No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"It is the first shower that wets." - Italian Proverb

Music of the Day:
-- An assortment of very loud music by Michael

Drinking: Water; Lipton tea

I woke up in my chair this morning at 3:42 a.m. Ugh. I shut out lights and went to bed.

I did not wake up Michael who was sleeping fitfully on the futon.
I did not wash my face.
I did not brush my teeth.
I did not put my bite guard in.

However, I did get into my jammies.

That is the last I remember until my alarm went off at 6:15 a.m. to take medication and it went off again at 7 a.m. I do not know how I set this alarm but this is the third morning it was woken me. When I do wake up, I take care of this irritant.

Actually, I am awakened by Michael playing his music. Granted it is good music such as the Rolling Stone, Aerosmith, Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Beatles, and some I do not know who they are.

The bedroom door is closed and I can hear the words perfectly. I can only imagine that the walls of the living room are heaving in and out.

Michael and I have talked about this before. Well, talking may not be the right word. Just let me say, it was not a fun or pleasant conversation.

Now, I shut the door to the room I am in and that takes the sound level down a notch or two.

Luckily we have an agreement with our neighbors that when they have heard enough music, they will call, text, or cover over and let us know it is time to squelch the tunes.

I like loud music but not for long periods of time; after awhile I begin to feel anxious. I also use ear plugs. Sometimes, I go outside and sit in the truck. Hopefully, Michael comes to his own conclusion that he has had enough music.

Loud music is one thing but Michael does not want to acknowledge that he is hard of hearing. I have suggested being tested and considering getting a hearing aid. Oh, he doesn't want to hear that. LOL, the pun not intended.

It is now 4:44 p.m. PST. I have been listening to music since this morning. Granted it is good music but I am ready for some quiet now. I am going in to talk with Michael. Wish me luck.

Michael did prepare me a lovely breakfast. It was an omelet with mushroom, asparagus, bacon, sour cream, and grated cheese. Let's not forget the cup of tea.

I will be good for eating for the next couple of hours.

The sun is out today as I write. It is now 1:27 p.m. The hummingbirds have been buzzing the feeder and each other. I saw the little brown bird on the fence. I have not seen the blue jays yet today.

Here is a fact I did not know about hummingbirds: One type of hummingbird weighs less than a penny. This comes from Interesting Unknown Facts.

My mind is in a fog. I am just writing junk.

I did play some free cell and spider solitaire. I went on Face Book and Twitter. Face Book I am slowly getting a hang of what is going on here. For Twitter, I haven't a clue. I have someone following me already. I have no idea who this person is or why they want to follow me.

Anyway, I failed to note that yesterday was Veteran's Day. It wasn't until late in the day I said something to Michael about his being a veteran. He was a P3 engine mechanic in the Navy and had his own crew while stationed in Hawaii. He was very good at what he did. I am grateful he did not have to see active combat. That said, I know he was affected by all that he had seen and heard. I am grateful for his service to our country.

Another fact that yesterday was 11-11-11. Yes, it is something that occurs every so often but won't we have a 12-12-12 next year? I know some of numerology but this has gone over my head. All I can say is I had a good day. Nothing dramatic happened other than meeting with a friend and later meeting with more friends.
