The Doldrums

I think that word best describes me today. I've been down in the doldrums, for no particular reason. The rock I pulled to leave on my morning walk was

But it was anything but because inspiration eluded me today. I tried to fake it for a while in the studio, hoping the fact of having a stretch of alone time would stir the juices but it didn't and it showed. So I got busy.

Loads of laundry on the line.

A whole bin of pulled dandelions. For the life of me, I'm not sure why I bothered since this vine is taking over and choking out everything in my garden, including the dandelions.

I didn't have the heart to pull this one, since it had found the wherewith all to come to full bloom in a block of cement.

Then because I still had a little time before the school bus rounded the corner, I finished off this jigsaw puzzle with a compulsiveness that kind of scared me.

While waiting for the school bus I found this little beauty.

I would love to know what kind of bird it birthed, if anyone (Snap?) recognizes the shell.

Looks like a productive day...maybe not what you wanted, but still productive. You're doing better than I do sometimes...I tend to curl up and feel sorry for myself.
