Hair Cut

I wore blue jeans for the first time in a month since my surgery. They aren’t exactly comfortable when I’m sitting down, yet, but still, I wore them. It is a milestone – of sorts.

Yesterday was warm and sunny. Today is cold and gloomy. Sheesh. Winter!

I hope all of you are faring okay with this flu season. What a horrible illness we (our health system) can’t seem to get a finger on. Wash your hands! Stay home if you are sick – and don’t send your kids to school either.

My prayers and condolences go out to the victims of the mudslides in California. What a horrible, horrible catastrophe to contend with following the fear and devastation from the fires. This may start the reverse migration that happened in the Nineteen Thirties during the dust bowl. Dust seems kind of mild right now compared to fire and mud. (I’ve seen the pictures and heard the stories. I know it was terrible to go through the dust bowl too.) We don’t seem to run out of tragedy and heartache, do we? Again I remind everyone to donate to the Red Cross. They are always there.

The sun came out. I started walking. The sun went behind a cloud. The wind came up. I turned around. Once inside and settled in with a project, the sun came out. I stared outside with my eyebrows raised and my chin lowered. Guess what I did? I started walking. The sun went behind bigger clouds. The wind blew harder. I turned around. It has been a rather worthless day, except I got a really good haircut, so I can’t complain at all, really.

This week is my mom’s 98th birthday. Amazing! Happy Birthday Mom.
