Good Morning!

It's that time of the day again. Time to drink coffee and gather my thoughts and make sure my head is screwed on tight before I do so. I will give myself a limited amount of time to come up with something amusing to write, otherwise I'm deleting everything and going back to bed, which is where I think I belong anyway, considering I only had 6 hours of sleep. So, that is why I'm yawning and, although you can not see me, tear drops are hanging in the corners of my eyes and are running down my face. In reality I'm very tired still. I will be stubborn and stay up and write this post. After that I will go back to bed for a while.

I did walk Tyke already and make cigarettes with the last tobacco that I still had. I just checked my bank account balance to make sure I had enough money to go to the tobacco shop and all is sound and well. You never know at the end of the pay period, especially if you haven´t looked for awhile. It does get scary, but I´m always okay. That´s because I´m such a penny pincher. As a reward for my good efforts, I just ordered a book at The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, which came recommended by one of my blog friends. She liked it and her husband likes it (he´s still reading it), so it must be good. Stieg Larsson is a Swedish writer and I usually like Scandinavian writers, especially Swedish ones.

The new background to my blog does actually come from Blogger itself. It´s one of the new designs. I did end up picking one of theirs after I looked around a bit. There are a lot of choices now and you can choose any one of them in a multitude of colors. I was immediately hit by this watercolor. I appealed to my sense of aesthetics and reminded me of my screen saver. It has the same shades of pink in it.

I feel good as long as I´ve taken my medicines. You wouldn´t think it would make that much difference, but it does. In the morning it takes a while for everything to start working and until that time I don´t feel all that happy. I take my medicines as early as I can, without creating too large a gap until my noontime medicines, and then I drink coffee until the medicines start to work. It´s a real relief when they do and I feel a load drop off my shoulders. It´s like I join the living and these are not addictive medications. This is medicine I take in order to function well.

This has been just this week while I´m not doing as well as I was before, but I´m not in super bad shape now. I´ve increased my anti depressants and I think I´m reaping the benefits of that.

I´ve got to stop writing now, because Tyke is begging for attention. he´s doing everything he can to try and get me to stop doing what I am doing. He´s nearly climbing in my neck.

Have a good day, you all.

I have The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo sitting beside my bed waiting to be read! There are three books in that series, which I didn't realise when I read Book 2 (The Girl Who Played With Fire)first! I hope the fact that I'm reading them out of order doesn't matter too much.

Hi Nora. I slept in until 2.30pm today! But I only went to sleep at around 3.30. I badly needed to catch up on my sleep.

I always think of Sat as a dead day anyway - there are far too many people in town to go out and the Bear never goes out on Sat either.

Glad you're feeling a little better. I am too - though I can't see a reason for it. Just that my brain is ready to move on to something brighter.

Hope the rest of the day is good for you.

I love the look of your new blog. I should check out some of the new back grounds myself as I have been stuck in a rut for far too long. It is amazing what a blog pick me up can do.

I have heard great things about that book, and the the other 2 books that follow it. It is sad that the author died before her books became a success.

I bought a Kindle for Christmas and I love it. The books are so much cheaper and they download in seconds. Sometime they even have free books to down load and some times the top sellers are as low as .79 I've become a real deal shopper. Plus, in general the top sellers are so much cheaper. I wasn't sure I would like it, but I LOVE it.

I spend all day in bed yesterday with a horrible Migraine, and I'm pretty sure it was because my sleep was messed up and some allergies acting up. I feel so much better today. Today I'm forcing myself to get in the shower and do something.

As always, your in my thoughts.

I do love that splashy artistic background. light but lively.
Very busy at the moment and as I am working online, I don't get on here much - need to break from screens. Glad you sound on an even keel. Look after yourself.
