▪getting ready for Turkey Day, amazing how much energy the planning, preparation and serving of one meal can consume.

▪joined a FB group for hippies, hoping to meet some old ones like me, pretty certain I'll be woefully disappointed.

▪had a spell of vertigo that lasted about 2 hrs. I so dislike that feeling. Probably hypostatic bp with a touch of dehydration. I never drink enough in winter.

▪felt called by the cards and did a few readings, realized how rusty I am.

▪made 2 loaves of bread for the dressing. Having to beat people back from it so there will   be some left for Wednesday.

Hope the vertigo is long gone! It is an awful feeling, I know. Staying hydrated in winter is definitely tough. Do you like fruit? I try to up my fruit and raw veggie intake in winter to balance things out. Soup helps, too, so long as it's not too salty :)

Good luck with the FB group--I'm thinking positively for ya. I know what you mean about being disappointed, I've been there many times (I'm not on FB but I tried that MeetUp website for awhile and it was just weird every time). But every once in awhile you meet someone special.

You got me thinking about my old "cyber" girl/boyfriends, now, too. That's what we called it then, back in the days of Yahoo! chatrooms. Remember chatrooms?? Things are so different now... I found an old duo-tang full of love emails from one of them (the most special one, the only one who really matters) that I'd printed out on loose-leaf paper. I haven't even been able to go through it, and we found it cleaning out the basement storage a month ago. I just know when I read them I'm going to feel 16 again, like it's 2001 and I'm back in the Before (when my dad was alive) and it's going to be intense... She committed suicide in 2014. It still makes no sense to me. She made me CDs and I still play them. I make sure I talk about her.

Sorry the cards didn't seem to give you what you were looking for. I get rusty, too. If I'm feeling down, I can't seem to get a clear reading (for myself or anyone else) but I always end up going back to them when the clouds part again.

Oh my yes, yahoo chat rooms provided me with endless hours of entertainment and all that on dial-up.

*Hugs* what a busy, busy day! You do more in a day than I do in a week. It would be easier to get stuff done if I didn't have to work seven hours a day - work always rains on my parade. :P

If I don't keep busy, I get even crazier than I already am lol

Boy, do I know that feeling!

Wait a sec - our birthdays are on the same day? Well, happy birthday!
Nov. 23rd, 2017 12:26 pm (UTC)
Wow, how cool is that? Happy Birthday!

Ah the 'stuff.' I've got a list like this too most of the time. Whenever I find myself out of work, I find myself twice as busy just doing all the little things that I like/have to do. None of it would seem important to anyone else, but it fills my days, uses my time, and comprises my life.

It's the minutiae that makes up a life I think, there's always something to take up the time.
Nov. 23rd, 2017 12:27 pm (UTC)
So true. I've always recognized the value of the 'little things', because there are so much more of them than the big things that happen in life.
Nov. 24th, 2017 05:52 pm (UTC)
YES! Those little things can become a mountain harder to climb than one big one.

Happy Birthday xox

Thanks :-)

Happy Thanksgiving! And Happy Birthday! I'm an old hippie too. Please let us know if you meet any like us on Facebook! :)

So far haven't made any friends. One of the things I most miss about the counter culture is the sense of community. It's great to discover LJ hippie friends, like coming home.

I'm 44. Am I old enough?

Hope you're feeling better. Another friend of mine has dealt with vertigo so I know it's not at all fun.

Sure you're old enough, not specifically for "old" hippies; I was hoping to stumble over some folks of my generation to share similar experiences.

The vertigo passed, now I'm trying to recover from Thanksgiving lol
