Tonight, as I was reaching into the freezer to put ice into one of my favorite blue glasses, an IKEA Kitchen rail that has been resting on top of the fridge fell on my arm holding the glass. You can guess what happened next, shattered glass everywhere, banged up arm and for a split second I thought the scalpel sharm glass severed something on me. Either I have the reflexes of a frightened squirrel or dumb luck but no cut. I am now down to the last glass that I've had since my Freshmen year in college, trust me that was not recent. I can't quite explain why these silly glasses are so sentimental for me but all I can think of is that these lasted with me for over two decades. Moves from state to state, house to house and not a crack but in the last few weeks I've lost 3 of 4 glasses. Is it Karma telling me to let go of the old? Makes you think, doesn't it. I acted like a child and broke down to a point where Paulie thought something was seriously wrong with me. There are no marks on the bottom of the last glass so I have no way of searching for them online but you never know, maybe I'll come across them at some point in my travels or never see another one again. Perhaps this is an exercise in patience and acceptance of what can happen in life and learning to move on without regret and looking backwards. For now I am drinking out of plastic! lol
Being an optimist with a dry sense of humor has gotten me out of alot of tricky situations. Now I 'homestead', this term is used very loosely, in suburbia with a husband, 3 dogs, 1 cat and 5 chickens. While I work for a large corporation in a 'satellite' office (OK, it's a room in my house) I balance my days with cooking, organizing, crafting, vlogging and occasionally showing my mug on camera. Cooking has always been one way I express my love which explains the amount of leftovers friends and family are usually sent home with after social events. A large part of my brain is geared to solve problems, work related or not, I see the big picture and tend to approach things from the point of view - I can fix pretty much anything - short of surgery and tooth removal (that I will leave to the brave souls who have to take that path out of necessity). Now you know the basics, stop by my channel to check out the 'details' of my daily life.
