(Just rolling for fun)
*I was alone last night while the men in the house went to the World Champion Chicago Cubs game in Milwaukee. The first thing i did, was have a good little cry. Suddenly, I missed my mom. Grief catches me by surprise. But, it is all just part of the process. I felt good afterwards. One of the things my mom would say, “Just let it all out, it is o.k.”
*Time was spent knitting on the lace portion of the shawl. Time was spent adding twiddle things to mitts. Time was spent chatting with Al when she called after work. THAT was fun.
*There was an unexpected fireworks display that I could see from my porch.
*I had to twist something up in my brain that was bothering me. I figured out a way. I discovered that if Zach lived in Alaska he’d be farther away than when he lives in Mexico. Somehow that comforted me.
*Then I took out a good book on perfectionism, and found my new quote to live by: Apparently the Sioux say that when you die, the first thing you ask yourself after your death is, “Why was I so serious?”
Seriously, I’ve been way too serious lately. So here’s to a Saturday of seeking laughter and the beauty that is so clearly all around me. How do you do that?
