Learning Saturday

You’ve all heard the expression “You learn something new every day.”. Well, I have chosen to take it a step further. I am going to share a few new things each Saturday that I learned during the week. You can join me in the comments.

Let’s start today, shall we:

A friend of mine had Hemmhorroids really badly and went to the doctor where he rubber banded them so they will fall off. Needless to say, I learned about that procedure.

I also learned the difference in colored verses white Cauliflower. The colored Cauliflower has more vitamins and antioxidants, then the white.

Lastly, I also Googled and learned about Monkeypox.There is a case in Texas,now.

Okay, tired now. Looking forward to reading about anything new you learned or did.

Thanks, New Day & Favor

Thank you all so much for your support on my rant, yesterday. One thing I love about WordPress is that I can be myself, incognito without being judged. If you are into judging, you are visiting the wrong blog. It means a lot just to have people listen. Of course, the support helps, too.

That being said;.

After venting to a few close friends before giving it up to God, I slept solid last night, and awoke ready for a new day! It was a lazy day, but the morning was awesome spending Zoom time with my Bible Study Group.

I have a request for you all, if you are so inclined.

Yesterday, I gave a Homeless bag to one of our Homeless, here in Vegas. I buy extra from the store to add to the bags I put together. My heart goes out to them, especially during this heatwave and I have had at least one person ask if I had a bottle of water, I could spare. So, I now make sure to include water, Gatorade, etc.. along with the other stuff. Here’s my request:

If you live in a place with lots of Homeless around, especially during this hot weather. Would you be willing to at least give one or two a bottle of water? Maybe before the Summer is over? After all, water is a basic necessity.

You don’t have to give money or put a bag together and you can pass it out the car window when the Police aren’t around. You don’t even have to tell me, if you do…but it would mean a lot to know we are all helping a fellow man…or woman, as the case may be.

Happy Sunday, tomorrow and Happy Father’s Day to those who celebrate.

Thank You & Mortgage Company

Wow! I just got notice this site has reached 5,000 All Time Views! I must be doing something, right. So, Thank You, All! Without readers, I would be sad.

Decided to go with a different Lender/Mortgage Company. I finally talked to the girl for the first and last time from the last one. She had an attitude, was pushy on using HER Realtor and did not explain how an FHA Loan works.

My new Realtor recommended the girl he works with. She is totally friendly, explained the FHA Loan situation which got my hopes back up, likes cats and…her last name is the word, “Purple”! Seriously, is this a good sign? So, I am going to fill out the App over the weekend.

Last night, the guy interested in my place brought his wife over to see my place. Even the neighbor came with him (his sister). They took pictures and asked if I was firm on the price; so, there is definite interest.

Workin On The Weekend

Yesterday was spent helping J. pack and get ready for the Moving Sale…after picking up a prescription and getting some groceries. It’s amazing how much she has not done when she has been planning to move since October.

Unfortunately, J. has Hoarder characteristics mixed with Orderliness. It takes her 20 minutes to go through a stack of washcloths to figure out what to keep. Then, things have to be packed just so or all like things put together for the sale. It can try your patience.

I am not going back there until tomorrow; choosing not to get dressed or go out, today. I hurt my foot on her rock pathway and need to rest it.

In other news, referring to my post; ‘Lost A Follower’. One of her friends or followers think they can come on my blog with their thoughts to defend her then accused me of not accepting Free Speech because I deleted it. The difference is that I followed her because I liked her blog. I didn’t go to her site just to comment over something that I witnessed. Plus, I really don’t care about his, her or their opinions. She told me to Go Away so they can do the same.

I would make this blog Private, but then I wouldn’t get any new Followers.

Lost A Blog Followed

I usually take Sunday off from blogging but guess what happened?

As the title states, I had to stop Following a blog site.  Why?  Because I support President Trump! 

Apparently, the blog author and her Followers do not and you aren’t allowed to have a different political stance.  She outright told me if I was a “Trumpet” to “Go Away”!  This type of thing is why people cannot live harmoniously! 

It’s a flipping blog!  People come from all life paths to read it.  If you can’t even comment to strangers, how do they think we are all going to live peacefully in person? 

