Maybe I have been too much. This is my pattern:  go until I cannot longer go. Then lie down until I can get up again and repeat.  I have tried many times to changes this cycle, but it is like trying to change the spots of a leopard.  I have been given some good talkings to lately.  But I don't seem to listen until I can't move.  And so this is what I have been doing lately.  So today, we took it a little slower.  We headed to Wakulla Springs and took the boat ride.  We saw manatees, gators, birds of every description and turtles.  It was glorious, restful and beautiful.  Then Christopher went swimming in the spring.  I stood calf deep in the 68 degrees.  I do not swim in water that cold.  We walked through the lodge and looked at the body of Big Joe, the alligator that is famous for his life and death there at the springs.  We looked through the gift shop.  We both love gift shops.  

And now we are home watching Rango.  A lovely day, and filled with beauty and wonder, but a little more restful.  And tomorrow Christopher will spend some time with Ms Moon and Owen while I go to see the doctor.  

Here are some pictures that Christopher took today at Wakulla:

And then we came home and watched Rango.  It was really cute.  It was international night, so we had tacos.  Christopher tried out the new bottle on the Ednarose.  She is only 5 weeks old, and we will try and wean her ourselves:

Now time for bed.
