One of Those Days

One of those days...you know the kind I mean, where nothing goes right, nothing goes according to plan, it feels like your world is cracking and falling apart.  I have had a couple of those in a row now.

Every thing looks fine:


And then a sudden ROAR of wind and the flower baskets went crashing and the chairs went sliding across the deck.  It only lasted a minute and then the rain came.  That's how it goes sometimes.

  1. Gee, that's awful. But, you are right, life is like that.
    Beautiful flowers and scenery, though.

  2. I know those kinds of days -- you just want to scream! I absolutely love your view from the deck -- it's gorgeous. And you reminded me that we have to get our hanging baskets up!

  3. Well, not being unsympathetic, but this is the least of things that could have gone wrong on this day. You have a lovely deck with a really lovely view.

    1. Oh, it was the least of things, believe me. It was just the symbolic thing for me.

  4. They usually come in threes. Be prepared.
    Love your yard and at least you got it mowed before the rain.

  5. What a lovely view you have! The flowers are icing on the cake. Sometimes the cake falls.

  6. Two weeks ago my daughter's family was staying here between moves. My son-in-law was in the shop outside when we all heard a very loud boom. He came running out and said he felt a quake. I thought it was noise from the rock quarry nearby, but returning to my house I found all the items on my bedroom dresser had crashed into the floor. Lamp, perfume bottles, statues, dollies, etc. Still we never heard any reports of an earthquake.

  7. Life is cyclical, or at least our attention to it is. Highs and lows. This week has been a rough patch for you no doubt, but think back when you wrecked your bike. Ultra concentrated crappy day there...cops, tickets, ERs, insurance, pain, bruises, wrecked bike.

    Perhaps you had too much fun with your grandson last weekend, the Universe is extracting some payment. Next week will be neutral.

  10. Oh yes that is so true Olga. I recently lost my mom and now other family members are in hospital. Seems everything all at once. I love your view and hope your week gets better.
    When things are down they only have one way to go - up!

  11. Your deck and your view really is wonderful and I'm sure it helps but some days (weeks) things just don't go right. I hope they are lots better by now. I think the planets must have been in a strange arrangement the last few days because it has been difficult for a lot of people I know. Do hope it is better.

  12. Wow! You have such a beautiful view. I love seeing all that glorious emerald green. We often get those sudden showers too. On the other hand, we don't get those thunderstorms very often though.

I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
