Back again! I know you missed me; thank you so much for your notes and encouragements. Sometimes, it is true, we just have to walk away for awhile, reassess the damages, repair as best we can then get back to it. I was spending far too much time on this page and, after all these years, it was getting to me in the form of depression and hopelessness. Not good!
I spent days bingeing on shows that had NO electricity, not a cell phone or television in sight. Poldark. Queen's Gambit. Jamestown. The Crown. (With a huge grain of salt.) Witcher. Rome. The Gilded Age. I Am Not OK With This. Stranger Things. Been trying Peaky Binders but not getting too far. I just HAD to delve into other times less complicated...
To avoid repeating that previous problem, I am making a few changes in content, most of them involving Democrat or Liberal madness. We all know Biden is senile; no need to remind us of this every week. We know Trudeau is an arse; no need to visit that every week. Although, tbh, never a day passes without these men reminding us of their status!
Also, I plan to complete this page ready to go early in the evening so that I can actually waken early enough to spend time with friends, something I did for years but was no longer able to do. These past few weeks, that has been so good!
My faith in humanity has been boosted once again. Last week I lost my swimming Sony Walkman, not a cheap investment and the most important part of my swim, other than water. Constant searching, no results. Tomorrow I was going to see if I could find another, although I could not really afford. I had checked at the pool several times and given up but today, on a whim, I asked one more time. And there they were! A child had picked it up and tossed it in his bag; Mom found it when she took out his wet gear; she returned it to the pool. Yes, people are innately decent creatures.
My car has been detailed, sparkplugs and lines replaced. Dang I barely recognize it without the mini forests growing out of its outer nooks and crannies; so shiny! That was a very expensive gift that was so overdue. Now it looks great but I can barely afford to put gas in...
36 years ago tonight I was in active labour with my second daughter. Ah, warm memories of ... the absolute wonder of birth. And now she is the mother... I the grandmother.
Anyhow. It feels good to be back and off we go!
