  • Lady Laie,

    Yep, fine thanks for asking...I just watched the video you sent, wow, so wonderful, I guess every once in awhile to see that many smiles in one place, well it just does the heart and mind good.I need all the pick-me-ups I can get lately, and that surely gave me a boost.

    Still in a strange place right now, not sure why, it seems to be lasting a long time this time, maybe the holidays coming up are partially to blame, don't know. Should be back to normal one day, I hope. Just can't seem to figure it all out right now.

    Going to get ready for the walk now.

    Have A Good Day.

    hugs and blessings,

  • Sunshine,

    O so sorry for all your troubles, you play the lotto and I will too, and if I win honey, I'll send you all I can to help you pay everything off. I guess we go thru all of this for a reason, makes a person wonder why thou.

    I will pray that things will get better and that before long, you will be able to smile your beautiful smile again...In the meantime, keep playing that music. God has given you that gift for comfort and peace of mind.

    Blessings and hugs.

  • My journey,

    Love the bears, I see your smile and sparkle in your eyes, I am still here, right behind you friend, still holding your hand. I will soon write you the story of my garage sale walk, but right now I've got to go get ready for my walk, I think it's around 26 or less out there, still no snow, but we've got a big storm coming in, so winter will finally be here.

    I will write more this afternoon to you

    Hugs and blessings

  • DD,

    I hope you are still with us...I haven't been lately, I hope your not going thru the same thing that I am right now. Just one big funky mood.

    Really miss you when you leave like this, but I know you are a busy man and life does have to go on. Hope you and your boys are doing great, and that your storm inside of you has eased up some. Holidays are the toughest part, aren't they. Lonely is lonely DD, no matter how you get there, it still has the same effect. I feel it too.

    Hugs and blessings,

  • Good morning all!! I'm back from sunny Arizona and had a fun time with my friend. She took me around to some historical sights and to an art/hshopping mecca called Tubac. My ride was GREAT!! Thanks to everyone who rode with me 🙂 I improved my time, rode 40 miles in 3 hours 43 minutes...kind of hilly and windy, but 9,000 riders in all, 1,500 who rode the shorter route with me. Great support from the providers, though, lots of water stops. I got a medal 🙂 (everyone did but it's my first!!)

    Hope that we can continue to enjoy each day, I like what you posted about that My Journey. Gemmy, hope you are feeling a little better. I think sometimes even the change in seasons with less sun makes a difference in our mood. I had a complete meltdown at work on Thursday, just too overwhelming for me, but ever onward. The weekend helped!

    Sending hugs from increasingly cold northeast!

  • My Journey,

    O.K, here it is. One day on my walk, I passed by this one street the had about three "OUT OF THE WOODS SALE" signs posted by the road, so I decided to walk down and see what they had for sale. As I had never been on this road, I didn't know what to expect. I followed the signs, and they led to this huge beautiful gate with stone pillars on each side. There was one of those code boxes on one side, but the gate was open so I decided to just walk thru. It was totally paved drive, and it was about a mile in, and went down hill to the lake, and when I went around the last bend, there was this huge, beautiful house, It must have taken up two acres of land, it was so big. There was garages, and all kinds of fancy cars, so as I looked around a little further I seen a sign that said Enter Here, so that's just what I did.. I noticed as I walked in that everything that was displayed for sale was Christmas decorations, really beautiful ones, but there was a women in one room and I asked her if I should just wonder around and she said, ya, go ahead. I went into one room, and it had a huge dining table that really had some expensive china on it, beautiful crystal glasses, all set for something, and Christmas decorations all over the room for sale. Went into another room and there was a women running around in there in what looked like pajamies to me, fixing thigs and putting things in order, she just smiled and I smiled back, went into another room and two more people came running thru with jammies on, and then another woman came in with a pink robe and crulers in her hair, you could see her nightie hangind below her robe. I wondered out on what was a closed in porch, lot of Christmas stuff there and a woman and a little boy in her arms, she had her clothes on, and I talked to the little boy for a bit then walked back to the room that I had just left, and another woman came past me with, you guess it, her nighty on and a sweater on over it, by now I'm really curious, so I asked her why everyone was still in their jammies , she looked at me and said because they don't open till 10, and I looked to see what time it was and it was a little after 9, and me and my big mouth I yelled holy c r a p. I didn't know that, when I said that there was dead silence, and they were all looking at me. There was a man there, older man, and he started laughing and he came up and took hold of my hand and I was trying to get out the door and he came right with me. He asked me did I live around there, and I said yes, down the road a bit, and I explained how I happened on the signs and just walked in. He kept saying did I want a ride back up to the road, and I kept telling him no, and he said would I come back later and I said no sir. Had all I wanted of that place. then I had to walk back up hill, about a mile to the main road.

