Just a Note


Truth. No offense intended, okay? I should have drawn a lemon but I am so good at pears, I gotta tell you. A good pear is juicy and sweet, right? So is the truth as you have experienced and lived to tell it. Well, life hasn't been great in Limnersville recently, but no one wants to read about it the draggy parts, so I won't tell them. Y'all have your own problems, but a burden shared is often lessened in the telling. If you disagree, then please stop right here. Do not read any more because intend to whine talk about how Life has its ups, downs, and all around puckers. But that's Life, right? It won't take me all night since I can't write for very long.

I like etegami. Thank you, Cole! Etegami is good if you have a bum dominant arm. The flaws and oopsies translate into art in etegami. If you haven't tried it, but are artistically inclined, then please do try it. We can trade cards. For more etegami info, check out this link: http://simplicityembellished.com/?s=etegami.

Anyway . . . I saw a specialist yesterday. The good news is, there is hope for recovery. I haven't damaged my pitching arm beyond repair. Having your hand turn purplish is frightening though. So is having it go numb. I am scheduled for two MRIs. Oh, joy. 

Life's puckers really can suck if you don't wean them. How does one wean in this instance? Well, I have relaxed. I am taking better care of myself the last few days. In this case, silence is golden. No news is good news. I have a write future. I'm saving my arm. However, I will write. I have to hand over my mailbox key due to my inability to drive. JC has sworn in writing that he will check my mail until I can. Guess what. Today was a great mail day. 


I got mail! Oh, happy day!



I filled my canteen, broke out a new Glass Dharma straw, took a pill and propped myself up for a good read. See the first envie? It's from Randall. He and I have a thing going on. No, not like that. I'll tell you all about it as soon as I am able. It is total fun, so you might want to stay tuned. Oh. And I cannot drink, so instead of a sippy cup . . .

Life is good.

Write on, and thanks for listening.

  1. See that scratch-out on the envelope? That's where MY dyslexia kicked in and I suddenly realized the P.O. Box number and the Zip+4 code did not match. I'm glad it arrived safely though!!

    1. LOL Randall. The lovely penmanship is what a reader sees first and foremost. I wish I could find white ink that flows as prettily as yours. And thanks for playing along. I'll share after our little venture has come to an end.

    1. Thank you, JarieLyn. Still such a lovely name. My Klean Kanteen goes with me everywhere. It's dented and primed from love. I got my first glass straw from Glass Dharma when they had a giveaway last year. I bought a bunch to give away, and ordered four shorter ones just last night. I wish they had better sleeves for them, but I could also make my own, huh?

      Would you like one when they come? They help save our planet. :)

  3. I agree with you about the lovely penmanship. Regarding white ink that flows, try one of the Signa (Sigma?) pens. The trick seems to be in holding it perfectly upright and not like you might hold a pen regularly. If that change in attitude (of the pen, not you) is too bothersome you might try a dip pen with white ink. I'm just throwing out some random thoughts, though.

    1. Thanks Melanie. I buy gel pens and they never work well. I've been told humidity is a factor. I've done the blot the nib with a cotton swab too often, with no effect. The gold and silver pens work well though.

      Do you ever use white ink pads with stamps? The paper seems to absorb the white ink but the gold floats on the surface. Okay, am off to surf for Signa/Sigma. :)

    1. That's too bad. I got the freebie, bought four and ordered four more. I carry one in my bag and use it in restaurants. I try to do my part to keep Mother Earth healthier. Even paper straws are better than plastic. Paper is recyclable and new trees can be grown.
