First off I was amazed and much encourage by the supportive and sincere comments you all left for me on yesterday's blog.
Nothing terrible nor dramatic happened. I am OK. Sad, but OK.
The "crisis" has been developing for well over a month. It mostly is in answer to having different priorities and different outlooks, as well as the fact that Craig and I rarely actually talk to each other about anything beyond what's for dinner.
That said, short of taking off by myself, (which may happen) I just don't see making plans to do anything. So no more talk of dreams...
So, what have I been up to this month?
I had several orders for animal heads early this month and they kept me busy. Two horses to a ranch in California, a deer to the UK, a Leopard to Oklahoma, and a Panda to North Carolina. Yesterday I had two orders, but they were both for the book I wrote some years ago so all I had to do was put then in Flat Rate envelopes and mail them. One to Ireland.
Yesterday was one of the first "nice" days we have had this spring. It has been rainy and gloomy forever. I got my butt in gear and did a dirty spring job. We have a tandum garage (where the bird tried to build the nest a few weeks ago) that has a half door. Over the winter leaves and dirt blow into it. I cut a large pile of kindling wood (from scrap and pallets) and pile it up in there in assorted boxes.
Fireplace season is over so it was time to clean it all up and sweep out the area. Yuck. Dirty! I also keep a bunch of rat and mouse traps bated in there. I check them often, but sometimes they just disappear. I found three with dried up critters in them. Double Yuck!
Today I am going on an adventure by myself. In yesterday's newspaper there was an article about the wildflowers in the parks and which were the best right now. As soon as I'm done writing this I'm off to Wilder Ranch State Park in Santa Cruz.
Pictures will be posted.
Once again thank you all so much for your comments. It feels good to know I have friends out there. You are all REAL.
And finally welcome to Jim and Sandie. I hope to be able to share some local adventures this summer!
