New to the sidebar of my blog…

… and near the top of that sidebar, there now appear links to recent statuses posted to my roscoedon Instance in the fediverse.

At the present time I’ve set my Roscoe’s Story blog to echo links to new posts over to the fediverse, and links to original statuses from my fediverse Instance will appear in this blog’s sidebar.

It remains to be seen how I can best make use of this setup. Posting to the blog requires for me to be sitting in front of the computer at home, while I can easily add statuses to the fediverse from my phone wherever I am (as long as I can reach the Internet – I suppose.)

Like so many other things I do, this is project is a work in progress. And we’ll see how it works out.

Oh, I should mention that the server where my fediverse Instance is hosted is physically located in France and statuses will carry a timestamp from there, while my home computer lives in South Texas with me. So there may appear to be some differences in the dates of blog posts and fediverse statuses. Don’t let that throw you, kids.

Good morning, Monday…

Still waiting for the fog of last night’s sleep to fully lift. Double-dosed the allergy meds a few minutes ago, so that should help. Good hot coffee is in my mug and more is in the pot, that should help too.

The bathroom scales were very kind to me this morning, as was my blood pressure machine. Better numbers than expected from both help me face this day with confidence.

The jump start on my chores from yesterday’s prep work has me feeling good about that part of my day, too.

Now if only that head fog would lift… Think I’ll get another mug of coffee right now, and I’ll get back with you all later. Until then, I hope you all have a fine day.

Good night, Sunday…

As another day winds down I’m happy to note it’s been a good one.

Lectoring at 10:00 Mass went well. I arrived plenty early which helped, it gave me time to review the “Announcements After Mass” beforehand in order to be more comfortable reading them when the time came to do that. The Cantor was absent so it fell to me to lead the Responsorial Psalm, but the choir was present and they were able to sing the “Alleluia” before the Gospel reading. Glad I didn’t have to do that. Heh. This was our Knights of Columbus Council monthly Corporate Mass and it’s always good to work together with my brother Knights.

Relaxing at home through the afternoon and evening I was able to do prep work for the weekly and monthly chores.

One habit I’ve gotten into is placing stars on our kitchen calendar so Sylvia and I can see at a glance those days when we have doctor’s appointments, scheduled meetings, or special events we’re obligated to attend. At the first of the month, here’s what our September is looking like:

And I’m glad my medicine cabinet is well stocked with Zyrtec. Dosing before bedtime seems necessary to get any kind of restful sleep, and dosing in the morning is important to making it through the day without all those horrible allergy symptoms.

Hope we all have a good night, folks. I’ll check back with you in the morning.
