#One-Liner Wednesday & JusJoJan 1-12-22

Thus gift helps me organize my Diamond Art gems.

I’m not sure if there is a particular theme today, but just in case the word is clutter:

“I’m discovering I want to declutter my life and get as organized as my Diamond Art gems are.”

One-Liner Wednesday


I have to insert a note here and just confess that this case is really not organized except for the gems. It has so much extra stuff in it (that came with it) that I need to find someone in the Diamond Art destashing group who might need some of it. Here is a bag of all the leftovers from past projects.

Bag of extra gems I can’t use on future projects.

Now if I was really talented, I could use all of these extra gems on a Diamond art project I came up with on my own, but I am not that talented. I need the kits which have the design already on it, with the coordinating numbers and symbols. Like good knitters don’t need a pattern, I’m not a designer. Oh well, I still love the projects that I do! Here’s hoping I get the rest of my life decluttered, my mind included! 😜

One-Liner Wednesday No Regrets

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

One-Liner Wednesday & WOD Challenge 2/17/21

My house upon returning after the power outage, before we got an additional one or two inches last night.

What fresh hell is this??

The frozen pool 🥶

Oh, I know. Many of you would be overjoyed at seeing the rare Texas snow ❄️ but ours came with a hefty price. No snowmen, or frolicking in the snow. Temps hovered in the single digits, we and millions of others lost power statewide, this being such a rare event here in Texas. The DFW metroplex has never seen these kinds of temps and our energy companies are overwhelmed, as well as the wind energy companies. They forced massive rolling blackouts, putting many, if not most, people dealing with broken pipes, and no heat.

Luckily, my brother has power and a fireplace. He invited us to stay with him until our power came back on yesterday afternoon. Now, it’s 64 in my house, but I am home. Cuddled up under blankets, so far still in my pjs, just trying to stay warm. Not leaving this house unless absolutely necessary. My front yard looks like a winter wonderland and the back yard looks frigid and uninviting. The pool is frozen on top and I hope and pray the pump isn’t broken. Other than that, I feel lucky to be in my own home, blessed I have food, and feeling sorry for all those that don’t.

We are being asked to conserve water, no showering, washing clothes or using the dishwasher. Keep our heat low, and unplug anything not absolutely necessary. Pray our power stays on and we can help someone less fortunate than us if necessary. My friend Stephanie and her dad were without power for all of Monday and Tuesday until last night. I’m so glad they got firewood and a starter, those fireplaces really help. We have one, but since we haven’t ever used it, we can’t start now without it being serviced first. It’s just not practical to venture outdoors today, except maybe to take picture from the porch, lol! Luckily, we will be above freezing by Friday and hopefully all this mess will be a distant memory, save for the recovery of our economy.

I’m also praying for my friend and former employer, BJ, who is in the hospital.

At least we don’t have Michigan snow, like my friend T!
