One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.— Paulo Coelho
Tid bits from the homefront:
Such a lovely weekend … Worked in the yard and garden, helped my neighbors with the painting of their new home, went to Briggen’s graduation party, enjoyed a beautiful lunch with the
. Again, I am so grateful they are all okay – after the devastation of that tornado that ripped through their property last week. I’ve never seen anything like it. Trees picked off half-way up, other huge trees ripped right out of the ground. So scary. It seems that Mother Nature has been pissed off lately. Hoovers
Lovely weekend … until the end of Sunday. I have seen in the movies how the yellow jackets chase humans – though had never experienced it. I could have lived without that. I felt a sting on my hand, while working on the pool, and I swatted it … big mistake … the whole fam came after me … chasing and stinging me like crazy … I do now know that I guess I don’t have an allergic reaction to bee stings – that part is good, right …
I am trying to change up my daily routines [any suggestions would be much appreciated], hoping it makes the no smoking thing a complete reality. I am doing great with it … not smoking … though so many things I do [did] during the day usually involved taking a cigarette break. I started drinking tea [rather than coffee] in the morning. I’m not crazy about tea – but I don’t think of lighting a cigarette while drinking it – that is a good thing. It is strange the way your whole body changes – likes, dislikes, etc. Craving food I usually don’t think about – not wanting food that I usually love. It is weird. I’m not going to waste my time or energy anymore kicking myself in the ass for smoking all of these years [although it really was dumb] – focusing only on being finished with it.
I was feeling badly because I am behind in things I should have done – things I told others I would do – etc. etc. I decided I can’t worry about that right now – because it takes much energy to change this stupid habit … and that has to be my main focus – for me. In a week or two, I will be running full speed ahead once again … and everything will get done.
I had planned to add more photos of my wondrous garden – it will have to wait until tomorrow – Tonight Brad will wear the bee suit and get rid of the yellow jacket nests in the yard. Back to normal garden 'stuff' tomorrow.
Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say "yes" to life?" — Paulo Coelho
I hope everyone is having a great start to a great week.
Until tomorrow xo♥
Be what you want the world to be
