If It’s Not One Thing…

It’s always another…the best laid plans and all that rot…

Sunday evening in the middle of the night I had another vertigo episode. It is always unnerving, especially in the night. It is the first time I have experienced it since my physical therapy eliminated it. They did warn me that it does recur in some percentage of patients and they do not know why. I think mine may have been stirred because of the high pressure we have been experiencing. I was experiencing sinus blockage, too, and they can be related in my experience.

I had to cancel my plans to have coffee with my friend for fear I shouldn’t try to traverse the winding roads across the mountain. I was really looking forward to seeing her, but hopefully we will reschedule soon. I still feel a little off kilter, so I am continuing to take it easy. Yesterday was a wash.

I am working on a fictional piece and I am finding the research so fascinating. So much so it is slowing down my writing. Just when I think I have learned enough to properly ground my piece, I discover another intriguing detail. This is the first historical fiction piece I have attempted and there is a certain obligation I feel to historical accuracy. For those who specialize in this genre, I salute you!

As promised here are a few photos of hubby’s kayak, built at the Wooden Boat School in Maine. These are just a very few of the steps in the process.

There is still sanding, more coats of epoxy and varnish, seat and footrest, hatch cover, etc., yet to finish.

In the next three days we are predicted to have more hot weather. I have enjoyed our brief respite from the heat. The ability to open the doors and enjoy some fresh air has really been nice. Our A/C has only come on once in the last week or so. It has been very pleasant sleeping weather.

We purchased some fall vegetable starts and replenished our herb garden. I think I enjoy a fall garden the most. It won’t be long until we are making hearty soups full of fresh green veggies.

I am trying to listen to an audio book for the first time in ages. I checked out the kindle version of Reign of Terror by Hillary Clinton and Louise Penny, but could not seem to get started. So, I am trying this to see how it goes. I am very picky about the person who reads an audio book so the jury is still out. I recently read Run, Rose, Run by James Patterson and Dolly Parton which I loved. It was a fun fast paced read for me. I also read The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams – recommended to me by my friend. As a lover of words, I truly enjoyed it as well!  It is a lovely historical fiction piece. Now, what are you reading?

There is not much else to write about so I will close for now. I am taking it easy again today. Hopefully this vertigo thing is behind me. I hope you all have a good day.
