These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

I feel crappy. I woke this morning with allergies or a head cold. I've been snottin' and blowin' all day long, even after allergy medication. And by now, I just feel icky. I think it is allergies. Ooooooorrrrrrrr .... when I have been under stress, I am inclined to get sick, usually a cold-type thing. Whatever. By this time of the afternoon, I just feel spent.

I'm fixing some tea for now, and after a while, I'm going to have some soup and go to bed to watch something funny. I know some of you are saying, "Soup? In this heat??" because of the intense heat that is blanketing much of the country right now. But it is raining here and the temperature is just 60° at my house right now (4:30 PM), and just 57° in Ruidoso over the hill from me. So, yes, soup sounds very good to me.

OK, enough whining. On a lighter note, I had a very moooooooving experience earlier today when I caught this pastoral scene.

Two cows and three calves in this field were taking it easy. There is another calf that doesn't show in this picture.

I actually have three more pictures I wanted to share, but Blogger is blocking uploading and has been since about 4:00. I was in the middle of uploading four photos, and it allowed this one, than ..... nothing. Maybe later.



  1. hope you feel better soon--rest up

  2. First you brag about the view outside your window...and now you are bragging about the near perfect temps. Gah......

    Hope you feel better.

  3. MJ, I'm sure I will, thanks.

    Caroline, well, maybe karma is knocking me in the teeth because of my bragging?? OK, I deserve it.


  4. sleep Lynilu... You've had enough stress in those 3 different areas to knock you flat... Let your body regenerate, your mind have the resources to come to the solutions you can implement after you take care of the physical...

  5. Annie, I'm actually heading there right now! Tomorrow will be a better day, I'm sure. Thanks.

  6. Feel better honey! I think sinus is a cross we all bear at one time or another (at least around here).

    I need another good T-storm around here!

  7. Daisy, thank you. I have good moments and yucky ones, but I think I'm slowly getting better.

    MQ, thanks, and I agree that most of us do have to deal with it sometimes. Still hate it!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
