Daily Prompt: Ovation

via Daily Prompt: Ovation

The last time I remember receiving applause from an audience was in 1997 at a dinner held in my honor to celebrate my graduation from Hunter College. Obtaining my BA Degree was a huge accomplishment. I started college in 1979.  When I stopped attending classes in 1983, I was very close to completing.  I finally went back to college on a part-time basis in 1995.

It’s been about 19 years since that celebration dinner .  Due to health issues, I am mostly homebound.  On days when I feel well enough , I crochet. These days my applause worthy accomplishments are limited to a few sales of my  crocheted items on Etsy.

Thank you Misty

I have had my cat Misty for about seven years.  Due to my health condition, I very rarely leave home. I appreciate Misty’s presence.  Misty sleeps most of the time.  But I still enjoy her company. The most valuable life lesson Misty has taught me is just being still is enough. I am learning to be happy just being . I am less concerned about making to do lists or finishing projects.

I am learning not only to accept my mobility impairment but also to celebrate the freedom of stillness.

Plarn

Today, I am cutting some of my plastic grocery bags into strips to use in my crocheting. I plan to mix this “plarn” with acrylic yarn to make tote bags , coin purses, and cell phone pouches.  I have watched several YouTube videos on recycling plastic bags grocery bags. I hope my plarn creations are beautiful and useful.

Rainy Day Songs

I’m trying to make the best of a bad situation. For the
past seven days , there has been a bad leak in the ceilings and  walls of my bedroom and bathroom. Due to my mobility issues wet floors are especially dangerous for me.

I have complained to building management. I’ve taken pictures of the water damage. I will contact city agencies to address this problem.

To put a positive spin on this negative occurrence,  I am making a list of rainy day songs.

Here is the list of rainy day songs I have come up with so far:

Showers of Blessings
Rainy Days and Mondays
Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head
Rain Rain Go Away
Over the Rainbow
Singing in The Rain
It’s Raining Men
Stormy Weather

Please suggest additional rainy day songs for my list.
