Friday went well at work. I was finally left alone enough to be able to make some progress toward Month-End. And also finished the one return that was left for Quarter End. Friday night we had lobster ravioli in a homemade butter, lemon, wine sauce that George made. It was 5-star quality.
Saturday Morning Errands
Saturday morning I made the breakfast above. You can’t see the fried eggs but I made fried eggs, bacon and biscuits – which I had butter and cinnamon honey on mine. I have not made breakfast in a long time and decided we should use these ingredients up. I was up at 4:30 as Dexter was whining and hungry. He slept with me from 2:30 to 4:30 and was really wanting me to get up at my normal weekly time. So I didn’t get to sleep in. George let me sleep a lot the last few weekends so I let him sleep this time. Getting up so early I get a LOT done, and more time to play later.
After cleaning the kitchen and getting several loads of laundry done, I left to go to Publix to get the fruit Mom wanted and some peanut butter. She later texted and had me add bacon bits and pecans. I also bought my grocery needs – everything except the cold or freezer items. Those will have to wait as I wasn’t going directly home. Then I went to KFC to get a bucket of chicken. Mom had wanted us to eat lunch with her and I told her I wasn’t sure about our timing (mainly wasn’t sure as I had not talked to George and it depended on the weather and timing and his intentions for yard work). I didn’t want to box us in for plans and then have to change them or commit to them. Sometimes it is nice just to NOT have plans, you know. But as it turned out – we ended up eating some with her. I had a piece of chicken and a tablespoon of potatoes and tablespoon of slaw. I didn’t eat any biscuits. The more we could leave for Mom the better, for at least another meal.
George met me out there with Mom’s car so we could drop that off and I got her mail, we ate some KFC, took her trash out, cleaned her guest toilet. She is still hurting when she walks. But her foot is better. George brought Dexter with him and Dexter likes Fancy but Fancy being an older dog and not feeling too good is in NO mood for Dexter. She showed her teeth which only made Dexter want to toy and play with her. Before I got there, Dexter pounced on Mom’s sore foot. So George had to keep Dexter on a leash. Dexter would knock Mom over if she stood up- he is definitely a big strong doggie. Wouldn’t mean to but just loves to jump and love on you. Now that he is bigger, we are going to have to stop him from that. He ends up hitting you in all the wrong places. His paws reach up to my chest level which hurts when you are in PJ’s and also he has been known to “take George out” in a few places below, lol!
I also ordered Mom another 32 oz water cup. She has used it every day and night for years. It was thundering and lightning and about to storm when we came home. So I opted out of going shopping for my capri jeans and Mom’s lounging pants. My goal was to defer that to today. And unless something changes, I’ll not be able to do that today either. I will explain later.
Signs in the Universe
While leaving Mom’s I saw this incredible sphere of beautiful colors, like the rainbow. If you look closely it appears to have an eye in it. Maybe it was the eye of God or Jesus peeking down. Can you see it? It’s like a round rainbow.
More pretty clouds from earlier in the day below. Below, the clouds began building early in the day.
I could sit and watch them move around all day. But I was so glad to have caught this colorful rainbow sphere above. It was truly spectacular to behold.
Our earth and the universe is definitely showing signs of change and unusual behavior, intensifying in displeasure of all the evil that is occurring upon it. It is as if a taste of “the four horseman” have been delivered already too. (Revelations, end times, prophesy, what the Bible says, Daniel). This all has to do with the antiChrist, conquest, war, famine, sickness, death as a part of the “end times”. Most don’t understand Revelations – me neither but I’m doing the most excellent study right now by someone who has great knowledge of Hebrew and Greek and understanding of the original translations. Most choose to ignore it (Revelations) as it’s too scary. It’s too overly visual to even think of it. God allowed Daniel to see it. Even God told Daniel “seal it” (the scroll) until the end. He didn’t want all of it to be revealed or repeated yet. But in the end, ALL WILL understand whether they want to or not because this knowledge will be increased / revealed at that time. God says the earth will have birth pains of the end times. You can see it in the news daily. Not believe the news so much? Me neither. I’m witnessing with my own eyes.
