(Did anyone catch yesterday's typo? Note to self... proofread before snapping picture, LOL!)












I'm really starting to love Saturdays. This is my second in a row where I am not overwhelmed and anxious about meeting a 'deadline'... getting prepared for something that I don't have time enough for which to prepare (now I'm also streaking guilt-free weekends... streaks really do build one upon the other).

I'm also able to leave the house today and go have some FUN without feeling guilt.

I feel truly FREE.

Yesterday not withstanding, this has been a really great week.

As usual, I was up at 6 AM with a smile (did you catch me just there acting as if my dream is a reality?). Seems Ms. Past (the b!tch in my head) has gone to her room to sulk. Fine by me.

Before 7 AM I was dressed, the dishwasher was emptied, I had breakfast prepped, I played with the cat, and did my healing protocols.

Before my family rolled out of bed at 8:00 AM, I collected all my SparkPoints.

Once everyone was greeted, cuddled and inspired, I went down and did my INTENTIONAL exercise. While I did that, the Divine Miss O made her bed, did her morning hygiene routine and got dressed, and decluttered her bedside drawers (LOVE that trickle down effect, LOL)... she's so proud of how nicely organized it is now.

My Mr. and Miss O went out and loaded the truck (yard refuse) while I tidied the house and got supper ready. While they took the load to the city composting depot, I made breakfast.

They are now delivering the garbage load to the dump, and our goal is to all be ready to leave for the Farmer's Market by 2:00!

After the Market we will go to Mass, and then we will have the evening open to whatever surprises come our way... movie, geocache, board games, bike ride... we'll decide later. We may just get packed for the Lake tomorrow and get to bed early.

It's now noon, and I'm hopping in the tub for some much-needed 'pampering' (I cannot remember the last time I was able to do this... on a Saturday afternoon, no less). LOL!







Have a BLESSED and WONDER-filled weekend, my SPARKling friends!

May today and every day bring to you a ridiculous abundance of whatever you need. May you find peace within and all around you. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith and desire... a desire which even itself issues from God. May all your concerns, struggles, anxieties and fears fall like ashes as you rise on eagle's wings, SOARING above all that would hinder you along this tremendous adventure of being and becoming all you are created to be. May you answer your call and use those gifts that you have received to pass on the love that has been given to you. May the presence of God settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love beyond your wildest imagination. May you be overwhelmed by the grace of God as it simply "overtakes" you moment by moment... rather than being overwhelmed by the cares of life!

Oh yes they call her the STREAK...

(oh! and when I get to goal, I will have MUSCLES rippling as I STREAK by... my butt cheek will NOT be languishing on my thigh as above!)
