I spent a little while cleaning the desk


Morning all, hope you are well. Young Master Duke disapproves of the weather and so do I. We are of the opinion that it should be June.

I usually keep the desk in a case of the Oh crap now whats. However those character defects and assets things are battling in my head. That laziness factor is one of those that I really have to kick in the gonads.

So, last night a friend and I cleaned together. She was at her house, I was at mine. We worked on our own places, and talked. My beloved needed to sleep or something, so we had to cut it short. It was cathartic.

The problem? I now have things put where they live. We are not picture ready, but we are getting there. Woke up in a bit of pain, after a 2 hour nap. So, it’s time to grab some Midol and see if it helps.

Meanwhile, there’s still a blizzard warning. It’s still winter. I want to take Elsa out to the back 40 and hogtie the bitch. Maybe it’s a good thing I am sore. I don’t think I could do a proper hog tie right now.

Take care my friends. Spring is coming. Hugs. -L

I am old.


For 30 years now, I’ve loved 80’s and 90’s country music. I’ve recently taken spotify up on an offer of 3 free months, and holy smokes I’m in heaven. Currently jamming to some Randy Travis. I just heard some Allison Kraus. Life is pretty good on the music front.

Meanwhile, it is still a pain day from heck. These old bones are a flaming like a rocket, and I have shed a few tears today.

Then again, I’m not the only old fart in the house. The Husbeast and I had an arguement the other day about a product that hasn’t been sold in my town in over 20 years. I’d have to drive over 200 miles one way to pick it up.

“But they sold it there when I worked there.”

“Yes Methuselah, and since then things have changed.”

Sighs, I didn’t say the 2nd line, but you know, it was in my head bebopping around somewheres.

Chuckle, have a good one everybody. Huge hugs. -L

The best we can do with what we have.


Morning all, hope you are well. The post I had written for this morning is setting nicely in the trash bin. It was not suitable for the website. The boys are snacking right now. Okay, my Husband is having a snackage. Young Master Duke is waiting impatiently for any crumbs.

Whoops, I just saw my Beloved sneak him a snacky snack.

T’was a pain day from the bowels of the demon world today. I spent a few hours in tears in bed. It’s part of the reason that the post I had written ended up in the bin. Sometimes, the best we can do is all that we can do.

I use a cane and a reacher grabber tool to deal with the world around me. I also use a wheelchair. There’s no secret to this, it’s ‘normal’ now a days. I have a few kits I put on the back of the wheelchair in molle bags in order to survive the world as I know it.

I drink an astronomical amount of tea, some of it is designed to reduce swelling and or aid with other problems. My beloved uses hemp oil to be able to do what he can do.

Today, I tried to adapt the kitchen a little more, and he rejected my solution as unstable and dangerous. Crap. I’m going to have to come up with something else. Which means, I have to tear apart one of the craft shelves I’m currently using.

I need a bookshelf in the kitchen for dishes. I can’t put things in the cupboards anymore. Standing up to reach a mug or a glass is unbelievably evil. Reaching up to do the same task, impossible. So, I’m going to ask a friend over sometime in the next week or so to get the job done. I’m hoping that they and their 6 ft tall son can get the change taken care of. I’ll be emptying both wooden books shelves.

They need to be moved into the kitchen/dining area back to back. One side will be for dishes and pans. The other will be for those things we need on our way out the door. Keys, bags and etc..

Even six months ago, I could have been able to do it without help. However, life is what it is.

Meanwhile, I’m okay. My beloved is. Young Master Duke has had some snackage, and we are safe and warm.

Life is okay. Take care, my friends. -L

A quick rinse


Morning all, hope you are well.

There are days when my body gives me hell, and I can’t handle a full getting dressed let alone a full on shower. Yes, I have the shower chaiir, and I do use it.

However, on the days when even a sponge bath can’t work, I do a quick rinse off in the shower.

Our shower is in a bathtub. Which makes ingress and egress so much fun. However, being a bathtub, I can sit on the edge, lean back and rinse my hair and back.

Oh my goodness this helps so much. My body doens’t have the energy on the worst pain days to wash, rinse and etc… but even a quick rinse helps.

Hugs my friends. Take care. -L

Some days, the oil can isn’t close enough.


Morning all, hope you are well. I am curled up in more afghans than I care to admit. My Beloved is watching some weird movie. Young Master Duke is napping.

In the movie, the Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland and others… there is a character found holding an ax in the woods. It takes quite a bit of work to get this character to talk, let alone put their ax down.

Today, I feel like that character. I’m going back to bed, but thought I would check in quick. Stay safe, dry and warm my friends. Oh, and keep an oil can handy. -L
