|bye bye June|
Finally I can settle down and post - I've been very busy this past week, but in a good way.
I hate talking all the time about weather but I guess I just am really into it - and especially when it does affect my life. It has been so doggone HOT. I stopped checking how hot it is. Anything upwards of 110+ all seems the same to me - miserable. Right now, the Husband just got home from work, and he is out there mowing the backyard before it gets too hot. It's about 88 right now. I think my poor tomatoes are drying on the vine. They need sun yes, but I think we need to use some kind of solar screen to keep them from cooking! I feel sorry for our little fish in the pond - they go deep, in the afternoon and hide under rocks. Supposed to be hotter tomorrow - Yesterday we were 110.
I paid bills yesterday and got myself all set up for July. - I still am finding it hard to budget with a once month income. I guess it takes time to master. Things happen, and unexpected expenses that really drain the checking account to where, these last few days we are living on fumes! Only because I am in a good mood - it is kinda fun in a way - to see what we are made of. But when I am feeling down or in a funk - I start all of that stinkin thinkin crap in my head, which really makes me spiral down....
I am in a good place mentally, right now and I honestly don't know why. Perhaps reading more positive books and that one by Joyce Meyer is really good and makes me THINK in a more positive way. Although I do have to war, with my depression on a daily basis, I just need more tools to use. Prayer helps - it really does. And focusing on others instead of me, myself and I. (within reason of course)
Tomorrow when the Husband gets off work, we are going up to Whiskeytown Lake for a swim with Daisey. Too crowded on the weekends.
So, what have I learned from June?
- That my special place happens to be in my thinking - it's been there all along.
- Stubbed toes HURT like Hell and healthy toes are very important.
- Snails do not belong in the house
- I'm going to have a great-nephew in early Nov.
- Don't let the turkeys get you down
- I can stretch myself and live to talk about it later
- You can't hide from your weight-coach forever (My weigh-in is this Tuesday)
Bye bye June 2013 - it was nice knowing ya....
