A double passing …

People may think it is strange I am mentioning both a fur-baby and a human passing in the same post, but since they passed in that sequence over the weekend I will talk about both in this blog.

The fur-baby started out in Michigan where my husband found her at a local shelter. She was the runt of a box of kittens someone had dumped off for adoption/disposal back in 1999. She traveled with him back to California and ended up with mom as her companion in 2004. She ended up traveling with mom to the Dakotas with two other cats and out lived them by many years. She was around 18 when she drew her last breath at 729 am on Sat.

Cleo and his wife were responsible for us moving from New Mexico to the Dakotas, and they became great friends. Cleo ran a real estate business and Carolyn was his partner in the business. Both worked hard in the community who didn’t accept strangers. He had heart problems and Diabetes, which cost him both legs and many trips to the hospital.  He was also an unpublished writer for which I hope will not remain so since Carolyn was editing his last book and I hope will have published soon. He passed in his sleep last night.

We will miss them both.

 

New teeth!

Well, the work is finally started on my mouth. HOPEFULLY I will have a full set of uppers and a partial lowers. I have never been so scared yet so excited in my life. Last month they pulled my upper teeth and I was not looking forward to the pain nor living off aspirin/pain killers for a week or more, but guess what! NO PAIN! When the dentist got through I asked him to do two more but he said he didn’t want to hear me humming tunes for several hours more.  I will get impressions for this in Oct. This month I am either getting 2 teeth pulled or 2 roots. Next month will be the reverse plus 1 filling. Then either Nov. or Dec. I will be getting the impressions for the bottom and or the upper teeth! FINALLY! I will finally get to eat all the raw veggies and meat I want without pain or hassle! I may even post a photo of me with my new teeth when I get the whole set! Maybe. Cheers!

Not sure …

This is one of those days when I am not sure how I feel. It is kind of a blah day, and it is two days before I go out of town for the first time in … I don’t know … forever! It falls mid month when I have already spent my allotment on inventory and groceries. This leaves me pretty close to broke again. I am not too upset about what I have purchased to date because most of the money from the last couple of months went into a kitty for an actual workshop where I can set up a small shop as well. But right now I am feeling kind of out of it. There are storms moving through the area which my joints harolded the past few days with pain in every part of my body from bottom to top.  I don’t like telling everyone about that because that is hubster’s thing. I can usually work through it, but today it wasn’t a good day for that. I would love to win the lotto and set up shop on a huge piece of property off the grid, but I think it will take a lot of hard work and more time than this ol’ crone believes she has left to do it.

Sorry guys, I just needed some vent time and possibly a sympathetic ear today. Thanks for reading. Have a great rest of the month. LOVE all the posts and photos I have seem. Keep up the great work.

The start of my fall musings.

The leaves are just starting to change to yellow. Today was cold and ugly out. My husband went out into the garden and came back saying my tomato  plants are actually still producing tiny green tomatoes. So far he has counted about 5. I didn’t go out today because it seems I have a pinched nerve in my hip. The last time this happened in was in my teens! Decided on Blueberry sour-cream pancakes today. As usual I asked our friend to join us but he was in Aberdeen so didn’t make it. <Sigh> At least I got a little rest. Working on sewing this next two weeks, and maybe an apple pie or two. If they turn out I will post photos.
