The Week In Seven Photos

While the great blue herons are staying right on schedule with their spring routines,

I on the other hand was so excited for the first sunrise kayaking of the season that I forgot how cold the water is in the spring and the all-important morning routine of bringing along a cup of coffee to warm up.

We celebrated my mom’s final cataract procedure

along with beautiful signs of spring.

Things took a drastic change when the temperature went from 80 degrees to feels like 22 degrees and I received my 2nd booster of the COVID-19 vaccine. Thoughts of kayaking quickly disappeared between the weather and not wanting to lift my sore arm.

I debated getting the second booster and was questioning the decision again when I woke up at midnight feeling lousy and as if I had been attacked by a flock of crazy red-winged blackbirds.

I don’t know if I was a little feverish or if they tweaked the formula for me, but by morning my attitude about the booster shot had improved drastically after spending the rest of the night dreaming about dating favorites Kevin Costner and Jimmy Buffett.