No man knows the day nor the hour, but if you study God’s pattern of time with everything else he has done so far, we are definitely in the season. The time is near. IF anyone is interested in this YouTube study I’m doing, I’ll post it again for you. Just let me know in the comments. I don’t want to scare anyone or make you have nightmares. But it is something we all need to know and be aware of and be ready for. As it will happen like a thief in the night when the Lord comes again and takes His church, His bride, His body of believers. He will take them so that do not have to endure the roughest times to come.
These clouds remind me of all that the Bible has said.
After Mom’s we came home and I began working on the next video. I’m close to being done. I had to do a lot of voice over work. I am VERY pleased with my last training session in which another vlogger made suggestions on settings to use. That has worked well. I think when you see the next video you will see that it did pretty good for my vlog session. I video’d in current time, taking you all back to January of 2022. Then George made an excellent dinner. It may not look very good here, but it was.
Dexter Finally Discovers the Bed is for Resting and Sleeping, Not Playing
Now that he has discovered he can jump on the bed, he will go and rest on it some. Yesterday I couldn’t find him in his usual spots – normally in the room with me. But I was moving all over and I guess he got tired of following and jumped on my bed for a nap all curled up.
So he has appreciated the bed for a nap. After George went to bed and lights out and I went to bed too and shut my door, he scratched on my door and whined. I thought to myself maybe he gets it. I opened the door, he jumped on the bed, scratched his spot, and curled up and snuggled beside me. Yay. He did not do zoomies in the bed, didn’t bark at me, didn’t paw at me to play. He just curled up beside me and I put my arms around him and pet him and told him “Good Boy”. After a few minutes he changed spots. I think it was hot. He moved around some on the bed but never got down. I woke up a lot conscious that he was there and being worried about it in the back of my mind. Would he wake up and be confused and pee on the carpeted floor? Can dogs see at night? Could he see the hall where his pee pads were? Would he get up and chew on my shoes from the shoe stand in the corner? He stayed in bed with me all night. At 3:30 he was ready to get up but I said “go back to seeeeepy” and he tried to. At 4:20 he stood up and jumped off the bed. I decided to go ahead and get up. I would not be able to sleep anyway wondering if he was going to get my shoes, lol.
Do I have a Stomach Bug? Or Was it Something I ate?
So when I got up this morning, I didn’t feel good – mainly just tired, cold, and as I drank coffee I began to get a little nauseated. But mainly I’ve had just really bad —let’s just say “issues”. So I have had to be near the girls room so to speak. I’m not sure if it was something I ate or I have a bug. I have no fever, and while I have been a little stopped up, at first this morning – even that is gone. I’m OFTEN like that though with sinuses. I feel cold but definitely no fever and not much of an appetite. But I’m trying to stay hydrated. Even though I don’t want much. I had a piece of cheese – always worked before, LOL LOL. And some baked Cheetos b/c that is the only thing that sounds good. Salty potato chips. I went back to bed for an hour or so when George got up – so someone would be with little Scuttlebutt (Dexter).
So needless to say. No church today. And likely NO SHOPPING today until I can get this figured out or it subsides. I have much to do this week.
The Week Ahead
Well today, I still need to fold some towels, put my meds and vitamins in the case, change George’s sheets, wrap his gifts. One hasn’t arrived yet. I need to finally take a shower, maybe finish this video up.
This week I need to get some baby gift wrap paper. Why do I continue to buy big things that won’t go in a sack and takes lot of paper, lol? I need to wrap the baby gifts for an upcoming shower.
I need to go in handle some personal but important email – insurance stuff. Need to go on line and print something out.
The dog needs a bath, but we’ve not done it yet. It has to be a coordinated effort. We are kinda scared, lol. But I think the walk in shower will be the best option. I need a combat bra though. Might wear a bathing suit for protection, LOL. I kinda hate to take for grooming until after he is neutered in case they put them all together, ya know? Or we can just take him for the big DIY bath thing. I need to do training on how to brush his teeth and how to do his ears. Also to work on training too.
I get my hair cut on Thursday.
