View From My Window

Sunday, September 19, 2021 — We’re having some almost winter weather this evening. We have winds and chill and dark foreboding clouds!

I saw an advertisement online the other night for a sleep study. I submitted my name and contact information and got a reply the next day. I responded to that e-mail and have asked them to contact me by phone tomorrow afternoon. They’re apparently doing the study via Zoom and e-mail because of the COVID situation. I caught a few short but restful naps on the couch today–lulled to sleep by a football game on the t.v.! Robert was in on the computer playing Spider Solitaire (first time in months!) and came in to ask what the score was. I had to laugh as I wasn’t actually watching, I was only using it for sleep/white noise!

Looking over my notes on the various homes that have been listed for sale in Mountain Aires, I saw a note that said #123 is a 3 bedroom/2 bath home. I’m tempted to approach them tomorrow but Robert says we shouldn’t intrude. He is also concerned that his workbench won’t fit in a shed. I told him that he would have to buy a bigger shed. He shrugged and said, “I guess I could do that.” I keep forgetting my mantra of “Patience! Patience!” but will endeavor to maintain hope. As we get this place ready to be put on the market, I become eager for it all to be over with us in the new home and getting things put to right and organized.

I guess I was right the other night when I felt like we needed another blanket on the bed! LOL I think I’ll go change out the lightweight quilt for our heavier comforter. It might be early, but it might be just the thing for a good night’s sleep!

Be safe–the numbers of COVID cases is on the rise everywhere; and take good care of yourself. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them!

    I would take a chance and approach #123. You never know when someone might think about selling. Good luck with the sleep study.

    Yes, mam, we are taking care. I’m going to miss Comic Con this year because of the crowds. Did you call youur realtor about 123? Did you know our unit number is 234? LOL

      Oh wow… never put those numbers together!!! How cool would that be?? I think rather than calling the realtor I’ll just wing it (I’m basically fearless when it comes to making contact with total strangers). I would hope that there’s been enough time between the loss of their granddaughter for them to think about their plans for traveling. We shall see…

      I do too … it makes me think of Fall and baking. BTW, I agree about your decision to skip Comic Con this year. It’s just too risky at this point. Hopefully, next year will be better. One could hope.

    A warm blanket always does the trick.
