Lazy Sunday 

Wolfie caught a fish

Either her, or her sister, brought me a rat yesterday morning. They left it at the side door, just where I almost stepped on it. If it weren’t for the dogs sniffing around the door, I wouldn’t have noticed it was there. I gave it a proper burial and we went on our way to the dog park.

Wolfie tried eating the goldfish, but she only had one and the rest fell to the floor for the dogs to eat. The dogs loved it, now it’s like a treat for them.

It has been beautiful and breezy and comfortable and sunny here; just the way we like it after sweltering all summer. I was in Ohio for Thanksgiving and it was in the 40’s most days, which really didn’t bother me. I come back to Florida and I have people asking me “and you want to go back to that?” Yes, yes I do. I can take 40 degrees; I’m tired of sweltering and sweating all the time in Florida. There is a reason that the earth goes through seasons and changes, to give ourselves a damn break from the same incessant weather all the time. We all need some down time and the solstice’s switching it up every six months does it. I could go for some down time and hibernation. I think we all could. Especially after this election.

Tensions have been running high, on all sides, emotions are raw and we don’t know what the hell to think anymore. I haven’t been posting a whole lot nor have I been saying much because I just want to go into hibernation. I can’t take anymore name calling or bickering back and forth. Nothing is getting accomplished and all we are trying to do is be right, and that doesn’t solve problems.

So until people start talking to one another  – not yelling or screaming or rolling their eyes or making faces or calling each other names or making snide, petty remarks – really start talking to one another and trying to understand each other and stop trying to be right and start to solve problems, not just bitch about them, I’m checking out. At least for awhile. Until I’ve taken enough naps to decide to get back in the game.
