Holding My Own

Winter is apparently starting in earnest. It is a bitter cold and windy to boot. And the snow seems to keep falling, even when it’s not. Only Archie seems to be able to keep warm. Everyone else is hunkered under layers of clothes or blankets. Right now Stella is curled up beneath one with Archie snoozing beside her using her as a pillow.

I did nothing yesterday save taking the kids for a ride and getting things from the store. Today I need to atleast get some of my plants repotted. I did get two smaller bags of dirt (I had no idea how much anything was and I did not want to overspend). But I should have enough to repot my orange tree and some (I am hoping for all) of my succulents. Everyone else will need to wait. But I need to do that today. At the very least the succulents need to be taken care of. I should try to call my parents too. I don’t know if I am up to it though. I don’t want any drama.

My body slept until 9am today. My mind was all for staying in bed later. Archie had been out in the living room for a bit waiting for me (I am guessing the first time I woke at 8:30am). My everything just doesn’t want to face the day.

I lied. I did laundry. I washed our bedding and the stuff on the dog bed. I also have done Chris’s work clothes. So I guess I wasn’t a complete slacker. I did enjoy watching the final documentary of In Search of Darkness. I have repeatedly watched the first two in the series. It is about 80’s horror movies. There are interviews with the cast and crew of various movies as well as lots of other experts in the field. I had to laugh. Everyone was saying that there were so many films that they had not heard of. Then there is me, shocked at how many of the films I had heard of and watched.

I suppose I should wrap this up and maybe try to repot a plant. Or work on my writing. I have not done anything but this and the occasional journal piece for weeks now. I was hoping that having the time off and the weather being what it is, would help me hunker in and get writing. Nope. I just want to curl up and sleep. If I must be awake I veg in front of the tv. I can hear the wind blowing outside over the furnace (which is going on an awful lot for not keeping us very warm). Ok, time to stop procrastinating. Thank you to everyone who has reached out, It means a lot. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
