Let There Be Coffee

Nothing is better than brewed coffee.
Hot.
Tasty.
Hot.
It is the juice that makes Jay a very civilized person in the morning.
And afternoon.
Rumors of my cutting down have been greatly exaggerated.
Saturday.
January 23/21.
The Day Southern Manitoba has been waiting for.
An easement in the restrictions.
Stores could now open up (25% of normal occupancy or 250 people which ever is lower) and sell anything.
I had planned to be at Walmart for 8 a.m.
Ended up closer to 9.
Initially the whole purpose was to see if I could find a kettle and burner.
Found a kettle for a great price but no burner.
Found the exact same coffee maker I had but for the silver front cover so I took that as well.
Looked at bras.
Ha those need to be tried on for looking at those B cups and then at myself one of them looks way too big and it ain’t me.
Did find my Collagen pills.
Rather Wal-marts brand but it is all the same.
And then I saw them.
Well first I saw a Unicorn Llama.
While standing debating I saw them.
Originally was only going to buy one but had to take two.
The lady behind me in the line up commented on how children like soft stuffies.
Me: I am not going to lie they are both for me.

She did not know how to respond.
They have been named Hocus and Pocus.
Absolutely fits.
Second time that I have used the self-checkouts and while still a little scared of them I am getting better.
Off to Sobeys for a three items.
Romaine.
Strawberries.
Whipping Cream.
Added on:
Watermelon
Lotto tickets.
Popped into Pet Valu.
I was going in to get Loki a little ball to play with.
I left with:
a pack of 3 cat nip balls.
A bed to put on the counter for Thomas to lie on.
A tent bed for either Loki or Lucky to sleep in.
Neither have indicated a like for it but that will change.
When I arrived home I woke T and made him come hang out with me.
He laid on the couch watching me unpack and set things up.
Informed me that it looked as though I had spent a lot of money.
He is great at saving his own money.
Why?
Because everything is connected to my bank account and when he makes purchases on his Xbox I pay for it.
Great thing is I can go into his account and email the amount back to myself.
Maybe that is something I will teach him how to do today.
I swept and vacuumed yesterday.
Which has exacerbated the shoulder.
Which had been exacerbated already with the fall.
So this morning I am chilling on the couch and enjoying my coffee.
Emmie/Emmellia is poking out her head a little more aggressively.
She wants me to tell her story in poems and long form.
Seeing as how I have not written a long story since I was 17 (so 31 years) I do not know where to start.
Also for myself this is a hard write.
There are going to be scenes that I cringe at writing.
Scenes that are going to be cringy to read/to edit.
Scenes that no one wants to think about.
Her story is not a pretty one.
Her story is not a perfect one.
Her story is one that she is adamant must be told.
Eventually I will figure it out but between subject matter and writing again in story length but Emmie is not a patient one.
Well she is.
Emmellia is not.
Have a wonderful Sunday all.
Noon today I am off for a massage.
Back home to couch to relax and nap after.
Decided that I am going to give T an easy day.
No chores.
Other than the litter boxes.
And feeding the cats.
But other than that he has a free day.

Pictures/Video are my own

Mistaken

Privilege
unearned
layer upon layer of deceit
no one knows
no one can know
our freedoms
our trust
merely a mirage.
We thought
(clearly mistaken)
that we could decide
choose
live life for ourselves
pursue our dreams
yet this is not true.
Allowed the illusion
delusion
chattel we are
yoked
penned within cities
towns
hamlets
none are safe.
With subtle movement
crowded towards an uncertain future
lead by vicious men
using blood money
to take over the world.
