my broom my pumpkins

Halloween time.
Rich earthy colours abound.
Orange plump fruit

black is on stage too!
gold is my favourite colour for fall
orange is loud
brown is earth 
green is kindness

are you decorating?
do you like Halloween?

behind the trees-a rejuvenation

sitting and resting on the recliner this afternoon
it's 6 pm
I look out the living room window and get this view!

my week has been
well, busy enough for me.

I find I have to review the weeks events:

I gave blood on Tuesday
Went to my Chair Yoga Class Wednesday
Attended a friend's funeral Thursday
She was 64
I worked with her here in Yorkton for a few months
now she is gone she had health struggles and
it got too complicated at the end
It is not how long we are on this earth..
it is how we lived it (I thought she lived it well)

I put up homemade vegetable soup with our
potatoes and carrots and tomatoes we brought in
from our garden for supper.

I have done 3 beachbody workouts this week
from the 21 day fix program;
I am starting it again,
need that bit of weight training and 
cardio back in my life (wink)

We do so much more than we think we do.
I could add to it.  I find
if you review your week and write it down
its amazing how much you are doing;
it may seem small but it all takes time

I recognize ... that funeral took a bit
out of me

refreshing myself
it is important

Happy Weekend!

song writing fun

it was our first time spending Thanksgiving at our son's place
this year.  We brought up the turkey and some pies and garden
produce and cooked.
Tom made hot chocolate and popcorn one night,
and made his famous grilled cheese sandwiches for
lunch too!  We enjoyed!

I created this poem/song
as we said goodbye to our
(hubby added the last half)

"I got my turkey and ate my pie,
now it's time to say goodbye!
We had a blast,
 but it did not last,
cause' truck is packed -with a load,
and ready to head down the road"

Always something to be thankful for!

glow shrub

This week
I have driven by this little shrub several times.
It's like a ball of fire,
 all alone;
reminding me that life is
good and there is always something
or someone to lift you up even if
The weather is so dull and bleak and I know we
human's need sunshine after a couple of days.
This is my sunshine today.

Rooting In

Since my September is like a new year (as for many I am sure) and summer ends and issues get resolved or issues get started I needed something to strengthen prayer; to keep me more centered and in more control.  So.....

 I am re-studying the Chakra System.   There are 7 main chakra points in the body.  My root chakra was weak and so was my heart chakra.  I am a student of Healing Touch Energy Therapy and I have lost my way with this so I am getting on board again.

Here is my 7 chakras and what they mean to me (my interpretations) in relation to what they provide when the energy is open on each is my wording when I want to ensure I am open.

Root Chakra
(this is at the base of the spine)
it means that I feel I belong, I am safe and I am
enough  I am financially secure.  I am strongly connected
to my family and I love all my material possessions!

Sacral Chakra
(this is your reproductive area above the
pubic bone)
I am a sensuous woman and I enjoy my intimacy with
people who honour me.  I am creative and my creativity
is worthwhile.

Personal Power Chakra
(this chakra is under the breast bone in the abdominal section)
I have confidence and make decisions easily.
I communicate and am heard.

Heart Chakra
(this is where your heart is which is below the throat and above the breast or breast bone area)
I am full of gratitude and love.
I wish myself and others well, without feeling sorry for anyone.
I am lovingly accepting myself for who I am.

Throat Chakra
(this is at the throat area)
I speak the truth.  I enjoy my self-expression
I listen and I am heard.

Third Eye Chakra
(this is between the eyebrows)
I trust my intuition.  I am a discerning person.

Crown Chakra
(this is the top of your head or crown area)
I am connected to source
I believe and am connected to a higher being. (for me I am
connected to God as my higher being)

There it is!  These are all the 7 chakras and how I am when these energy centres are opened.  When they shut down or, I should say,  if one or two are shutdown, it is extremely helpful to know which ones and to understand this energy system called Chakras.  I am happy to get back to this energy body system and keep my root and heart chakra stronger.  Carol Tuttle is my favorite woman on the internet who lives and dresses and provides life skills in her programs LivingYourTruth/DressingYourTruth

How you may ask if you are still reading this? do you open these energy chakras?  Here is a video to explain how you can do it.  It's easy....

stressors out

we have been handling an issue with the purchase of
our home and acreage for the past year
and it has finally been resolved but not without a
poor relationship developed with the vendor
and extra funds $$$ poured out by us we had not planned for.
Once the shock that this money needed to be paid
and several conversations to understand why is now over.
 Over and resolved but still has me wondering what happens to the
emotions and anxiety of working it out with strangers I am still holding
  in my body.   We didn't win but we got our legal rebate $$.

It's like looking through the fence and seeing the other side
then when you are on the other side it just smells
like a dirty hole we were forced to climb through and rulings that was missed by our realtor
and our lawyer.
It is just money, but that line is getting old with me.

"Sunshine in and darkness out"
