Some Sunday

Starting Sunday - October 20, 2019

I woke up. My eyes felt very dry. Went back to bed.

I woke up at ? 8-9 am
Scales lost 100 grams or so.
Sewed a bra and bedsheet (the cloth is finished but no money to buy a new one. It is the only one I have).

The bus-kid washed the dishes and made tea.

Washed my hair.

Baked pancakes for the children, each two with banana and two with applesauce (it is a leftover).
I ate two small boiled eggs.

Washing machine on.

Been on till 12:30 pm was hard to load.

Tried a new site (socializing), registered. A kind of mix between fb and the old Dutch Hyves. I don't know if it works out. There was another one and I could hardly log in so gave up on it. I am not such a chatter and sharing pictures with "goodmorning". I will see where it ends. You can earn points (same as @Partiko). No idea how to find other posts. Will figure it out one day.

The connection is slooooow.
I cannot load a site, steemreply, esteem. Via partiko I can only reply on comments.

Two entries for the Saturday contest. I cannot read them or upvote.

steemitboard for a witness is posdible. Received a personal answer. πŸ‘

I received an automatic answer from @skramatters.

Cannot read his latest post. Sounds like you do not longer need to type your message yourself. Hooe this will not be seen as spam.

I received 20 CAT very generous from @saboin. Only saw a cuddle kitten twice.
I dreamed I had a kitten again. I think the hairy one out of my post.

This message I received from @curangel

Great work! Your post was selected for curation by one of @curangel's dedicated curators for its contribution to quality!

...unfortunately, it had to be excluded from curation because you recently bought a vote from a bid bot (tipu).In our efforts to support #newsteem, authors who participate in vote buying are not eligible for our votes.

But don't worry. It only takes 7 days of not buying votes to be able to receive our vote again, so maybe one of your next posts will make it!

Take care and steem on!

I only once bought a tip (not for my account) to try out how it works. The tip.I bought for another account is seen asa bid-bot. This means I do not fit in the newsteem ideas and the tipu-curators bring users in danger too because @tipu is a bid-bot. No matter what services it is and stays a bid-bot.

This also means that I cannot reward good content with @tipu if my VP is low?

1:58 pm
There is a #cc tag standing for? Doing what? (Stands for commenting, if you comment you receive 1 coin. With 10 coins you can use the tag #cc in your post. Those who comment on this post receive a coin too. See @alucian.

2:15 pm
Tea time, some chocolate with peanuts.

Dpoll -done.

Resteemed Tip 27.

5:36 pm
Youngest takes the laundry inside I will fold it.

Joined @tobetada's Love the clouds contest.
I wonder if there are less contests hosted on Sundays. Resteemed + upvoted.

6:30 pm
According to @pharesim I bought a bid and not a tip via @tipu.
Again no answer how to buy a tip! πŸ€”

I left so many questions to many users but only one person answered and said he has no idea. Sorry but it beats me that none of the users can explain me how to send a tip.
How come they all do as if it is a big secret? Is is really that hard to type down the steps you have to take? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Next comment @pharesim is I am spreading false info.

My answer:

Isn't that what a diary is about? My personal thoughts? My questions? How come you don't tell me how a tip works? No one is willing too? If you read all my diaries you might figure out there are things/questions I continue. Who knows you will be mentioned in todays diary as the one who 1. Read my diary (let's be honest no one does and this is my life #forthechildren) and 2. Are the only willing to explain how to send a tip.

The only thing you said sofar is:

  1. I did a bid
  2. I did not send a tip.
  3. A tip is not seen as a bid
  4. A tipu-curator upvote is not seen as a bid.

Again I ask you: How do I sent a tip? What is the difference? Since I thought I sent a tip and that was @tipu's respond too days ago. It daid you received a tip.
Again, I wrote all the steps, my test etc in my diaries.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. πŸ’•

@pharesim's answer:

I don't know, I don't use that service. I assume when they say tip sent that the tip was sent. Of course they take a fee for that, they want to earn something.

If you want to send someone a tip, the easiest way is to go to your wallet and transfer it directly to the user. No middle men needed, that's the beauty of the blockchain...

Thank you @pharesim for your answer sofar. I think tipping directly to the wallet is a better way (+ memo) and the whole amount will be received. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’•

Since my connection is slow I will make a list of those who wrote, what I consider as, good content and see if I can reward this way ince a week or month if my connectionn is great. I will think this over.πŸ‘πŸ»(Yes, my life is filled with lists).

Drank 1.5 ltr water at once and one peppermint tea. The more water I drink the more disgusting it is. Another brand?

Last post I read: entry ccc contest for tomorrow.

Off to bed. Wrote some lines for the follow-up of Doordraven.

11:38 pm
Wake up...very dry mouth can not swallow. My tongue is stuck to my palate. What is wrong with me?
Second time out of bed to the bathroom.
Alarm clock goes forgot to set it at 4 am.
Eyes and mouth so dry. I drink water it does no help. No saliva, no tear fluid.

If I wake up tomorrow my eyes will be infected and swollen again?

The CAT will attract the kittens more and more the longer you have it. If I remember correctly, it takes one month for all your CAT to turn into CATnip.

You can type ?catbalance in a comment anywhere and @catnet will tell you your CAT balance and how much of it is CATnip. You’ll see that he will answer me below this comment because I typed it.

Oh, thank you so much for this info. I saw Steemeow yesterday. 😍. Also thanks again for the CATtip. Does this work for everyone or?

I wish you a great day. πŸ’•

22.10.2019 18:13

The catbalance thing works for everyone.

For tipping you need to first send some CAT to to put them in your tipping wallet.

Then you just type !CATtip 25 or any number of CAT you want to send, and the tokens will be sent to the person you’re replying to.

22.10.2019 20:10

Thank you so much for explaining @saboin I will spread the word and figure out how to send the CAT to I wish you a great day. πŸ’•Posted with

I wish I could call it "relax"... I stay, or should say, I go back in but never sleep a full night.

Happy day thanks for stopping by. Hope you can one day, holidays perhaps? and it is not because you are sick. πŸ’•
