This happens a lot. When I finally find time to write, it is after midnight and I have missed the "date window" so my little blogs don't line up in a neat little row. Of course I began this with the Virgo perfectionism goal of having an entry for every day of the year. But I am one of those living things that I am learning to be more patient and flexible with. I am bound to have hibernation periods, my foliage is going to die for awhile, I'm going to show some signs of stress when it gets too cold or too hot.
Alas, I am finding time to get outside everyday even if I don't write about it. Today I clipped a few things with my trusty new Home Depot Titanium clippers and then sat on the porch playing Scrabble on my iPhone. I got to experience a mystical ring around the moon as it was rising. I also tried to cut back my aloe vera plants that took a real hit in the freeze. I was dripping with aloe juice and gave my porch a very healing bath when it was all said and done. I wished that I had a bad burn so that it wouldn't go to waste.
Without this shift in priorities I probably wouldn't have done any of those things. My desk might be cleaner and my laundry might be done, but I would have missed that ring around the moon.
