What between getting sleep in two hour bursts (all I can manage with the cpap, which I put on and took off three times last night), donating blood on Friday, and somewhat inadequate levels of exercising, Physio Luce is telling me that my flex is good but my strength sucks. He totally bought that sleep deprivation has slowed me down… and loaded me up with more exercises. Ainsi soit-il.
Today I will be adjusting the moisture content and seating of the mask on the cpap.
Dishwasher is running, sun is shining, Eddie is feeling much better. He needs a special diet so we are attempting to feed the cats separately and it’s kinda sorta working. His thyroid is wonky but there are meds for that. He is SUCH a good kitty. He despises being pilled so much that when Jeff puts the pill in front of him, he consumes it rather than go through the gharstly struggle. He was also a sweetheart the last time I trimmed his nails. (Kitties shouldn’t click on floors).
I am assembling yet another project in Scrivener – Broad Hints. It will be selected songs, poems, essays (no homilies though, that’s another project), humour, blog posts, recipes and miscellaneous writings (like band names, movie and concert reviews). I have a ton of stuff in there already and it’s going to be book sized by the time I’m done. At the following URL (ya hafta scroll down) there’s my third fave pic of my grandpa: He’s a real cowboy with real First Nations…. http://allegrasloman.com/indexold.php?showall=1&month=9&year=2004
Holy crap! some twin engined plane just went over the house at about 500 feet. I hate when they do that.
Church yesterday was great, excepting that the split pea and ham soup I took for the meal afterwards overturned in the car trunk. Fortunately I’d taped the lid on and it was still so cold that only the condensation from the defrosting came off it, plus I put the crockpot in a large garbage bag, so there was some leakage but not the HOLY FUCK disaster I thought it was when I leapt out of the car to investigate the gharstly noise. I did the aesthetics and screwed it up, but Rob rescued me by leaping up and getting a taper for the service leader (Donna). I don’t think aesthetically it was too bad. We didn’t sing enough and there was a congregational discussion afterwards grump grump. I’ve had to lower my pledge because, HEY no INCOME! which cheeses me off, but other delights await, including my return to delivering homilies! And getting to sing the compost song first service in 2014, more or less hopefully.
I am going to go back to chores now.
We’re number one! In pipeline accidents.
