Lots Of Fala

and some lalala too

First fire in fireplace

Paying attention? The deer changed

What normally is a one day decorating 
affair is dragging out,
due to "issues" but I am determined.
Photos of living room tree etc coming 
in a few days. All the packages are wrapped
and stockings hung but tree is not decorated
but it is up.

Of course I was due for another 
Urgent Care run on Saturday.
Another bronchial infection. I've been so careful.
Only went into crowds one day last weekend
with pal Sue for our annual IKEA day.
She reminded me I became ill last year 
right after IKEA day.
Perhaps I will only go to IKEA in summertime?

Michigan blueberry maple streusel toast
with real butter and earl grey
New favorite mug and butter keeper.
comfort food

Went with some lighter fare for kitchen and  
laundry hall this year. Cheerful
Yep, wreath is hanging crooked. 
Original hanger was put on improperly,
(on list to fix).

Gluttony and Gobble

I'll say it again, I love them so much!

(check it out)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I will spare you my opinion on how $#@^&%
up this holiday is as we are celebrating a lie;
so "Happy Get Together" with your families 
and let the political and religious fall out begin,
and maybe just maybe, share with the young ones the truth 
about the native americans and pilgrims,
as in school they still teach the lies and make
 cute pilgrim hats.

Have the kids pull out their phones and google it
and then share with the adults,
many of whom won't know the story either. 

Ready Set Gluttony

It's Beginning

I was talking to several friends yesterday 
and we were all beginning to decorate, 
much earlier than usual.

My arm chair psychology?

We all need the happy.
We desperately need to immerse ourselves
in the celebration of peace and love
instead of the anger, hatred and despair
surrounding us due to one evil demagogue,
bathed in bigoted stupidity,
who thumbs up his best buddy,
 an assassin, who is intent on 
bringing down our democracy.

Bring on the trees, the holly
 the cookies, stockings,
and twinkle lights. 
Surround us with families and friends we love.
Share the carols, the hymns and 
shout it from the rooftops
that we yearn for peace, equality, kindness and love.

Not voting while you have the freedom to do so
is an unforgivable act as far as I'm concerned. 
 Millions have died and continue to die  
for the right to be free and to be free from persecution. 
Millions in the world right now
yearn to vote, to choose futures for their children.

This caravan that 45 
is fear-mongering contains just such folks.
Common sense says people who are walking 
thousands of miles and have left everything behind
 and are carrying their children on their backs
 are desperately yearning
for freedom and a safe place to be.

Cold Hard facts.
We may not have most of our freedoms
for very much longer. 
Do not for one second think it cannot
happen here, the groundwork has been in the 
works for decades and this insane 45
is allowing it into the core of government
 and we need to elect people 
who will PROTECT 
and ensure the continuation of our founding
fathers values that have made this democracy work.

It's short about 7 minutes

Notice George Washington, 
the American flag hanging with the NAZI flag
young boys dancing gleefully
as a protester is beaten and stripped, 
attacking the free press...
Look and sound familiar?

From the Smithsonian about the film:
"It really illustrated that the tactics of demagogues have been the same throughout the ages. They attack the press, using sarcasm and humor. They tell their followers that they are the true Americans (or Germans or Spartans or…). And they encourage their followers to “take their country back” from whatever minority group has ruined it.”
I am resisting
 I am scared shitless
for my kids and yours.
