They just needed a reason I guess!
So last night we had a wonderful visit with the kids. We had a delicious dinner and though I have been out of sorts both physically and now mentally, Jack cheered me up. “We’re living in the best time in human history” he likes to remind me. “We’re not spending miserable days just existing. We’re having a wonderful dinner together with amazing food.” The Philosopher always brings me back to Earth and reality. Yes, life will go on and we will too.
Our buddy Connor came too and it is clear that I need to have a chew toy or something for my favorite grand dog. He’s a sweetie and tries so hard at 4 months.
We played the game “OK BOOMER” that I had gotten as part of our 2020 #MKMeetup Swag. It’s a fun game and was just what we needed to take our minds off the situation. It was great just talking, laughing and with no tv! I think Connor liked it too. He took a nap on the table in the middle of the game. Crazy dog!
We also had a surprise pop in from our friend Raff. Geared up with his mask, we sat outside and chatted. Uncharacteristically, he did not come prepared to spend the night or even eat dinner with us. I miss our old friend. But, he had places to go, people to meet and things to do and off he went. I didn’t even get a picture!
What’s in store today? I didn’t make reservations for church because I didn’t think Fr. Jim was leading the service. It is not streaming and it’s morning prayer. Usually means that he’s away.
Have a blessed day!
Remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay home but if you MUST go out, wear a mask and keep the length of a full grown llama (which is bigger than an alpaca) between you and the next person.
Have a blessed Day!