    That's the story of my big day, I thought it was gonna be just a garage sale, but wow, wasn't. I think I must have walked thru half of these peoples house before I caught on that something was not quite right. When I got home and told my son what I had done, he said that he couldn't even trust me to go on a simple walk without getting into trouble, Turns out these people have something to do with the casino in another town, have all kinds of money and even the women next door to me knows of them and she just can't figure out how I got thru the gate and just walked into their home. Told her it was easy, I just did it.

    Hugs and blessings to you My journey,

    Still holding on,

  • Hello pond peeps!

    I guess I’ve been away for a bit – took me a little while to get caught up. Funny, like many of you, I’ve also been feeling a bit blue and outta sorts these last few weeks. I thought things were supposed to get better when Venus and Jupiter turned direct, but reading the blogs I found a better explanation for recent feelings (by Maria DeSimone):

    “The 29th degree of Taurus isn’t exactly a happy one.

    In fact, she’s part of the constellation Pleiades which is also known as a cluster of stars called “The Weeping Sisters.” In traditional Astrology, it’s been said that whenever a planet or point occupies this degree, there will be some sort of tragedy or sadness in the life of the person having to do with where it’s placed.

    I will tell you that in my practice, I’ve seen this symbolism come to life a few times. It does seem to have a fascinating significance, so I thought I’d mention it here.

    This is why I believe that, for this month’s Full Moon, we’ll have some more tears than usual. Not only will we have a Full Moon, which is typically known to bring emotional things to climax, but it’ll occur at 29 degrees Taurus.

    I actually see this Full Moon as perhaps the most critical Full Moon of the year. Something is ending for you now … and whatever it is, you recognize that you need to mourn and let go of it.

    Don’t delude yourself by giving into the Moon square Neptune that’ll be active during this lunation. Instead, work with the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction that will be sextile the Full Moon. Recognize that you’ll have sudden progress as soon as you shed your tears. This will be an amazingly cleansing Full Moon for us. So welcome the tears … after all, they will only make you stronger.”

    Seems to explain much! And I like the message of hope/strength following the period of sadness.

    Gemmy – what a fabulous story! Love how your walk turned into an adventure… Sounds like the people were extremely welcoming even though your timing was a bit off 😉 I think you SHOULD go back and visit more – maybe there is a reason that the man wanted you to come back?? Think about it my dear – might just be some new friends just down the road!

    Cactuss – Congrats on your ride and medal – go YOU!!! 40 Miles is the SHORT ride – geez! Sounds like your leg is feeling better and the dizziness has subsided?? I had a bit of a health scare last year at this time when I kept falling down when running. I went to the doctor who sent me to a Neurologist for testing for MS. The tests came back negative but I still wonder what was going on with the weakness and lack of balance (especially since I’ve been feeling the same these last few weeks – wonder if the season’s changing has something to do with it?).

    Laie – Thank you for the lovely video!! What a wonderful reminder to live joyously and in the moment! How is your Reiki training going? I know that you carry some powerful healing energy!

    Dreamy Dark batty one – where are you?? The pond is not the same without your presence and prose…

    MyJourney – oh how you make me laugh!! Your spirit shines sooo brightly…

    Icey – I am sooo sorry to hear of your computer malfunctions. H E double hockey sticks!! But I guess letting go is the biggest message right now? I hope you and your KING are having a fabulous trip and return to a kinder and gentler universe! Big hugs to you my favorite Moonbeam of light!

    Queenie K – thought of you Saturday night as they were bringing jello shots around at the club!! Keep on being your wild-woman fabulous self !

    Sunshine – So happy that you’re almost healed and I hope that the doctor gives you good news (but also hope that you were able to find a little peace/rest during your “forced” vacation 😉 And I’m glad to hear that some minor repairs have your truck in tip-top shape! And hoping that the hospital/doctors will settle for a much lower amount than listed with your commitment to a payment.

    Namaste,

    arwyn



  • Wow, Gem, what an adventure!! I am sure you never expected that to happen....LOL! That is an interesting story. I wonder why the guy wanted you to come back?? New friends maybe???

    At least your day started with a bang!

