Deep Freeze

Even on Monday when The Girl and I were home with a slight stomach bug I said to myself…”why today…why not Wednesday?”  Too bad you don’t get to pick the days you are sick because the next two mornings are going to be brutal.  Most of the local schools are closed for the next two days. The university closed for tomorrow and hopefully they will on Thursday as well. It’s ridiculously cold out there!

Yesterday during my sleep coma of a nap I had one of those dreams. You know the ones….. you know they mean something but you don’t know what? There was an attic (higher self) that was completely empty except for a faucet in the middle. I remember thinking “what an odd place for a faucet?” Water means emotion but the faucet wasn’t dripping. I have decided to try and consciously go back to the dream and carefully turn it on and see what happens. Worst case I have to go back in and shut it off. I will try and remember what the hypno woman taught me…to step out of myself, observe, and consciously step back in. Can I do it? I don’t know? I fall asleep too easily most nights. I was going to try it during my nap at lunch but I fell asleep.

Last night I picked up a box of pictures. Of course I picked up the hardest one to go through…the box of photos of my great uncle. The first thing I pulled out was a stack of letters….

I only read a couple because it was late but I think I found next years family history project. Do I want to try and make a book online or the old fashioned scrapbooking way? I would need to make five. Normally it’s four but my cousin gave me this box and the letters were written to her mom. I should make it online in case her brothers or sister want a copy, then they can just directly order it. I guess I should figure out how many pages the book needs to be before I decide? It’s a good thing I have almost eleven months to figure it out.

Once I scan in the letters, I think I will put them back like I found them with the red ribbon. I have stacks of old books strategically placed for decoration, why can’t I do the same thing with these letters? I am lucky to have inherited them.

Butternut squash fries are the bomb and one of the few new recipe successes I had this weekend. It’s hard finding a new variety of eats. I was super frustrated this weekend with all of the new recipe fails. Since I missed work yesterday I did the weekly weigh in today. Same…just the original nine plus the one from the second week. Nothing gained, nothing lost.

I have to come up with something for a potluck on Thursday and I will probably experiment some more tomorrow. It’s half day Wednesday and too cold to go anywhere not necessary……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.
