A beautiful day to have a bad cold

Sitting on the back porch, with a huge list of things I must
do today in my mind, I hear a loud chorus of cicadas, almost
drowning out the construction of two new houses up the street,
and the roar of airplanes in the air show at the CNE (Canadian
National Exhibition).

Our siamese cat Fiona is bathing on a chair in the sunlight she loves.
The wind whirs through the trees, and I am writing to you.
I have a very bad cold all of a sudden.  A deep barking cough.
And my friend in the Netherlands says I have a good voice for
a horror movie. Funny.

Some bed art seems appropriate for today.  I'll go inside in a minute
and work on my work, drink gallons of hot lemon, and meditate
on getting better. Meanwhile all is well with the world for the
next few minutes.

Have a taking breaks when you can day.

I'm sorry you are sick! But this is a gorgeous drawing.

Thank you so much Verna,

I like it too. There's a painter on my list -- I don't know if she's blogging anymore -- Karen Bruson,
who does amazing paintings of beds. She inspired me.

You inspire me all the time.
