  • My hip joint just floated out of its socket. Gah...hate it when does that.

    That sounds terrible. Are you able to...make it go back right?

    I can pop it back in on my balance ball and it only happens when I do too much. Deep cleaning and sorting books was fine until I stopped moving.
    Hulled and prepped a gallon of fresh strawberries and got chores done ahead of time. Tomorrow read...Yeah!
    The rain followed me home...

    Realized long after I had liked your post that you might not find rain desirable. If so, I retract. We get little rain here, so, I always welcome it. : )

    I actually love rain especially if I'm home and don't have to drive in it. Perfect reading weather.

    Another rain fan here! :)
    Irony is crabbing about people who do nothing but crab about absolutely eveything, other people included.

    I’m guilty of crabbing about those people lol. Negative people drive me nuts.

    ROFL. Great observation, @Darkkin! :) Hope you're well!

    PS: I imagine they are infested with crabs...
    Our pipsqueak cardinal is flying. He was on the patio table with his mama this afternoon. A small thing, but this little fellow matters.

    I have a set of Doctor Who magnets that I arrange into the first constellation I spot each night when I let the dogs out.

    That is imaginative. What is your favorite, Darkkin? Mine is Scorpius. It is at the southern horizon in the Summer as I am 44 degrees north. But with good conditions I can see the star clusters, M4 and M7, the Butterfly Cluster and the Ptolemy Cluster.

    I've always had a fondness for Cassiopeia.
    Went out on a limb and tried something...and it wasn't dreadful. Rudimentary yes, dreadful no.

    Now I am of course curious! :)

    I was messing around with some watercolours last night.

    Callistemon
    Oh, very nice! :) Acrylics are much more forgiving because you can make mistakes and paint over, but watercolour is such a lovely medium...what did you paint?
    Bad function tonight, three books down and I'm still awake...feels like a bag of worms in my chest.

    Malted milk? Half a glass of red wine? Counting sheep?

    A technique that I found helpful for getting off to sleep is to think of a thing, then of a completely unrelated thing, then of a completely unrelated thing to that etc. Like: Toaster. Grass seed. Engine. Hypothalamus. Gutenberg press. Yo-yo. Wood fire. Small intestine. (etc etc)

    That works really well for me. And sometimes, trying to listen to a podcast down low on one earphone. Blah blah blah, especially if it's a difficult subject, then off to sleep I would drift... ;)

    Nothing worse than worms in the chest. I dont know what that is, but it sounds terrible. You have heart problems, right. That's very sad. Here's hoping you feel better. And find a way to alleviate this effectively.
    Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you. -(Borrowed from a library sign.)

    Yeah, that's a good one, @Darkkin! Which is why it's informative to look at how people treat wait staff, checkout operators, taxi drivers, children, etc. Sinatra apparently was an absolute toad to hotel staff...

    Another one I like - this was from a school canteen - "No manners, no service."

    I think I saw on a docu, once. Sinatra would wear a new pair of underwear everyday, get back to his hotel and take it throw it at a lackey, he had a guy that would pick up his dirty underwear.

    Yeah he reportedly treated people very badly. Known for slappin around people. Associated with la cosa nostra. All kinds of shady stuff. Still dont know how sammy REALLY lost his eye. Mafia stuff.
