I dunno why people bother to follow me on Pinterest since I never post anything

homeI can’t remember the last time I posted something on Pinterest. I think that Pinterest is a really cool concept. Sometimes I actually search for recipes out there. By the way, does anyone have a recipe/plan for making macaroni in TWO individual ramekins? Like a *few* noodles and just enough cheese/etc. I *hated* mac ‘n’ cheese when I was a kid but that’s a complicated issue involving fluorescent orange powdered “cheese”, etc.

I think the idea behind Pinterest is wonderful. Curating pictures (etc.) that capture your interests? Why not? I tried. At one point, I even set up a private account to deal with my chitchen prodject. I dunno. Pinterest didn’t really help me renovate my ugly chitchen. What helped me with that is to connect with a wonderful woman who sorta “got me” and my design ideas. (She is pretty close to my beach urchins’ age and thinks it would be fun to hang out with them and I’m not sure I disagree.)

I first joined Pinterest back in the year or so that The Commander fell ill and eventually died. I was still active on Pinterest when The Commander was living at Freighter View in hospice care. I spent a lot of time sitting there in her beautiful room listening to the music of her oxygen musheen as I checked my email and tried to hang out with my work folks. I was not very productive during that time and I will never forget my employer’s empathy and patience during those days. I would get email pings from people who liked my posts and sometimes just getting email from anyone made me feel somehow still connected to the world.

Alas, in the long run, email pings from strangers do not float my boat. I still have an account and some “boards” on Pinterest. I will probably still search for recipes and things out there from time to time. But if you want to talk to me about anything serious, please TALK to me.

So back in the day I used to watch Dallas and Dynasty. We’re watching Shameless tonight. The Brit version, thank you very much.

    I am embarrassed when people follow me on Pinterest because I do NOTHING there. I don’t even remember my log-in!! You have a great employer. My work was also very understanding when Patt was ill/dying; their help and support helped me in many ways, love, food, messages, etc.
