GUESS WHAT I BOUGHT MYSELF THIS MORNING
Stepping out with Pheebs this morning I looked up and saw a clear cold sky above studded with shimmering diamonds with one cluster of those diamonds forming the constellation Orion. That could only mean one thing. Skies were clear and we were in for some morning Sunshine. A real Spirit lifter for sure especially after recent weeks with so many gloomy cloud infested rainy days.
HEADING OUT OF THE PARK WE TURN EAST INTO GLORIOUS MORNING SUNSHINE
Under bright sunny skies Pheebs and I made our way up to Goderich. It was a cold wind coming in off the lake yet I felt a touch of warmth in the air, if that's possible. Lake Huron waters were choppy and forests were ablaze with color. Although I had my camera gear with me I simply enjoyed the scenery and never bothered with any photos. Rare for that to happen but occasionally it does.
CHOPPY LAKE HURON WATERS
Home again Kelly and I busied ourselves with re-installing the Motorhome's dinette table and tub chair. Amazingly enough things went well. Not always the case for me when it comes to things like that.
FOR US ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS WE DO WITH ALMOST EVERY RV IS TO TAKE OUT THE DINETTE AND USE THAT SPACE FOR COMFORTABLE SEATING
WE HAD TAKEN OUT THIS TUB CHAIR AS WELL AND REPLACED IT WITH A COMFY RECLINER
WE’VE HAD THIS COACH OVER FOUR YEARS AND I NEVER SLEPT IN THAT BED ONCE
Still dealing with bouts of dizziness if I look up or bend over too fast especially to the right. And an overall physical tiredness that may or may not be related. Despite that I was energized just enough by today’s slightly warm afternoon Sun to haul out a stepladder and clean some house windows. And we are coming down the home stretch with the Motorhome clean-up. The rig has an 8 o’clock appointment at the Bayfield Garage to have a few things checked out and repaired if necessary. Weather people are calling for a chance of rain and if that happens I’m not going to be be a happy camper. That means I’ll probably have to wash the whole darn Motorhome again when we get it home. Prospective buyers do not want to see a big dirty looking Motorhome.
ALTHOUGH I DIDN’T TAKE ANY AUTUMN FOLIAGE PHOTOS THIS MORNING I DID TAKE MY CAMERA FOR A WALK AROUND OUR YARD THIS AFTERNOON
GEEEEZZZZ DO I REALLY WANT TO WASH WINDOWS ON SUCH A NICE DAY
Ed Dddd over there in the Shout Box might be on to something alright. I may indeed need a little extra help through the Winter. Something I may talk over with my Nurse Practitioner at some point. I find as I am aging my mood swings are becoming more frequent and wider ranging. My increasing memory lapses really irritate and get me down some days.
HAVE YOU GUESSED WHAT I BOUGHT MYSELF YET??
THE WORD ‘LAMP’ COULD BE A TIP
CAN YOU TELL I AM RATHER FASCINATED BY MY NEW ‘LAVA LAMP’
OH AND WHERE DID I GET MY LAVA LAMP?? WALMART OF COURSE
Kelly’s on-line RV alerts notified her of a nice little 2005 Chevy Class B today that we might have gone and had a look at if it hadn’t been all the way over in Eastern Ontario at Gananoque the other side of Kingston. Sure perked me up when she showed me the pictures of it. Well, that was my excitement for the day:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Harvey's grandfather clock suddenly stops working right one day, so he loads it into his van and takes it to a clock repair shop. In the shop is a little old man who insists he is Swiss, and has a heavy German accent. He asks Harvey, "Vat sims to be ze problem?" Harvey says, "I'm not sure, but it doesn't go 'tick-tocktick -tock' anymore. Now it just goes 'tick...tick...tick.'" The old man says, "Mmm-Hm!" and steps behind the counter, where he rummages around a bit. He emerges with a huge flashlight and walks over the grandfather clock. He turns the flashlight on, and shines it directly into the clocks face. Then he says in a menacing voice, "Ve haf vays of making you tock!"
The church service was under way and they passed the collection plate. When the preacher saw a $100.00 bill in the collection plate, he stopped the service and announced "who ever put the $100.00 bill in the plate please stand up". A gay man stood up and said "I did". The preacher told him "since you put that money in the plate I would like to let you pick out three hymns." Looking over the congregation the gay guy excitedly said, "well I'll take him and him and him."
A few simple blood tests would sure tell your NP a lot... as we age, our hormones tend to shut down and that leads to moodiness and loss of interest to our favorite things/activities and such. If it were me, I believe I would spend this winter really digging into why my moods shift widely, and also look at some memory enhancing supplements. I know one of the best can be had through the Alzheimer dot org site. NOT SAYING you have Alzheimer's but they have a fantastic supplement that really does help the memory part of our lives. Worth doing some research on the herb. Who knows... by next year, you both may be ready for the SW. Perhaps you should look at this winter as time for a BREAK. Moving every 5 to 6 months gets old, even if it is RVing. Keep your chin up and take this break and really explore some healthier options that was available.ReplyDelete
Thought at first you bought a solar filter for your camera, Al! Glad to see lava lamps making a comeback.ReplyDelete
The sunshine sure was welcomed and I enjoyed the day outside as well. Nice to get your coach all cleaned up and ready yo goto a new home. The rv for some new buyers. Good luck with your newer smaller one.ReplyDelete
Guess what I'll be looking for the next time I am at Walmart??? LOLReplyDelete
Lava lamps are great for meditation - and you don't even have to be stoned :-))) Love the shadows among the pretty leaves. The Big E looks brand new with all her original innards returned. I can't remember the last time we washed a window!ReplyDelete
I have been following you for quite a while, and this is my first comment.ReplyDelete
We are close to the same age and I just got my first lava lamp a few weeks ago. Mine is a mermaid, with blues and greens and is very nice accompanied by all kinds of music. :o)
SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is no joke. You may be affected by the lack of light in the winter. That is why my wife is droopy, exhausted and depressed feeling on rainy gray days here in Oregon. Talk with your Doc/NP about a SSRI (serotonin reuptake inhibitor) prescription. Lexapro (generic Escitalopram) at a small dose of 10 mg a day does it for her. Keeps her on an even keel.ReplyDelete
