Trying Not to Drown in the Monstrosity

“You never really know what’s coming. A small wave, or maybe a big one. All you can really do is hope that when it comes, you can surf over it, instead of drown in its monstrosity.”

I dreamt last of a barn owl flying in front of me, from right to left, but as it was flying it was directly looking right at me, not looking at where it was going. I looked up Owl Totem and it could mean a change in direction or insight about a moment of transition. Then again, it was just a dream so who knows, although I do know that I have never dreamed of an owl before.

Also it’s mums season, here’s a couple of pots of mums that we purchased recently:

One thing we have to get around here is more pumpkins and more mums. Give it that really nice autumn feel, although I personally don’t want summer to leave us. I removed some of the empty pots and ones that contained flowers that were past prime to the shed for winter storage and also weeded a bit out in front of the house. Typical fall tasks as the season gets nearer.

Late this afternoon I kept hearing this siren squeal and I was trying to discover what the hell it was, trying to locate the source of the sound. At first I thought it was outside but when it kept going off I needed to investigate. After a few minutes I found that in the cellar the CO detector was alerting that it was dying. It’s one of those lithium battery enclosed devices that you never have to fiddle with until it croaks (which is supposed to be 10 years but this one seemed to be less to me). Anyways I found that the Home Depot in Avon carries them so I’ll probably pick up a new one over the next week or so and take a ride out there, I want to get the same one so I can just mount it on the wall bracket that’s already there and will fit without having to redo stuff.

The west coast on fire, hurricanes in the south, pandemic killing hundreds of thousands, a leader who is taking us down the wrong path, Americans divided, killing and dying, businesses going down the drain, depression setting in the more you think about it. When will things finally get better and we live the way we all should?
