Oh my, oh my, oh my.
It's been a rather lovely day for me even though almost all I've done is to try and get my new phone filled with all of the information from my old phone and although at times the process has gone swimmingly, I think I'm going to have to send this one back and get another. I know they use refurbished phones and that's fine.
If they work.
But this one would not connect to my headphones and I'm now trying to download all of my stuff from the old phone to the new one again and there seems to be a glitch in that process too.
I will say though, that the insurance company who provides the new phones (Asurion) has been wonderful with tech help both via phone and via an app that they sent me a link to where I can communicate with a tech person.
You know, it's funny. I'm 64 years old and yes, there are so many tech-related things that I'm absolutely in the dark about and yes, Gibson does give me instructions for using the remote when I'm navigating Netflix as if he has already internalized the myth that old people just can't do things like that, but I am not completely ignorant and things are so much simpler now than they used to be when home computers first became a thing.
But when things go wrong, it's so helpful to be able to reach out for assistance.
Mr. Moon has gone to Georgia to hunt again and up until today things had been a tiny bit bumpy with us for a few days. Nothing big, just a little bruising of delicate feelings and slight misunderstandings and the sorts of things which beset all relationships no matter how long or short they may be. But this morning things were tenderly made smooth again and I sent him off with a truly loving heart and some frozen soup and a small meatloaf for him to eat this week and he knew that I loved him and I knew that he loved me and so all is very, very well.
Jessie and Lily and I had planned an outing today to a local farm where they have a corn maze and animals but then it started raining and we found out that the farm had closed because of it and although I was really looking forward to going, mostly because we had such a good time when we went there last, I was not upset to stay home and tend to things here. You can read the post that I wrote about our visit there two years ago HERE and it's slightly interesting, not just for the report and pictures of the babies but also because I wrote it just a few days after the 2016 election which gives it a bit of historical context, I guess. Plus, a few miracles were noted and described.
The Pope still hasn't gotten back to me on those though.
I'm sure he's busy.
Have I told you that the baby chicks and Dearie have had the run of the coop for the last few days? They have and they are so damn cute, running around and scratching up bugs and whatever they can find. Dearie is still in Alpha Mommy Mode, protecting her babies and calling them back if they get too far away from her. And I am still in awe of how dedicated she is to her babies. When I go to shut the big chickens up in their roost I check on the growing family too and she invariably has them tucked up in her wings in the back, most protected part of the little coop and I shut the lid and wish them a good night.
I am so thrilled that all ten are still alive.
It has rained for most of the day and I have been grateful for that. It has given me reason to stay inside and not feel guilty. I've read some while waiting for downloads. I got cold and took a very long and hot shower. I worked a little on Levon's monkey. I chatted with very polite and knowledgeable tech people. I've done some laundry.
I've been content in my house, in my life.
I've been at ease and in contentment in my love.
Well. There. That's been my life today. And we shall see what tomorrow brings us.
