Joulie just ran past my kitchen door. She is retrieving a ball that Mike threw from his house down the hall. She appears to be having quite the time now that the neighbors have discovered her fetch fetish!
I’ve been spending time making advent calendars and some doo dads for the holidays. It may seem early, but I run out of time to do things once November comes. Typically I have to spend October in preparation if I don’t want to spend a million dollars at Christmas. FYI I don’t want to spend a million dollars at Christmas. Not only am I grateful to save some bucks but I’m also happy it relaxes me. I can get pretty uptight.
I’m grateful for the other artists in my family. My nephew is currently painting a picture for me that I want to give as a gift for an upcoming birthday. He’s the guy that did skip as Napoleon for me.
I am always grateful for my neighbors who love my doggies and also take care of me. My back is pretty messed up so Mike just removed my air conditioner for me. What a great guy. Judi just left a humongous package of dried cherries for baking on the bench outside my door.
I went to see my Mom yesterday. She and I were talking. She is in her late eighties but thinks she would like to make it to her early 90s. I hate having those conversations but I think she needs to have them to take some of the scare out of growing older. She has definitely become more frail over the past few years which is a concern. I’m grateful for my Mom…we have our issues but I will miss her if she decides to go first.
Health is always an issue but again I have a great team and currently added an acupuncturist to it. He is hopefully going to be able to help with a metabolic problem I have had for what seems an eternity. I am hopeful.
The cue of the week for Six Sentence Stories is up and it is STAR…
I am also grateful for good friends who threw a little shin dig this week. Low key, nice. Also were willing to fill in for me when I couldn’t be present at a big function this week. I work and hang with great people… that includes you guys out here in cyberspace. Thanks.
Turns out Joulie is even worse at the selfie than Skips was:
