Make it stop...

I'm completely solar powered so this weather is really dragging me down.
Sinking slowly into madness, ha, ha, ha!
Well, not really but close.
Even the dogs are going stir crazy.
Just have to hang on until Monday, when it's supposed to be 70 degrees, forgot that warm feeling.

A lot of shooting at the Range did make me feel pretty good.  I'm hoping to improve my scores next Monday, bad weather canceled this week's league.

Flowers are starting to pop out on the trails, this should be a really pretty spring.  In the meantime, these photos from my garden in Minnesota.

Well, that makes me feel much better, how about you?
I can't believe how much my mood is dictated by the weather.
Or how much my mood is dictated by others.
Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
A little of both I think.
Of course, my mood wears off on others too.
I especially love spreading a huge smile around on a gloomy day.
And sharing thoughts here and in emails and on the phone.
But, this is essentially a lonely life, good, but lonely.
I'm always looking forward to what tomorrow brings.
Some days it's worry, sadness, grief, loss, that sense of missing someone so much it's hard to catch my breath.
Some days it's sunlight, smiles, laughter, loving, knowing the sweetness of a special person, anticipating that first kiss, savoring the last.
It's all good, better to feel hard than not at all.
I want to be right in the middle of it.



  1. Completely solar powered, no PG&E? You must have batteries for light at night. Your heat source is it gas or a fireplace or stove? Sorry to go on but my curiosity got the best of me. Don’t post this if it interferes with the flow of your blog, or edit it if you like. I understand of course.


  2. L-No, not my house, ME, I'm solar powered, need sun to survive. You are funny as usual...
