I’m feeling blue today. I’m tired, I didn’t sleep well, the Santa Ana winds occurring here always leave me unsettled, I’m lonely for my loved ones.
What I wouldn’t give to be petting my dogs, cuddling with my husband, sitting in Mockingbird Hill Cottage. This is just one of those days where I want to cry. The excitement of decorating my little apartment has worn off, the day seems to go on forever with nothing to do and nothing seems to interest me. I am homesick. I miss my little cottage, the ticking of the clock, the sound of the dogs’ nails clicking on the wood floors, the sun streaming through our windows, the sound of my husband’s guitar, I miss all of it – even the irritating stuff.
It has only been a little over a week, but it sure seems like longer. I know that this time next week when I am teaching and coaching 2 shows, time will move more quickly. I will have less time to feel blue. In the meantime, I might as well own up to it. I’m blue.
I’m grateful for this blog and for opportunity to express how I feel from day to day. And for all of you who leave such lovely comments. Tomorrow will be better.
P.S. Not helping in my blue mood, I just found out that Country Home is ceasing publication. That makes 3: Home Companion, Cottage Living, and Country Home. Don’t you think that we need these publications now more than ever? I do.
