Here we go…

Here comes Monday again! Over the weekend past, I really had to try and catch up with my blogs for this week. Saturday evening, I only had one post ready to go for this week! I have ONE…One post! Normally by the weekend, for the next week. I have a few ready to go…One…I do not believe it!

Here we are again though, on a Monday! As I write this I don’t know if I start work this week, always great to know, lol.

I did spend the weekend though, helping at my Grans house and cleaning out things there, and helping to bring things back and around. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but here in my state of Australia. Once you’ve been accepted into a home, then you only have a couple of days to get into it. Which I still find surprising. My mum and I have been up at her house all week, trying to shift through stuff and then we come to help collect stuff. But we’re going through most of it, when we all meet up again. So I’ve got her books, her reiki and tarot stuff. Some chairs that my Grandfathers, grandfather made…So great grandfather? And a bookcase.

I also found the time though, to put up some Halloween stuff. Since we’re not having a party this year, but at the moment, I’ll be doing trick and treat. I put just a few things around the outside of the house =D I have no idea if my neighbourhood is even doing it this year, but they did it last year. I can’t see why they wouldn’t do it this year?

At some point this weekend coming, I am also going to do my first ever Discord Channel Book Club stream! It’s going to be specifically kept to Discord. I think I know what I want to do as well. I saw some book things one can do for Halloween. I haven’t picked a day or time yet. So it’ll either be Friday evening my time, Saturday some day or possibly Sunday evening my time, Sunday day or morning your time. I should know by Friday what I’m specifically doing. But head on over now if you want too! ❤

Magic Mondays

I swear I had the weirdest weekend.

Like nothing out of the ordinary happened, but it was just weird…Do you know what I mean?

When I got my vaccine jab, I thought it might be a bit of a slow weekend, and the Friday night was, Saturday was…I slept in for a long time on the Sunday, as, because of my own anxieties I hadn’t slept well on the Friday. Sunday went fast, even on a day where if I had slept a long time, it was fast. I went to cook dinner, and the rice cooked fast, so then I had to cook the rest of it, I walked away to visit the loos. When I got back, it was all nearly burnt.

One pair of scissors has just disappeared. I found my sneakers in the back room, with NO clue how they got there. I know that the vaccine did ‘upset’ my body, as I expected it too. But when I saw the sneakers with no idea why they were in the back room. I didn’t think I was THAT bad, lol … Like I, jokingly, accused my partner of trying to mess with me.

You know, I think I just honestly remembered. When I got back from the jab. After a couple of hours, and realising I was doing okay. I thought I’d do a bit of gardening!!!! The weather was really beautiful! Ahh!!! Ahaha! After about a hour or so, I was starting to get tired. So I went into the back room, which looks out into the whole back yard, and I sat down. I must have taken them off then, why I didn’t take them to the bedroom, when I would have walked down to my room to slip into slippers…I don’t know, lol

I was happy, but not quiet right as well. The cat stepped on my vaccine jab, and after two days I can lift my arm a little bit more. The first night I had to get my partner to undo my bra, haha.

However, last week I discovered that I am now 70kgs, which is 154 pounds, 11 tonnes (I think). Which was depressing to me, because I don’t feel like I’m 70, lol. Up until the day I got my jab, I couldn’t think how was I going to change anything. It is partly to do with the medications that I’m on, that I can eat a lot. I never used to, and the food I did eat, was fruit or vegetable. I used to be able to make a packets of chips last a week, now they don’t last a hour, lol.

This weekend, including the day I got the jab, I’ve not done this. Like I ate things “as a treat”, but I couldn’t eat them all, and lord knows, I tried, lol. Is it possible that the vaccine has (hopefully) suppressed my appetite a little? I can still eat and enjoy eating still, I just can’t seem to eat as much.

Magically Monday #2

Welcome to my second “episode” of Magical Monday, where I am going to write nothing but something positive. Mondays have a very bad reputation and I get it, I mean most people’s working week starts on the Monday. From there it seems like a very long road. So lets try to make it fun.

For this Magic Monday, I wanted to talk about probably my most favourite musician in the whole wide world. Even if they are no longer apart of this world anymore. I almost have a whimsical love for this artist. Different time, different place, it totally would have happened,lol. He was kind of a whimsical person. I think it’s also one of the reasons that I liked my ex, a couple of years after we had broken up and I saw a photo of him. It freaked me out a lot, because my ex looked exactly like this artist. I do miss this artists beautiful spirit in the world.

