Sassybear’s Sunday 7

Something I thought about:

How fickle life is. I recently reconnected with a cousin I was previously only light acquaintances with. We were having fun getting to know each other again. Then she died suddenly Friday night. Very jarring and sad.

Something I saw:

A lots of fun things at various antique and curiosity shops:

Something I heard:

A recorded performance of “Soon in the morning I will rise” by the Capital Pride Singers, an LGBTQ+ chorus I helped found, performed in, and was President of for several years. I found it while scrolling through my iTunes library. It brought back fond memories of singing with a group on stage. I miss it.

Something I tasted:

An amazing pork loin with shredded sweet potato side for my early birthday dinner with the BFJ.

Something I learned:

If Mogo’s (my car) fuel filler door is slightly ajar, my car will make a funky sound when I lock it.

Something I accomplished:

I found my work laptop power cord, which I thought I had lost, which relieved a lot of anxiety for me.

Something I bought:

A few new items for my various collections: Rainbow dishware, Giraffes, Snoopy dishes, and a Batman Beyond statue

  1. OMG sorry about your cousin!
    Very jarring, indeed. But also, my grandma would say that such is life.

    I love the idea of going to thrift shops and taking pics. Have never done it. You may have started a trend. Love the hats! And the glasses. BTW, you’re giving me Hot German Instructor on Vacation in Vienna Looking for Ringstrasse vibes in that second pic. Just letting you know.

  2. Yes, life is fickle. People make sudden exits from our lives: sometimes because they die, sometimes because they drop contact, sometimes for other reasons.

    Did Jeffrey really call and say you could buy whatever you wanted? How thoughtful of him! I am glad you showed restraint and did not overload the car going back home.

    Something I learned: you helped found a chorus?? I am in awe. But it sounds as if you don’t sing these days?


  3. Take time, and take care of yourself.
    Power supplies, I bought a couple of extras on Amazon, so I don’t have to move them, I keep a spare in my travel bag. The office IT folks acted like a second power supply would bankrupt the western world, it was like $15 online.

    • I usually leave my power cord at home in my home office, since the “hub” I connect at work also acts as a charger. In this instance, I moved it to work upstairs and put it in the side zipped pocket of my laptop bag (which I never do) and failed to look there during my initial panic search.

      Our agency had grown quite stingy and will not spend a cent they don’t have to, so I’ve taken to buying my own work supplies as needed, to avoid the 5 day back and forth with purchasing yo get a box of file folders approved. Sigh.

  4. I’m sorry to hear about the cousin. That’s my biggest fear about talking with friends now that we’re all over 50. You never know when it will all end.

    I see a Beyond Batman!
