So, I am slowly coming down from the election. I do think people in general are going to be wanting to be more involved in their government now that Obama is about to become President. There does remain a question of how and when but I remain optimistic and so excited.
I'm starting to run OK again after having the cortisone placed in my hip. It isn't perfect and I have lost a little fitness. But the plan is for an April Marathon….we shall see. I was supposed to run a 5k today but I got up late and would have had to register at the race etc etc. So so much for that.
I am really so far enjoying my job at East. I was so nervous about it, but it has been very interesting. This is one of the first places I have worked that is really multiracial. Its really interesting I work with nurses of all races and backgrounds. Of course we are all the same since we are Emergency nurses. We are bonded together through commen experiences. I have been well recieved by both patients and staff so I feel very relaxed, which is a change.
Now the Palm tree. I learned this week that Palm trees BLOOM. very cool.
look at that. Its like a huge drooping pom pom of small yellow flowers. It actually doesn't look like a
natural part of the tree or as the more trendy people would say an organic part of the tree. (side note, I really think referring to things as Organic ends, rather than natural ends, is sort of silly.) This cascade of blooms had attracted many insects and at times when I walked by this area it seemed alive with buzzing.
Any way. Palm trees do apparently bloom, somewhat infrequently, but they do it. I learned a lot about Palms. Apparently in many parts of Florida there are multiple laws regarding the pruning and care of trees. Interesting.
