First Thoughts

… slept till 5:15 AM… that is sleeping in for me… only two beers last night… beer seems to be the way to go for alcohol in the house… don’t usually over consume beer… feel pretty good this AM…

… we finished Maid last night which had a pretty satisfying ending… our heroine overcame all her trials and wound up in a writers program in Montana with sole custody of her daughter… cue the credits and tears of relief at the end… H talks about the abuse so many women have to endure… my immediate thought was that H never had to endure abuse but i have… not to the point of needing to seek shelter, but decades of emotional abuse from D… men can be abused too… i eventually got to a place where i knew it wasn’t me, but D, and could put it at arm’s length most of the time… D has passed away and my world is better without their presence in it…

… the anniversary celebration fizzled a little last evening… H tired… she hasn’t been sleeping well…

… i bought some cooking pumpkin yesterday and am planning on making roast pumpkin soup… today maybe…

… Fiona has spay surgery this week… it’s hard to think of her being cut into and parts removed, but it is better for her health in the long run if she will never have puppies… there can be complications in female dogs with unused reproductive capability… S had that happen with his dog Charlotte…

… my plans for the day are to do some work in the garden, sort out the wrong car rack crossbars (they turned out to be too short)… take the beach rose jam over to S and S… maybe see PB’s show at Hudson Beach Glass… family zoom meeting…

… i do some internet searching on the roof rack system and am beginning to realize that we may have gone down the wrong path altogether in an effort to keep the basket we already have useable… it’s a path that works, but not the most straight forward one… in any case, all that is needed is longer cross bars and then the system should work…
