so I have always been something of a nervous Norvis, and w/menopause ===> Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia (among other things).
Over the last few yrs and with the help of my GP, things are managed with a combo of meds and meditations (etc).
Last night, the dude and I had a miscommunication that resulted in me believing for several hours (2-4am) that he was *missing*.
Happy #WorldEnvironmentDay !!! Coincidentally, I'm volunteering at a local zero waste grocer today. What are you doing? #JoinIn #ClimateChange

Hello beautiful people. I hope your day went well and you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did. Have an awesome day.
Put the rest of the solar lights in the garden today. It was another nice sunny day.There are many weeds that need dealing with. I don't mind patches of weeds for the insects, but it's getting to be too many, and I need to sort that in the coming week.
#Monsterdon is tonight at 9:00 Eastern Time.
you may prefer to mute this hashtag before then to avoid timeline impact.
Or #JoinIn because it is a truly funny watch party. That Godzilla is a nut!

Saturday, and we have some sunshine, yay!
I have been replacing old solar lights with new ones. Most of the old ones were worn out, or only randomly came on at night. Not finished yet, still more to do. But I have done enough bending for one day. More tomorrow.
How are you today? Hope you are having a fun day, and maybe getting unfinished projects done.
Be kind, be humble, be compassionate and most of all stay safe and take care.

There is a definite charm about Friday. Friday sparkles and teases and winks at you as you emerge from Thursday night's sleep. It is altogether a most desirable ally, always spurring you on towards the weekend.
Hello you wonderful people. Have a great weekend, and show a little kindness to everyone you meet. You will feel even better.
What are your thoughts? Looking forward to catching The Boogeyman! #joinin #horror #StephenKing https://www.theguardian.com/film/2023/jun/01/best-stephen-king-movies-the-shining-carrie?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
#Today I skipped my early morning walk because the air is full of smoke from the Canadian wildfires, not so much that you can really see it, but the weather people are saying the air quality is poor.
So I paid the monthly bills, went out to grocery shop in the hazy sunshine, and came home with my eyes stinging. I'll spend the rest of the day inside in the AC, sipping coffee and writing. #JoinIn in you feel like it, and whether you do or not, have a good first day of June and Happy Pride to my friends who celebrate it.
Pride Month starts today,
when you celebrate this year,
sing a protest song.

While the rest of the UK basks in warm sunshine, we in the south are having 13C, cold wind and thick cloud. Even London have been getting warm sunny weather. I'm still waiting for Spring, and it's nearly Summer haha. At least the flowers are settling in nicely.
Take care everyone and have an awesome Wednesday.
I have now seen 5 of the Harry Potter movies. Still don't like them, and I am struggling. Thank goodness the next re-watches I do, will be the Back to the Future franchise. At least they are a fun watch. I want to see the Micheal J Fox movie, 'Still' and want a refresher on the films first.
This weeks #FoodForThought
Animals have some legal rights. In some places using animals in lab experiments that may cause harm or death is now banned. You may also serve jail time if you harm or kill someones 4 legged family member.
As Autonomous learning #AI and robots become more commonplace in modern societies, should they have some rights as well?

Was at the garden centre today, buying plants. My happy place. They didn't have the selection I would have liked, but I got enough to fill the tubs and planters. That's all that matters. I hope you had an enjoyable day too.
Be safe, be happy, but most of all be kind.
@madrush Thank you, kindred spirit, for allowing me to share these contemplative appetizers in your sympathetic space.

So, our Flymo lawn mower, caught fire and blew up. So I have had to get a new one, which is coming tomorrow. How has your day been so far?
Affirming and encouraging others has a powerful effect on recipient and giver alike, a simple win-win interaction that's often ignored.
Please [Boost] and share the positive vibes, people need to hear this.
Happy Monday my fellow Mastodonians. I bring a large basket of happiness for you. Don't jostle, there is plenty for all.
Enjoy your day, and reflect on the fact, that you got to wake up to yet another day.
That is wonderful in itself!
Hello fellow #foreverGM! I have a question: how do -you- go about running a crime-ridden city in your games? I'm talking mob rule, I'm talking mafia, I'm talking an official government that can't or won't do anything to impose the rule of law.

I still celebrate that we can put up a post that says we are in an awful place and ppl will reach out in love and support even if they have never heard of us.
@jeanettepizzurro @Jorsh good points. My life doesn't revolve around how the 6 fingered banjo players feel about me. It's how I feel about myself.

