I'm feeling restless today - could be the weather - even my sleep was restless. No worries, I'm carrying my stones and will be diffusing oils in a bit. Not even music is calming me this morning as I've changed the station at least a dozen times. Perhaps its the weather or the fact that I have not left the house since Wednesday except to walk the dog. I guess I'm saving money as I'm not shopping (trying to avoid online) or eating out. I'll get out today to grocery shop as an aid will be here later this morning.
I have kept my head down and mouth shut in the community. I am no longer involved in any of the organizations except to read their FB pages - I don't comment at all. I do know that some talk about me is out there because quite a few of those that spoke to me in the past now ignore me or go the other way. I am ok with this as it will make decisions easier in the future. At least my elderly neighbor calls me every other day or so if he has not seen me outside. As we all know, things happen for a reason and I think I figured out this one.
I found out why the birds chirping in the morning seemed extremely loud and close by....they built a nest in the rhododendron bush outside my bedroom window. The bush is so overgrown and the lawn people were checking it out when they found it. The bush will not be trimmed until after it flowers again this year, but at least I now know the source. I just wish the birds would wait a little longer in the morning before they wake me...LOL!
My mom has been home for a little over four months now. I'm not sure exactly what I expected, but as I have learned my expectations mean nothing and I let them go. Mom had a very quiet week. My best memory of the week with mom. Wednesday afternoon I laid in bed with her and she held my hand on her chest. I must have gotten too comfortable because I fell asleep. I woke and she was resting, but still held my hand. We used to cuddle when I was young so it felt so good to do it again. I hold her hand a lot and say - you took care of me and now I'm taking care of you. Sometimes, she will tell me to go away or not to worry, but I tell her we are together. She did ask me if I was going with her - which threw me for a loop. I said no I don't believe so unless you know something I don't. But, I will meet you there.
I am part of book challenge on FB and I love it. I am taking note of the books mentioned by others and adding to my never ending list of reading materials. I have to admit I am also a it obsessed by the Lip Sync Battle: Police Challenge. So much fun to see all the fun and creativity. There are also some beautiful tributes.
I caught up on a few more movies this past week. I had a mixture of previously watched and some new ones for me. I won't tell you which is which...LOL! Movies: The Girl On The Train; Notting Hill; Ali; Mona Lisa Smile; Airport; Lions for Lambs; Thelma and Louise; and GI Jane. I also read two books.
I am going to leave it here for today. I hope you have a wonderful week. Take care. Chat soon. Marie
