Monday Morning Monica & Magnificent Meanderings!

Last Update: June 20, 2022

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

I woke up much earlier than I expected to today, but I still jumped right into the Wealthy Affiliate Community! Kitty was elsewhere remaining cool, but it wasn't long before Monica called me this morning.

I talked to her for about an hour and a half, and then she ended up showing up over here at the eBay house on her way to work! What a nice surprise.

We visited in person for another fifteen minutes, and then she had to go.

Aside from the beautiful scenery, that is her car heading away. It was 76 degrees Fahrenheit at this time, and we are well on our way to another hot day, it seems.

I took another couple of images before I went back inside.

Then it was time to work on my latest post on the book promotion website as part of my Wealthy Affiliate research today.

It was fulfilling getting back into some of my writing again.

Monica has also called me on her first break too, and we chatted some more. The day seems to be moving smoothly along. I had just finished taking a short nap when she called and discovered Kitty resting on the floor in the bedroom.

I just never know where she will turn up. Also, she is shedding her winter fur still, and I have to constantly vacuum up clumps of hair.

I also fed the Blog Dogs their main meal of the day too.

In addition, I now have two locksmith jobs to tend to, so it seems like my afternoon just got busy.

I went over and unlocked the house first which was three blocks away, I then called the key--who is someone I have done work with him in the past, and he now knows I have the key since I left him a message. I'm waiting for him to call me back so he can pay me and get the key.

The next one was a job from one of my usual property managers. I rode the motorcycle over for that one since it was near the locksmith shop house.

I took off 3 lock cylinders and took them over to the shop house to get a broken key out of one and re keyed all three lock cylinders to match the original key. I also cut two more new keys to boot, because I knew they would want some new extras.

While I was there, Monica called me on her lunch break too! That was quite nice too.

This was before I left the shop house to go back and reinstall the locks. After that I dropped the two new keys and the bill off to an associate at the office that I know very well.

It has been a 90 Plus degrees Fahrenheit day which, according to the weather said that it felt like 102 degrees. I can certainly attest to that! Ah well, Summer "officially" arrives tomorrow, but I feel like it has been here for a couple of months already!

I did lose an unlock job because there was no way for me to break off the other job I was at in time, but I did refer them to someone who could get to them quickly, and I knew what that grocery store parking lot would be like--a nightmare at the time of the day that I received the call! Besides, I was still smack dab in the middle of the property manager job all the way at the other end of town.

You win some and you lose some. Sometimes these things happen. It has not been the first time, nor will it be the last.

I'm going to cool off under the shade of my "bonsai" tree and drink a beer when I call the guy to some get his key. I took the above image to leave you all with as we are now past 5:00 pm.

When I went back inside, the Blog Dogs had their leashes and harnesses in their mouths. It's hard to tell in the image, but I might have to call Samantha to come over and walk them with me!


I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAS HAD ANOTHER EXCELLENT START TO THE NEW WORK WEEK! I KNOW THAT I DEFINITELY HAVE!

Sorry for not leaving you a comment yesterday but it has been a little too hot since yesterday and again today only more hot today than yesterday. But trying to keep cool as I am typing this. 😅

Sounds like you had a lot done as usual.

I hope you and your furry ones get to relax in the cool air tonight, Jeff.

No worries, Myra! You are so reliable, I knew it had to be because of the unbearable heat, my friend!

The quick paying jobs were nice enough, but um, WHAT warm weather?😲🥵

So far so good on the car lending, but she never usually tells me anything about that.

I hope your hump day goes well too!

Hey Jeff - how's the motorcycle on gas? I don't know if it's any better ( and cooler) to drive when it's really hot and in the 90s. 🔥 🌞

Glad that your wife's been calling you more consistently. Perhaps when she's not looking, you can sneak in a daily reminder on her phone that says "Call Jeff" so she'll call without skipping a day.

Hope you the crew are doing well on Hump Day Eve 😎🐶🐱🐶

Isaiah 😊

Much better to ride, but I cannot use it on some jobs, Isaiah! It gets roughly 100 miles to a 1.75 gallon tank, and the breeze provides an illusion of cooler temps anyway.

