I said 51 degrees this morning and tomorrow rain. It is a quiet morning even though my ears are ringing plus I hear active morning sounds of cups and stirring, a fan blowing air.
We feed a black cat outside and when he gets in a mood he terrorizes the other cats or kills someone. I do not like that so I stop feeding him. I will yell at him and let him know I do not approve. But he is a Tom Cat and I think he could care less. Anyway all the outside cats pay.
Yesterday I had tamales with sour cream and cheese. Within the half hour after eating the two tamales I lost it all from two different direction. That was a miserable 30 minutes. I was fine after the 30 minutes of hell.
Today we concluded it was not the tamales or cheese but the sour cream that did me in.
I stopped by my sisters blog and she is posting how she feels and that is good because she did lose a good friend and husband.
Posting does wonders to the mind and makes life a bit more tolerable after such an incredible loss.
I think od the people I love and care about and think to myself, what would it be like. Not pleasant for sure.
I do not have to crawl under my home anymore or walk a 3/4 of a mile across the dam to get to work in 100 and -5 below to get to work or drive 75 miles to work in any weather or drive thought dust. mud and slosh. Or praying to god that my grip on the steering wheel will keep me on the black ice and polished snow.
I am old and I just remember and type what comes to mind. I did check to see if we had water pressure. It is warm in our home. There is music quietly giving us some background while the electricity travels in the walls.
It is pleasant here in Western Kentucky this morning. It is a cloudy or a foggy morning or it could be overcast as in a Autumn Day. I have no clue maybe I could look online and someone could tell me. Anyway it is nice looking and cool, cold if I had to stay out for a while.
I am warm indoors, I pay a fee/tax for that warmth. Maybe someone could pave the road in front of my home (I paid a tax for that).
Congress does not want to provide any services anymore. Maybe the Chinese peddler with his oxcart could repave the road in front of my home.
We came home from a Military Memorial at Camp Nelson in Kentucky last night and there was a package on our door. It was a Guitar tuner we ordered last week. After looking at it I decided to put the battery into the tuner. It was a dime type battery and I looked at the guitar tuner to see where it went. I saw where it went and I realized I needed a magnifying glass, a jewelers set of Phillips screwdrivers and a roll of duck tape to put it in (I did not know I needed the duck tape at the time,but believe me you will need it).
I took the back off the tuner by removing the Phillips black screw. I dropped the screw and it bounced into the rug and I blurted out an obscenity.
After an over night sleep wondering how to find the screw in the carpet I decided to use our lint roller but I did not have a lint roller so the roll of duct tape did the job this morning with the magnifying glass to inspect the lint on the duct tape.
The easiest way to do it is take it to a jeweler.
I feel good this morning as the flesh in my mouth is getting close to what it should be. The only problem I have is finding enough protein to sustain this body. I have eaten plenty of food and I did gather the protein from it but I felt weak yesterday when I went shopping for mom and doing some chores.
I drink Ensure Plus in the morning now and whatever mom fixes later on in the day.
I changed the time back from 7:00 am to 6:00 am this morning; I was supposed to do it last night but I never thought of it until this morning when mom's alarm went off and I asked mom why the alarm and she said, "I had to change the time back last night."
This morning out on the front stoop it was 24 degrees and out back on the deck it was 29 degrees; I had noticed the temperature when I went to clean something in the sink and I glanced at the outside temperature and it was 29 degrees on the deck. I said, "What!" to myself and promptly went to the front thermometer and read it.
Good Morning, It is 32 degrees up front on the stoop and 35 degrees out on the deck. I feel better today even though my lower lip and gum feel raw but look good. I looked even though I did not want to.
