my indoor cat was out all night about a week and a half ago. she slunk past us in the morning and slept all day. turns out she was bit by another cat. she’s been to the vet and had her pills, but she’s still got a little bit of a hitch in her giddy up.
i’m bad at blogging. i used to love it and do it often, now i rarely do it and never know what to say. besides the fact that everyone keeps up with one liners these days. i know that i don’t have many readers anymore, but maybe it’s good to feel like i’m just sitting on my couch, writing down words that only i may read. because that’s what is really happening. all of us, alone, in front of computers.
i deactivated my facebook account. leaving facebook is the new facebook. i look at the computer a lot less during a day and this is a good thing. i’ve three little people who are informed by seeing me stare at a screen instead of them, instead of doing something productive. i don’t want to be that person as much as i’m prone to be. and then there’s the friendship part. i love a lot of people. i miss a lot of people, too. fb made me feel like i had some control over those relationships, that we are still connecting in some form. but it’s not really true. i’d rather talk to someone i love on the phone. i’d rather hear my phone ring and know that they’d thought of me and not that i was one of 350 people they’re checking in with.
call me sentimental. truth is i’ll most likely know a lot less about people i truly care about. but that says a lot, too, no? maybe friendships have their own season. i’m letting winter to come if it needs to come. i’m not so great at that. hopefully i’ll be surprised.
i was out in the garden today. i’ve lived in this house for nearly five years. it’s the longest we’ve lived anywhere in our married life. my plants are mature from years of growth and multiplication. i can walk around and grab something from somewhere and make a plot look any which way i please. i like that. time supplies the increase sometimes. next i’ll be giving it away.
goodnight friends. enjoy your day. call someone you love and slow down in some small way.
