Greetings to all.
I hope this entry finds you well. I’m doing alright, I can’t believe I’m awake at this ungodly hour but here I am. I did sleep for a bit so maybe that’s why I’m up. I just wish I could get my sleeping schedule back to normal but I cant’ seem to do so. Oy well, since I’m here I might as well write.
So just a quick note here, for those who are using discord and needing to learn things about how to navigate it using a screen reader here’s a link that may help you.
I have been asked by many people about why I keep posting about saving the dolphins in Taiji Japan or why I care about what color the cove is on a daily basis. I have found a link that will answer your questions if interested. If after reading you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me. I love raising awareness for this horrific act that goes on there. I will also say be aware of what you will read, it’s not pretty.
For a bit of amusement I stole this from Facebook and thought, why not? So, here goes…

* Favorite color: In my case it would be colors, purple, red, blue and black.
* Sunrise or Sunset: Definitely sunset though I do like the sunrise as well.
* Ocean or Mountains: The Ocean.
* Dog or Cat: I love all animals.

* Who will play: I don’t know though it’s irrelevant because this isn’t FB but my journal. However if you wanted to leave your answers in a comment, I wouldn’t be opposed to that.
Valentine’s Day was sort of a bust. I felt really bad because pretty much right after dinner I fell asleep. I think Emmy felt a bit cheated because she wanted to hang out and do things like watch movies but instead I went horizontal and that was all I wrote apparently. To be fair I hadn’t slept well that night and hadn’t gotten much rest so I was a bit tired. She said she wasn’t mad at me but I still felt like a heel for doing that to her. Dinner was grate though. We had Lasagna, Caesar salad and garlic Texas toast. We were silly and drank milk out of wine goblets because we didn’t’ have any wine. For dessert which neither one of us ate because we were full, there were sugar cookies decorated for the day and/or lemon bars, some plain and some with chocolate on them. They came out with a new ice cream which I thought would have been perfect for the dessert but I didn’t have any and I couldn’t have gotten it had I wanted too. It is only at Krogers which we do not have here in MN, such a shame in my opinion. It is called strawberry champagne and the description is as follows: a strawberry ice cream base with a glittering champagne ribbon and rosé fizzing candy. Like I said it would have been perfect for the holiday and it sounds really yummy too.
I went to the food co op today. I love going to that place because it has such a feel good vibe to it. I got a few groceries there for my health food pantry which I haven’t yet created but plan to do so soon. I looked at whey protein for my smoothies and they wanted way too much for it, I’m not sure if I can find it cheaper online but I plan to have a look to see if I can find it. I also got two packages of Kind bars which I absolutely love, I haven’t tried these two particular flavors yet though but they sounded really good. I have to be careful of which ones of those I get though because some of them include coconut which I cannot eat, so reading labels is a definite thing. Kashi cereals are my friends as well, they are super good for you from what I understand so I got two flavors to try to see if I like them. I’m sure I will, one is called Strawberry Fields and the other is called Chocolate Cocoa. You just can’t go wrong with strawberries or chocolate.
The Lent season begins Wednesday Feb 17 and I don’t usually take part in that anymore but this year I have decided too. So this year I’m giving up all forms of soda, chips and cookies or anything that can be considered junk food actually. The only exception for me is dark chocolate as that does have some health benefits. Dropping soda is something I have wanted to do for a while now and this will give me the push to do so. I know that some may probably scoff at me but this is what I need to do for myself, my friends can either support me or not but I’m doing this either way. The trick is going to be staying strong enough when the teasing does come and I know it will, I know I can do this. I have the will and I know that I can conquer. I know that I’ll feel much better for doing so in the end.
Alright, I think I’m finished with this entry finally. I’ll write again soon or at least I’ll try.
You all take care of yourselves and each other. I hope that today is filled with love, joy, peace and positivity for all of you. No matter what life throws your way, try to hold your head high and let your beautiful lights shine in a world that needs your brightness, don’t let anyone dim or snuff out your light.
