Life Is A Bloody Inconvenience

4 Apr

Of course we are all living through the biggest inconvenience of the century. For that reason alone, surely we should be able to control SOMETHING! A seemingly quiet day of bread making, art project, and exercise can go in a completely different direction fast.

I have been wanting cinnamon rolls. So I made them!

I can always lock myself in my studio, or escape to my hammock with headphones. Interruptions can be many, boohoo.

Don’t let the sweet face fool you.

I find that living with people, dogs, neighbors, the weather, you name it, can all have unforeseen consequences. Some days I’m ok with it, others, it’s a challenge.

Studio time.

On the scale of introverts to extrovert, I fall somewhere off center to the introvert side. I like being alone. In life before Covid, I scheduled a yearly retreat with paints, knitting, journal and a good book. Long walks, sans dogs are such a luxury.

How can I be so cranky living in paradise.? It’s an art I guess.

Today I make the decision to put my plans aside and do what needs doing, a quick trip to the doctor and pharmacy for my mother-in-law. Bladder infections come on so quickly at a certain age. I’ve managed to swim and the bread is rising. Complaining of any sort is such privileged behavior. If you celebrate Easter I hope it’s a good one. Weather here is lovely. Hammock here I come.

    It’s a process I strive to achieve also. My escape is my craft room where I can forget about the world and create my greeting cards. Happy Easter.

      Creating a retreat/work/art space was paramount for me when we built this house. My wife doesn’t even go into my messy area. 😂

    Hello there! I enjoy your blog! If mother in law has chronic bladder infection, as my mom did, please consider 1/4 teas. of D-Mannose in her OJ every morning. It absolutely works and it’s a simple sugar so quite natural. Thos UTI’s can really be hard on the elderly. I think this simple trick prolonged my mom’s life.

    Yay for your hammock. Yes being in a home with food and water, my beloved I have the privilege of being picky. Love from cloudy South Austin. 🤗

      Back at you friend. Fond memories of yoga together. Lisa and I talk of S Austin often. Glad you are still here.

    I tend toward introvert also, so this isolation hasn’t been as difficult for me as it has for many. That said, I am really happy that the weather has finally, finally warmed up here and I’m back to having coffee gatherings on my patio. On Tuesday morning, I’m making bread and several friends are coming over for bread and coffee. I really really can’t wait!

      I used to make bread frequently but hadn’t in years. Fun to resurrect my old cookbook.
