Yesterday I did a demonstration at Foods for Life and it went well. I must have put on about an inch of the Super Powers Potion on my face as I helped folks sample it. I love doing this, meeting people. Amazing and kind people out there. Sad, sad people. One woman, very prettily dressed with red rimmed glasses and a pretty hat, very fair skin, sweet demeanor, told me she had skin cancer and showed me the scars on her arm. I gave her a hug. She told me she was 83, same age as my mother. The saddest part was though, she is all alone. I woke up today wishing I would have asked for her number so I could go over to her place and help her out a bit. I gave her another hug. It kills me she is all alone, suffering with skin cancer.
I was deeply blessed to go to my parents house and care for my mother. If I could not have done that I would have lost my mind. I needed to be with her and help her any way I could, be there so I could be there. Be there to help my father, share his work load, and the stress of my mother being in excruciating pain for so long.
I like talking to people, that is what I liked about waitressing. (still no call backs from sending my resume out recently--I revamped it, hope that helps, sheesh--won't give up hope, the mantra is Help is on the way.
I sold a bunch of SPP too.
|Go away groundhog, ammonia to repel them :)|
I got a box of wildflower seeds while at my parents house and planted some there. I am excited to see if they come up. I adore wildflowers. I sowed some here too and hoping for the best. Ah wildflowers how I love thee.
I planted some bean seeds I had when the groundhog ate all the plants int he front and they are doing well. I will support them asap with some bamboo, that ugly blue fence does not look appetizing at all.
|green beans mmmmmm|
|wildflowers will bloom here yay|
The city put a tree in on the inside of her fence, where there is also a fire hydrant. A nice sapling. She told my neighbor who I do really like that she was going to do nothing because she didnt want this tree. The first 2-3 years the tree needs about 5 gallons of water a day, in this sort of dry hot weather especially. She got this tree like three weeks ago. It is starving for water, it is gasping for water and I think she is a big ugly meanie for not helping this sapling survive. I had big plans of going stealth in the night and feeding it 5 gallons of water but I slept all night long, I really needed the rest.
I woke up fist thing thinking of this poor tree and I called 311. I was connected and the woman was amazed I called. She gave me so many accolades for calling. She kept me on hold while she went and spoke to Forestry. She came back and told me the woman there told her she loved me and wished more people were like me. The woman told me she loved me too. It brightened my day for certain. I did not expect that reaction, in fact was more anticipating an aloof response and the government seems to show more often than not. I was pleased with these departments and thought I could work in a place where they care about trees and people who care about them too.
Apparently they will send someone and water the tree and even might attach some sort of watering bucket so the tree does thrive. Tonight if I can I will go water that tree too. My neighbor right next to me got a tree yesterday nd she is quite negligent as well, but hers is not malicious. I will sneak over there and water her tree in the night too. I would go take a picture of the sad tree but I do not want her to see me and know it was me who snitched on her. Fuck her and her kind.
