Daybook

October 30, 2017

Looking out my window it’s another bright, sunny day.  But with the end of October, it’s finally brisk and feeling like Autumn.

I am thinking about politics and political parties and the future and how messed up our two party system is.  I’m thinking about whether our current representation in Washington has the moral courage needed to make real change.  And on top of that, I am thinking about how one middle-aged semi-retired lady in flyover country of flyover country can possibly make a difference.

I am thankful for the opportunity to be so caught up in all my thoughts.  I have a husband who has always provided for us financially, a roof over my head, good food on the table, and a new car in the driveway.  I don’t have to worry how I’m going to pay the electric bill or our car insurance.  I don’t even need to work outside the home, for which I’m exceptionally thankful since being able to stay home makes me a better foster mom.

I am creating graphic art.  I just finished a big project to help a new online friend campaign for New Jersey State Assembly.  I love doing this and look forward to more opportunities.  I also need to create more for my Facebook page!

I am wearing black leggings, a loose flowing tunic (with POCKETS!), and my Keen water shoes.

I am watching all sorts of grown-up shows.  I’m not a big fan of watching television so when we have little ones in the house I choose to keep it off at night.  Since we don’t have any extras at the moment I’ve been watching prime tv with Ashe and Elwood.

I am hoping for a new placement.  Today.

I am learning how to use PhotoShop more extensively.  It takes time because I always seem to be in a hurry to get things done.  BUT, now that I know Adobe has its own font library, I find myself more inspired.

In my kitchen it’s starting to look more like a kitchen and less like the junk drawer.
