I don't have a whole lot for you today -- just another picture of our sage, which is blooming much more fully than it was in the last shot I posted. We had so much trouble getting this plant launched a couple of years ago, but fortunately it seems fine now that it lives in a pot on the patio, protected from slugs.
I "worked from home" again yesterday, although honestly I didn't do much of anything because there wasn't much to do. Let's just say it was not a productive day. I couldn't even get the dog walked. Same old story: She was all excited when I suggested it, and ran to get her Kong. But when I put her on her leash and we went out the front door, she dug in with all four feet and wouldn't even descend the steps. Who knows why?
The dog-walkers will try their luck with her today. They'll have her out a couple of hours this afternoon, and every weekday afternoon going forward. I'll still walk her in the mornings (if she'll let me!) and of course she'll be with us all day otherwise so you'll still see plenty of her.
Speaking of dogs, this old photo popped up on my Facebook feed the other day. A blast from the past! You may remember Ernie, one of our old boxers, who died more than eight years ago. In this photo he was sleeping on my Zen meditation cushion in our apartment in New Jersey, in 2010, I believe. God, that seems like a lifetime ago. Ernie and Ruby, our other boxer, were great dogs!
Ernie's pose captures my mood. That's exactly how I feel.
