Another Night Sleepless In Seattle

Good Morning, World from Seattle. It is just barely after three o’clock in the morning here in Seattle. I am extremely tired and it is the second night in a row where I haven’t slept very well. Tonight, I kept busy in hopes to get tired enough to go to sleep. Of course cuddling with my cat, Billie was a great help with my anxiety about not being able to sleep.

So, I started out with cross stitching. I am doing a stamped crossing stitching so I can learn and hopefully move on to counted cross stitching. I am crossing stitching a cat. I love cats. It’s a complicated stamped cross stitch but I’m okay with that. I am looking forward to the challenge of this stamped cross stitching cat. It is going to be beautiful when it is done. The next thing I did was painting by number. I am doing a scenery of a mountain and a lake. It’s coming right a long. The painting is nice and relaxing. I then colored a mandala. Mandala’s are a way to bring calm and peace to me. After doing my arts and crafts stuff, I started reading a holiday book. Actually it is a Christmas book. The book is called ” The Paper Bag Christmas” by Kevin Alan Milne. So far the book is good. After reading I did about a chapter of math in “Basic Math and Pre Algebra for Dummies.” Doing all this has helped me become hopefully tired enough to get some sleep.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading blog. Good Night, Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Very Little Sleep Last Night

Good Morning, World!!! I didn’t get much sleep last night and I am not sure why. In fact it is almost eight o’clock in the morning in Seattle and plan on going back to bed. I did plan on what I am going to do today besides a work meeting online this evening.

I am going to be waiting on some packages from Amazon. I am also planing on reading a holiday book as well as doing a holiday jigsaw puzzle as I listen to be listening to music. I am also am going to to be doing Math for Dummies. I know doing Math for Dummies sounds lame but I would like to learn more about math and be efficient in my math skills. Good back to the Amazon order I am accepting some crafting and artsy stuff to do to keep myself busy during the winter months

I think I am going back to sleep for a few more hours. I have a wonderful work week everyone.

Hopes in Getting Back Into Building Structure in My Life

Good Afternoon World, from the wonderful city of Seattle. Before I go on to discuss what I would like to, I just want to let you know how unusual the weather has been here in Seattle. First and fore most Seattle is known to have lots of rain and wind in the middle of October but not this year. In fact this October has been the driest October in recorded history Seattle has experience. Finally today it’s drizzly and breezy which is a good thing.

On the good thing note, I got a job. A job that is only twelve hours a week and not full time. I may want a full time job but right now a job is job not how many hours it is a week. I’m working at an employer I used to work at and am grateful for that. My supervisor is supper awesome and funny as hell. I also like the fact that he is direct with his communication. In fact I am looking forward to him being my supervisor.

On a different subject and I’ve brought this up two or three times before but I will be doing “workbooks” on various topics with the for “Dummies.” The first two I will be be working on is “U.S History for Dummies” and I am sure they will be missing many important things in history as well a misleading in other parts. The other Dummies book is “Basic Math and Pre-Algerbra for Dummies.” I am doing this to better educate myself and hopefully learn something.

Now on to the blogging part of all this. I’ve notice I haven’t blogged as much and want to blog on the regular basis. Yes, I know I’ve done and said this before but this time I will do want I can and what it take to regularly blog.

Now on to a subject I highly like to do which is household chores. I’m not a big fan of them However it is something that needs to be done on the regular basis and plan to schedule to do it in my planner along with the other things I need and/or want to do.

Let’s get on to a less boring topic which is more fun topic of my cat Billie. Billie is just as cute as he can be. I love my cat Billie so much and I am so blessed that he chose me to be his human. I am grateful that he is in my life.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It means a great deal to me from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it wasn’t for you reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, thank you again from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Keeping Busy to Stay in a Neutral State of Mind

Hello, World from Seattle. It has been one of them days where trying to be in a neutral state of mind has been challenging. It has been challenging due to some negative shit, I have experienced the last few weeks. Yes, I would prefer to be in a good state of mind however I will and am more than okay to be in a neutral state of mind.

I started off the day cuddling with my cat Billie. In fact that appears to be an everyday thing. An everyday thing I don’t mind especially since it is how I start my day. I am more than sure that Billie enjoys starting his day cuddling with me.

After cuddling with my cat, Billie, I worked on a Mindfulness workbook. As I was working on the mindfulness workbook, I realized that my morning cuddles or any cuddles with Billie is mindfulness. So, I guess I do mindfulness everyday as I cuddle with Billie. Even though I do mindfulness daily, I am still going to work on the mindfulness workbook daily till it is finished.

I, of course did all that before getting ready and going to volunteer at PAWS Cat City. I really enjoy volunteering at Cat City. In fact it is one of the highlights of my week. Even though I have my own cat, I enjoy spending time with the cats at Cat City. In fact I enjoy spending time with the kittens and the senior cats. On that note, spending time with the kittens reminds me why I prefer the adult and senior cats especially to have one as a family member.

When I arrived home after volunteering I had packages at my door from Amazon. One of which was For Dummies book for basic math and pre-algerbra. So, I worked on for about a half an hour and the next half an hour I worked on my other For Dummies book which is on U.S History. I’m still waiting on two more educational Books for Dummies. I am doing the For Dummies books because I have forgotten most of what I learned or I never learned it in school.

After “educating myself,” I decided to be creative. First I did some art work. The art I am doing is coloring a poster for my mom. After coloring, I decided to do some crafting by doing latch hook. I am really enjoying doing the latch hook. I am currently doing a latch hook with a cat on it and it is to wipe your feet with before entering your home. I am not sure what I’m going to do with it when I am done with it.

