Well, I guess no one wanted the messenger bag, which I guess just goes to show that I’m the “teddy bear guy.” 🙂 Not the “bag guy.” But, since it’s made up and done and I still need to sell it, I thought I’d slash it in half. THE PRICE, I mean, not the bag. So, If you’d like to have it, click here.
So, what’s been going on with me??? Wow. I know I’ve been threatening you with the last couple of blog posts that I would post a truly lengthy update on what’s been going on. There really hasn’t been too much of anything. I’m still rushing through my list of people that have ordered bears, knitting away to get them completed….one at a time. And everyone in order.
I now have a bike. Yes. I little more mobility and independence. There is this little coffee house just up the road called the Funky Monkey. I think I’m going to start heading there earlier in the day to get my knitting done, see if I can strike up some friendships. The place makes me a little nervous. Its vegan based…..so you know how the clientele can be. I’m going to give it a shot, though. I mean I’m an optimistic person…..just a touch nervous about the clientele.
I also have a working air conditioner now. A tiny little window unit that has been really good at keeping my small apartment nice and cool in this Florida heat. Now, I’m accustomed to the heat. I can handle it and have HAD to without choice for quite some time. You figure out ways around it. You keep in the shade, you get your errands done early in the day, you wear as little as possible if at home, or if the heat gets to be too much, book stores and libraries are a great place to squat and get cool without being accused of loitering. But, of course, I’d rather have the air conditioner. Now, I do! And I have to tell you my disposition sure is much better. So is my production. I’m knitting much faster!
I had something of a run in with GLAAD lately (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation). You see, its Gay Days in Orlando right now. I have A LOT of thoughts on that, which I will post at a later time. But, GLAAD aggravated me and I had to finally say something with directness to the LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) “community.”
I also had a great discussion with someone who said in conversation that they were, “I’m spiritual, not religious,” for which I can’t wait to share my thoughts.
….and something more to say on my feelings of loneliness. All of which I’ll write very shortly.
I only have three more Debbie Bliss bears left. Here’s the first one. I like the muzzle in cream mixed with that nice peanut buttery yarn. He’s 12 inches high and is made of 100% Merino wool. He’s ready to ship with a signed card. If you’d like to adopt him, click here.
Headed to get groceries before it gets too hot…..but if it does, screw it! I’ve got A/C!
