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.

Waxing Gibbous Moon in Taurus > Gemini/4:58 p.m. PDT

"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth." ~ Marcus Aurelius


I had not realized today was going to be a ducking and diving day.

Michael was up early to take bags to the church for the food bank. The alarm went off and I thought it was for us to take the bags; but, it was the 6 a.m. alarm for getting up. Ugh, however, I did take my thyroid medication and was ready to do some more sleeping.

I'm finding I have a hard time to get going in the morning when it is dark out. So instead of it being 7 a.m. it was 6 a.m. This means I have two more hours of sleep. But, instead of sleeping, I listened to music. This helped me to wake up in a gentle mood which I like to do very much.

At 7:45 a.m. I was ready to get on with my day. I like it when I arise with enough time to do my morning things I do. Michael arose and then we were both ready to leave the house for the food bank.

It was good to see everyone and to give and get hugs. Luckily for us the sun was out and it was fairly warm.

This is our first time back since the holiday and there were tales to be told.

After the food bank, we decided to work on the shelving unit we picked up on the side of the road which was free. Love that four letter word. Rain is predicted for tomorrow and with the unit being particle board, we wanted to get it inside as soon as possible.

Michael went to work in shoring up the sides. The shelving unit was a bit on the shaky side and made for concern on how steady it would be and be safe. While Michael was working on that, I went to work on clearing out the two corners where we were going to reorganize.

Once Michael was done with the unit, I took a rag and washed all the surfaces off. Oh wow, what a difference it made in the color (yellow) in general and to brighten up that corner of the room. I love the color of yellow and how it brightens rooms.

We set up the unit and fixed the corner. It turned out instead of us sharing the space, I am going to use the unit and Michael is going to use the shelf in the closet. We also hung a half sun in colors of Japanese coloring along with small posts. Now we have a place to hang our sleeping clothes.

The second corner is to house my necklaces and my earrings. Plus, we have had a decorative mirror to settle in with them and now I have a dressing area and will be able to see the end results before leaving the bedroom.

Now I have visions of other photos to hang on the wall. Michael is seeing things sizing up along his side of the room. Oooh, it's so fun to get moved in. Of course, once we have everything done the way we wan it, is the time we will move. Oh I hope this doesn't happen.

During all of this I was attempting to straighten up the kitchen. Michael ended up finishing it up and got the dirty dishes into the dishwasher and they are being done as I write.

Well, the rain can come now; we are settled in with blooming house decorating ideas.

I guess this is it for now. Have a wonderful evening and an eventful day tomorrow.
