After struggling through the emotions involved with a tragedy all week, I was exhausted. It made me want to go home and pull the covers over my head and wear my pjs all weekend. It made me want to hug every member of my family tighter and call everyone I love who lived too far away to hug just to hear their voices.
But I didn't crawl in bed, I LIVED. I was taken out to celebrate life and Mother's Day by my awesome son and his wife on Friday night. After that I stayed inside the boundaries of my small homestead for the next two days and nights.
I sat on the patio and sipped coffee with family and friends, I finished one project and started another, I did yard work and house work, laundry and mending, I read a book, I watched shows I had recorded on the DVR. I cooked a little, ate a little, kept my mind and body busy and I probably hugged people even more than usual.
And I finally captured a few shots of those noisy Bluejays.
