Let’s see what’s happening with me? Well, my blog friends LadyLee and Serenity are reading this really cool book called…The Power To Prosper, a 21-day financial fast by Michelle Singletary. How do I know it’s cool? I purchased it this weekend. I even bought the journal that’s needed for the fast…see the pretty butterfly? I thought it was appropriate since butterflies are associated with change.
*holding book up, waving it in the air at LadyLee and Serenity* SEEEEEE!
After perusing the book, I decided that I needed this in my life. Even if I don’t do the fast right now, there are principles in the book that I can start incorporating into my life. I’ve already begun to think differently about how (and why) I make certain purchases so, that was worth the price of the book right there.
Thought creates change…note to self.
Since, I’ve been dealing with that post traumatic stuff lately, my counselor suggested that I do something that represents life to me. So, with that in mind I started a herb garden of basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary, sage and parsley. These are the herbs I use a lot when I cook so, I may as well grow them my darn self. I love the aroma my little garden gives…and it’s cute too.
About three years ago, I purchased a bird of paradise plant. The thing just sat there and sat there with nothing more than very pretty foliage. I thought that the plant would never “shoot me the bird”…lol. It seems everywhere I turned people had beautiful bird of paradise plants and mine was sitting there with stunted growth.
Well, one morning, I woke up and….WAL-LA!
How beautiful is THAT!? Now, it’s beginning to bloom like crazy! I found out that, it takes about 3-5 years for a bird of paradise plant to mature…oh, okay…I live in a world of instant gratification…3years for it to bloom? Ya gotta be kidding me. It’s so pretty though, it was worth the wait.
My baby girl, Sassy, has been holding her own. She has her good days and bad days…she’s still barking at people when she goes outside to do her business so, if she still has the strength to do that…that’s a good sign.
We’ve told the kids and I think that was the best decision because they’ve been spending a lot of time with her. She’s really been under my daughter a lot lately.
My son has his band concert today and he is not happy about having to wear a tux with tails. Ok, but why does he have to stand there looking like Lurch? I keep waiting to hear him say, ” You raaanng?”
No, he’s not a happy camper at all. He’s gonna kill me for this post… oh wait, kids today don’t know who Lurch is…I’m safe.
Well, that’s all I got for you folks right now…I gotta go get ready for this band concert which, I’m sure will be great.
