Pondering … Thursday

Today’s word is LEAVE
For my favorite time of year when the leaves turn and fall.
Members of the family that leave a pile of laundry on the floor in hopes that the “laundry fairy” will take care of it.
Leaving the sprinkler running while I blog to give the garden and grass some water.
Learning to leave things be as there are those moments when it simply isn’t worth your time.
40 minus 10 leaves 30 – which was so very long ago.
Happy Thursday!

Monday’s Music Moves Me!

Welcome aboard our 201st wk. of “Monday’s Music Moves Me” Celebration Special!  notes

My good friend over at Time out for Mom
is the spotlite dance this week. Make sure you stop by and catch up with insightful humor.
This weeks theme is a freebie and I thought this song was the most fitting for what Mondays
normally hold for me.
And then because I have a teenage daughter,  this is another song that seems fitting – many aspects to this song apply to my son too. 
Sigh… Teenagers
Happy Monday!

Happy Canada Day!!!

Happy Canada Day to all my northern friends.
I have to say that I went to bed last night feeling very accomplished.
I have walked every day for a month – EVEN – when I really just wanted to snooze one more time.
(Mornings really do come way to early.) 

I placed a goal to read more and started with reading a book a month because I know myself and where I used read one a week, not so much anymore.
(I get distracted with life)
Last night I finished my first book on this goal – even though it was almost 11pm before I actually went to sleep – but the book is READ.
 (I will pay for that late hour later) 
Lastly, I am finding I am disconnecting more and more.  Where I felt I needed to be in the know with certain folks and events taking place,  I realized it is okay to just take care of myself and be in the moment and NOT feel guilty about it.
Learning to say NO used to be hard for me. Not so much anymore.
(very refreshing)
Happy Tuesday!
