What I’ve Been Up To During the Pandemic

I’m a person that normally goes out several times a week (and would do so even more, if I had more energy after teaching and writing). In particular, I love the Bishop Arts District in the south area of Dallas, with its Emporium Pie Shop, Eno’s Pizza, Serve Cafe, and Wild Detectives Bookstore, among many other places.

However, as COVID-19 has swept across the U.S., I have been staying inside and, much to my surprise, knocked a ton of things off of my to-do list at home. These are things I normally would have postponed indefinitely.

So far, I have 1.) painted the pantry, 2.) organized my room, 3.) put baskets on the guest bedroom wall for my mother to store yarn in, 4.) emptied one of my storage units, so I don’t have to pay for it anymore, 5.) painted my mother’s room, 6.) painted my room, and 7.) added new bedding to my room.

It is amazing what a little paint will do!

Today, having finished these major items, I was able to enjoy the fruits of my labor. Pics below!

It took about a month and a half to accomplish all of this. So, so pleased with the final result. Resting today and enjoying the fruits of my labor!

    You’ve done so well. The white walls look crisp an clean. Those other colors looked spent and tacky. Good for you. I wish my old place was in check as well !

      Thank you so much! I am utterly exhausted. 😂😭 If the pandemic hadn’t occurred, I doubt I would have gotten all of this done.

      My mom told me that her bedroom hadn’t been painted since the 80s! 😬 So glad that’s no longer the case!

Perish by @LCBarlowAuthor gives us Jack coming into her own as a woman.
Her views on right and wrong may be a bit skewed, but if you cross one of her lines it's over for you; forgiveness is not on the menu today.

Review of Pivot (Book one of the Jack Harper Trilogy) by L.C. Barlow @LCBarlowAuthor http://sassyredheadbookreviews.blog/2020/08/08/review-of-pivot-book-one-of-the-jack-harper-trilogy-by-l-c-barlow-lcbarlowauthor/

Pivot by @LCBarlowAuthor may have had the most efficient polarizing effect over my opinions on two main characters ever.... I would have died/killed for Jack before chapter 1 ended.
It just gets better from there, great 1st in a trilogy.
