BE BOLD -MANDY HALE


“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
— Mandy Hale (The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

JUST A SLIGHT CHANCE OF PANIC!


I was stretching out my muscles and a kink in my neck.

Manager: problems?

Me: yes all the time.

Manager: your crystal turned black.

I was wearing a clear quartz necklace. my eyes bugged out and I frantically reached for my quartz and the manager started laughing.

Me: oh my gulay! Don’t do that!

Manager: you should have seen your face! I suppose your crystal is not supposed to be turning black?

Me: no!

Ah good times!

You Got This!


Never regret anything that makes you smile

Don’t forget to drink your water. Eat a snack!

Relax your shoulders. Laugh at someone’s joke.

Don’t worry about the small stuff. Don’t be too serious! Be silly!

Having a moment to reflect all your blessings, can be reassuring. Putting yourself in a more peaceful piece of mind.

Take a deep breath! You can do this!

Most of all? Have a wonderful day!

SLEEP WELL


Woke up to find Gremlin asleep outside the bedroom door.

Smoky asleep on the cat tree

Daisy asleep on my leg.

A comforting way to wake up 🥰

So I picked up Gremlin and carried him to the rocking chair in the living room so he could be comfy🥰 he won’t come in my room if Smoky is there.😩

Now I am going back to sleep.

Hopefully all three cats will behave and sleep well.

BEST PART OF FALL IS HORROR FILMS… no zombies please!


I love horror movies.

I am kind of disappointed that there isn’t enough selection or a great selection of horror movies this year on tv.

Granted, these past two years have a been horror movie to some.

While I love horror movies, there are is a type I refuse to watch! Zombie! (I don’t consider Resident Evil a horror movie so…😒🥰)

I’m flashbacking to the scene in Dawn of the Dead when Vivian was in the house…

Oh my gosh! 😱

Traumatized me for life!

Anyway, I made the mistake of trying to find a good horror movie. In the dark. Online.

Not a good idea because I have such an overwhelmingly over reactive imagination!

I had a nightmare.

It began pleasantly enough.

I was on a cruise. Beautiful scenery. Vibrant colours. Everything began to get darker. Sepia colours. Colder.

We were in the North. The cruise liner plowing through ice and slush. The coronavirus had mutated into the T-Virus.

I am holding my cat, snuggling her.wondering why there were fewer people onboard. Daisy was in her sling strapped to my body, when she started fussing. “I swear, this feels so familiar.” I muttered, trying to soothe her. Out of nowhere Jill Valentine attacks me! Where the hell did she even come from? How the hell did I get these fighting skills?

While I’m blindsided by Jill’s blitz attack, zombies are descending upon us. Turns out Umbrella Corporation wanted my blood because I was immune to the T-virus. Damn Wesker!

I was about to be beaten, my body being plummeted into the snow by Jill. Zombie hands broke through the ice clawing at us both.

I woke up this morning not feeling too hot after that nightmare!

NIGHT FOG VIBE


Appreciating the fog that rolled in.

Lying on my bed in the dark, it’s a perfect white

Lit only by a nearby street lamp.

my breathing and the pounding of my heart breaks the eerie quiet

Nightmares creep in the shadows and it’s moments like these that are perfect for

Me.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS


I had unexpected surprise when I got off shift.

My sister e-transfer money into my account “you probably need money. You always do things for me and K”

I was so stunned. I thanked her.

She called me and asked if it was enough. I said yes.

Her baby daddy told me “it’s hard being by yourself and no one helps you out. So if you need money don’t be afraid to ask. ”

I was quiet then. I didn’t know what else to say except thank you.

My sister replied “you do so much for k and I, Becky”

I was just so bewildered.

In all honesty I was kind of worried about my money situation, I was being reckless with my money. I prayed for guidance and I am so grateful for the many blessings that the Lord gave me.

He sure works in mysterious ways 🥰

I WAS JUST TRYING MY BEST


I have a headache!

I had to pray for patience and kindness today.

I flipped my shit! Lost my temper at a customer and almost threw my headset at the screen.

I was nice taking his order but before he even finished his sentence he began to bitch me out about how his order was wrong.

“I’m sorry?”

“I only wanted 1 coffee”

“Yes it’s $2.30”

“I said 1 coffee!”

Then every time I tried to tell him he would cut in and tell me how his order was wrong.

I snapped. Lost it! “Will you please stop talking over me! I’m trying to tell you how much it costs! Your order is $2.30!” I shouted.

There was silence. “But it said..”

Annie who was making ice cream looked at me. “Becky,” she warned.

The customer finally drove up to the First booth and proceeded to yell at the cashier “how dare she talk to him that way! I want your name and I’m talking to the owner”

Annie went to the first booth just as the customer started shouting at the cashier. “She isn’t the one who took your order and neither did I. I’m a manager. I agree the OT shouldn’t have talked to you like that and I will talk to her but she was trying to inform you of your order. I’m sorry about it.” Blah blah

Annie came down to Second to tell me how upset the customer was. But Annie wasn’t mad at me. Nor did she reprimand me. Thankfully.

I try to work on my temper but come on, use the two brain cells God gave you, people!

I HAVE DREAMT IN MY LIFE


“I have dreamt in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.” – Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

A STORY BEGINS WITH AN IDEA


Earlier today I was thinking about my writing.

I really miss writing my stories. Creating storylines in my head.

I really hope to get back into the swing of things and get back to writing. I don’t even know how long it’s been!

When I was younger there was only one genre I loved to write. Supernatural. Vampires!

I loved Vampires!

Ever since I read Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire? The obsession was unreal!

I would read and write about vampires.

I thought there was something romantic about undying love. Being mortal falling in love with an immortal being.

Now as I get up in my old age, I ponder: what was romantic about falling in love with a vampire?

  • a walking cadaver.
  • Who is paler than I am?
  • Breath reeks of rotting flesh not to mention blood.
  • Oh there’s not going to be enough Scope or Listerine to cover that up! Or compulsion to make a person forget about the smell!!!
  • Can’t enjoy garlic or wear a cross

Remembering how much I loved writing about vampire love stories made me smile.

Some of my favourite vampire books

  • Vampire chronicles-Anne Rice
  • Vampire Diaries-LJ Smith (pre CW of course)
  • Anita Blake series – Laurell K Hamilton (before she got crazy with the sex)
  • Undead series – Mary Janice Davidson
  • Sookie Stackhouse – Charlaine Harris

I read more but That’s all I can remember. 🥰🥰

There is only vampire I truly adore!

Elijah Mikaelson🥰

Always and forever
