Mumblings and Ramblings

I have a small pocket-card, developed by GiveMore, that I am making a conscious decision to read at least once a day. The idea I am going to develop into a habit is:   Pause before you begin.   Clip a complaint as you feel it coming. Put a smile or thoughtful statement in its path. Blame no one. Blame nothing.    Can you imagine if everyone made a concious decision to do this?

The other day I got my hair wrapped around a brush so badly I thought I might have to cut it out.  Then, all of a sudden the brush slid loose.  If I hadn’t practiced a bit of patience and perseverance…  In other words, when having a moment of frustration or panic – take a deep breath before reacting.

I asked myself the other day if it was too early (before 5:00) to have a glass of wine.  I decided to make a cup of coffee in my Keurig.  It was a good choice.  I got a lot done.

Jigsaw puzzles relax me.  Putting organization into chaos?  I am working on my second one this month.  I slip into the little world coming together on the table.  My current puzzle is a picture of a Mom & Pop veggie farm/orchard.  Love it!!

Had another dream about running out of time to Christmas shop.  It is January for crying out loud.  Give me a break!

Had another dream about moving.  In this dream, at least, the house I was moving into wasn’t already jam packed with the previous owners’ stuff…but the house was dirty.  Very.  Why do I keep having dreams about moving into houses??

It thundered in winter.  That’s supposed to mean snow in 7 days.  We’ll see what happens…
