This was my view yesterday morning on my walk in the river valley before work. This morning we couldn't even see the downtown skyline because of the smoke from the forest fires raging north of us. High Level is almost 750 km north of us and the wind has driven the smoke south. The sun is an eerie orange color and it smells like smoke.
The trees are all blooming which is lovely.
The poor cat hasn't figured out how to open the retractable screen door, yet. I imagine she will. The dog has it figured out. She just runs at if head on and it snaps back. We have a neighbor cat that spends a lot of time outdoors; it was a barn cat when it was born. The little girl next door loves picking him up and throwing him outside. I like seeing cats outside, despite the coyotes and cars but our cat takes a much dimmer view of having a strange cat in her yard, eating her catnip, laying on her deck. Bagheera now spends countless hours staring out of the window, ever vigilant.
I'm feeling much better. I stopped the pepcid and three days later the depression has lifted, no thoughts of death. My doctor doesn't really believe me but this is the second time that this has happened on pepcid and it happens very quickly; I go straight to feeling suicidal which is very scary. I can take pepcid once in awhile but if I take it daily, it's bad.
I'm going to pick up my grandson soon and we're going to the nursery to buy more plants. The big guy has built me another planter and he requested vegetables and herbs, so we're off.