Ready for the Man City vs Real Madrid match.
Ok there is absolutely no work for me within a reasonable driving distance from here and I have 1 month's money left so it is now critical I move
Is there anywhere in the US not under siege by Trumpists?
Or what country would be best for an older single female to be welcomed into a community?
The top thing I care about, after finding work that can pay for housing and food, is not being so isolated and lonely
Please boost. This is serious.

It's just one of those days I guess. I'm starting to plan the release of 12 animals but I'm struggling because of how much shooting is going on around me.
The struggle is making my mind wander into dark places because I can't protect them after they are released so I have to trust that I have taught them to distrust men and dogs successfully.
I'll be able to drive down there regularly but I'm going to struggle with fuel as the trip there and back is 120km.
If you can assist in any way, I have a GoFundMe and would hugely appreciate any assistance.
Thank you. #JoinIn #KangaroosOfMastodon
@stefan I started out on Mastodonapp.uk because I had no idea what I was doing (like many in the great Twitter exodus of November 22).
I've stayed here as I found following hashtags was a great way to meet users on other instances. In my case, other #writers.
I've come to the conclusion that as long as your instance doesn't tolerate abuse (mine doesn't), then it doesn't really matter where you are. We can still connect.
Good Tuesday morning to you. I wish you a wonderful day filled with love and kindness. Take care.
🎶 And goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day. Still, I'm gonna miss you🎶

I have to admit, I don't understand the "Monday morning" mentality. Many people are grumpy on Mondays, or say that is the worst day of the week. I can only conclude, they mean, it is furthest from the weekend, otherwise, one day, is much like another.
So, in conclusion, happy Monday. May it be a good one for you. May people be kind and helpful to you, and may you be kind and helpful to them also. Enjoy your day and take care.
I’m blogging again, after laying low for a month.
I truly like blogging.
It’s a slow pace. I visit other blogs; it’s like visiting homes. There’s no hurry, no pressure. It simply just feels different from social media.
Do you have a #blog? If you do, please share a link. Mine is: abeedeesoverseas.blogspot.com

We've received some lovely compliments about the little virtual space we've created in the #CircusInPlace video chat. The one I always find myself reaching for when describing the thing we do three days a week is the word "cozy".
Should you find yourself needing a cozy (albeit often silly) place filled with friendly people, we'll save you a spot.
We'll be there starting at noon (CDT/UTC-5), enjoying each other's company well into the evening.
I'm in a weird place at the moment. My wife (hard word to use) took off after a mental health issue in January. I've had 2 emails from her since then telling me she was okay. I heard nothing for almost 3 months initially.
I'm tired. I'm lost. My sense of humour is dead and frequently I think I wish I was as well.
I've found people to talk to here which I appreciate but I have no idea what to do. I'm sort of lost I think. I wish I had something else to look forward to, but I have nothing.
I appreciate the nature of folks here enormously.
Which of these scents smells better?
Yes, I know there are thousands of scents, and we all have our own favourites. But I am at the mercy of a 4 choice poll here. Work with me guys hehe.
In consultation with my doctor, I have decided that after 3 years I'd like to see what life is like without antidepressants.
I am on 20mg Citalopram (an SSRI). We will very slowly lower the dose.
Does anyone have experience with quitting antidepressants? What withdrawal symptoms can I expect?
Any information or advice is welcome!

Just a reminder that next week, so 4/23-29, is Coffee Cake Week for the #SmallBatchBakeAlong! And the last bake of this round! Dang!
(And as a heads up I want to talk with you all after this round ends? Mainly it’s feeling like if there’s a round three, there should be a long-ish break first, like a month or more. Folks seem busy/exhausted and I want to respect that.)
There are two main recipes this round, as they're both good! One's just more vegan/GF-able!
'Main' recipe: https://iamafoodblog.com/small-batch-copycat-cinnamon-streusel-starbucks-coffee-cake-recipe/
Vegan recipe: https://minibatchbaker.com/small-batch-vegan-coffee-cake/#recipe
How to join in:
-Bake one if it sounds fun!
-Post about it using #SmallBatchBakeAlong! And please both use #AltText for any photos/media and content warn with "food"/"food (positive)" as that allows everyone to join in!
Questions to answer if you're not sure what to write:
-What went right/wrong?
-Did you like it?
-Would you bake it again?
Notes on the next toot!
‘I recently stopped my #Twitter account & like many others, moved to #Mastodon & the first #poet I encountered there was Yahia Lababidi.
