Hope of Spring…
Here in Michigan we love Tulips. Not far from our home is a yearly event called Tulip Time. Thousands of people attend every year. Not this year, sadly. 91 years in the making, no Tulip Time this year cause of the Corona Virus. It had to be done, people come from all over the world to attend and we need to stop the spread.
Look Up Holland, Michigan Tulip Time. Many amazing photos. I never get tired of Tulips.
My anxiety level was through the roof yesterday. I was in such a tizzy. I have not felt that way in years. I usually can keep it under control. My husband even said “you aren’t going to wig out on me are you”. He knows I am ok but like all do not like the lies of our President. I worked for 3 weeks on our limited income to prepare. I did not listen to him, he said it was a hoax. I watched the news about Italy and my heart broke with all the deaths in mass quanity. With my health issues, age 62 and all, I am now in the house and in place. I walk the dog now 3 or 4 times a day…he loves it.