Shall I stop speaking now?

I know that John probably talked the most about Peace, and I don’t think there isn’t a single soul that doesn’t love “Imagine” But too myself, George was the one who practised it the best. He wasn’t like John in that, George was a lot more gentle than John was. George was my kind of “peaceful” person. I just really think he was a sweet soul. Very dreamy, very laid back. Although apparently very serious when need be. He was just a dream.

Below is posted my favourite song of his, I don’t care it was “The Beatles” He wrote it. I always play it on the first day that I really feel like Spring is back. But also when I need cheering up, almost like a metaphorical sun.

It’s just another Manic Monday

I had this whole plan to write a whole post about the last week, my new job and what I’ve learnt in the last week…What I’ve learnt in the last week though has been REALLY depressing. I don’t even want to talk about the depressing stuff, so I’m only going to talk about good things…I feel like a lot that people need to see more positive stuff, because we’ve stopped believing!

 

  • So I started my new job last Monday and I’ve been really loving it, the staff are lovely and they are using a American Library Management System and instead of using the term “Check In” like we usually do, on the LMS, it’s got the word “Discharge” instead…We all agree, it’s a gross term. It doesn’t even make sense…Discharge goes out, not in…ewwww,lol
  • The police officer who shot and killed teenager Jordan Edwards, (and into a car full of teenagers, who I can only imagine how traumatised they are now) is actually being charged with murder. I think that’s the first time I’ve ever heard of this happening. They usually get off, or get suspended…So something is changing! Whether he’ll be found guilty or not is another question. Now I just want to say I love the police and there are good ones out there, but it’s time to the bad ones start to be held accountable. The bad give the good ones a seriously bad reputation and it’s just not good enough!
  • All of my favourite streamers were streaming on Twitch on the weekend and it was SO much fun! Please check them out Stacey Roy  , Darshelle Stevens
  • I’m actually all organised with all my Mothers Days gift for my Mum this year over this weekend, instead of waiting till the day before next weekend.

Exercise!!!

Probably not the first words that you want to see on a Monday morning…or maybe you do, I’m not here to judge you and your freakish ways (I am totally not being serious by the way ~.^).

However, I came across this article over the weekend and I thought that I would share it with you.

A new Canadian study finds exercise, anger may trigger heart attacks

According to the article going out to do a “full-on” exercise routine when you are particularly angry may actually increase your chances of getting a heart attack. I guess because working out when you are angry increases, pretty much everything. Your heart rate increases, your breathing does…EVERYTHING!

Which I found interesting, because I don’t know about everyone else, that’s the time I go out and have a long quick walks. I used to do them all the time in a past relationship! I used to just take off and go for a long walk.

Being angry or upset doubled the risk of suffering heart attack symptoms within an hour; heavy physical exertion did the same. Having both at the same time more than tripled the risk for a heart attack. The risk was greatest between 6 p.m. and midnight, and was independent of other factors such as smoking, high blood pressure or obesity.

I guess my question to you is what would you do instead? Do you, my lovely readers, have other ways to calm yourself down? Personally, I like listening to music, to soothe me.

Brain Block

I’ve had such an interesting weekend, in that I did a bit of everything this week…Had a bit of a party, did a bit of retail therapy and had lunch with the family which then turned into dinner as we helped my cousin start moving into her new house.

So now my brain is completely blocked with something to actually write this morning. I have so many big things that could possibly be around the corner and I don’t know if they’re going to happen or not…Don’t you just hate that feeling!lol

What about you?

As you can probably all imagine I am little tired this Monday morning, luckily I have no work, but you always wake up at the same time anyways. I am so tired though I cannot think at all what to write for today.

So I thought that I would ask how your weekend went, how did your weekend shape up to be? Here a few things that happened over the weekend from all over the globe:

  1. Kenya torches Worlds biggest ivory bonfire to save Elephants
  2. Barack Obama roasts Donald Trump at Correspondents dinner
  3. Indian teen shoots himself in head taking selfie with gun
  4. Survivor rescued 13 days after deadly Ecuador quake
  5. A-League Grand Final: Adelaide United beat Western Sydney Wanderers 3-1 in thriller to take first title!
