My Brain, the Junk Drawer… Everything You May or May Not Need

I’m not quite sure what kind of day this will be.  I got a tail snapped in my eye as we got up (Pitty tails really need to be registered as lethal weapons) so I’m not sure how that will look later.  I can tell you it hurts right now.  I didn’t sleep well but I did get some sleep.  I don’t think it is going to be a good back day.  It woke me a few times last night and is a dull ache with the occasional sharp pain.  I am not feeling negative nor positive.

The wind has been strong and steady all night.  I am grateful that the furnace did not blow out.  The wind I think has made me restless in spirit.  On the plus side the snow is once again rapidly disappearing.  There is even talk of rain later.  Soooooo maybe a ride on the bikes for the new year?  We’ll see.

No work on the garage until tomorrow.  I have mixed feelings about that.  But how I feel won’t change it so I need to move on.  Once the garage is done I can vent all I want.  Until then… gotta keep the mouth shut.

I find myself going back to some of my research books for one of my novels.  I did get the novel written.  It needs to be edited.  Then put into the computer (yes I write my first drafts longhand).  Although I do have a handy (pardon the pun) program that my Dad got me called IRIS.  I use a special pen to write with that is hooked to the computer and viola!  I don’t have to type anything in!  It does it automatically.

So much I need to get done today.  Like doing my guitar and writing classes.  I feel better than yesterday, physically and mentally.  I am worried about Dante.  He is very restless.  I’m not sure if it is because he can’t get comfortable or because he hurts.  He’s 15 years old and getting stiff in the joints.  I think this might be his last winter with us.

I used my new fountain pen for the first time yesterday.  It works very well.  My only issue is loading it with ink.  I can either get cartridges or I have one of those refillable ones to pull ink up from a pot of ink.  I can’t get the cartridges I have to works and the refillable one I can’t get to fill all the way.  Maaaaaybe half way if I’m lucky.  Oh well.  Like the bike I just need to use it more and practice.

I’m trying not to make resolutions for the new year.  That has never worked for me.  I instead make a list of suggestions for myself for the new year.  I get more done when I do that.  My mind is all over like the wind.  I apologize for all the random topic changes.  Time, I think, to close the junk drawer for now.  Cheers!
