Stubby

Been doing a lot and I mean a lot of upkeep on my old house. Last week I received a lily plant from one of my friends and had decided to plant that in the front yard. It went from that to painting the front facade of the house in 3 different colors. The week consisted of me running to and fro to the hardware store and also fitting in a photo shoot. It was pretty frenetic!

This morning after my workout I was on my way out the gym when I stumbled going up the stairs and almost did a full face plant and in all that I stubbed my big toe. OUCH!! All my big plans to finish painting the big frame on the window went on the wayside.

So this is my theory and here it goes. Universe as wise and infinite as she is decided it was time to slow down for this one and girl I hear and receive!! Been sitting back since this morning with foot propped up watching old movies and even grabbed a ice cream cone with the other half, Ken this afternoon. Oh and the toe, feeling so much better!!

Home Sweet Home

And I looked at all the beauty that surrounded me and said, “I am home!”

And so my Monday starts with this feeling of rejuvenation coursing through my body, my mind clear and unaffected, my mood peachy keen. I was standing on the cruise ship NCL in Miami, FL when I made that statement early in the morning. The sky baby blue with fluffy clouds tossed to and fro. Water greenish blue sparkling all around us and the air salty on my tongue and so very humid. Drinking all this in as I knew it would end so very soon.

The people I met and there were many on this cruise were delightful, friendly and so much fun! And so many people from all over the USA, so many accents, so much food and oh let us not forget the images I took with my trusty camera, so many pictures! Shopping was our main objective with treasure’s to be had and brought back. Alas and alack our luggage did not follow us all the way home. Hopefully we will be picking them up sometime this afternoon though.

Been Around the World

Magen's Bay, St. Thoma'sMy life has been picking up speed and with my photography amping up with new business and now with my classes happening for intuition tuning, I couldn’t be happier. The other half, Ken and I are planning a long awaited trip to the east coast with a cruise which by the way I have never been on. My quandry is this. How many cards do I bring for my camera never mind about what to pack for clothes which is almost done. A few more weeks and we get on the long flight for adventures and see some beautiful spaces in the Bahamas and other islands.

The plan last year when I brought it up to Ken was to be in the now and drink in that moment so we can remember it for a very long time. I had brought it up to him about not discussing yesterday or the future, that we were on vacation in Honolulu. At the end he brought it up that he thought it had been a great idea but was looking forward to being home. I told him that one only had to look at people that lived there and they wore these worried or what I would call the thinking look. Thinking about the bills, shopping for food, thinking of there job or family or any life situation. And yet they lived in paradise. And really it was being in that state of now they were missing.

So looking forward to this adventure we call life be it here in Canada where the weathers changes on a dime or sunny, humid Florida. Life is pretty funny sometimes and I have to say that grace has touched me in various ways through my photography business, the friends I have met and know, the projects that have opened there doors to include me. If you just let it be and let it flow, well it does just that..it flows. Yes I am truly grateful for what I have inside me and understand it oh so much more as I progress. Looking forward to seeing, knowing more of this vast universe we call life.
