Hello to all,
Last week we had a real snow storm, and it stayed cold for awhile, now this week, it is beautiful, the way spring is supposed to be. A little chilly, but ice is finally all gone from the lake, I took a walk yesterday afternoon, and it was so warm and nice, that I had to shed my coat and so I didn't have to carry it all the way, I stuck it in my mailbox. A big beautiful deer went across the road, right in front of me. Since they had that big Coyote kill, it seems the deer have come out of hiding. It seem almost everything has, the bunnies and fox. I do not like anything being killed, I prefer to let nature take care of her own.
To the questions about my house being for sale yet, yep, I never took it off of the market. We had a really easy winter here, so that made for not many snow mobilers and people coming up for winter to look at anything. Did have one couple looking at it, came back three times, then nothing. As anxious as I am to sell, I guess this is a test of my patience. Which is seems I am running out of. Had another couple that looked at it too, but they never came back...Was for their son and he has 4 boys and the house just wasn't big enough for what he needed. So that's that and I wait.
My journey, miss you my friend. I got up to make a move with you and you are gone again. I will wait for you, still have your hand in mine. Praying for God to give you peace and sunshine, to give you what you need to make it thru each day until you can stand on your own again.
Cactuss, Hope your kitchen turns out to be beautiful. When I walked yesterday, I did get invited into the house I liked down the road, that I would consider buying if I sell mine, it was really a cute home...Could see me living there, Maybe, but the kitchen is just to small. Would have to redo it and not sure if I want to take on that again...Have been thru a few remodelings and loved the outcome, but hated the mess. I also wanted more property for my animals and wanted to get on the other end of town..A new beginning, so to speak...It seems that it is something I have to do, Start over. But can't until this house sells, am still in limbo.
Lady Laie, I know it will all get to me when it's time, but it seems that I have been waiting for so long now my patience is wearing thin. I keep telling myself, everything in it's own time.I can do it, I can do it, and I will do it. When it comes, whatever it is, I will be ready. I have to make the move and get everything in order again and wait for the next adventure. I hope your well and all is right in your world.
P-Mo, still playing cards and still getting out, the card games should be over pretty soon, only a winter thing. I don't mind thou. Yes, the sun is once again on my face and blessing our world and making it warm. Soon the flowers will be starting to bloom here and the grass will grow. And this year, I have made up my mind to find new paths thru the woods to walk on and explore.I have seen so much run into the woods that I want to see where they go, and I have that freedom to do it. I still have my mace, in case, (as my son puts it). I'm afraid he doesn't share my need for adventure..He loves the animals as I do and nature, but doesn't seem to have the need to disappear into it. Will be writing about what I find out..
Icy, It sound like your still taking a pounding, just when things seem to be at their worst, and you think it can't get any worse, it does. As usual when I walk, I take you with me, I talk to you and try to give you incouragement to go on. I think at this point, that's just about all any of us can do for you. Sometimes as I look out the window across the lawn, I see the dead spots, I always hope that after winter is over and it has had a long rest, that it will "rebirth" itself and will be whole again and green all over, but it's not. The dead spots are still there, I think it is to remind me that yesterday was here. Although it is gone, it was there and this is what it left. And I will have to put stuff on it and try to get rid of these sport. I may be able to do it and I may not, But I will keep trying, and every year it's the same. And that is life to me, we keep trying, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but I am to stubborn to just give up, it is not going to beat me.And that is you my friend, I have heard you and I have listened, that is you Icey. you will beat this. Your tired and very weary, I can tell that, you've had enough, but your a fighter. Give it all you've got girl. You mentioned the tree, out in my back yard there is a tree that's about 35 to 40 ft. tall, it sways in the breeze, it's not a climbable tree, but I put myself in the top of it anyway, swaying in the breeze. I can see the world, everything in the forest and I have no fear up there. It is my thinking spot when I close my eyes and feel the sun on my face, no worries and no cares. The animals play just below the tree and once in awhile a squirrel runs up to greet me. And when I come down I am whole again, my spirit is renewed and I have so much will power and strength again. To me, it's like the enchanted pond, and I can see clear across the lake. Pick your spot Icey, I know you do, I know you renew yourself and start over each day. It's a life long thing for people like us, but it's O.K., because the ones that aren't like us, will never know what they missed. Take care and I will keep praying. Right beside you all the way...
Sunshine, It's hard enough to have to worry about one's self, but to have little children to worry about in this day and age, is so hard. To have to do it alone takes a strong person, and your strength is over whelming. God will help you, but I know you also know that, he already has.
Take care and stay strong, your day is coming.
LC, yesterday is our teacher for today, I know it's gone, but it did leave us with some lessons learned. The more yesterdays we go thru, the better our tomorrows will be.
To anyone I've missed, this is so long now, I'll probably get kicked off. I hope it post. Take care.
Blessings and hugs to all
