We should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. What better day to celebrate these little things than the best day of the week? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.
Please help us Barack Obama. You’re our only hope.
- Friends make everything better – Seriously. Feeling low? Call up your best friend. Need some support? Go on Twitter and commiserate with your online buddies. This week, I received my very own pussy hat from Elle, @gleefulreader. I was asking about finding someone on Etsy to make one for me, and she made me one as a gift. She lives in Canada! Not only do I get a little kick out of wearing it every morning, but I love knowing that someone cared enough about what is happening in our country and about me to make me a gift. When the news is nothing but a shitstorm, and my in-box is filled with urgent, must-take-immediate-action newsletters from various interest groups, this simple act made my week. I love my friends.
What makes this a Fabulous Friday for you?
Amen! I must say, my blogging/Twitter peeps have been a tremendous comfort these past few months!
I have to say friends, especially those online like yourself and Ti, have been a great source of solace this past month. I appreciate your responses to my posts and trying to keep our spirits up despite the shit show. Thank you (bowing) :).
You are very welcome! I find myself really enjoying visiting everyone’s posts these days because there is comfort in shared misery and I love seeing how everyone is coping. I find it inspiring. I also know how much I appreciate the kind words people post, so I want to do my part for others I care about. I am glad it is working!
I’m so glad you got a hat! That’s a happy thing for this poop weather. This is my last weekend as a family of 3! that’s insane. Family movie or game night planned for tonight which is a fabulous way to kick it off!
Enjoy your weekend! (And yes, this weather is just awful. I don’t mind the cold, but the lack of sun is beginning to wear on me. A lot.)
I love the story behind your pussy hat!! I have a friend who is making them, I should contact her. I hope your weekend is relaxing!!
You absolutely should contact your friend about the hat. Highly empowering which is weird since it just pink yarn and a really simple pattern!
We need a pic with the hat on.
I agree. Friends and online interactions with the people we like help tremendously during these $hitty times. I must say Ulysses is a handy way to work the brain out of the numbness I forced it into just to survive the past two weeks.
I keep meaning to take a picture of the hat, but we have not had regular sun since December. It’s depressing and makes for terrible photos!
I never thought I would say this but I am sort of enjoying the challenge of Ulysses. The story does appear to ramble…a lot but there is something so unapologetic about it that is rather amusing. I hope this continues!
I should get my mother to make me one. I keep thinking about it, but then forget to ask her. lol Instead I bought books and supported authors being treated like garbage by other people and the new president. It was my small part.
The hats are fun and I guess supremely easy to make. I think every action we take is a step in the right direction. I hope.
That’s awesome. I’m glad your friend made the week a little better for you!
Hope you have a great weekend!
Thanks, Brandie! You too!
