My New Exercise Buddy

Thursday, March 15, 2012

A week and a half ago I adopted a dog - a 2 year old spayed female blue heeler mix - from the City Animal Shelter. Her name is Nalla. She was in some other animal shelter before the one where I got her, so she's been on her own for a while. She's very sweet and she loves my cats and vice versa (the cats grew up with my last dog, Annie). She definitely gets me out and about more than occurred when I didn't have a dog. I'm still working on getting a photo of her I can share with everyone here. She always wants to be right beside me and it is difficult to fit a 50 pound dog into a photo from such a close range! She is really a sweetheart and I am so glad I found her.

"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late."R.W. Emerson

"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I read the above and thought to myself how incredibly true it is. I post it here because I was reminded today that February 13-19 is RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS WEEK. I hope this will serve to remind a number of other people who will then do an extra act of kindness just because.

February Blahs!

Thursday, February 09, 2012

The hours of daylight are increasing, but the cold is still around and the February Blahs just won't go away. Not sad, not depressed, not unhappy - just blah! No excitement, limited energy, feel as if I'm waiting for something that is becoming, but isn't yet. Hope this fades into the past rapidly.

    I just saw this now - a few weeks after you wrote it. I do hope that the Feb blahs have passed for you. Are you still knee deep in snow? I know that Denver made it on the news - here in Canada - a few weeks ago.

Here's a spring flower for you: emoticon

    In our area our kids get a February break - this helps SO MUCH. It is a full week off school. It really helps break up that Blah in winter. It is a great time to take a little vacation.
Praying your "blahs" will pass quickly.
Hugs

  The winter blues I guess, I know I struggle with it. I am really looking forward to the longer days, and the warmth.

Reinventing me!

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

It's been a lot of up and down for me as far as total commitment and following through and all that sort of thing. I stay in the same weight area without a significant amount of change these days and I am not please about that, so I've decided to try a slightly different path. I'm going to pull together a very definite and very DO-able plan that I am willing to commit to for the next 5 weeks until Ash Wednesday and I am really going to DO IT!

I'm hoping once I see the result I can get it will inspire me further. Now I just have to see how well I can do getting through the next two or three days. Can I maintain my commitment? Can I hold true to my intentions and plans? Check back for the next installment! Only the Shadow knows!!!!!!!

Once more into the abyss

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Not really - but there are moments when it feels like that. So much to do, so little time and no mater how I try to reora=ganize to create less stress or conflict, it never really seems to get better. I think part of the problem is that as soon as I get one aspect of things under control or completed, I immediately fill the "space" with something else that was sort of lurking in the wings, waiting for an opening. There is so much I'd like to do in my life and not quite enough time to fit it all in, I'm afraid! I guess I ought to focus more on prioritizing and working toward the things I want most.

    One step at a time, I like to make a list. Most important things at the top, if it isn't on the list, don't worry about it.
Give it to God and let Him handle it.
Praying for peace for you

    Love this blog. Try not to get so bogged down in the abyss. Remember, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel.
