Update about blog

Come on over to my other blog, Alchemy of Clay and Living in Black Mountain NC, where the scenery and my ceramic arts life are combined. I've moved some personal blog posts, (as well as those that are about my ancestors) back here.

Have you ever?

In the last 24 hours I have -

  • Used shampoo to wash my whole body in the shower, cause that's what I poured into my hand, and didn't need to do my hair either.  I have liquid body soap, which is the problem.  The bottles look alike.

  • Put the half and half in the microwave instead of fridge after fixing coffee.

  • Ran naked to answer phone in living room with all the curtains open (hope you don't walk on my street!)

  • Walk around saying the words of things I see or do, and they are nothing like the correct ones.  Feed the fish became "walk the dog."  Alright, they both had to do with pets.  I don't have a dog!

Yep, I talk to the fish, and the cats, and of course the tomato plants...the geraniums, etc.  They don't care how accurate I am.  They have their own languages which I don't understand anyway.

I reassure myself that I sometimes just haven't got the link working in my brain correctly before I go out and try to drive or talk with other people. 

I am pretty sure this is normal aging forgetfulness.  (There was a time a couple of years ago I was certain it was Alzheimer's.)  But now I feel like getting as much rest, as much brain food (fish 3 times a week), and reducing my level of stress is helping. So if I don't volunteer for anything else, unless I give up something I've already said I'd do, the reason is I want to coddle my brain somehow.  Be nice to it...take care that it takes care of me as long as I need it.  I sure love to exercise it too!  Love word games, puzzles, reading, and learning new things...etc.
