Autumn truly is what summer pretends to be: the best of all seasons. It is as glorious as summer is tedious; as subtle as summer is obvious; as refreshing as summer is wearying.
Autumn seems like paradise.
I bought this plant last year. I thought it was so pretty and unusual, and for awhile it was. But, I noticed that not only was it not growing, but the was beginning to die. Tried everything I could to save it, but nothing worked. It was then I discovered that there were no roots. The owner of the store had just stuck the pretty leaves in the dirt. Never went back to that store.
Good morning everyone. I had a quiet weekend. On Saturday I stayed in and did some cooking. A couple days this week I have class in the afternoon, and I hate to come home and start cooking from scratch so all I will have to do is thaw dinner out, make some veggies, and dish out the plates. On Sunday I went to church. It was cool. First time that I really needed a jacket. Sunday afternoon was spent reading a short story for Monday morning's class.
Saturday I felt better than I have in a long time. On Friday night I participated in a distance Reiki healing session. Woke up with little pain and so much energy. I felt like my old self again. Suffice it to say I have felt pretty good since that healing session, and as a result, I am going to look further into Reiki.
This will be a busy week for me. Classes from Monday through Friday, pick up my meds Friday afternoon, and then food shopping on Saturday. Won't have a day off until Saturday two weeks from now. I enjoy keeping busy, though.
Last week as I took out my broom to sweep my house clean in honor of the coming of fall. I also chose to sweep away those fair weather friends who do nothing but leave me drained, groups that no longer offer what I needed, and fall clothing that no longer fit my slimmer body. Felt pretty good when I was finished. A lot freer. I also took time to work on sweeping away the resentment and bitterness I feel towards my ex's family. I admit, that is going to take some time, for sure, but I am working on it.
Well, I'm off to shower and have breakfast. Have a good one.
