Almost Here


How many days until Spring? Less than a month; according to the calendar. Now the weather can show a very different picture. We had very warm temperatures for this area here in Indiana the past four days. I didn’t need a jacket at times.

In a couple of days we will turn around and have winter show its face once more. We are to supposedly receive 6-7 inches of snow, along with some sleet and rain. I knew better to put the winter coat away for good. Indiana is a very good place to live if you like a  variety of weather and temperatures.

Christmas is over, the ground hog didn’t see his shadow. Signs of an early Spring to arrive. Tax season upon us, and the teasing days of Spring. It is a wonderful time of year. New hope arrives with these new days coming.

Time to think about getting out the shorts and T’s and fluffing them through the dryer with a Downy fabric softner sheet. It is time to get serious about losing those five to ten pounds that were gained over the holidays. Tanning places will soon be booming for those early tans, so you fit in with the Florida people on Spring break.

Time to do something with the hair; a different color, cut or style? Time to sit and soak in a nice, warm bubble bath, and pull out that new shaver and take off those inches of hair, we have been hiding all winter by long pants.

Awww, smell the fresh air, hear the Spring birds that are arriving. We are almost done with winter and ready to bounce into Spring.

Monday? Yes

This has not been my day through  no fault of my own. I had stomach cramps last night that kept waking me up off and on. I didn’t sleep very well, naturally. Today, I was supposed to meet some friends for lunch.

I did go, but I was so tired. What happens when you are a senior citizen and you are tired? Most of what can go wrong does. I went into panic attack mode, so had to excuse myself and leave. My sugars were too low and of course I stressed over that while waiting for the meal.

I had been staying in my room way too much over the past few months, so being in a crowd of people terrified me, which set off the panic attack. I went to my home town pharmacy to pick up medications. They weren’t ready, so I became more anxious.

I did look around so I wouldn’t look like a blooming idiot through my panic attack. I was  happy to see that Yankee Candles are now sold here, so I bought a couple of tarts. I then paid for my medications.

I got in my car and the medication bag slipped out of my hand and spilled all over the floor. I bent down to pick them up and scraped the skin off my finger by something, probably a pebble. I need to clean my car out; but will wait until Spring arrives.

I went to  put my keys in the ignition and dropped them. Upon retrieving them, I suddenly began to laugh. I laughed for so long, I was crying. What a day this has been. Clumsy, tired, panicky, and stressed.

I drove home,  put my medications away, sat down on my computer chair to write this, and then guess what? I am going to lay down and take a nap. Hopefully, when I get up, I will feel rested, panic attacks will leave, clumsiness will disappear, and everything will be gently sliding into a new day.


Oh, one last thing. I wanted to mention to anyone who likes photography or my photos, I have a new WordPress blog site.


Goodbye everyone, for now. Hope you are enjoying your Monday, yes, Monday afternoon.
