Not goin' nowhere...


I'm a bit unsettled tonight. I guess it's because I didn't get to go to see my son's family this weekend, as I had planned. Mountain weather did not make it feasible. It's not a huge deal - we will go next weekend, and will actually have more time there, and I won't be going alone! But I guess the canceled plans just added to the 'confusion' I have been feeling lately. One day it is spring, the next it is winter again. I don't know what to wear, and I am going from one thing to the next, feeling like I don't know what to do, either. (Should I work a bit in the garden? No, it's snowing again.)

I have not been idle, during this unsettled time between seasons. I have worked a few minutes in the garden this week (the few minutes of spring), I have painted, I have woven, and I even went to paint with the Alzheimer's patients this afternoon, which I was going to miss had I gotten to go on my trip. The group of patients today was the most productive group I've worked with yet. They all painted something, and several of their efforts are truly wonderful! (I even took photos today, but don't feel it's appropriate to share them online.)

The photo above is one I took at the cabin last weekend. The tractor is not far from our cabin. It is obviously not going anywhere anytime soon, which is just how I felt about my day today! But the run-off will begin soon. Spring will arrive with some conviction, and even summertime, before I or my garden are ready for it! I will 'dig out' of the snow and mud seasons of my mind and will head out for the next destination, wherever and whatever that may be.

But for tonight, I'm sittin' in my jammies, eating one too many cupcakes, and not goin' nowhere.

Is Booker wearing off on you? ;-)

So where do you want to go?

Actually, I think Booker is just wearing me out! He has spring fever, too, and we have had a few 'disagreements' this week.

I want to go somewhere sunny and warm this week! Winter is dragging out a bit too long, and having it ruin my weekend plans has made me a bit crabby.
