Something New

I did sign up for the pen pal program with one of my book Facebook groups and my first pen pal is from Italy! Lucky for me….she speaks way better English than I do Italian. It will be a new adventure for me…. getting to learn about someone who lives in Italy, plus it will be great practice for me.

I even joined the Italian version of the book group on Facebook. Obviously I have to click the translate button but hopefully I will retain some of what I see. I also made a pen pal from the states because I think it will be fun and I have said for years that the craft of letter writing is a lost art.

I came up with my own Italian class project yesterday. We learned time last week and I work with time all day so I made these….

Yes….Force of Nature Girl and I have basically a shrine to Outlander in our corner and this is one of mine. That page a day calendar I bought has given us some great images.

Has anybody else been feeling “off”? I noticed it Sunday when the girl and I were out for half a second.  I didn’t want to be out at all and I was extremely cranky about everything. I remember looking at the girl and saying “I’m sorry I keep snapping at you…I have no idea why?”  I am still feeling the same way so I had to text Mountain Woman to see if something was up. Venus went retrograde Sunday and while it’s great that it makes sense….this also means it’s not going away anytime soon. I don’t like feeling this way at all. The girl is the closest to me all the time so it will be the worst for her and I have been extra cranky with my comments.

Last night while I worked on those clocks at the kitchen table I kept a steady burn of sage going. I didn’t even realize how smoky it was until the girl opened the back door. My throat was even a little raspy today from the smoke last night and I was still cranky!!! Sage isn’t going to help me this time… so what uglies  have I pushed down that are ready to bubble their way to the top? Ugh…sometimes “doing the work” is just too much….but I will get through it. I don’t know if anyone will still be talking to me when it’s all said and done….but I will get through it…Zia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.
