Well, there was no well involved. At all.
I was, in fact, sick for the better part of a month, with whatever horrid thing is going around, with only enough energy to drag myself to work, then fall into a puddle of fatigue at night. And frankly, facing my keyboard after a long day at work to post a blog here just wasn't happening.
So, anyway, after a long gap, (I'm sorry!) I'm here to say "I survived!"
[I'm being dramatic. But that's just how I roll.]
But, no. Seriously. Yuk.
Have you had this mysterious kick-in-the-*ss this year? Was it H1N1? Was it the flu? Was it just some virus with ulterior motives?
Anyway, moving on.
I thought I should show you something that made me smile this month.
There was this.
This little boy always makes me smile. He's looking out the window at the doggies, who fascinate him. Oh, the concentration!
Then, there was this belly laugh...
And will someone please explain to me why those little creases in their arms are so delicious?
Some things just defy explanation.
Like this picture.
Give up? Okay, it's my cat, Maisy, rolling in the hammock of our shade-cloth covered patio. She likes to run up there and show off when we're in the back yard with her. She's very excited to have company and likes for us to poke her and play with her through the cloth. She's a cutie.
Here's Maisy with a paw outstretched in invitation.
Wouldn't it be nice if all you had to worry about was a good play date on the patio cover? What I love about pets is that they're just that simple. Like babies. In the moment.
That seems to be a concept that eludes me. But, as I roll through this thunderstorm of change in my life, I am working hard to keep it in mind.
Just put out a paw. And play a little.
Be kind to yourself,
