I feel really good today, just a tad bit tired, so maybe I will have two servings of green tea in the mornings. I had my green shake for breakfast and lunch. I had a salad for lunch with ranch dressing and feta cheese….OH HOW I HAVE MISSED THOSE! Oh yes, and a steak, but we wont talk about that.
Bailey and I did our typical 2-3 hour walk this morning. He has a new friend, Hawkins. Hawkins is a rescue from a town a few hours away. He got just barely side swiped by a girl on a bike, like he wasn’t hurt at all but it really really freaked him out and was letting out the worst yelps and was shaking and cowering. It was really sad. Bailey and I had gone ahead of them since we walk faster (his owner is an older man) but we had turned around to check on him. Even though he was not hurt it was just really sad to see. He was fine though and his dad said he was going to get lots of treats when he got home. The girl was young and felt bad too, I don’t think she knew how to react really but I told her he was a rescue and thats how some are. That also makes me feel guilty for eating meat, but meat gives my body energy, its just full of so many mixed feelings. At least in the villages the animals lived healthy lives till they were hunted.
Our state is opening back up this weekend. I am not sure if that means I will have to work at work now or what. I also wonder if that means all my applications I have out there will finally get looked at.
Does anyone else feel like the government really has no idea what its doing and that the stimulus money is shut up money? It almost feels like a game. First, the fear response never matched the true statistics, not compared to responses to other viruses, and the more we know about the virus the more the current response is even more dramatic. But with that….now theres more stimulus packages being talked about and states are opening back up. Its just weird. Like…I feel like theres a lot of officials in the dark about stuff…but I feel like theres bigger items going on. This system has always been fragile beyond what people ever could have realized, even myself really, I didn’t think a simple virus (because is terms of viruses it is extremely simple and isn’t even considered “deadly” in the viral world, yes it kills but that doesn’t make it deadly.) I feel like an economic collapse is already here, but we are pushing out as much money as possible to people so it wont realize it.
Also…in January the Doomsday Clock was 100 seconds to midnight, the closest its ever been. I am wondering….how close it would be now.
What about the wars? Do wars take a break for a virus?
What happened to North Koreas leader Kim Jong Un?
What about the climate?
What about the faltering relations between Russia and America? Is it America and China now? America against Russia, China, and the Middle East?
What about the borders? Can’t forget America against Mexico.
Uffda….nope….those ripple effects…make my head hurt.
Maybe…it is not an economic global collapse…but the end of our country as we know it? I have never actually seen “empires” fall, just in history I remember there being a lot of buildup and than a domino effect. I know theres a domino effect with the climate we are about to hit. As a world that is so intertwined, would the fall of one country effect the others?
GUESS WHOS STIMULUS SHOULD FINALLY BE GETTING MAILED! Yasssss.
I slept very well last night. I found this sleeping herbal tea from Traditional Medicinals. I was really excited to try it because it had almost the same ingredients that is in my Herb Pharm Relaxing Sleep extract, INCLUDING the catnip. I think some of my readers know how excited I get over the catnip, buuuut it definitely relaxed me and shut my mind off and I do not feel groggy in the slightest.
I am discovering my love of walking again. I remember when I was a mail carrier I loved the walking routes, it felt like my legs were wings in a sense. I am starting to feel that freedom again. This weekend I will be buying that CBD Oil from the shop, I am hoping that combined with the Your Super Mellow Yellow will make my body almost mega human and have no pain in the slightest. Mega human…I mean like…my age LOL. I am not even thirty yet, almost, but dang, I need to be nicer to my body. I wish I could tell the younger me that those wild nights that I thought would hit me when I was in the fifties, would actually hit my body a lot sooner.
So I am wanting to get healthier so I can hopefully take a trip this summer. I have mentioned before wanting to go to the crystal caves in South Dakota, well, I still definitely have the dream of doing so. But while I am at it, I also want to visit Cosmos and Devils Tower, and than drive over to Yellow Stone in Wyoming. I am thinking I will need two weeks to do this unfortunately so I am not exactly sure if it will happen this year. I could take a week off for either I suppose and do one next year. I just feel like I need to enjoy my life more and go do things. It all depends on how finances go I suppose, can’t really plan trips if the pandemic realllllly screwed up everything lol. But at the same time my mind says those bills will always be there and I need to enjoy myself too, so I don’t know yet.
Money brings no happiness and is the root of all evil, and every society built upon it has crumbled, its a fragile system that exploits the weak and never sees the good in people, their worth is based on how much money is made. Maybe one day it will be our talents and gifts that build a community. A society without money, scary to many, but we are not nearly advanced as we should be, maybe it’s because we have evils holding us back.
I hope everyone has a great day! The sun is shining here, the air is the wonderful sweetness of grass after a thunder boomer. I am going to shower and Bailey and I are going on our walk. Remember to love yourselves. Bye!
