Well it’s been quite a while since I’ve put my thoughts out there beyond my Woods. When this heat arrived I decided to slow up a bit. I try to stay cool by not exerting myself so much, by planning my day with small size chores, cooking, cleaning and keeping things simple. I have found that as I age, I can’t fight the heat as I use to when I was younger. So I settle in for a day spent with little jobs and even reading. I still try to read daily, even though I have AMD. My kindle is a blessing, as I try using it each day…I’ve got a slew of books that I’ve down loaded so I’m not without reading material……and it does pass the time in the afternoon. From what I’ve been hearing from our local weather persons, this horrible heat is going to persist thru the weekend and into the coming week! I am so very thankful for the invention of the air conditioner….who ever the brilliant inventor is will be remembered forever by all people everywhere! GOD BLESS YOU! The White Fox and I use our’s each and every day and will for the forseeable future. I look out my windows as much as I can, and no I am not peeking out at my neighbors! I just love to look at the subtle differences in the flowers and even the vegetables out back near the woods. I have spotted a bit of a change in the under growth out there. Across the road and into the deeper woods, you can pick up the slightest of colors and my dears, this is the start of the change over into another season called AUTUMN! It’s these little things that give me a sense of joy as well as a feeling of connection with all things good and sweet. I think you can say it comforts my soul. My Mom use to tell us to stop, look, and be very thankful for all the things that fill our sight and fill our noses…. I believe she was a very wise person. She lived a life that had it’s ups and downs, but she always said ” take time to look for everything God has given us,” it’s a Free Gift to Us….It’s Sunday once more, and the heat is still with us, and most of the United States… I pray this will leave us soon. People every where are suffering as well as all of our feathered friends, and furry critters. All of us need a big break and some blessed rain! Let’s do as our native American friends do…. Have a little dance for rain… I’ll bet it works! ME!
