If you’re like me, you don’t like buying clothing in stores and never have..even before this pandemic and quarantine business. The fitting rooms in stores are small and dirty most of the time plus the lighting is nowhere near the same as your house. But, you still want clothing that fits well and is fashionable and stylish to you.
I enjoy online shopping and I like unique clothing. I was never the trendy type. My mom taught me that by Always buying from the clearance rack..but that’s another story. Some day I will tell you about the Ditto jeans fiasco…
I found a shopping site, I had never heard of before and they have some cute clothing. It’s called Breezecloth.com and it is a small company that just started up. Supposedly, the owners started it in the U.S. but the clothing is actually being made in Hong Kong and maybe China…That’s another thing, why is all the totally, cute stuff made in China? It makes buying mainly American brands, quite boring….Anyway, I did some research and contacted the company before taking the risk. I also used PayPal so as to pay safely. The problem is, you cannot find this company via Google or Yahoo and since it is so new, there is not enough interest for any actual ratings, yet. I will let you know if and when I receive my orders. I just pray this company is legit.
Since this post is about online clothing; what sites do you recommend? Especially from my female Followers. I love Vintage and unique, type fashion; but anywhere you suggest would be cool to check out.
What new hobbies have you started since this whole quarantine business?
I have been cooking from scratch more and getting more creative with food. I have also been staying informed on health, nutrition and other interests plus, keeping my mind sharp playing mental games.
Most recently, I have started doing Puzzles. The first one I completed was 100 pieces
and the next one will be 250 pieces. This one is a lot harder as you have various sized pieces to make the edges and pieces that look like edges in the middle. Most every time I get frustrated and think I don’t have all the pieces, I find another one that fits.
I guess Puzzles are a lot like life. We need to find where we fit, naturally.
Zorro is up for adoption. Finally, the organization has him on the web site. They lied about the circumstances though by saying he was let go due to Covid. I think Covid is getting blamed for everything. Next time I have a Migraine, maybe I should blame Covid. Wait, that wasn’t funny. Headaches are a symptom.
Have you ever used Wish or Tophatter or similar apps to shop? I have noticed Wish has been upping their prices without warning. And, their Return Policy sucks, too. Two things I received were not what I ordered and C. is out like $50. for something she ordered that never arrived.
I really need to stick to more US based companies.
Would you be friends with yourself? Have you ever tried to see yourself from anothers perspective?
I am realizing now how much different I was in the past. I was critical and judgemental of others. I was also a Fixer, wanting to fix relationships and lifestyles that people didn’t want fixed or weren’t my business.
I don’t have a lot of friends, although, that is also because of my health. My first husband even left because I was “sick to much.”
I believe I have changed a lot, especially during this Pandemic. I have been getting closer to God and learning how he wants me to live. So to answer my own question, I would be friends with me. At least enough to check in and make sure I was okay, from time to time.
What about you? Would you be friends with yourself?
I am an animal person! I can’t help it. I like animals better then people, so, when animals are uncared for, abused and/
or abandoned; it bothers me.
J. called, this morning, about taking Zorro..her dog…to the shelter. She claimed she had been told she didn’t need an appointment. Turns out, she does need an appointment and they are booked for the next two weeks. So, that trip did nothing but stress out me, Zorro and J. as well. To be honest, J. lies and makes things up. C. and I don’t believe anyone told her she didn’t need an appointment. What with COVID, appointments are needed for everything, now.
Anyway, the girl at the shelter gave J. a list of places to call; and I was just informed by C. that someone is coming to pick up the dog..like they did the cats. So, that’s good news, and will be one less stressor.
Only a few more weeks, until J. is gone to Idaho…which will be a relief for both C. and myself. In the meantime, prayers for patience, please.
The Positive: Of those 5 people, everyone bought something. The new neighbors bought a lot of her furniture including the extra bedroom set, living room set and dining table set. Also, my friend from Bible Study showed up so I got to meet her in person!
The Negative: 5 people during the entire day. Are people not coming because of Covid and money priorities? Or, is it because of the long weekend, or is it a Vegas thing? Truthfully, I think it’s more due the timing and environment, right mow.
Needless to say, C. says she will never do another one. But, I don’t know. I enjoy Yard Sales, usually. I think life needs to get back to normal so people feel a little more secure with steady and excess income.
I am not setting my alarm for tomorrow. I think I need to let my body wake me up to help prevent Migraines like I had today.
What with the pandemic, I don’t get out much anymore so errands were exciting. Plus, I woke up freaking about my checking account and what to send my Secret Santa.
So, I checked my bank account, paid bills and finished Christmas shopping from the internet. After which, I ordered Pizza Hut online. When I went to the Post Office, I was shocked to discover my presents for my BFF were going to cost $40. more to ship then expected. Then I discovered Pizza Hut doesn’t give free packs of hot pepper anymore; they try to sell you a whole jar of it. Ridiculous. After I left, I found a penny on the ground and picked it up for good luck. To bad it wasn’t a dollar! Later on, I learned that C’s daughter and Granddaughters will be visiting soon so I went to The Dollar Tree and grabbed a few things for them for Christmas.
All in all, it was a very busy and productive day.
For the last few months during this Pandemic, I have been focusing a lot more on God and what he wants of me. During this trying time, I am extremely thankful for my mobile home even though it’s not where I want to remain much longer.
I have also been seriously studying the book ‘Boundaries’
with my Bible Study group. I am learning so much about myself and how to understand and react to others. Our group leader even sent me the Workbook that goes with it!
I haven’t been called to any dating sites lately. It probably isn’t the best time to be meeting people anyway, what with having to stay home and my weak immune system. Plus, I am praying that God leads me to a Free, Christian one if that’s where/how I am supposed to meet someone.
Anyway, December has arrived and it is the month of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. I wish you all a very blessed December.
