SATURDAY 10.21.2017

@ 7:59 AM
Good Morning ITT girls & Co.! Projects of the Day = Admin work & a Biz Meeting.

Side Note - Something fun that I've been working on lately, has been going through my Image Collection. Fellow Professional Digital Content Creators, if you aren't already, I highly suggest getting into the habit of building yours organically. For me personally, I always like to keep "my Creative Eyes" open when I am just out & about doing what needs to be done. For example, while I was on my Morning Walk yesterday, the Landscaping Team for the Park I was at had been raking leaves (lol, yes, we have falling leaves in the Desert, smile). They had packed them in Clear Trash Bags & left them on the sidewalk while they went to mow the grass. I thought it actually looked quite picturesque. ;) Sooooooo, when I walked by that spot, I stopped & took a few pictures before they threw them in the garbage to be burned.

I know for a fact that I will one day use those Images for something Fall-ish. It may be 5 years from now, but at least now I have that moment in time secured in my personal Image Collection. If you are cheap, ahem, I mean "cost-effective" like me (lol, I would rather spend the Budget on Business Lunches, smile) this keeps you from having to pay for Stock Images and/or hire Photographers all of the time to supply/fulfill your content needs. Now, notice I said "all of the time". Nothing wrong with utilizing these Services. BTW, I am talking to Small Business Owners who have limited capital. The point of "a Business" is to generate & retain capital, not eat it all up in egotistical, competitive, & unprofitable expenses. Sigh... [tries to stop heavy breathing and foaming at the mouth] I'll fully divulge into this topic eventually. Not today though. Not today Ruthie. LOL! ;)

@ 1:03 PM
Ok, so I'm blasting my new Favorite Album, cruising along enjoying the Sunshine, the Mountainscapes, the Palm Trees, & the wind blowing through my Topknot (lol), just having a groovy day in the Desert when all of a sudden I've had it. "Why are some of these people rushing around like there's no tomorrow?! So aggressive! This is how people get hurt! Puh-lease, it's only, [looks at Clock] Oh... 10 AM... Sorry peeps, in my Small Biz Vampire World (an "About RT" reference, smile) it's like 7 PM-ish. While you were Sleeping tight, I was up working hard."

MONDAY 10.9.2017

@ 12:34 AM
Good Morning ITT girls & Co.! Project of the Day = Admin work. I am so excited to finally be able to start work on re-modeling the Online Boutique! Thank you for all of your patience during this Web Site Make-Over process. Of course, suggestions and whatnot are always welcome, submit them here, thanks! ;)

@ 6:28 AM
Random Fast Fact = most Monday's I don't feel like being bothered on any level (lol, see the 5.8.2017 entry). But, if I haven't gone to the Grocery Store yet, I still need to eat (lol). Sooooooo, if I go out for Dinner on Sunday, I always buy an extra Meal to Take-Out. That way I can still eat well and be a hermit on Monday. Pretty smart eh??? Small / Home-based Business Owners, you can thank me later. ;)

@ 2:47 PM
Spotlight Bible verse = "If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone."
(Romans 12:18, NIV)

Repeat Commentary from the 9.2.2017 entry. ;)


SUNDAY 10.8.2017

@ 10:45 AM
Happy Sunday ITT girls & Co., have a good day at Church Service! ;)

Spotlight Bible verse = "My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD."
(Psalm 26:12, NIV)

