MageB ⋅ 79

Journaling since 1974. I'm an artist, book lady, and quilter living at the beach with a car guy. We wait out the pandemic in our little condo above the beach. Having been homeless in the 70's, the car guy and I truly appreciate where we are today.

ORTS FOR THE BLOG in Postcards 4

• The San Diego Maritime Museum reopened yesterday. George thought that marching around on the old wooden decks would be hard on our joints, so we didn’t go. I am always inspired by the i...

SHOWERS in Postcards 4

Yes, I am in the pool twice a week now. It’s as if age, arthritis, and pain aren’t hovering under my skin when I am in the water. I got up in the middle of Biden’s speech last night, and it ...

DISNEY WONDER in Postcards 4

PERFECTION in Postcards 4

We got an email from the Y telling us the pool would be open and to make an appointment. He didn’t do it right away, so we ended up in the shallow end. It was perfect. For 45 minutes I did...

AFTER in Postcards 4

Tidy, much more so now. Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements. My desk is a bit more of a mess with loose papers here and there topped by m...

GO TO in Postcards 4

There’s a chill breeze blowing up from the beach. Breakfast was cereal, and lunch was childish…a peanut butter sandwich. I revel in the normalcy of it all. Just to make life even kinder, the...

WITH FOGS in Postcards 4

I struggle with Wordpress. It doesn’t want to publish the way I want it to, and some days it doesn’t want to publish at all. There are now two posts that don’t show up at all. I must tell you...

NO MEMORY in Postcards 4

I took a two hour nap this afternoon. I must have needed it. George says I have chemo brain, but I think it worse. Can’t remember things I used to do with ease….like delete old images from my...

BEFORE AND AFTER in Postcards 4

Lots of before and after pictures to be taken. The bedroom no longer looks like this, nor does the living room or garage. All the leftovers from my long hospital stay are stowed. G spent most...


At one PM last night. I got up to go to the toilet. Yes, I tripped over the rug. And yes, trip altered our whole night and day. I fell onto the toilet. Water rushed out and flooded the bath...

WINDOWS 10 in Postcards 4

This semi new program leaves me wanting to pull my hair out. New to me anyway. G has an older version of Windows 10, and it doesn’t seem to have the quirks mine does. • I typed a nice lette...


The Sun has finally come out. I’ve talked with Timothy, and George is well into episode 4 of “The last Kingdom.” Things are fractionally too quiet for me, but who am I to complain. Timot...
