Silent Night

Last night when I got out of work it was snowing.  Snowing pretty hard for a quick little storm that took everyone by surprise.  As I walked out to my car, the church bells were ringing, playing Christmas songs- Good King What’s His Face and The First Noel.  I was the only car in the parking lot and the snow was fresh and fluffy as I brushed off my car to the Christmas bells.  It was peaceful and nice and made everything seem okay and beautiful, like newly fallen snow. Sometimes I need that quiet to remember that life is good.  Because it is, it’s all good.

Asked Today

Are you one of those hippie girls who smells like patchouli?

Once upon a time, my friend, I was.  And then I learned that appearances and beliefs don’t necessarily go hand in hand.  Better to hold onto the beliefs rather than the patchwork clothing…. yes?

Thanksgiving with the family was good. Haley not only had a turkey head dress, but also a turkey dance to accompany it. That girl is not very shy. Also pretty darn smart. She figured out quickly which team to be on for charades….. she had to act out “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and I was able to get it within minutes. Takes after her Auntie I do believe.

I also kicked some serious butt in Wii hula-hooping, I must say.

Tonight I am off to Leavitt Area High School’s second annual 15th year reunion. Yes suh!

Cyrus Watching Shrek

Originally uploaded by l_mazzola

The other night Shrek was on tv and I had it on for background noise while I was doing stuff on my computer. Cyrus normally doesn’t pay any attention to the tv, but for some reason he really was into this. This just cracks me up. He even moves out of the way as Shrek moves forward.

For What Its Worth

I have a tendency to let others define my worth.  If I get chosen to be on a committee at work, then I feel worthy.  If I get overlooked, I feel like the last one picked in gym class. If my students like me, then I think I am a good teacher.  If not, then I must suck at what I do.  If my friends would call me or come visit me, then I would know they like me, but when they don’t,  I think I don’t matter to them.  He doesn’t love me, so I must be unlovable.

I let the way somone else feels about me dictate the way I feel about myself.  And on top of all that, I dwell on the negative.  I tend to forget or take for granted those who do care about me, who do love me, who do make me feel good about myself.

So for all you who have been kind, who have listened, who have given me support– I thank you.

Today it felt like snow.  You know that feeling…. the air just feels and smells like snow.  My wood pellets were delivered today and I spent the evening loading them into my barn.  Winter is just around the corner.

Why is it that when I think of starting my stove up again, it seems like time is flying by but when I am told “I just need some time to figure things out”- it seems like time isn’t passing at all?
