Just Not Feeling Like Posting Lately

tumblr_pcdp4e7JoL1u1b4w2o1_500-removebgCause I got a sore throat and a COLD the very same day the weather turned nice around here. So, for a week now I’ve felt like shit.

And I have no real idea what I’ve been doing except for “things” around the house. Weed-Whacked today. Finally got rid of the carpet that was in the living room. (That took 4 of us to handle!) Made a trip or two into town. Home Depot sold me another $236 or so in flooring.

Made a trip to the Building Department in Shelton to get a copy of the plans for our house. Forty minute drive. Waited in line for 15 minutes. Oh, we throw them away 6 months after completion. Forty minutes back. Laid out in the sun the rest of the afternoon.

But, the bright spot has been the Weather the last 3-4 days. Over 80 degrees so, naked Wx! Cool! Dog and I have been taking off all our clothes and laying out in the Sun and trying to thaw out down to our bones. Nice!

Planning to make some structural changes in the MILA. Take out a wall. Put in a wall and closet. Turn the shower/tub into a walk in shower. Replace the vanity in that bath. I may get a wild hair and redesign the kitchen and do that one cabinet at a time. We’ll see. Had a contractor come over to give me guestimates but I need to find out what’s in the wall I want to remove and we’ll go from there. Of course, the plans for our house no longer exist so that means I’ll have to cut into the wall. Sucks!

Personally, I’m getting weaker by the week now. Don’t know if it’s this cold (this week) or I have something more systemic going on. My morning walks are getting harder. Sometimes by the time I get to the top of the road I’m ready to go home. Wouldn’t be fair to the Dog though. And I usually complete the mile. And do a couple more during the day by walking the back 40 (especially if it’s warm). But I’m damned sick and tired of being sick and tired. Especially the tired part. I’m only (almost) 67! Fuck!

Had a couple of real killer migraine’s last week. The “Just kill me and get it over with” kind. So I stopped by the local “head shop”l and bought a vape cartridge with 3/1 CBD/THC mix to see if it helps with the next migraine. Last time I took one of SWMBO’s oxycontin(sp?) and I really don’t want to do that again. It worked, but …

Anywho, didn’t make the choir this week and probably won’t make it next. Have no desire to pass on this cold or whatever has my throat feeling so sore. I do enjoy singing with them. Fun! Maybe doing this will get me trained some.

And that’s it. Just trying to catch up.

Another Sunday Coming Through!

SWMBO and I sat in our new chairs and watched Avengers: Infinity War on the 65” with the sound bar blaring and it was pretty nice. Enjoyed the movie but hated the ending. Cause it didn’t end. So, two years or more until the NEXT non-end?

My Renter Needed A New FB Pic. Really Nice!

Not a whole heck of a lot going on around here. Been warm (warm!) this past week so the dog and I spent a lot of time outside walking our trails. Nice. Getting kind of boring but still nice. I do like our property. Just wish there was about 20+ more acres of it. That would be nice!

Garden is almost done. I checked and the beets aren’t actually growing beets; just lots of leaves. Really green leaves with red lines in them; but, no beets. Peas are all in and the dead vines pulled out. Mater’s are coming in great though. LOTS of cherry tomato’s. SWMBO needs to take some of these to work and give them away.


Decided to let SWMBO go visit her parents by herself and I’ve gotta cancel the trip to Texas for Thanksgiving. I was under a LOT of stress to get that new Cargo Trailer and get it set up for camping and get on the road by the beginning of November. Got to causing anxiety and I don’t want anxiety in my life. So we changed things around. Wish I could go with SWMBO but it just ain’t gonna work out this year.

Other than that: nada. I will be renting a lift or crane by mid-Sept to get my tower off the ground and up. Need to go to Harbor Freight and get a wench and a long rope. Why climb when I can winch myself up!
