Lurkers! De-Lurk!

Come out! Come out, Lurkers! Is anyone out there? I am feeling very lonely, so if you happen to read this and don't usually comment, leave an X in the comment box, for pete's sake! PLEASE! I BEG OF YOU! SHOW YOURSELF! I'm about halfway ready to throw in the towel in this blogging stuff. Let me know if that is a good idea.

(I'm totally bluffing. I'm not going anywhere. I'm addicted.)

I discovered a colossal garden fountain. Someone was throwing it away and I rescued it from the side of the road while walking home from girl scouts. It looks like stone, but its really some kind of plastic, and it has a lion's head that water spurts out of. Pretty cool. It is right now residing in the back of my truck. It's huge. You could baptize a baby in it. I NEEDED one of those.

My daughter's school choir sang that Fireflies song that's on the radio at their concert last night. It was nice. They had bells. Today's children don't even KNOW the retarded songs we had to sing in elementary school choir. They were painfully dumb. If someone told us we could sing a song that was on the radio, we would have passed out.

My husband and I had planned to move this spring, but recently decided not to. I was intimidated by the concept of moving us all right now. I'm glad to postpone for the time being. Maybe I'll feel like it at the end of summer.

I asked my daughter if she would please shoot me when I became so old that I forgot what I was doing in the middle of providing my phone number, and she said,"I will NOT shoot you! I will love you and I will write your phone number on your hand!" Awww! She will not shoot me!

I had dinner at Cali Burrito. It's my ~*`*'~*Favorite*~*`*'~. I had two tacos that have crunchy shells wrapped in soft shells, with black beans inside, pico de gallo, cheese, tomatoes and lettuce, with homemade salsa on the side. In the past week, I have had TWO meals with meat. I'm going in a good direction, folks.

I'm going to a women's circle next week at the place where we went to the Equinox Fire Circle. I'm embarrassed with over-eagerness.

Today was a day that seemed like a total loss. The thing is, I was really, truly convinced that I would have it together as an adult, and it turns out I am one thousand times more awkward and self-conscious now than I was at 13. How IS that? My mother always gave the impression of being in total and complete control, perfect credit and shiny kitchen floors. Where are my shiny kitchen floors? Did I drop my poise and sophistication at the laundromat?

Even though I feel like I am in a constant state of disarray, I've got sweetness all over the place if I take the time to notice it. Maybe MORE than my mother did. I'm a beautiful mess.

What was sweet in your day?

***PS-I'm having trouble with blogger and/or this template. I'm sorry for the fonts being messed up, and the links not being in order, etc. I'm working on it.

Love and light,
your friend,


  1. I so love this post. Sweetness begets light.

    P.S. Your Mama prolly' had the rule book on how to cover up ones confusion and disarray with sleight of hand. I think it's called "act as if", these days.

    We live in a no rules until the last minute world. Do not, I repeat, do not succumb to self bashing.

  2. Madame One is correct. Mama had a rule book, it came from the 40's and 50's and it was a way to survive in this crazy world. Still works if you want to walk that path. Me, as a little kid walking home from school, took me three times as long to get there as the other kids. I couldn't follow the path. I had to meander, go around every tree and bush, so much to see and experience, didn't want to miss a thing. Sound familiar?

  3. Good morning, Sweet Pea! Thanks for the shout out. I've been a very bad blogger,lately....reading and writing and commenting so I figured I best get over here and let one of my sweetest buddies know that I still <3 her!!
