I know I’ve maintained a pretty good attitude thus far but today this crap, gavilyte deserves a huge thumbs down. It tastes nasty and has made me feel bloated and uncomfortable all day. I understand why I have to drink it but seriously it doesn’t taste any better than the last time I had it. Come on with all the improvements in medicine they couldn’t improve on this. Just because you’re older and they insist you have colonoscopies on a regular basis doesn’t mean they should punish you with this crap. All of the procedures are tomorrow. Okay vent over. I’ll give you a one-liner instead
I used to have a handle on life, but then it broke.
I always take life with a grain of salt, and a slice of lemon, and a shot of tequila.
Today’s theme by Fandago is “something that brings you joy.” Is it your family? Friends? Your job? Your religion? Share a story, a poem, a photo, a drawing, some music, or whatever you wish to share about something that brings you joy.
I can safely say gavilyte doesn’t bring me joy.
My family and my friends bring me immense joy. I’m the proud mom of 4 adult children, 6 living grandchildren and sadly 3 deceased grandchildren. My heart is full with memories good and bad.
What brings me the most joy everyday besides that first cup of coffee in the morning are my fur babies. W.B Yeats and Macavity. They make mundane days exceptional. Like for instance, this morning I went to slip my foot into my shoe because I had an appointment for blood work. If you could have seen me spring my foot back when I felt something inside that tickled my skin. (I’m either blessed or cursed with very sensitive skin, today I felt blessed I’m not overly fond of crawly things. They have their place just not in my shoes.) There was indeed something unexpected inside, a pretty fair sized cricket. How it got inside my shoe is beside me, it must have came in when I was watering the plants on the deck. But the humorous part came next. Macavity sprang on top of my shoe wrapping his paws completely around like he was engaged in a battle while the cricket watched on the floor a short hop away. I slid the sliding door open and nudged the cricket out. While Macavity snarled at my shoe. God only knows what war he was waging. I decided to go get a different pair of shoes and leave him to his mission. When I returned home from the blood work about twenty minutes later, (the lab is a block from my house) he was sleeping on top of my shoe. When he finally did move from my shoe I looked inside, there wasn’t any other guests.
Vic the other night discovered a praying mantis staring at him on his desk. We released him back outside. However in the morning, it was looking in the window hanging on the screen while Yeatsie was studying it. Macavity came over and immediately tried to swat it but the praying mantis had the advantage and moved out of his reach.
Who needs television, my daily entertainment doesn’t cause stress like the nightly news.
I don’t suffer from insanity—I enjoy every minute of it.
My song choice for today is one that makes me giggle whenever I hear it. I had a yellow polka dot bikini way back in the day. It looked really nice on me until that oopsie moment. I had gone water skiing with some friends from high school. I took a nose dive skiing but when I surfaced my top was no where to be seen. I didn’t have another top to slip on so when I went to get back into the boat there were lots of giggles from my girl friends and lots of very direct oogling from the boys. The skiing belt didn’t do much for coverage either. Unfortunately, I didn’t find my bikini top.
I really liked that suit a lot.
After that day whenever I did go skiing I learned to bring a tee shirt with me or to wear one of my boring one piece suits.
