Saturday, September 25, 2021 — I’m disappointed in myself today. I failed to remember the passing of my father-in-law on September 23, 2014. I dream about him all the time, but didn’t connect the other night’s dream of him with the fact that he’d passed on that very day. I think I posted a comment to Ellen’s blog https://ellenshead.blogspot.com/2021/09/a-break-in-weather-queen-of-night.html that my dreams often had deceased relatives in them. I was also remiss in the number of grandchildren my niece has. Amelia happens to be her third grandchild. I feel it’s a cop-out, but all I can think is that my lack of memory is because I’m so very focused on our life situation now. Maybe it’s that I’ve always been bad about remembering dates and so to let such a sad date go right by isn’t totally unexpected. Still, it makes me disappointed.
Our air is so smoky right now that I can’t begin to think of going outside. From what the newspaper says, it’ll remain smoky through the weekend. We’ve been sleeping with the bedroom windows open at night and the a/c turned off. I’m going to have to go turn it back on because I’m still smelling a bit of the smoke.
We binge-watched “The Stranger” on Netflix last night, finishing the last episode at midnight. The intro music is almost identical to Bosch, which is, I believe, another of Netflix’s special series. We loved Bosch and almost binge-watched it when we discovered it. We found a new series of Bosch on Prime Video, but it wouldn’t play so gave up trying and went back to Netflix. I don’t know why but we have a really difficult time playing Amazon/Prime video on our t.v. Netflix does fine, but their selection is poor anymore.
Not much else to report so will close this with blessings to all. Be safe, take good care of yourself and remember to tell those you love that you love them.
