It Feels Like Summer!

Today’s temperature really did feel like summer. In fact, it was a new record high for this date.

The family was off to Rochester and I stayed home with little Murphy.  We didn’t do much at all….just basically hung out and chilled.

Last night, in the middle of the night, I awoke with a terrible pain in my wrist. I tried to think what would have caused this and I suddenly remembered!  When Ben and I got out of the kayaks yesterday, I had some trouble “getting my legs”!  I tried to stand and just couldn’t do it!  Ben was up on a bank above me, so I gave him my right wrist and told him to pull me up!  Oops! Being the middle of the night, I then got worried…..what if my wrist was broken or dislocated?  Odd, the things one conjures in the mind when awakened…..

Well, this morning, I was fine. My wrist was fine. Everything was fine, indeed!  A few years ago, I had trouble with tendonitis in that wrist and I had to be careful when I slept because I had a tendency to “fold” my wrist so that it hurt something fierce. I think I may have done that during the night.  To keep from this odd habit, I usually tuck my wrist under my pillow so it’s flat.

Enough of that!

I played around with my camera as the sun was setting…it came through the window and lit up a bouquet of a dozen Tulips.  I am fascinated by light playing on objects and this was just too pretty to pass up!

Tomorrow is supposed to be yet another summerlike day, then the temperatures will subside a little.  Still hard to believe it is March.

I heard on the radio today that the man responsible for killing six Amish and injuring eight others in Penn Yan last year was sentenced to 12 to 24 years in prison.  The story went on to say that in that crash, fifty Amish children were orphaned.  The man will also have to pay $300,000.00 in restitution.  I wonder if the people who lost loved ones would even accept the money.   I realize that the Amish are a forgiving people, but 12 to 24 years for the murder of six lives seems so mild……

  1. You and I were doing the same thing today! I was still watching Beemer so the three of us hung out on the porch! I even had to break out my sandals and crop pants! It really does feel like summer! Ben drove up to the cottage to help our neighbor, but he was home by 5pm. Beemer’s Dad came about 4 to pick him up. I totally agree with you on that man’s sentence…it seems to be TOO mild of a sentence for the murder of six lives.

    Your tulips are still just beautiful! Even more so with the light on them!!
