There will always be new beauty showing up in the wood pile. You have not been doing it long enough. Look forward to the time you find a blue tinged one that glows in the dark.



Seriously new beauty.. Hmm cool got a pic of that by chase?

[Morning Entry]

.. Good Morning.. its a new boot day.. Chi is here.. he likes RMH's (like me!).. we're gonna get to work and do the things that we do..
.. i thought i had my rhythm.. haha.. i will say that usually, there's a bit of a "learning curve" or a ramp-up curve once the rhythm is lost and then regained.. all this to say that i am behind on finishing yesterday's entry and this entry is a bit short because my morning went super fast..

enjoy the pics~!

The thanks go both ways.  I got a pair for myself based on your recommendation and love them.  Hang in there....spring will be here before you know it.

.. WELLNESS ASSESSMENT: today was a bit tough.. it was hard to move my body.. not sure why.. maybe i slept too much?.. maybe my mind is playing tricks on me?.. maybe its the sugar in my diet these days.. i don't want to change.. (who wants to change??).. yet i know this seeming "inability" to move kind of symptom is likely an indicator that i might be sleeping too much, that my focus is in need of exercise, and that the sugar has had its time.. i ate a lot of fruit today--and this is something rare!.. but ever since christmas, i've been feeling okay with sugar (no post sugar consumption migraines).. so i guess, in a way, i've been enjoying it while it lasts.. and perhaps that road is turning.. =D

Enjoy the pics~!

So you're collecting empty jars and boxes too? Is it because of the idea "maybe I can use these for .... in the future"? For me it is, and some of my friends have the same

yup.. that's totally it.. and the cooler/nicer the jar or box, the greater the temptation to "save" it~! lol.. once in a while, i have to purge my stash and it feels very bittersweet..

.. today was "House Plants Day".. half-holiday.. it was super fun connecting with these beautiful beings that give us so much oxygen and aesthetic appeal around the house.. we re-potted some, made new pots for others, and pruned their malfoliage.. (not sure if that's a real word.. disturbed leaves, per say)..

enjoy the pics~!

.. played settlers of cattan today.. I was highly resistant to involve myself in such a diversion.. now having played, I can see why people like this game.. would I play again? .. not sure.. it’s hard for me to dedicate an uncertain amount of time to any one diversion when it seems there’s so much “work” to be done.. I would have to know ahead of time and have half my chores complete.. then I may opt to make Friday night so enjoyably diverting.. does that mean I am deprived of simple fun in my life? Not sure.. maybe.. or maybe that’s how I get when I’m on a two year long mission.. *shrugs* :)

Enjoy the pics!
