Hi everyone! I haven’t been on here for a few days! I’ve been extremely busy with making myself productive around this house. I also had to work for a few hours on Saturday. While I was at my work event I ran into my friend, or I guess I should say my former best friend. I’m not really sure what we are anymore. Well I say we are still friends. We were cordial and had a nice conversation but I sensed it wasn’t the same. It’s sometimes easy for me to pick up on peoples’ energy/vibe. I can see it in their eyes too. I can tell when people change or… maybe I’ve changed? Maybe both? It’s always an unfortunate part of life when people and relationships fall and grow apart. I hate the feeling I get when I feel like someone isn’t into me anymore, whether it’s a lover or friend. I hate that nervous and nauseating feeling I get in the pit of my stomach. I think those are some of the worst feelings in life. The calls and texts also become less and less. It’s always good to tell the ones you love and care about how you feel often. Is it just me or do certain songs remind you of a person or memory? Anyway, I’m going to continue being myself. I’ve eventually come to realize over the years not everyone will like or appreciate who I am. I used to care a lot more but I don’t anymore. For example, a blogger here asked for guest posts and he/she said my writing was good but he/she didn’t like my movie review. He or she asked if I wanted to rewrite it. I didn’t even bother to respond. Their e-mail went straight into the trash. No thank you, I don’t have time to rewrite my opinion on a movie. I’m sorry you didn’t like my opinion… No actually I’m not sorry. I would be devastated if it was Rolling Stone or Time rejecting my writing but it wasn’t.
Anyway, I cleaned up the front yard as much as I could because it was driving me crazy, or crazier I should say! I pulled out weeds and planted some pretty annuals and perennials. I forgot how fun gardening can be. I’ve always enjoyed planting flowers, roses especially. I plan on planting some in big, beautiful clay or glass pots very soon. I’m also thinking of getting some hanging baskets and planting more vincas and/or petunias. I also like geraniums too because they’re beautiful and withstand the heat and dryness here. My favorite are the bright orange ones. My issue with plants and flowers is forgetting to water them at times! One of my favorite jobs I ever had was working at The Home Depot in the garden center back in college. I enjoy jobs where I’m not just sitting around. It makes the time go by quicker and you get some good workouts from time to time. I’ve enjoyed getting up early in the morning to plant the flowers and water them. It’s been so therapeutic to listen to the birds and train passing by before it gets very hot.
I’ve also been cleaning the rest of the house. I’m amazed at some of the things I’ve found here. Andre’s family wrote many letters throughout a span of several years. I can be nosy so I read a few letters Andre wrote to his grandparents while he was in the Navy. I love cards and letters like this. Nobody really does this anymore because of technology. It’s a beautiful and inexpensive treasure to receive a postcard, birthday card and/or letter via snail mail. I know I still have some I’ve received throughout the years saved somewhere. It also turns out Andre’s grandma was a writer in her spare time. I’ve enjoyed reading her stories about what was going on in her life in the late 70s up until the early 90s. Everyone always has a story to tell and hers were well written…just like many of your posts here! Well guys, time for bed! Until next time!
