Stronger every day

Late yesterday afternoon it was 71 degrees when we went to bed it was still unusually warm. The winds aloft roared and I knew thunderstorms were on the way. 

Acorns from the water oak in the front yard began pinging the roof about 10 minutes before the rain came. Thankfully, all the thunder and lightning never materialized. But once the rain raced off to the northeast, the temp dropped like a stone.

Jilda is painting the last of her Christmas cards so I've spent most of the day on the couch. I'm feeling better every day, but I still don't feel like dancing.

I didn't have any photos, so I looked back through my Google Photos and found a picture I shot last December. 


  1. Keep resting... I am sure very soon you will feel like dancing xox

  2. When I saw the picture I thought it was a garden salad in autumn leaves.
    I hope you soon feel like dancing...

  3. Do you still need the rain?

  4. Glad to hear that you are getting better every day. And also glad to hear that you are resting.

  5. I know you don't feel as full of energy as you usually do but the rest will do you good. Try to enjoy it.

  6. At first glance, I thought it was either snow or ice on the green moss but on second look, I realized it was lichen. Speedy recovery.

  7. Love the textures, and the play of life and death in this deceptively simple picture.

  8. When you do feel like dancing, I want to see a video.
