With the colder, unpredictable changes in weather from hot to cold and back again, comes colds and other ailments. I have been lucky and have remained healthy of body. My mind … not so much ( chuckling behind my hand ) never said I was sane, but I like being different from others, but that’s for another time. The hubster is very depressed not only about not being able to travel to his birth state, but the fact that he has been down with a horrid head cold. He feels down, like he may not pull out of this one. I have been doing my best to keep his spirits up, but he doesn’t seem to want or listen to me. We try our best even if our best isn’t good enough for those who will not believe in my faith in them.
My husband is planning a trip next month. We plan on starting our trip on the 6th of Aug. We will be visiting the Michigan area, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana and the norther Dakotas. I’m hoping to do some antiquing and crafts along the way. I will try to take plenty of photos and include a description of some of the places we visit.
More later …
We had our first official frost a few days ago. The leaves are finally turning and starting to fall. Kotah and the squirrel are having a “Love/Hate” relationship going. The squirrel will wait until Kotah is an inch away than he (she?) will run with that inch always between them. When the squirrel is up on the roof or in the tree he/she mocks Kotah who sits under the tree mouthing off.
I decided that I needed to get rid of much of my items from before moving to the Dakotas. It is taking a lot of time, going through and weeding out what I will keep and what I am ridding myself of. Next week I will start one of my first official baskets since the museum shut down for the season … and it is not one of the ones the hubster wants me to work on.
My shop is almost ship-shape. Still need to go through the files and rearrange them to suit my own quarkiness. I even have a set of shelves to house my craft books and display some of my finished baskets! Now if I can get people around here to understand I don’t need to be in public to sell my items!
Well, since the museum closed I am actually getting things done I have been wanting to do. I did a bit of fall decorating in the house and my shop (I moved my alter out here so I can have some “quiet time” with my deities.) You could say I was doing spring cleaning in the fall. I have shredded 5 bags of papers and receipts what were way out of date as well as going through my files and clothes. I set a goal of getting these done by October so I can start working on my crafts and getting ready for the spring festivals.
I actually started counseling, though the way they conduct it is rather not what I would call patient/doctor privilege since they are passing me back and forth between two doctors. NOT HAPPY about that. My husband said they may be trying to get me “over” my mental problems so I can go back to work. I know it will never happen so I wonder why I am bothering with all this superficial BS. I have ordered my coffees that I sell at the Christmas fairs so if I do go (which I don’t think I will this year) I will have inventory to sell. Anyway, that is what is happening today. Hope you all had a great Mabon (At least those of you who celebrate that is). Til next time…
My hubster came back from Michigan last week and promptly ended up in the hospital for a couple of days. Still don’t know what caused the pain, but it is an off again on again thing that the doc. can’t seem to pin down. After he got home we had two days of “lovie dovie” and now it is “We need to pair down and clean things out!” Today, however, he went with his narcissistic friend for the day to N. Dakota. I can heave a sigh of relief so I can do what I want to do, not what he demands. This includes some meditation and relaxation. HAZZAH!!!!! Just not looking forward to his coming home with his friends ideas filling his head and personality.
Last Thurs. I ordered a day bed frame, a mattress and bedding. One would think that would be the order they would arrive …. NOT! I got the bedding Tues. the Mattress today and I am not going to get the bed (which I need by Friday) until next week since we don’t have Saturday deliveries. One would think it would come either on the same day or in the order of frame then mattress then bedding. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!!!
