Regardless of the situation, no matter how hopeless the outcome may be, I will never quit, and I will never back down. I have become the wolf.

Bad dreams and other things


Dreamt of clowns and balloons and scary places last night.  Woke up this morning with a headache and a sore shoulder.  I guess I slept on my arm wrong.  I hate that.  I also hate when my ear folds over in my sleep and I wake up with a crease in my ear.  Mucho painful.

I think I’ve finally tamed the furnace monster in the house.  Thanks to Joe for putting in a programmable thermostat I’m able to better maintain a constant heat in the house.  I haven’t had night sweats in two nights and I haven’t had to use a comforter in the living room.  Good things.  And socks are now an option, not mandatory.

So, did my first real “bead” show in quite a few years yesterday.  Got to meet a lot of the Guild ladies from GlassAct.  It’s strange putting faces to names on the computer.  I’ve known some of these ladies for years,  just never met them.  I hope I did well.  I shared a table with the guild so I’m waiting for a tally from the treasurer.  I know some things sold, just not sure how many.  I was really surprised by how many people I met said that they read this.  If you’re reading this, HI!  It was great to meet you finally.  Feel free to leave comments, ask questions or just pick on me.

Actually cooked dinner tonight.  Sweet Potato, carrot and turnip soup, Lemon pepper cod (oven fried), and green beans.  I need to make more soups now that fall is here.  I love squash soup.  All the yummy fall root veggies.  I wish that the tomatoes had had a better season this year.  I usually buy a bushel and can them for the winter.  I can’t  justify spending what the growers are asking for them this year.  And they are small and mealy.

I can’t believe that it’s almost Halloween already.  Oh, but I am looking forward to Sunday.  We are meeting C & L and the grands, with M and making an afternoon of a cider mill.  Yeah, photo-op.  I really miss the kids.  I so wish they lived closer.  I know, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.  I can’t help it though.  I look at the pictures on FB and just want to run down there and hug them up.

Ok, enough maudlin for tonight.  I need to put in some time in the “crap” room upstairs.  I have so much stuff to get rid of and no idea how or where to offer it.  Have a safe and comfortable evening everyone.

The sound of silence


Sometimes there is no more beautiful sound.  Knowing that no-one else is in the house.  It releases a kind of peace for me.

It’s funny, when I first got sick, I hated being alone all the time.  I’ve worked full-time since thirteen and was so not used to the pleasure of my own company.  Then I gradually got used to the sound of a quiet house.  The ticking of the grandfather clock, the little click when the a/c turns  on, the hum of the pool pump.  Soft quiet noises, house whispers as it were.

My house hardly whispers any more, the house shouts with the sound of heavy footfalls and doors slamming.  Talking will start from out of nowhere, thoughts interrupted, questions asked.  I’m used to it again, but every once in a while, the house falls silent.  No one home but me.  I can hear my home whisper to me again.

They will be home soon, my noisemakers, and I’ll welcome them home.  But for now I’m going to turn on my torch, put the radio on loud and melt some glass.  I’ll show you tomorrow what I get done today.
