5YAT: Bubbling Ice, Stuck, Happy, Yappy, Nappy

12 December, 2004  Sunday – Warm & 2º

[This post is part of the 5 Years Ago Today Series]

Ice still in on the Glen-side – but it’s covered with water.

The ice is bubbling – it’s as if the river were slightly carbonated. You can hear it clearly from the beach and it’s fascinating!  Dad suggested that if I ran down with a bottle I would have sparkling water for Xmas.

Talked to a bunch of friends about their holiday parties and travel plans. I had a big wave of feeling tied down and sorry for myself. (Possibly in part because I’m sick.)

It’s funny, I don’t feel “stuck” here. In fact, I really don’t think much about the fact I can’t leave the island. Sure I’m frustrated I can’t finish up my taxes, and that I can’t look after my business, blog or emails. But I don’t feel caught or trapped.  Though this feeling of being tied down is fascinating – who knew I prefer to be able to leave at the drop of a hat?

Hens seem happy – 3 eggs. Bunnies seem happy – chasing themselves around the fields truly acting as “”. Dogs seem happy, but yappy during my nappy.
