A Perfect Storm

Monday, October 02, 2017

We are mostly settled into the new homestead. It’s literally a dream come true; out of town, close to town, naturally landscaped, forested surroundings. Beautiful. Every day on the drive home from work I literally thank the universe for our blessings.

More importantly, our beautiful grandbaby, Juniper has arrived. She is healthy, precious, a blessing of unparalleled proportions. Tears of joy just leak out of me, even just thinking about her.

The crazy summer of blazing forest fires and unending heat have wound down and it is time to settle into a routine. One of the items on our checklist when we were house hunting was there needed to be dedicated space for a gym. We have about a 400 sq ft area above the garage that we put together for just that purpose. Now it’s time to start the routine.

Over the last few years, between career change(s) and life, I somehow got off track.

“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat." --F. Scott Fitzgerald, American writer

Last weekend I started to move more again. Just Friday I logged into Sparkpeople for the first time in several months. This morning I wake to learn I am a featured motivator.

It is the perfect storm of need, desire and ability.

    I love your new house (if it's the background). So lovely! We are looking for a retirement place, and am thinking of your area (amongst many).

    Congratulations on the grand baby! Babes are the best to put things in perspective.

    The fires are so awful ...

    Are you still moving? Keep it up!
