Wanted to pop in and say Hello, to all those who still follow me.  I am trying to keep up as I slow down.

We are bracing for the winter onslaught to hit and till it does we are trying to prepare the best we can.  Order more propane so the truck won’t get stuck, while he is delivering it. Pulling beaver dams so we do not lose all I worked so hard for, THE HOUSE.  JT and Rhythm are good.  My sweetheart is still getting the old 54/55 Dodge buttoned up to help with snow removal, yesterday we ran 35 miles away to pick up a new heater fan, now to locate defroster hose, in the size needed, so we can keep windows in this old beast clear so he doesn’t destroy the yard.  I hate what the plow does to the land but I hate shoveling in pain even more, so we will do what we have to with light shovels on the roof, maybe find a used electric snow thrower for the roof,  as my Mom suggests.  We have a very old snow blower but I may scrap my Dodge truck with bad tranny to purchase a  new one, just in case we do not get enough snow for the plow now isn’t that a pleasant thought!  I am always thinking.

I do not see the surgeon till the 11th but some good news, I have started to unfreeze the frozen part of the shoulder, not a lot but I see a difference.  The horrible pain of tendon is there but if I use arm slowly it never rears its ugly head.  I hate that pain.  So depending on my options I will see if I can take one more shot to get through the worst of winter and maybe in March if it has not healed I will let him in to repair it,  as our weather will start to look up by then.  See always thinking.

I want to hit the gym every other day.  With only one car, his truck it is hard.  I only have to travel 3 miles each way so it is not bad maybe by spring I could ride a pedal bike that would be awesome.

I have also had a brilliant idea for a business and will apply to the Small Business Association for a loan.  I could get out of this way of life if all goes well so please cross your fingers for me maybe your toes too. Thanks!

Holidays are not the same in this life I live now so just a few pretty things placed around the home to remind me it even on its way.

No children, no close family fun times, I will just be celebrating the birth of Christ this year and buying a small gift for a local child who will need a gift to open on Christmas Day.  I look at what I used to be able to do for so many and now the new reality is charity begins at home.  Save all year for heat and food and an occasional trip to the sea or woods to keep my sanity and not miss my old life so badly which it why I need you to keep the fingers and toes crossed because if all the good thoughts go out maybe just maybe I will have a new path doing good for others in need and getting paid and it is something I can do with my injuries.

Let me leave you with a pretty photo or two to lighten the heaviness of this post I am happy just a realist and life is what it is and there are really millions so much worse off.  Which is why I always show you PRETTY THINGS there is enough ugly out there isn’t there.
