I am stricken by all of the above, and I blame in on what seems to be interminable HEAT! When the heat index is 120, I don't want to do anything except wear loose clothing, set the air conditioner thermostat to "meat cooler," sit in my chair, look out the window and sip cold, sweet tea! Even that wears me out so much that I have to take an afternoon nap!
I wish I had a big bowl of this:
I have seriously neglected writing to this blog, and appreciate those who have missed me. At present, I'm not doing anything that's worth writing about. It had been so long since I posted that my sister called to be sure I was still drawing the requisite number of breaths.
I make myself go outside to tend the bird baths and water the plants, which are suffering mightily from the heat. Even an otherwise welcome breeze does nothing except dry them out even more. A hanging basket watered in the morning requires another soaking by mid-afternoon.
Ah, well! I will be remembering these days more fondly when the icicles are hanging by the wall!
I shouldn't complain -- really, I should not! If I stop to think for even a minute about the men and women in our military who are assigned to the Middle East, I remember that they are walking around in flak jackets, helmets, and carrying heavy loads in temperatures that make an Arkansas summer pale by comparison. God Bless you all, my dears, and keep you safe! I am ashamed of myself!
More, later, but not too much later.
