Scattered Life Collective: Reflection on my Week

You can see more of the Scattered Life Collective on Cynthia's Blog, so please join in, if you haven't already!

The time right now is 6:12 AM, I have been awake since about 5:30
On the menu: I have no idea, I will probably have a coconut yogurt for breakfast, beyond that will be a surprise for everyone.

Out the window: It is dark but I am starting to see glimmers of light.

I am reading The Lonesome Gods by Louis L'Amour.  There is a gentleman I bump into at the River View Cafe a couple of times a week, and he always has a book in his hand, so we have been talking about what he has been reading and one book was a Louis L'Amour book, I mentioned that I had never read Louis L'Amour so he suggested The Lonesome Gods.  When someone suggests a book I generally will read it, without knowing anything about the book.  Most of the time I pick up great reads that way, and I have read such a variety in the process.  I am enjoying this book so far, will see how it goes as I work my way though.

Listening to: I am, at this moment in time, listening to the sound of the grandfather clock ticking away against the silent morning.  Quiet time here at my house. I enjoy these quiet moments.

Watching: On TV I am watching reruns of Tabatha's Salon Takeover.  Just can't seem to find anything to enjoy on TV right now, even with so many channels.  But I catch an episode of this in the morning and, after I journal, watch while I drink a cup of hot tea.

As for movies, I am debating the new Planet of the Apes movie, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes".  I remember planet of the apes from when I was so much younger, so I feel sort of a sentimental desire to see the movie. But from the preview, I am not sure I will enjoy it.  I do have a couple of friends, that I have chatted with, that said it was a great movie and worth the time.  As for me I am still on the fence, we will see.

We did see Hercules, and was surprised that I enjoyed it.  My boys love the action movies.  This seemed to bring Hercules down to earth, which was a nice change for a movie.

Good things this week:
   ~Rain for the garden, bringing with it cooler weather
   ~Getting things done
   ~Finishing up an art project
   ~Cucumbers from the farmer's market, none from my garden so far
Bad things and their silver lining:
   ~Letting go (wasn't sure if this should go on the good or bad list).  Silver lining-opening up space for more wonderful things to emerge.

Looking forward to:
   ~Seeing friends this weekend
   ~Starting a new art project
   ~Continuing to work on my blog's look and feel
   ~The start of a new Goddess journey on Saturday, if you want to join in for the Artemis Course just click       here and scroll down toward the bottom.
  ~The Love to Learn Homeschool conference coming up on August 2
This coming week is lining up to be a BUSY and EXCITING week full of lots of wonderful moments!

What fun to have someone else playing along this week. Nice to meet you, Pam! I love how you said that letting go of something opened up space for more wonderful new things. What a positive attitude. Tabitha's Salon Takeover was a guilty pleasure of mine at one time (I no longer have cable.) She's a smart cookie, that one. Hope to see more of you in the coming weeks!
