I've Lost a Month of My Life
It's mixed news as my body and mind do not bounce back as readily as they did when I was thirty. We won't even discuss the ravages time has made to me since I was thirty.
I thought you might like to see the one thing I have accomplished in the last month. Before I was completely down I did get the plants purchased for the tropical garden courtyard outside the master bedroom sliding glass door.
This is a fishtail palm. It is really too tender to survive the ravages of the Sonoran Desert. However with the shade in summer and the shelter from frost in the winter I'm hoping I can keep it going.
If you look carefully you can see Lady Alice, from the palace on the flagstone at the base of the planter. The apache cloud stone to the left is a fountain; the water helps cool the space in the summer. Another look at the top of the gatepost will be Little Smoke Cat hoping that one of the birds will, again, come in through the lattice for her entertainment.
That's the news from here. I'll check in now and again as I regain my strength.
