First of all, I will say that apparently I had the wrong 'view' (that pencil sketch on the far left) set up on the new blogger. When I got on to do a new post, it was in the html mode, not the compose mode - so there was no big T little t available at the top, and no normal signs that I've been used to.
You would think that being retired, we'd have all the time in the world... (more or less - if we don't conk off unexpectedly one day). But what seems to happen (at least with me lately) is what is pictured in this cat poster... "Ah, so much to do! So little desire to do it!"
There are things that I do that need doing every day and are done... like cooking, cleaning, maybe texting or talking with friends or family. But there are some things that have been needing doing for a very long time... sorting, filing, throwing away... that I can't seem to make myself do. I plan to, sometimes start, but never finish. Why is this?
We get the basics done, even some of the 'needed for some time' things like having the tree men come and cut down the large dead tree that had fallen some time ago out back. They did this this morning (cost $$$).
But I have to find a way to get motivated to get all this paperwork that accumulates, sort through the mail, and file... as well as throw away stuff we no longer need. How to do this?
I had to call this morning to find out why I've never received my absentee voter's ballot when DH received his last week... and we mailed in our requests together.
Then the Sleep Clinic called to say that I don't have to return this week as apparently I don't have Sleep Apnea (good news!). But they want me to keep my online appointment with the doctor to discuss possible other issues???
I still get up occasionally (did early this morning) and have tea with Ghost in the kitchen... at about 5 or 6 am. Ghost is no longer with us in person, but she is certainly still around in spirit. 💖
Going to close this now. Just wanted to update those who might be interested. Hope you all have a wonderful week. Wish you could all have tea in the kitchen with me and Ghost...
(Oh, and I made an old fashioned custard pie yesterday. I love custard pie - well, I love custard anything pretty much.)
So here's a pic:
