Acceptance

I am learning to accept my current limitations. Yesterday’s limitation was that I used up all of my energy dragging my ass to the doctor’s office, pharmacy, and grocery store. I didn’t wake up feeling well; but when I got home, I was done. I went to bed in the afternoon, got up briefly to…

Crepe myrtle explosion begins

One of the crepe myrtle trees in our front yard has FINALLY started blooming! We have been following their progress all summer, eagerly awaiting the brilliant blooms.
