The sun is quite indifferently rising without me these days--LOL! But I did get a blue sky, very cloudy picture yesterday.
My big stamp order arrived today! Lots of Christmas ball and winter stamps...and some others for international and fat domestic letters & bookcards, too.
I've been working on Christmas cards and so they were all ready by last night. Perfect timing--tada!
Oh, and do you remember the Circle Letter I joined? Well, it finally made it back to me for the second time! Such fun to read individual, handwritten letters from nine new ladies. Now I can work on my latest addition and send the big envelope on its way soon. :)
Dagan is out of town this week for work. Leah came over last night. We had dinner and hung out all evening. She had to work late on Monday, lost her shopping day, so she didn't have a chance to look for the hardware for the IKEA racks or the spring for my chair. Hopefully next week. It was so nice to be able to just sit around and chat and enjoy each other's company. Nice! Nice!
Karma thought I had lost both oars when I put her cat bed on "her" chair. I love to baffle her brain--LOL! The cat bed has never been anywhere but on the floor. She was actually afraid to go up there...silly girl. I had to pick her up and practically put her halfway in the bed--and you know how difficult it is to make a cat do anything they don't want to--good grief! But then she climbed in...looking a little askance but pleased.
Soon she was pawing the side of the bed (her pre-snooze activity)...and she tried to sleep.
Not out like a light, though, as you can see by the evil eye. Took her a couple of days to fully relax up there, but now she loves it! Probably even warmer still than the floor. ;)
I got thrown by another of the meditations a couple days ago...for a couple reasons.
One: You were supposed to imagine you were in your special favorite place or spot to be in the whole wide world. Where would that be? All that came to me was right here, right now, in my chair, in my apartment. I guess I don't have a favorite place in the wide world.
Do you have a favorite place?
Two: You were supposed to imagine you had this most treasured object that you love so dearly in your hands. What would that be? I was completely blank. My mind flitted over so many little treasures of mine, but none of them were special enough to be rated THE very one I loved so much I'd hate to part with, you know? It may seem like I am very attached to all my multitudinous "stuff" and they do bring me great joy, but when the fire alarm goes off...I grab Karma. ;)
Do you have a treasured object?
Anyways, I got so busy thinking about these things that it kind of took me completely out of the meditation--ROFL!! I must say, a few of these guided meditations have been inadvertently entertaining. ;)
We may dip below zero tonight. Too cold to snow. Spread the love.
Which partially jogged my memory. I don't remember the exact quote from a 60s poster and probably didn't look long enough on google:
Love is like manure. It needs to be spread around.
"Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
