“Demoniac frenzy, moping melancholy, / And moon-struck madness.”

November 15, 2011

It is another warm day, but this one has sun and blue skies. Rain is possible later so I need to get out and about before the rain starts. I want to take full advantage of the wonder of a warm day this late in November.

My deck is filled with piles of leaves as is my lawn. I couldn’t help myself this morning when I went to get the papers. I shuffled through those leaves the same way I used to when I was a kid on my way to school. I’d walk in the gutter beside the sidewalk and kick the leaves as I walked. I loved watching the leaves scatter and hearing the sounds they made underfoot. It was the same this morning.

My brother-in-law Rod called me from the road last night to chat. He, who lives in Colorado, is in Minnesota for business. He travels at least two weeks a month. I told him I was in a bit of a funk, and he laughed and wondered how I could be as I had just returned from my trip to Africa. I whined and complained that it was nearly three months ago. Save my pennies was his advice. I think he’s right. I have a bug, a bit of African flu, and it can only be cured by returning to Ghana. I’m setting my sights to return in a year and a half which will give me time to collect enough of those pennies he mentioned.

Yesterday was a nothing day. I didn’t even make my bed. I did brush my teeth and changed from one set of cozies to a clean set of cozies. Today is different.  I’ve already showered, done laundry, gotten dressed, polished a couple of tables and made my bed. I think of it as fit of frenzy. Maybe I need medication.
