A Journal to impart knowledge and facts
July 22, 2015

I'm going to start today to record on a daily basis whatever happens to strike my fancy. So, it is a very cool breezy day. I just posted 5 short book reviews to The Monthly Reading Challenge. I'm suppose to put away some winter wood today from the woodpile outside but I'm playing hookey from work to write so starting this blog will get done.

I'm having a daily fight with a flock of English Sparrows that are trying to take over my barn. They are making a terrible mess so they have to go. I have destroyed several nests so far they don't leave but they get out of the barn when I am around. I'm just starting the fight so I guess I don't know how far I have to go to discourage them.

I'm trying not to spread myself to thin on WDC because I find so many things that are interesting here and I am trying to work on a new story. I really enjoy sitting at my desk with a cup of tea and reading blogs on WDC.

You have found that you can do something no one else can do. What is this special talent you have? Would it be considered a 'Super Power'? If you could have chosen this special ability, what would it be?

I have a to be incentive: Not a super power. Just an ability to keep moving on from day to day. Not even a singular power, since it's a learned response to the evil that assails us all. It is the encouragement I find, when I read the Bible. One of the prophets thought he was alone. God showed him a whole lot of other people just like him.

I read a lot of super hero comics in my younger years. Maybe these comics, even have a place in my mentors group. When people won't answer your why questions Children of my generation read comics. Don't forget Archie, Little Dot, little Lotta, and others.

I especially liked Wonder Woman. {link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Woman} I was interested to find she was created in 1941 Four years later in 1945; I was born in January. I liked her Lasso of Truth. And, the bracelets she wore, that caused ricochets to keep her safe.

A fawn just walked across my window. It is half grown, and without its mom. It is one that regularly visits the field out back , however, usually with it's mom. Doe season isn't in yet. It may be a young buck striking out on it's own.

OK. Have a good day.

Before I get involved in anything else read this;

Sometimes I just can't get here. I was doing really well then pay day hit. We get paid once about every 4 to 5 weeks by social Security. I'm wondering how many people out there have a difficult time keeping their budgets in order?

I need to get up and move around a lot during any day, so spending time at the computer can be difficult. Yes! I can get up and move around then sit back down and continue to write, but, I get involved mentally with the writing and forget to take a break.

Last week I wanted to set up my Christmas tree early. After Christmas 2019 I stored it in a closet and then the closet was sealed with insulation board. 2020 I just could not get into a Christmas spirit. My tree is 30 some years old. It was breaking up in 2019 so I thought I would have to replace it.

I decided to get it out see if it could be salvaged or throw it out and buy another one. The thought of buying another one was slowing me down. We did get into the closet and get out the tree. The closet was in good shape. But, it took more of the day to clean out a wall adjacent (this is and A-Frame, lots of wall space) to the closet, where insulation had been torn down, by the unwelcome squirrel a couple years ago. I cleaned the adjacent closet and put up the insulation. K was involved as well with getting to the tree and resealing the closet.

So, back to the tree, It turned out, that by removing the bottom two rows of the tree. and reinforcing the limb holders on the rest of the tree; I ended up with a perfectly nice tree in spite of it's age. It took one whole day to get the tree out. It took another whole day to do the repairs and set it up.

Yesterday, I managed to put on the lights. Over the years the pet population has ravaged the two bottom layers of limbs. Now, I have to watch one of the two cats, because she is trying to eat parts of the tree. I can only ask why? The tree is basically molded paper, wire, and plastic. .

At one time this was a 7.6 foot tree. Now it is about 6 feet tall. The last two days I'm catching up on my rest. I've always needed a lot of sleep. My energy levels keep me moving on in life. I still need lots of sleep. Thanksgiving is moving toward us at an unreasonable rate. I am shopping for Christmas on line. Kudo's to all the delivery personnel who are braving my long driveway to leave packages.

That plus cooking meals, doing regular dish clean up. Vacuuming rooms (even the robot needs the dirt dish emptied.) Keeping the laundry done and getting out once a day to walk to dogs if the weather isn't to rainy. I'm thinking of extending my dog walks even on rainy days. It is so nice to just get out side for a while each day.

I picked up the mystery prompt but, haven't written it yet. I have some ideas. If and when I write it I will post it just so you can read it. In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving.
