Good morning All. Coffees on.

Recommended Posts

KymmieL

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?

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,

Timber Wolf🐾

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!

      There’s no requirement to disclose that you will be transitioning. It’s not your hiring manager’s business, nor the lady at the front desk, nor the owner. When you are ready to transition you may do so in states with protections for trans people. There’s a misconception that you’re doing your employer or future employer or hopeful employer wrong by “hiding” your trans status and future transition plans. It doesn’t matter legally or morally. You don’t owe any corporate or private or public institution of alerting them to your plans. Your transition is irrelevant and distracting to the point of the interview. You are consuming the company’s time during an interview. Keep the focus on your qualifications, personality and technical abilities and general competency to fill a need and turn that company a profit.
    • Alexxiss
      It depends on what you’ll present as. Since you’ll be presenting as male then there’s no need to inform them of your trans status at any point of the hiring/interview process. If you plan on transitioning in a year or six months or even 2 months then just be prepared to contact HR once you’re ready to come out to your coworkers and require people call you your chosen name. This way you can avoid unlawful discrimination pre employment as its nearly impossible to prove discrimination on the basis of anything in hiring without a consistent proven track record of certain well qualified minority applicants otherwise denied employment. Usually you can begin presenting as your gender identity without documentation. Another woman here said her job required legal paperwork for them to honor the name change at all. Most people will find their company will honor a name change in email, verbal address, and memos without documentation. Mind you alot of forum members come from all across the globe, so check your laws and company policy.

      I had a lot of bad once, but i had one fun one I was cleaning one of long time customer house. She is a wonderful woman. I been fully out to all my clients for well over 2yrs. She was on the phone with her daughter and  the conversation want like this "Alex is here." she look over at me "I mean Lexi is here. He such a great guy."  Again she looks over at me " I mean she sucha great guy, NOT a GUY.. a Girl. He is such a great Girl." She look over at me again her face a little red " Jesus f chirst!!! SHE IS A SHE  not he, and I love how hard and special he make me feel." she look at me again her face was all red. I could not stop laughing., I yell out " Veronica just hang up the phone before we both  have a heart attack." Love that woman. and when i get  down that moment always make me laugh

But i have no problem with the coast of the surgeries , cause Medical with cover most it.  It's the coast after....The time off from my business, The coast of recovery..the little things which eventually be come one big thing. Ty again for your support. Totally cool
    • Lexi C
      Teri  Mary i agree with you both. When I every I am in a Lesbian bar or Gay Bar in noho or West Hollywood..I feel super uncomfortable. Alexxiss Dig that Quote . Cause to be honest that exactly how i feel. I trying just be a cutie version of my real gender
    • VickySGV
      The reference I found was for injectable.  
    • Alexxiss
      “I found this in the Pinned thread on the Transgender Forum, titled “Problematic Language.”   “I think one of the big issues comes from within the community itself.  "Boy mode"  "Girl mode"  "boy brain" "girl brain"  "Target Gender" "Preferred Pronouns" and so on. We are not becoming our gender.  We ARE our gender.  We're (some of us) just trying to be cuter versions of our gender “   At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how much you pass and to who. It’s about finding people who acknowledge your competency as a human being to analyze yourself and conclude your gender, even if that means you are one of the other 65.

      Thank you @Jani, after some consideration I came to the same conclusion. I have been on this journey much longer and need to remember that others are still acclimating to the “new normal” 😏

      I was just about to post this when I saw that @Jani just did, but I'll say it again anyway: Call the GIC now!  The wait lists in the UK are so insane that it will be a couple of years before you get in.  If you call now, you'll have your foot in the door.  That way, if you decide that you are indeed trans, you're on your way and will have less time to wait.  If you decide in the meantime that you are not trans, you can always withdraw from the wait list.

      I bumped into a coworker while opening the door for the restroom. I was going in and he was coming out. He backed up against the door and said “woh I thought you were going to grab my crotch.” I know he thinks I like guys. I was taking back by that comment. My male ego almost kicked in because I felt like telling him to F off. But I kept it cool and just laughed it off. I don’t know how much longer I can ignore his ignorant comments.   Next time I will be ready with a arsonal of comebacks. There is only so much I can take before I snap. I treat people with respect and kindnesses and expect the same in return. No one else at work has a issue with me and I am grateful. He better watch it , these hormones make me fiery...lol 
    • Jani
      What I wrote wasn't earth shattering news.  You've written a bit here and it seems obvious to me which direction you need to move.  Call you GIC, the wait list is long I've heard.  It may be a year, and you can always cancel  if things change.  In the meantime talking with others is good but be aware of those who have their own agenda.  You make all the decisions in this.  Its about you and no one else.     Jani

      thank you so much, i really needed to hear something like that to be honest. i keep having doubts like “what if the dysphoria isn’t strong enough”, which i think is mostly due to my generations obsession with the dysphoria debate/ tumblr discourse, along with the thing where people get accused of being “trans trenders”. which makes me wonder if i’m just gnc cis and confused because my dysphoria isn’t particularly strong and it sort of disappears and reappears.   i think i’m gonna wait a little while before i take any action, since i want to be 100% sure that i’m trans and that this is the right thing for me to do before i take any lore steps. i think talking about it on forums like this is really helpful, so thank you to you all! i really needed to hear other people’s opinions on this because my brian was just in a gender tangle.   for now i’m just gonna work through my thoughts/ emotions by chatting on forums like this and talking to my bf about it. just to make sure i entirely know that that i’m trans.
