Cloudy

Sun today, maybe? Please?

I need sun for equilibrium. That's not the word. For energy, mood. When we go for too long without sun it's as though the clouds have found a way to tap my energy right out of my pores, and lately I am drained.

Boz, our dog, has energy. (You can't see it because he's saving it for when it's sunny.) He hates clouds. He wants something. He wants anything. He follows me around the house, breathing. He wants me to fix it. This is awful. THERE MUST BE SUN.

When he's not following me around the house he's lying on his bed under his towel, waiting for me to fix it.

The critter on the leaf likes cloudy weather. He and Boz will never get along.

Its suppose to start warming up today!. Also tonite its super moon... CNN says its best seen around 8 (EST). I just saw the moon and its bright and huge. Can't wait to see it tonight.

Ha ha, Dina, whether you mean to or not, you point out that I have nothing to complain about!

Then Dive, of course, who lives in the Dark Time 24/7. I know you have summer in England, I've seen pictures.

Kalei, I think I see sun already! The moon was luscious last night, I'll watch for super=moon tonight.

Raggedy Ann, here. My sawdust leaks out on cloudy days.

Once lived on the ocean side of Point Loma. During June Gloom I could almost hear the snails munching away at the backyard plants...

That's how I feel! I need the sun, just don't get me too hot. That drains my energy too.

Love the snail, just don't tell him how to get to our house.

Excellent sawdust image, Betsy. We must keep the snails from munching at your seams.

I actually like being hot, BD, but I think I'm the only one.

Boz is very pleased with me.

So you had some success with the sun this afternoon? I hope the equilibrium is restored for each you and Boz. BTW, Great photo!

Petrea Burchard said...

Hi, Ms. M! We did get our sun today, although I can't claim responsibility. It certainly helped.
