Musings and Rambles

Milk chocolate is so mild it’s nearly insipid. No point to it.

This was an interesting podcast on poetry and the gospel.

Gingersnaps and pumpkin cream cheese spread together are fabulous.

I think reincarnation as a concept is just lame, a copout in a story and dreary and horrifying to contemplate in real life (even apart from the religious issue). But some of my favourite K-Dramas keep having that theme.

Do you ever wonder if even half the people who post things about dancing in the rain have ever really danced in the rain?

My son was pretty sick. He tested positive for Covid, and he’s feeling better now. He really did not feel good at all for three or for days. The shut down has been far harder for him.

I still mostly self-quarantine with the Cherub. I see the kids and grandkids from time to time, and my mom, but hardly anybody else. I mostly do curbside pick up, although when I care about produce I wait for weekends and do a quick shopping trip. I do wear a mask. It’s hard and gives me panic attacks sometimes but there it is. I do not care if you do. I wish people would just stop being so angry at who does or doesn’t mask and just do what you think should be done and let others do the same.

I am stocking up for a near seige after the elections. Hope you are, too. Water, toilet paper, canned goods, candles, cleaning supplies, vitamins c, d, and elderberry and echinacea, diapers, wipes….

I have written my older godson about 200 letters. Stocked up on postcards and postcard stamps for writing short notes to other people.
I fretted a bit about all the things I am not doing, but I am coming to terms with that and settling in to my own skin and fitting into what I am supposed to be doing. This no longer includes regular large gatherings in my home but does include a lot of reading and 2-3 hours every day writing to my godson and occasionally others.

Younger godson has asked if he can come for Christmas. I said yes, of course. How do you say no to a child who was born and put in your hands before anybody else held him? 14 years, now. Or in just a few more weeks.

Belated Thanksgiving and 좔석 wishes to Canadian and Korean friends and favorite strangers.

    Green & Black’s 85% for me. I did try Lindt 90% but it was a bit too much.

    Years ago there was a brand of milk chocolate called Peter’s, not very sweet. I don’t know if I would still like it.

    Glad your son is feeling better!

    I love your ramblings. <3

    We're watching Tale of a Gumiho now and it suddenly occurred to me that when you're Korean and want to tell a fairy tale of course it's going to be about all those gods and will include reincarnation. I think it all works perfectly on a metaphorical level. Angelina is really rubbing off on me. πŸ˜€

    On masks: We bought stretchy lace on Amazon and made a lace mask. It abides by the letter and even here in the greater Chicagoland area (with self-appointed mask police everywhere), I’ve never had a single person say anything to me about my mask. You can breathe right through it. My husband, who has to be more circumspect for work (and wear two layers), bought black see-through material and sewed a two-layer mask. He can blow a candle out through it. Just a thought. I’m sure you saw Del Bigtree’s show featuring the OSHA mask experts on how unsafe most people are to wear masks (from a health perspective). If not, it’s worth a watch.
