 Something I keep telling myself.

And the thing is many of the worries we have in life turn out pretty good. I can’t predict which ones but I do have to report that the Bank issue resolved itself bringing our balance back to helping our food stock to keep us fed for two weeks. Yay!

Another issue that we caught by looking at the bank statement worked out by calling the source. The specialist at that business saw the problem and solved it immediately. Reversed the charge and all was good. I hope you are all finding good things in the midst of all of this like we did today.

Took a walk, several times today. It was just in the yard but the sun was up and two of the four outings I could just wear a T-shirt! Wow! It was wonderful!

Maybe laundry is just a thing you get done in your house. I remember when in the family of six I was chief cook, bottle washer, and laundry matron. Now just getting my own laundry done is something I put off until there just isn’t anything else to wear and I’m down to my last towel. I remedied that today. Woo Hoo!

With fibromyalgia and arthritis, there are days of aches and pains, tiredness, and worry of fever. And this is spring so there is congestion going on. Normally I wouldn’t worry about any of it. I had gotten used to all those feeling and knew what to take to make it better for me. For the last couple of days, and this is just for the record, I’ve had all of that. Breathing is easy. The walks, though not with a lot of energy, were bearable. So I am claiming fibro and allergies. I’m not going anywhere more than I have been before, so I’m not spreading around my nearly hypochondriac sickness.

I did send out a question to our community about a mountain that my adult offspring like to camp at. It is only 12 miles away. And though the road is pretty rough, once you get there the scenery is awesome and the smell of pine trees is so uplifting to the spirit! But I was told that this is the season of wolves and big cats and one should take a gun. Not sure I want to deal with that. Still, it might be a nice ride for us and we could stay near the car. We have seen bear scat up there. But I think it might be a little soon for them. We’ll see if the cabin fever wins over the wilderness fear.

A friend of mine mentioned the importance of paper journaling during a pandemic. I have mentioned, and not followed through, starting to write more by hand. I am going to try and do that.

So the last thing I want to mention is: What a beautiful sunset we had tonight! Picture a lot more reds and pinks.

 

 

So this was a combination #WDIIA and #SoCS Thank you, Linda, for the wonderful prompts!

 

 

NaNo Update


Word count 11,751. Keeping it steady, at least.

 

Just in case you think all I do is write, very slowly, and nothing else is happening in my life:

Yeah, Kali isn’t impressed with NaNoWriMo. If it doesn’t involve her in my lap it is worthless.

 

And here is a gratuitous picture of the sunset two nights ago.

The air quality has been stagnant. We have a holding pattern of daytime highs in the low 60s and nights between high teens and twenties.

I’ve got a few socks that are almost done. Maybe one of them will hit Finished Friday???

 

Hope all of you are doing well. I hope my fellow NaNo-ers are getting words out the kazoo!

A Quick Brag


I’m up to 5,065! Yay! Me! Blog ya later

Oh, and the sunset was great tonight:

Sky


Captured last night sunset.

And snow soon!


It is 9:08PM. Until two minutes ago I had no idea what I had to offer you for today’s blog. Then I looked out the window. Here is what I captured west to east and west (trees are in the west) again.

 

And the sunset is still beautiful at 9:30PM. I love Summer for this beauty! And the sound of the frogs outside.

Oh, and I finished this little guy yesterday:

If you want to learn how, head over to LoomAHat.com or watch this YouTube. I use a much smaller loom and short row the arms so I don’t have to sew them on. And this time I used safety eyes. I think they’re cuter!

One-Liner Wednesday


 

Yesterday’s sunset was gorgeous all the way around. Today is the same. (Sorry for three sentences–power outages, thunder and lightning distractions!)

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for #1linerWed!

 


Last night I took this of our sunset. Why is it that it never looks like I see it in the picture? The red/orange was so bright against that dark blue that I nearly fainted at the sight.

By the way, I spent today working on first my set up for writing tomorrow and then went through some of my old books. I will need some of the old characters and places and planets from before so I didn’t want to forget where I’ve been in the Haven series.

Speaking of the Haven series, which you can read in full on Wattpad, I added chapter three to Haven 1-3. I hope to get some comments to help me make it a better story. It isn’t finished with the editing procedures, nor is the story ended after about 10 added books in the series.

Okay back to the Walking Dead season finale. Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday.

Snow Sunset


I just had to share what I saw from my recliner. Sunset in the snow clouds. I had to put down the loom and the little hat I’m making and grab my phone. I think this would be a cool book cover!


The moon was shining in the backyard.

In the front yard.

 

I know all the fires contribute to the beauty. So it is a bittersweet scene.


Did I mention, I love the sunsets here!
