Abby and I originally planned to go to her hometown of Ryan, Oklahoma, today, but a migraine woke her up in the middle of the night. I gave her her Maxalt-MLT prescription, which cured her headache, but, as always, rendered her overwhelmingly drowsy for the entire remainder of the day. She slept in for a long time, and felt much better when she got up. I woke her by bringing her a scrambled egg sandwich, thinking she would feel better if she ate something, and she did.
It was warm and windy all day, and by about 5 pm, I was getting restless, so I grabbed a camera and went for a walk. One of the most beautiful things about living on 12 acres is that you can go for a long walk and never leave home.
I noticed the very first peach, pear, and apricot blossoms on the trees around the patch, and the first green weeds of spring are appearing.
I went inside several times, but always found an excuse to go back outside and walk around. It’s been a long winter, and soon it will be spring.
