Today is Blue Friday for two reasons, 1) it is a gorgeously beautiful day with a deep blue sky and plenty of white fluffy clouds, and 2) I am not feeling well so have already taken two naps today and wishing for several more if only I could find the time.

Following a long absence from writing, here I am again.

It is early in the morning here on our farm. The sweet dog is laying on the love seat nearby snoring up a cold autumn snore, stretching out every now and then.
