Holyoke...Like Life...Is Just Normal!
Sorry I'm late getting my post up again today...UGH! I woke up waaaaaay too early this morning, and I've been on a 'dead run' ever since! I had so much stuff to do, and clearly..CLEARLY..not enough brain cells to wrangle together to do it with?! ^_^
The good thing is that I actually DID do a blog today. Just not "this" blog...until now I mean! :-)) Hubby and I finally did one together. Another installment on our couples blog, In the house....Mr. and Mrs. Wug. The title of the post is: "You are the best decorator ever!"....NOT! (You can click the link and check out my hubby's decorator skills...O_O)
Besides that I've had paperwork to fill out, had people over to take care of cleaning, the backyard lawn has been cut (had to get a jump on those dandelions! YIKES!), hubby kinda sorta pruned the former hummingbird tree...*sigh*...(still a sore subject around these parts.), I've done some studying and.....AND...taken care of some other errands that needed to be taken care of today...You know, normal stuff!
Also, the appeal for hubby's unemployment benefits is today, so I think my frazzled brain is running around so much trying to distract itself with normality until the verdict comes down......Are we gonna be homeless?...in the poor house?....have only a few brain cells left intact?....or just okay...normal?! ^_^ I think you might be able to tell when you read tomorrow's post! :-] ... In the meantime, let me share some photos hubby took this morning as he was roaming around town! :-) ...
I think I've mentioned to you before that we live sorta on a hill...
...Well, sometimes, on nice days, even when it's clear that Spring is taking its own sweet time about showing up, just going up the hill...higher...
....we get a view of normal life in our little town that makes us happy that we live here. :-)
Nothing extraordinary.......just normality.
Somewhere to stand up and look around...as far as the eye can see...Or...
...somewhere to have a little sit down. :-] ...I know it's not that big of a deal.....but look! The sun is out! The sky is blue! :-)
With all of the news reports about the 15 or so tornadoes that caused more damage...in Texas this time,...(You can see two reports HERE...and HERE)...I really just needed a little....Normal!!
Ahhhhh!...Thank you Holyoke...Normal! :-) And sometimes...that's enough!
Sometimes you expect a little 'This', and you get 'That'.
Sometimes you will wave away some dust, but it's a gnat.
Sometimes it's an image in the distance that's right here.
Sometimes all the straining isn't worth the things you hear.
Sometimes you will find that 'pretty bad' has got a perk.
Sometimes a vacation is the thing that you call work.
Sometimes conversation meant to heal can go too far.
and sometimes on reflection you are happy who you are.
Sometimes poetry can be so random, and yet deep.
And sometimes it's, upon reflection, thoughts you ought to keep.
