What did Little Orphan Annie sing?

Amazing what the sun coming out can really do for your soul sometimes. Thanks to a cat using his tail to open the curtain above my bed, I was up about 6 am to a bright sunshiney morning. Got out, finished mowing the yard, pulled the tomato stakes out of the barn, and contemplated moving some ditch lilies from the back of the farm to the front. Decided I just wasn't that ambitious this morning, especially after doing battle with snakes to get my tomato stakes out. Knew I should have done that earlier this year.

I want to thank everyone for the notes here and the private notes that I got yesterday. It really did help me get through a dark spot. I used to write in a journal when I got in those moods, but the only person who got to read and comment was myself. That didn't help much...you know it's bad when you start trying to have intelligent conversations with yourself. I think the worse, though, is losing an argument with yourself. You know that you have hit rock bottom then. After much thought, I've decided that I'm not looking for love so much as I am looking for someone to be here occasionally. I really don't want someone to be here all the time, but someone who occasionally wants to share a glass of wine, cook at steak on the grill and maybe, if the mood is right, scratch a few itches.

Got on the tractor today and went up to the top of the mountain up behind my house. Shut the thing off and just enjoyed the view up there. The mountains were shades of purple and blue this morning and the sky was a bright clear blue with a good breeze. For the early part of July, temps in the mid 60's was a change. I sat up there for about 20 minutes, just listening to the birds, watching the wind move the hay in the meadow and realized that I really am happy up here. Lonely sometimes, but happy. Noticed a young buck (looked like a 6, but too early to really tell) moving through the wood line. I've seen several young bucks around here this year, plus a good number of does with fawns. It might be a good year for deer.

It's a beautiful day up here and I'm trying to decide what to do next. Dirt is still too wet and soft to do anything in the garden. You know, I might just go fishing this afternoon. I know there is a nice big bass down there just laughing at me sometimes. I truly do believe in catch and release, but sometimes I'd like to catch that bass just to prove I can...

Kisses to all..

Sounds like you live in a little bit of heaven and it is good that you are happy again.
