There is something about gazing at water that calms and relaxes me. I need something to calm me down right about now; between work and kids and athletic schedules and unscheduled life events, and some insect buzzing within the woodwork of my kitchen window which I am in denial about (because surely I do not have a carpenter bee infestation), and the house looking like Hooraw's nest, I am just plain worn out.
I've had a very unusual past few days and find myself more stressed out than usual. The effects of this stress can be seen everywhere I go. For example, this morning I had to get gas on my way to work, and while I did not drive off with the gas nozzle in the car,which I have done before, I did pull clear up to the gas station, parked alongside the mini-mart portion rather than the gas-pumping section, went into the store, purchased an iced tea and just about drove off before I remembered that I did not come there for iced tea, in fact I came there for gas.
All I need to do is focus on this picture and my blood pressure drops several points which is a good thing because otherwise I'd be dialing 911 to report my very own stroke. Is it a full moon or something? I've always been very sensitive to the full moon. I blame it and hormones for practically everything in my life, mostly the bad things.
I have to go away for a few days but am loading up some pictures that OUGHT to post automatically while I'm gone. If they don't post, then I'll just have a stroke when I return. Because naturally I will not have access to the internet, the story of my life, to see whether or not they post.
Tomorrow I'll slap up a picture and a few meaningless words, but Friday --if it loads properly--there will be a ghost story that you won't want to miss. Or that you will miss if I haven't loaded it properly.
Have a great rest of the week, everyone.
