    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hey, Nesters!
    Slo, I just hate to hear how you are being treated. My niece has been married for nearly 3 years and has a one year old. She is having a time with her controlling, narcissistic husband. What a mess. Not sure what she will do, probably nothing, which is heartbreaking in itself. She is a wonderful person. He has all but extinguished her light. That’s no way to live. My heart goes out to you and her.

    I had a return trip to the eye surgeon, my left eye is wonky. It feels like there is a giant tear ready to fall…..there isn’t, I’ve checked, rubbed, dabbed and cussed. Additionally, the eye has a flickering/shimmering that is maddening. Perhaps the most disturbing is that when I’m reading, the next word I’m about to read is compressed (as if from pressure from a bubble, it’s curved like that). When I get to the word to read it, it’s full size, but the next word is compressed. The issue with this is that it gives one a feeling of motion when reading. The eye surgeon gave me a more potent steroid eye drop but there has been no improvement. It’s got me down, I must say. If you are a girl, you know that if you feel like you are about to cry, it doesn’t take long for your mood to shift into that mode in solidarity. I’m to call into his office on Wednesday to let him know how I’m doing. I imagine he will send me to a specialist. I’ll keep you posted.

    I got my covid booster about a week ago, so I’m happy for that.
    My chocolate arrived a couple days ago, so I will get busy. On Friday, I tried making a Santa and he broke so I need to get back on the horse and try again. Working with red chocolate is quite messy, it looked like an ax murderer had struck my kitchen. And looking at my hands, ut looked like I did it!

    Linda, those dogs are adorbs! I’m in love with Bob!
    Hugs to all! Byrdie

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Greetings Nesters,

    This whole day has gotten away from me, somehow! At least I’ve been busy & productive.

    Wags, I’ve noticed our county food bank is busier than ever. Went by there today & saw loads of foods being taken inside. I donate what I can to help but it worries me that people are so needy & I know a lot of them are the kids of the immigrant farm workers in the area.

    Slo, please go easy on yourself while you’re rebuilding your life. One day at a time comes to mind. Things will be different but not necessarily bad, right? I have to keep my thinking in the positive mode because I have a history of going dark & negative. It helps to stay in the light so to speak & we’ll be right there with you

    Byrdie, sorry about your eye problem. I haven’t heard that complaint before, I’ll have to do some redaing. I imagine it must be annoying to say the least.
    I hope you get your chocolate santa together. I’m aslo sorry about your niece’s situation. Why do men turn like that after the wedding?

    Hello to everyone & wishing a safe night in the nest for all.

    Lav - I somehow missed your comment about making the outdoor containers. Sounds fun! Glad you had a busy and productive day today.

    Byrdie - great to see you, and sorry to hear about your eye troubles. That sounds really frustrating and uncomfortable. I hope that a specialist is able to correct whatever is going on and bring you some relief. Back in the saddle with the chocolate Santa for sure! We will look forward to pics once you feel up to it.

    Slo - glad you're finally feeling better. Your mind and body have been dealing with a lot of stress and maybe it just caught up with you in the form of fatigue. Keep being gentle with yourself.


    Things are pretty good here. Tomorrow is our last dry day before a week or so of rain, so hopefully getting out for at least a short bike ride.

    Take care everyone!

    Greetings Nesters,

    Nice day here, sunny & dry & most importantly cool

    Wags, I hope you got your bike ride in before the rain appeared.
    We really enjoyed the class at Longwood Gardens & came home with two beautiful containers.

    Slo, I agree with Wag’s comment re fatigue. Long term stress upsets our natural balance , disturbs sleep & even the way we process our food & nutrients. The time for good self care is now!!

    Hello to the rest of the crew & wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!
