"Dark Side of the Moon"
is the phrase that has been with me all day.
I awakened in the middle of a dream last night
where someone was randomly slashing throats
of women with my first name. I was in a panic
and even though awake, convinced it was real
and found myself throwing things into a bag
to escape .... to where at 2am on a Sunday night?
*shaking my head* It was intense and the only
way I could go back to sleep was by remembering
that my first name isn't listed in the phone book.
lol Not many use one of those any more!
Whatever I ate for dinner? is no longer on my list!!!

I just finished walking Sadie
when I realized it was the right
combination of dusk and my
new solar yard lights coming on.
I dashed out and snapped this
without realizing the solar lights
aren't in the frame!
So here's something more post-creative
than it is photo-creative!
Is it Friday yet?????

When I was young
I used to wish
I would fit in.
get my wish!
It's OK to live a life
others don't understand.
I know we all have those moments
where we might wish for
But I'm finally in a place where
it just doesn't matter
that I'm not a normal woman!
I never have been,
but I used to apologize for it.

Be brave enough to be your true self!
Just a quick selfie on a dreary day -
no sun, a little rain
and wind bringing in cold temps!
I was surprised when I opened this shot --
and know that I couldn't duplicate it if I tried!
Work life has been pleasantly slowing down -
not yet a crawl, but at the end of this past week,
I'm finally seeing daylight!
My son came over to help replace a shutoff valve
so the dishwasher could be installed -- and I'm such
a lucky mom, he installed it and I didn't have to wait!
I cooked him dinner, we had a nice visit, and I sent
him on his way, tucking a little extra cash in his pocket!

14 January 2018
should be allowed
that it may return
to its work
all the better for the rest.
From mid-November til mid-January,
work is very intense in my position
at my BigBoxStore. It has always been
this way, and I've become accustomed to
setting my mind to the intensity, and
tend to live and breathe work,
coming home to grab a bite, fall into bed,
only to do the same the next day.
My one day off tends to be utilized in the
normal ways: chores!
This was finally my weekend to relax.
To let my mind be away from it all.
My only chore today was to give Sadie
a bath, and then warm ourselves in the sun.
It's been a perfectly lovely weekend, and
tomorrow I return to the grind. I know that
I will walk into a mess -- I always do.
But I won't let my mind think about it
for another 12 hours.
My only job today is to relax.
In the last rays of the day
streaming in my window.

Chilly or not, I can't resist the sunshine!
It's Saturday morning,
frost on the neighbor's rooftop.
Ok... desert frost.
The morning dew shone white
in the early light!
Up early, as I always am,
it's a day of waiting for repairmen.
(Forgetting the cliche of older single women...)
It's the day for my semi-annual inspection of
my heat and air conditioning unit. All's good
and ready for the summer temps!
Now I'm waiting for a dishwasher to be
delivered and installed.

How many of us make New Year's Resolutions?
and how many of us keep them
longer than a week?
longer than a month?
Yeah, me either.
I finally stopped making them.
I am still the same me, no matter
how many times I told myself I would
do this or that to make a "better me".
So I'll just keep being the same me....
because I'm already freakin' fabulous!
lol -- I'm OK just the way I am!

I hope 2018
is a good year
I started my "celebration" at 6pm
with a couple of sparklers,
then heading for bed!
I worked today, and I work Monday,
there's not much Holiday in retail!
(Not my best, but I'm tiiiired!)
Wishing you all the best, my friend!
