Late in the morning or afternoon, the robin would perch himself on a small berry tree in our native plant garden in the backyard. I just thought this robin was a fluke. On January 21 in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, a picture appeared of a robin with the caption of "A robin sings as it rests on a branch during snow showers Thursday afternoon in Fort Wayne." On January 26, I saw three robins!

Writing for a blog every day is quite the challenge. I'm newly retired and consider my days pretty basic except when I get my assignment for the day--helping family, visiting someone, shopping, thinking about cleaning, and blogging every day!!!
I love to write, and this SOLS Challenge holds me to writing every day. It's a great exercise. Someone said today, "Writing is good for you." Where have I heard that before? It's good especially for writers.
I admit to the same feeling I saw in a comment on another blog post about "struggling to get the post in today."
"I'm feeling the pain as one blogger would say as I started having trouble yesterday and was thankful for a beautiful sunrise. Today, I'm late to get #8 posted. I even took a napkin (couldn't find any scratch paper where I was) and started to write down what I heard on the Today Show--Martha Stewart has a new baking show on her new tv channel. She shared a recipe for pate a choux. Then there was information on the new diet trend of combo-killing (taking 2 diet drugs at once to lose weight, then get a high), about the Duke and Duchess of York (Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, UK), and much more. What variety! Then, of course, there was the news of the world.
Where to go with my writing?
Is it right in front of me or what?
Every day deadlines are killing me!!!Some day, I want to blog about Sienna and Shadow, my son's dogs, with picture, but not today.
Now I'm home again. I saw nothing spectacular driving home (hard to believe since all the snow is melted!!), and all I've done is open the mail from the last 2 days and got a cheese snack. Tomorrow is the dentist which I'd rather not think about, let alone write about!
You could call this writers block. I could write about anything, but nothing moves me today, and I call myself a writer? And oh, my, rough draft of Blog #9 is due tonight!
For now, it's shower time, reading time, and savoring the quiet time--hopefully, fuel for my next blog.

This was my view as I drove into Ft. Wayne early today. I forgot how big the sun can look in the morning when there are no trees or buildings to get in the way.
I had the radio on, and Huey Lewis was singing one of his upbeat songs, and like they use to say on American Band Stand, it had a very good beat. I got so into the sun and the music, I almost missed my turn!!
All I can say is that the power of nature and music can certainly take over the human soul to lighten the load on a Monday morning.
Here's to more of those kinds mornings!

I can't believe I have more things to miss than not!!! Sometimes I wonder how we tolerate the winter, but by tolerating winter, we experience summer, spring, and fall, and I wouldn't miss any of them for all the warmth of summer!
