Just in case I lose power tomorrow. When I wake up there will be plenty of snow, and wind, it will be the light fluffy stuff____a Blizzard they say! Well, ain’t nothing new! Those that snowmobile and ski, the kids will love it, and those who don’t_____well, they will put up with it because there isn’t a choice. As long as we don’t lose power “We will be snug as a bug in a rug!” I will put some music on, since the tree is still up, turn it on? Why not. A nice day for hot cocoa and books? Let it actually be a weekend? Why not!
I did the hair (washed it) in case there was no power. And will fill containers with water, so to flush the flush and wash the hands, drinking water. We don’t tend to lose it long. But ya never know. Have sandwich supplies at the ready, milk, some soda.
Merlock has decided he needs to be close if I am going to sit in the recliner to read. He kept pestering me but does not want to be picked up and held. So to solve this because I had an inkling how to fix it, I pulled the coffee table so the end is beside me and put his bed on top, now he is a very happy can. He just needs to be close all the time. This puts the couch and coffee table off-center, but he is happy.
Tonight was a shepherd’s pie night. If Alex gets hungry later he can have more. That’s the idea if he is up late doing one of those all-night games with his friends. I got him covered.
This is a chatty post by the feel of it. I suppose it’s me settling into a laid-back, it’s storm mode. My one disappointment? I have more books coming and I am thinking the Fed-X or UPS may not go out and about.
I can read more research material once some of them come in. Best wishes! Pejj
I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.”
Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
