Ah, the stress of keeping up with your blog. For serious bloggers, i.e. those who get paid to blog, or those who're trying to build a reputation in the blogosphere, the pressures of regular posting have resulted in serious health issues, including the worst issue of all, an earlier than expected demise. Maybe a blog about your health is an inherently bad idea. Since I receive no renumeration for this (really), and don't feel particularly pressed to write 3 or so entries a week, I think I'm probably okay.
It's supremely gorgeous outside today. The forsythia hedge is breaking like a huge yellow wave on a sea of green. How's that for a nature simile? Right after breakfast I set up barbershop on the back deck and gave my guys haircuts. Yes, I remembered to apply sunscreen. That way, the hair stuck nicely. Lest you think I was grooming the dogs (a reportable offense), I want it to be understood that I was grooming the humans. My husband and sons look very handsome now.
Think I'll unplug and take in some nature. Speaking of nature, here's a riot of it. Mariel took this photo last week in the Galapagos Islands.
