Random thoughts

1.  So just under the wire, I switched my google reader to feedly.  I had a lot of choices but the emails I had with the different choices were deleted somehow.   Feedly was the only one I remembered.  I like it, at least for now.  It's not very complicated.

2.  For a long time I haven't been able to delete blogs from my google reader.  Since I changed I've been able to get rid of blogs that no one's been writing for years, ha!!

3.  A couple of weeks ago, we had to get our refrigerator fixed.  The guy came and took it apart and then hippie had to help him put it back together because he was having a hard time getting the freezer shelves back in @@.  At least it seems to be working ;-)

4. I figured Michelle Chamuel wasn't going to win The Voice but that's okay.  I think she's going to do well anyhow.  

5.  My life's been pretty boring right now, just how I like it lol.  However, Magellan's going to be on vacation so I might do something with her.

“and as they ran from the house they could see the lightening and feel rain on their faces knowing they were free.”

“Is that the end grandpa?”

“Yes Sam.”

“What happens to the ghosts in the house?”

“I don’t know it doesn’t say.”

“Hm, that’s not a very good ending.”

“That’s the thing about books, not everyone always likes the endings.”

“I want to have a book in the library.”

“You do?”

“I already started it. It will take years to get done.”

“What’s it about?”

‘Would you like to read what I have so far?”

“I would be honored.”

1.  Way to go Michelle Chamuel, for making it to the final three on The Voice.

2.  I must be hearing too much country music on The Voice, practically every song I'm hearing on their sounds country to me lol.

3.  I've been on the computer obsessively typing since last Friday.  Somewhere I got a new story in my head and since then it has been my new obsession.  I've even stopped reading.  I love it when the words just flow for me.   I'm sure this too will pass.

4.  My Mary story is on the back burner for now until a muse comes along for that.

5. We were going to visit mom and were stopped at an intersection.  The turning light came on and the people across from us went.  Suddenly, I saw a Mama duck and her babies (there were 5 or 6) crossing the street at the same time.  Luckily, the cars were able to dodge them.  Then the light changed and we had to go so I never got to see if they made it across to the sidewalk.  I thought about taking a picture but I was too distracted fearing that they were going to get run over.  I was worried about those ducks the whole time we were at mom's.  We normally go home another way but we had to stop at the drugstore so we had to go the way we came.  I was apprehensive when we got to that intersection but luckily, there were no dead ducks, ha!

6.  Speaking about the drugstore, I was done taking my prescription Vitamin D a while ago.  I finally picked up the over the counter D, I hope I didn't mess myself up.  I go back in September for a blood test, so I guess I'll see then.

7.  Hippie went fishing again this week, they didn't catch much but at least he caught something.  Although I was surprised, the day they went it was very windy.  In fact he said the waves were so high in the lake, water came over the side and got his pants all wet.  I guess that's the life of a fisherman lol.

She walked out of the room and waited.

When the door finally opened, her friend came out.

“Do I even have to ask?”

“Cindy, when he said I release all fears and doubts all I heard was blah, blah, blah.”

“You’re modus operandi.”


“How many places have we gone to find a technique to help with your stress?”

“We haven’t found the one yet.”

“You don’t really give them a chance, Grace” and they walked out of the building.

She knew Cindy was right.

“I’ll try better next time, promise.”

“I’ve heard that before.  I’ll call you tomorrow.”

“Bye” and they got in the cars.
