I’m less than two weeks into my summer solstice resolution to post everyday for six months, I’ve already missed two days. My bad.
I’d intended this blog to be light, with daily goings-on in our little personal zoo of dogs and cats. Maybe post a few pictures of my latest quilt project or a good recipe or two.
Then my mom got sick, and declined rapidly. And although I’ve tried, I just don’t seem to be inclined to write about those things anymore. At least not right now. And I don’t want to constantly post about the long, drawn-out, painful (both emotionally and physically, at least for my mom) process of dying. Or about my views about a country that is supposed to allow it’s citizens the opportunity to live free, but restricts their ability to have an easy, painless death on their own terms.
See? Not at all the light topics I’d intended.
Not topics suited for a 4th of July holiday with perfect weather such as this one.
So I will keep this one short, although not sweet, I’m afraid.
I hope everyone enjoys the day off, whatever you choose to do with it. I think I’ll take the dogs and hang outside for awhile while Dennis finishes planting the flowers. I think that’s the best we’re going to do this year.
