Goodbye for now, pond – Last winter a blue heron fished at my pond eating sushi much of the winter. This year I put a piece of link fence in the middle part so he (or she) couldn’t walk in or fish from the sides. Some people completely cover their pond but I prefer to allow the wildlife to get a drink. It doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would and I’m hoping it works.
Substitutions – This past week I developed a sore just under my lip. Dr. Google thought it might be leprosy but I persevered and determined that I wouldn’t die from it. The dang thing hurt. I hate buying expensive medication for a once and done thing so I looked at my stock for something soothing with a painkiller. I found a new tube of Preparation H. Yep, used it!
Disappointments – The beloved husband and I have been looking to downsize for about five years now. As time passes, it becomes clearer to me that the work involved in our property is beyond what I want to do (even though I love my pond and porch). As arthritis comes to visit along with its cousins “aches and pains” my vision of perfection has modified. There is one area nearby I would love to move to and I did a “drive-by” only to find a property for sale. It’s next to a wooded area and checks off a lot of boxes for us. I pulled it up on-line only to find out that a sale is pending. A day late and a dollar short. I have to believe the perfect house is out there waiting for us. Hopefully we will still be alive and kicking.
Hello Chestnut Praline lovers! – Although a Starbucks fan, I don’t like most of their fancy drinks. I’m not a fan of caramel (in coffee) or the super sweet drinks they do. There are two that I love. One is S’mores latte (sadly that season is over) and the other is chestnut praline latte (a winter holiday drink). Thursday starts the winter holiday season. Yay!
Time change – There are lovers and haters but here is something to laugh at.
So how was your week?
