Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun! Per Linda G. Hill.

I am horrid at mail of any kind. Email and snail correspondence get dusty waiting for me. Especially since we moved into the middle of nowhere. With no house delivery, we used to go to the post office a couple of times a week. We now are lucky when picking it up a couple of times a month.

I have a friend I would love to emulate in her mailing habits. Out of the blue recently I received the above postcard. She wrote a haiku on the back with a nice message of affection. She is the one that sent the present a day for advent. They were things like dollar store bubbles or silly putty. But out here and with the fibro keeping my housebound most of the winter, these were treasures. I felt like a little kid with each gift I opened. I feel the same when I receive a postcard or letter from her.

Not only is this humbling to me, but it also teaches me how little things can make life worth living.

This is my promise in front of the whole internets: I will start writing notes, letters and other types of posts to this friend and others. Even in Spanish if I have to. 😉😎

Finished Friday 20190322


With all that has been happening this week, and the constantly changing weather, here is one thing I can feel good about:

A little, soft newborn hat.

KB Baby Hat loom. K2, P2 brim. Flat stitch knit, LoomaHat’s Decrease Bind Of. See below.

Happy Friday, everyone!

One-Liner Wednesday 20190320


Here There Be Dragons

And who knows what else?

Linda’s One-Liner Wednesday is so much fun. Come join us click here for the rules!


The Sole With Soul

I don’t know why I made that title. Mostly to remind me of the prompt of the day. But it did make me see dancers. Yes, this one:

For seeing the sole of the shoe in the moonwalk dance during the Billie Jean performance brought me back to listening to popular music. The 70s were not nearly as exciting for me as the 60s so I had taken to just my few albums, ​33 1⁄3  if you please.

The next decade offered tons of wonderful music as one of my children noticed the Beatles and another the Cure and Depeche Mode and Queen I was happy to turn on the radio. The kids and I sang loudly!

Music plays a part in my soul at all times with such eclectic turns and extremes. From the forced piano lessons from ages 5-15, church music, singing non-stop even in my dreams, classic and even an occasional loud metal or rap. It’s all in there and always on.

As for the other picture in my mind for the prompt, and I hope I can find a picture that matches the one in my head, the dancing sole-fish:

Okay, I know it isn’t a sole fish, but he seems to be dancing with soul!

 

 

Thanks, Linda, for this fun challenge!


 

Chapter 2 is following Chapter 1 of Haven.

 

 

I hope that counts for a One-Liner Wednesday one-liner. To add to that line if you want to read the whole book or in another place find Haven here.

All’s Good Sunday 20190310


If you are seeing this, it is because I am writing this on my Acer that is now working again. This is my inner spirit:

So today was about starting the next hat on a bigger loom.

Sorry I can lighten the picture as my old editor isn’t here. The brim is too dark in this picture. But it is almost the length that I fold it up and continue the hat.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

 


Abashed

There is something In this world that can leave the averaged person abashed. Yep, the blue screen of death. When it appears on your computer screen. But I have a hero in my house. My own personal IT guy. Yep. My husband is the best! Though I’m still using my tablet, it is only because he’s running all the utilities (because I’m horrible at doing that.)

I started the morning feeling sad about my poor machine. I watched season three of Game of Thrones. I finished another hat like the last one. I don’t think you’ll be able to tell the difference. But here’s the proof.

And in case you think this is old news, it’s snowing.

Ever feel you’re in a timey-wimey glitchy thingy? Me, too. Don’t forget your clocks tonight.

Thank you, Linda, for the Stream of Consciousness challenge!


My friends and I were finishing our Face timing when the screen froze and I got this:20190308_193945 1

 

So from my tablet this is all I have in me to do.  😢

We’ll see what we can do about it tomorrow. Hope you’re having a better Friday!

 

One Thousand! 20190304


I am excited and humbled:

Thank every one of you!! ❤


Wow. I just changed my physical calendar. That’s how out of it I feel. Those trips to the ER/Bend are so hard on me, especially when we don’t get home until 4:00AM and asleep at 5:00AM. We slept well past noon. Just exhausted. STILL two days later. We should be celebrating the relocated shoulder.

Maybe some won’t understand the extreme tiredness that happens to those of us with chronic illnesses like fibromyalgia, arthritis, etc. The days of a quick recovery and getting back to business takes a lot longer.

Lots of naps as just sitting around doing less than nothing happens as I try to get something done. Yeah. Laundry did happen. Three loads felt more like 50 loads. I should know. I had four kids so I know laundry.

It is exciting to know that Snowmageddon has calmed down. The temps are higher, the snow is melting. Maybe March is going to be better than February? I sure hope so. When I finally recover I hope the mud and ice are gone so I can get outside and walk, and maybe get rid of some ‘guilt’bushes (sage that is growing to close to the house presenting a fire hazard).

I tried a new Yoga today but I don’t think I’m ready so as of tomorrow I’ll get the chair yoga going again.

There is a lot more to say but the energy is gone. Maybe I’ll get back to it tomorrow.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is a challenge brought to us by Linda G. Hill.
