Missing in Inaction

It has been a while since I've posted, not because I've been busy, but more because I've not. Had a challenging week filled with heart palpitations and anxiety- trigger indefinable. Kept me stuck in my head in the dark spaces. One might think that after 40 years of having PVC'S and being told my docs that they are benign, I'd relax around the issue, but hasn't happened yet.  My birthday is coming up and it looms large as an unhappy time because it is connected to tragedies. If I didn't think it was already gone, I'd say I am losing my mind. In spite of that I continue to function.

This week is all about getting ready for Turkey Day and I am certainly thankful that my granddaughter is hosting this year. I do have to get there early as apparently no one else is comfortable making the gravy.

Yesterday was great because Erin and the kids came over and spent most of the day. We had blueberry pancakes, bacon and eggs for breakfast. With two of us working meal prep and clean up was easy enough. Then they worked on a jigsaw puzzle that the husband had started. I knitted.  We followed up with meatloaf, potatoes au gratin and green beans and a game of Trivial Pursuit,  a Norman Rockwell sort of day - life on the farm on a winter day,

I have begun a new mosaic. The steps down to my bathroom are brick and the mortar has come out. I have been concerned that I might fall and instead of just fixing them am going to mosaic the front and background. Posting the before pic and one of the small bit I've begun.

Reconnected with an online friend and we are exchanging gratitude lists, hoping that will raise my energy levels as it has in the past.

Reading another in Ann Cleeves Shetland mystery series and watching BBC's - "Life on Mars."

Now, I've nothing more to say. I don't care for these morbid posts which is why I've been silent.

Oh damn. I am sending love and hugs and comfort and some JonJon purrs because those help when he's not driving me bonkers. Anxiety does indeed suck so very much.

Thanks, your're a sweetheart.

Bah, hit enter before I was ready. Also, are you going to put colorful things in the cracks? I like the brick
Nov. 19th, 2018 03:22 pm (UTC)
Yes will fill in with color and heal the cracks. The bricks are collectible around here, made in an old brick factory now long gone. We scavenged a bunch from an old building site.

Those are lovely bricks and the mosaic's beginnings look promising.
I'm looking forward to seeing more of it.

Thanks, i'm trying to match the pattern in the rug in there.

I post less when I'm down, too. Hope you start to feel more yourself soon <3

And that really was a Norman Rockwell family day :) So nice to read that.

You know it comes and goes. If you've seen the movie, "Blow", there's a great line in there "Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on." Reminds me of my life.

Everything is temporary, I just need to be ^ up for the holidays. And so it is.

Yup--I can relate to that a little too much as well. (And I do remember enjoying 'Blow' very much, but I should really see it again because I honestly don't remember much now.)

Here's to getting back 'up' <3

I do love me a Norman Rockwell sort of day.
If I want excitement, I'll go see a movie or get a new book to read. I'm all for a G-rated life.
{{{Hugs and sending calming thoughts}}}

I like that, " a G- rated" life.

Thanks for the soothing, feels good.

I'm sorry you haven't been feeling so good in the health and spirits departments. May your spirits lift and you have good times with family! I actually did notice you Missing In Action, so know you were missed <3

And, ah, ha! The weather has not suppressed your creative mosaic spirit. You found a place indoors to do it. And it's adding cheer, I do believe.

Thank you so much. Holidays are rarely good for my spirits which really sucks.

Creativity is a good distraction and breaking plates can be therapeutic lol

I know what you mean about holidays being a fraught time.

I think you can get away with breaking a few plates by saying you are using them in your mosaics :)
Nov. 20th, 2018 01:41 pm (UTC)
Love the steps!
Hugs to you...
Nov. 20th, 2018 03:09 pm (UTC)
Thanks on both counts.
Nov. 21st, 2018 03:17 pm (UTC)
Looks like the start of more of your beautiful art.

Wishing your birthday and holidays will be far better than you're anticipating!
Nov. 21st, 2018 04:00 pm (UTC)
Thanks ever so. Much appreciate the well wishes for the holidays too.
