The message

The Universe sends me a message every weekday morning. They're always personalized, which makes me think they're just for me, but I bet if you've signed up for them you get the same message the same day I do.

No matter. The messages are thoughtful and entertaining. They nearly always make me smile. I don't remember them 10 seconds after I read them, but for that moment when I'm reading, the possibilities are endless.

I probably should have read yesterday's message before I left the house to go buy something to wear to the funeral tomorrow.
You have noticed, Debbi, that people usually do see past appearances?  
Which basically means that on any given day you can wear any old thing and they'll still get your goodness, feel your love, and know you rock.  
Fear not, they really see you -    The Universe 
Still. You don't want to go to a funeral wearing an old t-shirt and pajama pants, right? And besides, I have a big dinner to go to the end of the month and needed something appropriate (and blue) for that, as well. So I found a well-fitting pair of black slacks and a couple different-and-appropriate tops. And since I can't just go to the nearest major town for one thing, I also stocked up at Sam's Club. You can't have too much coffee here in the Middle of Nowhere.

Right now someone very important to me doesn't appear to be "getting my goodness, feeling my love or knowing I rock." That makes me sad. But it doesn't make me want to bend over backwards to be something I'm not. If these notes from the Universe have taught me anything in my drive-by readings of them, it's this:
I'm enough.
And you are, too.

And if you believe my father, I am not only enough, but plenty. ^^
Sometimes, a new pair of nice-fitting slacks can really be the thing you need! Right?

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
