As Is

Have you ever noticed, when you think you need to get a hair cut, your hair will suddenly get more manageable?  I need a haircut, it is too long and too uneven, but I got a new blow dryer (the old one shorted out) and I think it is much better than the old one.  It's a theory.

There are now many many birds on the feeders, this morning I saw 6 bluejays at once, and of course hordes of little-ees like sparrows.  I haven't seen a hummingbird on their feeder, although I did see one in front of the house.  When my mom was here she hung up several and filled them every day, there would be dozens on each one all day.  They are so pretty and delicate, hope they find our feeder soon.

I went to the orthopedic doctor yesterday and got a cortisone shot in my bum knee.  He said the x-rays show it is getting worse, but as long as the shots help I will not consider knee replacement.  It feels great today.  We have been mulling over selling this house and getting a one-story so I won't have to cope with stairs, but the amount of work it would take to get ready to sell is overwhelming.  I have been watching the property transfers in the paper to see what the neighborhood  homes have been selling for and it is staggering.  If there is a downturn in the real estate sectors it hasn't shown up here.

I woke up the other day, and in that half-asleep mode I thought, oh hell it's Monday I have to get ready to go to work.  Then I thought, wait a minute, I don't work anymore,  and then finally realized it was Wednesday too.  Bleaah.  It was as bad as those dreams you get after graduation, that you have to take a final in a class you never attended...

Almost time to go, bye for now...
