Arbolada, “The Hood”

Friday, May 18th, 2012

I did a three mile walk yesterday (a record for me!) through the hood, (“Arbolada”) and enjoyed it immensely although my feet and legs were complaining, LOUD :b

One of the things I saw on the walk as we passed the Cemetery was this nest sitting on the ledge of the wall bordering the gravestones

I am curious to know what is in that pouch! I left it untouched as I sensed it would be bad karma to mess with it!

Also en route we passed a house with this in front!

and this

Oh well

Feeling bad cuz I havn’t been blogging but I also havn’t been creating either, just too much to do this time of year.

I will finish my Christmas cards today and get out a few more packages, and finish Christmas cookies. One more gift to purchase and then done, over and done, with the Christmas shopping, not a single thing, no matter how much on sale, could get me back into a mall for the next four weeks!

I tell ya, its taking a very concerted effort to not be grouchy when out buying, people bump into me like I’m not there! and Leaving the parking lot of a  very busy grocery store yesterday three people almost hit me!! One person whipped out backwards from their parking space very fast without looking, another person rounded the corner at about forty miles per hour oblivious to me and yakking on the phone as if there were not another soul in the whole parking area, and as I rounded the corner on the block where I live, a person in the cross section didn’t stop to look for oncoming traffic and was going to go straight through for heavens sake, a car accident could ruin anyone’s holiday. Everyone is rushing and on their cell phones while doing it, that lethal combination means its time to slow down, its dangerous out there!!

The Christmas Spirit I saw in the Grocery store yesterday

Except she is missing her cell phone.

Today a RAK PAK goes out in the mail as my way of paying forward the unexpected surprise I recieved from SAMMO, (see last post). I feel  very excited about it!

So, dear readers, TAKE IT EASY!! slow down, be mindful, if not for your sake, for mine,  I mean, others ;D

Peace out———–!

peace has been on my mind a lot this year.

My puggie had another seizure and spent  another day at the vet, its still a guessing game, at this point we are just trying to control the seizures. Its heartbreaking.


Imagine Peace

I mentioned a few posts back that I had gone for the labor day holiday to spend time with friends. The visit helped me get through a difficult time and underscored the importance of friendships. Love my grlies.

This beautiful home is nestled in the hills of a very rural area and is a lovely retreat.

I’m off to work today

peace and creativity

It was a sweltering 107 yesterday in my neighborhood, today will go down to two digits.

I spent Fri and Sat with friends in the bay area (where I lived for many years), reconnecting, relaxing and vowing to not let so much time pass without being together. Coincidentally we are reading the same book, The Power of Now by Eckhardt Tolle,  I have an intense desire to believe in something more than what my eyes can see. While I was raised Catholic, I have long since lost faith in its teachings.

 I also met with a friend of my brother’s who had not been able to attend the funeral, two and a half hours passed in minutes, she and her husband cared so much, this meeting brought me great joy.

On the way home, early evening, I put the top down on my convertible car, allowing the warm wind to hit my face as I sped through long stretches of interstate 5, and I wept openly for what was and what wasn’t, while the hills surrounding listened and the vast stretch of sky consoled me.

Today, I have the strong urge to get things back on track and get life closer to "normal".

Ideas are beckoning beckoning beckoning me and I have to get back to work.

I appreciate my many blessings, my home, my hub, my family and friends, my pugs, the air to breathe, art that will be made, and my heart that thinks.

Peace and creativity …
