Operation Oysterhood: 23 November

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

Glinka always insists on driving when we go for our annual vet appointments …

The working day began at five and ended at five, with three visits to the Blue Cross clinic for check-ups in-between. It was a loooooong day. At five in the afternoon, I decided to call it quits and started cooking a stew (my love is coming to dinner later tonight), and ironing and de-stressing in pure domestic goddess mode.

A lot of work got done today and most of it was fulfilling and wonderful, but I also had to end a professional relationship with someone who was simply not doing their job. Luckily, someone else I work with stepped in to take over and I am infinitely grateful. I burst into tears out of sheer relief that something close to my heart is actually going to happen the way it was planned despite terrible obstacles on the way. And I owe it all to people in the industry who are not only super-creative and hard-working, but who have a heart and will assist in one’s hour of desperation and need. This generosity will not be forgotten.

What else?

My onion seed ‘plantation’ is coming along nicely.

I might actually sleep peacefully tonight …

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
