Entering the Cave

I wish! February…it’s that time again. I live in 2021 so hibernating is not an option but every single day is a struggle….and we are only three days in…yikes! I have house plants, I bought seeds, I am planning my 2021 herb garden and yet…SAD still rears it’s annual ugly head. I guess this is just something I have to deal with as long as I live in this area. Monday and Tuesday the roads were complete shit in the morning but Tuesday and Wednesday we had partly sunny skies.

Yesterday a patient pointed out a hawk in a tree so I grabbed my camera and went outside, without a coat, to capture it. Red shouldered hawks are always around me….It was worth the brrrr.

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow (insert eye roll) and while I love the tradition, I don’t always agree with his answer. It’s always six more weeks until Spring.  I have seen a robin but that has been the only sign. It will be Spring when the rain crow (mourning dove) coos and I haven’t heard that yet…trust me, I listen pretty hard. I just have to make it until March….

Today seemed extra busy with the running around. Maybe because I was trying to get Sam’s Club out of the way so I didn’t have to go near there on the weekend? Plus I needed to make copies of a genealogy report for my aunt. Then I came home, punched holes and stuck the report in a three ring binder before I packed it all up and headed to the post office. Everything just seemed to take longer today? My plan is to stay in for most of the weekend. I would say all weekend but I will need to stop for red leaf lettuce for my Monday & Tuesday lunch and hopefully my Ashwagandha supplement of choice will be in by Saturday. I can make my own capsules if necessary, and they had other brands available but I truly prefer the one I always buy at the local health food store. Other than that…I can hibernate in peace this weekend. (the kids will be with their dad)

Today I fell for some knee. I know it was a marketing scheme to get emails gathered…BUT….I was able to send some valentine wishes to my Outlander peeps in a fun way.

That’s quadruple knee right there! It’s fun and I miss my Outlander parties…I couldn’t resist. I might just have to take Starz up on their offer of $5.00 a month for 6 months? I’ve always ordered Starz through my Prime when Outlander was back on…now that I have canceled Prime I will need to find other options.

I am looking forward to my alone/hibernating time this weekend. I know I will struggle with “I should be doing this or that” feelings but I will fight through it. Mediate, reflect, nap,take a long hot bath, those are the things on my agenda….I just have to get through Thursday and Friday….Zia
