Running quite late, tonight, but there’s still half a pot of English Breakfast tea and some rice crackers. if it’s not too late in your day, the apples are in the bowl on top of the fridge.
The weather has been variable, but we finally got our first winter storm. Semis going off the highway, traffic accidents, sirens and emergency vehicles. ::sigh:: We are pretty much out of that, however, since the other of us caught a chest cold that keeps getting worse. (Finally got some Nyquil, this evening. Coughing from the bedroom at the other end of the house is quieter and more infrequent…finally!) i caught a cold, also, but it has not lasted as long. Still trying to catch up on housework and laundry. Also, we now have running water for the shower for the time being, and the toilet has completely new innards. Yesterday I took my first shower since last Saturday.
I have been trying to catch up on sleep. The bruising has eased a lot after my fall downstairs, end of September. The air quality has still been iffy, but I haven’t had to use the nebulizer for a couple days, now.
On Tuesday, we attended a funeral visitation. The husband of a couple who have been neighbors since the late seventies died on the fourth of bone cancer. A long and gradually debilitating progression. Recalled to mind my mother’s funeral in November of 2016. Wrote a poem in remembrance.
My poem-a-day project has been going well. I have written some extra poems, in case more unfortunate events eat up my writing time as the month progresses. I am having much fun trying out new Japanese poetic forms that I have been learning about on the Writer’s Digest website. Quite happy that I added that structure to the poem-a-day process, this time around.
It’s almost one in the morning, so I had better close this and get some sleep. My Artist’s Way class starts at ten o’clock, and I have much to accomplish before then.
Thanks for stopping in. I look forward to visiting more over the course of the weekend.
P.S, Natalie the Explorer, our host for Weekend Coffee Share, has written another interesting blog post. That and the inLinkz (?) app can be found here. “Fall Cycling and Hiking.”
Too tired to proofread, tonight. Maybe tomorrow, though. ::sigh::
