Until I have more time available to me...
My brother finally moved out, after a year of living with us. After telling him, repeatedly, to save money for deposits that he may or may not have, he still ended up 500.00 short for electric and water deposits. And now has a loan out with our mother.
Like clockwork, 2 weeks after he moved out, he made himself sick. *Every month*, he'd get sick for a week. He'd claim it was his stomach, we think it was deliberate. *Every. Month.*
We lost Miss Sassy, suddenly, in December 2018. She's buried out back, as will all our pets from now on. Morrigan, Caena and Leo are doing well.
My mother in law is in the final stages of Alzheimer's. WE expect by the end of the year, she'll be gone. Of course, she could fool all of us and hang on for another few years.
My dad had a new pacemaker put in, it deals with *both* D-fib and A-fib, since, he's contrary and has both. He's doing much better now.
My second oldest niece is expecting her first, a boy, this Christmas.
My oldest niece apparently is going by 'Owen' now. I have no idea if that means they are deciding to transition or what, as we do not actually communicate.
My youngest niece graduated high school, will be attending community college for a few years, then transferring to a university.
We are now black/green belts in martial arts, and green belts in C.O.B.R.A. self defense fighting systems. We test for black/blue belt in martial arts next month. After that, it's black/red, then full black belt, 1st degree.
Garden did exceedingly well this year. Lots of beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, some zucchini, some potatoes. Pulling the sweet potatoes this weekend, hoping for lots of those too.
Still weaving, took the summer off, have a show the end of next month, then one a month for the next three. Have a whole list of things to create between now and then, so back to work I go.
Apparently my Galaxy Fit thinks I'm cycling... Fool thing.
