Things are moving along at a pretty good pace here… I’d say my mental and emotional state have returned to what is “normal” for me… a little weepy… a little anxious… a lot of overthinking… and along with that, the laughter and brightness has returned as well! A welcome change to where I was at a month ago. I’ve spoken with some support people, and feel armed with resources if that dismal place starts creeping up on me again.
In other news, I’ll be going to my 10th chiropractic visit tomorrow. He has a very holistic view, and is helping me nutritionally and homeopathically as well as with small adjustments and muscle stim. I’m still coping with the disk issue, whatever that may be (bulging?) but I can usually sneeze without yelling, and can almost ALMOST reach my feet to tie my shoes. With my knees bent. And something to lean on nearby. Sigh.
Winter prep is in full swing. My landlord found a new woodstove for my apartment, and it’s lovely! I’ve had 2 small fires to season it, and am looking forward to maybe using it tomorrow night when it’s supposed to be in the upper 30s at night. The porcupine has some work going on at his place that I’ve been offering moral support during (and food!). Purchasing new winter tires is hanging over my head. This fall has been amazing so far though, beautiful colors and near perfect temperatures.
In blog news, I received some emails saying that there were problems with new folks subscribing to the blog… I’m going to try and wrestle with that tonight… it requires a hot beverage and unlimited patience to read all the forums and fine print, so I will try and rally.
What else is there? Art wise, I’m pondering some new holiday cards and starting to think about how to pull the Advent calendar off this year… stay tuned…
