I never dreamed I’d be taking a walk the second day of February in 78 degree weather. My fashionable sweat shirt was entirely too warm. Yet, there I was, walking the back woods around 4:00 p.m. Poor Addie, I left confined to math homework, which resulted in many tears before the days end. Bloody math.
Here is what I saw.
New, spring flowers. Dying to be given enough warm days and sunshine to thrive…..
Life, life is everywhere. And, if you recall the tragic taking of life last week you will be happy to know the Polish lives. At least for know. As a matter of fact, if she makes it I fear I’ve created a diva. The hot oatmeal and scrambled eggs she has been receiving daily may not sit well when she is out of ICU. Here she is, doing well. You know, I really don’t understand math. I’m thankful for those that do……but. It really is quite evil on a seven-year old’s heart.
Aren’t these lovely?
And these, these are about to burst into lovely, white clusters whose fragrance I adore more than any on earth. I am a lucky girl.
Still, lucky as I am. There are still things missing. Out of whack. Out of time. Out of focus.
For example. Today, there were several lovely bulbs, branches, birds and tiny objects I discovered and wanted to share with you. My camera, just wouldn’t cooperate. This happens much more often than you know, I’m using a 250.00 version, not a 2,500.00.
And sometimes, its frustrating.
An acorn cap, tucked away under the pine needles.
And it’s brother…
Now. Now I normally make it a rule to not move anything I take a photo of. Kinda a self-proclaimed purity. But today, today I just couldn’t seem to get anything into focus. So I laid on the ground, flat on my belly and moved the acorn a fraction of an inch. To where it rested on the small, green foliage next to it.
What was out of focus a few seconds ago was now clear and concise.
I’m not claiming any great discovery here, only sometimes, to get focused….you have to lie on your belly in the dirt and move things around a bit to get it right.
Not glorified or fun.
But practical I think.
While I was on the ground, Noesy thought I was quite odd.
I guess I am.
A wave……..in which I feel a lot like Mulan. Although, I’m not sure why….
Good-bye my friends, thanks for walking with me today!
You are the best!
