These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Drizzly day

I'm having a rainy day. It is good that we are having rain, but I had a rough night, and the combo of being tired and having rain is ga-a-a-a-a-a-ah.

It started raining around 1:00, and there was a little thunder. Jazi got nervous and sat almost on my head to get as close as possible. Having a ten pound dog curl up on top of your head and shiver will pretty certainly wake you up, trust me. The thunder was short-lived, and she settled down, but I  found I was aching. I got some crackers and some Tylenol, and settled back in bed with the TV on to let the meds kick in.

A few minutes later Linda poked her head in my room and said, "Guess what? I think I left the sunroof open in my car."  I found a raincoat for her while she put on her shoes, and she went down the hill to check the car. Fortunately, the sunroof was closed. However, I was really awake now. Very sleepy and tired, but unable to sleep.

I tried crossword puzzles, and I kept falling asleep. But then I would turn out the light and be wide awake. I tried reading with the same result. Finally about 3:30, I got to sleep. And I still woke shortly before 7:00 this morning!

I've been napping off and on all day. And I'm achy, still. I don't know if it is from being tired or if I have a fibromyalgia attack coming on. Whatever, I feel crummy.

I had an appointment to get Lola's shots today, and I canceled that. I had other plans, too, but those are out the window. Nothing is terribly important, but I just hate that I can't keep up my schedule. Oh, well, it will all be there another day.

The dogs are restless today, too. They want to go out, but they aren't excited about the very wet back yard, and going to the deck doesn't seem to be enough for them! Right now Sammy is on the window seat, looking wistfully out the back window, and Lola just came in from the deck, issued a huge sigh and flopped on the floor! Jaz, Joey and Max are on the couch with me, immobile. Aren't we an inspiring bunch today?  LOL! Maybe I should get out the Scrabble and get a game going. Oh, wait, these dogs don't spell worth a damn, and they always argue with me about it. Guess I'll just take another nap.


  1. I'm chuckling to myself - over the scrabble idea, not the dogs.

    I had an awful day yesterday. Although it was warm and sunny here, I was achy all over. It started at 4:30 A.M. I can usually turn over and get right back to sleep, but not that time. Then I hurt all day.

    Jim and I went for a walk in the cemetary and I just walked slowly around while he hustled.

    Then we went shopping later in the day and I swear, i thought I couldn't walk in the stores. I took two Advil before we left and felt some better.

    The odd thing is that, today, I am a different person. although I did take a little morning nap, I woke up feeling like I could conquer the world. I've been perking right along all afternoon. None of it makes any sense to me.

    Sorry to bend your ear, but it is good to talk to someone who knows that of which I speak.

    Feel better.

    ~hippo hugs~

  2. You've described how it goes very well! One day I'm in a fog of discomfort, and the next I'm back to being my old ornery self. And no it doesn't make sense!

    That's what we're here for .... commiseration!

  3. Pam, I just began reading "Water for Elephants," and when I picked it up again after the above, I read these lines: "Age is a terrible thief. Just when you're getting the hang of life, it knocks your legs out from under you and stoops your back."

    Oh, yeah.

  4. Bless your heart!!

    And the Scrabble comment made me smile too! :-)

  5. My little dogs don't like to go out in the rain, either. However, my Malamute doesn't care. He will go out and take his time...then come in dripping!


  6. Andrea, my dogs love snow like crazy, but rain .... not so much!

  7. Hope you get some much needed sleep Lyn. Just snuggle with your little doggies. My hubby and myself couldn't sleep last night, finally got up, watch a couple of episodes of Natgeo on tv, had a snack and went back to bed at some ungodly hour. I hate when that happens, but what can you do??

  8. I know, Moni. I've learned I'm better off if I don't fight it, just do something and have a snack, like you did. Is it age? Sheesh!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
