I’ve been busy again today, folks. I went to the dr this morning to go over my labwork, and he changed my medication for diabetes. He took me off of insulin altogether. That’s a good thing, and it’s caused, I guess, by my weight loss. I am happy about that. My bp was 100/60, and I am otherwise very healthy.
When I got home I had an electrician come and give me an estimate on my 220V outlet for my dryer, and also a price on fixing the outlets in my bedroom. I think I’m going to try to go with a gas dryer, but he said he could fix the bedroom outlets. My handyman replaced the one old outlet with a new one, but it didn’t make any difference, none of them work. The electrician said it would not be a big deal, and also that he could put a pull chain on the bathroom light over my mirror that is perpetually on, and has no switch, lol I just twist the bulb on and off to use it.
I started painting the desk my sister and her hubby gave me. I got about a third of it painted. I had time to do more, but it’s a lot of leaning over and bending and my back, from the accident, can only take so much. It’s a small desk. It will be done in a few days. Then I’ll be able to start working over there, making jewelry. Maybe write there too. It’s in a nice sunny corner of the living room.
I put up the two prints that my brother-in-law put the hanging wire on. One is of New London harbor where I kept my boat for 25 years. The other is of Menemsha harbor in Martha’s Vineyard, one of my favorite places on earth. All of my artwork is now up on the walls, and I just love seeing it all. I think having your stuff up on the walls makes it feel so much more like home.
A friend called and asked for a ride to the library to pick some stuff up. It’s about a mile away. She’d just gotten home from work, riding her bike, and ended up riding through a torrential downpour that lasted for about 10 minutes.
I talked to a friend in Montana for almost 2 hours in the late afternoon! Then made a good dinner, and sat down on the couch and fell asleep, lol
I told my son that I want to facetime him tomorrow. I need to see his smiling face. I miss that kid so much. Christmas will be hard this year, for both of us. Glad my sister is here. I wish my son had family there.
Life is rich, and full. Not perfect, by a long shot, but rich and full. Which makes it perfect.
Love and light, all.What
