I call it working knowledge…all of the encounters, judgements, observations and a lifetime of the resulting lessons that I draw from over this lifetime aid me in traversing through this human experience as I navigate the cube I live in.
I choose the word CUBE here…like ice cube. Throw an ice cube in a glass of warm water…it eventually melts into something else….liquid form…but while in the glass together with other cubes, we trust and rely on each other’s energy to sustain life as an ice cube a little longer. Eventually though, we morph into another form…water….liquid…we have no idea where or how our journey continues… nor do we have any control….in that moment, we are BEING an INFINITE drop of energy….a drop of water.
Two weeks and 5 days since my nephrectomy, I woke up in my favored sleeping position – on my left side. It was just two days ago I whined to myself that if I could just turn over on my left side I could go to sleep. This past week I’ve also been waking up in the morning a little nauseated and with no appetite…throw in a little dizziness throughout the day, I may be dehydrated. It seemed I was drinking a lot of water but when I got on line I realized that I was not drinking 1/2 my body weight in ounces…and there is no way I’m going to share with you how many ounces that should be. So…to my fellow nephrectomy peeps…drink up.
Against my better judgement, he and I went to the auction Friday night. I was pretty tired from doing mostly nothing but wanted to get out of the house. I realized just taking a shower, doing my hair and face that I was tired but there were things to buy in my future!
I got two of these. Made in Italy…I’m assuming tole…candle holders…I love them so much I can’t stop looking at them….and I got them for a fraction of what they are worth…It is probably going to require a wall redo…but so worth it…and I just know he agrees.
and this huge brown crock. This thing is huge and heavy. I could probably use it to make a year of sauerkraut for the family…hahahaha…or I could use it for a decoration.
He’s golfing today in a tournament…I have the house to myself…need to get laundry done…he worked hard on the camper yesterday – it is clean and ready to go. I’m content. Life is good.
Until next time…..
