Yeah, progress can suck big time!

What a busy day I have had!

I did all the grocery shopping this morning, then a heap of ironing, then I went down to the market that mum works on Sundays and helped her out for about 4 hours as she is leaving!

She has been doing it for about 10 years and feels it is time for a change, so she is having a sale over the next few weeks, I was helping her clean up and dust, rearrange some things and bring stuff home to take to the Salvos or dump etc

I am so beat now, will sleep well tonight no doubt!

Thanks, Dawgluver & Princess. You, too, LP. If you will indulge me one more caterpillar, here is a photo of an upside-down Horned Hickory Devil that I took a few years ago in NC - on a persimmon tree.

I'm sitting here watching the howling winds blowing the snow around and trying to think of something for dinner tonight. Preferably something that won't generate leftovers, as I have leftovers from last night's dinner to use up in the next day or so.

been reading this thread for almost an hour now....needed to catch up. Fun!

I'm recovering from emergency heart surgery, a triple bypass, this is my 3rd week at home....beginning to get bored, so I must be feeling better, huh?

Been reading Neil Young's 'Waging Heavy Peace'. I feel as if I've been living with him for the past week or so.....his writing goes down smoothly, like a good ....well, smoothie!

Watching blustery weather outside, and one lone beaver, come up from his watery hibernation to take down little trees, drag 'em underwater.....strange to see in winter.

soma, i'm so sorry to hear about your illness, but it is good to know you are at home and on the road to recovery.:) you have a beautiful spot from where to enjoy watching nature and nature's creatures, going about their daily rituals.

i hope you continue to improve and strengthen, and that you are soon ready to be a better and healthier version of you.

i was missing you at dc, but i thought it was longer, it seemed way longer than three weeks. nice to have you back, soma....:)
