I woke up early this morning, 4:58am to be exact.  I decided to go outside and sit for awhile.  As I sat there, I decided I would just listen to all that was going on in my area.  I could hear a very loud cricket, I wished he would shut up.  It was quiet (except for him) and occasional bark of a dog, the hiss of sprinklers on somewhere, a breeze ruffling the leaves in the trees.  The sky was beautiful, a sliver of a moon, sparkling stars, and odd things moving through the sky.  It was cool but the air was heavy with humidity.  We usually get a monsoon season, with thunderstorms and heavy rains.  But not this year.  The clouds pass through but they don't do anything.  I usually hear coyotes, but I haven't heard much from them this summer.  I heard an owl hooting a bit, and to watch their ghostly image flying through the dark sky is a little unsettling.  For me it has been a pleasant summer, never much hotter than 102 and I've really enjoyed the weather.  But, for some reason it's been a weird summer.  I don't know quite how to define it.  Just a unsettled feeling.  I'm not the only one feeling it either.  I wonder if it means something rough is coming our way.  I don't know.  My test is in a few days, and then I have to wait another week to see my doctor to find out the results.  The waiting is driving me nuts, and my children are a stressed about it too.  It all really affects your life.  It's scary, and upsetting.  All I know is that if the test comes out badly, I will face it and deal with it the best I can.  If it comes out good, I will be one of the happiest persons in the world.  As I blog and get to know other bloggers, and read about their problems and scary times in their lives, I am grateful that I have blogger friends that are willing to share their lives, and help me not feel so alone.  Thank you to all for your friendship.  Have a good night!

i am sorry for your unsettling feeling. and for the waiting you've had to do. that impending 'change is in the air' feeling can be so distracting... hard to maintain normal daily life. prayers are with you, dear.
