Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

Feeling a bit soggy right now.  Rain, rain and more rain.  The ditches on each side of the driveway are getting deeper all the time and there's a trench developing across it where the water has nowhere else to go.  Sigh.  Can't get any weeding done either unless I want to get soaked (no, thank you).  So, I've been sewing.  Trying to stay busy so depression doesn't set in.  I also go to the gallery in hope social intercourse will keep away the blahs.  So far it's working but if we have many more days like this.....
Hoping the overflow pipe in the pond can do its job.  Tired of the gray skies.  Really just want to stay in bed and sleep but can't let it get to me.  Send some sun....please.

You ever feel "down in the dumps"?  A vague uneasy, not upbeat feeling?  I don't reckon everyone can feel upbeat all the time but this...
Woke up this morning feeling, I don't know, unwilling to get out of bed, feeling something's not right but don't know what.  I need to get things done outside but have to go out before the sun comes up from behind the trees.  Ain't gonna happen.  It doesn't happen often to me but when it does...
It could be worrying about a good friend who had some heart work done and is back in the hospital.  the procedure done was one I'd never heard of....cauterizing the part of her heart that isn't working.  They went in through arteries in her legs and now there's a huge hematoma in her groin.  I don't like the sound of it.
Or it could be that, all of the sudden, I'm feeling lonely.  Ordinarily I'm fine living by myself.  I have outside things that I do with others and am actually quite busy.  I guess it's that plans are made by others and I'm not notified but expected to participate at the last minute.
I just don't know.....sigh.

I slept in this morning.  My little cat, PB, kept me up until past midnight keeping something (another cat, probably) away from the house.  Or trying to.  I didn't know she had such a loud voice.  Just as I'm about to drift away she lets loose with this horrendous yowling, first at the back screen door on the back porch, then again at the front screen door.  I finally had to close the front door which I didn't want to do because I wanted to keep the house cool and there's a nice cross breeze between front and back.  I left the back door open and, luckily, no more yowling.  I'm still trying to wake up.
Y'all have a great day and remember:  he who hesitates may just be taking his time.

I never would have thought that when I grew older that I would develop allergies.  Unfortunately for me I have.  Woke up this morning with a wicked sinus headache and the sniffles.  Pollen is in the air.  Not very visible to the naked eye but, since my truck as a yellow/green powdery addition to the paint, I've concluded that pollen is out in full force.  This phenomenon (allergy) has only shown up in the last three or four years and it's getting worse each year.  There's a lot of yard work to be done so I take an over the counter allergy med each morning. I'm hoping that it continues to work.  When I see it's supposed to get up into the 80's I try to get out before the sun comes up from behind the trees to get something accomplished outside.  Today I'm taking the day off from that.  Have other stuff I have to do.  Going to stay in the AC and hope my sinuses stop hurting so much.  How are y'all doing?
