4:55 AM


  • Feeling: peaceful
  • Current Weather: Mainly clear. 15C. Forecast: Sunny this morning then a mix of sun and cloud. 30% chance of showers this afternoon with risk of a thunderstorm. High 25C.

4:23am - I've been up for exactly two hours, now. While the planes have not yet begun arriving or taking off, vehicle traffic is already moving along the boulevard, creating the wavy, white-noise effect that sounds like the ebb and flow of water on a beach. It's interesting how the brain is able to change the tonal qualities of certain unpleasant sounds and make them more soothing, more calming...

The house is quiet, wrapped in peaceful slumber. This will change soon enough, but for now, aside from the outside traffic, all is quiet. I enjoy this silence immensely; for a time, I am free of responsibility, free to hear myself think, free to just be - and it is wonderful. With my life as busy as it is, these days, I appreciate much more these opportunities for peaceful reflection.

A lot of things have been changing in my life, lately, including my online presence.  Where before, I was spending several hours a day poking around various social media sites, I now log in only when necessary, and then I'm off the computer for pretty much the rest of the day to actually live life, rather than read about it.

4:52am - It's time to go. The house is waking up and I have things that need to be done. To anyone who happens to stop by here, I wish you a wonderful day...

Chasing Dreams

  • Feeling: It's a fibro day. That is all.
  • Current Weather: Cloudy. 17C. Forecast: SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH IN EFFECT. Mainly cloudy. 60% chance of showers with risk of thunderstorm. Wind northwest at 30 km/h gusting to 50 km/h. High 21C

A big storm is coming in from BC. It's expected to arrive later this afternoon. You know I'm in the process of getting geared up for what I'm certain is going to be a spectacular chase...

Our window guys are coming over today to fix our bedroom window. Roger accidentally broke it the other night when he tried to close it on what he later realized was a rather thick branch from the apple tree. I think it's safe to say it's time to prune back the apple trees.

The weeks ahead are going to be busy. Puppy-training classes with my client twice a week and extensive yard work are just two of the tasks on the books. There's more going on, but I'm not at liberty to talk about it just yet.  It's all good stuff, though; indeed, I'm really quite excited about it. 

That's all I have to say for now. Have a great weekend!

Continuing the Journey

  • Feeling: excellent
  • Current Weather: Partly cloudy. 12C. Forecast: Mix of sun and cloud. 30% chance of showers this afternoon with risk of a thunderstorm. High 26C.

Hello. I've been giving it a lot of thought, and I've decided that since I pay for this service every year, I should be using it, otherwise, I'm just wasting good money.  However, I'm keeping my private space so that I have a safe place to go to when I'm frustrated or pissed off.

That said, while my life does have ups, downs, good days, and bad days, on the whole, it's actually pretty good. The universe has blessed me with an amazing husband, awesome friends, loving family, and ongoing opportunities to follow and live my passions. Glimmer and Violet are bonded to each other and love each other completely... With all of these blessings filling up my life, there's just no room for anything or anyone negative.

So, I resume the journey here with a full heart and a fulfilled spirit. The "fix" needed by drama seekers and negativity junkies - it won't be found here ever again.

Thanks for visiting. Have a fantastic day and an awesome weekend.
