Away from keyboard

Still gone – prewritten post.

Horrible things, such as empty coffee cups happen you know. I’m sitting here working away and all of a sudden the sight of a bottom of my cup startled me. I’m dissappointed, disgruntled, or maybe I’m just grumpy.

Maybe it’s a good day to hit the recliner, relax, and watch the world go by from the pages of a book. Maybe it’s a good day to stitch. Anything to get over the horrors of not having another cup of caffeinated goodness nearby.

Sometimes, I dream of having a coffee bar attached to the house. With a barista, who is on standby to just make sure that my cuupa stays hot and full. That’s not a thing, I know, and I haven’t won a lottery with all the trappings.

However, maybe just maybe my husband has made another pot for me. We will see. Take care my friends. -L


Away from keyboard pre scheduled post

Going to be away from keyboard for awhile my apologies. Pre-written Blog post from the archives.

Lordy, it feels like I slept with a boulder in bed last night. Would someone please send over a chiropractor to run me through the rack? Holy crap. Sighs.

For the most part, all is well here. Have some errands to run today. The store needs money, the gas station needs money. Other places will be added to the list. It just seems that faster than the check hits the account everyone lines up to say Gimme!

I still haven’t gotten out of the habit of needing food and such, so it is what it is. Duke is out back supervising the squirrels again. I’m settled in at the desk so that I don’t disturb the husbeast. He’s been in a mood lately.

I guess it’s okay. I suppose I better run these old bones under the shower, and see about finding what happens after. Take care my friends. -L

A bit of chaos

Palliative care are funny words. Back when I wore scrubs, it was called comfort and care. The patient in this case is my Dad. I guess Palliative Care means something to someone else who is above my pay grade.

The family is gathering. The grandkidlings have been in to see him. At least some of them. Great grand kids, I’m not sure of yet. I’m going today. Today being Wednesday the 17th.

Had a usiing dream this morning. Was wearing scrubs again, and sat out front using when I was supposed to be doing rounds. Instead of getting residents up, I was wasted. My heart is still thumping.

I’m taking a bit of a leave of absense from Social Media. I just said I’m going to be away from keyboard for awhile. I’m also taking a leave from my service position. I talked it through with my sponsor, and it is time to use my get out of jail free card.

I’ve got other things to focus on right now.

So, I will try to put posts up here to keep up my commitment to you. I just don’t know what’s going to happen yet. I have ‘away from keyboard’ messages set in place just in case I can’t make it some day. I’m sorry. -L

Rainy spring morning

Morning all, Duke is outside observing the known universe. I’m just finished with the 2nd cuppa of the morning. It’s a good day so far, and my neck just popped. Sighs… Relief.

Today’s plan is to work on the office again. I’ve got filing cabinets to move. This means that I have to pick up Duke’s blankets, get them washed. The camp bathroom facilities need to be moved, and a table needs to get rearranged.

My sewing tote, which will be going into one of the filing cabinets needs to get shuffled, and I have to make sure that the rugs get out into the rain to be rinsed and dried by the sun. Since this is a garage floor, I better sweep it all down so I can put the rugs back in the next day or two.

Also on the agenda is starting to set up the sewing area. I will turn the shorter filing cabinets into a table, so I can lay out sewing patterns and other things. For the most part, I wish I could climb stairs, because if I could get rid of the wheelchair ramp to the main house, I would have several more feet of room.

I do have hopes of a coffee bar yet. I haven’t done it as I don’t have but 2 outlets. Yes, they are powered enough that I could run a kettle out here. The thing is, I only have 2 outlets. This garage is a glorified wooden tent, to be honest, but a coffee bar would be lovely.

So, I need to get the physical work done. Now, how the heck from the wheelchair can I do this? I have no clue, don’t worry, I do have help. However, the small amounts of time I can physically stand, I can get the work done. Take care my friends. I will update again soonest. -L

P.S. A coffee bar….

Rainy day

Morning all, hope your day is good. Duke and I are in the garage, he’s staring out the garage door because it’s been raining off and on all day. He’s happy to just sit and watch. I’m settling in for the moment.

Haven’t been sleeping well, so I took advantage of the rainy day and just napped off and on most of the day.

Yesterday my husband decided he didn’t like the plans and options we had for an outside shed. He also made a few other decisions that tripped the rage button in me. There’s nothing I can do about the situation. I can’t fix it, I can’t change it, and I won’t be able to do anything about it.

So, instead of yelling and screaming, I went out, got some supper, and came home. I gave him his meal and I went to bed after talking it through with my sponsor. It doesn’t matter what I think about the situation, or who was right or wrong. What’s important is that I didn’t escalate the situation. It’s not helpful, and it isn’t necessary.

I chose my husband. That’s just it. We both signed the marriage license.

Meanwhile, I’m going to curl up with an afghan and some knitterly goodness. Take care my friends. -L
