It is raining and quite foggy out. It seems we have had horrendous weather for weeks. Ice balls, snow, arctic cold have crimped my plans since January. I am cold, I have no hair. My world is coated with dripping grey ice. And we have 6 to 10 inches of snow in our weather forecast for tomorrow. I will just have to look past the gloom and set my sights on those May flowers.
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!