I'll ride it as often as I can as fuel prices soar. I've texted her a couple of times that way.

The crew and I are weathering the heat, my friend! 🐶😹🐶😎

That's so cute! Your dogs had their leashes and harnesses in their mouths! That's such a dog thing!

I hope they got their walk after that cute dog behavior! I hope it cooled down enough so you all don't get heat stroke while walking!

Have a great tomorrow! I just realized it's already 11:15. I have been working on a post all evening. I'm almost done but will finish tomorrow. It's time for a break!

It was until, I came back in to find out that Shadow destroyed his sister's harness and leash! 😳🙄

They won't walk now until Samantha picks out some gear for the little one.

Tomrrow is here, and already I have an eBay sale packaged and out on the box for the postman to deliver, so not too bad!

No, not bad at all! Sorry about the destruction of the harness and leash. Why do you think he did that?

He somehow was able to get to everything, and that's what he does, unfortunately, Barbara!

We'll get it rectified soon enough. Have a pleasant evening. We are battling damages from a monster thunderstorm tonight!😫

Wow! You have such varied weather! I hope the storm doesn't cause any damage!

It dropped a couple of large tree branches and tore off more shingles, Barbara, but nothing that I can't handle eventually!

Good morning Jeff,

Thank you for your blog post. It's good to hear that things are going well!

I'm pleased that you have been spending some time with Monica and it appears that work is coming in! Great stuff!

Take care on that motorbike, I'm sure it's a great way to get around quickly and efficiently.

What a contrast on your summer pictures to your pictures only a few months ago the winter snow! It's nice to see the grass looking nice and green! Something that I like about the UK is England's green and pleasant land!

I'm glad that you are a routine, Jeff and things are coming together, fantastic!

Keep up the good work and have a great day.

Good day, Roy!

I am much happier when things are going well. I will always take the win any day of the week when so many things appear not to be going as planned due to circumstances beyond our control!

It is much cooler to ride on a hot day and get the breeze, and it is very economical on fuel which is also very important.

I like seeing the greenery, but abhor all of the yard work which I am currently behind on.

Things seem to be getting better, but at the same time, I know that there are still a lot of things I need to get done. One day at a time!

Have a GREAT day!

Good morning Jeff,

I understand, Jeff, I know where you're coming from! I would like to say that I don't take too much notice of feelings, but there are occasions when they take over! It's always good when things run smoothly!

I can imagine a motorbike must be fantastic on a hot summer's day! I appreciate that you also have economy from a motorbike. Diesel is £9 a gallon here in the UK, that's about $11 at the current exchange rate! Madness, but all planned, I blame your President for not using your own oil! And our Prime Minister for participating in the Ukraine, all part of the globalist agenda!

I understand, sometimes we have to work in places that may not be quite so pleasant! That makes us appreciate the greenery even more!

That's good Jeff, that things are getting better! I think many of us have lots of things we need to get done, as you mention, one day at a time.

Have a great day.

It is so much better when things run smoothly, the such part is that they seldom do these days, and that merely puts me in survival mode!

The madness of the fuel crisis is all planned by uneducated people who are climate control crazy, but also do not realize that a lot of the green sources of energy are made possible by--you guessed it--fossil fuels! They cannot exist without each other, but if done right, they can all coexist in harmony!

I appreciate the greenery, just not all of the additional outdoor work that it requires.

One day at a time is the only thing which works for me right now. It allows me to better compartmentalize everything that has to be done with very little time, resources, or money!

You have a GREAT day too, my friend!

Good morning Jeff,

Thank you for your reply, it's appreciated. I hope you're doing well and enjoying the weekend.

Yes, I hear you massive time, it is so much better when things run smoothly! I don't think we should really just be in surviving mode, we should be in thriving mode! However, this is sometimes easier said than done!

Do you know Jeff, a large retailer wanted to knock down an old building and build a new building. However, a top member of government didn't want it to go ahead due to the carbon emissions that the machinery would make taking the building down!!! Unbelievable!!!

On another note, I'm all for preserving old buildings as I think it's part of our heritage. Providing they are built properly in the first place.

