Up before the critters around 3:45. DIL drama swirled around and I let it go. A definite improvement!
Gdaughter and I had a good weekend despite the swirls.
No big plans today except housecleaning that Iíve procrastinated on.

A safe sober Monday to all.

Good morning all, yesterday marks my second sober birthday.
It was an important one and I am happy to have survived and prevailed substance free.
Thanks for all the support here.
Grateful to be sober, healthy and working.
Have a very happy Monday

Happy "hump-day" all and thanks for the good wishes.
Our usual foggy windy summer weather here and a regular day ahead.
Hoping everyone has a great Wednesday.

Slept in till after 6:00 AM

Just lazing around today. I will see daughter later.

DIL not good but is trying to climb out of the pit of relapse. Blackout, fired from job... It was fun the first day and very quickly progressed. As always itís the first one that kills you. Anyway, I am staying positive and keeping up with my life.

That was a good funny CK. Humor is always healthy.

A good rest of Wednesday to all.

Bathroom alarm. I was having a very strange dream and trying to call 911 in it. That must have been the alarm!
Critters fed and am waking up from the dream daze.
Not much on my schedule today.

A pleasant Thursday to all.

Hopefully DIL can bounce back with determination to stay sober this time Imvalentine. I hate having desperate dreams like that.

Have a good day all!

Coffee and critter time.

Took a short road trip to CO yesterday with DIL. It was wonderful to get out. We hit Whole Foods. I could spend hours there just looking. We had a pleasant time and good conversation. CO has stricter rules on Covid19 than we do so it was comfortable. This afternoon is home bound friend outing.

Happy Friday!

Glad you got out Imvalentine. Good that you had some quality car time with DIL.

Coffee and critters for me also. I am now up to four feeders to fill each day, plus a newly planted butterfly garden to water each rain free morning. I am really enjoying watching the birds and squirrels that come by each day. In these Covid times, it is entertaining to have nature come to you.

Have a good day all!

I have rented this place for 6 years come October. I enjoy the huge backyard and the critters enjoy it also. They are well fed and appreciated. Itís my place to talk and be with a higher power. Iím very lucky!

DIL back to work today. They called her back in but the place seems to trigger her anger and stress. I guess anyplace can do that. Hoping for the best.

Enjoy your Saturday all.

Up for an hour so before midnight and now at a normal time. Donít know what was up earlier.

The crows are having a fit over something in the trees. An invader? Enforcements were called in. Never a dull bird moment.

Have a good Monday everyone.
