If you are feeling stuck in a rut in your life right now, one of the most effective things you can do is let go of any grudges you’ve been holding — it will feel like you just attached one hundred helium balloons to your soul. Holding on to memories of how you were wronged isn’t going to make things right again. The only way that can possibly happen is if you find some silver lining in that cloud. Move forward, and leave the wrongdoers in your past where they belong.

On October 14 it was my 6 year blogging anniversary. I meant to write that day, to talk about what has happened over that time, but I couldn’t bring myself to rehash some of those events. And I can’t now either. I will say that I have abandoned my-meadow.com, it will go offline on October 31st, and this will be my only site, other than Daisys blog. I will eventually attempt to convert the archives over, but I am not sure when that will happen.
Fall, autumn, whatever you call it is my most favorite time of the year. The weather starts to change, the leaves start to fall, the evenings warrant a blanket, or a sweatshirt. In Tahoe I loved them even more. Brisk, windy, colors, frost, the smell of the fireplace. But I no longer live there, so I will have to learn to love southern California Fall. The owls start to hoot in the evening, I love this. At the other house, I could see them because of the view, roosting. When they would hoot, their little butts would push up, and they would lean forward and really get into it. I still have the image in my mind, so the sound is enough. The acorns on the oak trees fall, when the wind blows it sounds like hail on the roof! The big ring neck doves love them, so do the squirrels and the deer. I am fortunate to live in an area where I actually see more wildlife than I did in Tahoe. I wish it would rain.
BTW. I didn’t so the boot camp. I talked t the trainer at length, I was worried about my bad knee which needs TLC in Yoga class. He didn’t recommend it, but thought that a personal trainer 3 times a week could accomplish the same results. So now way right now. I will
I am thinking about doing this. It starts on Monday and it is from 6-7 Monday-Friday for 4 weeks. The program is actually 6 weeks, but I am signing up late. Actually I think I can stomach 4 weeks to start with, if it works and I like it I will do 6 more weeks maybe. I am kind of nervous; I haven’t committed to do anything like this for a long time, at least by choice. I think it will be good for me. Perhaps I will lose some weight, god knows I need to do that, and gain a little self esteem, and actually feel better once the soreness wears off, if it ever does.
