Still in "Recovery Mode" from our Cave Adventure.
Sometimes there really isn't ENOUGH coffee.
The place was pretty amazing and the decor was so well done that with candlelighting and the faux firebowls...it looked real.
Loved some of the detail.
The grotto hot tub was amazing...and even had a section cut out with tiny multi-sized lights on a black background that looked as though you were looking up through a hole in the cave roof to a night sky.
All in all...pretty well thought out.
Except for the waterfall type faucet that filled the hot tub.
I had never seen one of these before.
To say that this was a slow way to fill a two-person hot tub...would be...well...a vast understatement.
1. Clean the Cave.
2. Paint A House.
3. Make a 6 Course Dinner.
4. Take a 2 Hour Nap
5. Read War and Peace
6. Watch Dances with Wolves (...all three hours of it...)
7. Figure and File Your Taxes...and possibly get the Return Back.
8. Write a Novel.
9. Read the New Congressional Tax Bill.
10. Create a Child, and Raise him to Adulthood.
Yeah, you get the idea.
But it was great...and
Took the Tour de Terre Haute (and Farmersburg, Shelburn, & Bridgeton) the next day. Our bank is now up for sale. Tried to find John's old farmhouse from his childhood only to find it is now gone...and in its stead...a BASS Lake. We may have to come back with fishing poles!
Ended the day with ice cream from the Bridgeton Mill.
and came home to THIS...
"You left me...you freaking left me"
John's Gizmo-Cat was just as bad...climbing in his suitcase before our trip ever began.
LOL! She is so expressive. This is her
"You aren't actually LEAVING me???"
Shelby may have Resting Bitch Face. But Gizzy has Guilt Induction Face down to an Art-Form!
A Grand Adventure...and looking forward to our next, soon!
My friend, Loretta, settling in to assisted living life now. Enjoying the fact someone else is cleaning and cooking. Also that worrying over paying bills and maintaining a home is a thing of the past.
She is active in their church service, and likes their midweek Bible study.
Looking forward to seeing her (there) soon and Judy, Sharon, Diane and I are assembling a "care-box" of a few things we know she will love, needs, or just wants.
We still talk on the phone about every day and write back and forth weekly.
The best thing is, of course, that she is safe and has 24 hour nursing care.
Worked on the patio and played in the plants and borders (here) late this week.
My herb basket now overflowing and some of the mini-sunflowers already bloomed!
No movie or book of the week, this time...Just started the book and waiting to see a new release.
Now it is time for-
And Now What?????????????????
If you are not just shaking your head in disgust and a bit gob-smacked at this point. Well, you must be a Trump Supporter.
(...bless your heart...)
Spent three wonderful Trump and News-Free Days just after his open televised treason.
Did I come home to find that the GOP had suddenly realized what being Americans was all about and began the impeachment process?
Like Kids in Cages and a lot of the other crap they have turned their heads from or tried to explain away. Made excuses for.
I now realize that this GOP Congress is not going to hold this President accountable for ANYTHING.
Not. Even. Treason.
So we must.
There have been protests in front of the Whitehouse since the televised meeting with Putin...which occurred only hours after we learned that our Nation's elections were (and are) under cyber-attack from Russia.
They have popped up Nationwide now.
And Trump has, since, invited Putin to the White House in November.
Seriously....isn't this like catching someone in the middle of breaking into your house...and then inviting them to a dinner party later???
What the actual fuck?
Emboldened by his party- this guy
GOP Congressional Rep. Minnesota Jason Lewis actually bemoaned the fact he could no longer call women
(...by the way Minnesotans...Angie Craig is running against this POS in November...let's fix this...shall we...)
But back to Our Orange Wackadoo for a moment.
The news hasn't all been bad.
Because (to paraphrase James Comey)
"Lordy...there WAS tapes!!!"
Christmas came early in the form of several. Delivered, not by St. Nick, but by Trump's former Fixer...er...lawyer.
Cohen releasing them. Including one of their (his and Donald's) conversation concerning the payoff to a former affair/playboy bunny. You know...the one he said he didn't HAVE an affair with just after the birth of his son...and didn't pay off.
Kind of like he didn't DO or pay off Stormy Daniels and then forget to sign the NDA.
In Trump's defense...when you lie about as many things as he does on a regular basis...who can keep them all straight?
And because he (Trump) is as dumb as he is ugly...his first remarks upon hearing that his buddy-who-apparently-won't-take-a-bullet (or a lengthy prison sentence) for him were
"I can't believe he would DO this to me!"
(...not exactly the utterance of an innocent man...)
A deliciously karmic moment...when you remember how he betrayed all the women he has ever been married to.
"Betrayal sucks...doesn't it, Donnie?"
Wondering how Melania "stand by your man" is feeling right about now.
You know , honey...you're right.
I REALLY don't care.
So yeah...we need to stand shoulder to shoulder during midterms (less than 100 days away, now) and flip the Senate and House.
Blue No Matter Who.
Straight Party Ticket for 2018 and 2020.
And as soon as we get Congress back we need to FIX this mess.
Suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome?
Does the current political atmosphere leaving you feeling exhausted, hopeless, anxious,sleepless, angry?
Ask your Congressman in IMPEACHMENT is right for you.
Side Effects May Include: Sudden Bursts of Happiness, A Return to Democracy, Over-all Sense of Well-being, Better Sleep, Singing in the Shower, and Dancing in the Street.
IMPEACHMENT- It's not just for Nixon, anymore.
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
