Brain Jumble.. or My Mind is Like a Crossword Puzzle!


How do i shorten this post title?  I have no answer to that.  All day long i thought it was Thursday.  Five Across.. what day of the week starts with 'W' and is called Hump Day?  What day.. mixed up.. is Dewesnady?  My brain has been this way all day long.  Since i woke up at 6:30 am.  And it's not as if i had a lazy day.  I didn't.  I had a good, strong five mile walk this morning.  I volunteered for four hours this afternoon.  (I volunteer at a local Portland hospital.)  I love it.  :)  I went book and magazine shopping afterward.  I had no problem making a decision about which books and mags i wanted!  (I never do.)  Books are my bag.  On my walk, my mind was everywhere.  And i was fine this pm, until the second i opened the exit door and walked to my car in the hospital parking garage.  I again lost all focus.  I meant to call my mother and mother in law.  I forgot about 'em!  But it will be our secret.  I can't let either of them know that.  I also forgot to fill my car with gas on the way home.  Luckily the little light isn't on.  But this must be the first errand i run tomorrow morning.  After a long walk to (hopefully) clear the cobwebs.  Eight across.. what's that stuff you put in your car that makes it run?  I'm going to try Sudoku, and get a few crossword puzzles to work on while S is in Tokyo.  They're supposed to help sharpen one's mind, right?  So many times in the last couple of weeks, a word has been on the tip of my tongue, and all of a sudden someone will ask me, and i draw a big blank!  I think, what is his her name again?  It begins with an 'L'.  Yes.. it's L something.  Or was that G?  Yeesh!  So that was my day.  Hot flash free, and no anxiety, but lots of mind jumbles.  Annoying.  I'm determined to get a fabulous night's sleep tonight, and tomorrow i shall remember everything!  My mind will be a glorious font of knowledge.  And if you believe that, i've a bridge in.. let me see.. what was that place again?  Fargo.  Yes, a bridge in Fargo to sell you!  :D

Well, i have another hour or so before i head to bed for that great night's sleep!  Replenish my mind's connections.. or something.  :)



I love duckies!  Why did the ducks cross the road?  I've no idea, but i'll bet they remember!  lol  I'll be back soon.  M

  1. Don't feel bad, I often (more often than not, I'd venture to say) feel like it's a day other than one that it actually is. I think this comes in part from the brain fog brought on my some of my conditions and also because I usually am not able to sleep standard (nighttime) hours. No matter though, with calendars all over the house and on the desktop of my computer, it's never hard to actually nail down which day it is. :)

    Those duckies are so darling! I've always loved ducks, too. One of the first photos I took with my iPhone after getting it last Christmas (taken on Boxing Day) was of a cute little duck that came to say hello to in the parking lot near a local lake. They're just too cute not to take snaps of when one has the opportunity.

    *PS* Thank you very much for your absolutely lovely comment on my vintage outfit post this week, dear Mary. We still have a fair of snow here, and if I could, I'd happily box of scads and ship it your way right this moment.

    1. We have quite a few calendars up around here too, and that's a good thing for me on many days. lol. And i'm online often, so i keep in touch with the rest of the Universe that way too!

      I just adore ducks. I have many photos that i've taken of the ducks at the park behind our local library. That's a great place. I get to borrow as many books as i want, and see my favorite water fowl! :D

      Any you're very welcome for my comment. I love your outfit posts. They're always lovely!

  2. I think that your mind is troubled because your darling is away; And without knowing it, you're spending the day thinking of him, 'cause you miss him. So your mind is already busy somewhere else, and does not want to focus on something else; I'm sure you'll be perfectly OK when he'll be back!
    Why do ducks cross the street? to go on the other side! :o) (french joke)

    I hope you'll have a better day! Hugs from France!

    1. You might be right, Malyss! I'll be very happy when he returns. :) I do fine on my own, but when he's here i'm happy and not stressed, and therefore, forgetful.

      Here we have that same joke, except that we say it about chickens, lol. Why did the chicken cross the road? ... To get to the other side. I've always liked it even though it's and old joke.

      Hugs back to you from here! :) Have a wonderful weekend!
