Monday, Monday what will you be,
Here, fog and very white and dreary.
Or world is covered with frost and beautiful
But if the sun was out it would be wonderful.
Yes very dull, and I could take some beautiful picture of the frost covered trees, but it is foggy and not very bright so the picture would be pretty blah. The first thing I saw when I walked into the bathroom upon arising was the Hardy Bamboo stalks totally engulf in that beautiful Frost. They have very lacy flower heads and I never cut them down until spring cause they are interest plants in the winter with their brownish red six to seven foot long stalks and those wonderful flower heads, and now totally white. Just beautiful, maybe will try later, if it brightens up to take their picture. Also all the Evergreen trees, 98 of them, are all white, and a very Winter Wonderland right now outside.
The livestock is all accounted for, Merlin and Finn both sleeping and Shorty and Kinney are watching the birds fly around outside. Have lots of sparrows, doves, and of course there is always a barn cat or two outside on the patio, so there is always something moving around to amuse them. I am not so sure that they aren't enjoying the beauty out there. I love the way Shorty always sits on the pillow in the corner of the sofa, but I suppose with his hind legs the way they are sitting on the back of the sofa is out, so to see out the pillow does the trick.
I just can't seem to get motivated here lately, well really for sometime actually, but I really need to kick myself out of Neutral and at least put the old transmission is first gear. All I do is fill this tank and get no where. Sure I get all the necessities done, and keep the house tidy, the clothes washed, both of us fed, but as far as really moving I haven't really concentrated on much more for months, if not a year or two, and I really need to. I think a lot of that started almost 3 years ago when all my thoughts were on Larry's, survival, his recovery, and taking care of him, that I totally forgot about me, and the way I am now is not how I wanted my or our retirement to be. We could be and should be doing so much more, but where do I start?
Well, that is enough on that subject so I am going to move on, so take care and have a GET Monday. Linda
