Around OakMeadows

Around OakMeadows

We are having  a blizzard of caterpillars on our milkweed.  They have eaten it down to the stalks. They are Monarch and Queen caterpillars.  There are chrysalis hanging all over.  The Monarch will fly on to Mexico but the Queens will overwinter.  

I haven't been writing much because I have been so tired.  I manage all right in the morning but even taking a 1-2 hour nap, I am just wiped out all afternoon.  I don't know if it is age related, if it is from the CMT, or something else.  I am going for my annual physical next week and hope to get some answers.  

I did get my quilt back from the lady who machine quilted it for me and it is very nice. It cost $116.22 for her to layer it, quilt it, and bind it.  I think it was a bargain!! I have another quilt top ready for her.  

Tonight is the third debate. I'm not going to watch. I've already voted and just wish I could fast forward to Hillary's inauguration and be done with it.  I cannot express how much I am looking forward to never, ever hearing or seeing Donald Trump again!!!

We have monarchs, too, since we put milkweed plants in the yard. Not a whole bunch like you have, though. But having monarchs at all in Hawaii is a kick. Someone must have brought them in; they are not native.
The fatigue could be the change of weather. I'm a little weary myself today after a flu shot yesterday and then going up to around 4,000 feet to see a lava display. It was cold up there.
Hope it's nothing worrisome.
I can hardly wait for this election to be over.

You did well to skip the debate .... our candidate won it hands down as of course you know by now, but just the voice of Trump makes me shiver and I couldn't get to sleep. Oregon ballots will be in the mail soon, it is all vote by mail here.

I hope you get some answers. Fatigue is an ever present companion with me.. I have to bargain and prioritize as I can't do everything that I want....
