David has wanted to go fishing for a while now, so today I tagged along with Alexandria and my grandson and even did some fishing myself.  We went to the Cumberland Mountain State Park, and the fish were not biting.  Then we went up Renegade Mountain, and there was actual bass in the pond.  The bass is rather small right now, but by fall they will be fat.

I love the outdoors, but the heat had me asking to come home after a few hours.  The legs still hurt from the other day, so I was a hot mess by 2 pm.  Now I am back home with pillows all around me and between my legs and arms.  That is when thinking can be hazardous for my mental health because I get to thinking way too much about my disabilities, and then I feel like a useless lump on a log.  I have to fight the urge to cry and redirect my thoughts.

Do you ever get down on yourself?  It is a nasty place to live, so try to snap out of it as soon as possible.

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
