As I sit at the table looking out at the cold dreary weather, I glace about the house and see the dogs sound asleep on the sofa and floor. I think I want to join them since the weather seems to be having an adverse affect on my emotions and energy. I was told to use my senses to keep me centered … The person realized that I have always done this and most of the suggestions she realized were not new to me. So today, I will day dream of the ocean. The waves crashing against the rocks, the salty air which triggers an enormous appetite, and the warm sand that gets into clothes and between toes as I walk along the beach while the cold ocean water laps as the shore. Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the spring into summer…
I know that I should be doing something today, but it has been blowing snow all day! I am thinking that since it is cold out baking might be the thing to do. I am trying something that I normally don’t use … a mix for peanut butter cookies. I have yet to find a recipe which I feel soft enough for the hubster, so I thought I would try this form. Anything to get the place a bit more cheery and smelling great.
We went to my therapy session today and it was snowing lightly on our way up to N Dakota. The therapist said I was doing great (even though it hurt a lot. When I got done my husband said we had to go straight home since the snow was coming down harder and faster. I think I agree with him that their predictions of 5 – 7 inches is not far off, maybe even more!
Heading out to the studio, need to dig out so I can work out there tomorrow. Not sure in Carol will be working tomorrow, but I hope so. I desperately need another trim. Short hair is fine, and it may look good, BUT it takes several trips to the barber to keep it short and neat (at least on my end!
According to the weather aps, we are on a storm watch with an expected 4 – 8 inches by tomorrow. Normally I love the snow, but I have an appointment out of state tomorrow. I don’t drive in inclement weather. I could be out in my studio working on perfecting my baskets and doing the cards! But, NO! I am stuck doing mundane things in questionable weather. Just hope it passes us up so I can get up to the appointment and back safely!
Last Oct. I fell on my right shoulder and went to the doctor who x-rayed my shoulder and announced I should have surgery due to a damaged rotater cup. Since I could not afford that he told me to do some exercises and if it didn’t heal up he would send to Therapy. Well, to day was the first of 4 sessions. If I show improvement then it is a torn ligament, if not it is a torn rotater, in which case they can’t correct or fix it without surgery (which I can’t afford!). We will know next week one way or the other. Cheers!
Seems to me that the weather is acting like a roller-coaster lately. One week our highs are in the negatives then we are in the upper 30’s to 40’s in the positive. I am glad I now have heat to my studio. I just got asked to design a set of note cards for the Petrified park! That and my baskets should do great and I won’t have to be in the public eye a lot. Easier on my nerves! Cold front going through this week and then we will be back up the double positives again.
As we draw closer to Yule &/or Christmas, life becomes crazier. We are bombarded with ads for what we have to buy to make our loved ones happy. Our society has become obsessed with following what some suit says at age 5 a child should have his own mega gaming system and smart phone. I’m sorry, but this is not what I consider a worthwhile pastime for preparing for the season. I would rather have family and friends visit on the day with empty hands and stomachs so we can enjoy food and company sharing the joy of the season.
