i've been feeling bad lately -- tired, grouchy, uninspired, a bit depressed, in a fog. a visit to the dr. on thursday seemed in order. he said he's been seeing a lot of this with his patients lately and he thinks it's mostly the long, hard winter. we've not gotten enough exercise or sunshine plus we tend to comfort ourselves with well, you know, comfort food. so we pick up weight (that's me!), our BP goes up (mine was way up!) and we feel lethargic. even though i consciously knew all this, it was reassuring to hear a medical professional give a name to the reason and that i'm in good company. we decided to up my half dose of serotin-enhancing med to a full dose. i've been on this mild anti-depressant for about 1 1/2 years and it is wonderful for helping me to cope when i feel overwhelmed. so i will take a bit more but the real needed Rx is sunshine, a walk in the woods with my nikon and a long bike ride.nice weather can't come soon enough for me!
i had my nikon our yesterday and shot the above photos around dawn. i love fog and so wanted to be out on a creek bed to capture it creeping along the banks and rolling over the trees.
it's raining this morning and our girls bella and zoe have been wallering in the mud and water in the back yard. when i went out to check on them i caught them digging in my flower bed.
does bella look guilty or what?!! last night was the first time they had ever experienced the rain. when it started pouring they just stood on the back patio and looked at each other. i loved that they just took it for granted and didn't run inside to take cover.
my crocuses are up and blooming! don't they look fresh and springy in the rain?
is anyone having trouble with spam comments on their blog? i am literally hounded with a dozen or more spam comments a day. since i moderate all comments i'm able to reject them so they never show up but i sure would like to stop them all together. any ideas? i hate to go back to word verification but that may be the only way to stop them. any suggestions would be helpful.
have a wonderful weekend!
