The week started out fantastic with an awesome Super Bowl. I did miss a few of the commercials as Lady needed to take a walk or two. I thought the half time show was really good. I missed quite a bit of the pre-game shows, but I did get to watch the Puppy Bowl. It's fun to watch the puppies run around and hopefully they have all been adopted. I was so glad to escape politics for a while.
I had an awesome class yesterday. I participated in a Reiki class. I was with three other women plus the master teacher. OMG I have not experienced that much energy in a room since I was in coaching classes. WOW!! I was exhausted last night, but in a good way. I slept like a baby and feel lighter today although still a bit tired. I receive energy massages once a month which are phenomenal, but to actually learn about how energy works and apply it....WOW! The class definitely helped me refocus on being centered and how important that is for living. I know there is still so much to process from the class and will definitely take me a long time to come to terms with the energy moving through me. I would highly recommend a class if you are so inclined. I can proudly say I am certified in Usai Tibetan Reiki 1.
Turned out my day out was beneficial for papa as well. It was a test (at least for me) of papa being alone and taking care of Lady. We brought in the big walker from the car so it would be safer for him to walk. There was still snow about and I cleaned as much as I could before I left. Luckily, the service road was plowed before Lady needed to be walked. Papa was able to walk her a few times and I felt better when I got home. This is a test for me because I have been afraid to leave him alone for too long. Part of me knows he will be fine, but that other part worries worries worries. I am trying to plan a getaway and now I feel a bit better about it.
I did learn this past week that papa has the best socks. I needed some warm wool socks to walk Lady when I remembered papa had a couple of pairs of wool socks unopened on his bureau. I grabbed a pair and I swear I have been wearing them ever since. Papa has been wanting me to go to LL Beans for new boots, but I keep putting him off. My boots are only ankle high and he wants me to get higher ones. Oh well, maybe next year as I am hoping we are almost done with winter.
I was able to get some reading done - not a lot but it's a start. I went to my favorite coffee shop yesterday and the owner presented me with a favorite customer award. I said to her my schedule has stopped me from coming every day, but she insisted that I am there enough to support them. I have to say it is so nice when local shops appreciate their customers. I have it in my car and it makes me smile when I look at it. She even handed me a free coffee. What a great way to start a Saturday! You know I'll keep supporting this establishment!
Thank goodness for the DVR as we have lost the satellite signal because of the snow. This is the first time in the past four days that it's happened so that's not too bad.
I am going to leave it here for today. I hope you have a good week. Happy Valentine's Day! Take care. Chat soon. Marie
