Here I go, again......... -sigh-

(Link)
I seem to be going through one of those "what do I want to blog about???" phases.   At times like this, I really envy those bloggers, who know the answer to this question, all the time.   And simply, blog about what they choose, all the time. 
.
I try to avoid too much "pity party" type of posting.  Try.  Then, I do it.   😔
.
I try to be all cheery and chipper and fun and etc.  😊   And that sounds kind of hollow. 
.
I don't like revealing too much, about me.    But how do you remain "real," if you don't reveal some?   So how much, do you reveal, to be "real"?  
.
And neither do I go the "Daily Diary" route.   For one thing, we don't doooo that much.  Like day trips and seeing interesting places, to photograph.   Nor do I do crafts, to show in process, and when finished.  So the  "Daily Diary" route, is not for me.
.
I like exploring ideas.   Some people can do this, in a very interesting way.    And it makes you want to wade through a long post.   Because it's not really *wading*.   But to tell the truth, those kind of blogs, seem to have disappeared. Or they tease you, with the promise of returning.   And then, don't follow through.   -sigh-
.
Or, they sink into too many controversial (read Political Views)  posts, and make you scared to follow, for fear of getting rilled up.<-----This is the worst, to me!!!!!!!!!!!    There are a million topics to look into, and muse about, without falling into the Dreaded Political Views sink-hole.  IMHO, that is.  😊
.
Sooooooo, here I am.    Whining again, about "What To Bog About?".   Me, who always advises others, to blog about what they choose.    So, why don't I, take my own advice??????????   -head desk-

Surprise!!!!!!

Surprise!!!!!   ✨   Our bigggg tourist season, begins today!   Since it keeps being extended, we forgot when it starts, now.    But here it is!   Ready or not!!!!   ✨  
.
Soooo glad we went to the library yesterday!     It's in "down-town," and not a thing, to be attempted, today!!!!!   ✨
.

I continue to be delighted by fireflies, this year!    Previously, the only place I noticed them, was out the back patio door/window.   Which I see, seated in my comfy chair.
.
But this year, with our bedroom being downstairs, I see them, when going to bed, too.   And it is magical.  ✨   To lie there, and see their twinkling.    I don't want to close my eyes, and miss more of their dance.  ✨
.
Thank you to all, who left comments on my recent venting post.    Thank you very much.    Life here, with the new house construction next door, continues to be a *challenge*.  -sigh-   But I am trying to not bore you, with it.   😊
.
But let me slip in this latest, *interesting* happening here....   I am facing having to have what's left of my bottom teeth out, and having a denture on the bottom.   That's ok!   I wish I had had that done, long ago.   Instead of pouring money into these old teeth, which are now, beyond repair. ::::::  But the process, will be *interesting*...

-sigh- That %^(*&^$% House!!!!!! 😰

.
-sigh-  And the beat goes on....   With that %*&^%$#^& house they are building, next door.  😰   We thought the blasting was about the worst noise, they could make.   Hahhhhhhh....
.  
Blowing insulation into a house.   It is the most loud and unconscionable noise, one can be forced to listen to.   You hear it, even closed up and with A/C on!!!   And it goes on, all working hours, day after day.   It is soft, so it wants to 'sink,'  so they have to do it, and do it, and do it.
.
Our oldest Grand daughter was home for the holiday.  She brought her dog over, to swim in the pool.  Her parents brought their big "Swissie" over again, to try the pool again.  The 3 of them went in the pool, since it was soooooo hot.   Had fun with the dogs.  So we "had" to go out there too.
.
And the noise was deafening.   😱😰😨😱  Sick-to-your-stomach-making, for my husband and I.
.
Plus, my husband had slipped and fallen, trying to backwash the pool, down where the pool works are...   Where the builders had dug up, looking for water line, and never fixed the land properly.  !!!!!   -----    Yes, I screamed bloody murder, to the contractor, about that!  And the noise!  
.
And today, work on the pool over there, began.   At 6:30AM, they were unloading wood, and talking and making a racket!  6:30AM!    Which of course, is against the law.  And which of course woke us up.

And the machines started working, later.   And dump trucks bringing loads of something in, and dumping it in there.   The *interesting* part, is the metal back, of the huge trump trucks, bangs down a number of time...  When they tip the back up again.   It raises you out of your chair.  
.
And you can imagine, how all this stress, is affecting both our blood pressures, with which we are both struggling.

I know, no one in Pretty  Blog Land, wants to read a loudly complaining post like this one.   And I have stopped myself, from writing such.   But today, I can't stop myself any more.
.
And I apologize...
