it's monday

Ability is what you're capable of doing.
Motivation determines what you do.
Attitude determines how well you do it.

Tid bits from the homefront:
What a crazy storm we had last night. The start of it was lovely – I was so grateful for the cooler air and the much needed rain … soon it turned into a raging storm – much damage all around our little town … not used to seeing tornadoes so close to home … I hope everyone is okay.

Realized [more than ever], last night, that if we listen to the wildlife and to our domestic friends – we shall know. My dog, Sam, is really afraid when thunder starts … last night he was much more than afraid – he hid and was panting so much – I kept putting cold cloths on him – afraid he was going to pass out. And, Lewis, who usually sits on the patio with me during storms was finding a hiding place on my lap … he never has been nervous before this. Even Karma, the bold, strong cat, was nervous enough to sit on my lap with Lewis. We must listen to the animals.

Today is a calm day here in the woods … getting things more organized … getting ready for doing testing with Zack tomorrow … making my plans for Massachusetts at the end of the month – yeah – 40th high school reunion – I am surely not that old.  I can’t wait to see everyone.

I decided that I couldn’t sell/give away all of the Montessori materials I have – my grandchildren may need them someday … so, my biggest job today is to figure out where to store [and still be able to see] all of these lovely pieces.

Emotions running rampant today … good, bad, indifferent … so happy that I am finding my centered place … life is good. My body is not liking the lack of nicotine … though I am happy to be ridding myself of it …

Garden stuff:

Okay – help – what the heck is this? I thought [I planted] 6 cucumber plants – that I was so excited were growing like wild – seems they are not cucumber plants [at least not all of them] – what the heck are they? Maybe I messed up and switched cucumber and spaghetti squash? The leaves and vines look so much the same – but ?????? If this pick looks familiar to you – please let me know … they are everywhere – they are growing like crazy.

A bend in the road is not the end of the road ... unless you fail to make the turn.
