A New Journey Begins!

 

A new journey begins

A vision, a dream… the time is finally here. The gathering of minutes, hours, days, years and now it is here. Maybe to travel across the country, to see family and friends, to enjoy the riches of the earth, to sit back and gaze at the stars. Maybe fish in a brook, paint or write… the options are numerous! I wait in anxious excitement to step into the discovery of this new journey.

There is much to do / to prepare!! There are decisions to be made. There are motor-homes to look at!!!

Lions and tigers.. Oh my!! Oh but what fun it will be!!!

What was I thinking??

Does anyone else have those moments where self doubt just takes over and you wonder is it you or is the other person just not getting it? Where you go over it  and over it again and again in your mind using up all your energy and wasting the day because you just can’t get it out of your head or understand why they just don’t get it?? Maybe it was me? Maybe it was my fault? Maybe, maybe….  You tell yourself: oh well, just let it go… it’s done it’s over… move on…   And then,   here you are again trying to get out of your head!!!

Tomorrow will bring a new day and time will help to let it go!

Deep in thought!

January 1, 2016!!! I was so caught up… so busy at work… so tired when I got home…  and on and on went the reasons and the time!!!

Today, for some unknown reason, I began to flip through the blogs of those I follow but have not visited for quite sometime.  I started flipping through the post’s of past, discovering how much has happened and changed! I cried, I smiled and I gazed into space pondering the stories and life changing events that have happened to those I have come to know through their blogs and post of sharing……

I realize it is a new year, a time that lends itself to think about the past and the future… it awakens something deep inside and calls out…..

I must, somehow, get back….  it is after all a new year!!!

 

Tonight my dog won🙀

Funny, funny😄😄 I was laughing so hard… My MaggieMae has been on some medicine and it was the last pill. The only way to get her to take the pill is to hid it in some yogurt. She absolutely loves yogurt so onto the spoon it went buried in the luscious treat…. Well yogurt was everywhere, over her mouth and nose, the floor, my fingers and half gone But the pill still remained!!! I could not believe it!! She got her treat put there on the floor sat her pill. She was so proud of her win. I would have taken a picture but my hands were covered with yogurt 😊 Boy am I glad that was the last pill😳. 

An appropriate start ?

Today I think I will begin with a small post on Mom”s blog, So if you don’t mind clicking here: PurpleEleganceandLace and continuing reading there that would be wonderful… Thank you. 🙂

The Mountains!

Tomorrow is Thursday and we are expecting another snow storm. The skiers are rejoicing because the mountain’s opening day is this Saturday. Seems like this year has just passed so quickly! We have not been through a winter in the new house yet and now we have a garage!! Wohoo!!  It is absolutely fabulous not having to scrape frost or snow off the windows and the car starts so much easier… I am happy 🙂 At work, we are gearing up for the skiers. The hotel is usually completely booked and I am very busy. Skies, poles, lots of people and beer… let the good times roll!! It is party time!!!  The mountains of Montana are beautiful. There is such an unexplainable feeling about stepping out, looking up and gazing out over the land… where the mountains meet the sky. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!! Whitefish has become quite the hot spot.Its downtown area is really cute with specialty shops and restaurants.There are parks and walking trails and plenty to do. There is a ski bus that picks up and drops off skiers downtown. It really is a great place to come and visit while enjoying all the area has to offer. Glacier National Park is only about 20 to 30 min away with all its trails and beauty of its own. I can see why people are attracted to this area. Gosh, the airport is only 15 min away, the train comes right into town and of course always your own car. My grandson is on the ski racing team so watching his races this year will be a big thing for me. It certainly is wonderful being next to family 🙂 Well, getting late and have to get up early so must say good night.

Have a great day tomorrow and remember to “live your life in the moment with passion, love and kindness”

NaBloPoMo Day 30 last day!

As I post for the last time for NaBloPoMo I thank all the fellow bloggers for reading, commenting and liking my posts :-). I also thank you for all the great variety of posts that I have read, commented on and liked. It really has been fun, entertaining and informative. I look forward to the continued blogging and reading of this wonderful community of new found adventures and friends!!

My next goals include my “Purple Elegance and Lace” blog for my Mom (purple elegance was already taken by someone so I added “and Lace”), My Sweet Bullie blog for Maggie Mae and my whatever posts for my Our life in the moment blog… I may also do a bit of the e-writing 101 for tips here and there :-). A bit of fun for me…

Now I am on my way to PurpleEleganceandLace to work on getting it up and published today! I will reblog here, to this blog, when it is published.

NaBloPoMo Day 29 Mother Teresa

Being that November and Thanksgiving are just about over I’m feeling a little reflective. Christmas is coming and the feeling of thankfulness and gratitude is slipping its way right in! I am so thankful for where I am. I turn and look down the road of past, I look where I stand today and then invasion the road ahead… I am truly blessed and live with much gratitude thanking God everyday!!! Things could have turned out so differently!! I welcome this opportunity to help others, to understand and not judge as I have been there, to smile and to love :-). My blogger friends, may your last day of November tomorrow and your fist day of December on Monday lead you into a beautiful and wonderful December filled with love. :-).

Leaving you with this reflective thought from Mother Teresa:

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”

NaBloPoMo Day 28 Shopping :-(

Run me over

Mow me down

Look man here I come!!

In the store, wanting more..

mine, mine, mine I say!!

Do not touch, do not grab

least I stab you in the ab

Life means nothing

I’m going hunting

sales are it!!!

Live you say

then stay away

come what may

you will pay!!!

I, in particular, do not care to get involved with black Friday. I have never jumped in as that kind of shopping takes the joy out of it for me. I would rather take my time and enjoy the sound of Christmas bells, the decorations…. I know discounts are great and I really don’t have the funds to being paying top dollar but I just don’t enjoy the crowds, the pushing, the grabbing and rudeness. Oh well, maybe someday???

NaBloPoMo Day 27 Happy Thanksgiving!!

I would like to wish all my blogging friends and the blogging community a very happy Thanksgiving!!! Hope it was a good one for all!

I just got back from a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration at my daughters. Family and friends, plenty of great food and lots of fun!! I feel very blessed and very thankful :-). She lives way up on the mountain and the roads this year were slushy and a bit slippery but everyone made it. We are looking at a big storm and arctic air coming in for late tomorrow so again I feel very blessed to have had a great weather day for everyone to get around.
