Well, at the moment I’m listening to the Glass Fire update on the radio. The containment is reaching higher percentages each day which is a relief. I’m still in an evacuation warning zone. I don’t watch the news because of the effect of the images being put out there non-stop. The fires are very real here…. I see and feel the effects every single minute … Continue reading What’s on my mind?
Nearly 2 full days of sleep, herbal tea and puppy snuggles and I’m starting to feel a little physically better which makes the rest feel more manageable. Mega doses of antibiotics and prednisone help more than a little, too. I’m still tired and wear out pretty quickly, but the fever has broken and my overall pain has gone away. My lungs are still tight and … Continue reading Turning the corner
Been up almost all night. Coughing, not able to lay down at all, ruminating about the stress in my life and all the things which are adding to it. I finally journaled it all out. Not the stuff to post of WordPress. The stuff you keep private to yourself until it can be sorted out and dealt with effectively. My lungs hurt. Feels like there’s … Continue reading I’m not happy

After breakfast in the hotel, we went … Continue reading Day 16: Water Damage
I hear a knock upon the door. Knock, Knock, Knock. Who could it be knocking on my door? Some friendly? Someone nice? Or is it someone I abhor? Knock! Knock! Knock! Go away! Can’t you see? I don’t want to open my door! Pain and anguish wait outside– The face of love is only a masquerade. KNOCK!!! KNOCK!!! KNOCK!!! I look in the peephole and … Continue reading The Door
Here I sit looking at the pond. Ripples float by and never seem to end. The reflection is the sky and trees. Very pretty indeed. People walk by and pay no mind to one lone person here, crying out inside for someone to talk to. Lonely, lonely, lonely! This I don’t understand. So many friends have gone with the passing of time, but there days … Continue reading The Pond
