I thought about having a thread. For us users to have a social thread to say, good morning. Maybe say what is planned for the day. Working, going shopping, a Dr's appt anything. Even how you slept. Just keep it social and within the rules set forward. I'll start.

 

Good morning, have yet to get really going this morning. Got to get my breakfast and meds in me. Unfortunately no HRT, (yet,:D) Working closing. but off tomorrow.

Have a great day all.

 Oh my goodness I think the smell of coffee might’ve just woken me up ! I really should get myself ready and not sleep in today, there is a glass artist event here in town that I want to go to with a friend so I guess I’ll just nurse this cup for the next five minutes while I nibble on some avocado toast  before I go get in the shower ? ️

Just finished my second cup.  I'll walk the dog now.  Probably off to the orchard to get some apples and then to the woods to work on some maple syrup tubing.  I'm hoping to expand our operation a bit before it gets very cold. 

 

Hugs,

Coffee has me musing about today. The rain returned on schedule, fall is here. I like the fact I don't have to do anything today, I may go for a walk, cook a nice breakfast, and then see what happens. Enjoying life, so grateful for what we have.

Sorry, all I am late posting. Woke this morning to blue skys and took the motorcycle out for a ride to the Snowy range for Ice cream and fall colors. A little painful though as I slipped and slid down the stairs yesterday. I gave myself a nice rug burn on my arm and a nice bruise on my tailbone. Coffee was great this morning.

Charlize, I loved to go the cider mill for hot apple cider and a cake doughnut. I wish there was one around here.

Back to normal this morning, and have already had my breakfast coffee. That sounds painful Kymmie. I remember doing the same. Better than gravel rash though. That can be nasty! I still have some more apples to pick although my small store if full. It has been a good year for them, but I have noticed quite a few rotting. I wonder whether it is the mild weather. They normally store all winter well, and I am finsihing them off six months later. Fingers crossed!

Morning all, coffee brewed (an Italian Expresso coffee) and I am waiting for it cool down a bit.  It was a very restless night.  I turned out the lights at nearly midnight and was wide awake shortly after 2:00 A.M.   Normally reading a few pages will put me back in sleep mode, but this time round it didn't work.  I read for nearly two hours with nary a sign of drowsiness.  I suppose at about the time when I really need to get going, the desire for sleep will hit me like a ton of bricks.  

 

All the best,

On my second cup this morning.  Trip to the orchard yesterday was great.  Took a grandson and my wife.  We got a peck of pixie  crunch apples.  A small, crisp, slightly tart apple that is a favorite here.  We did get a donut as well as a cider slurpy.  Later i worked in the woods on syrup lines and picked 5+ lbs of chicken of the woods mushrooms some of which we enjoyed on pizza last night.  Have to fix a plumbing problem this morning in the basement but hope to get back to the woods as well.  Need that coffee.  Another cup?

 

Hugs,

Good morning everyone!

Cup of coffee in hand, reading posts here. I like this thread!

 

Unfortunately, I'm coming down with a cold. Feeling rather miserable and tired I'm  afraid. 

 

Beyond that, it's my sweet little cat Gizmo's 11th birthday today!?

So happy birthday Gizmo!?????

 

Lots of love,

I was away at a family wedding this weekend so I got up a bit late this morning.  I've had coffee and an english muffin and I need to get out and mow the lawn before the rain comes this afternoon.  

 

Happy birthday Gizmo!

Good morning all! Had a cup of coffee and a bowl of Cheerios before getting ready for work. It's 51 degrees and cloudy/ rainy here and I sure wish I could have slept in!

 

Happy birthday Gizmo!

Well this is a fun thread. I had a full day and am about to go to bed. I have my home group AA meeting this morning. We have a business meeting after the meeting and I'll be disclosing to the group I am transgender and about to transition to Julie on a full time basis in 2 weeks. I'll update on my morning later today. 

Hugs & Smiles

Up and had breakfast with coffee as normal. I hope I have a bit more drive than yesterday as I got little done, although I did manage to get my (electronic) resistors sorted. After a while the little colour striped bands drive you crazy particularly with the dull weather making the light worse for seeing  ? . I think it is the onset of the cooler weather that is slowing me down but it's good to relax now and then.

Well i'm about to get a second cup.  Happy birthday Gizmo.  Best of luck Julie.  Enjoy the Alps RGA.  I used to love Earl Grey.

The plumbing was frustrating.  Fixed one leak.....found another so i never made the woods.  Hopefully today i'll be down there setting up for sugar season.  Tonight i go to my AA home group who i came out to over 6 years ago.  

 

Hugs,

Ah, is there anything better than that first sip of freshly brewed morning coffee?  One of life's simple pleasures.  I actually slept the whole night through, an increasingly rare occurrence.  I had in mind to mow the lawn and start putting the yard to bed for the approaching winter months, however, the predicted cloudy but dry day didn't materialize.  Instead a cold drizzle greeted the morn.  Perhaps the caffeine will help me formulate Plan B.  

 

Have a great day, fellow java consumers.

 

All the best,

Morning all! I'm working n my morning cup of joe. Can't have more than one though, or I'd have to spend half my day peeing! Not good while at work, giggle. However the thought of getting paid to pee is an interesting thought. "nuf said!

Another dreary day here in the midwest, third one in a row. At least it's dry.

Hope everyone will have a wonderful day.

 

Hugs,

Brandi

Good morning all.  Love your new avatar Brandi!  I just finished breakfast and will be heading off to my electro appointment soon.  I fully relate to the coffee concern!  It's rainy here.  I didn't get to mow the lawn yesterday before it started.  Hopefully by weeks end!

