We’ve been having some beautiful fall-ish weather in Dallas. Of course, who knows if it will last. It could be 90 again tomorrow (I didn’t bother to check the forecast). Rich has been busy doing lots of yard work and fixing things up outside. Ajax and I hung out on the front porch “spotting” Rich in case he fell off the ladder with the power trimmer in his hand. Thankfully he did not. 🙂
Grandson Jack came over for an hour yesterday morning while his mom volunteered at the kids’ school and dad went to work. We had a nice visit and then I took him to his preschool. Did a little shopping to spruce up our apartment before some friends come to visit from out of state on Monday. Had a coupon from Nothing Bundt Cakes–buy one bundlet, get another free, so of course I had to stop by and get a red velvet for Rich and a lemon for me. I thought I was getting the mini bundts that are kinda like cupcakes but these were actually small cakes. Dessert after dinner!
I’m a little obsessed with all of the horrible news lately. Hurricanes and fires and people suffering in too many places in the world. Our ridiculous president and his responses to those disasters. Should I say his disastrous responses to those disasters? Mass killings and yet the NRA and the administration pursue the “more guns, all the better” philosophy. Dismantling the Affordable Care Act, which Rich and I rely on at the moment. Doing away with subsidies for health insurance, which we again rely upon. Thinking about canceling the Iran agreement. Inept and incapable appointees at every cabinet department. Honestly, how can anyone support these f-ing morons? I wish Tillerson would just admit that’s what he said and be done with it. Despicable Harvey Weinstein is finally confronted publicly and once again the floodgates open with more and more women telling their stories. I am so sick of (mainly) old white men who think they are entitled to do and say anything they want to women. Every woman I know has encountered these guys throughout our lives. Isn’t it time for it to end?
With that in mind, read on and try not to be too despondent. Yes, I am in a mood. 🙂
Higher premiums predicted for people who supported Trump.
This. I really don’t get it.
It’s The Onion but it rings true.
Okay, a feel good story.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is a national treasure.
I’m impressed with these local folks in the American Black Cross.
Allrighty, have a lovely weekend, all. Get up, stand up, resist.