She got pissed after I informed her that technically and legally Biden is not our President until the 20th.  He is President-Elect.

  I still hold onto hope that anything can happen in the meantime…probably won’t..but, it can.

Weird Ending

2020 left awfully quietly.

  Had a Zoom call with my BFF and her family in VA 3 hours before the New Year hit here.  Then, as I was watching a live feed of Freemont Street, the feed paused at exactly midnight so the viewers didn’t get to see what happened. There were no fireworks but they were setting off a type of rocket to do an implosion of sorts.  Talked to a friend on the phone then fell asleep while watching Happy New Year, Charlie Brown.  May have to watch the ending again.

Prior to that, my friend Kace came to visit and my Siamese cat, Monkey, did not like her!  That is the cat I need to stay attuned to, but, it was weird because I know Kace has been over here, before.

No Resolutions this year because I don’t do that. Maybe some personal goals, though.

Wishing you all the best in the coming year a head. Wait, it’s already here.

Venus, …Puma, Tara, Monkey and Susy.

*No, Venus isn’t my real name. But, that’s how I define myself on this blog.

Obsessed

I know I haven’t blogged every day minus Sunday like I should but right now I am seriously Obsessed over Reddit Secret Santa and I hate to drive you all crazy.

My guy got the first part of his gift the other day and I received a message last night that mine is in the mail! They actually tried this time and read my form even apologizing for whatever it is not being Purple.

I am living vicariously through the Gallery as people post the gifts received. It’s amazing what strangers are sending other strangers!

Plus, I have two friends involved this time so we’ve been on the phone for hours comparing and helping each other with our Matches and sharing gifts received. My BFF received expensive Chocolate for her, gluten-free and healthy dog treats for her dog, and a shirt is on the way! We did some research and the guy who had her is in Michigan.

Anyway, will try to post more often and discuss other topics.

Please pass if I go on and on. I won’t cry…to much.

Missed A Few

I don’t know how much time I’ve missed blogging but in my defense, I’ve been sick. Had a terrible sore throat sinus thing for the last 2-3 days and Migraines 4 out of 5 days. Yesterday, after taking my Imatrex, I slept 7 hours. Of course, that threw my night off a bit.

Anyway, aside from that; not to much new. I did get to lead our Bible Study on our Boundaries book today, which was really cool, as I am hoping to teach a class on it in the future.

Fishing For Info

Yesterday I talked to FS. She was fishing to see if I am still blogging. I mentioned “I don’t have the blog anymore”. meaning my old one and she goes, “So, you don’t blog at all?” I just repeated myself and changed the subject. It’s none of her business.

Only two people know I have this, but, don’t have access.

My last blog caused an extreme rift between my sister and I because she decided to spy. I refuse to let that happen again. I don’t know if it’s because I am the youngest but it’s like my family doesn’t want me to have my own thoughts and opinions. It’s stupid that I have to hide things for my own privacy. But, it’s my life

Health and Busyness

So much for a daily blog, right?  Yeah, I suck.  I know. 

I am not going to make excuses, but, I will update you.  

Been helping with my neighbors Yard Sale.  She made $600. bucks last weekend and she is having it again tomorrow and Saturday.  Also, been helping with our Bible Study via Zoom.  We are studying a book titled ‘Boundaries’ which is right on point, but, there are a lot of Bible verses to look up; which I am trying to do.

Now, we are at today.  Now, I am not one to get paranoid but I do have to remember reality.  Today I felt like I had a UTI.  Burning, couldn’t go hardly at all, etc..  So, I drank Cranberry Juice and tried some Vinegar Water.  I used to drink Vinegar Water for other reasons with no problem.  But, I had to jump up from my movie to suddenly vomit….Sorry, if that’s TMI.  After which, I have had water and Pedialite.  I don’t really hurt, but I am a bit tired and dizzy.    I am not panicking and will see how I feel, tomorrow.  I hate to go to the hospital…I still owe them $100 dollars….But, I did have a Kidney Transplant almost 14 years ago…I just pray this isn’t signs of Rejection.

Most transplants don’t last forever although I did read about a woman whose transplant has lasted over 80 years!
