Weekend Check-*out* Check-in
Good morning:-) I am checking out for a day or two. Nothing personal to DS, but real life kicked my kneecaps pretty badly, and my spoon drawer is *empty*, so I'm taking a couple days to just isolate, read books I already knwo by heart b/c it's easy and soothing, and maybe if I get reallllly radical, watch TV. I have the health rights rally today---holding a sign in a wind is going to be fun (not)---but I caught Hubby's cold and between that, and some other crap? Yeah, bedtime for the puma. Hot fluids, bed rest, and Monday I up-and-at'em.
Or pretend I'm up and at 'em. Whichever.
Who is Roberto? It's the name of m ybaseball bat. For Roberto Clemente, a player who died when I was a tiny tot, but was one of my dad's fave players, so .... Do you name inanimate objects? Cars, etc.? The bat's about it for me, but our neighbor calls his Cooper Mini "Zelda". (Took me weeks to realize he meant the car and not a girlfriend. Ew.)
So check *this* out....
These are actual places on our planet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFdBNJsW46Y I vote massive (mental) road trip.
A few locations: What is that huge crystal mine in Mexico? Selenite crystals!
The flower fields? Just pretty cool.
The Bolivia site that looks like a mirror? Is a salt flat. Huge lithium salt reserves there, very valuable, and the layer of salt can, at the right angle, act as if it's a reflective surface in the right spots. (Most of it just looks like a big white flat, btw, anad is noted for its breeding flamingoes. Bright pink birds on white. Freaky, but true.)
There's a lake in Senegal that looks like Pepto-Bismol pink. It's highly saline, and the algae give it the pink color, which is most vivid in dry seasons. (Diluted, obviously, the water is less "pink".)
This video is a nice travelogue of just odd places: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZbWtUe5B3Q It's narrated, no need for your resident nerrd;-)
OK, off to rest up. Blessings, all.:-)
OMG, third try... Can I please have no error messages? Just by exxisting I got them... OK< so far so good.Didn't sleep much. Brain is in spin cycle. Rain settling in to day with lower temps for a few days, then shooting from 65F to 90F in like 36 hours in a few days. Yeesh. Fibro-barometer is going bonkers!***Happy Earth Day! April 22! GO hug a tree! Plant one! Recycle something! Remember, we...
i had a sleep study done Monday to find out the reason for my insomnia. It turns out I do not have, now at least, sleep apnea. I've lost about 25 pounds since I do believe I did have it, weight for me made a big difference. There was no reason they could find for my insomnia as far as how my body functions. I slept 3.9 hours out of 7. something. I actually did hit REM sleep, but he said only...
OK, so long story short is: Since about 1980, I've had recurring nightmares of zombies. Straight out of George Romero's original "Night of the LIving Dead", and that movie could send me screaming five seconds into the credits for years. Great film, don't get me wrong, classic, in fact (and since my dad's one cousin plays one of the zombies, I know that the atmospheric constancy of the crickets...
