Mid Week And All Is Quiet....Well Maybe

 Just a tiny bit of a rant here. 

We have those in the family that are very anti-mask, anti social distancing, pretty much anti everything that both the federal and provincial governments do to try and combat this virus.

Now, yes, people are entitled to their own opinions but I do draw the line when these same people start calling me low IQ, brainwashed, communist (do they even know what communism is I sometimes wonder), call me a rat, say MSN is untruthful (until MSN says something they agree with....wonder if they understand the word hypocrisy) or post picture of people glued to their smart phones (this from one person who does in fact seem to be glued to their smart phone) and of course pushing medical knowledge from people who are not doctors or nurses or any kind of front line worker. 

I really want to slap them upside the head and tell them to grow up. Yet I keep my cool, post upbeat things on Facebook and try to ignore the ignorance of some people. After all family is more important than some of the families ignorance. The person who posts the most upsetting and illogical items actually believes we are going to be invaded by aliens from outer space sometime in the next year. Sighs...... to think she is family.

By the way I do not have a low IQ. I graduated from university with a degree in Science. A double major to be exact in Biochemistry and Microbiology with minors in English Lit and Chemistry. 

We did get some snow last night, and it has been snowing for most of today. I think we will have a white Christmas after all. Temperature wise it is supposed to be fairly chilly.

Kris will be home tomorrow. He is going to leave at first light, I was glad he made that decision because driving at night on our winter roads is not always a great idea.

Still working on the hand quilting. This is not going to be finished any time soon. Still I am liking how it is turning out. The next finished quilt sandwich is going to be machine quilted though.

Off to get supper on the table. I will visit you all a bit later.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Oh, I so agree with you Jackie. I sometimes wonder if people really believe the conspiracy theories or if they just hate our federal government so much that they are blinded by it.

    Wow, I'm impressed with your degrees. Science was never my best subject so I stuck to math.

    I suspect Kris will be on his way or on the road shortly. Wishing him safe travels. Have a wonderful visit!

  2. There will always be dome people who think they have a degree in 'Hindsight' and are so clever... Not!
    Ignore them as best you can.. and have faith that it is all safe in the hand of God.. Happy and Blessed Christmas Jackie

  3. Hello, Just popped in to visit. I agree about the mask rant. I just don't get it. I almost asked a relative of mine if she would mind wearing one while sitting at the table with me. I, of course had mine on. I haven't posted lately.

  4. It is a bit worrying when people have such fixed ideas that we know are quite impossible. Never mind Jackie, just concentrate on your lovely sewing!

  5. We have the same in our family. They are on Hubs side. No one is educated except him. They will believe anything they read on the internet. Both Hubs and I and our girls are well educated. It is so sad. Now the new thing is they will not take the vaccine because there is a micro chip in it.... You can't fix stupid. Have a Merry Christmas my friend.

  6. Whilst not wanting to denigrate people's right to hold their own beliefs, I too feel much the same about the ignorant idiots who don't believe in the danger of the virus,(like the people in our street who had a party until 5am on Xmas Eve). Morons. God help them, is all I can say. Stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas with your family.

  7. I think this virus has really pointed out how stupid and self-centered people are about refusing to wear a mask. In our case it is our friends. They will wear a mask but think anything Trump does is wonderful and they can’t accept that some of his decisions have really hurt this country. It has changed our relationship going forward. We definitely don’t discuss politics anymore.
