Tag Archive: Thus Thursday



I’m doing my best to be my usual positive self despite the mully grubs of reality.

Snow. Lots. Just not all at once. It gets to this level, melts and reflakes.

We’ve got a couple more hours then it will be windy.

Meanwhile, my therapy of knitting keeps my hands moving while I process life, pets, and loved ones no longer with us.

My son and his girlfriend are traveling up. Snow or no snow. These socks are for them.

Nearly all the yarn for both pairs has been used up. I hope I’m done by tomorrow evening when they get here.

The reason for their scary mission is a memorial for my first dear sister in love. That’ll be Saturday in Portland. For my son it will be a 12 hour or more drive in much worse conditions than we have here. That’s how beloved Barb was/is for us.

I wanted to go. But my body is telling me that’s too long to be in a car. I used to handle long drives. But, especially being emotionally distraught from the losses of my furry friends, it seems far too much.

My older son is being picked up by the younger couple on the mission. I must admit to being very worried for all of them. As much as I would love to see my nieces and nephews, and sharing my condolences, I just can’t. I think I’ll write a letter or record my thoughts for them.

All of this plays on the huge housecleaning we need from our poor sickly Kali. We’ve done some but we are exhausted and can’t do as much as our younger selves could have accomplished.

One thing at a time. Doing what we can with what we’ve got. Sending and accepting love. Healthy mind and body.

Thus Thursday


I’m still recuperating, not so much from the surgery but so many long trips on so little sleep. My husband noticed I don’t wear glasses while knitting or diamond painting. I still haven’t been brave enough to play piano or recorder for fear of not seeing the music properly.

I’m back to doing Morning Pages and working through both Artist Way and It’s Never Too Late by Julia Cameron.

My Life is still progressing. Five more days in May to meet my goal. I think it’s doable.

Lots getting done. Lots of writing. Still need to rest my eyes a lot while marveling over this miracle.


It started this morning with this sweety holding down the foot of my recliner while knitting.

Made progress on my dragon.


Saw this on Facebook:

Unfortunately, that is all the music of the day. πŸ˜₯

But finally got the wordage flowing. With the 25k goal I’m at 13,462. I may have another thousand before bed. So it looks doable again.

Sock 1 is heading for the heel. I’ll probably get there tomorrow.

The end is in sight on this dragon.

I got a lot of listening to book 7 of Outlander while dotting today.
Another crazy April morning!

Thus Thursday


It was so pretty last night. I wanted to go out and play. I wanted to put up Christmas lights. Instead I enjoyed Kali’s many ‘outsides’. I let the snow hit me in the face and land on my clothes.
Morning beauty. But too icy to walk now. Two hours later no snow except on the north side of the house. Green is showing up. Mud is driveway and roads. More expected tomorrow.
Meanwhile, dragon is coming along.

But now I need to get back to writing. This is me knuckling down.

That would be Teddy my Ginger! Yeah, he’s a sun soaker.

Thus Thursday


A quick peek out my window.

It’s been a day. I feel accomplished. The NaNoWriMo goal for today calls for 18,337. A Zoom write in with a friend pulled 18,430 words. With the coming appointment days I wanted to be farther ahead. There’s still enough day to add more.

Duo is done. I’m in a hard lesson but I finally got it done!

And I had no idea what to put here but that sunset got me a start. The rain had been more than usual. I love it! The clouds keep the sky beautiful.

Now back to writing.

Happy Friday Junior!

Thus Thursday


The actual word count for my NaNoWriMo project, Crystal is 7,040. I will be writing more as soon as I’ve done some recorder playing. I’m trying to stay a day or so ahead while the story is calling to me as it will get harder and I will lose medical days so.. Yay! Me!

Just a note for future reference, the weather wants to be rainy but is windy instead. Yuck! We need the rain or even snow!

I’m almost caught up in the Doctor Who marathon. I’m finally up to Jodie Whittaker and the Rosa episode. I love this one!

Well, those recorders won’t play themselves.

How was your Thursday?

Thus Thursday


Don’t you hate it when you make the plan to postpone publishing a blog for another date and then suddenly you have published it? Yeah, the review yesterday was supposed to be today’s blog. Oh well. Live and learn!

It’s all coming together! I have a dining/hobby room! I put a screen up to hide my piano for a bit of privacy. Yeah, they can still hear me, but I am not distracted by folks as they sit in the other room or walk by. And now that there is so much room! I’m seriously thinking of bringing the recording studio up to that room. The curtains can be the background screen or the piano. Trouble is if the family tries to walk through, there might be problems, especially if they want to talk. At least the bedroom has a door, and I can put up a sign. Okay, maybe not.

My company will be here Sunday. My error. I was just too excited to have someone visit. But now grateful for the chance to keep cleaning. And the last few days have been lovely. So working was easy. Still have plenty to do. And I know I will be so happy when I get back from my trip to see the house so tidy.

I have continued my music in the evenings. Some things are improving some still need lots of work. I have signed up for recorder lessons for free on FaceBook that I hope will help with the breath. And stiff fingers.

Guess what I found while cleaning?! My Day Runner. Did any of you have one of those? I think that was what it was called. I found with a little work I could get it up and running again. I am finding the calendar and contacts on my phone get messed up too often. And I think it will keep me more organized with my crafts and hobbies. Maybe then I will remember to get to my Zoom Writer’s Meet? For some reason, I have a time in my day that I forget it is Monday, and I don’t remember until the meeting is long over. Boo! me.

And I found this within it:

Next time I go to Bend I can rent something! Remember when it got funny to say, ‘Be Kind, Rewind’?

Well, time to go play some tunes! Keep cool everyone. If not, have pity on those who live in Death Valley. It should be 134F tomorrow.

I’ve shared my favorite break-fast of salmon, spinach, and cheese. But I have another that is sans cheese. And it was so filling I had to put up half for later.

I had made a sweet potato yesterday. It was too big so I put half of it in with the salmon and spinach. I had Bragg’s Liquid Aminos to give flavor. I recently bought these noodles. Check them out!

These add texture and fiber without too many carbs or calories. πŸ‘

Thus Thursday


Do you ever feel like this? A most unproductive day. Much nap, little knit. Maybe a good night’s sleep and I’ll be back to normal.

Hope your day had more fun and energy. πŸ€—πŸ’œ
