Quiet –#WeekendCoffeeShare

If we were having coffee today, you would see how quiet it is here. It seems that the only sounds all day Saturday and thus far today, have been the pouring rain and the tires of an occasional car moving through the puddles. I don’t think it has stopped raining for even one minute for well over twenty-four hours. And that’s okay with me.

It’s hibernation time. After the short snow storm and the ice that following, people are hunkered down indoors. I think. It’s almost like everything stopped on Wednesday as we waited for the snow and now it’s taking a while for people to get out and about again.

On Saturday, I just stayed pretty close to bed. It was very cold in there. I had the heat on and the thermostat said it was 69 but it felt much colder so I bundled up in bed and slept then read. I ventured out into the living room for a little while and read some more but I ended back in the bedroom under the covers. I read more yesterday than I have in the last three months combined. I’m currently reading Nicholas Sparks newest book, Two By Two. I was lucky enough to grab it during Cyber Monday sales on Amazon last week. I don’t think I would be reading it otherwise.

I would also tell you that Solveig’s Advent Calendar on her blog has one of my new Christmas stories posted today. You might want to go take a look. I will, most likely reblog it here sometime this week but go take a look at it. I’ve written another new one, a short one, which I believe will be on another blog later in the coming days. I’ll let you know about that one, too. I’m hoping to write another new one this week. I’ve an idea for one but I haven’t sat down to actually write it out. We’ll see if I get to it.

What is up with you? Are you finished with any holiday shopping you might need to do? Will you be traveling for the holiday this year? What is going on with your weather where you are?

If we were having coffee, we would be bundling up. It’s 50, according to one of my weather apps but it feels so much colder than 50. The winter weather advisory for Monday/Tuesday has been modified to Sunday, with a chance that it will come in tonight. Ugh!

Tonight my daughter and I are supposed to get the boys out of the house for a few hours so their dad can set up their Christmas present. My ex and his wife sent them a huge TV for their bedroom and their dad is wall mounting it for them and setting up some bean bag chairs for them and then is planning on having hot chocolate and popcorn with a new movie when we arrive back home. He’s doing it tonight because the box is huge and there is no place to keep it hidden until Christmas so they will have an early Christmas gift. Hopefully the weather won’t interfere with that tonight.

Let’s see, what else can I tell you? Yesterday I had 198 views on this blog! It threw me for a loop because I usually get only less than 20, although I’ve been getting closer to 30-35 each day in the past couple of weeks. I came hope last night to check on the laptop. I have a program that gives me the IP address of the people looking at my blog and which post they viewed and how long they were on each post. It turns out that whoever was looking at my stuff was looking at the pictures of Mt. Hood and a few other scenic pictures I have posted in the past couple of weeks. I’m wondering if my pictures will end up on the internet someplace. They, whoever they is, also clicked on my Creative Commons license on my sidebar. Clearly an indication that they want to use my photos.

I’m going to try to write a few new Christmas memoir pieces for this month. I don’t get to do that enough and when I do, it feels really good to get that done! So I’m crossing my fingers that I will get to do that.

I had amazon credit (well, I still do) during Cyber Monday sales and I could not resist buying myself some Kindle books! I got four ebooks, all best sellers, for $15 when they are each normally about $13. So I am hoping to get to start one of them this weekend! By the way, I have recommended it previously but I will do it again. My new favorite Christmas story (well not really new but as about four years ago) that I like to re-read every Christmas is called O Little Town by Don Reid (formerly of the Statler Brothers). It’s a little story about a little town that gives the reader many warm feelings and a great deal to think about. I highly recommend it. I won’t start reading my copy yet. I’ll wait until closer to Christmas.

Well, I have to run and do a couple of errands up the hill. I was going to do them later but if the weather does what they say it will do, then I had better get up there before the road gets icy. Where I’m going it’s about 10 degrees colder than here so I should skedaddle!

Have a super week and I will be coming around to read coffee share posts this weekend. I just have to let my eyes rest a bit between reading posts because my sight is getting worse and worse. But, I will come around.

