I spent the day in Salem! We visited the memorial for the witches, went to the witch dungeon museum, and stopped by the Derby lighthouse.
These may be shitty pictures, but I have once again left vactionland so a short adventure. While I always love seeing this bridge and leaving Maine behind, the feeling of peace when I pass back over it is just as nice. It’s like an instant feel of relief to be home. Also the sunset is gorgeous tonight, but I’m in the backseat and the opposite side so I can’t get a good photo of it.
These may look like a pair of raggedy old binoculars, cause they are. But! These were a big thing in a my childhood. My grandfather had a bigger pair and at this time I called him big monkey and I was little monkey. My grandparents had a condo at Old Orchard Beach. We’d use them to spy on people on the beach and other things. My grandmother gave these to me last night and they brought back so many memories.
Today I found out my sweet little kitty has cancer. She may have a few months, but it may only be a few days. I honestly don’t know what I’ll do without her. She’s everything I have ever wanted in a cat and I love her so much. She’s like my baby.
As I’ve written a lot lately, I have been going through some rough things. What I want the most is to be able to talk to m grandfather, but he passed away a little over 2 years ago. It’s really hard sometimes because I miss him so much. Anyways, I was thinking about him a lot the other night and then a guy on tv started singing Danny Boy. My grandfather liked this song and sang it during his time in the hospital before he died. His name was Daniel too, so he was called Danny. I like to think this was him letting me know that he is here with me.
I haven’t consumed caffeine in months. It’s been easy, until lately: the smell of coffee has made it so hard to resist. I don’t miss the energy coffee gave me, I miss the taste. I’ve almost caved a few times, but have held myself back. I finally bought decaf.
