Greetings, readers. The other week I was horribly depressed as a lot of my regular readers could probably tell. Today, with a slightly better diet and a few sunny days, my mood is much better. Granted, my comfy blue recliner broke in half, and I spilled half a bottle of Coke on the carpet, but other than that, this week has unfolded nicely.
I had been fiddling with X-Plane 11 and I’ve actually found a way that I can make it run satisfactorily. I don’t think I am piloting the plane the way I am supposed to, for instance I don’t file a flight plan because I don’t know how to do that anyway, but at least I am not crashing it anymore. Yay, team. This morning, I got to my cruise altitude of 28,000 feet in a Boeing 737-800 and had blue skies ahead of me. This made me feel wonderful. I had the settings set to an early morning flight and the sun, which was behind the aircraft, was casting a shadow on the control panel. This was my first opportunity to use what they call sunglasses mode. From the view menu, you can select such things as sunglasses, which simply dims the picture, or night vision goggles, if you are flying one of the fighter aircrafts with weapons. By the way, that one I have not tried yet. Who knows, one day I might take one of the fighters, armed with a bomb, and blow up an empty field just to see how it works. It will be nice to see an explosion where I haven’t crashed first.
On to other news, as mentioned in the title, I got my new Keurig today. My old one went kablooey because of the hard water coming out of my faucet. I’m going to use bottled water for this one or pick up a faucet filter attachment. This should keep the new Keurig running much longer than the old one did. I am very pleased that it looks and functions exactly like the old one. This means I know how to use it already, though I will still keep the instruction booklet. I have a special drawer in my kitchen for such pamphlets. I have half a box of K-Cups, which should still be usable, and it is going to be so nice to enjoy making something other than instant coffee. I remember back in the 1970s, when I had to make instant coffee I didn’t like it because the taste was horrible. Today, it is actually pretty good, especially Maxwell House or Folgers.
Next Wednesday I will have a therapy session and I am happy to note that I have been in a much better mood and I am sure she will notice the change. I did take her advice on a couple of things, though I did not talk to my doctor about upping my anti-depression meds. If my depression declines again, I will call the doctor and take that avenue.
There’s today’s entry. We hope you all enjoy. Rebecca and I will be here tomorrow with another blog entry, that I will call The top ten list of things I loath about construction sites. The new building going in next door already has their foundation fairly set, but I’m going to have to endure two years of listening to all sorts of loud, abrasive noises.
We’ll see you tomorrow. I bid you a good day, stay warm if you are in the frigid air, take care and happy reading.
