This is for yesterday, not today: using my new scooter and loving every second of it. Freedom!!! (well, as much as I'm able to have with my various physical limitations)

Listening to 7 - 13 year old girls giggle.  My daughter organized a gathering of her mates to paint ceramic pieces at a shop downtown.  They all painted their pieces and then walked home to our place to wait for their parents to pick them up.  They are playing a card game and being delightful grade eight girls.  Some of them I have known since they were 2.5 years old from daycare.  They are so tall and polite and beautiful.

DH being technical and handy. We bought some new lamps and within no-time he has changed the switches on the wall, hung up the ceiling lamps, connected them to wifi and programmed different scenes.

Discovering that you can rent a house or appartment in a nice outdoor place with an amazing view for very little money, in the north of Norway. This is what we plan to do after FIRE. We found out that we would save a lot compared to what we spend on our house, if we could have the money of our house in stocks.

Sitting in the sun during my lunch break at work, for the first time this year. I managed to get a bit sunburned (not so good).

Woke up at 5:30 am. Went to see some interesting early morning birds in their mating period. Driving back home from our cabin. During the drive spotting a moose and a falcon bird. Delivering old oven and stove halfway the driving trip. After that, buying a pair of needed new glives for 50% of price. Then visiting El Cheapo shop aong the route and found a lot of stuff that we needed for a cheap price. All in all a pretty effective day.

Happy dog greeting when we get home in the afternoon. The kids telling us about their day - and the news is good.

My dog is going to live awhile longer (this looked unlikely two days ago).

I ran into coworkers and their baby after work.  Baby is like a grown up man with a man face and hair, and was awake and sweet.

During 2018 I have had many episodes of memory loss, having a total blackout remembering words and sentences. Both during normal speech, but also when writing English (foreign language) and not having a clue how to spell words. This happened several times a day, several days a week. My MIL has a sort of dementia and her symptoms started out the same way. So I have been worried about myself becoming early dement. I have also been unable to multitask and can't remember anything anymore.

Yesterday I went to see my GP. I wanted him to investigate a little spot on my leg for a form of non-aggressive skin cancer that I have had before. And I wanted to talk about this memory loss issue. Based on my information and my answers to his questions and the fact that it has been a lot better for the last 2 weeks, he concluded that it could be situational and due to stress. It is not likely to be any form of dementia.

This has taken away a new portion of stress for me. My stress factors are now disappearing one by one. One big private stress factor left which can hopefully be eliminated after the summer.

I can imagine! That must be such a relief.
