Floating Off

Some of you may wonder what I look like. I am the one strolling down the street wearing the /*No Comment */ T Shirt. Please stop me and say hello. I would be very happy to meet you. It has been a fun year but other things in life are calling to me and I simply haven't the time to keep up with blogging in to this site on any kind of daily basis. It is time for me to float on and off. I will keep reading and visiting my regulars. As always I am available by email. Be well out there in Blogdom. Be safe and don't do anything I wouldn't! Goodbye ~

Plan B

See my HNT here! When you were small did you have BIG plans for when you grew up? Did you think you'd be famous or discover something amazing only to find yourself as an adult having a normal somewhat uninspired life? Life doesn't always go according to plan A. You have to be flexible. I didn't expect weekly roadtrips of 400 miles to become part of my routine at this juncture in my life but they now are. Sometimes when we think we know where we are going we suddenly need to gain more flexibility since we find our paths are not direct. Life is a seesaw. I find I have less time for myself when I should realistically have more but as adults we can expect to have new responsibilities thrown our way which we must lovingly embrace. Why are we here if not to be in service to others? This is the ultimate plan ~ to be of service to others. When you're called upon, accept the challenge with grace. It will change your route, possibly make it longer and more difficult, but it will broaden your outlook on life.

Into Hybrids

I passed a black Rolls Royce with the personalized license plate 1FRUIT on the road this week. Which reminded me of my last stop at Wegmans. A sample taste of this fruit, the MANGO NECTARINE led to my 1st purchase of this item which is now a new summer favorite in our home. It tastes like Mango but it really is a result of the crossbreeding of two strains of pale nectarine which bring out the delicate color and a mango tasting flesh. They grow exclusively in California. You have to taste one. If you can't find them at your grocery store fly to California cause they must be tasted to be believed. What summer fruit do you think is amazing? Have a fun, safe weekend. And keep Cool!

It's Bloody Sunday

I knew he could dance since he tries to hip his way into the front line in belly dancing classes on Tuesday nights (it's the only frontline he's not fearfull of) but I didn't know he could sing. Here it is: George Bush singing Sunday Bloody Sunday!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekends!

Tell Me NOT

Does anyone know the Secret? Would I really want to know? I know I am never going to write that interesting book. I told Dr. Joel, my shrink that this week. I told him he's way too classic a shrink. He isn't as interesting as Augusten Burroughs (author of Running with Scissors - soon to be a Major MOTION PICTURE - on my birthday of all days) shrink. Nope, boring. Though I am not sure I could handle a doc who judges the day by how one's stool is looking. I will just have to have to come to terms that after a year of blogging and trying to balance it is time for me to work on my thesis and that is that. The secret? For me it is accepting that I will never know and being perfectly ok with not having the answers.
Have a fun and safe weekend!

For all those heroes who manage to posts HNT weekly!

Fishing for Compliments

There are 86 acres of land that my Township has marked to be left undeveloped across from where I live. Often this past winter I would see trucks pulling in there and it seemed as though men were taking out fishing rods even though there is no water on this land. I would drive by and wonder exactly what is going on. So recently I drove in and saw for myself. It seems that groups of men get together on this barren farmland and see how far out they can throw their fishing lines and then they measure the distance. Sometimes they even have contests and trucks come from all around. They are even out there this time of year, not just the winter... when they can actually go out to the ocean or a real lake across the road and actually fish. (Someone want to explain this to me?) I know in Brokeback Mountain the man had no explaination for not catching fish. Neither do these men. There is no water. I guess this is a guy thing? How long is my line....
Anyhow Bellydancing begins again this week. I guess there is no accounting for what one thinks of as
Like the kids say "whatever" just keep having it!

Holiday Weak ends

Hey Now, get this, I have had some work done on my house, new closets with built-ins so I did a bit of house cleaning and threw away some stuff and when I took out the trash last night I noticed that my garbage had been stolen. Yep, the night before I had asked my son, Tree, to clean out a closet that was filled with old basketballs. I took armloads of basketballs to the curb the prior night and last night when I took out the kitchen trash they were gone. EVERYTHING was....

OOOOOH, AHHH, a nice long weekend for me. What to do? besides getting new treads for the Hybrid? Definately a shore forecast which means time to get out on the new boat, so time on the salt water and then time to slow down on the cedar lake in the kayak without a motor... and maybe some..... Skinny dipping?. Whatever you do ~ have fun and Be Safe!
