Thank you for posting that. Maybe I'm weird, but I like hearing little details about people's lives like that. Could be because I'm a naturally
curious person, or maybe it's because there's such a lack of it...people tend to share only the glossy, perfect bits they think will impress
I'd rather know the real person, warts n all. It's much more interesting and beautiful.
I hope you don't mind if I share as well.
I'm sitting in bed and my grey old cat (the one in my picture there) is sitting on a pile of pillows next to me, looking at me with his one good eye
while purring and kneading the pillows. (I just leaned over to give him a smooch on the head and he licked my nose, then curled up in a little ball,
apparently satisfied with the attention.)
It's cold out, and my house is over 100 years old and drafty. Even though I'm wearing the new blue sweater I got for Christmas, and I'm wrapped up
in a fluffy blanket, my toes and fingers are icy and I feel they've been that way since fall, and will continue to be until spring.
My room is a mess. I'm always trying to keep things neat and orderly, but it never lasts more than a few days.
Too many interests, hobbies and everyday things crammed into a small space. There's a guitar, a microscope, many different varieties of paper, paint
(acrylic, oil, fabric, watercolor), ink, craft supplies, books, thread, dremel kit, broken things I've been meaning to fix for ages (windchimes, a
beheaded statuette that used to belong to my grandma), music boxes, a synthesizer, sewing machine, cat toys, teapots, a tv, the ubiquitous basket of
laundry, my laptop, some empty soda cans and various video game consoles with games.
I feel like I've always got to have something to do, to keep my hands and mind busy.
There's a bag of licorice jelly beans and chocolate hanging from my bed post. A present from my boyfriend. He's gone now, on the road, and I miss
him. Years ago he painted a little smiley face and a heart on my bed frame with my nail polish. I was annoyed, but never got around to removing it.
Now I've grown to like it and it's too late...it'll be there forever.
There are medicines here and there. Levothyroxine, promethazine, antacids, CBD spray, acetaminophen, augmentin, st. John's wort, turmeric, zinc
My health has always been pretty poor and my stomach hurts a lot.
I think because of that, I would prefer gentle times as well! I wouldn't last too long in any kind of shtf scenario.
By the way, could you post a picture of the monk with the apple seller? I'd like to see it
