Remember when you were a kid, and time seemed to drag on forever, especially if you were waiting for something special (a birthday, or Christmas, or summer vacation to start)? When the Bag Lady was a wee child
She was right, too (actually, she was right about most things, but she was an incredibly smart, talented woman....after all, she raised the Bag Lady!) The Bag Lady sometimes wonders where the hell the time went. How did it get to be 2008? Who turned the calendar ahead so fast? What happened to that fabulous existence the Bag Lady kept putting off until later.... "Oh," she would tell herself, "There's plenty of time to do .....!" or; "As soon as I do ...., I can finally do ....." (you can fill in the blanks)
Well, life happened, that's what happened. The Bag Lady has led a varied life. It wasn't perhaps the life she thought she would live, but there is very little about it that she would change. Well, okay, maybe a couple things. But not very many. She would have been kinder to herself; she would never have started smoking, and maybe wouldn't have eaten that escargot that time (that was 15 years ago and she can still taste it - that shit'll kill ya!) but she is grateful for the experiences she has had, and truly feels that she is where she is supposed to be
How about you? Are you where you thought you would be? Where you should be?
Sheesh, the heat must be getting to her! Okay, enough soul-searching, back to our regularly scheduled blogging!
Here are the sunflowers that the messy birds planted in the Bag Lady's flowerbed:
The bees find them attractive:
And that's how things were at the ranch this week...
Have a great weekend!
