Decisions, Decisions

We make them all the time.  Sometimes, they end up making things better for you.  Sometimes, they make things worse for you.  Sometimes, you just want to tear your hair out in frustruation because no matter what you decide, nothing seems to work out the way you want it to.

I have had this happen to me in lots of ways.  In the creation of Vice, my hero(?) in Golden Knave, I made decisions about him that ended with me hitting the brick wall of writer’s block not just once, but several times!  Recently, it was decision to sell some of my work on Etsy – again.  The first time I tried, it didn’t work out and ended in frustruation. This time, years later, the same thing happened.  So, I’m done with that avenue.  I am donating my work from now on, and I’ll make things for people if they ask.  Otherwise, I just want to beat my head against the wall in frustruation.

I’ve made some good decisions too.  My finances are improving thanks to some recent decisions and now, I don’t feel a desperate need to get promoted at a workplace I don’t really enjoy any longer.  I can survive decently on what I’m making right now as a lowly salary worker while I wait for my writing to get published.

All in all, decisions are made almost every second of our lives, and for the good or the bad, we have to deal with the consequences of those decisions.

Right this second, I’m deciding to end this post and go to be because I have to work tonight, and I can’t go in tired because it’s Friday night – one of the busiest nights of my schedule.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdrivers!!!

What’s Happening Now

In my little world, not much is happening.  Across the street from the motel where I live, the Kentucky Fried Chicken has been renovated and is almost ready to reopen.  Graduation at the local high school happened last week, and I was on duty that night at work – it was a major night for the business.

Other than that? Not much.  I did close my Etsy store because I was unhappy with the service I wasn’t getting from Etsy itself on some things that were going on with the store. I know it’s not a big deal, but I thought I’d mention that.  I’m shoppping around for other places to park my shop.

I took a test at work that’s supposed to help me get promoted, but I’m not holding my breath until that happens – I’d die first.  Still, I’ve taken the test which I’m sure I passed – just need to wait for the boss to get back to me on it.

My son, Joe, is engaged to his lovely girlfriend, Macy, and they’re getting married some time next year.  No time has been decided upon just yet.  It’s going to be a Handfasting Ceremony 🙂

The annoying bird outside my door that has been voicing the same annoying sound since close to the end of winter is now making a softer sound and being answered by high pitched trills I can only imagine are babies.  The bird and its mate made a nest in one of the light fixtures close to my front door so I’ve had to listen to this bird for months now.  I never got mad at it because I figured it had a reason for the sound, and I was right.

That’s it for my random post.  What’s happening in your little world?  This inquiring mind would like to know – seriously.

See you all on the flipside and don’t forget your towels and sonic screwdrivers. A shotgun with salt filled shells wouldn’t hurt either come to think of it. 🙂

Hi There!

No, I didn’t forget to check myself and ended up wrecking myself. Nor did I fall off the edge of the world like some clueless Flat Earthers believe.

What happened is, since I was last here, I’ve been busy working two jobs – my job at the fast food joint and my job with my Etsy shop.  I’ve had a couple of big projects for the Etsy shop which have been completed so I have more free time – Free Time? What is this Free Time you speak of? 😀

I am now working on my time management skills so I get do what I need to do and still have time to do it all.  I tend to keep my days full because I suffer from ADD and from Depression.  If I don’t stay busy, first I get bored and fidgety, then I get depressed – it’s not a pretty sight I assure you.

Still, I’m getting back into the swing of things – even found some time to do some writing – besides blogging that is.

I’ll most likely be blogging right after I get home from work, like I’m doing now.  Please, be gentle with me since I’m not known for making sense when I’m worn out.  Still, I will do my best. 🙂

See you all on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

Newest Etsy Addition

Below is my newest addition to my Etsy shop.  It’s a stroller blanket. 🙂  I am working on a second large project even after I told myself I wouldn’t do another after finishing the peacock.  Still, the new project is proving to be fun to make so I’ll continue with it.

Please, visit my shop and tell your friends about it too.  I do take some commissions so it doesn’t hurt to ask, either here or at the shop.  I’m using the money to save up for a car so I can move out of the motel I’m currently living in and get into a place more secure.  I also can’t have my furbaby Oliver with me, and I miss her a lot!

The shop’s name is Griffin’s Market.  Yes, I realize it’s not a terribly creative name, but I wasn’t looking for creative when I started the shop.  My wares are my creation.

With that I bid you all adieu.  I’ll catch you on the flipside and as always, don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!

Personal Update April 10, 2018

Public: So, what have you been up to lately?

Me: Working and sleeping mostly.  Did have to go see the dentist after two of my implants fell out.  He took out two more and now, I have to wait a month before he’ll put them back in again.

Public: Bummer.

Me: *sigh* That’s life.

Public: Surely you’ve done more than that lately?

Me: I’ve been working on things to put into my Etsy store when I have the time.  I make hats and lapghans for cancer patients and veterans first, then I work on other stuff.  I’m currently working on an edging for an altar cloth.  The pattern is one that Marie Antoinette Hees published around 1915.

Public: That sounds like fun.

Me: I like learning new things and easy isn’t much fun anymore.

Public: Sounds like you have a full life.

Me: Not really, but I do try to keep busy even when not working.

Public: How is your writing going?

Me: Just submitted The Inbetween to Independent Publishers for consideration.  I’ve not done much else since.  I am trying to make money anyway I can to make ends meet, and my writing suffers because of it.  The Etsy store and my job have to come first.

Public: Good luck on the book.

Me: Thanks.  I’m also trying to read The Stone Monkey by Jeffrey Deaver when I have some time to.  Not watching any television or movies right now – not enough time.

Public: What’s the link to your store, we’ll go have a peek at the very least.

Me: I’d appreciate that.  The link is: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GriffinsMarket

Public: Keep up the good fight, and we’ll see you later.

Me: See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver.

Griffin’s Market

Griffin’s Market is the name of my Etsy shop.  I know it’s not too original, but it gets the job done.

I have four items already listed on there – including my just finished peacock project.  I will be listing more items as I get pictures made and get projects done.

I take some commissions as well so don’t hesitate to ask.

The link is : GriffinsMarket

Let me know if the link doesn’t work.

See you all on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!
