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.

Happy and Stressed

"You alone are the judge of your worth, and your goal is to discover infinite worth in yourself, no matter what anyone else thinks." - Deepak Chopra

I have been in a dither all week. I feel rushed and hurried and I'm not sure why. Nothing is going the way I have it planned in my journal.

Sometimes I query the Universe what this feeling is all about, it is a natural state of being? If it is, I need to be aware and accept what is happening and not come unglued. Don't cha think?

Part of my malady is from my emotional disorders and part is needing to be more aware (let's put in wise here too) so that I may go with the flow. I know, easier said than done.

Even with the ending and beginning of the lunar cycle throws me off when I am not aware of what is happening in nature.

I was very happy when Michael found this bench on Freecycle which we now have on our patio:

Garden Bench

Now, I have a place to sit and contemplate and watch the cycle of birth, life, and death of my plants and flowers. Finding where the sun is during the day. Watching the birds come and go and let's not forget the honey bees that visit the blooming bottle brush bush hanging over our fence.

I love the fact that man of mine is also using the bench to ponder life. I got him when he wasn't looking, hehehe.

He felt so moved to leave his touch on the patio with creating a reflection pool:

With West Nile Virus around, we go out daily and refresh the water. Granted as a kid, I used to collect mosquito larvae and watch them grown up but we can't do that any more.

When we are both out there, Bailey gets to come out. We have to keep an eye on him as he is always looking for a way to get over the fence. He also likes digging in the dirt. So far as I can tell, he hasn't marked his spot. Here he is just inside the slider door; he apparently had enough sunshine and fresh air.

But getting back to fall, I feel that the ending of a cycle speeds us up to complete things that need finishing. We need to have a clean table top for the new things to come.

I happened to like Jane Austen books so I borrowed this from Bex:

I have no idea which Jane Austen character I would be. I am pleased with the choice:

I am Elinor Dashwood!

Happy Saturday,
