Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Mmm, that sounds nice.

Epic, thanks for the update! That all sounds reasonable promising.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Yeah, Epic, other than the mystery fever, that all sounds very favorable!

Pumpkin bread update: REALLY good. It has a nice little bite of ginger. My day is autumn-tastic.

Punishingly Intricate

Thanks for the update, Epic.

I’m in the ER waiting for my Dad to get admitted or let go. At least they let my Mom go sit with him in their triage area. It’s very busy here today. Wish I’d brought my book. (His blood pressure was very low this morning.)

Health~ma for your dad, lisah. I'm glad they let her go with him.

Thank you for the update, Epic. That sounds encouraging. I'm glad you followed up with the doctor on the fever. With reduced immunity you are better off double checking. Another step forward in your treatment plan. The ~ma continues to be sent in a steady stream.

Book club tonight. I noticed my neighbor's farm stand has butternut squash so soup is in my future, and maybe other stuff as it looked like she had a good crop. She had a bunch of pumpkins too, but I really haven't cooked from fresh pumpkins before, despite loving them in general. Going to check out some recipes though. Also, check out what else she has that I couldn't see from the road.

Lo que será, será.

Good update, Epic. Don't mess about with fevers.

Stay hydrated.

Onwards!

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

Happy Birthday Matilda!

Another awful night with Mr. S. We went to Gary's mom's house for Rosh Hashanah. Dinner went fine. She had arranged for a neighbor's kid to come watch Mr. S while we did virtual services. About 10 minutes in he came running upstairs and started getting aggressive. He knocked Gary's glasses off, then ran out the door. He continued to be violently aggressive to the point that 911 was called. Off to the ER we went, where he had another meltdown and had to be medicated. He ended up staying overnight, with Gary in the room with him. I drove home around 1 am. I ended up picking them up(after he had another meltdown and got more meds) around 10. He promptly took a nap. I don't know what set him off to begin with, but we obviously need a different plan for Erev Yom Kippur.

Oh Sheryl, you and Gary must be so exhausted. I do hope you can come up with a more effective plan soon for all of you.

I am excited. On the local Otter Lake FB group there were several pictures from various days of a MOOSE on Lakeview Road, which is the road my sister lives on and I drive every day. The pictures were all early morning and I drive to pick her up every day at 6:30 AM and drive her back around 7:45 so I have digits crossed that we will see him!! (the time we go to the gym, Mona pays the dues and I drive every day so she has more wake up time)

Moose alert! This is not a drill!

'Tis another grey day in San Francisco, and once again everybody is moving at the speed of slug. As soon as I scootch Matilda out the door I have to move the car out of the garage so they can begin working. Then I'll get my run in.
