One-Liner Wednesday No Regrets

Taken from my informative daily newsletter 1440 Daily Digest:

It’s better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret!-Jackie Joyner-Kersee

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!

One-Liner Wednesday-Mocha?

It’s time for Linda G Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday

I told my hairdresser “marrones” not maroon!! 🤣

I know you probably can’t tell in the photo, but my hair is a violet red color. I had asked the hairdresser to go darker and my thought was mocha, as in chocolate brown. Marrones is Spanish for brown, but to her mocha is evidently dark red-which she translated to violet-red. Anyway, that was Monday and she offered to “fix” it for me, but I loved the color so much I told her not to worry about it. It will, however, take a few washings to get the red scalp to go away!

It is cold, rainy, wet, and getting colder by the minute. What a good day to stay in and work on office stuff. I’ve been toying with the idea of trying to sell my other website…

But then, I tell myself, when I’m done with my transcription course and I get ready to market myself as a transcriptionist, won’t I still need one? Should I scrap the old and make a brand new website or keep the one I have and rename it yet again? What do yall think I should do?

My other issue that needs attention is that when I got ready to do my next practice tape, my pedal wasn’t working and I need to figure out if its the pedal or my transcription software acting up.

My office needs organizing already, don’t know if I’ll get around to that, I also have a Diamond Art project begging to be worked on. 😉

I have been neglecting my writing and my practice, so I really have my work cut out for me today. Luckily, supper is made so I have no worries there, save possibly adding a salad. Yesterday, I made soup from our leftover turkey, but the rice swelled in it and it looks more like a casserole than soup, lol. Still, it was edible. 😉

Happy Wednesday everyone or Feliz Mercoles!
