Melancholy Day

Posted by Picasa

I've been feeling a little sad and tearful. These are just symptoms of some mild loneliness, which is crazy in my crowd of siblings and our progeny. Still, I just can't seem to shake it. This too shall pass. I just need to hang on a couple of days.

I went outside and visited my roses to try to lift my spirits. Maggie, Abraham Darby, and Paul Neyron all looked very healthy and happy. The amaryllis is still going strong. This must be it's third set of blooms, awesome. The Shasta daisies are putting on a show. Isn't that curly elephant garlic scape a trip?

Sorry to be such a bummer.


  1. Aw Debbi. I hope you start feeling better, feeling lonely is hard. No monkey antics to laugh at today? I'm worried about my niece and nephew. Looks like no one's laughing today.

  2. That stinks. You need something good to eat. How much have you been eating on that diet? Even a sad mood is worse when you are hungry.

  3. That elephant thing is cool. I hope you feel better soon :)

  4. Cinj, I'll be fine. This is temporary. Manly has worked many many nights straight. I am just lonely.

    Anna, That actually occurred to me too. I don't think it is lack of food. I think it is not allowing myself to emotionally eat. Therefore, I have to feel my feelings good and bad.

    Ginger, this is the first time I have grown elephant garlic, which is actually a leek. I love the curly scapes.

    Thanks to each of you for reaching out during my pity party. Your caring words have made me feel better.

  5. Deb - just catching up with you and sorry to see you're feeling a bit down. Looks like you need to take an extra long sniff of those heavenly blooms to get your spirits soaring again.


  6. Debbi, don't apologize, feeling down is a part of your life, so let it out in your blog. Nobody's life is all peaches and cream; even if they pretend it is.
    You are right, this too shall pass!

  7. Get a bit of dark chocolate from the health food store--it works wonders. Also--sugar free pudding and low cal cool whip. Eat lots more protein. You know all this don't you.

  8. Flush it out of your system with us, girl! You know I do. It's therapeutic. And you know what, when you hit fifty, you come to like "aloneness" more than you ever thought you would.

  9. VP, The flowers helped. Life it back to normal.

    Nola, I hate sad. Still, like you said, part of life.

    Anna, I busted out the chocolate this morning. Works wonders.

    Brenda, That's the crazy part. I usually like being alone. Just a emotional snaffu. Better now.

    Thank you all for your kind words. Now I am back to the silliness that I really enjoy.

  10. Well, your flowers and photos are beautiful, lucky girl!

  11. Barbee, I need to focus on the lucky. Thanks.
