If you’re a blogger, do you ever feel like you’ve got some things you’d like to share, but you’re not sure it would take up a whole post?
Do you ever have a snippet of information you’d like to explore, but you’re not sure where it will go?
That’s me today as I link up with Nancy’s A Rural Journal for Random 5 Friday.
Here are five facts about me and my week. I may expand on facts two through five in later posts.
I got out into the yard on Sunday to capture some spring in photos. It felt good, even though I had to be careful on the uneven ground.

The depression that I struggled with in January and February has gotten a lot better. The medication change my psychiatrist made seems to have helped. I’m also doing a lot of talking to myself and soul searching about worry, anxiety, expectations and contentment.
And the writing that I do for this blog helps me tremendously. I had an appointment with my psychiatrist today, and one of the things he told me to do was to keep up my writing!
I seem to meet a lot of dogs when I go on interviews for work. I met a sweet Cocker Spaniel this week.
I also seem to forget that some dogs might not like me. I tend to reach out and pet a dog before I’ve given him or her a chance to sniff me and judge me as OK. My husband says he’s afraid I’m going to lose an arm that way.
Speaking of dogs, sometimes it’s easier for me to talk with an animal than a person. I enjoyed that interview that I had, but I still get nervous beforehand, even though I’ve been a reporter for over three years. Maybe it’s about being so introverted.
Do you find it easier to talk with animals?
My husband and I went to a bookstore in Lynchburg Thursday. One of the books I bought was The Omnivore’s Dilemma, by Michael Pollan. I’m trying to find a way to eat that supports me nutritionally and ethically. I’m looking forward to reading this book. Have any of you read it?
