cut for sadmadcat swearing about things Stuff back here got kinda out of hand while I was gone, in ways that aren't readily immediately fixable. *facepalm* The garden wasn't watered, in midsummer! The dishes weren't washed. My live-in partner is having SERIOUS bad brain weather in new and exciting ways. And we got mail saying basically 'congratulations we hate you and want to take away your health insurance', which I DO NOT want to discuss further at this time, but it'll give you an idea of baseline stress and ratchets on it. What else even?! Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck.

Why do I expect anything to function.

Okay. Deep breath. Good things.

It is a gorgeous sunny day with blue sky. And not too hot, amazingly!

I petted a cat and a catling on my walk, and photographed the catling and his shyer sibling while rassling, sunning, and chasing butterflies. Adorable x millions!

I feel physically good-ish, apart from being hungry, upset, tense, and something wrong with my shoulder - but I don't feel ill, which is good because it means I'm starting to get a handle on food and not-a-food. Also the stuff I put on bug damage seems to be helping. And I can have a shower when I want one. This is very good. And I am awake and not totally losing it or out of spoons. I'm ... not happy, but I'm not wrecked either. And I have water I can drink and food I can eat. That will do, dangit, because I'll make it do.

So many flowers in Portland, almost always! Roses are current, and many daisy-like things, and these enormous purple pointy flowers on vines.

You folks on the internet keep sharing lovely fiction and art and personal stories and virtual hugs, and it keeps me connected. Thanks.

Did I mention it is a really beautiful day?

flowers and dirt; one bunch white, one bunch red, a couple purple

Here are some flowers I took photos of yesterday. Kind of sad flowers because hot, though. (Taken right before I scraped myself off the sidewalk and gave up on photos for the day.)

I am glad of that. My previous tightlocked postโ€” I don't think you can see that oneโ€” was very upset , just a long string of as-big-as-possible uppercase curses on a bunch of things, vulgar and unoriginal, repeated and repeated. But now I've updated my earlier "Wish we had more of these" post with my transcript, and I'm feeling better.

Better get dressed and out to shop soon, I'm out of milk, about to finish just finished the raisins, and so on, and so on.

Thank you.
I've been procrastinating for days, and nearly all of today. It's too late to get my Rxes at CVS, but I really need groceries, so it's grab the purse (got meds & transit pass), wallet, grocery bags (some insulated), and lists, and out the door.

Drat! Forgot to get raisins... though how I could have juggled even one raisin more than the four bags I was carrying on the trolley, I can't imagine.

Cats at play sound fun to watch.

Could the purple pointy flowers on vines be clematis? They come in different colors and there are a lot over here.

Seattle appears to be having the kind of heat wave I moved up from San Jose to get away from.

Wishing you lots of beautiful things to look at.

We hate anyone who wants to take your health insurance away from you.

Belated hugs. We arrived in Calgary yesterday.
