The Scattered Life Collective

You can find more about the Scattered Life Collective at Cynthia's Blog, and please join in, I really enjoy seeing what everyone is doing, thinking, feeling at this moment.

My week in review and reflection:
Time:  6:39 pm
On the menu: Spaghetti squash with onion, kale and pesto!  SMELLS SO DELICIOUS!
Out the window: The sun is starting to go down on a gorgeous day, it wasn't real hot, there was a little breeze, just a nice day.

Reading:  The same books, haven't had a whole lot of time this week for reading, but I intend to rectify that and MAKE time for reading this coming week!  Right now I am reading Women Who Run with the Wolves, as well as Duma Key and Goddesses: Ancient Wisdom for Times of Change. 

Listening to:  Not a whole lot this week, a mix from my ipod, of course I love Randy Wood.  And his song "That's Why We Have Braids.'   Might give you a chuckle.


Watching:  OK we went to see the new Riddick 3 movie, and we are watching the newest season of Criminal Minds that just came out on netflix.  I am also re-watching the Merlin series, because it is just so "magical"
 LOVE IT!



Good things this week:
~I have a new craft space in the laundry room.  It isn't like it sounds, our laundry room is large, and it used to hold our exercise equipment.  We found a new home for the equipment so I now have two tables for myself, and a HUGE set of shelves to organize all my "stuff".  
~A rain free week.  Well almost, we did have a couple of down pours, but the left just as quickly as they arrived.  It is nice to see the sun for more than 5 minutes.
~A little bit cooler temperatures, I can feel fall coming on. 
~Feeling at ease with things.  
~Spending time with my boys, talking, and just connecting.

Looking forward to:
~Spending more time in my new space.  I am loving it already, but there is so much room to grow.
~Watching more Merlin
~Starting my Art Journal this week
~More elliptical, as walking is just aggravating my ankle

"Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." ~Steve Jobs

The Scattered Life Collective

Been having trouble blogging, just so many things rolling around in my head and in my life right now, hard to get it down in a blog post.  But this is just the jump start I need.  You can go to the Original Scattered Life Post to see others.

My week in review and reflection:
Current time: 8:44 am

On the menu:  I haven't even thought this far yet.  For breakfast probably a banana and a chai, supper will be out to eat with a wonderful friend..Can't Wait!  Love great conversation, laughing, and just having a freeform kind of evening.

Out the window:  I can see the sparkling grass as the sun hits the dew, just rising above the peak of the house.  Sunshine again, YAY!!  Seems like we have had so much rain lately that I love to look out in the morning and see SUN.  Another plus....no hens are out of the fencing!



Listening: Lately I have been listening to Natasha Bedingfield, especially Unwritten.  Just seems so pertinent right now.



Watching:  So right now my youngest, Phillip (16) and I are waiting for Insidious 2 to come out in theaters.  AND since we have not seen the first Insidious, that DVD is sitting by the TV waiting for us!!  Oh the joys of having a teen that loves scary movies. I loved horror types of movies as a teen but haven't really watched them in years, now that my youngest is enjoying horror movies I get to venture into that realm again!

Good things:  ~My weeks are always filled with good things.  So this week I really enjoyed spending time with friends at homeschool art day.  It seems like so many of my friends were there this month!
~Picking apples with dh, Jackson, and my oldest son, Dallen.
~Guacamole/movie night on Sunday.  Can't even remember what we watched but love the family time!
~Starting Guinevere in the Goddess course I am taking, this should be fun!
~Returning to my daily cuppa chai, can't beat that in the morning.
~More sunshine so far this week than all of the summer added together
~Out of my walking boot and my right ankle feeling OK
~Returning to yoga and meditation, two practices that I work on and leave and come back to over time.
~Letting go of unwanted hurt

Looking forward to:
~Seeing Insidious with my youngest son, Phillip
~Working on an art journal, new for me
~Delving deeper into my soulcollage card creating
~Returning to longer walks
~Seeing my round robin afghan when it is completed
~Organizing a "friends" yarn crawl to our favorite yarn shops around Western NC
~Daily talks with my oldest, Dallen, about his creations.
~Time with Jackson
