Summer winding down...

and so am I...

I went on an AMD vacation. In other words, I checked out for awhile. I had no time to play until I got so frustrated that I pretty much abandoned Zelda. I'd turn her off at night and often didn't turn her back on for several days at a time.

Summer has been hectic. Auctions and rummage sales. Yard work and festivals and the list goes on and on. I am exhausted to say the least.

This summer has been fraught with quarrels and squabbles with my S.O. but hell, I think it's been that way since I moved here. Seems we hardly get one thing settled before another issue pops up. But I think (hope) we've finally reached a happy medium. She took the summer off and has kept me on the run and this old gal really felt the strain...too much togetherness! But she's back to work now and I have more time to myself.

This month will be busy, too. Great grandson's b-day party and the family picnic, And I am finally getting my cataracts removed. I have been struggling with my vision for a long time now and it will be good to see good again, I get one done on the 17th and the other on the 27th.

I want to go through all my Christmas stuff and get rid of most of it. I'll have a rummage sale towards the end of October. October will be a busy month, too. It will be time to put everything to bed for the winter...so soon....hard to believe.

But I'm looking forward to winter. Not that I like winter that much but I'll have a lot more free time and I have plans...

I found a site where I can have my stories and poetry made into books...I'm so excited. The cost is reasonable and they do a good job. My daughter had one made about her rescue dog so I know this place is legitimate. I plan on doing my poems first but I really want my manuscript put in book form. If I find anyone is interested, I will take orders and sell them.

I have a lot to learn about this site but my daughter can help me. So this winter will be busy for me and Zelda won't get much rest, that's for sure.

Speaking of winter...I have all my Christmas shopping almost done. This is the first year in a very long time that I'll have presents to wrap for my family. I started in the spring. I am on a tight budget but I found a lot of bargains at all the sales we've been to. I know Christmas isn't about presents, but it will feel good to watch my family open something just for them.

Anyway, I thought I'd check back in...kinda missed everyone. My evenings will be free now so hopefully I can be here more often.

Now I need some sleep. G'nite everyone.

Sounds like you're pretty well settled down. Good luck on your eye operation and congrats on getting Christmas out of the way.

I would like to know about your experience with the self publisher as the project develops.

Thanks Linda... It's good to be back although until the snow flies, it will still probably be in fits 'n starts...still a lot to do. I'm kinda in a time crunch right now,,,I have several grave saddles to make before the weather turns too cold to work in the garage. It's hard to do floral arrangements when my fingers turn to ice.

Yes HP...finally a lot of the stress is gone...relationship stress anyway. A couple more months of busyness tying up loose ends. But then the Holidays will be upon us...

That site for publishing books is blurb.com I've checked it out and it seems pretty easy but sometimes it isn't...or for me anyway. I'll have to abduct my daughter for a day to help me but that's ok, I don't get to spend near enough time with her. Who knows, I might fake it just to get her here....

Welcome back Softie! Missed while you were on your AMD vacation. I'm glad to see you and Susie have hit a happy medium. Yes, fall is almost here. Summer is still trying to hang on. I love fall, don't care for winter. Been doing work around the house here myself also getting it ready for the snowy season. I need to come up with a plan to keep snow off my driveway and my car (no garage folks) and it can all fall in the yard.

You're gonna have to let me know when those poems get published...I love your writings.

Good to see ya back.

Thanks Sugar... And it's still summer here. Not really hot unless you're working and I am. I've neglected my car all summer so today is the day and oh what a job it is! It's nearly 1 pm and I'm just having breakfast... not good for my diabetes but..shit happens...

I do have a garage for the first time in many years and I'm so grateful for it. One of the worst things about winter was having to clean the snow and ice off the car....especially the ice. I use to get just enough of it off to see to drive then take it to the carwash and it did a fantastic job. Since I would be driving it for a couple of hours, the doors never froze shut on me.

Ok....breakfast over...back to work...
