I haven't much new to write about lately. My mind seems to be distracted from the things that normally occupy it. A sideways glance at daily life, a lick and a promise to chores that need doing, a pat on the head to things wanting attention. I suppose it's the mid-winter doldrums where everything seems very "ho hum". I watch the light and shadows that play across the snow, recording them visually, but not really taking them "in". I watch the landscape change....from this
to this. The rain splashes on the big front window, the management team sprinkles salt on my sidewalk, the birds gather and fight over real or imagined crumbs. Ebby races for her stool in front of the big window, intent on catching one of them. The window is blurry with her nose prints. I eat, sleep, talk on the phone. I visit Jean, she visits me. The volunteering at the nursing home keeps its slow pace with the rest of my life. There is little to NO motivation to "tackle" anything additional. The news of the week on the homefront is my first flock of wild turkey sightings. I've never seen them up here in our rural complex until yesterday morning. About 5 hens, it was hard to tell as they wove in and out between the snowbanks. They are BIG! It's the closest I've been to a wild turkey. They looked to be between 28 to 36" tall against the snowbank. Obviously, it's taller than they are...LOL
The "Love Ya Bunches" strippy quilt went home on Saturday with a very surprised and happy DD#2. She adored the colors and love the soft warmth of the flannel backing. I did good *VBS*
Back from the quilter!
