Yeah, I know you are not supposed to announce to the world that you live alone, but anyone that reads my blog already knows that! Some day I may get a dog like the one my grandson, Andrew, and his family have. That would be okay, I reckon.
Since I do live alone now, I have been looking at ways that it is a blessing and I have found a few. For one thing, I can get up at any time of night and it doesn't bother anyone. If I want to get up at 2 a.m. and wander through the house putting things to right or in their place, or unpacking boxes that yet have to be emptied and put away, I can do that. If I want to take a nap at 2 in the afternoon, I am not on any kind of schedule where I have to be somewhere, and can do that.
There is the fact, too, that it doesn't take much to feed me, and as much as I miss cooking a big meal, I can be content eating alone and reading a book. I am blessed in the fact that now I can have a daughter come and have lunch with me when she is working in the area, and that is really great. I have never (since she has married and left home) had that opportunity. It is wonderful.
Speaking of putting things away, it is difficult to find places to put everything, and some places are not quite ready to put items. I still have several things to put together (i.e. the baker's rack, the park bench, the glass topped table) which are just sitting and waiting for me to pick up the screw driver and Allen wrench, and I will eventually get to doing that. I still have a whatnot shelf to put on the wall in the living room, cause I have a lot of little whatnots to put on it. I have to decide first where to put it.
Yesterday, I put 7 garbage bags of cardboard and other stuff out to be picked up by the trash collectors. It had taken me a week or more to get that much collected and I will have more next Monday. Fortunately, the collectors come twice a week. Well, I have been up since around two thirty this morning and it is almost 5 a.m., and I think I will go back to bed for awhile and see if I can get about 40 more winks. See you later.
This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends. Bye for now. More later.