Well, I’m looking at the time and it is time for dinner. That means it is time to end this particular blog post and go eat. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. That is why it is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. Again, thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Still Awake Early on a Saturday

Good Morning, World!!! It is now 6:03 in the morning in Seattle. As I stated in my last post I was doing some math. I realized I didn’t have the most up to date Books for Dummies when it comes to Basic Math and Pre Alegerbra so I ordered the most updated one. In fact the last few days, I’ve ordered a hand full of Books for Dummies on various subjects. I’m doing this at forty plus years old because I want to know my shit even if I might not have someone to discuss it with. Just knowing that I know something is satisfying enough for me even if I want to discuss it with other people.

I hope next week I will start my education with the Books for Dummies. I just really want to do something productive in my spare time especially since I am currently unemployed. In fact I hope to continue to do it in my spare time when I do finally get some work.

Other things I hope to do in my spare time might have to wait till I get a job like getting back into the comic book world because he needs lots of money for that. In fact it is a hobby I haven’t done in a while due to Covid-19 which sucked. On that not other hobbies I have continued to do on and off is art work by way of coloring and painting. I’ve also occasionally done stamped cross stitch and will get more into it so I can do counted cross stitch. Something that I am now just picking up and teaching myself to do latch hook. You can do pillows, rugs, mats to wipe your feet on at the front door and other such things.

On that note, I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, thank you again from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Way Up Too Early on a Saturday Morning

Good Morning, World from Seattle, Washingtion. Right now it is 2:57 in the morning here in Seattle. To me it’s a little too early to be up at this time on Saturday morning. I have been having trouble sleeping lately and the insomnia isn’t helping as well as the traumatic events I have recently experienced.

One of the first things I did when I woke up was wish Billlie, my cat, a good morning. I then went down stairs to the community room and got me a group soda from one of the vending machines. I then came back up to my apartment and turned on a podcast about philosophy while giving Billie some attention. The podcast I am listening to as I write this particular blog post as well when I gave Billie some attention is Philosophize This. I am learning a great deal from listening to this podcast. In fact I feel like I’m getting an education from this philosophy podcast.

After finishing this particular blog post and listening to the current episode of the podcast, I most likely will be doing some math. Yes, I know doing math when it is not for school and/or work is weird but I want to be able to better myself. Yes, math is a way I want to better myself and I know it is unheard of when you are in your forties.

I guess listening to a podcast on philosophy and doing math is a way of educating myself. I’m not educating myself for other people but for myself. Plus, the more I learn the more I can talk about the subject if it is brought up in a conversation.

I do not have much more to say in this blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. Again, thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

My Go to Wellness Tools When Things are Either Going Well or Not so Well & Sometimes in the Middle

Hello, World!!! Things haven’t had been very good lately but I’m handling them okay. I lost my new job because I wasn’t the right fit and I agree. It turned out to a be mutual agreement and “considered a lay off.” This lay off I’m okay with. The first lay off I wasn’t okay with it due to the fact of how it was handled.

I am putting in applications and going to interviews in the career of my choice as a peer specialist. I have also been applying to old employers I tolerated even the ones that were overnight or twelve plus hours long. Having a job helps me a great deal.

Even though things may not be going so well my cat, Billie has been a huge help. Hell, he is a huge help when things are both going well and not so well. Having an animal around had been quite helpful for me.

Another thing I have found helpful in both the good times and not so good times is volunteering. Volunteering at an animal shelter has been and continues to be quite rewarding. Helping cats find their furrever homes and people a new family member in a cat is one of the best feelings in the world.

Something I have started to do is to start doing math. Specifically, basic math and pre-algerbra. I’m doing this to help me if I get too emotional as well as to keep my math skills up. Having basic math skills is something every adult should have.

Another thing I am taking up is latch hook. I figure taking up a hobby latch hook would be helpful when thing aren’t going so well and even when they are going well.

Of course I’ll still be doing art. Specifically coloring. I am coloring a poster for my mom. She likes that type of thing. She is dealing with cancer and the treatment that goes along with it. Plus her birthday is tomorrow.

I don’t have much more to talk about. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Another Day of Sleep & Night of Insomnia

Hello, World!!! It is extremely early on the morning of Sunday, September 4, 2022; here in Seattle. I’m unable to sleep for the second night in a row. Primarily due to sleeping during the day. Not the brightest thing to do especially since I volunteer later on this morning.

Despite being just after two in the morning two in the morning, I feel like I have accomplished a lot tonight. First and fore most I listened to a podcast about philosophy as I colored picture for my mom so I can sure her up. My mom is dealing with stage three lung cancer and hope my colored picture cheers her up. As I colored the picture, I mentioned I’ve listened to a podcast philosophy. The podcast I listened to the philosophy podcast Philosophize This. I highly recommend listening to Philosophize This.

Another thing, I have done was a Basic Math and Pre-Algebra book. I’m doing this because I want to for the hell of it. Plus, if ever get the luxury of going to college, it will put me in a higher math class. But the honest reality is I just want to learn more even if I don’t even attend college. Kind of like me listening to Philosophize this except philosophy is my interesting.

I guess it is now time to play with my precious and playful cat, Billie. I love my Billie so much. He has always be there for me emotionally but the last couple of weeks he has been there for me a little bit more extra. I love my cat so much.

Thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Even though it’s just after two in the morning on a Sunday morning, I hope everyone has a great Sunday. Peace Out, World!!!
