I do not dramatize. I let life's events come freely
and I welcome the lessons they convey. I stop
struggling now. I let go and know that God
always gives me that which is the most
appropriate for my soul.
this morning, October...Yes!
Right now the rain is falling and
the Weather Channel is predicting
epic flooding, but there is nothing
I can accomplish by worrying so
My week has been filled with foggy
mornings, spider webs decorating the
sides of the road where I walk, mushrooms
springing up everywhere, I love the red
ones, but the chanterelles we can eat! Missing
the eclipse due to clouds [every single time],
marveling at how high the tide has been,
I've given up trying to keep Miss Bette
Davis Cat off my bed, every time I look
she is stretched out on my side. Can a
cat be trained? I am at a loss.
I have been busy in the kitchen, baking
soothes my soul just as much as knitting
does. Apple hand pies were enjoyed, as
was a lemon-blueberry jam cake. I found
myself enjoying these treats right along
with my guys and then woke up the other
morning feeling terrible, I just can't eat
sweet treats like this and feel good.
Now I am back on my plan and today
feeling much better.
Enjoy your weekend, I will be trying
to stay dry and knitting! :)
