...It's another! The news is full of the coronavirus, which can really bring your spirits down if you are following it. There have been several events over my lifetime that were frightening to me, but I hoped to get through old age without so much trauma.
Many of the news stories point to a very negative future outcome and that is depressing, especially since I am at the age that seems to be particularly susceptible to it. Then, finding out that it can appear in dogs was the final straw to me. Rocky and I are going to stay in our own house and yard as much as possible, and hope we can escape the worst of it. As long as I get any visitors at all, however, I'm just a sitting duck waiting for the axe to fall. This year would have been bad enough, with a nasty political scene ahead of us.
So when things get too negative or sad or infuriating, I listen to Cuban music and am transported into another world. It's a world of beautiful people who have lived through trauma and bad times, and have come out the other side being much better off.
Today was my lucky day in one respect. Donald can't take me to my dental appointment tomorrow so I had to cancel and reschedule it. Now I have a full week's reprieve! It must be my age that makes it so difficult to recover from the anesthetic, drilling, pushing & pulling on my teeth. When I finally have everything taken care of I am never going back!
I've just checked the 2-week weather forecast and it looks like we will have plenty of rain in March. That is fine with me as I'd like to keep my grass green as long as possible. I started pulling weeds and grass from my garden plots today and have a lot yet to do in order to get everything ready for planting my spring garden. I've started 30 tomato plants from seed (5 different varieties) and they are coming along nicely. I hope to get them into the ground around the beginning of April which should be warming up nicely, and the threat of rain reduced.
I've been trying to get to bed a little earlier each evening, and then be able to get up at a decent time in the morning. I hate to sleep late because then I miss the best part of my day.
Wishing you all the best and hoping the world gets back to a better place very soon. Take care and try to stay safe.
JUST THINK OF WARM SUNNY DAYS AND SPRING FLOWERS AL:))
