Wednesday Check In

Yet sunshine brightens after rain,
The darkness comes and goes again,
So solace follows bitter pain,
As seasons wax and wane.
Elizabeth Chase Akers Allen

Good morning everyone.  Haven't been around for awhile, I know.  I'm all right.  I've been busy putting together the family tree book for my daughter.  Spending 8 hours a day typing, then heading to the library to print out.  Just finished it yesterday, and it is ready to go fortunately because tomorrow is the big day.  We're heading out to Jersey tomorrow.  First time Jerry will meet his sister and first time I will meet my grands and great grands.  Just so excited.  It will also be my first time back in that house in 50 years.  A few years back I thought this would never happen, and sadly, as long as mom was alive she wouldn't let it happen.  Sad for her that she has missed out on so much love.

It' s another cool day out there. Looks like we will just head into summer this year, no spring. This morning I am off to get pampered a bit. I'm off to get my hair cut and in a Chinese salon, you get so much more than a hair cut. I'll get a 20 minute upper body massage along with it while I am getting my shampoo. Can't tell you how awesome it is...and, oh, so cheap. Last time I went it was only $20 for the whole thing.

Well, I took the plunge yesterday. I've had a few things on my bucket list for awhile and now that my daughter's book is finished, I can concentrate on something else. Signed up for a herbal class with Susan Weed. It was just what I was looking for. Since I'm not planning on making a career out of this and learning basically for my own benefit and to fulfill a dream, the price was right, and I have several friends who took her courses and swear by her so I know I am not wasting my money.  

I have also enrolled in a  course at the Bach Institute. I've always been fascinated with the Bach Flower Remedies and decided it was time to delve in and really get into it. Who knows where this will bring me in the future. I'll have a certificate in Herbal Healing and Bach Flower Remedies. And with all the nutrition courses I've been taking. Surely there is something out there for me.  Maybe I will get a job.

Have a good one.


  1. I hope your trip to Jersey is all you hoped it would be. And more.

  2. Wish you all the best my friend.

  3. Have a wonderful time with your family, Mary! I'm so happy for you and the new re-connections you've made.

    Yes, I've heard of Susan Weed! I used to read her columns in Sagewoman magazine. She is the best so I'm sure you'll get a lot out of her class.
