Daily Happenings: 5/24 – 5/30

June 1, 2015

Dear Blog Reader,

What you see on my blog is a meager slice of my life.  Do not presume that you know who I am by what you find here.  As much as gets written down, much more happens that does not.  My journal blogs are mostly for me and the few people that truly want to know what I do on a daily basis.  This is my space, read or not as you please; just don’t lecture me on what I should or should not post.  I find writing cathartic and so do a lot of ranting  and whining, especially in these Daily Happenings posts.

Warning:  rants by definition are not based on logic.  Writing down my rants helps me to clean out the ol’ brain pan so that I can find a solution to whatever is bothering me at the moment. Yes I have friends I could lay this stuff on instead, but maybe I don’t want to clutter up their brain pan or bother them when they have their own issues.

Spiritually, I’m still trying to find a steady rhythm on my daily devotional (DD) practice. Right now I do a little something as it strikes me, no formal ritual.  Occasionally been doing short meditations and I always end the day with thanks in front of my shrines.  Prayers, as always, before bed unless I’m ill.

5/24:  Had an emotional discussion with Hubby.  Only time will tell if it helps.  He did tell me that even though we are not very compatible, he wouldn’t have it any other way.  Made him blueberry muffins then we took the mini-drive to Home Depot to get more tile.  Stopped at Walmart for shoe laces and ended up doing a little bit of grocery shopping.  Home where I laid out tile for Hubby and then he cut.  Had dinner before he set those tiles…muttering and cussing about whose brainy idea was it to have a cubby hole in the platform.  Graduation card made.  Tiles set…he even plans to fix one of the tiles in the bathroom.

5/25:  Hubby didn’t come to bed until after 3am.  As a family, we went to the Veteran’s Memorial at the local cemetery and poured out a hard cider libation, then wandered around the heavily treed cemetery, especially the older parts, picking up trash. Watched “Book of Life” with the boychild.  A great movie for today as one of the central themes is what is remembered lives.  Fajitas for dinner.  Boychild to bed early…he went from fine and joking to claiming a headache (after we started discussing headaches) in a matter of minutes.  Wasn’t sure to believe if it was real or a bid for attention…Hubby believed the latter and sent him to bed.  I will say he went right to sleep.  Hubby spilled the grout powder…may not have enough now.  He’s pretty pissed.  Workshop is covered in gray dust… Hubby grouting, me wiping…but only a little ’cause it didn’t take long for my shoulders to say NO!  Jerks.  There was a little more than enough grout, thankfully.

5/26:  Rough night…woke up 3:45am and had a hard time getting back to sleep due to brain gerbil and hot flashes which have ramped back up of late.  Wiped down part of the tile before I had to stop.  I just can’t do any more…hopefully there will be few books to put away on the upper shelves.  Work.  Helped Hubby make French Onion Salisbury steak for dinner.  Got word that the devotional postcard I sent arrived safely and had as much meaning as I suspected it did.  Confirmation is always nice.  DWTS 10th anniversary episode.  Feeling a bit blue tonight.

5/27:  Slept better.  Looking for distractions from being blue.  I so hope it is sunny this weekend.  Crafting.  Laundry.  Made some golden milk…which is like chai minus the tea + turmeric…I even made enough so that the boychild could have some later.  Stitching.  Errands.  Work, complete with child drama.  Back home to find the stove on the tiled platform.  Tired.

5/28:  Finally returning to writing my Hestia story of which only the introduction has been written.  This is a long one.  Probably the longest story I’ve written.  1500 words and I’ve barely begun the tale.  This one has been stewing for awhile but I’ve been reluctant and nervous to write it… Stitching…and composing the next chapter in my head.  Last day of after school club until next school year…this means 2 hours less in my paycheck.  However, the children’s library did tell me thank you.  He said my assistance was a definite game changer.  Laundry put away.  Craft night.  Tried rereading/revising some of what I wrote.  Nope.  I need to leave it alone even though I’m not happy with the second chapter.  Over 2000 words in an intro and two chapters..  Tired and blue…a recurring theme…couldn’t even give a reason why for either one of them.  Packed for Denver.

5/29:  Last day of school for the boychild and he is bummed.  He doesn’t want school to end.  Heck I think I’d like to continue for a while longer just for some sanity.  😛 His field day this morning wasn’t what I’d call field day, alas.  And it is too freaking cold up here to be standing around in a breezy park waiting for something interesting to happen.  Edge of tears all day today and not because of school…honestly I have no idea why but I’d like it to go away.  I think I’m packed for Denver. No promises.  We waited around for a call that never came so gave up and headed for Denver.  After dinner we took fairy house and  plants over to heartsister and her hubby. Visited for a while.  Life always seems…better and more manageable after spending time with them.

5/30:  Lazy morning. Warm sunny day.  I’ve sooooo need a day like this.  Graduation party for a dear friend’s daughter.  They liked their cards.  Hubby and I splurged and had a dinner out.  Rather tired this evening so just hanging out.
