Brrr & more on the way this weekend.
Am I cold - NO! First, I am the firemaster! lol
I get up every morning & get the fire going at 5.
My job - Norm does the chopping & stacking - I keep it going. Team work.
Norms task became much easier at Christmas - our son who remarked he was concerned about me keeping warm - & he made sure I'm not. Storm bought his dad a wood splitter making the job much easier & faster. Norms was thrilled... chop wood - carry water!
I was shocked when I opened my gift to find a Canada Goose parka! Expedition version - lots of pockets for sketchbooks, camera, cell phone, bank card, dog treats, peanuts & more for when I go on an expedition on our property, I can now explore in the winter!!
It's much easier to see in the woods & see me in my bright RED parka.
Storm knows I LOVE to feed the birds & want to walk the dogs. My last coat - forget it..
Too cold, I was house bound. No more! Yesterday in -24 I took a stroll with Daisy (the others find it too cold) and we loved every moment. Winter is beautiful - especially on a sunny day. I was cold - well my hands were- I could only take off my mitt (to take photos) for a few seconds before they became painful.
With Trigemenial neuralgia - I also have intense face pain in wind and cold, I could'nt believe it - I didn't feel a thing other than comfortable, warm & happy.
I love my son... my son loves me. ;)
Truly the greatest feeling to have on this planet. To be loved.
I posted on IG and instantly had someone start posting negative comments about my parka someone I've know for years & have always tried to friend, acknowledge, encourage & try to reach out to... NEVER once has this person (in YEARS) commented anything positive on my art or anything. I don't think she's even 'Liked' anything. Yet within seconds, 5 comments on my coat and how terrible it was. "Ironic, I was for wearing it to feed the birds..." FUCK that!
I messaged her right away and told her to "Fuck off." Don't USE me for your sounding board. She was MISERABLE & the comments were nasty, sure enough when I called her on this behaviour her excuse - "My cat died..." & she "was'nt getting any compassion from anyone" on social media on her post - WOW. Go figure.
So, that was exactly what hapened - she was in a shit mood and decided to VENT on my page. FUCK that. There is a delete button for a reason.
USE it. Don't allow it... would they behave this way in person?
Probably not. Had she wanted to have a conversation & sent me a private message - expressing her 'displeasure, yes.. I might have reacted differently but still would have told her to fuck off & go focus on something that is killing humans. I also asked if she commented on everyones page she see's with a Canada Goose parka - nope, I was just the lucky 'friend' she decided to take her frustrations out on. Unfriend.
Fuck off. Open your eyes & mind- the fucking president of the USA is locking kids in cages, blowing people up, people are dying at the border, gun violence is out of control - the word "war" is mentioned far too often these current days BUT you're going to call me out on my coat - because YOU are unhappy?
I love my coat - I love my son more for the thought of wanting to keep his mom warm in this extremely cold Canadian weather. Tomorrow they have a weather warning again...
I'm not worried.
I know I'll be warm with the coat I'm wearing & the LOVE that inspired it.
Next - 'Gods Treasures box! It took me a week to complete this last painting project.
I can't wait to fill it with treasures from God. D
A few photo of Doggo & I's adventure below .. I like the last photo & her idea.. lol
