Late Wake


I woke yesterday at 2pm. I got nothing done. Thought it was the stupidest thing I had done since I was a teen. But today I woke at 3pm. Geez. Okay, so part of it is the chronic fatigue/fibro that makes me so tired and once I get awake I try to do all I can to feel normal. But that means I see the sunrise at 5am and fight to go to sleep. 

Reading or watching TV or movies on Netflix helps me hide from the pain while I’m awake. So, I finished reading Fingersmith last night and didn’t feel like sleeping because it was such an exciting last few chapters. (Review to follow.) Then I got involved in a Netflix series called Land Girls about ladies who helped in the war effort in England. I am not well versed on wars and only want to know what my sisters were doing while men proved whose bombs are bigger. I especially like one of the girls, Bea, I think is her name. She looks like “Rose” from Doctor Who. I’ve already forgotten both actresses names, but honestly they could be twins or at least sisters. Anyway, the show is interesting enough to keep my pain-brain busy while not being adrenaline driven.

Here it is, time to turn on the lights and I’ve barely eaten breakfast? Lunch? Blinner? Part of the problem is my hubby worked nights for so long that his clock is permanently screwed up. My biorhythms adjusted to what is natural to me–bedtime should be about 2am. And then extended to his. Grrr!

Okay, now to write my review.

20140625 Domiciles


20140625 Blog?
Well, it has been a rough day and so I am getting here as most people are going to sleep in our area. Oh well, such is my life. At least I’m writing, hey?

I am watching Treehouse Masters right now. Do any of you watch it? My hubby and I  dream of treehouse living. I know, old folks like us. We, who chose to live downstairs in this apartment because we didn’t want to climb the stairs with our disabilities. But how about a treehouse with some sort of elevator? I used to live in the upstairs apartment and loved how I felt up there. The only thing I didn’t like was that my cat of the time decided she could fly. She lived through that and many more years, nearly 18 years.

Another program I like, is Tiny House. Wait. That isn’t a program it is a documentary on Netflix. I think I could live like that. DH would probably not like it.

On the same thread, have you watched, You Live in What? I love that people are getting creative in their choices of domiciles. Of course, with this last show, I find most of these places take a small fortune to pull off. Still, the creativity these shows contain is contagious.

What I learn from the treehouses, Tiny House, and mobile homes are the multipurpose surfaces, and how to install the best storage for things. Tiny House encourages me to purge the many things collected over the years. That is a hard one for me as I haven’t the energy most of the time to gather up and remove all those extras that gather in a person’s home on a regular basis. Having a Kindle or two has made the book collecting less dust attracting, yet I still find I need more treebooks.–Hey, there’s an idea! A treehouse for treebooks! I wonder if that has ever been done? Now I just need a plot of land, with healthy trees and a windfall enough to pay the master to build it! With lots of storage and WiFi!

This is not what I wanted to write today. I wanted to continue my story with the character escaping the earthquake, bareback, on a friendly wild horse. Maybe tomorrow. Any suggestions for the story? Any constructive critiques?

Well, 390 words is not enough. If I were writing this on my desk, you could picture me banging my head on the desk. Luckily writing from a bed is much safer. Similar to writing in a padded room. ;-D

Oh, shoot! I just remembered! I forgot to write my review for Zen and the Art of Writing. I finished it two days ago. Guess that will add some words for me. So goes the mind of ADD. Catch me in the next post. <>


Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison
Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison by Piper Kerman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have to admit that I picked up the hardback copy from the library after watching the series on Netflix. The tree version hurt my eyes to read so I went ahead and bought my own Kindle version. I’m glad I did. This book was worth every penny! I could listen to text-to-speech while I read. It might have been even better to have the audio-version with human voice but this was just fine.

The beginning was very satisfying as it mirrored the Netflix version. The book proceeded from there a little less raw. It did feel like Ms. Kerman was putting a good spin on her experience in prison. The Netflix version puts in a lot more drama. Which is the real version? I don’t know but I feel like it may fall somewhere in between. I think the Netflix may take other stories about prison life and show other things that may go on.

Piper Kerman’s writing kept me engaged and wanting to know what was happening next. I was impressed with her zen attitude and reserve while describing some of the horrid things that go on in prison life. Even though I am twice her age I could identify with feelings she eloquently expressed.

Everyone should read this book. Men and women alike, all ages and races. We can all appreciate the message and maybe help create a better world.