If we were having coffee this morning, we would definitely be some place warm. I’m actually heading for Starbucks when I finish this post. Let’s pretend we’re there and I can treat you because I have 5 rewards for free items saved up! Let’s boogie before it starts raining again!

We would talk about the short week. Well, it wasn’t short but the work part was. It was a good week. I got to see my grandson. He’s six months old now and he’s a ball of cuteness and movement. He’s sitting up and on Thursday, I got to see him start crawling. I will see him again next month for Christmas. I can’t wait. The drive up there was almost fine. I did get a little rain and a little traffic but the drive was still in the normal range, time-wise. The return was a little longer than usual but not horrible. I’ve learned to keep my phone display on with the Maps app turned on even though I know the way because it alerts me to traffic slowdowns and I can prepare to take an alternate route, which is what I did on the way home.

One of the things I am excited about is a story I wrote. It’s a story I posted a couple of times for my December collection of Christmas stories (one every day in December until the 25th). This year I will be contributing to Solveig‘s Christmas collection so I wrote something new, or rather a re-visioning of something old, by changing the point of view. I did this to get a new story but I chose to tell it from my dad’s point of view. I wanted to write something positive about him because what I’ve written about him has been so negative and he was not all bad. I want to make sure I don’t forget the good times, the good man, and the good father. It felt good to write it. I’ll reblog it here after Solveig posts it.

I have been upset about not being able to complete NaNoWriMo this year. I have had no time. By the time I get home each day, my mind has been fried. I actually think it has something to do with the two head injuries. They’ve made me tired and unable to focus. Then, of course, there was that little incident which turned out to be such a train wreck and continues to be each day as we move toward January 20th. That took up (and continues) a lot of mental energy and time. So no NaNoWriMo for me this year. I actually sat down and wrote at midnight on November 1 and got my quota of words for the first day and I have not been able to get back to it. So no way. I’m a little sad about that but I’m not going to punish myself. Things happen. Things happened. Somethings didn’t get to happen. Oh well, there is always next year.

Well, I’m alone again today. I have to get dressed and go pick up some free items. This time a package of light bulbs for my outdoor motion sensor light which actually needs both bulbs and now I get a package of six for free! And a set of brand new in the box and unopened set of vodka glasses (which I will gift at Christmas time). I think there’s something else at the same house that I am supposed to pick up but I forget. And after all of that, I might take myself to a $5 matinee. Might. Or maybe I will come back to the warm house and bundle up with a book, which is another thing that hasn’t happened all month long!

In any case, I would also like to hear what has been going on with you! I will also be reading blog posts today, at some point or other. Have you seen any movies you would recommend? I’m in a lull on streaming because I haven’t picked up anything I want to stream. I’m happy to get suggestions of movies or series that I can stream on Amazon, Netflix, or Hulu. Let me know!

I’m having tea today but there is coffee too, if you’d like. I’m experimenting with what I eat and drink as my stomach has been getting very upset so I’m trying to determine if it is too much coffee that is causing the discomfort. Mint tea is what I’m having. It’s my favorite tea. It reminds me of my mom and growing up. She always gave us mint tea to solve whatever ills we had. So today it’s mint tea.

The weather has turned cold here, cold and very windy which just makes it that much colder. I have an enclosed front porch and the wind has been so bad that it keeps blowing the door open and it slams into the living room window. I figured it is only a matter of time before the window breaks so I ended up having to lock the door so the wind doesn’t blow it open. The bad thing with that is that there’s no doorbell outside of the porch so if anyone wants in, they can’t get in to ring the doorbell on the front door. The good thing is that no one ever comes here unless they are trying to sell me something or convert me to their religion. So I guess it just stays locked until the wind dies down a bit.

I’m down but trying to keep myself focused on something positive. November is a bad month for me. Not only is it the time that our weather definitely changes, it is also so much darker out with shorter days, and it’s the anniversary of two days that I don’t like to remember. First, it’s the anniversary of the day my ex packed a bag and walked out, never to return. And second, it’s the anniversary of my brother’s suicide. So not a time I want to dwell in yet the calendar takes me there anyway.

