We’ve watched feet of snow accumulate in the mountains, the rains come down in buckets, the rivers rise and flood, the sun emerge and the temps shoot up to 55 degrees all within just a few days. The forecast is telling us that we will get more rain and wind and storms tomorrow so I am doing food prep today.
Miss G has been with me, ‘helping’ like a great two-year-old. We even had the opportunity to get outside and take a walk. That’s a habit that we started when she was small, but it’s one that’s difficult to keep up with when the weather is really crappy. I tried for a few pictures, but she politely asked me, “Please don’t” so I didn’t.
She’s in grandma’s big bed supposedly taking a nap, even though she was awake still the last time I checked. I’m one of those grandmas that would require she lay and rest, even if she doesn’t sleep, although I think she will.
I’m still finding my writing mojo to be out of kilter. Does anyone want to become a muse? I so lack inspiration right now, but I figure that time will correct this…I hope. Even this post feels forced, and probably reads that way as well. Dull, lifeless and not really worth the effort, but I am making the effort anyway.
It feels odd to say that I lack inspiration with so much going on across the nation and world right now. There’s any number of things that I could focus on to write about, but I think I’m simply tired of that fact that so much is bad, so much is hate, so much is focused on what isn’t right, or fair, or good. It’s not that I don’t have opinions about how f**ked up our society is, I mostly just don’t want to write more about what’s already been said, or opine on the laments of those who want change. It’s all so frustrating, and my voice isn’t going to add anything. So I read my followed blogs, and take in what others are saying, and agree or disagree as the case may be, but I need to remain silent for my own sanity.
The little one is asleep. It’s been a good day here, in our small world, and I’m thankful for that.
PS: Feminist Friday is scheduled for an appearance in 2 days, but I tend to think that I will skip it for this week, perhaps Media Monday as well next week. We’ll see what the days bring.
