Sex can be a funny topic. Well, it can be! At least in these comics they are.
That’s what I believe – Get the Job Done! Well, for as long as I can stay focused on the job! 😉
Bob the boyfriend is one of those guys who own every tool made. Therefore he believes when you do a job you must have the proper tool. Even if it takes 20 minutes to find the proper tool, you must have the tool. NOT my motto!
In my craft studio – yes, it’s almost ready to show – I wanted to hang a window treatment that Bob found. Of course my window was not the same size, so some adjustments needed to be made. Following Bob’s motto, I would have had to take scissors and trim the ends and stitch the ends closed. Then the right hardware would have to be found to hang the valance. Too time consuming! I wanted to get the job done.
Because I was focused and wanted to get the job done, I had to think what I had to easily fix the problems. I thought about my T-pins – long and definitely sturdy. Not only was I able to shorten the valance, I was also able to hang it. [Part of the hardware was missing and I didn’t want to mar the walls or wood trim.]
Well, thankfully I am on my way to becoming an elder citizen! So I don’t think it’s disrespectful for this humorous focus.
Of course than this seems to be everyone’s problem old and young… I know it plagues me sometimes!
Did you know that commas could be funny?
Well, I guess I mean that the incorrect use of commas can be funny!
Pruning is one of the many things my mother taught me. We both enjoyed the process of cutting away the unnecessary and bringing out the balanced shape of the tree or bush.
I spent Monday and Wednesday doing just that – pruning bushes and trees. That might not seem like much… a little bit of yardwork??
Well, I have not done any work outside since the fall of 2013. [Luckily Bob the boyfriend took care of the oak leaves.]
Grief is a terrible thing. My mother’s death on February 17, 2014, put a dead end in my life since that day. [Don’t stop reading, I promise this ends in a positive way.]
After a week of 100o days, Monday was a very pleasant 90 and I was called outdoors. That’s what it took… a calling. I was ready to move forward. It felt right. With each branch pruned away, the bush looked more alive, and I felt it too. I was even closer to my mom.
My grief has been a long journey – one that is not over – one that will be endless as that was my love for her. But, I don’t have to live with that dead end anymore. I have pruned away my dead creating room for new growth.
Sorry for the recent disappearance. Soon there will be a posting of the new craft studio – more boxes to unpack. Also, I am planning to create a Wednesday posting called Humorous Humpday. Look for that next week.
