How wonderful it is to be on vacation.  Oh how I love the freedom.  Even so, there still isn't enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do.  Choices have to be made and some things get set aside for another day.  Too many interests perhaps.  Need to concentrate on a select few and actually accomplish the present goal and then move on.  That is the plan.  

I have been moving forward (instead of backward) and happy to say that.  Oh yeah, the past is still there and of course always will be, however, I am learning, slowing but surely, how to let go.  Ways it can be easier for me.  I am also learning not to be so hard on myself.  I AM doing okay and going with the flow a little more.  Remember to remind myself of all the everyday joys surrounding me ... 

My son and his girlfriend arrived back from their Nova Scotia/Cape Breton Island vacation this past Monday.  They had the best time and are sad to be back to the reality of life.  Although I saw daily pictures ... isn't technology great these days ... and was able to see visuals of their adventures, I am excited for a personal visit to hear them talk about everything.  The whales and the dolphins, the flowers on their hikes, everything.

Been taking a break from the cards but have been missing them so spent some time with a deck a little earlier and had some fun.  Felt good in my hands, did a spread and the cards I got were great, very encouraging ... although I am not going to share today.

Yesterday it rained.  Hasn't rained all summer.  I had an appointment at 1:00pm.  Had to go.   The walk would be about 25 minutes to get there.  About 12:15pm it started to pour and I mean pour.  We haven't seen rain like that, well, all summer.  So I put on my rain gear and headed out.  The longest walk ever and as a walker, I have some choice words for you drivers. Especially the ones who like to drive too close to the curb where the water accumulates.  Especially when it is raining that hard and the water doesn't drain quickly.  Can't count how many times that water ended up all over me.  Even though I was in my rain gear, my face wasn't. Once I finally got home, it cleared up and the sun came out.   I had to laugh.  

 I am going to end with a gorgeous picture my son took.  Perfect to stare at and just get lost.  That is the Atlantic Ocean.

moving forward ....


  1. Ahhhh... vacation time. Hapsper we can expect all kinds of blog entries from you? Hm? Hm?

  2. Beautiful photo!

    I so feel you with the water/cars - our road is narrow and old, and the water builds up, but cars just race along it anyway...

    As you say, it's good to be able to laugh at the rain and the sun and the craziness of life :)
