I had a troubling Doctors appointment today. Do not stress out. It's been my mantra most of the day. Tears have flown freely. I have tried to sleep as much as possible so I don't have to think.

More tests tomorrow and on the 6th. There is so much going in in my mind right now... This could be something relatively simple and unimportant... Or something big.

Living with not knowing for the next week or so it's going to be almost impossible. So far I've only told my Mom and my neighbor who caught me crying as I got out of the car... And now of course, the Internet, via my blog which no one reads. Haha. I needed that laugh.

The Real Thing

I received a Kindle for my birthday this year, and instantly fell in love. As much as I adore 'real' books, I have read only one book with actual pages since June.

Technology is such a wonder... I saw two books on my friends Goodreads profile and added them to my to-read list. Once done she shipped them to me, and upon receiving them... I had to take a photo with Instagram and post about it on my blog.

I remember the first computer my parents brought home.. The beeper my Dad carried for emergency calls from the fire & police departments... The 1 megapixel camera that came free with an electronics purchase when I was in highschool. Now my phone does everything those things did and more.

There is still something special about receiving a package in the mail, and the smell of books... Something technology has yet to replicate.

Thanks for the books!

The cat is stretched out atop my bed, sun streams in wide open windows... The smell of tea and the sound of beans boiling... Music plays softly, wind blows setting the chimes on the awning to singing. The freshly vacuumed rug feels knobby beneath bare feet, the sweet tartness of an orange lingers on my lips.

Soon it will be time to make dinner... But for now I'm relaxing, enjoying the most simple parts of life.

I cleaned the RV today in spurts. Sometimes I'd sit and watch Alias... Then I'd frantically drag a broom across the floor... A brief trip to the corner store for coffee and a hot dog really made it feel like my day off.

For a while I worked in the yard, cleaning up watermelon rinds and watering plants.

I'm down to one potato, no rice, and a smattering of mixed greens in the fridge. There is something quite pleasant about eating the bits and pieces leftover from grocery shopping. Clearing out space for more...

Today is one of those days where I simply am. Present. Me. Content. Changing. Alive. Happy.

Oh my!

I can blog from my phone! Who knew... Without a computer (or reliable Internet) I have slacked off on blogging. With so many thoughts running rampant in my head, it's good to know I still have a place to share.
