Because, what is there to do…STILL?

A few months later and here we are still.  If you are a fan of Stranger Things, you would understand if I said we were in the upside down world.  Honestly, isn’t that what it feels like these days?  Did you EVER in your life think we would be here?  EVER?  Not I.  Not ever.  “Normal” feels like a lifetime ago.  I am trying to adjust to the new ‘normal’.  I think we do what we need do.  I will say, I wish it wasn’t as bad as it is right now…and I will also say….I don’t think it needed to be.  If things had been done differently.  But here we are, our reality.  Masks…if you aren’t one who thinks that it infringes on your ‘choice.’  OH how I could make it about that, but I won’t.  I just know I will do what I can to help us and if it is wearing a mask to protect you, I will.  Pretty small inconvenience, really!

SO!  Sometimes, I am overwhelmed….Sometimes, I feel trapped…. and sad…and lonely….and helpless.  I miss traveling.  I miss my family.  I miss simple things like going out for breakfast on Sunday mornings with my son.

I am very thankful to be living out in the country.  You all know how much I love my green surroundings!! Right now, thankfully, it is VERY green around here.  Today, the weather is cool, and the humidity is low.  Being July in Iowa, that is a blessing!  The windows are open and we are all enjoying a good weather day before it changes, because as you know, it can change in five minutes around here.

Here are some pictures from a walk around the farm today.  What a great way to ground myself.  No pun intended!
