It’s 100 degrees Fahrenheit Already Can Someone Turn on the A/C?

What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance. ~Jane Austen

I am a little off kilter these days, and just a touch behind. I hate days like this, the work–life balance long since out the window. My car’s been a bit of a diva this year, turning on the check engine light, but when I go to have it checked it decides to switch the warning off again. I’ve fixed things quite a bit more this year which is costly as it’s a Volvo. I have a newer Jeep, but I love my Volvo because my dad gave it to me 15 years ago and as so many of you know, he died a couple of years ago. It would break my heart to get rid of something my father gave to me because he worried about my safety. Sitting here griping and glowering it occurred to me I may not be acting right and perhaps a great deal of what’s wrong lately is I need to fix my karma because to experience good and valuable things in this world I must first cultivate good and valuable things within myself and all this moody self-centeredness isn’t overly conducive to a life enjoyed. What you encounter in life depends on the way you “are.” And frankly, I “are” a mess lately.

To move forward I decided to think about the things that have made me fall a little astray, little Cao-ism’s for the Road to a Life Gone Good, if you will. My first step? Get back to being the helpful and happy person I used to be. And the best part about being a genuinely friendly and helpful person over being an argumentative one? Loving, caring creative and generous people encounter many other loving, caring, creative and generous people. And when you make that first step to let go, you’re the one who starts the ball rolling, you can choose the direction you want to go. Live your highest values, consistently and without compromise, and by your very example you’ll spread those good values far and wide. I call it surrounding yourself with brilliance, and having the friends I have, both here and in my real life, I know it works. You guys are incredible!

Take from? Yep, it’s been a while, but the time seems right. Don’t waste your time complaining about someone else’s questionable behavior, even if the one in question is a car. But for human behavior, it’s their world too and they own their own karma. Make the choice to overwhelm their negative behavior with your own sincerely positive behavior. Because what we sow, we reap. What we seek to do, well it comes back to us. Our dignity is measured not by our past, but by our present activities. So me? I am going to do good, and feel good and sit on back and receive the abundance of good. I am going to get “good old dependable George (the car) a check-up, a bath and oil change. Well something like that anyway. It’s always spiritually healthy to have positive habits towards loved ones anyway. And in my love for you, oh and you and you too, (my 3 followers), I’ve included a new page at the top with dates and SLURL’s for those fun events we always like to redirect our Lindens to. I hope you will like!  Link: https://anchailinalainn.com/events/

I ran outta words but still have one more picture from my mini Staycation! Last but not least, here’s the last swimsuit, from Baiastice, it’s a thong. I won’t tell you what we call these in Florida. 😉 I really enjoyed Summerfest 2015 and hope you will too! Here’s a TP for you! Taxi!

      1. My current ar.. the Silver Bullet… is a little Puma… far more practical, wonderfully reliable… but she doesn’t make me grin wildly every time I sit in her …

    1. Our washing machine, which was supposed to be a really good one, has been a rogue trader for the last year but this week it finally got its marching orders. Despite my carers pleading with me to get rid of it I was convinced that with a little bit more adjustment it would be OK. So we ended up putting in a new 13amp fuse for every wash because somewhere the motor was overheating and no amount of care would solve that one without an engineer. Talk about me being awkward! *laughs* Anyway, having heard Dorothy blowing her stack for the umpteenth time, I got onto Curry’s website and found a Zanussi machine in the sale – which they delivered and plumbed in this morning – yay! Peace at last heheh!

    1. I bet that is both a blessing and a curse. When I call my mom and she’s not home, the answering machine is still my dad talking, it’s almost surreal. Sometimes it comforts me, sometimes it really saddens me. Huge hug Kat, thank you!

  1. *props her to an upright position, places a frosty mug of freshly squeezed lemonade in her hand and a chocolate bar in the other, hugs her, and kisses her on the forehead* “There now that’s better”

  2. Oh Cao, I hear you about the hot temperatures! It’s ben 115F in my corner of the world; can someone please send ALL OF THE ICE?

    Love your words and wisdoms, sweet lady! You’re like my SL guru, always full of positivity and light! Although now we’re in a fight because your Events page is fixin’ to drain me of every last L$ I have to my name. Grrrrrr! ❤

  3. you call them the same thing we do lil moo and I ain’t sayyin either. Very good words to live by Dollface, I try to live by each and every one….well most of the time. You know my check engine light has been ob since I lived down there. Wanna know why? gonna tell you anyways, it is because I changed out the gas cap for an anti theft one and the seal is not as good as the factory one……………that’s it, not broken, and not fixin either. Love you Enjoy some rays for me this upcoming weekend and remember, I ❤ U

    1. hehe that’s exactly what the mechanic said it might be, but I have to wait until the light comes back on for him to check it. In my case, it just old, not anti-anything. 😀 ❤ you!

  4. Lots of dialogue online these days about SL and friendships – all I can say is be the positive and helpful person you are – and run from toxic and negative people:). We can’t heal the world but a little kindness and love goes a long way! Hugs

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
