This is me at Stowe Lake in Golden Gate Park - San Francisco
Yes, the water really is that color
For some reason I drug out some very old clothes “my hippie duds” and put them on today. Looking at old stuff from my past must have inspired me. As some of you know, I’m going through possessions getting ready to move. I’m finding it hard to get rid of some things, but I knew I would.
It’s not so much about material possessions as the fact that I like to keep busy with some creative project. I feel I’m stretching my mind when I create something, so much more so than sitting in front of the TV. I’m always up for learning something new, or practicing what I have learned. Hopefully, I’ll be this way for a long while yet, but it all takes up space because I can’t see getting rid of things that I may use at a later date, especially now since I’m living on a fixed income.
I’m still working in the sewing room and of course, now my mind is going all kinds of places instead of where it ought to be going, which is clearing out bits and pieces and thinking about my NaNo project. I’ve been working on that in the evenings and have added about 16,000 words in the last three days. I seem to have no problem in that area and am thankful for that.
The weather here is still cooperating and it’s not too cold yet, but we have cooler days coming by the end of the week. The birds are using the “pool” again, so we have to refill that birdbath several times a day. They have so much fun splashing all the water out. I even saw some yesterday splashing around in the gutter across the street.
My youngest cat, Koki, is into everything I drag out thinking it’s so much fun to grab stuff and run through the house with it. One little cat can make a lot of noise. She’s my shadow and follows me everywhere. The other two stay downstairs and sleep a lot.
We’re still dosing Comet, the oldest one, with meds for her heart and she gets a water pill daily. She’s never a happy camper about that and hides under the bed to get away from us. I’m not sure how I’m going to handle this when the end of December gets here and my husband makes a trip to CA. I’d like to go along, but I can’t have my neighbor trying to give this wild cat her meds twice a day.
Other than that, there isn’t much going on in my life at present.
