Sunday Hike

Yes, I'm still sick. This is the sick that won't go away. I had this a few years ago and it lasted 3 months. 3 Months of coughing until I choked. It's been more than a month now. I hope I am nearing the end. We hiked a very short bit on Sunday. I was hoping that pulling some fresh air into my lungs might help. I am teaching my Happy Class today and I really hope my voice holds up.

I keep thinking when I feel better I'll post more. Hang in there with me and maybe I'll soon make it so.

I rose before 4 AM this morning because I'm reading this book. I had a practice of getting up to journal and exercise every morning but I stopped a while back. I'm hoping this might get me back into the game. Getting up early does make my day go better. How about you? When do you get up?

Good Day. May it be magical.

Belated Arrow Day

After weeks of being sick we finally felt well enough to do our annual arrow ceremony. Kenlee joined us for the first time ever and made it an even better day.

this was a strange day

I left home this morning listening to my iRife app and then I had a strong urge to listen to music instead. This song played and it made me cry. I was just about to turn into a blubbering fool, complete with makeup spilling down my face, when the song just stopped playing at the chorus and went to the next song. This was the song that played next and it was the Gary Burr version from his Stop Me If You've Heard This One album. When I told B about it he said that song would have made him keep crying but it absolutely did the opposite for me. It just reassured me that someone is still looking out for me. I knew when I heard, "That's my job, that's what I do. Everything I do is because of you, to keep you safe with me, that's my job, you see" that was a message to me that I don't need to miss him because he's always with me. Before the song could stop playing I saw 4 deer on the side of the road feeding and they all looked straight at me as I passed and then went back to eating without running away.
Over a week ago I noticed my passenger rear tire was low so B put some air in it for me. Today I worked from the road. I had a strange feeling that my tires might be an issue. A time or two I let go of my steering wheel just to see if the car would pull to one side or the other. It didn't but I still felt like the tires were an issue. I drove at least 85 miles and then stopped for lunch. When I came back to the car it hit me how I couldn't seem to stop thinking about the tires so I decided to give them all a look before getting back in. That rear tire rim was about an inch from being flat on the ground. I was very close to an air tank so I drove over and put air in it. That didn't satisfy me so on the way to the next town I called someone that lives in the town that works for our company to ask if there was a place there I could get my tire patched. She sent me to the Gas Hut. They fixed my tire. The guy there told me that it was leaking from the valve stem and that the air was going out of it just sitting there.

Today was just bam bam bam full of strangeness. I know I'm not the only person this sort of intuitive stuff happens to. I'd love to hear stories if anyone has one.

frankincense and myrrh skin balm

I can finally mark one thing off my to-do list. I got an email from Sacred Science back in December about the benefits of using frankincense and myrrh. It also had a recipe for skin balm using both. If you'd like to make some it's easy and hardly took any time. I am so excited to try this out. If this is life changing I'll be sure to let you know.

Home Sweet Home

We hiked to the top of the bluff across the road a while back and this was our view at the top. That little white box in the trees you see in the upper left corner of this photo is my house. This is a whole new perspective on what it's like to live where we live. The water on the right side of the photo is the Cumberland River. This place is magical. It really is. I just wanted to share this with you because it's a sight most folks will never see that I wish everyone could just once. Have a beautiful day.

I've been sick this whole year and so far, have not completed my usual New Year rituals. It's coming. I'm gonna get them checked off the list. I have done one thing in all my sicken stupor. While laying here and there with fever and snot factory in full production, I did take time to think about my word for the year. My word is Emerge. I plan on taking this year to get even closer to the little person I came here as. This passed year was a big year for me in that regard but this year is gonna be the year I really EMERGE.