I’m still trying to keep up with the aftermath of the elections but it seems that things happen so fast that by the time I read about one thing, it’s too late to act because it has already happened and there’s something else to get caught up with. I will say that my time has been limited, as usual. And I find myself treating myself with streaming stuff that I like, things that are familiar and that make me smile or even those that make me cry the sentimental tears, which are so much better than the frustrated tears.

While the demonstrations have all but ended here in Portland, I just read that Portland’s mayor is calling for a March of Hope on Tuesday. It is supposed to be a march and rally of solidarity to show that Portland stands against hate. I’m sure Portland PD will be on full alert. Let’s see what happens. I hope one thing that happens is that it will put a lid on some of the anger people have against all protests and deomonstrations. There is so much hate popping up from every corner toward every little thing. It’s quite disheartening.

On that note, I will tell you that I am trying to focus on happy things like going to Seattle to see my son’s family, especially the baby! I’m supposed to go on Wednesday for Thanksgiving. Last year I got sick right before so I stayed home alone. I’m hoping this year won’t be a repeat. I need something good to focus on. And on a silly side, I’m looking forward to the four new episodes of Gilmore Girls which will be available on Netflix on Friday! Yay! I guess even if I end up staying home  I will have something to look forward to, just not family and turkey!

What have you been up to? Are you spending the holiday with family? How do you celebrate? What’s on your family’s Thanksgiving menu?

If we were having coffee, it would be very early. It’s not quite 5 am here on the west coast. I’ve been up all night. I can’t seem to shut down. There are too many things on my mind. There is a sense of hopelessness inside of me right now. It has been a tough week.

If we were having coffee, we might be streaming one of my favorite movies. In an effort to just detach from the negativity in the world, I’ve tried to stay off of social media as much as I can since early Friday afternoon. It has helped. I’ve streamed some of my favorite movies, the ones I go to when I want to feel good. I’ve streamed Under the Tuscan Sun, Erin Brokovich, Dirty Dancing, Shall We Dance, and I finished the last half of The West Wing Season 7. I can’t quite concentrate on reading right now. Or writing. My mind is filled with things that shouldn’t be in there.

Yesterday I wrote about a peaceful protest here that turned violent and ugly when an anarchist group took over the peaceful march. There was a lot of damage done. It saddened me greatly. However, within hours, there was a group that was out there cleaning up the damage; broken glass, over turned trash cans, graffiti. It was all cleaned up by volunteers that didn’t point fingers or blame anyone. They just went and took care of the problem. They also set up a Go Fund Me account to raise money to help the businesses that were damaged by the protesters. The account raised over $37,000 in about 16 hours. I haven’t checked to see how much more has been raised. This is a good thing. It helps a lot to know that just as there are people that are willing to destroy things and disrespect the property of others and that of the public, there are also good people that are willing to go out there and take it upon themselves to try to make things right again. That made my heart hopeful and it made me proud to live here.

Friday would have been the 58th birthday of a friend that died earlier this year. That was another thing that made my heart heavy this week. I read through old emails between the two of us and some comments on Facebook between the two of us. I read what others posted about her, too.

Then there is the fact that my seasonal depression was setting in before the election so there was already that component before the world went crazy. So it’s good for me to detach a bit. It’s good to try to take care of myself before it gets bad. Last year I bought one of those light therapy lamps but it arrived too late for me to use it because I didn’t need it anymore. This year I will use it starting now.

If we were having coffee, I would want to hear about your week. I would hope that you would have something good to share with me; something happy; something positive. I would want to turn it over to you because I’m plum out of things to share. So tell me about you; about what you are up to.

On Wednesday we did one good thing. We got out of the house and went for a hike with the boys. This has become one of my favorite places as it looks out on Mt. Hood which is one of those places that makes me feel at peace and puts things into perspective. I never get tired of looking at its grandness.

If we were having coffee today, we would definitely be indoors. It is cold and wet outside.  I guess you might call it a typical November day in the Pacific Northwest. A bit of a brrrr day but not too much yet.

