Cloned With Animal Print

Today I arrived at the Rosenberg Library to work. On my way, I stopped in the women's room first. As I was washing my hands, another woman stepped out of the stall to wash her hands too.

I exclaimed and said, "hey, look at us!" I was wearing long pants of the same animal print and fabric of the skirt she had on. Unbelievable! I told her she made my day! I will have a photo of my pants to post later.

Skin-Friendly Soak

This is a bath recommended by my doctor to relieve itchiness and eczema, to be done once or twice a day. It's easy to do and requires little effort.

While preparing a warm bath, add:

1/2 Cup Rolled Oats in a Cheesecloth and tied
1/2 Cup of Powdered Milk
Oil of your choice (I prefer Argan Oil.)

I use a drain cover so that I can remove any residue that might otherwise clog the drain. Discard the oat meal bundle. Enjoy softer skin and the healing properties of Oatmeal, Milk and Argan Oil.

Lucky Tonight

Just got back from Lucky where I picked up a couple things. They had closed the self check-out. Only three lanes were open. They were all backed-up. I tried to get the checker's attention about it but she never heard me. So I got brave and yelled THREE IS A CROWD!!

Then someone immediately responded and got on the intercom and called for another checker to come to the front and open up a check stand. The other shoppers in line all thanked me. Suddenly we all were able to get through real quickly.

Then a young man opened up Number 7 and said he'll take the next one in line. Everyone felt resolved to let me go. What a deal! It pays sometimes to have a big mouth. But I knew that THREE IS A CROWD be their protocol from a time when I worked for them at another location.

Getting a Boost on New Years Day

Today The Goodwill is open today. I went in and came out with four pieces of apparel. I call it my Candy Store or Toy Store, depending on my mood on a given day.

Today's visit was special, given that it's New Years Day. The store was far less crowded and shopping felt more relaxed. Another lady was in their trying on outerwear. She was a size XL. I forget how it was I began to engage with her but I found myself helping her shop. It was quite fun and she was receptive.

Oh yeah! Now I remember! As she was trying on jackets, she was hanging them so that they were draped across the rack and hiding other hung cloths under them. I asked if they were hers and she said she was just trying them on. I would tend to get disgruntled when I would shop and someone would leave clothes hanging like that without putting them back properly. It would seem discourteous.

But this time no one fussed and I found pleasure in helping her locate jackets, coats and sweaters that looked becoming on her. As it is, I think she bought every one of them. It made me feel so good to have helped someone look their best. I told a person who works there about it. Talk about a boost! That is a fine way to begin a new year!
