I’ve been feeling a little congested and lethargic. My eyes are itching and my head is a tad heavy. I feel like reading Stand Back Said the Elephant, I’m Going to Sneeze! It is a fun little book in which the elephant sneezes and every other little creature is blown about.
I feel like that today (and yesterday, and the day before) and I’m sure many of you feel the same way right now. Aaaaaaaaachoo!
After working outside for several hours yesterday in the glorious sunshine, still raking leaves out of the beds, and still discovering all sorts of things the deer didn’t find that are poking through the soil, I was pretty congested last night. In between sneezes that told me I was going to be inside more than out for awhile, I was thinking about some things I’ve been meaning to do – like downloading pictures from the digital camera.
I take most of the photographs you see on the cutoff. I borrow a few from Tom, aka Antler Man – stay tuned for a report on an antler discovery one fine day soon – and I attach all of them to my postings from my desktop. Until today, however, Tom has been downloading them for me from the camera to the desktop.
Today, however, tada, kaboom, sheezam, and hurrah, I did it myself. I did it! I really did it! Not a big deal for most of you out there in internetland, but for me, Ms. Technologically Challenged, it was a big deal, and I wanted to share my achievement with you.
My point is that we are all challenged in one way or another and from time to time and we should always strive to move forward and learn, whatever our challenges may be, and try to help each other along the way. Don’t you agree?
So, today, I went from this rather forlorn looking bump in the log, sneezing and wheezing and wandering around with my head in a fog,to this lovely little heart leaf, hidden under the winter blanket, that has burst forth with color to brighten my mood.
