I am not only sick of winter, I am getting weary of my own pictures, and my own blogging.
Cats, looms, weaving, birds and an occasional pot of soup.
Aren't you tired of it???? Good grief.
You must think that's about all I do.......weave, take pictures, make soup.
Well, you might be close.
Today the crows were LOOMING. They hang around in the trees, and then all converge on the bird feeders.
There is no getting rid of them, so I took some sunflower seeds out and spread them on the ground a good distance away from the bird feeders.
They have to eat, too, or so I am told.
I don't take pictures all day. Honest. But I do always have my camera out.
So when Bunnynose showed up, I was ready.
He has been gone for days, and he was really hungry.
Meanwhile, Bubbalee is as warm as she can be, in the solar house.
While I was continuing my marathon of weaving blue jean rugs, I was thinking about them, and what their life is like. God knows, I have tried to make their lives easier. From the solar house, the heated pad, the bale of straw in the loft, the heated water bowl, food every morning by 9am, I have done my best.
But that doesn't mean that I am satisfied, because I am not.
I want to open the door, and say "here kitty, kitty", and have them run right in. But I know that isn't going to happen.
I worry about them in the road, I worry about them in these frigid temps. I worry about Bubbalee having another litter of kittens that will be wild. I worry about them out at night with foxes looking for a meal.
And here's where the rubber meets the road, so to speak.
Here's where I have to accept my limitations, something I am clearly not that good at.
THIS MAY BE ALL I CAN DO.
There have been times in my life when I beat my head against the wall trying to make something happen the way I thought it should. It wasn't easy to learn to accept the things I could not change. But I had to.
This is no different.
"Acceptance is the answer to all my problems today."
Meanwhile, in one of the chairs in front of the pellet stove, Sydney practices total acceptance.
Why is so easy for HER?
