I have to say, with the freelance projects picking up in the process, working for my friend in between at his floral shop, and the volunteer work continuing at the BSASPCA...with not working my old job anymore, and even during the pandemic when I was stuck home, it is amazing how quick the weekends will go by. It's like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday , Friday, I blinked, Monday again. It was definitely another busy end of week and weekend. It's amazing how much of a shock to the system it is getting back into a groove. One reason why I kept up with a exercise regime during the quarantine and running at the lake. Had a nice run with the Lumbersexual, before heading back to the ancestral home once again. And he kept up. But for those wondering if there was a slap and tickle of towel in a shower scene afterwards, or after our run we emptied our water bottles all over each other, rubbing and jiarating our manhood on the others thigh, snapping each others jock straps.... pawing and kissing all over each other... ripping our shorts off.... ....alas...no. Where was I??? Oh! The good news is on Tuesday I go to the mother's rehab for my second jab of the vaccine. Then wait out the fourteen days. A reunion with the Lad is already on the books!!!! That should knock the wind out of my sex sails! Who knows, I may even return after that work out!! I noticed this weekend that everywhere I was, everyone was still staying masked in and outside. The Mistress had a lovely private tour of a mansion in Hershey and dinner with the Capital Street duo, outdoors at a new hip place, and seemed the majority were still wearing masks, even while walking down the streets. Felt good to enjoy a meal out. Most places are voluntary keeping mask guidelines. But people wearing them outdoors had me in shock. I still am, but I think it just habit for me. Funny, it seemed like it took well over a year to get people to wearing them... now that we don't, seems no one is taking them off. I found it rather surprising. But then no one ever said humans were the brightest. I just enjoyed the spring.

Lily of the Valley...one of my favorite flowers of spring. The scent is sweet and intoxicating in the home. Yes, they do indeed have a scent. Once back home this week, I was over joyed to see the flower bed was in bloom with hundreds of them. When I left, they were still just the green leaves. When I moved in back in 2001, I got a few bulbs to plant, and now in my bed alone there are well over 200 of them...they spread like wildfire, and a few neighbors have even dug some up and started there own bed which have flourished. The condo association is all for gardening and planting here which is nice.

This week a good friend and sister from London, who I admit, didn't know whether to feature in the Grande Dame or From the Candy Shop posts?!? Ella VaDay who hails from the UK is a drag queen, but first and foremost a professional actor and musical theatre performer, and has appeared in London productions as Wicked, Fame, Cats, and the Book of Mormon, and was set to appear in Hairspray. And Ella was a god send for me during the pandemic with her shows on line and our messaging. A real sweet heart. Ella never got into drag till RuPauls Drag Race started airing, but then became a part of a west end drag charity night called. A Mad Drag Night, which raises money for the amazing Mad Trust. Fast forward to 2019 when his run in The Book of Mormon was ending and decided to use drag with his skill set, to earn some extra money, and never looked back. With his accent, he would always say "it been a ell of a day"...and Ella VaDay was born. Ella calls his drag style as colorful, curvaceous and silly, and not to be taken seriously, and likes to keep it as fun and garish as possible. And like everybody else, the pandemic derailed many plans...like his run in Hairspray. But with his dog, his boyfriend Marco and his fans on Instagram, he got through like most of us and even got his cover of Tainted Love on Spotify. But his week Ella dm'd.... Ill be seeing him on Drag Race UK Season 3!!!! One friend down, one more to go!
