I hope you feel better soon Ruby...you will eventually! Glad you can rest this weekend.
I've had the laziest day...just didn't feel like doing anything. Although I did manage to put a casserole together and it's in the oven.
I saw the movie Selma today. ..actually the end of it. It was very emotional for me and I cried very hard at the end. I hate racism, injustice, and man's inhumanity to man. It disgusts me. I took a long nap after the movie.

A nap sounds good HaF. Didn't see Selma But imagine it would be wrenching. I'm still listening to NCIS so my brain is not challenged.

No cooking for me though I think I will marinate chicken wings to bake tomorrow

Tetra, sounds like you had a good day. Pretty dresses are always something to cheer you up. And it does feel good to be appreciated.

Get well soon Miss Ruby. The only cure for a virus is unadulterated rest!

There's always room on the bus. It's like the tardis if you're a Dr. Who fan. Far bigger on the inside than it appears.

Hi Gilmer! Woman of few words this evening? Hope you're well.

I'm exhausted, Ruby. Maybe I'll be more talkative in the morning!

Hope everyone's Saturday has been good (and those struggling with health are feeling better!)

Took a boat trip to Panajachel today, had breakfast in town and stopped by to check on my truck, which is parked there. All well. Was even able to pack some stuff that i brought with me, so that my haul tomorrow is more manageable. Had a couple of nice swims, plenty of high dives, and a real nice chat with a young woman staying at the Eco-lodge next door, she and her friends are here from NYC. I also met and chatted with the owners of the loft I've been staying in for the past week, they pulled up on a boat and we had a nice discussion. Nothing serious, just the usual small talk, but it was nice. Got invited by the NYC woman to meet them over at the Eco lodge for dinner tonight, but I saw a few of them drinking Coronas and my spider sense (lunar, you know what I'm talking about) is tingling. Might not be the best crowd/location/atmosphere for a sober person over there tonight.

So instead I'll sit here and listen to the rain come down. A little black cat is on my bed, she lives on the property and has been keeping me company during lazy afternoons and evenings. I've got a couple movies on the laptop that should keep me busy until nightfall.

Here's a pic of my two "buddies" up here at the lake! I'll miss them, but looking forward to driving home tomorrow after a nice week here in the Western Highlands.



Edit: And, one more pic of the great view from my bedroom terrace. I'll miss this most of all! Very lucky to live in a place where this type of scenery always at one's fingertips:

Nighty night.

I'll make myself comfortable then! Love those sober weekends. They feel so much longer... It's like a completely new quality of weekending

Sober weekends do seem to last longer and are of better quality.

Smart move BigS, to take it easy tonight. Small sleeping black cats everywhere. Must be universal. As lovely as you're week has been, it's always nice to be home.

Watching Despicable Me. It's cute.

Ifyoucan, my weekends feel like a full 2 days now. Before I would just kinda wake up on Monday with random memories and horrible anxiety.
Lunar, thanks for the nightmares.

It feels good to take care of myself and dress up. When I was drinking I didn't care how I looked and usually wore jeans, a hooding and converse. I still like converse though!

Other small things make me feel good as well. My job is far from well paid, but I felt good being able to contribute to the dinner bill, and I know my parents appreciated that too.

I surprised my mom with a small gift: a bottle of fancy bubble bath. She had tears in her eyes when I handed it to her and said "you still are my sweet and thoughtful child".
Sounds like a wonderful day, Tetra! You deserve it.

Got my errands/chores knocked out early today. Napping, reading, enjoyed a walk through the woods on this lovely day.
