I seriously love saying that. The fact I have readers from all parts of our big world never fails to make me happy. I’m humbled that I can share with you, wherever you are.
So thanks for joining me in another edition of Monday Musings!
I hope, that life is returning to a bit of normal for you. There were lots of things making me think during this “quarantine” time. One of them is about masks.
I won’t get into the two camps….the wear or don’t wear. Each side has a bit of it’s own “airs” associated with it.
My thoughts are a bit random based on my quirky sense of humor.
So here are my positives on mask wearing :
I can yawn like an unconcerned cat with no need to worry about being lady like. No need to delicately cover my mouth to hide that bored, sleepy, I need caffeine yawn. Nope, with mask in place I can yawn unconcerned.
I always wear lip gloss, but behind a mask, who really knows if I am or not?
Mask wearing cuts down on potential, unnecessary snacking. 😉
I don’t have to worry if I’m looking “happy” to people passing….smile or no smile….that’s the question. They don’t know.
Finally, my eyes get the attention and not my smile. With my smile covered it’s time for my eyes to get their moment in the spotlight.
Ok enough of all that….
Did anyone start a new hobby, job or project during the quarantine time? I took my business to another level when I jumped in to be a retailer for Dixie Belle chalk paint. Our shop opened up May 1st and it’s been flying off the shelves….awesome…but now I’m chomping at the bit waiting to get two huge orders in .
I have also been asked multiple times about a website for my business so I have undertaken that project.
Let me say this….all things technical are not my calling…. much less building a website. I am slow….pathetically slow crafting this fledgling site. I am way speedier turning over ugly furniture and making it pretty.
I figured I put this site together for my blog 5 years ago, I can assemble a business website.
And…..it’s almost done. Engage happy dance. I’m feeling rather proud of myself right now.
Have you done something lately that is out of your comfort zone?
My business ventures are pushing me out of mine. I love risks, but there is the flip side of exhilarating terror too 😬
That’s all I’m saying for now. I haven’t shared with my customers yet, once I do I will share more here.
Speaking of all that….did I share the cool antique cabinet a friend gave me? I dragged it home, invested a little energy into it and now it makes an uber cool paint cabinet for my shop.
It started off like this…I had sanded some to unearth several other colors under the pink.
I also turned these old sewing drawers into something sweet and feminine….
I just got these really crusty ones, but look at all those sweet details 🥰 I would love to turn all of this into a little cabinet.
When I’m not working, it’s fun experimenting with new recipes
This is a family favorite. Chocolate with gooey caramel and pecans ….so good. Don’t take my word for it. Give it a try
This other cake I made at Easter. Seriously the frosting alone with the toasted butter pecans is so good I’d just skip the cake 🤣
Here is the recipe for you to try and make your own decision
Have you tried any new recipes recently?
Remember to be kind to one another out there. Be helpful, be loving. Respect each other. This world is rough but individually we can make a positive impact in our circles. Have a good week!
Tell me….how’s your week gone. Everyone doing ok ?
