Thanks! in February 2016

Thank you all for all the suggests you have offered! Now I am looking at the many things I will be thinking about! 🤔🤔😁


Right now the temperature is 50 degrees so if I go out, according to Fred, I should be wearing gloves. I am not planning to go out except to my mailbox. There is no sunshine and the sky is grey ...


I am incredibly hungry even though I had steel-cut oatmeal from the Instant Pot and its timer at 7:30 this morning. That is usually enough to keep my stomach full for a couple of hours but not th...


I went to bed around 11 PM last night and was wide awake at 3 :15 this morning. And even though I had eaten mushroom risotto before I went to bed, I was hungry and got up and watched “Scandals” a...


This evening I made a risotto with mushrooms in the Instant Pot. It was amazingly good. I ate two portions and put four in the freezer. I can’t remember if Jake likes mushrooms or not. If he does...


I am feeling much MUCH better today. Much to my surprise, I slept well last night even though I spent a large part of yesterday sleeping during the day, too. You know how when you pick up a pre...


I WAS JUST NOT FEELING WELL THIS MORNING SO AFTER I GOT UP AND HAD STEEL-CUT OATMEAL FOR BREAKFAST–BECAUSE IT WAS THERE HAVING THE INSTANT POT TURN ITSELF ON EARLY THIS MORNING BEFORE I GOT UP–I ...


I don’t know if I will actually get any sleep tonight since I have spent so much of the day in bed sleeping! After I had the dry toast and a cup of tea, I went back to bed yet again. I was woken ...


I haven’t written an entry today I have just realized! Not that I have to write one every day, but usually I have something to say! The latest update for my ex is that he has now been moved to a ...


Sunday at 8:40 and I am still in my pajamas. I LOVE being retired! I fell asleep about 11-ish and woke at 6 AM so a good seven hours which the usual time I sleep. I really don’t have any plans fo...


I have stopped doing thankfulnesses regularly and so, on a day I am not feeling too good about myself, it turns out to be Thankfulness Day! I am thankful that I have lived as long as I have. Ther...


You remember the saga of why I don’t have a credit card right now, right? Well, I was looking for something to read on my Kindle this morning and right there in the middle of the list of books wa...


I woke up this morning feeling really great probably because I slept so well. I fell asleep just after the light by my bedroom door{ which is on a timer} shut itself off which means it was 11 PM....


I am still happy to see my little Smart car parked outside. Tomorrow I need to get some gas in the car and then go to Staples and see what is happening to my Great Big Pressure Cooking Book. Bu...


I am sitting here waiting for my little Smart car to come home! The guy I talked to yesterday said it will probably be this morning rather than this afternoon so I hope he knows what he is talkin...


And MB is Mercedes-Benz! My little Smart car will be home tomorrow and the back is fixed and the State Inspection is done. All I have to pay is–are you ready for this?– $13.60 and that is for th...

February 24. 2016. Wow! in February 2016

A guy just came to pick up my car to have the back deck fixed and has left me a HUGE Mercedes! Looks as if it will be fun to drive! Anyway, apparently I will get a call letting me know how long t...


You wanna guess what I found this morning? Yes, you are right, my missing debit card! One of the things I learned from living with Fred when he was so afraid of falling was not to leave shoes an...


The day before yesterday {I think–it might have been yesterday!} I bought groceries and paid for them with my debit card. I have been somewhat careless about putting my card back in the place I k...


It is ridiculous how I feel I must write every day even though my life is so boring that I am boring myself! Total change of subject here. I have been reading my pressure cooker cookbooks because...


Here it is almost eleven o’clock and I am only just out of my pajamas and into day clothes! Again, I was woken by my phone singing its little “Time to get meds” music at eight AM even though I wa...


I finally got out today to get groceries. I walked out of my apartment door, took three steps and went back in again. I had forgotten not only my cane but my list and the bag-on-wheels I use to b...


I was in bed by 10 PM and was asleep before 11 PM last night. {I know this because there is a light right by the door in my bedroom which comes on at 6 PM and goes out at 11 PM and I didn’t see i...


I went to bed early last night which means my eyes opened at 4:30 this morning. Then I discovered I had no milk so although I can drink coffee without milk, I decided I didn’t want to. And I do n...


10:40 AM So I called the Smart car place and talked to the guy who sold the car to me. I explained what the was happening with the back of the car, His answer? “I have never heard of that happeni...
