Good morning my friends, and how are you today. Happy Friday Eve to you All! Does anyone have any plans this weekend other than sitting at home counting tiles on the kitchen floor? LOL! 🙂
I don’t think I have plans as of yet. It all depends on my roommate “JK” returning home, for which I will be so happy. It has been a truly scary time for her and a very odd time for me. Her surgery was back on 01/05/2018 and since then I was watching and taking care of all the pets. Last week though, her sister picked up my roommate’s dog to bring her over to her house to play with her dog, and keep “JK” happy and preoccupied post surgery. The odd part is that it’s been so beyond quiet in the house, I’ve become stir crazed. Of course, I still have my talkative parrot, “Peanut”, but it just feels like a long void. I’m hoping I get good news today, and that they both will be returning home this weekend. At least that is what I’m praying for. 🙏
Last evening I began working on coloring the following mandala I had stored away in my closet for a rainy day, and guess what… It’s coming down at a pretty good clip and will continue to do so for the next three or four days. Blah! Anyway, This will keep me pretty busy because of all the detail work, but I love working on them. The best part overall was that I turned on meditation music I haven’t heard before, and it made my night very pleasant and relaxing. I was ready for bed by 11pm. 💗
Of course, I never fall asleep that easily, so I turned on Netflix and started scoping out what to watch. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular but happened across a documentary called “Not Alone” 📽 🎞
Based on a student Jacqueline Monetta, 18 who seeks to understand teenage suicide after her own best friend committed suicide at age 16. She interviews other students that volunteered to be interviewed about depression/anxiety and suicidal ideation. Obviously, this is not an easy subject matter to watch, but I highly recommend this if you have the means to pull it up on your Netflix site. I’m not going to give it away but were moments when I acquired a better understanding of depression and the abyss that sucks us down. Again, this was a very good documentary, one of which I think you can gain from. 📽 🎞
So, we went from 80 degrees and sunny yesterday, back to February like weather dropping back down to the 40’s. Bummer! That was a cruel little tease by Mother Nature herself. A cruel sense of humor… 🌧 ☔️
Let’s see, what does today have in store for me? I’ll continue working on my mandala, and listen to meditation music for concentration and relaxation. I’ll obviously, be here reading on/off throughout the day like normal, and I want to continue working on the afghan (blanket) I’ve been working on for a month. Make some Chai tea, and have a self-care kind of day.
Hope that all of you have a great Thursday, and have a chance to check out the documentary and/or just relax a bit too.
Take Care & God Bless,