Thanks Jani for the positive review on the avatar. I am working like this now and have shelved the wig for good, except for really bad hair days!

Well up early today even on a day off I have to get up early. My wife's car is having issues and need to take her to work. Also where the car is. Plus it's 20 miles out of town. I pulled the battery and alternator to test. Alt is good waiting on the battery.

Had a little joe on the way out. Just haven't gotten another since I got home.

 

It looks like I really did a number on my rear. I must have seriously bruised something, it still hurts. Getting up from sitting is a painful adventure. Have a good day all.

Morning all!

It's  off to the hardware store today  to look for weather stripping to seal my door against cigarette smoke from across the hall. I abhor cigarettes. Oh well. Will also be getting Gizmo's birthday present today, only one day late. Also got a nap planned later on.

 

Lots  of love,

  The mornings rolling right along, one cup down ️ 

 Washed all the dishes from last night, made my typical breakfast of avocado toast and two egg omelette and enjoyed my cup of Folgers! I’ve been drinking Folgers since I was two years old nothing else tastes quite right,  even though I enjoy many other types of coffee I always come back to simple family staple...  I have one of those little filter baskets for my Keurig, it would most likely prefer a course ground coffee but I find that hard to find. It leaves a little bit of silt in the cup, But I have found I actually like it a little bit, halfway into the cup a little swirl keeps everything normalized and I’ve begun to enjoy this odd little ritual!

      See at this point idk what’s real feelings and what’s my ocd getting to me. I can say I found out I have feelings for my coworker who is a guy(amab and straight). When I think of him and wanting to be happy… it brings me to tears 
    • KathyLauren
      Sorry to hear that.  Take some allergy meds.   I had the same experience when my brothers and I were cleaning out our father's house.  He hadn't cleaned since his wife died 9 years earlier.  This was long before covid so I didn't have a mask handy.  Fortunately, his neighbour was a nurse and gave me a mask to wear.  Definitely mask up if you have to go back there.

      Well, just when I thought I'd turned a corner....the bus hits me.   I've been working with an aging aunt and uncle for almost two years. My uncle was in memory care nursing and passed away last October. My aunt was in and out of the hospital, rehab and her apartment for most of that time. I finally convinced her that she needed to be in skilled nursing and moved her to a facility close to us.   Since then I've been working to get her apartment cleared, cleaned and transition her to Medicaid.    I've spent the last two days at her apartment - a 1.5 hour drive each way - having it cleared and then cleaning it. SHe just wasn't able to clean for herself and the apartment was filled with dust and grime. Last night, after breathing it all in all dal I think I set off an allergy and I have been sick as a dog. Sore throat, congestion, tired, I've slept almost all day and, as my wife has told me several times, I look like hell.   This is really the first I've sat with my Surface all day...and I'm in bed.   Tuesday, I drive back down to have the final inspection and turn in the keys.   Our puppy is now 14 weeks and almost 30 pounds. She had a vet visit on Thursday for her distemper booster and the vet said she is "perfect." She's totally house trained and on her way out of the Velociraptor phase. What a doll she is.   Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!!

      This is such wonderful news for you both from being able to start on testosterone and for your parents hearing and supporting you. Good luck and keep in touch!! We're here if you need us.

      My daughter sent me this t-shirt.  So I wore it to our local Pride Picnic.

      Wonderful news, hon.  I'm very happy for you.  You will make great progress very soon.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie
    • Willow
      Glad you are going to a Pride picnic.  I never know in advance what I am going to get to do.  And by the time I do know it’s too late to sign up.  Working is the pits but I am making progress towards being able to quit once and for all, again.  I just don’t know what I’ll be able to do after I’m no longer working because I had to give up all the things I liked to do.   the only way I get a particular day off is to schedule way in advance such as my doctors appointments and church things.  Which reminds me I have some future events I need to put on my need off schedule for October and January.     het @Mmindy just a little play humor there.  Our dog is getting older but as a puppy she was all but housebroken when we picked her up. Just needed to learn a new environment and we had to learn her puppy signals.  We put in an underground fence and she learned to recognize the warning without getting zapped.  When we took her to obedience school she was a quick learner for all but the reason we took her, don’t jump up on people. Learned to Use a bell.  Learned to open lever doors to go out and in.  Still doesn’t like going out in the rain.  Taught us how to interact with her sign language.  And has been a very smart dog.  Her sister is still kept in a cage when no one is home.  Sweetie doesn’t even have one.   best dog ever but will be our last dog when her life ends.  Best to end being dog parents with your best dog.  And yes she is a family member, not a pet.   Willow

      That’s fantastic news! I know this can be such a hard situation, but it sounds as though you dealt with it brilliantly. Congratulations, and much respect to your parents for listening.
    • Vidanjali
      @hormonedifficientin2ways congratulations! Perhaps it's hard to say which is most affirming, getting to start T or having had your parents finally validate you. Two different realms of euphoria. Best wishes.

      @Willow since my wife and I drink different coffee blends, and the puppy gets me up way earlier than I had become accustomed to in retirement. He and I are up and sharing the morning alone, because the wife still sleeps in.    Parker had the last of his puppy vaccinations and wellness check up yesterday weighing in at 24.2 pounds at 13 weeks old. He’s responding well to training and is mostly potty trained. We’re using the sleigh bell method for marking the door to get outside, and waiting for him to bark at the door before letting him in. He understands not to rush the door or gate when we’re moving through them.    Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
