The only cultivated flowers we have in our entire yard are Irises and they have already “passed.” Now we are enjoying one of my favorite “weeds,” the Spiderwort (sounds horrid, but they are really pretty).
About a month ago I made up a design which was put on a blank watercolor-card. The pre-Shutdown plan had been for each of the dozen or so ladies in a Wednesday afternoon seniors’ Art Group (including myself) to color in one flower, sign the card, and present it as a Thank-you to the amazing artist who was to visit our center on the 8th of April 2020…
It was a lot of fun creating “the arrangement” from duplicated, mirrored, and variously reduced versions of the three flowers presented here. I thought a “bored” blog viewer might want to try a similar exercise! Green-thumbs not required. [Get your cut-out flowers to “bend/droop” (like the front lilies on far-right and far-left, and the left- and right-front tulips below) by partially clipping the paper-stem below the bloom and making a small dart/tuck.]
So, my stubborn quarantined locked-down feminist strong independent sister-fish…you still not needin’ no bicycle?
Or wouldn’t it be nice (or nicer)
…to be married to and living with a loving, trustworthy, man-committed-to-you-alone right about now, not only for the companionship but for the safety-in-numbers?*
And wouldn’t it be nicer right about now…
…if you had gone less “liberated” and a teensy bit Trad-Girl instead…and you’d have learned how to whip up some basics in the kitchen from scratch, say brewing your own coffee :-), mixing and baking a “quick bread” like scones, cheese biscuits (for small batches I use my toaster oven), a slow-cooker soup or a near “instant” one, and perhaps a slab of good ‘ol Focaccia for sammies or plain ‘ol veggie-topped cheese pizza?
And wouldn’t you be less stressed
…when you peer into the mirror every morning or get a glimpse of yourself during your (alas, seemingly endless) day if you hadn’t become an InstaGrimm-groupie and thereby got yourself hooked on glamming-up daily from your unmanageable closet stuffed with landfill-clogging disposable Fast-Fashion after troweling on an ever-expanding array of body-, face-, and eye-potions?
Wouldn’t you be a whole lot saner right about now…
Here’s hoping your remaining days-of-solitude are spent learning something new that’s constructive. I can pretty much promise such endeavors will lead you to a more contented place.
Do-it-yourself Matchmaking “course”
* How can you more wisely search for a partner to build a contented relationship with – one that’ll likely last a lifetime? Quit reading click-bait “advice” authors and get your very own MatchMaker, on the cheap, bubeleh! I can highly recommend, “Dating Secrets: the Ultimate Guide to Finding Your Spouse,” by two Jewish shadchanim (matchmakers), Leah Jacobs and Shaindy Marks. This, of course, deserves a much longer review, but in a nutshell, here goes…
While I’m not Jewish – and neither do you need to be to learn from the books jam-packed 288 pages – I am Christian. The continual references to God (Hashem), His hand, and those who fear Him was quite the opposite of bothersome. Now the frequent use of Yiddish terminology, even given the glossary at the back, did make the book challenging. To read the book cover to cover (I’d suggest taking notes) will take a while, but you will take frequent “breaks” as you work through the authors’ wise exercises.
Unfounded distrust-of, hatred-of, and slander-of Ideological-Others,
Violence- and in-person harassment-against Ideological-Others who were not themselves on physical offense first,
ANY “laws” that enable Evil to prey more easily on the Harmless, especially….
all “Gun-Control” laws (study the history of Democide),
#RedFlagLaws which certainly will be used against the Harmless (for being an Ideological-Other),
#Abortion aka the Genocide called “healthcare!” – at all stages and in all styles – the unborn are always Harmless (60 MILLION+ in America, alone, since 1973, for Heaven’s sake!),
Chemical Castration of children (Prescription Drugs that prevent maturation) followed by the inversion of that child’s sex-at-birth,
– to be continued, I’m sure –
Something that made me go, “Hm-m-m…”
Seeing the response to the charitable Baltimore clean-up effort spearheaded and accomplished by a Scott Presler, a young (White-) man and those he “drafted” a few days ago got me to thinking about the inevitable Watershed Moment that is barreling it way towards the majority of White normies still out in America.
A tsunami cometh
It will be more than a mere watershed moment. It will be a tsunami when the remaining mass of once oblivious Palefaces finally understands the visceral, incurable Hatred-for-Whiteness and its imagined “privilege” now running deep in the hearts/minds/souls of not-Whites (and which has been manifest relentlessly in mainstream media, at least since mid-2015 and the candidacy of Trump).
I got to wondering how much outcry there could be Post Awakening, shall we say, when not if another “Katrina” or “Harvey” strikes the Gulf Coast. After all, it is primarily Privileged Palefaces, Inc. who charitably load up 18-wheeled wagons with bottled water, baby diapers and formula, clothing, bedding, etc. etc. and head ‘em on out – often cross-country! – bringing aid and comfort to such stricken areas.
The government will help you…eventually
Will those future devastated peoples-of-color-other-than-white (and their white neighbors) be heartbroken as they await the wagons of (primarily Christian-) Compassion that never come? How many more in the storm’s path will die when it is Uncle Sam and Uncle Sam, alone, riding/motor-boating to their rescue?
There is a limit to the charity folks have to give. The haters can stop their unfounded resentments, hatred, and outright attacks here and now, or continue to bring deserved and well-founded Indifference upon themselves.
I’ve recently finished “running the numbers,” for tax-purposes, from my stencil-printed t-shirt hobby and I’ve decided to stop doing them for a while.
A massive “Thank-you” to all of you who allowed me to create shirts for you in 2018!
It may be hard to believe but little ‘ol’ perfectionist me makes barely above minimum wage on each shirt. I will instead, devote the majority of my creative energy on a fiction project I’ve been itching to tackle (for 2+ years…YIKES). (But I do intend to add a few of my existing designs onto the print-on-demand site, Teespring. And perhaps some new, ones. Yes, I know there is always the risk of their censorship.)
I hope you will find something else very soon in my Teespring shop that you’d also enjoy wearing – or drinking your coffee from!
Finally…I can say some more 🙂 and that’s, “They’re here!”
16 august 2018
Finally got an actual sample on Tuesday the 14th that I could say “Go Ahead” to! (See above.) I’m guesstimating I’ll have the actual patches within 10 days from now. The price will revert back to $7.00 (shipped) each once that happens.
I have been itching to share this design since I first sketched it out, but now that it’s “In Production,” I finally can!
It sure would make a great license plate, as illustrated above (courtesy of Photoshop®) but how perfect will this simple 3” x 2” embroidered Velco-backed patch look on your Politically-Correct campus this Fall?
Or, if college life is wa-a-ay back in the rearview mirror, how ’bout just seeing it in the neighborhood, say on your (burly, martial-arts trained) older-kids’ backpacks for that always memorable First-Day-of-School? And talk about “Sparking a conversation” at the next family reunion or City Council meeting…
I think you can begin to picture the funtimes ahead.
Regardless of the venue, I’m certain you’ll find plenty of folks who’ll agree with the sentiment:
Can’t we just hang the lot of ‘em?
How to Order
All prices include USA shipping! (OnceI have the patches in hand and they’re ready-to-ship shipping, so for new orders the price is will go back to$7.00 each, shipped.) See the specially-priced “USA – EKG” HERE that’s noted in the order form below.