@ 1:33 PM
Church Service Personal Styling Tip = I luv a good Blazer! Today I'm wearing a beautiful Basic Black one with Rhinestone detailing that I bought a few Years ago & am just now wearing. Lol, that's something that I do a lot (buy Clothes & then wait at least 1 Year to wear them) & of course (lol) I have very specific reasons why... I shared these reasons a few Years ago, Bonus Points to those who remember what they were. ;) But yeah, a quality Blazer will take your look up a thousand notches. You can instantly look more polished, sleek, and upscale. Of course though, I'm all about comfort (see the 8.20.2017 entry) so make sure that you buy one that fits properly. If there's anything that irritates me beyond belief, it's an ill-fitting Blazer... Check your ego at the door, forget about Size #'s/Letters & buy whatever fits properly. [tries to stop heavy breathing and foaming at the mouth] Just to clarify, I have to do this all of the time. Technically, I wear a "Small" in most styles. But b/c I have, ahem, "a well-endowed bosom" (lol, the struggle is way too real... unfortunately, the posture problems are as well... ugh...) I have to check my ego all of the time when Shopping & usually buy a "Large" or an "Extra Large" to make sure that everything stays under wraps & lookin' classy. Sooooooo, I am speaking from much experience & not "just being nit picky". Oh yeah, hey Guys! All of the above applies to your Styling too (see the 7.23.2017 entry). Um, except the bosom part, ignore that. ;)

Spotlight Bible verse = "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
(Romans 12:21, NIV)

Unfortunately, when God blesses you with beautiful, unexpected Surprises, evil is usually somewhere lurking in the shadows to try and take the edge off... (see the 8.24.2017 entry)

FRIDAY 10.6.2017

@ 12:34 AM
Good Morning ITT girls & Co.! Projects of the Day = Admin work & Running Errands.

Oh hey! (lol) So, I've gotta take some new Promo Photos & whatnot for Work soon (see the 7.19.2017 & 7.28.2017 entries). So, I've been taking old Promo Photos & finally trying out all of those little "Filters" or whatever that's on my Biz Phone... Gasp! This stuff really can restructure your entire Face & Body! =o All with one tap too! =o No Professional Photo Editing Training or anything... Wow, I always wondered why some people invest so much time mocking up their Photos that you'd think it was their Part-Time Job or something. OMGosh, this stuff is addictive too... One question though for all of you Jr. Professional Photo Mocker-upper People, "What happens when you get up to like go to the Bathroom or get a Snack or something and you see yourself in the mirror and instantly remember that you don't really look like whatever you've created in your Phone??? Is that when all of the self-loathing starts to kick in???" Asking for "a Friend". ;)

Taking "an early & extended Lunch Break" (tee hee hee). AKA - time to Fangirl. I've got my Snacks (you guys have got to try these "Chili Garlic" White Tortilla Chips w. Salsa Con Queso, lol), I've got my index finger on the "refresh" button (for me, that's the only downside to not "officially following" pgs on Social Media, see the 9.14.2017 entry), & see y'all next Week! ;) [puts up a "Do Not Disturb" Door Hanger] I really do have one of these BTW. It has my favorite curious Cartoon Monkey on it. Why??? B/c it's funny. =)

FAQ = "Don't listen to the Haters, they are just jealous! I happen to think that you are very funny! You make me smile and help brighten my day! Where do you get your sense of humor from? It's very unique!"

Answer = Yeah, I know, right. ;) Mean Girls/Guys are humorous & intriguing to me though... Most people are just trying to do the best that they can in their life under whatever "circumstances" were dealt to them at birth (and like it or not, we all have something challenging to face). But seriously though, why go out of your way to intentionally try & make someone else feel bad, insecure, substandard, etc. than they already probably feel. Unfortunately, it is envy & greed. The Mean Woman/Man wants all of the happiness, attention, talent, beauty, love, etc. in the World for themselves. It sideswipes them & throws them into an emotional tizzy to see someone else (IRL and/or Online) have something "good". So they "make it their new life mission" to cosplay that person's lifestyle & then when that doesn't work out for them (in 2 seconds I might add, lol) that's when the dirty stuff gets started... Wash. Rinse. Repeat the Cycle. Sigh... We're all in this together, or at least we should be... But yeah, it's alright, it comes with the territory, it's a part of my Job Description, so I'm cool. ;)

