You're probably saying to yourself, "Boring. This is a very boring picture." Ordinarily I'd agree with you, but this is more than just a picture of a ladder leading from the water to the dock.
This is a picture of Chesapeake Bay Woman.
Can't see me? I'm just barely under the surface of the water but I'm pulling myself up.
I've been away for several days, and today, a holiday, there's no school and no work (at the paying job, that is). Therefore I'm a little out of sorts, not able to get back into the groove of my usual routine, whatever that actually may be. (It involves plenty of sitting down in front of the computer, feeding animals, cutting grass and doing laundry some days, or commuting 100 miles round trip and sitting in an office all day other days. Throw in some soccer games, practices and the frequent, unscheduled life events, and I'd say that's my routine. Give or take an insect infestation or two. Moths anyone?)
On top of it all, this week I am having surgery to remove a tooth and I am not looking forward to that. In fact, I'd rather be tied, bound and thrown into a swamp full of killer fiddler crabs than see that surgeon. I have to go today to fill my prescription for sedatives to take in advance of that happy event.
My point is (believe it or not, I do indeed have one) this will be another week of non-typical events and I will be more out of synch than usual.
Now that I think about it, maybe I'll just stay underwater for a while. At least the dentist can't find me there.
