Woke Up Feeling Great

I woke up this morning feeling great, it’s the first time in 2-3 weeks I can honestly say that. I have had a cough and a bowel disturbance for the past few weeks, but I didn’t consider myself sick.  I feel so good today I now realize, I was sick.  Guess I was in denial.  I think it’s the first time I’ve been sick in 10 years or so.  Glad it’s over,  time to get on with life and do a little catch up here.

Chile Gato

About a week ago I went on a nature hike guided by Elizabeth Brady, a local gal with an  abundance of knowledge of the local natural plant life. We walked through an area  that was completely wild, meaning nothing there had been planted it was all natural plant life. I learned about toxic plants, for one the “chile gato” plant that has a quite attractive flower and a small fuzzy  tail that is some what a cross between a cat’s tail and the marsh plant referred to as “cat tails”.  I’m glad I’m aware it’s toxic as other wise I would be drawn to it to either pick or touch.    There were many lovely

blooms and interesting trees.  One the fruit grows on the trunk of the tree rather than the branches and another was a parasitic tree, but it also can live independently of its host.

One plant produces a fruit that can be used to launder your clothes with.  Saw a couple img_2133of beautiful spider webs complete with occupants and caught a glimpse of a small herd of cattle who are lucky enough to reside there.img_2146-1   All in all it was an interesting morning.  Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would love to travel to new places, getting ready to do that as a solo traveler. For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and have joined a couple of hiking groups. I'm a reader and love my kindle. I still work some, I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 20 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. The Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that.
