Can't Decide

It's one of those days...it can't decide. One moment it's this way and one moment it's that. I find that I feel exactly the same. The day can't decide if it wishes to be sunny...

...or if it should stay flat gray.

And, I can't decide if I want to blog or go astray....and not post.

Miss Fiona prefers when it's not too sunny as it's very hard for a gal wearing a black fur coat to stay long in the sun. So out she goes with me to do some gardening. Out pops the sun and she

...finds she must find a spot of shade to sit about. Pink tongue flapping in and out. Which could be so un-ladylike if it didn't happen to perfectly match the color of her collar.

Then the sun disappears for awhile and these guys get all confused. You know that sunflowers...

...really do turn their heads to follow it, didn't you? There have been some days when I go out to the garden to see them twisted straight up in their search for the elusive orb.

All of this in and out of the sun and my indecision about posting or not, has given me a headache. Well, mostly it's my weather head telling me that a shift in the force is upon us.

I think that I've spent my entire life trying to fight indecisiveness. Always having an answer. Always certain to go left or right. But, lately I'm wondering if I need to be so certain. Perhaps it's all right to not decide anything. I can't decide about that, now, either.

So, I think it's best if I leave you with this guy...

I'm sure he'd love to tell you some gardening secrets. He's quite good at his craft. Hope your day is visited by unexpected pleasures and treasures.

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly aka Fiona's Mom

Well, Holly, in your wandering around trying to decide, you gave us more delightful views of your world! Thanks ... now just find a nice spot, like Fiona, breath deep, relax and absorb some great energy.

Dear , dear Holly - another great post...
Lately, some of your posts have been about
indecision, or waiting...sunflowers, ladies in waiting...blogging less, living more... Like being on the cusp of a change...
Interesting what our virtual footprints can teach us!

It's obvious you are on a journey of change. Being perched on the precipice can be quite frustrating. I agree with Eileen, just breath deep and let things unfold as they will. Listen to Fiona-she's a wise dog.

James said...

Nice garden Holly. My wife would like a garden like that.
I also used to be indecisive, now I am not so sure......

Peaches said...

How about giving yourself a play day, Holly. You could go out exploring. See if you can find interesting places you haven't seen before. Eat lunch in a new place. You know...play.

Sometimes a little Elmo goes a long way....*grin*

I *feel* the indecision and the anxiousness of do-or-don't-do...but you have the answer, as always...

A little borrowed wisdom..

Wanna hold hands?

~love you~

it's good to be a women... we can change our minds a million times and do whatever we want, whenever we want to do it, however we want to do it, right ?

cinner said...

"a shift in the force is upon us"

Oh yes it is Holly. Right upon us in more ways than one. :) I would suggest to you to just do what feels right, but if you are anything like me, and I think you might just be :), it is hard to tell sometimes what feels right.

Your sunflowers are gorgeous. And your little friend there looks like he is full of secrets and mischief... and I have a watering can just like his. That makes me happy.

Nothing wrong with floating along with the current, Mizz Holly, going where it take a body, letting the water do the work.

Of course, I'm an Aquarius, and we're apparently notorius for being indecisive. Oh, well...I can't decide if that bothers me or not...

Lately my days feel like they're teetering on the edge of change...I wonder if it's endemic?

This comment isn't even going anywhere. Sigh.

Shade and Sweetwater,

Sarah said...

I agree hon..sometimes sitting quietly and waiting is the only thing to do. It will come to you - whatever direction you are to take. Know I'm here for ya.
Scootch over I will join you with wine coolers - I wanna draw that amazing sunflower!!
Huge squishy hugs, Sarah

Joanna Jenkins said...

Take a seat and put your feet up for a while, some answers we just have to wait for. It would be great to sit and watch the sunflowers turn while we drank ice tea together. xoxoxox

I was indecisive when I arrived at this post today. I am no longer. Did we just cancel each other out?
