laughter in the rain

I enjoyed a good long talk with my sister this morning. She’s doing ok and hoping Friday’s tests show an improvement in her cancer. She’s shedding now so I mailed her hats. She fears loosing her hair because it means she has to tell Emmee and Allee about the cancer. We laugh about stuff but it’s far from funny.
I also mailed Haskell’s dragon hat and 3 hats to Lavonne. Her hair is coming out, too. fuck cancer. I’m sending a hat to another friend, and need to make a couple more.

My daughter asked me about the pizza job. I wasn’t able to do it. Why did I feel like such a looser when I had to say I couldn’t do it? I can’t stand for hours and they can’t accomodate a chair. Degenerative discs are no fun. Steve and I are going to change newspaper branches and see if we can get routes closer to home. I am going to list my gemstones on e-bay in small batches and see if I can get some of that money back.

Still waiting on potting soil to start the seeds – and time.
And V sent me a precious picture of Lex in the blue hat I made Haskell. I love that he is using it.

G came home happy and talkative from his theatre class. he got to see Singing in the Rain during class. His final monologue will be Scene One, Act 3 of Othello. He said “you know I will play a Moor.” And I asked if he knew what a Moor was. Yep. He did.


About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.