It seems that my weeks get busier and busier. This week it was once again busy with the daughters. I’ve been going over to my youngest daughter’s house twice a day to feed her cats. She’s on a business trip. It’s not far, her house that is, but with traffic, a round trip is about 50 minutes plus I have to spend some time there waiting for the kitties to eat. I can’t leave food out when I leave so I really need to sit and make sure they all eat and put away any food they didn’t eat. So that trip ends up being a minimum of and hour and a half.

Then there was yesterday. Last week I told you she was borrowing my car because hers went out and it is not cost effective to put in the money for a new transmission. So she had several possibilities this week. One in Seattle, 3.5 hours away. Another was in Los Angeles which would have been tough because she can’t take time off from work to get over there and back with the  car. It’s a two day trip in each direction. That was the one her dad and step mom wanted her to get (they are paying for it) but in the end it fell through because the woman who owned it was elderly and died without signing the title over to her son and her son found out that he can’t sell it until it all goes through probate and is officially his car so no deal. The latest deal is across the river from Oregon, in Washington. It’s across the river from Hood River. My older daughter, the boys, and I went out there yesterday to see the car and leave a deposit. Now we wait for the cashier’s check to arrive by Fed Ex so we can go pay the remainder and get the car back to Portland.

The trip, while long (about 170 miles round trip which took us forever with the boys) was actually quite nice. Yesterday was a beautiful day, dry, sunny, a tiny bit of briskness in the air but nice. We stopped at an apple orchard to pick apples. It is their last weekend of apple picking for the season so all varieties were 59 cents a pound. We picked and bought 47 pounds of apples for about $27. We’ll be eating apples for a couple of months!

Here are some pictures from the trip yesterday:

So what is new in your neck of the woods? Weather? Travel? Local color? Please tell.

Good morning! Come on in and have a seat near the heater vent. It’s a bit chilly and damp today. Yesterday was a gorgeous fall day but it began to rain late last night and hasn’t stopped. Let me grab a cup of coffee today or if you prefer, I have some yummy hot chocolate that I got for Anderson who is coming for another Harry Potter movie night tonight. I won’t tell him I shared it with you. Shhhh!

I woke up early today. I kind of slept all night…like from about 5:30 Friday evening until 6 this morning with a few potty wakings. I couldn’t believe the clock when I looked at it. Then when it said 7, I really couldn’t believe it because of how dark it still was. Pitch black. It’s now 8 and it is just barely beginning to get light out. I think the time changes next weekend so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at the darkness.

It was a good week. I was without a car for a couple of days because my youngest daughter borrowed my car for work. Hers died. Or at least the transmission did and with the age of her car, the $4300 estimate is just not a good idea. She’s trying to find a solution but she has no savings because she just moved up here and didn’t have a job for awhile so she went through all of her savings. She’s also paying off school loans. Her dad may be able to help her out with either getting her a dependable used car or perhaps a down payment on something. Or she might end up using a Zip Car for awhile. I think not having the car made a lot of things easier for me. It gave me an excuse to not run around doing things for my other daughter.

NaNoWriMo. Yes, it’s that time of year again. I had decided not to do it this year because I have so little time. However, because I’ve done it for so long, I keep thinking that I need to try it. This will be year ten for me. Yup. It has practically become a tradition for me. So I will be attempting it again this year. I will also be attempting to post here every day in November. We’ll see how that goes. I can usually do it but this year is a much busier year for me. As far as NaNoWriMo goes, my post here tomorrow (Sunday) will, most likely, include a plea for help. I am going into this year’s NaNoWriMo with nothing more than a vague idea of what I will write. So tomorrow I will tell you what my premise will be and how YOU can help! Please come back and read tomorrow’s post!

One thing I really need to do on Monday is call the Elections Office. Oregon votes by mail. Ballots have been mailed out. Mine has not arrived. My daughter got hers almost two weeks ago. So I have to contact them and find out where my ballot is. I don’t want to miss voting this time around. It’s too important. Way too important.

I’ve not read much this week because I’ve been trying to read more blogs and leave more comments. That takes up my reading time. I’ve also been watching The West Wing, again. I just finished the entire series three weeks ago but I’ve started it again, last weekend. It’s just the right thing to watch during election season. I won’t get through the whole series before the election but that’s okay. I want to make it through to the debate episode. The Bartlett re-election debate. That’s a favorite episode. I’m currently near the end of season 2, 18th & Potomac.

