Lately I have been taking snoozing lessons from the cat, Homer. It's all about nuance. We have our plushy covers and a humidifier going, houseplants cleaning the air and the quiet of the afternoon. When the sun reached a certain angle through the blinds, Homer decided I needed to wake up. He stood against the side of the bed and softly called "Mom...mom". So I could fix his dinner. We are quite the hibernators.
It has been way too cold to enjoy my Forest Bathing therapy for weeks! The overnight low was below zero. So. I am at the botanic gardens huffing plant gasses. The ponderosa lemons are bigger than mangos. On to find the gardenia!
A dear friend sent a box of goodies for me in my home bound state. It included a throw, tea, pepper seeds, warm socks and marzipan. And the dog whose bling I returned via post had her owner write me a gracious thank you note. My handicap parking hang tag arrived also. Our healthcare cards were delivered as well as some pepper seeds I ordered!
