A Little Bit of Down Time

I was awake at 6:30 this morning. I did go to bed early. I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. I honestly felt worse after a day of feeling relatively decent. It is very frustrating. I did get my camera out and take a few photos. All my various day lilies are in bloom. They are very beautiful! I also took a few photos of the garden bits that are surviving despite the heat. This morning, however, has dawn much cooler than normal (normal for this summer at any rate). It actually feels nice.

I have today and tomorrow off with a meeting tomorrow night. It might be a Zoom meeting. I hope it is because I can’t seem to get rid of my cough. And I know from experience that the government building will set me off with the least little tickle in my throat. I don’t want to be the major disruption in the meeting. I hope the link works!

I find myself being a bit more relaxed today. I am going to try to just putter a bit around the house and yard. Nothing major. I am tempted to take Stella for a walk, but she is still bed with Chris. I don’t have the heart to wake her. She did get a new collar the other day. One of the local animal shelters (AC Paw) was at work with a donation table. You got your pick of goodies with a donation. So, I picked out a cool looking collar for her. For myself I grabbed one of those rubber wristbands that has their name and such on it. It is a lovely orange color that I can wear year-round. Added bonus! It glows in the dark! I found that out when I woke in the middle of the night and saw my wrist glowing a soft green. So of course, I blurt out, “How cool!” in the middle of the night. I don’t know if I woke anyone.

I see bunnies every morning in the front yard. Since the mower is down the front yard has become much like a wildflower haven. The colors are so pretty! The rain we had has given everything an extra burst of growth which looks nice until you have to walk in it. Then the brown and pokey bits beneath bite into your feet.

I think it is time for me to get myself going around the house. Even if it is just sitting down with my novel. I appreciate all your comments and support! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