What about you? How has your week been going? Do you have any plans for the coming week? Have you done early voting? Does your state offer it?

That’s about all for today. Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the NaNoWriMo and November blogging update.

Have a wonderful day and a fantastic week!

If we were having coffee, I would have cleaned up the front porch so we could sit out there. It’s a little chilly (about 57 right now) with some 12 mph wind gusts but oh that sun! We haven’t seen Mr. Sunshine for some time and he has come to visit us! So let’s take our coffee out to the porch and I’ll grab a couple of light cover blankets so we’ll be more comfy.

There isn’t a lot to report this week, other than the fact that we got more rain and wind during the week than we got during that so-called storm that never materialized last weekend! We’re kicking in the rainy season all at once. One day it was sunny and warm and the next day it was very wet and cold! And this week the National Weather Service modified their winter projections for the Pacific Northwest. It now seems we will be colder and wetter than normal which equals snow. We’ll see how we fare. My daughter ordered a small generator than we can use if the power goes out. We’ll see how it works if we need it. In fact, I’m thinking that if I can get some money together, I might get one, too. I think she only paid about $140 on amazon warehouse deals. If we get anything like we got in 2008, I would not even be able to get to her house from mine and it is about a 1/4 mile. We got so much snow that year that it was up above my knees (I’m 5 feet short) and I couldn’t take even one step! So if that happens and the power goes out, I would be stuck here with no power, all alone.

I’m still trying to get some money to pay rent past December. I actually have a check that will take care of it but I have no bank account and the closest branch of the bank the check is drawn on is in the San Francisco bay area…a day’s drive from here (about 12 to 14 hours). So if I can get them on the phone and make sure they will cash it for me, I will be making the drive to the bay area next week. Not looking forward to it but if that’s what I have to do, then I’ll do it.

And in the hearing department, I found the lost hearing aid. It had fallen inside of a shoe that I would not be wearing again until spring! Good thing I got down on hands and knees and pulled everything out! It was just in time, too because the one hearing aide I had been wearing is no longer working. I’ve tried changing the batteries and the tubing. It’s dead. So for the meantime, I will be praying that the one that is working will keep working! I hadn’t realized how bad my hearing is until now. It’s so bad that I don’t hear the phone sitting 8 inches from me even on full volume ringtone! And I don’t hear what the boys are saying which frustrates us all when they have to repeat things ten times before I can figure out what they are saying or they give up. Not good. Crossing fingers here.

This weekend, my kids, all three of them, are at a family wedding in the SF bay area. Family. Their father’s family. It has made me think again how devastating my divorce was for my kids (and the rest of us). Not that I wanted to be there but we are family so perhaps I should have been invited. It makes me a little sad that they are all together as a family and I’m not there. There will be other times like this, too. This is the first of the cousins from that side of the family that marries. So it will happen again. I’ll get used to it.

Well, time is getting away from me. I have a lot to do this weekend. I need to clean up and reorganize the corner where Anderson and I work. He is doing a great job with reading. He can read Green Eggs And Ham and The Foot Book all by himself now. He is starting to use phonics to sound out words on his own. And although he is only starting first grade, he is doing math from the second semester of second grade and it’s too easy. I think we will be ordering the third grade math by the first of the year. I don’t want to hold him back if he can do it.

What has your week been like? Plans for the coming week? Books? Movies? Do tell!

So this happened yesterday at the reveal party…and I can’t believe it…

pinkcake.jpg

Pink! It’s a girl!

I’m not quite excited because I don’t think it has sunk in yet. I did go out and get a baby girl outfit and a baby boy outfit before the party so I could give her the first outfit for this baby so she has one pink outfit and it is from this Nana! Many more to come and I might just try to dust off my crochet hooks! The first girl after three boys is sure to be a favored child! But then again, each one is my favorite!

That’s about all that has happened this week…preparations for the party and then the party and then the disbelief! Now the name game begins. I am not looking forward to that.

