I know my one follower who still follows, misses me. So I decided to write something, blog something. Hell, it is gorgeous outside and I thought about my neglected blog. I am such a bad blog parent, but the way the world is right now…it is hard to write something that isn’t filled with visceral rants and depressive thoughts. I am discombobulated about what I am seeing and feeling and it ain’t good. However, I am going to attempt to fill you in on what has been going on in my life for the last month.
I saw The Guy on January 14th as he showed off his new car, plus he was celebrating a birthday. He is getting old! On January 18th, I did my day of service by working with Hands Across River Region in helping to make toiletry bags for the homeless. Did you know in my county they actually go out once a year and count the homeless? When they do, they give them bags of items that will be most useful to them. I am going to ask my book club to donate tooth brushes and tooth paste and mouthwash, because those are the items they need and don’t get much of. I enjoyed doing this with students from elementary schools as well as Alabama State University. They even fed the volunteers, but you know I didn’t stay for that but it was a nice gesture. I had Vn Pho here in Montgomery for the 1st time in January, which means I have had it a couple times prior to this date. Since January 20th, I have been in some state of mourning over President Obama. However, I must move on. Oh, Aloha had her first birthday. Y’all, she is something else. She is walking, talking and still going to be on the cover of Time magazine!
I have been cooking a bit more. Not much more though. Shrimp and grits and baked spaghetti with whole wheat noodles, ground turkey and turkey pepperoni and anything simple like baked chicken.
I promise I am going to do a post about having Sisterlocks for 10 years. I am still trying to convince my Consultant to cut my hair. She just told me no again on yesterday. Imma cut this hair so I can wear cute hair styles, hell!
Seriously, it is hard to write when your heart is filled with angst and anger. I need to write a book review and a restaurant review too! I am so behind, but today I decided to write just a little bit so I know I can still do it even if it is a bit choppy.
Today is beautiful. The sun is shining brightly ignoring the darkness over Washington, DC. It is a warm 79 degrees; folks are walking around in sandals and flip flops. Me, I have on long sleeves, trouser socks and closed toe shoes. I ain’t going to let Mother Nature trick me because one week we are cold and another week we are summer time warm. I can say winter wasn’t too bad. We may have had a month of cold weather spread out from October to now. However, what does this mean for summer? You all know I ain’t about the heat.
I hope where ever you live your day is as beautiful as mine and you get to enjoy some of it today whether you are working or not. Until my next post…
