I have picked a photo taken on a nice warm day.
Hoping it would make me feel warmer.
Jasmine started bouncing around at her normal walking time.
I had to take her to the door and show her it was raining.
Now she is sulking on her bed.
I can’t wait to get into MY bed.
I am not enjoying my trip to work in the mornings.
Pitch dark and raining.
And, we have rain forecast right through to Sunday.
The trip down the highway is bad enough but the road to my office is the pits.
Most of the street lights are not working.
There are buses and trucks and taxies.
Whoever designed the traffic lanes was either drunk or squint.
The lanes wander all over the place.
There are a couple of nasty potholes.
They have not painted the white lines since Pa fell off the bus.
You often have to drive by memory.
On the upside I am wide awake by the time I have navigated the three or so kilometres.
I am taking my Mom to the doctor on Thursday.
She is starting to lose the plot.
She repeats herself all the time.
She has always been an intelligent person but now she is getting things all wrong.
I fear that she has the onset of dementia.
My poor Stepdad.
He is also very worried about her.
Today I discovered that she has been buying sleeping tablets every week.
I have had to phone the chemist and ask him not to supply her anymore for the next three months.
Mex and I went up the new shopping mall this afternoon.
We bought two packets of candied dry fruit.
I have eaten almost a whole packet.
What can I say, it is cold.
I like them.
A good thing I have stocked up on toilet paper.
I have a feeling I am going to need it.
