Bloom where you are planted

It is an old story but also an accurate one. Sometimes the best way to proceed is simply to get on with it. In my little corner of the world I see this daily. The animals teach us lessons always. They seem to understand better than we humans, that there is magic all around us and if we adapt to our surrounding we can and will thrive in it.

Where I live, in Western Massachusetts, it was 63 yesterday and snow melted big time. There were ice jams, flooding and then the temperatures dropped. It was like flying from one area to another and I never left my home. I have water seeping into my basement from the quick change and now, it is so icy outside that town robo calls advise folks to stay off the roads.

The animals didn't get the calls. They simply adapt because that is in their nature. I have begun to think that being flexible day to day is the best way to go. I have changed my plans for today and will do chores inside and at home. Tomorrow is a new day and I will see what happens. Being adaptive makes all the difference between being productive and being frustrated. I choose the former.

Morning Sheila.

28 right now 80% chance of snow starting around 5AM this morning. Tuesday a high of 17.  I just don't see how those animals can cope with this weather.

Life can be much less stressful when you are willing to be flexible.

It's definitely been a rollercoaster of temperatures.  Watching wildlife go with the flow is a very calming thing.

I love seeing that herd of wild turkeys against that backdrop of snow.  And, then there is that squirrel.

Hello again Myrl. The turkeys were mobile when the temperatures were warmer. When it was frigid they huddled together on branches off the ground. The squirrel was in my rear yard. Smart boy. TY    Sheila

Last week, temperatures in the 60's.  This week ... frigid temps, snow, wind, and ice Sheila Anderson.  No need to wonder why people have colds and flu.  The animals are smarter than we are ... and probably healthier ...
