I just sneezed eight times in a row. I don’t know about you, but that leaves me feeling exhausted!
Do you ever wake up feeling edgy? Even though I slept a lot last night, thankfully, I feel uneasy, tense, and on edge. I would say that I don’t know the cause, but I’m absolutely sure it has to do with the state of our world right now. Threatening nuclear war should put everyone on edge. Having two madmen in charge of nuclear arsenals doesn’t make for a feeling of peace and tranquility. There’s much more, of course. We are bombarded daily with terrible news, with ever more outrageous assaults, we go through yet another attempt to take health care away from millions…you know the drill. It can’t help but take a toll on our peace of mind. Even though I think I handle it pretty well, I realize on a day like today that it’s always there, just below the surface. We resist, but constantly having to mobilize and resist is draining. Nevertheless, we do. And will.
Praying for peace. Praying for a change. Soon.
Thinking of my dogs.
And our beloved Max.
Oh, you darling boy. I can’t believe you’re gone. What joy you brought to everyone who was lucky enough to meet you.
Rest in peace. Run and play with your cousins, Riley and Winston and Scout. Your Grandpa is waiting to take you for a walk and scratch your head.
This abandoned robin’s nest fell out of one of our trees. I finally rescued it and it’s now on the table on the porch.
And we have eight morning glories this morning! The other batch that I planted and had given up on is suddenly full of buds, so we have more and more coming. That makes me happy on this edgy day.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
