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.

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!

      I have had a couple of super high readings several years ago, and they went down after a seeming peak at one point.  My endo went so far as to see if the Lab had had problems because it fell like a rock in a week.  Other than lab error the real reason was never determined.  Sorry to say.
    • Carolyn Marie
      Follow-up: Detroit PD and prosecutors have arrested and charged a suspect in this crime.  A motive was not divulged.   Kudos to Detroit PD for the quick work on this case.   https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2018/12/10/charges-filed-slain-detroit-transgender-woman/2273251002/   Carolyn Marie

      First off, i want to assure everyone that I have talked to my endo about this, and she is concerned and pro-active, and I feel confident that she knows what's up.  Just the same, I'm curious if anyone has had experience with this rather, um, unusual problem.   I had what should have been routine blood tests for T and E, as well as sex hormone biding serum globulin.  Well, the results were startling; the SHBSG was almost three times the highest range figure, and the estradiol LC/MS was also three times higher than the reference range high point.   I've been on HRT for nearly 8 years, and this test, and the one 6 months ago, are the first to show that kind of result.  The doctor asked me to stop the estradiol for a week and get retested.  If it doesn't go back to something approaching the normal range, the doc is going to start looking for reasons why my body is producing that much excess estrogen. The risk of not getting it under control is obvious; much higher risks for DVT's and damage to my thyroid gland.   So, anyone have results like that, and if so, what was the cause?  Thanks, gang.   Carolyn Marie

      Guys I just ordered my first binder and I am super excited!!! There are a couple small details that I am worried about but I don't want to think of those right now 😁
    • RithiaAllen
      Thanks. That is the result of several years of training maybe more if you consider the four years of Clearanet playing in middle school and high school.

      Very good!!!  Have fun. 
    • Jani
      Well you could certainly order on-line.  JC Penney currently has some great prices on jeans, then add in a discount!   I like to try things on in the store but finding jeans (tall) can be hard when I look for something specific.  But this time I knew what size I needed so I ordered a few pairs.  Use the Size charts and read the comments to assess if they run large, small or true to size.  Use your hip measurement rather than waist to determine the size to order.      The other place is to look at thrift shops (not consignment, they can be pricey) or Goodwill.   I find a lot of neat things.     As to Undies, just go to Walmart or Target.  No one will care and you can get what you need.     
    • Shannon
      Thank you for your responses. Any suggestions on my current clothing issue?  
    • Carolyn Marie
      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Shannon.  I agree with colleagues re. your post.  Getting totally absorbed with being female and feminine is something most of us have gone through.  It can be wonderful to explore all the aspects of being a woman.  But it is best to take things one step at a time.  It is a marathon, not a sprint race.   Please have a look around the forums and comment or ask questions wherever you find an interest.  We're here to help.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Her story is like mine and had no regrets with her transition.She was lucky,had support from her two older brothers whom are still in her life.Mom had a tough time with it at first and her mom came around.Her dad was the with  her mom.We have a great friendship starting and invited me to go out with a couple of her friends Friday night whom are also transgendered.I said yes to it

      Sadie soon enough things will calm down in your head and life will get to a point of normalcy.  Trust me, you'll get there.   
    • Kirsten
      Yeah. People do definitely get sick of the adult teenager.  🤣 but I think it’s important for us all to do. You have to get it out of your system. And learn what’s good and bad for you. Nothing like squeezing a lifetime of learning into a couple years!
