Time Out

It has been a hot minute since my last blog.  I’ve been pretty happy.  And I’ve had many things in between that I’ve thought of writing about, but just haven’t spent the time.  But today…with one more Covid Quarantine day ahead of me, I have all the time in the world.  The time  to think and to strike those thoughts via keyboard into the infinite web universe… webverse?

My fake tree has been erected once again to stand in the bay window of my home. Only I put an extra string of multi-colored lights onto its white lighted frame. That’s me. I’m a color girl. And I know that about myself. And my hallmark Snoopy and Woodstock ornament is alive again thanks to the color strand. It lends its light bulb sockets to power Snoopy’s dog house into sleigh action. And that makes me smile despite my time in time out.

I’m not a time out kinda gal.  The last time I remember being in time out, I was probably 4 or 5.  It was after convincing the kids attending my Mom’s daycare to play “hair barber.”  I was the “barber” by the way.  I have no regrets.

Perhaps tomorrow I will venture outside and see what plants in my garden need a haircut. Winter is a good time.  I suppose there are a few more days until winter, but I feel it is here already.  It’s snowed already even.  

The end of the year is closing in.  This is the calm before the storm for me.  The few breaths before I lose myself in work for the first two months of the year.  And I am already looking forward to spring.  

The truth is…I can’t remember which bulbs are planted where and I’m hoping I planted some early blooming flowers.  I could use some snowdrops right now.