In other News though... Thank you!!! Warning = I'm much funnier on Paper/Screen than I am IRL. On Screen/Paper, it's all very premeditated & scripted. IRL, it just comes whenever it comes. ;)
#WriterProblems
#BeYourself

In terms of "where" I get my sense of humor from... Watching Cartoons (from all different decades, eras, & cultures). Seriously, it's true. Brilliant people write most of them. Witty, intelligent, skilled people who have a lot to say Socially & have to do it "in a Family-friendly way" usually within a 15 minute - 2 hour time span (and on a strict budget, lol). Other Influences = just life in general. Laughter truly is a good Medicine (as the popular saying goes). Even if it's "bittersweet" laughter. ;) I very distinctly remember a time period in my life that I could not laugh. I did not laugh. It was very dark and not because of me personally, but b/c of what I was allowing to be imposed upon my Personality, my Spirit, my Mind, Heart, Lifestyle, Dreams, etc. It gets to the point, where you have no other choice but to laugh/find humor in various situations or else you will hurt yourself and/or others in one way or another. =(

@ 3:30 PM
Spotlight Bible verse = "What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures."
(James 4:1-3, NIV)


MONDAY 10.2.2017

@ 2:48 AM
Good Morning ITT girls & Co.! Projects of the Day = Admin work, a Biz Meeting, & Running Errands. ;)

@ 6:03 AM
FAQ = "How are your Eyebrows doing?"

Answer = ... They're doing good, thanks for asking, they say "Hi!" Now, for the people who are totally confused as to what level of madness we are referring to, you'll find your answer(s) by... seeing the 7.20.2017 entry. ;) But yeah, they're coming along. Of course, not as fast as I would like them to. But by the end of the Year, they should be back to their former glory (lol). There are no shortcuts with beauty. Well, actually there are, but, that's how you end up with weird rashes, in debt, and/or eventually in the Hospital... BTW, I feel like I should clarify - thankfully I have never had to experience any of the above regarding my various Beauty Regimen Adventures. People who have, I'm sorry. Please take care of yourself. Read the Instructions & always obey them. Just b/c Dr. Funny $$$$ says that "you should get a procedure done", doesn't mean that you have to. You look great! Slow & steady wins The Race (see the 5.10.2017 entry). Ok. I'll stop. For now... ;)

@ 2:48 PM
Spotlight Bible verse = "The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
(1 Samuel 16:7, NIV)


SUNDAY 10.1.2017

@ 1:33 AM
Oh hey, it's October. Wow... good thing I finally got up out of Fetal Position, crying, and sobbing under a Palm Tree. Nooooooo, I haven't been under a Palm Tree. Ahem, notice what I didn't say that I haven't been doing. Yes, this is "an Inside Joke". [low-key slides eyes off to the side]

Fast Fact though, I do however Sleep in a low-level Fetal Position. I don't know, it's just so comfortable and natural feeling for me. I have tried to Sleep on my back and I just can't do it. I know it's better for your Skin b/c of the whole gravity thing, but yeah, I end up staying awake for hours if I attempt to do that. Sleep never happens. =(

I do know that your "Sleeping Position" says something about your Personality or so the story goes. I don't remember exactly what mine means, I think the gist of it is, 'you put up a big front, but you're actually very sensitive and clingy'. Hum, sounds about right. LOL! So yeah, look it up, I luv this kind of stuff. ;)

Ok. So yeah. I guess I'll come back with something uplifting, empowering, and inspirational in a few. Sigh... [insert smug smirk... be nice Ruthie...] But yeah, I need some time to get out of this Sackcloth and Ashes (Old Testament joke... If you didn't think that it was funny, please feel free to lodge a complaint here). Ta-ta-for-now kiddies! ;)

@ 10:45 AM
Have a good day at Church Service! ;)

Spotlight Bible verse = "Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD."
(Psalm 4:5, NIV)

@ 6:00 PM
Sunday Dinner = enjoyed lots 'o' delish food at a fav locale, good convo, & the sunny day. ;)
