We missed #WorldSelfieDay Yesterday, so Maisie and I (and my son) made up for it today lol
NOT bad for almost 50 years old, huh?
I noticed that my skin responded really well to this. I am super stoked about it!
The garden/landscaping project continues!
We had a forlorn little terracotta garden rabbit that was hidden in the brush, unpainted, and I wanted to paint it and give the poor old thing a makeover.
Maisie INSISTED on choosing the spray paint colors this go ’round, so he had to be hot pink. I didn’t do the greatest job with the spray painting, I honestly just wanted to get it over with. However, it looked really creepy without ‘real’ looking eyes, so the child insisted Mr. Bun get them.
I didn’t have any craft paint, so we used sharpies, which turned out to her satisfaction, as far as hot pink bunnies go.
He still looks a little sad and lonely, but at least he now has pizzazz and eyes.
Maisie was very pleased with this project, so all’s well that end’s well!
I’ve been wanting on of these things for years!
Now, the ones in the pics aren’t MY tree, I just found a smaller one that will fit a teeny hillock on the NW corner of my garden.
My friend is delivering it in about 30 minutes. Granted, mine is much smaller- about 16″ at base and 5 feet tall, but it is the perfect size for where I want to place it.
I plan on making a fairy garden for Maisie nearby.
I love lots of whimsy in my gardens and Maisie loves helping outside. We live in a very artsy, laid-back beach town- so growing food on your lawn and sculptures are pretty much the norm in my book.
My gnomes will appreciate this, too.
BTW, my mysterious gnome problem ceased about 2 yrs ago.
They added the new “French Kiss” movie site on Facebook.
As an aside, they sadly and hilariously misspelled the co-author’s name. Her name is Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon- and it was changed to “Ludwig” a number of times, even after we pointed this out.
The saddest part was when Christine tried to participate in our group chats with these people, they’d ignore her comments completely, as if she were invisible.
It’s been corrected now on the page, but it reminds me of this meme from “Parks and Recreation”:
I thought about things, about winding this feud up and getting back to real life, because it’s like arguing with aliens.
What these people seem to not comprehend, because they don’t seem to display typical human emotion, was that the proper thing to would have been:
1. NOT HAVE A PERSON CALL AND THREATEN MY HOUSEHOLD IN THE FIRST PLACE
2. APOLOGIZED FOR THESE THINGS and addressed the part where a small child had been caught in their crosshairs AND TRAUMATIZED.
I don’t know what some folks are taught, but there has to be some sort of moral high ground.
They only seem to understand narcissism and fake victimization. It’s all for the glory for them, apparently. Nothing else and nobody else matters.
That is a sad state of affairs for them, in my opinion.
Suddenly, I find my blog seems to be quite popular in the Netherlands and Belgium, where they live on the Antwerp/Kapellen/Putte border area.
People have actually been quite decent about this and I am touched by some of the messages received from you. I thank you all so much for your support.
Dank je wel et Merci Beaucoup, jamais en altijd.
I have always loved the Dutch and Flemish people.
I only had ONE semi-nasty message from her camp- it was a fellow from Instagram.
I can absolutely see how this person could manipulate others into feeling sorry for them, to do her bidding. I was ONE OF THESE PEOPLE originally. I totally get it.
I will post below:
She is currently OBSESSED with My Little Pony.
The happy highlight of the day was the little concert she threw this morning.
Pleasant posts are so much nicer than the others.
UPDATE: HER ‘GAP LAWYER’ WAS A STOCK PHOTO- NICE TRY. SHE USED A ROYALTY FREE STOCK PHOTO TO THREATEN ME THIS TIME.
Saw an UNKNOWN call come in on the phone. It was the actress.
We recorded it all.
Basically, the summary:
I had to tell her that it was less about credits & more about the actual THREATS:
ONE SIMPLY DOES NOT HAVE strangers call and threaten to fly to Amereeeeeca and attack someone/their family.
She simpered “Why did you write that?”
Me: “We NEVER have strangers call others & threaten to attack them in their homes”
S: “WHY DID YOU WRITE THIS, WHAT DID I DO TO YOU?”
Me: “Please re-read manuscript”
LATER, I receive THIS email:
She is now having sales ladies from the Gap attack & serve me with legalese.
Things must be mighty bad in the movie industry if her legal representation works in retail.
Since I saved and screenshot-ted everything she wrote- and video’d all the calls, with witnesses in the room, go ahead. Send you legal reps from Dollar Tree next.
Also, though I am not one to talk, Tilly ought to use spellcheck.
