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.

"The universe is made of stories, not of atoms." - Muriel Rukeyser

Ah, the beginning of a new week and a new month. Why is it we (or at least I do) feel good about having a new month to begin? New goals, new days, it's spring, the moon is waxing, the list can be limitless I guess.

This morning I awoke at 7:45 a.m. Actually I was awake prior to this thanks to Bailey. I scritched him until he decided he had had enough and went down by my ankles and went to sleep.

I began my day with meditation and followed that up with my walk. I took one flower photo and found I had once again used all the memory on my phone. Gee, I guess I need to download more of my photos to the computer to make space.

Back home, I totaled my hours of walking in March. My total hours for March were six hours and 43 minutes. This is pretty good with not being as consistent as I would have liked to have been. However, here is another whole month to work on being regular. I am finding that walking on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday seems to be working for me. On Wednesday and Sunday I usually make these an easy walk but the other three days I go for intensity.

One further note on spirituality, my other feeling about this is that I don't feel one hour a week and once a week is enough. For me, my spirituality is a 24-7 practice. I meditate daily. I read my Bible (although I don't always agree with what I read and shake my head in wonder on where we as current people came up with the thoughts and actions we have said and taken and it is all in the Bible, at least the one I am reading), I read my Al-Anon daily reader, I read my church daily reader, and I read a Celtic daily devotional following the seasons of the year.

Once the reading is done, I put in practice what I read. In other words, I walk the talk. I don't shout it out from roof tops. I don't bean people over the head about my beliefs. I don't expect you be believe the way I do or to put into practice the things I have gathered in from my education about other traditions.

In other words, I use the part of the program on their public relations policy which it is based on attraction rather than promotion. And, I sincerely hope this ideal appears in my writing as well as in life in general.

Nuff said.

Since it is the first of the month, Bailey was given a clean litter box and the former one is getting washed.

I partially cleaned the bathroom. I will finish up the rest of it tomorrow.

After my shower, I decided to give myself a pedicure. Today I used blue nail polish. Spring has really arrived because I pulled out my sandals and flip-flops.

It was really a hard choice:

Do I put my make-up on, or
Do I give myself a pedicure?

Since I haven't been doing the pedicure thing for many months I decided to do that first and my make-up came second. Michael really liked how I applied my eye shadow today. He hasn't said a thing about my toes.

I used my reading area today and I like it. Now I can hardly wait to start on the office area but I see that as a weekend project.

So, it has been a rather good day. Tomorrow's plan is to go to the store to do some research on this unbolted flour. I want to see what I find in our local stores. I feel I am not going to find it which means a trip to a health food store to see if they might carry it.

I had planned on baking some bread this month. Michael's thoughts are we don't need bread because we have a freezer full. My thought, take the bread out and give it to our neighbors. He just rolled his eyes and raised his eyebrows. Bread will have to be in our future. I am kind of bummed since I was geared up for it but oh well.

I am still e-mailing with WordPress about accessing my Words of Mine site. For some reason, I can't get in and no one there is willing or smart enough to know what to do to make it happen. Okay, I need to take a deep breath and keep e-mailing these folks. Maybe the squeaky wheel will get me what I want.

Okay, I guess I have ranted enough for one day.
