I’ve pretty much kept this blog religion and politics free. This is a place to chat about style and thrifting and such fun stuff. This isn’t my soapbox–ok maybe today it is!! You may have gleaned from some of my posts that I go to church regularly. But for all you know I could be attending the Church of the Celestial Turnip. My spirituals beliefs aren’t the topic. I’m also very low-key at work about my religious and political leanings.
“Judge not lest ye are judged” is my motto. I’m fairly neutral on Facebook, too. But wow have I gotten beat up today both at work and on FB!
I had a couple of co-workers berate me and make snotty remarks about the election and it’s outcome. Got called stupid, ignorant and a couple of other nice names. Seriously. One co-worker who I actually would talk politics with and who is the opposite leaning from me was very cordial. We chatted a bit about everything in an adult manner because we’ve long since agreed to disagree and not let it stand in the way of our working relationship or friendship. The couple of big-mouths are ones I NEVER really talk too much with as they are super judgemental and think they know it all. Luckily I generally don’t have to deal with them too often. I just hid in my office today.
Facebook has been a cesspool, though. I’ve spent a good deal of time today un -friending people–most who I’ve known since high school. I got some really horrible messages and some of the postings these folks did were beyond the pale. So…poof you is gone!! The comments and messages were entirely unprovoked by me because the only election related thing I posted was that I was in line to vote at 6:50am and don’t forget to go out and vote.
Anyway–thank heaven’s for the peace and community of all of you bloggers. A wondrous haven from the crazies!! I was so bummed out my hubby brought me a pair of boots!! I’ve been looking for COMFORTABLE flat brown knee-high boots that were under $50 new. I’d have preferred to thrift them but shoes can be hard to find in my size. I’d seen these at Kmart before and while we were there tonite picking up some stuff I saw they were on sale!! And the last pair was in my size-9 wide!! KARMA!! Plus I had a coupon for $10 off so they were only $14.99! They are the Route 66 brand. I’ll be sporting these next week!!

And on a more exciting note, two more days down in the neutrals week challenge. I have to say I liked both of these outfits in theory. I will swap out or add a bright color the next time.
Here’s a close-up of the pendant I wore. I made it using an old photo decoupaged onto an acrylic tag.
I really liked today’s outfit. Next time I’m going to add a bright jacket to punch it up!
I’m off to play channel surfer between Xfactor and The Voice while stuffing a santa & cow. Thanks for letting me vent a bit!
Everyone have a great evening!!
