I have to say I have no idea where the week went. All of a sudden it's Sunday and time to put a blog together. I did not even jot notes over the past week of subjects to touch on. I guess I'm winging it this morning...LOL!
I was trying to think of something fun today so I Googled today's date (I love the fact that every day is a day for something). Today is: NATIONAL LIPSTICK DAY | NATIONAL CHICKEN WING DAY | NATIONAL LASAGNA DAY. Will you celebrate all three or pick one? I have to remember to look the days up more often as it definitely gives me something to smile about.
On the FB page, I try to post only positive thoughts/ideas, as I feel there is enough negativity out there in other places. I try to post only a few items a day and usually because they resonate with me. There are days when I could post lots and lots, but I try to keep it to a minimum as not to overwhelm those that follow me.
Did you catch a glimpse of the Blood Moon this past week? There was so much energy out there swirling about. I did not catch it rising, but I did get to see the full moon Friday and Saturday when I walked Lady before bed. I sometimes wish I had a powerful camera to capture the essence of what I see. I saw some beautiful photos from other parts of the world. Last night the haziness I saw reminded me of gossamer wings. Perhaps it's best to leave it to my imagination. I did hear last night that North America will have a better chance of seeing the lunar eclipse portion in the fall/winter timeframe.
I participated in group meditation via long distance this past Thursday as I could not attend in person. It was a little rough getting started as the aide finished up and left. I put on the Aura channel for background music, gathered my stones and sat quietly. My mom and Lady also had a few minutes of quiet time with me. I think I lasted about 25 minutes before my mind started the whirling dervish ride and I had to get up and do other things. It actually was an interesting experience. I still like actually being with the group, but at least I know I could do this if needed. Do you meditate?
As I mentioned last week I was part of a book challenge on FB. So glad I participated as I have gathered at least a dozen titles recommended by others. What I truly appreciated was the opportunity to review the books I posted and remember why they meant something to me. I am listing them below as perhaps some will resonate with you as well.
Garth Stein - "The Art Of Dancing In The Rain"
Paulo Coelho - "The Alchemist"
Richard Paul Evans - "The Walk" (and the entire series)
Wm Paul Young - "The Shack"
Edie Littlefield Sundby - "The Mission Walker"
Barbara Karnes, RN - "Gone From My Sight"
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross - "On Death and Dying"
I did not finish any books or watch any movies this past week...which also means I'm not sure what I did..LOL! I know I caught up on a few shows and did lots of laundry, but other than that..lazy days of summer.
I am leaving it here for today. Time to think about coffee and some breakfast. I hope you have a good week. Take care. Chat soon. Marie

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time." - John Lubbock
"Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds." - Regina Brett
