Selling a house. While attempting to buy a house on the other side of the country before said sale is closed. Stressful!
Coordinating the timing of both transactions so that I – and my dogs – don’t end up homeless. Hugely stressful!
It’s crunch time, juggling closing on my sale while searching for something to buy, and I’m not sleeping well. I hope I’ll succeed. I struggle to stay positive. I realize it’s a first world problem, one I’m fortunate to have, but still…stressful.
So, this morning’s jaunt in the national forest, full of wildflowers to photograph, was a wonderful de-stressing time for me. My dogs also enjoyed it, even though it was unseasonably warm. They got to follow their noses, and that’s all that matters to them.
I have so many thoughts and ideas of topics to blog about, but…stress, and the need to focus on other more immediate tasks (of the sort that actually provide income), keeps me from proper blogging.
In the meantime, please consider these wildflower photos – from the forest and from my own wildflower garden – as a placeholder.
Greeting me at home, a host of columbine in my wildflower garden are bursting with blooms in shades varying from creamy yellow to pink and magenta. They enjoyed being under the sprinkler for a few hours.
I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of bumblebees to harvest their pollen.
