apologia

a rough week here, with a cold and a cough that just won't quit. the most i do is dress, drink tea, lay around, snooze during courtroom drama shows, and start thinking about bed around twilight. i have been unmotivated, unproductive, and uninspired, which is how i get when i am unwell.

i missed blogging about leap day. leap day, a once-every-four-years occurrence! i wanted to, i thought about it, but fell asleep trying to come up with some creative angle. and today is the first real storm of the winter; we haven't had this much snow in about a year. and i have nothing clever or poignant to say about it, either. 

so here's a titmouse at the feeder at the height of the storm. it's so uninteresting, i almost don't even want to post it. but i felt like i needed something visual with which to apologize. it was either this or a bad shot of the red squirrel in the lilac, the one who's been running rampant under the house, who's been craftily avoiding the have-a-heart trap, no matter what it's baited with. but that's another story, for another more creative day.

Sorry to hear you're not well, Chris,
Keep well wrapped up, as my Nana would say and get well soon!

PS. I don't know why you're apologising for the quality of your post, they're always great!

I hope you feel better soon. I get as uninspired as you when I am sick and can't be bothered with anything. Good for you for posting anyway. Take good care of yourself.

Sorry you're feeling under the weather. No need to apologize! I think you under value yourself. You are so very gentle and kind. I can 'see' it in your writing and your pictures. You owe us nothing. Take care of YOU. Kisses.
