When you live with your partner in such a small space, getting alone time isn’t always easy.
So I relish the few times that Dave runs an errand by himself. Today we’ll attempt the prompt by Linda G Hill who gave us this: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “left alone.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
Yesterday, Dave set out to go fishing and so I was left alone to my own devices. I had plans, of course. My back was sore and I didn’t really feel like going, so I used the time alone to clean up, organize messy cabinets in the sala-living room-and paint my nails while watching the documentary “Save Me” about the life and career of the musician Jellyroll.
What an eye-opener that was! If you care to watch it, I’ll leave a link. If nothing else, it will make you understand the man more and that he came from a very bad past. What he has done with his life is nothing short of miraculous! It was a very good documentary.
I don’t like to do my nails when Dave is around to spare him the odors, but he got back earlier than expected, so we watched the rest of the show together. Even he was amazed at the man and his story. Oh, they call him Jellyroll because of his stature, and I think he said his love for donuts. ☺️
Sometimes, even when Dave is here, I find alone time by going in the bedroom to watch something like a movie on my iPad, so I did that too. I watched Ticket to Paradise, a very funny movie with George Clooney and Julia Roberts. Other times, as you probably know, I take off on a long walk. If he’s watching golf, like today and every week Thursday-Sunday, I find other things to do. Not that I don’t like golf, but all day for four days in a row is too much for me. I’ll wait for the last day, when it’s more exciting.
So, today, I plan to work on crafts, and maybe take a walk to check out the pottery shop and just browse. Who knows? I might find something I can use in my crafts or a gift for one of my many friends coming to visit this month. I can’t wait!! I won’t be left alone when they get here!