I did read a whole novel since last week. It was another good one, although not what I normally read. It was also a freebie from Kindle for Samsung (you can get a free novel each month if you download the Samsung Kindle app for your Samsung device). It’s not a new title but it and its author were both new to me, Out Of the Black by John Rector.  I’ve started another which is also not my usual type of book. Not sure if I like it. We’ll see if I can get through it. I’ve finished all seven seasons of The Gilmore Girls and all seven of The West Wing. I am currently streaming the last season of Army Wives which I missed when I got rid of TV a few years ago.

Our “killer storm” turned out to be almost nothing, at least in the greater Portland area. Lots of rain but not unbelievable amounts for this area. Lots of wind but nowhere near the anticipated high sustained winds. So we can breathe a sigh of relief and wait for the next one.

What about you? What is new in your world?

If we were having coffee, I would still be in my pjs. It’s almost 1 PM but here I am, not anywhere near ready to get out of bed. I slept a lot yesterday and figured I would be up early today but that hasn’t happened. I guess my body is (a) trying to get the sleep it needs, (b) recuperating from a very busy week, or (c) both a and b.

This was a busy week, as usual. Adding to the busy-ness of normal weeks, this week there was some needed repairs done here at the mobile park where I live. A couple of weeks ago, a motorist had a diabetic seizure and crashed into the power pole and bus structure at the entrance of the mobile park. This caused power to be out for about 12 hours while they repaired the damage. However, when the man hit the post, the power lines underground were damaged and in turn, the damage took out the water pump that supplies the well water to the whole complex (122 households). They patched it up but had to order a new pump and schedule the work. That work happened on Thursday of this week so we were warned ahead of time that there would be no water (which includes no toilets) from 7 AM until 8 PM. We could fill the tub with water to use to flush toilets if we wanted to but with little ones, that wasn’t really a good solution, nor was using the port-a-potties rented by the management. So we got out of the house and wandered. It was a wet day so no park for the kids. We just ran errands as much as we could. That meant that anything that had to be done at home, didn’t get done. Then there was yesterday. I spent the day at the convention center for a Jamberry regional conference. It was stressful for me to drive out there and to top it off, I couldn’t find my car at the end. It took me over 45 minutes to find my car! I was about ready to sit down and cry. Also, my hearing loss played a major role yesterday because if I wanted to hear the Speakers without distortion, I had to turn off my hearing aids. However, that meant that I couldn’t hear anyone around me that may have been speaking to me. I think that probably made me come off as unfriendly and I feel bad that I didn’t get to meet the people with which I had chatted and wanted to meet in person.

Anyway, I got home around 5 and fell asleep on the couch, waking up at about 11:30 and coming to bed. I thought I would read for a bit but my eyes closed and didn’t open again until 6 this morning. Then they closed again until about 11:30. Wow. I must have been beyond exhausted. Yeah, I need vitamins. Or Geritol. I remember the commercials for Geritol when I was a child and I used to think they were so silly. Now I need to go out and find some!

I managed to start and finish another novel this week. Reading is back for me! Yay! It was another one I got for free as a Kindle First Reads. It’s called Evelyn, After. It’s a pretty good novel and even though it had some “spice” to it, I enjoyed it and recommend it to you. There was a lot more to it than “spice.”

This week might be a little lighter because there’s no school tomorrow (Columbus Day) so that will let me have a day off from teaching but it is also the day my daughter goes to get her ultrasound that tells us if it is a boy or a girl coming into our lives. I’m not sure if she will need me to go with her or not. If not, I get to stay with the boys. Gender reveal social will be next Saturday so I guess I will have some news next week.

Along the baby lines, this week is Baby Loss Awareness Week, internationally. If you get a minute, you might look it up. It’s important not only for those of us who have lost infants but also for the rest who don’t know how to help, how to relate, how to support the moms and families that lose a child to miscarriage, still births, or infant death. It’s a subject near and dear to me.

Tarot work is continuing as I try to get some customers. If you know anyone that might be interested, please send them my way. The link to the FB group is here.

That’s about it for today. Tell me what you have been up to!
