So an old lady walks into a hardware store…

… and she hands the man behind the cutting desk a slip of paper. On the paper are the dimensions for two pieces of plexiglass she needs to buy. The man wanders away and does his thing, eventually returning with her order. Embarrassed, she mumbles that she needed clear plexiglass, not blue.

No, this isn’t a joke, it really happened, and I was the old woman.


The guy behind the counter looked at me as if I had sprouted three more heads on my shoulders. If I had sprouted more heads perhaps one of them would have figured out that the plexiglass was clear, not blue. The blue was because of the plastic coating stuck on the plexiglass.

In my defense, there is such a thing as blue plexiglass. There’s even red, yellow, and green plexiglass, so stick that in your hat, Plexiglass-Cutter-Man.

Double sigh.

My 31-Day Gratitude Challenge

Check out the videos for the 31-Day Gratitude Challenge I held during the month of December.

Day 1 of the 31-Day Gratitude Challenge

As you know, I suffer from depression, and some days it’s difficult to get out of my own way. I figured a gratitude challenge was just the ticket to help me cope.

It worked! Cool.

Each day I found something for which I was grateful and I was able to find pockets of joy. Also, by sharing my journey with my viewers on YouTube I helped others find joy in their lives too.

Double cool

Go ahead and partake in the challenge on your own. Over the next thirty-one days open one of the videos and follow the gratitude prompt. If you participate during the a month with only thirty days, or twenty-eight for February, just double up a day or three.

Have some fun and remember to say thank you to the universe for all your joyful blessings.

Please share my video and the challenge with your family and friends; you’ll earn Karma chips.

Animal Antics

And now for a new segment to my blog: Animal Antics

I have a squirrel who figured out that by climbing the screen house – well, watch and see –

Not ones to be outdone, a couple of my Mallard hens decided to show the squirrel even ducks can perform antics fit for Cirque du Soleil performers.

The remains of my dead oak tree.
Two Mallard hens survey the river from high upon their perch.

So, that’s it. Not much else is going on with the other wildlife in my little corner of the Concord River, unless you count beautiful, gorgeous, brilliantly-colored Eastern bluebirds a truly amazing sight.


Okay, I’m finished. I’ll leave you with a shot of the sun rising over my river.

Double cool.

Blessed be and Happy New Year. :}

Mi manchi, mia amata immortale.

About tinthia

Wondering, searching, and wandering, I'm an earth witch with a desire to get it right in my lifetime. The flow of the river feeds my inner goddess and fuels my soul. Blessed be. :}
