Oh Deary Me, Weary Me

Here I am, on the 29th of October. The days are flying by. People are beginning to talk about Christmas, and I say, "not yet". There is the whole month of November before us, and an important day, November 11th, Remembrance Day. It is a special day.

I am still wandering around in a fog of no energy. Life is monotonous, each day running into the next. The thing is, I don't mind the monotony, since I have no energy. Too much excitement would probably kill me.

Dawn pretty well has the orchard wrapped up for the winter, except for odds and ends. The freeze did its damage, and crop yield on some varieties was down or non existent.

Okay, so now it is the 30th. Had to make a quick trip to the store for Halloween candy. I probably won't get many children, so of course I bought chocolate bars that the Captain and I would eat.

Two weeks ago, my washer quit, and a new one purchased. Then, my laptop decided it didn't want to open for me. Took it to the shop, and it was the hard drive....thus a new laptop purchased. Of course, everything is different on this one, and I'm just getting used to it. I also lost my email contacts.

Can you believe it is November 12th......... I really need to get ahold of myself, and move forward with something. Every day I tell myself that it would help if I wrote because I have to let loose instead of keeping everything in my poor old head. At this point, I move to begin writing and end up just staring out the window.

I do have something of consequence to write today. Granddaughter #1 has left on a great adventure with members of her university class and their professor. The have gone to The Gambia, and had a very special Remembrance Day service, where they laid poppies on the graves of Canadian Airmen who had died there during the 2nd World War. One of the men was actually from Nova Scotia. The students had researched information about these men, so the occasion was very meaningful. She has eight more days there, doing some work for their course.

13th - uh huh, another day....and it is snowing. Of course this really improves my mood, with the overcast sky. The snow isn't sticking, but it is a sign of things to come. It is supposed to get very cold toward the end of the week.

He found a new place to nap

One of his weird positions (not unusual)

So it is now the 14th of November and I am going to finish this off
and post it.
I have a visual fields test this afternoon and my Christmas Card is ready
at the printers. 
The Captain is not doing that well, and is a constant worry.

Ah well. Such is life on the mountain.
The wind is bitter cold today.
I am  not looking forward to going out.


  1. I hope things ease for you soon Bonnie. November seems such a dreary month but the year will turn and things will improve. I do hope so. You are in my thoughts. I love Aslan’s odd position it is so cute. Please keep well.

  2. Sorry to hear that you are going through a down time.Life can become hard at times, but there is always something to be thankful for.Sometimes we just have to look a little harder for this.I know, cause I'm speaking to myself.
