Saturday morning coffee thoughts: a new hope

It’s Saturday morning and the sun is shining. I’ve been awake since 5:30 am which seems to be the norm these days. A few weeks ago, I was proud of myself for getting up before 8 am every morning. Now, it seems I can’t sleep past 6. The days are getting longer and it’s bright…

Monday mood – there was cake, and I have regrets

It’s Monday morning (again, how does that keep happening?) and I just choked on my first sip of my coffee. I think it might be ‘one of those days’. It’s dark outside for this time of day and a little chilly. But the nice thing is that the days are getting a little longer and…

One year closer to 50

It’s Saturday morning and I’ve just sat down for my first cup of coffee for the day. The sky is clear outside and the sun is shining. It’s early for me, I woke up out of a deep sleep around 7:30 am and decided to get up for the day. Yesterday was my birthday and…

Recovery is a slow process

Just thought I’d write a quite update today. It’s Thursday afternoon and the temperature has dropped – a lot. It’s supposed to get to -30 over the weekend and it’s windy. Really windy. On Sunday, I had a bad fall as some of you know. I’m still hobbling around like a gimp. I know. I…

Saturday morning coffee thoughts – noticeable differences

It’s Saturday morning which is one of my favorite days. Saturdays are my days to catch up on housework, do some writing and practice the art of selfcare. That means it’s bath night, and I plan on coloring my hair later. It is long overdue. The greys are definitely coming out strong. It’s a little…

Saturday morning coffee and winter Olympic games

It’s Saturday morning and I’m munching on an orange after having a really high carb day yesterday. But the good news? I got a full six hours of sleep! The insomnia comes and goes. It’s part of the hypermobility. It usually only lasts a couple of nights then I crash for half a day and…

Rainy day moods – spring has sprung

It’s Saturday afternoon as I write this. It’s been raining non-stop since late Thursday night. I normally love the rain and storms but this kind of rain is depressing. It’s cold, dark and everything is soaking wet. But on the upside, the buds are coming in on the tree outside and it looks super pretty….

Hello Monday. We meet again.

So, right after I posted yesterday about how cold it was outside I noticed that my condo was freezing. The floor was ice cold which is odd because this unit has an electric heater. It’s usually too warm if anything. It’ s a good thing I reported the issue last night because it turns out…

Saturday night musings & a little opera pick me up

My sleep schedule has been out of whack. I was up most of the night with a sudden burst of energy that I haven’t felt in a while. Probably because I had a long nap after work. I decided to make the most of the pent up energy and started a massive cleaning job on…