    Hi Purduemo,

    Happy to see you! The 29th degree of Taurus, eh?? That explains the insanity going on in here, (my house) I hope the next change isn't so crazy!!!

    My Journey, love all your cute pictures, keeps my spirits going ........

    Hi Cactuss, glad you had a great time in Arizona, I love that place, I would love to go to Sedona, but someday............

    DD!!! Come out, come out, wherever you are............!!!!!!!! 🙂

    Hi Quenkath,

    Always glad to see you, hope you are having a great day, I still gotta get that jelloshot recipe from you.........

    Laie, Thanks for the video, I enjoyed it very much. Hoping you are having a great day, and feeling healthy!!!

    Icey!!!!! Hope you are enjoying China, and the food. Looking forward to your return.



  • Good morning!

    Arwyn/Pur D...glad that you are doing well. Thanks for explaining the astrological influences. I always seem to be the opposite as I'm supposed to be, lol...what is wrong with me? Yes, my dizziness and staggering around was limited to that one incident. I thought in the end it might have been due to dehydration type situation, so it hasn't happened again, even after my ride. Hope that your health continues to be good!

    Sunshine, I have been enjoying my Rachmaninoff prelude on my iPod. Glad that your truck is okay and that you all are too. When do you go back to work? Hope your Thanksgiving is a good one, and that your health continues to be great!

    Gemmy....what a story!!! I thought at first it was just a symbolic story, it was sounding almost unbelievable!! That is so funny!! Hilarious that you got to schlep around their home with them in their pajamas!! hahaha! That really made me laugh. Embarrassing for you though...I bet the walk home was a fast one. Interesting to see how they lived though,,,,like a movie.

    Hope everyone has a good day! Sending out love and light to Icey in China, DD, My Journey.

    Lady Laie, loved the link, my hub and I really enjoyed it. We go to a Messiah sing every year, last year he was in the hospital so this year will be great for that reason.

    It seems I just fall into these situations, I hardly ever go to a garage sale by myslef, really, but this summer I've been getting braver and started doing more alone. As far as going back and visiting, that place is locked up like Ft. Knox, I don't even think I met the owners, I really think all those people were workers and care takers. I think they wanted me to come back later because then they would be open and I would be able to look around more. Up here, places like that are not year around homes, just summer stop overs for the owners.

    Your right about the planets but I've stopped myself from crying for so long now, I think if I start, I won't stop. I just can't seem to shake it, what ever it is, and from what I'm reading on here, I'm not alone. We all seem to be a little hollow and empty right now.

    Hugs and Blessings

  • Sunshine,

    An adventure to say the least, but I fall right into them don't I.

    Sorry, no new friends, like I told P-mo, that place is locked up tight. Big iron gate with stone pillars on each side, not a just walk in and be friendly type of residence.

    Have a good day Sunshine,

    hugs and blessings

  • Cactuss,

    When it was all over, I did continue my walk, and when I thought about it I did start laughing, wow, what a way to live.

    I think all the people I seen were just hired help and care-takers. They probably thought I was crazy, when I walk, I dress like a bag lady, not for looks, but to keep warm. I'm so glad the fellas wern't in their PJ's too. hehe

    For some reason I was more just kind of taken back that I even got thru the gates so easily then embarrassed after I realized where I was and what I was in. Wow, what a place. It just seemed to go on forever. But to tell you the truth, I wouldn't really want to live like that.

    After I walked back up to the road and continued my walk, on the way back I looked down there and they had shuttle busses setting in front of the gates waiting for the man to open them, full of people. I still can't figure out what it was all about. It seemed like a lot of work for a stupid garage sale. Or an 'OUT OF THE WOODS SALE' oh well.

    So far this morning we've had snow, and rain and the wind is blowing so hard my dogs don't even want to go out. Gonna try to walk thou.

    So glad your ride went so smooth, wow, a medal, your really hooked now girl, you'll go for the gold next...go cactuss, go.

    Hugs and blessings

    We're getting snow here today, so finally winter is here, been waiting for it.

    Love, hugs and blessings to you

  • My Journey,

    Where R U girl...Wrote you the story of my last adventure, sounds strange but every word is true. Well, would sound strange for most people, but for me, it's just another day.

    Write when you can, your probably pretty busy now. P-mo wrote a very interesting post about why we're all in such a funky mood, hope it hasn't got you down also. I'm trying so hard to fight it, hope it will be over soon.

    Love ya friend

    hugs and blessings
