My apologies for the break in communication continuity since yesterday morning – it’s been a rough but promising ride, and, I got my own answer as to how come the phrase/idea, “Why the Caged Bird Sings” has always appealed to me 😊
Maya Angelou’s iconic phrase has appealed to me before I knew who had said it or why. It just did.
And I’ve come to the conclusion it’s just one of those universally appealing truths that fits all peoples and all times, good and bad – and it’s the phrase that came to me when I spotted the bird above in the bird feeder that’d gone empty for who knows how many days before I could refill it yesterday.
And below, 1/2 the main reason we’re able to be back home happily exhausting ourselves replenishing food, water, gas in the car, and of course, the bird feeder – our water is back along with our power! 💕 The water from the spigot may not be “blue” blue, but it was sweet and blue as I could imagine ❤️
The water lines btw, were thousands of cars deep early this morning at the nearest place us, but I was able to get some Ozarka 5 gallon spring water at Central Market, plus about a ton and a half it seemed of fresh vegetables, lol! Smile
So, right now, before I go on a late afternoon walk, then a “very” much needed shower and beard trim, I want to finish this short post. For awhile, earlier this week, during the height of the #TexasFreeze, I was mostly only able to blog, now, recovering, it’s a squeeze. So, hopefully very soon, a better balance all around will shape back up.
Tomorrow our oldest girl is coming in from Houston for the middle granddaughter plus bringing us more H2O.
We’re not out of the recovery woods yet, but just talking about restoring and removing and resetting ourselves is a HUGE plus! 😊
Hopefully I’ll even soon be able to paint again, and post about that again!
Take care everyone 🙏
