..of the rest of my life.
I have been silent for a while but there has been no particular reason, it´s just tha "adding a blog entry" is about the last of my "spark chores" and I have seldom got so far for the past month.
I am almost finished moving. I still have a chair, a "poodle dryer (big hair dryer for grooming dogs) and a guest spar foldable bed left to transport here. Well, my piano forte and a big cupboard is also remaining but I will leave that until I find some good way to get them here without dying... and for the cupboard I might try to sell it because it seems as I won´t need it here.
It is stormy outside today, I can see the birds fighting against the wind when they are approaching the birdfeeder outside my kitchen window. I got SO many birds among then "domherrar" that are so winter... I have to go look for a picture:
The house is great although it makes me a little nervous because it has not been cared for for many years. The wallpapers are stained, dirty and with a lot of holes in them, the door handles are worn as the window locks and there are e a lot of small things to fix. Luckily I am quite a "handyman" myself and the faults so far are not fatal.
But I managed to crush the oven door with a book shelf the other day... that is the result when I try to do everything myself, the bookshelf fell over when I was moving it and hit the stove and the oven door so bad that it fell into a zillion pieces. The oven still works, the inner door is intact but I hope there are a spare part t buy because I do not want to buy an new stove... although there are a lot on second hand market since people throw out perfectly good stoves because they want induction or other modernity's... my nephew offered me one because he had his kitchen handicap suited and therefore had the "normal" stove removed, it´s just that my stove is wider than normal so I can not just change it.
I had neglected AA meetings to get time to move and I can feel it because my anxiety raises when I don´t go to meetings. Anxiety is a bad habit of mine and I will have to work it.
Yesterday was my birthday, I did not have the energy to organize a party. The result was friends and relatives dropping in all day and I fed them with cake and did not have any proper food myself all day, it is very obvious to me that one of my great problems is that I neglect myself as soon as other people claim my attention. I need to address this but I do not know how really.
That will be another blog. This one I will end with a picture of firewood... not the staple I got from my friends as a birthday present but one similar to it. Pure birch wood, very dry and very much, I have the BEST friends a person can have. It is stapled on my back porch, very convenient to carry inside when needed. As for example on a stormy day like this!
Thanks for reading!
