December fraught with landmines when you're the working poor.

Here's a pizza. Multigrain. Turkey pepperoni. It rocked. My life does not.

December in Florida

ALMOST makes up for the redonkulous summers.  Saw my neighbors for the first time in months as I was taking pictures - just like up north... only backwards. 

They said how glad they were they had a "stable" neighbor.  Forgive them.  They don't know me very well yet.  *Grins*

Pedicures with Mom.  The promise of free ones for park tickets in the future.

Setting limits with the current work situation.  The lack of freedom for me there, leads to a lack of my availability and expansion of my freedoms elsewhere.

Making a future with freedom from financial worries by investing in my education and my home studio, after seeing an opportunity melt away last week.

Two lovely days away from all of the aggravation before a schedule of NINE days in-a-row.  The promise of a future away from it permanently.

A fruit rat on the windowsill.

Raising Women

If you raise girl children to believe they can do anything, they will grow into women who do.

A Thought

It is really hard not to go completely postal (sorry postal persons I know and love) when folks I know aren't anywhere near ignorant willingly support candidates who have no intention of doing anything to help them.

Especially when said candidate is directly responsible (through the company he headed) for my current desperate plight and financial and professional struggle. 

Do what you must.

I will be supportive and sympathetic when it's your turn here. Because it will be. YOU are not a corporation.

For Fall

Of course, Autumn here is just 85 instead of 92 degrees and includes darker mornings and evenings.  Otherwise you have no real idea what time of year it is.  I suspect the tree in the front of the house will switch this year's set of leaves for new ones in the coming months. But instead of a big, dramatic color show - they'll just fade, shrivel and drop and almost simultaneously be replaced by new growth.

Ah, subtropical.  Maybe that explains the color of the first leaf.  Or maybe my glaze experiment was wildly successful.  I prefer the latter.

Earning a Living

That's what Mom calls it.  Clinging to the house, windows, the inside of the door frame (that's how they get IN the house)... where ever there's the possibility of a bug.

I stood, unmoving, in my kitchen to watch one eat on a recent evening.  I could only tell he was successful by the regular swallowing.

That fast.

Internet, phone and cable - which I can't work yet.

But, I feel a bit more like home now. Sigh.
