Last night I got ready to watch another Vera episode, only to find I’d seen the last one on Acorn TV.
So I went to Amazon Prime Video and put in my info only to find I needed to do something first on my computer, and I don’t use my computer at night. If I did my hands would wear out from arthritis.
So today I will try to get that figured out. Why on earth can’t they just have all the series in one place? Money I’m sure. Usually the answer to most everything.
Instead I watched the first episode of Brokenwood. I like it so will continue to watch it, as I love mysteries. I think some of you may have mentioned that I might like it.
I wanted to let you know that I’ve started putting links to small home blogs on Lovely Reads, the page at the top of my blog. It is all the way at the bottom because I list the blog genres in alphabetical order.
I will be adding to that whenever I find decent blogs I think you might like, for those of you who live in small spaces.
In that vein, I am starting a new series called Living Large In Little Houses.
I will approach people who live in small homes and ask if they’re willing to be interviewed. Then I will write posts showing photos of their homes and include a Q&A.
Do you have any questions you’d like me to ask them about small space living?
My first one will likely be Kris from the blog Junk Chic Cottage. We’ve known each other a long time through blogging.
You might want to go and visit her blog. She and her husband do the most inventive DIYs in their home. It is always a wonder to see what they’ve come up with.
They moved into a small house not too long ago. She told me she thought they’d have it ready to take photos of what they’ve completed possibly next week.
I will make a separate page for these interviews so they will be easy to find.
I don’t think I’ve told you that I got to go inside one of the condos I’ve written so fondly about. They’re called Shannonwood Condos.
They’re the ones I mentioned I’ve wanted to live in because they’re right next to my grocery store and within a few blocks of Trader Joe’s and Supercuts.
Last week after getting groceries I saw a door open to one of them and a woman standing there. I parked and asked if she was moving in or out and she said out. She offered to let me look inside.
Unfortunately the very first thing in my sight was a steep three steps you had to go up to even get to the rooms. Not outside, but inside. She said that’s why she’s moving. She has a bad ankle and can no longer maneuver the steps.
Well, there went that idea. She told me if I had any problems with my ankle or knees or back to not try to live in these condos, for the steps are a real problem for many.
Why would they build condos where you open your front door and then within about two yards have to go up steep steps? Worries about possible flooding? It sure wastes that space I thought.
After slowly going up those steep steps, I saw there was no point in going any farther.
Well, that idea can go into the dead ideas file.
I wanted to show you something. Remember the back stretcher I got from Amazon? Well, I’ve found that while watching TV I can put it behind me and it gives me support while I read or watch TV in my bedroom.
Typically I put it on my yoga mat, use a pillow for my head, and lay on it to stretch my back.
But it doesn’t take long for my back to start hurting while laying in bed either.
I hate to recommend using it this way because I don’t know if it’s an acceptable way to use the back stretcher. But it works for me. So thought I’d give it a mention.
