Books, Dogs, Gardening, Life, Nature, Thinking


Thank you to everyone for your support yesterday.  It was needed and very much appreciated.  Things are marginally better today (aka I can mostly function).  But I don’t want to rehash yesterday.  I want to move on from that.  I look around the room for something to write about…  I am trying not to be in a bad place.

My big escape has been books.  I’m back to Agatha Christie novels.  Getting lost in the 20s and 30s is an enjoyable thing.  I’ve not gotten to any Miss Marple books yet.  I am still randomly going thru Poirot and the like.  I imagine I will escape there after I finish this.

A quick (because there is not much to tell) garage update… They are supposed to come out today to “finish.”  There are no doors that have been delivered.  No other equipment or parts have been delivered.  No one has done anything all week except for a quick few hours earlier in the week.  For those following this saga you will remember that things were supposed to be finished by the end of August.  Today is the last day of August.  Truthfully I don’t expect anyone to show up today.  I expect that we will have to go to court and that someone else will be finishing the garage.

It is very chilly this morning.  I am not in the least ready for Fall, let alone Winter this year.  I have been using the heater at work in the mornings.  I also need to start trying to figure out where I am going to put all these plants that I have brought home.  I’m sure it will be cold enough to frost before I know it.  There is no place to put all those plants.  I also wanted to dig up a few tomato and cucumber plants to keep in the house over the winter (like I have my pepper plants).  I may end up repotting a few plants to use their big pot.  We shall see.

The kids are asleep in their various spots.  We went to bed last night around 9pm.  I had been awake since 4am so I was beat.  We got up at our usual 7am.  I am trying to keep to a routine even on days off.  That and if I get up early it is my quiet time.  Everyone is still sleeping and I can pretty much do what I need to with no issues.

I hope everyone has a great day.  Thank you again for all the support.
