04:31 pm: ASeries Of Random Observations
When I woke up this morning it was 35F and fucking snowing. I have always hated snow and cold with a passion. The arthritis & JHS have only broadened and deepened that hate. Yes it didn't stick and had quit by noon. Though I'm pretty sure it never got out of the 30s. I nearly cancelled the day.

When I did go out I noticed my grape hyacinths were just starting to break their buds & bloom, which is some consolation. But not enough. Especially if the cold killed them.

Glad I didn't cancel though, as lunch with Angela was fun. We talked for 2 hours.

My therapy session right after was really upsetting & draining though. Yes, at 60 I've decided to add some therapy to the drugs. If you'd undergone the counseling & therapy that I got in the 70s and early 80s you'd understand my reluctance. Annnnnyway. After it I wanted to come home, put on my flannel nightgown, and get in bed with a comfortable book. And I could so I did. Sometimes my luck astounds me. Though I do feel I've paid for it and then some. If you don't agree, go spend 40 years with untreated major depression and then get back to me.

Same here and it has killed the 2 daffodils that bloomed.

We are supposed to get 4 to 6 inches tomorrow night. Bleah.

Our daffodils are still skulking. Nice tall shoots, but no blooms yet.

And the snowdrops have vanished against this morning's snowfall. (Snow at the end of March? Last year it was 20C warmer at this time of year.)

Yes, MKK, snow is pretty, and I hate too much heat, but this is miserable and I want it to go away and Spring to be here. It's weeks overdue now.

I hope eventually the therapy is therapeutic. But it's bound to be hard for awhile.

You deserve every good thing that is now or ever has been or ever will be in your life.