It's good to live one day at a time, Jeff. The great thing is that I believe that we are all sitting on a potential goldmine. If we can follow the training and take action, things can happen! However, I do appreciate that this is easier said than done with all the other commitments we have! But I certainly want to look on the positive side.

Have a great Sunday.

You're very welcome, Roy.

I'll be satisfied with survival mode until thriving mode arrives, but when the government is decreasing our money and increasing debt at every turn, what else can we do? That's why I worry about each new day, and nothing beyond that.

Old building preservation is why I bought that old warehouse! I could not foresee the massive downturn in the 2020s. all starting with the hysteria! Big Governments sure duped a lot of us.

I agree about following the training, but again, for me, Affiliate Marketing is not a good fit. I will still try and push my books and other inventory that I have, but this certainly takes time and effort and as you say, my work load is picking up again, but then so is my physical load which is not monetary generation, but monetary preservation. If I don't get things done on certain properties, the city will simply dropped what they charge to rectify things, and that will cause me to eventually lose properties. I guess that does not matter though, since they ALL belong to Almighty God anyway.

I am having a very relaxing Sunday so far, Roy, and I hope you are too, my friend!

Good morning Jeff,

That's always good to be satisfied exactly where we are! I hear you, Jeff, it's unbelievable what our governments are doing with the financial system! I believe that if every debt was repaid right now in the US and the UK, we would still be in debt massively! It doesn't make sense, but it does make sense with how our governments behave!

I think we have to come to a position where we know that there is nothing we can do. However, we know that there is a God who can turn things around! I never thought that the abortion laws would be turned around, that's making liberals very tearful! On that basis, could Trump be reinstated? All things are possible for those who believe!

Although Wealthy Affiliate is generally about affiliate marketing, I really believe that it can help with many other forms of marketing. Although your main business is not affiliate marketing, I believe that you can leverage Wealthy Affiliate to help you with your various projects.

Maybe some of your books can link to an affiliate link? All I know is that the Internet is a businessman's best friend, we need to leverage it to the best of our ability.

I hope your Sunday went well and I hope you have a great week.

Good day, Roy!

Praise God, I woke up again today, and that makes this a very good day, indeed, no matter what else happens. That still remains to be seen!

There is nothing that we can do about any of this going on except to pray to Almighty God and trust in Him that His will Shall be done!

Trump should be reinstated, because anyone with half a brain can look at the evidence and see that there was misconduct throughout!

I came to WA primarily for the hosting and site support, and everything else here is truly a massive additional benefit!

In my website I am working on has my books linked to their Amazon Kindle listings where I get 35% royalties for the lower priced books and 70% royalties for anything over $1.99. No Amazon affiliate links are required because then that would be around 1%.

Sunday was awesome, as I hope that yours was too, my friend!

Good morning Jeff,

What a fantastic mindset to have, Jeff, I believe this is exactly how we should be! That's a great start to the day in itself!

That's all we can do Jeff, just pray and have faith in God!

It almost seems like we are living in the days of Noah when no one believed in what he was doing! The media seems to hate anything that's good, like my good friend, Trump! To me it seems so obvious what happened, however, in the last days, we will see deception!

I must admit I had forgotten Jeff, I remember you telling me that you had come primarily for hosting and site the support! That's fine, everything else can be a bonus!

The book thing really interests me, Jeff, I don't have time to pursue this at the moment. However, it's something that I would like to pursue in the future. I believe you and Mel have quite a bit of knowledge between you about the subject.

Have a great day.

Roy

You are absolutely right, Roy! We must always pray and trust in God first and foremost!

We are definitely seeing and experiencing the deception in these last days, my friend!

I think that Mel has a lot more knowledge than I do in the book arena! I think I have been writing for onger than he has, but he has surpassed me in that arena too! He is a GREAT friend to have on your side!

You have a wonderful day too, my friend!

Good morning Jeff,

I hope you're doing well and that you had a great birthday.

As they say; faith changes everything!

One of the many great things about the Wealthy Affiliate platform is that we can meet all different types of people with knowledge on various subjects! And when two people come together, for example, like yourself and Mel, it can be powerful! I think it's great to collaborate with other members.

Wishing you a great day.
