Today, my day off, I actually went out for coffee with a friend. Being a classic introvert it’s quite hard to actually go out and leave the house. On my days off I am absolutely done and have nothing to give anyone. But this friend is lovely and kind and also Highly Sensitive and an Empath so we get each other. We sit down and immediately go into the heavy topics, bypassing small talk and idle chit chat. It’s so refreshing. After that I went for groceries and had the best conversation with a little girl of three while we waited in line. In less than 4 minutes she told me she wanted a doctor’s stethoscope and a doll with lots of hair and toes for Christmas. She also told me she’s going to be a big sister soon, how her day at preschool went, that her mom was at work and she missed someone named Bella.
Tomorrow I am get my wreck of a hair cut and coloured. It’s at the stage where the only word that comes to mind is frump. Or sheepdog.
This is Norbert’s brand new Christmas collar. The one that he’d had on a few days ago while sitting in the box has bells missing and all frayed to hell. He is feeling fancy now.
I’m making a roast for dinner tonight because it’s a roast beef kind of of day.
Yesterday at work I was looking at the legs of an elderly lady. The are swollen to 3 times their size, covered in festering sores and her feet and nails were so brittle and dry. They were causing her a great deal of pain. She was crying. I knelt in front of her and asked about her pain level and and if it was worse than yesterday. I then smiled and asked her about what her legs were like when she was 18. Her eyes lit up and she let out a laugh. She told me that she worked at The Orpheum and she won 3 pairs of nylons for the sexiest legs! She made my day.
