Per Linda:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “iron(y).” Use “iron,” use “irony,” or use both. Use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

I am allergic to this word for the picture it conjures up. Especially on Saturday.

Shoot! Even writing it makes it show up.

You see, growing up, doing the family pressing was my job. Every dang Saturday. The whole family’s!

Granted the guys had to vacuum, cut grass and the like. And Mom did all the laundry, even before we had a dryer. That meant she hung up the clothes then when dry, she brought me the wrinkled clothes.

It seemed a never ending mountain. Not to mention Mom was angry every single Saturday.

Now I look at it with my t-shirts and permanent press and the occasional steamer (once every couple years?) and realize how unfair the world has been to women and especially my mother.

I am tired. I wish I could think of something ironic to say here. But maybe I’m anemic?

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.

Tuesday


Not much to report today. Tired. But outside of a nice nap to make up for low sleep, I managed to progress on these.

I’ve had my yWriter7 open all day. I’m determined to write something before going to bed tonight.


Still kind of tired so the week is going slow. ☹️

I got new glasses.

$15 at Amazon. Blue Light Protection, well, what it says on the box up there. The bottom part is a 3.50 and it gradually goes less. I wish the top was just clear as I still have to glance over the top for farther away, like television. But they help a lot for reading, knitting, and Diamond Painting.

Speaking of which:

Half of the bird is done now. Oh. And I got a QuickStik. Still new at using it but some people love it. I’ll let you know later.

Oh, and using the ruler is wobbly after hitting the middle section of the picture. Again, maybe there’s a learning curve.

My friend gave me new yarn. Are you feeling the giddiness I felt receiving it? Whee! ❤️❤️❤️🤗

And this cotton blend calls to being spa slippers. Couldn’t even keep it off the loom!

I still haven’t climbed back into the editing chair. 😢 Maybe tomorrow or weekend will get me going.

It is slightly warmer lately, but the wind keeps me inside. Even so I’m cold. I’m working on my diet to see if that’s the problem. With some foods unavailable in our stores I’m needing to be creative. Time for some shifting around.

Zero Energy


For the last two days I feel like I’m out of batteries. It might be the

Sleep last night.

I’m Tired


It’s been a long day that’s ended with dilated pupils and few words. I hope you don’t mind if I skip the rest of this blogging for today. I’ll catch you up tomorrow.

New Shoes


I’m so tired. But look what I got from our town run!

These are ASICS gel running shoes for my #none2run program. Which will start out as mostly walking.

Now I’m going to bed.

Made it, Monday


Well, I made it to my daughter’s. It was a long but fun ride with my friend. We enjoyed 60s oldies to get us through the trip.

Sadly, we had to drive through a lot of smoke to get into Reno. So much burned on either side of the freeway. A lot of home lost or in danger. Many were evacuated awaiting a chance to see if they still have homes. It’s so sad.

My people are safe. But this is not so for so many.

Meanwhile, temps are in the triple digits. Thank goodness for AC in the homes I’m visiting.

I’m so tired from the trip I think I’ll retire early.


My rocker recliner is my best friend. Not only has it kept me in isolation from the covid, now it has rescued me from four days of traveling for four hours a day. I am in this rocker recliner and I’m staying and that’s all I’ve got to say about that.

Happy Saturday — and my man is home! ❤❤❤


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “roc.” Find a word with “roc” in it or use it as a word all by itself. Enjoy!

Ich Bin Müde!


Sorry, I’m stuck in Duolingo German! I am tired! Three days this week, spending 3 or 4 hours driving. I’m worn out. And I need to go back tomorrow.

I remember when I was 22, my husband and I drove 4 hours to see our folks. At that age, 4 hours of driving a day were tiring.

Some people here do this every day. They drive those hours to get to and from work. They must have terrific jobs, and they must pay them a lot of money because I’m going through a lot of money just going back and forth.

Anyway, my husband is spending one more night at the hospital. They found that he had two ulcers from taking medications that were messing him up. So maybe the fall that sent him to the hospital actually found things before they caused too much trouble. They just needed to watch him overnight.

At another time, I could have stayed with him at night, but with the fear of COVID19, they try to make sure that there’s only one visitor and the visitor can only stay during the daytime.  I think that my own fear, having heard how much the hospital is dealing with new and more dangerous cases in younger people, has me extra cautious. Even though we are vaccinated, I fear that there are still strains or other types of flu just waiting for those who aren’t vigilant. I haven’t gotten the other cases of flu for decades as keeping isolated during outbreaks. At the time, I thought I was allergic to the vaccines. It was a doctor that told me not to take the shots after a bad outcome one year. Now though, I’ve heard they are no longer making them with albumin, so I may be taking the shots from now on.  But like many, I have a few immune issues, and so I have been conscientious. It isn’t that I’m afraid of dying. I don’t like being sick. Been there, done that, and being in bed unable to do anything while being miserable is worth fighting against!

Well, midnight is creeping up, and I need to get to bed and get ready for another ride. Okay. It isn’t all horrid. I am getting lots of singing done. Great for breath and mental health! And the view through the mountainous areas with trees and the occasional deer is so peaceful. I’m glad that the pain I used to get through that part of the ride is down to just a little achy and not an all-over pain storm. Still, I am going to be happy without going any more this week!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

have a good weekend
