I’m feeling mellow tonight y’all. Full of chatter on nothing particular that matters I fear but when has that stopped me from going on and on?
Glen’s at band practice, so here I sit luxuriating with Dandy and Buster, deck door open, messy table, big cup of Via and no noise but nature — ommmmm. Such a treat to find calm moments in the middle of the chaotic life that most of us have in place. We sure do. I”m not complaining — mostly I love all the hubbub — but it just makes calm moments, like these for me tonight, that much more appreciated.
So today was a twists and turns day and I had to breathe my way through some anxiousness a couple of times. Most frustrating for me, because I am far too close to it and excited about it, was that I was supposed to get to check on my book’s interior pages today and Amazon and I don’t seem to be clicking on the same page. (get it? page? tied that right in there ) I’m hoping they’ll have something for me tomorrow but it could be as late as late next week which I hate but will deal with. When I stopped and paused and remembered that life is always in perfect order, it reminded me that whatever day it comes out, is the day its supposed to, so all is well. But c’mon Amazon, hurry! I’m really only six inside and have the patience of that age.
I have had a really busy weekend planned. I have just tonight open and then the rest of the weekend I’m heading on a girlfriend road trip. That was my plans right up to late this afternoon, when the daughter we were going to visit, got hit hard with the flu, and our trip got postponed. It served as just another reminder that life is easiest when you’re easy with it. It does that twisting and turning and I am my happiest when I flow with it instead of trying to swim against it. Anyways, I think it has my back once again, because by not going tomorrow, I have time to work with Amazon. Plus, it’s “found” time to tackle the long list of things I was going to be jamming in after work this next week. So you see, Ally’s throwing up is my good fortune. Get better cute girl!
Mom and I were talking today how a month anymore seems like a week used to. Do you feel that way? They all go by sooooo fast. Monday is October people! I love fall and I’ve already lost one of those months! What the what? I barely got to know September.
And not to brag to those of you in the roasting hot parts of the country but our September truly was spectacular pretty much everyday. So beautiful. We didn’t get summer till July but from then on it was one of the best. Last night coming home there was a gorgeous autumn, almost-full moon out. And this morning on my way to work, there was a stunning, smoky sunrise with a rainbow in the middle of it. Hello amazing. I feel spoiled to the core to live in the Northwest.
Hope you feel the same way about wherever you live. It’s important to feel spoiled and appreciate the beauty around us. Flow, baby, flow!
