Not a very inspiring title is it?
But, it seems to be the way things are around here.
These gray days are getting on my nerves.
A container planted in June.
If you could see it now... a few mushy stalks and nary a flower in sight.
I should probably care about making it look nicer as it's right out side the front door, but to be honest I'm just ignoring it until it's time to plant for fall.
Multi colored hibiscus tree underplanted with million bells.
The hibiscus is still flowering nicely.
Despite my best efforts the million bells died a slow death.
I realize this post could look entirely different (in a scary kind of way) if I were to post photos of what these same flowers look like today. They look about the way I feel... in a slump. Sick? No.
Depressed? No. Just in a lethargic, uninspired, tired of gray gloom kind of slump.
Why am I posting this drivel today?
I have no idea other than it seemed like time to put up a new post and the inspiration, interest & desire to do so were eluding me.
I've been visiting all over the blogosphere and decided that that's not necessarily the best thing to do in the throes of a slump. It can make one feel like they should be transforming a room, whipping up a gourmet meal, taking photos like a pro, etc...
I guess it all goes back to that debate we sometimes have in blogland... do we only share the pretty nice things or keep it a little more real? Without prattling on further, I'm here to say while I strive to be happy @ home, in reality there are grumpy days too. Sometimes with good reason and other times for no other reason than being fed up with gloomy weather.
For better or worse I'm keeping it real today.
