We're back on Sparrow as of Nov 5 or so. Spent my 1st week here in hospital with pneumonia. Still using O2 but 'they' say this is temporary. Plenty of cleaning to do after years of relative neglect: cat hair, roach sand and dirt in every crevasse and corner, nicotine coated walls. So'k. Awesome (from Dollar Tree) is just a great cleaner. I've already fixed some of the neglect: New sink drain, replaced faucet, replaced the power cord, tossed all the old cans left in the galley. Heck, don't even recall all the small chores. Safe to say, we're livable again. The Kittehs are beginning to play and roam the deck again. They were way in their shells in that house, trapped on the bed as they were. No rain for days. Temps middle 50s to upper 80s.
That all said, I was going to work on a little clock project but Lessa was using the parts pot for a pillow. She's gettin' quite a belly on her...
Ok, onto other tasks. Came up the companionway and had to smile:
Ahhh. Life's pretty good now. 9+ months sans a drink and a meetin' every day. Work to do around the boatyard that's fun, repetitious and keeps me around other folks. Making up for the last dozen years or so? No, today is a new day all on its own. Quote from sponsor that guides me now:
Explore and tend with kindness and integrity.
I've hesitated to post this. Who cares? Doesn't matter; I get to hear some of your stories and I appreciate them. I've been mostly quiet for the last year because I had little positive or good to say. That has changed as I've returned to this path and want to live again. There's at least good sunset pics to post from here.
