I am so sorry for really going missing in action this year. I have been going out of my mind, trying to get a handle on my anti-Trump facebook postings. I spend way too much time and energy trying to educate people of his many personality disorders that make him unfit to even be considered as a candidate. I have tried very hard to not let it bother me, but I would rather sacrifice my energy now making sure he does not get into office. If any of my followers truly think he is a great guy feel free to unfollow me. My own family might vote for him, and that might explain my deep seated life long mental issues.
So onto the positive things I have done the past few months! I am still with the same boyfriend I met through plenty of fish. I think he is perfect for me. I hope he always feels the same way about me. My two grandchildren are growing up fast. My granddaughter just got back from a family trip to Poland. My grandson is starting to walk around on his own. My granddog is almost a year and has calmed down a little bit, but he is so tall and lanky. He reminds me of Clifford the big red dog, only all black. I spent a weekend visiting my mom, and stopped at a few places on the way home. The pic above I believe was at Raquette Lake, NY. I also drove into Sagamore Camp, but I missed the last tour of the year by a couple hours. I drove down a narrow twisty road out of curiosity to see what the Buttermilk Falls sign was all about, but it could not be viewed from the road. It was raining, so I did not feel like walking down the trail alone. I was unprepared to do any walking as well.
Next month is my last car payment! It has been a long million years paying off a new car loan…lol. I will never do that again, live and learn. I had the car for one year before I had my stroke. Before my stroke, I had to take on a second job or work overtime to pay for the car payment. My plans for the following month are to seriously look at getting myself a bike. I hope it will be a two wheeler, that I can lift onto a car carrier by myself. I don’t mind if I need a special pedal attachment for my one foot to stay on. I am more confident that my affected hand and arm will not get in the way too much, but I will find out.
My garden went neglected once the temps were more than I could bear and the rain barrel went dry from lack of rain. I also saw a large snake…lol. Next year, I will have my container veggies closer to the rain barrel/house and just have my flowers/perennials out where I had my garden. I neglected my whole yard with proper care. My lengths to avoid direct sunlight were met with the arrival of the evening mosquitoes. I did manage to make it all year without a letter from the town telling me my grass was too long. I wonder if that person who complained died or moved away? Anyway, it is ironic to me, since in my opinion my yard has looked the worse condition ever this year…lol. Fuck them, I am the one that has to suffer knowing I own it. Maybe next year will be my dream of the yard being covered in stones and gardens.
