Boo Hoo Hoo!!

It's raining and raining and raining....I hear that this is the truth many places on the West Coast and that there is loads of cold, cold and/or snow lots of other places.
It's only the end of January and I am already for a week in the SUN!
I know that I am grateful that I am not in Haiti cleaning up the problems that the earthquake there heart goes out to the beautiful people. I am so pleased to see the help that is coming through for the cause.
Thanks to all who have come to the rescue!!

But what about Me? Here's what the sky looks like at 8:50 am today. This sky does Not make me want to get up and get things done!
I know that most can relate to this nonsense..."it's winter"... but I am a Sun girl and I don't care for it. I should live in a place where it rains...hard even....for...hey, I'm up for 24 hours straight....and then it clears with blue skies and sun!

I mostly want to curl up into a a lot of TV...knit socks...and of course eat loads of carbs...including chocolate.... Anything.
Really...the fact that I have not fallen into this is an amazing feat!
Even Buddah...though he's too cool to say getting tired of the muck.

I don't want to go outside....
I don't want to do any of the inside work that I have to do....
My mind wanders off into the land of icky subjects and tries it's best to settle there....
I'm constantly trying to find my way out of the land of icky subjects.....

I would love to hear what you are doing during this gray time. If you are one of the lucky ones who live in the SUN....can I come visit?....Only joking...sort of.

We are off to Madrona Winter Retreat in a few weeks. It's always a lift..for many reasons!
We then are off to Stitches West in Santa Clara, CA....and a chance of seeing the SUN!!
If you are out there...please check in and say HI....You will brighten MY day!

So much to wish for on this first day of a new year...
It holds such promise.

May all of those I love know how much.
May I be forgiven my failings.
May I always feel loved.
May I exhibit the best parts of me.
May I be happy, secure and healthy.
May I be granted new, exciting and wonderful adventures.
May I allow the vision and direction of my life to be filled with Gratitude and Grace.
May I find peace, acceptance and understanding for myself and others.
May I enjoy each day of this new year....
And you as well.

I get pretty sentimental this time of the year. I miss those people who have left my life. I try my best to accept that it's for the best and a lot of the time I can...but I still miss them...the promise of what could have been. The time spent enjoying their company...
This song represents the longing I feel...

I close my eyes, ignore the video and listen to Mairi Campbell and my heart....
I hope that you too will enjoy this beautiful rendition of this lovely poem by Robert Burns....put to voice.

Happy Day....Happy Year!
