This years best...may look a little different...and that's okay

There is an illness of a sort that goes around this time of year.  I had it last's not about over eating...however, that could contribute.  It's more about over doing, over thinking and yep, maybe over achieving.

I laid in the bed unable to sleep, feeling that I was already behind.  My mind wouldn't stop spinning as I wondered where I put the lights and how I would get the leaves raked, and the floors polished.  I wondered how I would get shopping done, and cookies baked, cards addressed and secret Santas ready.

I was over-whelmed.   I could have continued to wrestle with prep and circumstance, but thankfully I tuned to Miss Universe...who reminded me to just go with spirit...Simplify.

Each year is best this year may look just a little different from last year...but it will be my best...and that's all that really matters. 

I feel better already.

In your face...

Its been hard to have the time to sit down and put something together for the Book of Lurlene...things float through but the "sit down time" to pull them all together has narrowed.

But with the wind blowin hard today, it reminded me of how much I used to love to wrap up and go stand in it. Once Mr C. had to pull me off the porch during a hurricane, but there is something about wind and how standing against it makes me feel stronger and I'm times...foolish. 

Cold front headed our way...even the leaves are "leavin".
