No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

25th day of lunar cycle
Waning moon in Libra

"Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson afterward." - Anonymous

I woke up this morning not feeling physically well or emotionally. Last week was a really busy week for me and I just don't do busy well any longer. So, today, I cancelled all I had planned to do. I want to curl up in my chair with Bailey on my lap and read the latest library book I checked out.

Duh, I sent my sister a photo text of our little Christmas tree. Only I sent her the text but forgot to attach the photo. How dumb does one have to be?

From 6 a.m. alarms went off, texts and phone calls to be made. Oh I really wanted to sleep. By 9:30 a.m. Bailey decided it was time to arise. There were fur-bys, paws reaching in between my arms to get my attention, and kitty kisses.

"Okay, mom. It really is time to wake up," he said.

"Ahhh, do I have to?" I replied.

A kitty kiss and a nudge of his nose. Yes it really was time to get up. Bailey still is the best alarm clock yet.

I did meditate this morning but I was not focused. I hate it when I can't focus and even focusing on my breathing did not help me. Okay, I guess I just need to be grateful that I took the time to connect with my Higher Power.

How is it when you want to de-clutter, there is someone to tell you why you shouldn't get rid of the item you want to gift, donate, or throw away? I have known in the past I have passed along stuff and at some point, I wish I hadn't but I really do want to have less stuff.

House projects I want to do:

1. Clean up the entry way on the right side of my sanctuary closet door. I have stacks of books and bags of who knows what. Hence, I cannot open the left hand side of the door.

2. Clean the oven.

3. I want to work on my "office" section of the sanctuary.

4. Put together my Adirondack chair for my "reading corner."

Another Bailey moment:

Bailey has been racing through the house. At one point he ended up in his red cubicle with his head sticking out of the top hole. He was looking around and then he takes off running back into to the living room.

I smell coffee. Mmmm, the coffee is good and hot. Michael makes a mean cup of coffee.

Weather wise it is overcast today. I don't know whether we are going to get any rain or not. But by 1:15 p.m. the sun has come out and I see blue skies from where I sit. The windows are open. Ah, another day in paradise.

When it comes to books:

Maybe I should consider when a book is not interesting to me to stop reading it.

What a concept!

Although I would and do feel that I have left something uncompleted when I have actually done this. When I finish a book, it is done. I know for sure I will not read it again.


The first time that Michael took me to his mother's house I remember seeing what looked like a life-like statuary of a pot bellied pig or a stuff animal doll. Until it moved! Oh my goodness she has a pig in the house. I had never thought of a pig as a household pet.

Well, this is it for a Monday. This is the last stretch to the big day. Everyone remember to breathe and remember to enjoy what you are doing. Don't get caught up in that "to do" list.