I need to go to Belk and find my jeans and find Mom some casual pants to lounge in. This will probably end up being a weeklong or even monthlong quest. Since Mom’s not with me that means having to take it to her to try on for her part, but I know she’ll be glad to have something comfy to wear. That shopping was going to be today but not unless the issues improve. And I’m not sure it’s not a virus so kinda hate to go out in Public. But I suppose I’ll be in my office tomorrow. Someone needs to do payroll and I’m not wanting to burn any PTO time either yet. I feel good enough to do this blog entry. I just have to be close to a restroom. I’m sipping green tea and have been having luck with baked Cheeto’s to not be nauseated. I might have a piece of bread and peanut butter shortly.
And next Saturday is Fancy’s vet appointment (Mom’s Dog) and then George’s taco lunch out if Mom feels like it.
I will finish Month End (surely). lol
All the Things I Want to Do that I Can’t Get to Because I’d Rather be Videoing and Catching Those Up:
- Doggie videos (mentioned above for training, ears, teeth)
- Looking at and redefining my Blog, Instagram, YouTube
- Learning Tube Buddy
- Playing around and learning how to use Canva with the YouTube videos in Final Cut Pro
- More Final Cut Pro lessons
- More Canon Lessons
- A study on SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
- Jewelry Project
- Working on the Basement to get rid of or organize things but a lot of it is George’s
- There’s more but I’ll stop with that. It’s mainly all the things I’ve mentioned before.
We always end up getting done the things we either have to or want to do the most. I’ll be back mid-week unless I end up making an extra post along the way if time comes my way.
Is there anything you would like me to blog about specifically? Do you have any questions? Or curiosities? lol
So what are you guys up to this weekend?

Spiral doodle chicken! Sounds delicious. Dexter is a cutie!
Thank you! Enjoy your Sunday!
You too. 🌞
Maybe you just got a bug of sorts. I go for Cheese-its & coke or ginger ale. 😋
Hopefully you’ll be better by tomorrow.
That Dexter is something else. We take our girl to the vet for a bath. Most vets have that service. It’s safe & she likes it. Plus they need to clean their anal glands. TMI sorry for anyone reading this.
What was the dish George fixed with pasta? I couldn’t tell.
Oh yeah I forgot about the anal glands lol 😂
The noodle chix didn’t come up as a video originally.
Ya, you don’t want Dexter scootin’ around. 🤣
Hmm wonder what the video did instead? I used WordPress’ video portal so not sure. It worked on my end but things can break.
Hi Sonya, Been a nice quiet weekend Weather has been warm but not to hot so I’ve been able to sit out and read which is great. But forecast for week is that it’s to get hotter and hotter so not quite so nice. We are getting rather short of water as I’ve have had so little water last month and no rain at all for the next 10 says at least. I see various places have had grass fires careless people having BBQs and not putting them out properly. Glad you got so much done over these last few days. Hope you manage to give Dexter a bath, maybe he would enjoy a shower ? I know my wee Masy liked it better. Hope the coming week goes well and you feel much better. I think I may have missed iwhat happened at the Drs. was everything ok ? Take care. God Bless .
It was a physical and no results from blood work yet. Mom canceled her heart test and appointment.
Stay cool and hope the water does not go into shortage.
If it’s not too much trouble, I would like to learn more about Revelation . I really struggle trying to understand it. I am older than dirt and just now have realized that I totally have misunderstood something in Matthew all these decades . Good grief – I should know better ! Thankful for God’s mercies …and His faithfulness. Have a good work week . Dexter is so cute !! It’s 4:19 am Monday morning , and you have made me hungry for some KFC! Lol
Ok I’ll do a blog post with the embed of the first study in it.
Thank you … absolutely no hurry . I know your plate is full . (Dan and I listened to an excellent minister in Knoxville last year for several weeks covering Revelation .) But I still struggle with it . Repetition helps me .
Failed to say that I pray your mother’s gout continues to improve.
Thank you Dee! It’s already up and going this morning. Appreciate your prayers. Mom is up and going but still having some pain. At least she can walk. I hope it doesn’t repeat itself again and again.
