So excited. Found an awesome cast iron grittle to put on my BBQ. I was going to get a whole table but found this instead. It weighs a tonne but I wanted something to put my big Dutch oven on that would hold the charcoal in place on the top and the bottom of the pot. I love to BBQ and it is a hobby I love. I am always collecting BBQ and BBQ…[Read more]
Good morning from rainy Nova Scotia. Having the morning java and a little peace before the household wakes up. It is now my favourite time of day. Actually it always was my favourite I just forgot for a few decades. Haha. Have a lovely weekend friends.
Well I went and broke my house again! I turned on a faucet and then heard what sounded like an indoor water feature coming down the inside of the walls. Now I am the absolute worst person to be home during these kind of moments. Haha. I called my partner at work “How do I shut the water off”! Ok got that sorted. Then I went immediately to the…[Read more]
What to do with this new day? I was feeding the pups this am and thinking I always thought of that as a chore. It is not feeling like a chore anymore just a normal morning in a normal household. Always being hung over made it a chore.
I have to start considering what next year will look like at school. I am considering going back 50% but…[Read more]
A new fresh Spring day in the Maritimes. What shall I do today? I am happy to have the choice to decide what to do because I am not sick as a dog. I will get the pups on the trail for sure. Waverly’s leg is healing nicely now finally. She didn’t like it when I left her behind the last two weeks because she wasn’t healed. Today we can go play.…[Read more]
French horn. Only been playing 18 months, but we have this wonderful open access, but aspiring to the best standards we can, orchestra here, so even as such a beginner, I get to play wonderful music and with many excellent players. And because our conductor is such a charismatic and amazing man, he gets top professionals to play with us as part of…[Read more]
oxoxoxox Ohhh thanks heaps!!! I’ll take all of the hugs I can get! I’ve been watching Queer Eye on Netflix ever since @Mrs. D recommended it, and boy has it been sweet and healing. I just envy them when they do all those hugs, lol. I want one from the Fab 5 as well!!! 🙂
The bull dog I have been babysitting is going home today. He is sweet but very, very noisy! He is also very demanding. He keeps stealing my chair. Haha. It’s been fun but time for you to go home mister! My Golden was put on anti- anxiety meds yesterday. Oh dear. She is healing but has a deep muscle infection that will take a long time on a…[Read more]
@gilligan5323 I would love a dog too but I sleep in on the weekends because of my thyroid and then gone at work. I don’t want to leave a doggy by themselves that much. My Mom has two and so I go get my fill of love from them whenever possible. Hope Waverly gets to feeling better. xoxox
Off to the vet this am with my Golden. She had a biopsy done and has been living with chronic deep muscle infection for two years and they have only just discovered the problem. My poor pup. Long term antibiotics for her. At least they finally figured it out.
I guess I finally figured me out too. Long term chronic alcohol abuse. No…[Read more]
I just got home from a second trip to town. I really like the feeling of getting in my car and going whenever I like. Usually I would have had a few beer in me by 4pm and going to town was not an option. Feels like freedom.
oxxooxxo Good morning!! Uhh I like that mood tracker!! You’re absolutely right, every bit of information can help. Sometimes when I feel low I am really just hungry or tired…those are two big ones. But I forget….and then feel all pissed off/sad/angry/scared/lonely…well one good meal and 8 hours of sleep….voila….all is well. I wish…[Read more]
Hey @Gilligan there’s a book titled- Alcohol in A Nutshell, that you can download for free, that describes how cravings are created and how to banish them for good. I just read it and found it incredibly helpful.
Another day. Thank you so much for the comments yesterday. It is really encouraging to have help with all of this. I am so fortunate in life. I think Inwill stop sweating the small stuff and just enjoy being.
Went out for sushi Saturday night and had a blast. No booze involved by anyone. Had the parents over for turkey yesterday (Sun).…[Read more]
