These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Good day ahead
I'm trying to get myself revved up for the day. I have errands to run, and many tasks to do in preparation for the trip. But I can't start a day without a cuppa and some 'puter time. I think my condition is terminal.
It's going to be another beautiful, sunny 59° day here again. I could get used to this! It's already beautiful out there and quickly approaching 50°. I'm looking forward to driving around with the windows down. Ahhhhh. I suspect we will have some more cold weather, perhaps even more snow, but I think the winter is on its death march. Thank goodness. I love winter, I love snow, but I'm done for this year, thank you very much!
I have a bit of melancholy today, and I'm not sure why. It's minor, but just touching on my shoulder. It could be that I spoke yesterday with my sister, and we reminisced for a long while about her husband, my brother-in-law, who just passed away. It was a good talk, actually, remembering the good things in his life and some fond memories about our parents and grandmother, too. Even so, reminiscing might have stirred up the bittersweet.
After talking with her, I got a call from another friend who is going through a hard time with health concerns, financial challenges and having to move to a smaller home. He is philosophical about it all, but it is not easy for him. The challenges of any two of those makes the third more difficult, so he is more or less fighting uphill. It's very tough for him now, and my heart goes out to him. There isn't much else I can do, as he is far away, but I'm happy to be there with him in spirit and to lend an ear. Thank goodness, he is an unusually upbeat person, and he doesn't wallow. Still, my heart hurts for his struggle.
Fortunately for me, the sun is out. I know that once I get out and soak it in, I will feel lighter. It has warmed up another 5° while I wrote this. Life has hard knocks, but it can keep me down only if I allow it. And I won't!
So .... I gotta get movin'! "I got to move it, move it!!" Later, y'all!!
PS - I just saw this beautiful picture on my deck, and had to come back and share it ......
Yep, a good day.
