Even though it was another gorgeous sunny day today, I was feeling a bit like this anemone blossom today--worn, tattered, and blue.
Life has been a roller coaster as of late, going from the low of last Friday with Hubby's father being in the ER, 4 hours away, unconscious and the doctor discussing "end of life options" to the high of only 4 days later (Tuesday) Hubby's father being well enough to be transferred from the hospital to a skilled nursing rehabilitation facility for a long-ish stay to hopefully get back his health after a long year of post-chemo struggles with not eating or being physically active.
It's all been very exhausting, to say the least. I guess I was running on fumes until today when the fumes finally evaporated, and I was hit with feeling... well... blah.
Today, I managed to get out to the garden centers in our area to buy some large pots I needed and found two lovely lavender bushes as well as the bay laurel tree I've been wanting since I found out that a sprig in the pantry keeps weevils out of the flour and grains. Once home, I got the lavender bushes and bay laurel planted in their new homes. I also transplanted a New Zealand flax into the ground that's been floundering in a pot.
Usually when I've achieved that much in the garden, I'm all chipper and bouncy about it. But I'm just not.
Yeah, I'm definitely having a blue anemone day. But, hey... you gotta have one once in a while, right?
