one.......good thing

I see people write on their posts...it was a good day or had a good day I can't wait till that's me, but I can't pretend all is good when its NOT, that's just not me...If I'm having a bad day it is a bad day---and vice-versa of course..Time flies when you are relaxing with a cup of coffee in the mornings...I have some time to kill before I head off into my day.  Does it seem that there is no caffeine in coffee anymore? Not long ago mom and I did something we never do...went out for breakfast!! So we had Diner coffee...within minutes I had a caffeine high going..I wonder what coffee they are using, I could use a punch in the arm right about now...

I am "scheduled" to be at the hospital today we really hope this is the day they tell us we can make arrangements for him to be transferred..see its not a treatment problem, its an insurance thing at this juncture...Last week we toured several facilities and today I'm supposed to stop by another one...trust me it is no fun what so ever, but it has to be done...I hope soon this will all be a distant nightmare.  

My CO sister is here now...well she is at my other sister's house upstate and staying with Mom...she came down and spent the weekend here with me and she did the hospital visiting to give me a break which I dearly clearly needed...and my friend came by last night and we viewed  episodes of Breaking Bad, and watched our favorite characters have a worse day than we could ever have...wee bits of unreality help keep the mind off ones own reality..

As soon as possible I am taking my camping vacation...the weather is changing, we had a gorgeous weekend..and fall is sneaking in quietly. 

I just remarked I wanted to get a table for my sewing machine...because its so heavy I can't manage getting it in and out of the closet and setting it up to mend a broken seam its way too much trouble...if I had it in a cabinet I would be more apt to try and use it..I went to the recycle center to get rid of my plastic....and there was one sitting there in the dead end furniture pile....
signs all over say -no scavenging-!! But I asked the attendant anyway she said once a guy took an old tv from there his house burned down that night he sued the city for $300,000.00 But she said just don't let me me SEE you take it...so I didnt----- I pulled my van across the view between me and her and I dragged it aboard!

Needs a good clean up and refinish but free is good eh??


so one good thing can lead to another ..........right?

    1. Hi Grace! Thanks for your encouraging words...Im working on yet another weak cup of coffee even tho I put in 2 scoops!! It may be a while before I get the table up and running but it will be a fun project it is make of real wood not pressed stuff so a new finish should do the trick!!

  3. Sounds like you can at least SEE the end of the tunnel. Glad your sis and friend are there for some support. That's funny about the landfill. Good for the attendant, using her common sense, so many people don't or won't. The table should be perfect.

    1. I know I do see why...but instead of doing it that way I'd do the opposite...the City could have a sign .... everyone who enters this property is agreeing we are not liable for any yada yada.... so much of the stuff would find a new home and not go to the landfill.

  4. Hope tomorrow brings the news you need to hear. It sure is time. At least you had some help this weekend,

    I really hope you get that camping trip in soon, very soon. It will fix you right up.

    Now that sewing table looks pretty good for free and I have seen some of your remakes and they are great.Have fun with it. I could kick myself for not buying the cheapo sewing machine at Big Lot's now they have closed this store and I am not driving to the other side of town to find out they don't have them. This sewing by hand is a pain in the neck.

  5. I think you're right. Most days, like our lives, are not all good or all bad. Take joy in the good parts.
