Seems like I am taking pictures every time the clouds break up and I can see some blue sky.
80s and rain are still on the menu for a couple more days. Then we'll switch it up to 70s and rain--LOL! We do see some scattered sunshine. See--I have the proof. ;)
There has also been some scattered doodling on the menu.
Trying out new marker pens and using old ink pens.
Added some words--"loose"...
...and "free", too. You might have to click on the pictures to easier see what I have done so far--if your eyes are as bad as mine are. ;)
Playing with the markers--at least how I am doodling--has been the more calm repetitive stuff I enjoy. I figure I can mix together my attempts at looseness and my good old controlled stuff. Maybe as I go along it will get more loose and less controlled? Or maybe I will find my own style combining the two? That's more likely, I think. ;)
I still lose a percentage of comments made on my blog--after I have read and approved them--that never show up in my email inbox so that I can reply to them. But I get more than I lose. And I do read each and every one of them before they get posted, so I am not missing reading any of them. It's just annoying when I have read one that cracked me up and I'd love to respond to it or if it is a new person I'd love to personally thank for stopping by. Not much I can do about it.
I tried turning off having the approval and then turning it back on again and that didn't fix the problem, so I doubt it is going to change now since it's been doing this since the switch in April. So, please don't be offended if I don't always reply to a comment with a personal email, okay? I appreciate each and every comment and read them all! :):)
And speaking of comments...
When I make a comment on certain blogs that I know those people reply in their comment box (like I used to do) and not with an email--well, I used to be able to click the box to get the follow up email notifications. Ever since the switch, it has never, ever, ever worked for me once on any blogger blog--period. So I have to try to remember which people reply to every comment right in their own comment section (there are only a few of you who do this) and make a trip back later to read your reply. Any of you who only occasionally respond in your comment section, I will probably never see it. :( :( Sorry.
I do miss chatting with some of you who have word verification, but I still read your blogs. :)
Been clouded over today. Dark again and I slept in later. I am still not used to the fact that I have stayed on days since I started taking the melatonin the end of February!! Despite having nights I haven't slept well at all and whether I sleep 5 hours or 10 hours...I've stayed on day hours!! It is like a friggin' miracle!! I've had the sleeping around the clock problem for years! I think I have only been to bed once after 1am--and it was just a little after, if I recall. No later than 1:30am. That's amazing!! I take the 10mg pill at 8pm and I am in bed usually between 11pm and 12:30am. Not sure why it works or why it takes several hours for it to work--but that is how it works for me. I am absolutely thrilled!
Miss Karma, on the other hand, has never had one lick of trouble sleeping...any time, any place.
I called my dad to wish him a Happy Father's Day. Dad's 91 and his new hip is working well--no more pain. He and Mom (83) just drove up from Florida to their summer spot in Minnesota. They'll probably be up to visit us later this summer before they drive back to Florida. I'm so glad they are both doing well. :)
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.
