Winter Quarantine Kitchen

When they were closing the old grocery building to open the new one next door they didn’t want to bring any of the old food over, so they marked everything down to get rid of it. They marked the seafood down to criminally low prices. I swung by the seafood counter after my shift on …

Why CBD Should be Considered as a Viable Alternative to the Conventional Western Medicine Approach:

I think the image makes the case for itself but i’ll explain anyway. Without CBD i can’t get out of bed. I took one dose of CBD this morning and then sat down and made this list. It was a list of everything i needed to do today around the property. Every one of those …

Satsuma

I first bought the tree in the spring, right before i came down with covid. They were closing all the businesses down and they had given us a date by which all the non-essential businesses would have to shut their doors. I was working and didn’t often have the opportunity to go to the store …

Dreams of a Different Time

It was 1 in the afternoon before i got all my aches and pains under control and was able to get out of bed and do things that needed to be done. I tracked down the post office packages. I ground some oat flour. I made some gluten-free peanut butter cookies out of the flour, …

“I’ll be in the car.”

There’s a really pissed off bee in my 384 square foot 1 room house. I guess he didn’t like being blown around by the gusts outside. A front is rolling in. I took a look at it, assessed its temperament and identified it was not a wasp, hornet, or fly. That was all i needed …

A Trip to the Big City

i had to make a trip into the big city, a 2 and a half hour drive, in order to go to the dentist. Thanks to all the strange happenings of 2020 it had been nearly a year since i had been and it was time. It was a strange visit. There were all sorts …

2020 isn’t done with the surprises.

I didn’t realize that what i was dealing with was in all likelihood rheumatoid arthritis until my new job pointed out that i wasn’t making my time requirements and i began downing 2 monster drinks a day in order to meet my quota (which i then began doing). It felt like i had electricity in …

The Early Morning Shift

I woke up with a start. The alarm was not on. I must have turned it off. Exhausted in a way i had never known by my very physical new job, my actions couldn’t be trusted. I couldn’t for sure say that i hadn’t hit the snooze button all 13 times and slept many extra …

A Cold Winter Ahead

It was 36 degrees outside. The windshield of the suv was frosted over with ice. i slept with the space heater pointed towards my legs from across the room and it seemed to keep the chill off just enough for comfort. However, now that i was awake, the space heater had to be moved into …

A Long-Overdue Cleaning

When i injured my foot i realized that my ankle was probably not going to tolerate fifteen to twenty minutes of squatting in cramped conditions underneath roosting bars while i wore gloves and a mask to scoop shavings into a trash bag with my hands. The tray was meant to slide in and out from …
