Things I love Today
Knowing I can do it
Ice road truckers [ha]
Connecting with my sister Cathee
Tid bits from the homefront:
The little cat [pregnant] we have been feeding, came to eat yesterday and obviously has had her babies. I tried to follow her, but she is too quick for me. She came back again this morning – looks happy – meows at the door if I haven’t put food in the laundry room for her. So cute. Tiny and never should have been having babies – that is why I am concerned. She has a collar on – and seems to live somewhere – though they are not feeding her [I think she may be a cat that they think should eat the birds and mice – yuck]. I’ll keep you posted – we are going to try and do more sneaky surveillance today.
The veggies and wedding flowers are growing [slowly] – we had a bad week of many storms [pouring rain, hail and winds] – so their growth wasn’t what I had anticipated, though they are growing. And the peas are doing great … Hoping to move them to the ground this weekend. Yeah.
When I began writing this daily journal/blog, I didn’t know where it was going … sometimes I wasn’t certain exactly why I was doing it. I knew, in my head, that I had many things to share … wisdom to impart … experiences that coincide with so many other people’s experiences. During the past couple of weeks, I have not been writing with passion. Truthfully, I have been ‘trying to find things to say’ … because I am at such a crux in my life and I can see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel – whew. That’s all good – though in the midst of my stretching, growing, learning to have a new appreciation for me … I am feeling kinda vulnerable. Not sure what to say or not to say. Those old stupid words keep running through my head: Is this crazy? Will people think I am nuts? How can my shit help anyone? On and on and on …
This morning I was reading Cristina Carlino’s
