Everything I Need to Know

The depression is back, what with the dismal weather and grey skies. I am forcing myself to not sleep all day, but to rather do something, to move around, to get out of the house. It helps but it is hard to get kick started. 

All is quiet on the paranormal front. Yay.

I discovered a small stand of daffodils emerging in the back yard, about a week behind the ones in Indiana. My friend Lorie asked if I planned to bring any of the flowers here from the Indiana house. Now that I think about it, I would like to have some of the iris and daylilies, and even the tulips and daffs that I have collected over the years. Sweetie wants to dig up and bring the little (8 ft.) Dawn Redwood to go with the ginormous one here in the new back yard; it must be 10 or 12 feet around and over 60 feet tall. The Dawn Redwood is called a metasequoia, and was thought to be long extinct until a stand of a thousand trees was discovered in China back in the 1940s. 

Going back to Indiana on Wednesday, and have made an appointment to get our taxes done. We qualify for a moving deduction! Yay! Any little bit will help, as I no longer have my business deductions; not that I have made much money in the past year. The hardships of bi-state living have switched, as there is no internet or fridge or bed in Indiana. Also, you know about the leap in gas prices. Divide 340 miles by 14 mpg in the van, and multiply by $3.45, and that is what it costs one way. About $84. So it goes.

I have begun another blog, Back Roads and Byways of Montgomery County. Not much there yet, but here is a sample.

Keep moving -- it's the only way. I send you smooches as I too am having to keep moving and doing and not thinking.
