I Dreamed about a Dog and a Car

I notice that a lot of people put pictures of flowers in their blogs. These people are often skilled gardeners, recording and displaying the fruits (or blooms) of their labor. So I took a picture of some flowers too. I did absolutely nothing to nurture them. I have no gardening knowledge or ability. They were here when we bought the house 16 years ago, and they bloom every year. But they're pretty, so here you go.

Last night I dreamed I was dog-sitting and also driving across country (east to west) in a car that didn't work very well. I wasn't sure I was going to make it in this funky car. About halfway there, the car kind of spluttered, and I had to pull over. I let the dog out to pee, get a drink, and walk around. We were in the middle of an open dirt lot in a prairie, and--wouldn't you know?--the dog got away from me! I called and called, and he wouldn't come back. Finally, I was so upset, I had to wake up. So, what do you think it means?

Day before yesterday, I sent my new book to a friend to read. I'm waiting to hear what she has to say. I'm so nervous. I keep thinking of all these things I should have--

What's that you say? Loss of control? Me? What about my dream?

Unreliable car + disobedient dog=feeling out of control=my book in someone else's hands?

Huh? Do you really think so? I suppose it's remotely possible . . .

Here's hoping the dog returns with his tail wagging and a big goofy grin on his face! And maybe that old car will morph into a shiny brand new car that just purrs along.

THAT is a gorgeous hydrangea. I took a picture of a similar one, only purple, while I was in Toronto a few years ago!

I'm having pain issues with my dominant hand, and am therefore getting little writing done right now, and it's making me kind of crazy. I had a dream last night about finally getting into see the specialist and his method of testing was to pull on my thumb as hard as he could until I surrendered and said it hurt. I wonder what THAT meant. LOL
