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.

"There is no "the truth," "a truth" -- truth is not one thing, or even a system. It is an increasing complexity." - Adrienne Rich

I had planned on going to church this morning but, alas, that did not happen. I had even set an alarm to get me out of bed on time. Instead when the alarm went off, I took my thyroid medication, went to the bathroom, and went back to bed.

I did not awaken again until I heard Bailey (my cat) meowing up a storm. Bailey was on the bed. The clock said 9:15 a.m. I had been all warm and fuzzy and in a dream. The dream vanished upon awakening like the fog does when the sun comes out. One knows it was there but one cannot tell you what it looked like.

I came out to the dining room where Michael was. He was surfing the 'Net. We said our good mornings. Then both of us were in the pipeline of informational overload.

Until Michael decided he was hungry and got up to prepare us breakfast. Yummm, breakfast, today it is eggs over easy with shredded cheese, mashed potatoes with shredded cheese, and crispy bacon. Plus I had a cup of tea.

Since our annual apartment inspection is this Wednesday, I decided to begin organization of what I call my sanctuary, i.e. the second bedroom. Ultimately it will be my office, reading room, and meditational space.

In going through some of the boxes, I found many contained books I have yet to read. I really need to stop checking out books from the library and read these books. Most of them I will either sell at the used bookstore in town or donate to the library for their book sales.

Michael was happy, once he was involved, because in looking through the boxes, he found two more of skull collection. Yes, my darling husband loves skulls. I cannot remember when his fondness of them began but over the years, I have been able to find unique skulls either in glass or resin. Some have flames and others have tattoos. Some skulls have a lift-off top which one can place coins or some such in the space provided.

My happiness was to have my Adirondack rocking chair put back together again. This is my reading chair. I have a table that goes with it. Once I have the room squared away, I plan on placing some of those unread books on the table to remind me to read them. I will need to find a lamp to either go on the table or a standing lamp. Ah, my room is coming together.

During this process, the Fricia household decided to take a nap to ease ourselves into the afternoon. Not much else was accomplished. I am feeling a bit better but my nose is still stuffy and I have a cough. I have cancelled my appointments for tomorrow. I will probably spend time on other areas of the apartment that need straightening.

I had heard last night that Whitney Houston has died last night in Los Angeles, such a sad loss. I watched NBC's Datelines program telling of Whitney's beginnings and rise to fame. I was not much of a fan other than I liked her in "The Body Guard" with Kevin Costner. I had always been a fan of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" but when I heard Whitney sing it, I was sold. I send heart felt wishes to Whitney's family and friends. I can only imagine their loss tonight.
