Well, it appears I can't see the forest for the trees. I went to attend the virtual funeral service and was stumped when I was asked for a password. I should have texted another friend who I know was going to attend. She found the password - it was right BELOW the link. Why didn't I do that? I feel bad that I didn't attend.
I realized this morning that this is a third party company that organizes the live stream. Who knew? But I guess there's now a business to make those important events accessible to anyone regardless of where they are. Isn't this a wonderful thing? Imagine this service going forward - you don't always need to physically attend an event, but you want to be part of it. Or sometimes, you can't attend - bedridden, too far away, etc. This live stream option is good. Just pay attention to the instructions.
I don't know if they recorded them - I sent them a notice. I don't think so. Recording a funeral service sounds a bit morbid.
I'm almost done reading the book about the royal couple who split from The Firm. I don't want to get into a discussion here, but they sound like two spoiled kids. H is not as important as his brother, M wants to be the queen of the castle, so they are gone because they didn't get as much money and attention as they felt they deserved.
I didn't realize the extent of the negative press they received from day one, especially the racial harassment. Now M can be the queen of her domain. I feel bad for H and the baby. I don't have high hopes for that relationship. I'm not a fan of what happened, and let's just leave it at that.
And OH MY GOD - I slept like a log last night. So well that I woke up remembering an extremely vivid dream that I had. I was being accused of having an affair and not by my current partner. Nope - that would be my ex from years ago. Seriously??? Where did this come from? But what was even scarier was the technology he used. I'm guessing that this stuff is real - but he had this little device that somehow had all these videos.
He grabbed a photo of my face and was able to pick out my face in crowds at different places. All while wearing my bright orange jacket, of course! WOW!! Where did that come from? I'm not having an affair - hey - how could you have an affair under our current circumstances anyway? We're now supposed to stay in our houses for the next 28 days. We're allowed to make necessary trips - groceries, medicine, medical appointments, walking the dogs, and exercise. Phew - I'm good!
Speaking of walking, I was walking Murphy yesterday morning when I spotted this by the curb. Oh my - I almost caved and went back. Then I thought - what am I going to do with these when I already have extra containers under the stairs. They were still there last night.
|Bright orange containers up for grabs|
|Shopping for fabric painting medium|
|The marking device drawer|
|Using markers to color on fabric|
|Coloring fabric with markers|
|Getting ready to use the INKTENSE pencils|
|Brand new pencils|
|Getting ready to color with pencils|
|My finished fish|
|Taking pictures of a sewing machine|
|Customer quilt - DONE|
|Some units that got trimmed|
|My red scraps are sorted|
Again - it feels AMAZING to sort through those scraps in mere MINUTES, not hours. It was a struggle - a HUGE struggle to get things to where I want them to be, but now that I'm there - at least in the sewing studios - it's a breeze to do anything! It may not be spic and span and pretty looking, but it's the most functional it's ever been. I'm thrilled, and every minute that I spend making it so - was so worth it.
Someday, the office will be the same, but not now, and I now have too much to do to focus on that area. At least for the next couple of weeks. But that's OK.
I see that I have a few more e-mails to deal with today. All these class sign-ups take some administration time. But I worked out a system there as well, and so I'm good. I did manage to get the third library attached to my account and ordered my book. It's like the password to the live stream. Go back and look at things carefully, and it will happen. So I'm good there. But with the new shut-down rules, will we be allowed to do curbside pickup? Technically no! So we'll see what the library says. I'm not worried as I have loads of books to read here and audiobooks which don't require going to the library. I won't be running out of reading material any time soon.
I'm down to one and a half sides of binding left on that quilt!! Yeah - a couple more nights and I'll be done and ready to pick a new hand project to work on. Wow -- I'm getting things done, and I'm a happy camper!!!
On that note, I'm out of here. Don't forget to set that time for TEN minutes. You'd be surprised at how much you can tidy up in ten minutes. When we need to tidy in our house, it takes so little time and everything is neat. I LOVE it. Pick an area - any area, and if you want to share your before and after photos, I'd love to share it. Or perhaps you can share the one organization system you have that you're the proudest of. I can post those so others can get inspired as well.
Have a great day!!!!
