ON THE BACK BURNER

May 27

I hear a lot of people complaining   that they are feeling rudderless, unfocused, searching for words, just a general malaise.Even their pets are feeling the pressure of having their humans underfoot all day. i have had some of those feelings. I can’t seem to read a book. Working on a puzzle got me  as far as dividing the pieces into color blocks. Even cook books don’t appeal to me.Maybe that is why I gave bags of them away. But I feel good. I am not stressed from being mostly alone for so many days. The day goes by quickly. I have to check my little travel clock to know what time it is. I haven’t worn a watch since Feb. 22. I thought about getting a Smart Watch. After some thoughtful moments , I concluded that I hardly ever wear a watch so why spend that money to keep it in a drawer. Instead, I bought a mahogany ukulele called a pineapple ukulele. It is actually  shaped more like a pineapple than the hip shape of a traditional ukulele.  The top has ridges like the leaves of a fresh pineapple. Pretty cool. I bought a lot  of stuff these last  4 plus months , from Amazon. That was my secret  to looking forward to every day. Nothing was expensive. , Today, I received one of my last orders from Amazon. A memory foam mattress and tomorrow I get the bed frame. So far I have bought 2 toilet seats, the mattress and the soon to be delivered bed frame, a Sherpa travel case , on wheels, for Dixie,a ukulele music book,some pistachio nuts, and fruit tea. Everything was a must need. The last thing that I am waiting on is a duffel bag to take with me to Port Townsend. As soon as I am near to my kids and grandkids, I won’t need to look for love from Amazon. Love will be all around me.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
