Winds In The East...

Mist coming in...

From the series by P. L. Travers

Look for the answer to this question:  where did Mary Poppins come from?

Little By Little - March 18, 2018

LIttle by little I’ve been working in the area next to the door to my home.  It’s where the dining room table meets the pantry (aka bookshelves as there is no kitchen pantry).

This is how it looked in 2016:

This is how it looked in 2017:

This is how it looks as of tonight (with the new blue recycle bin for paper products to go out):

Next on the list will be the pantry.  There is a lot of expired foods there, so it will need to be gone through.  In the meantime, I’ve consolidated the extra treats into a bin behind the apron and blue recycle bag, and the white bin to the left of it on the shelf holds the consolidated (and not expired) cough drops.  I did n’t realize I had that much, but now that everything is in a reachable spot, I won’t be needing to buy any more cough drops for a LONG time!

Oral surgery went well.  I have a mouth full of stitches and a really sore jaw (TMJ), so the next few days will be quiet ones.  

I should have everything I need as far as groceries and I’ve picked up the prescriptions and some items they wanted me to use post op for bleeding, swelling, inflammation.

Now for the healing to begin.  One more thing to check off my self care list.  Painful, yes, but needed.

Yesterday morning the repair shop came by with my rental and picked up my car.  What happened?  A car accident on the 5th.  I won’t go into details, and thankfully my little Honda wasn’t so badly damaged it would be totaled.  Some minor work on the dents.

I got word while at Walgreens today that, if all goes well, I should have my little car back this Friday!  In the meantime, I’m driving a rental, and since the small vehicles were unavailable, they have me driving a Dodge Grand Caravan.  It’s nice, but waaaaaay too big for me.  I’ll take my little Honda instead.

Do You Ever Feel Invisible?

I do, a lot.  I don’t think I’ve ever been a part of a “cool crowd”, and perhaps that’s a good thing.

A dear friend posted this article on Facebook and I thought I’d share it here.

Am I Invisible


Very, very cool.  I’m so thrilled that some of our young ones are seeking the life that suits them, rather than the expected norms.  Yesterday’s article is now a story on PBS Newshour.
