The about me bit :)

I had a run in. There was a brief altercation between the hard to open living room window and the thumb on my right hand. Nothing broken but boy howdy the bruises are spectacular. Writing isn’t a thing again just yet and things need to heal a little bit before we can figure out how bad I hurt it. The doc said I probably dislocated the joints but they were in place on the X-rays. There was no obvious nerve damage at the time of the examination and it’s still too soon to start guessing (still swollen) on the if part. It’s the hurry up and wait part.

Disclaimer update: I think I’ve more or less found my swapping feet 😆

I’m at the starter levels of “old” (49!) I’m chronically ill and medical issues and little things like health and a global pandemonium (veiled covid reference) have me currently restricted getting out and about socially. It’s been about 5 and a half years since I have “peopled” socially much. The solitude has been nice as far as having time to look inward and evaluate things and deciding what my priorities are and how weird life can be sometimes. I still need to interact with folks outside of hospitals and clinics. This a safer way for this shy gal to do so and here we are. I’m socially awkward and sometimes can seem like I’m a self centred jerk but it’s mostly that I’m autistic and don’t really catch nuances a lot of the time. Things I enjoy: Myths and mythology, legends, folktales and lore. Kindness. I enjoy a lot of “dead arts” like sewing, tatting (handmade lace), embroidery, spinning (recently acquired interest) I think stories about weird or silly things that we worried about or were afraid of as children are fascinating. I also love polar bears, seals, selkies, mermaids, otters, vintage fashion, and Lego. •I have discovered Artist Trading Cards! I love ATCs. I’m interested in swapping or adopting ATCs privately just message me!

C- costuming

D- deco podge

E- elephants

F- fanciful notions, folktales and folklore,

G- Gaelic, gummy bears

H- historical fiction

I- idioms and ice cream (I love and hate idioms though because they are funny and at the same time baffling)

J- jiffy muffin mixes

K- kids (they are sacred people) loom knitting,

L- Lego!

M- Mermaids, magnet fishing

N- needlework

O- Ocean and otters

P- plants

Q- quilting

R-

S- selkies, Scottie dogs, and seals

T- thistles (the best flower!) tin whistle, tattoos

U-

V- video games

W- water, whimsy

X-

Y- yeet (admittedly it is fun to say)

Z- Zebra (the mascot for Ehlers Danlos)

I’ll add more later ☺️

Comment: Thank you for the long letter that just arrived yesterday. I hope autumn is going to be a better time than summer was. I had some problems with your handwriting but I will not complain because my handwriting is not readable (even by me !) which is why I always type. Thanks too for the PCs, I love knowing what place looks like.
