uprooting

standing upright
in my l’il garden patch
hoe in one hand
phone in the other
turning on tunes next
dog supervising
backyard work
begins again

mom stuff

my dishes are all done
every last one
even though it won’t last
I’m savoring this job is past
laundry is next
then perhaps I can rest
for that’s the beauty
of Sunday evening

not one bit lonely

I have the house to myself.
My husband is at work for a few hours more.
My boys are at the neighbors playing. My big Blue pup was dropped off earlier this morning, to be boarded for a week or so, at a friendly canine hotel.
This silence is sorta divine.
Oh. I love being home alone.
Well, just me and the cat. =^.^=
Why is it, with a million things to do, all I want to do is nap?!

the In Between

In reply to the question I posed in, “I think too much”, earlier today 

takingstockofwhatmattersmost wrote, “You must walk along the razors edge of reading and writing…not to mention family, friends, work, etc.”

I cut myself on razors. 

I am not good at juggling. 

I am not good at balancing. 

I am not good at boundary setting.

I tend to be All or Nothing.

All in.

Or all out.

A Balanced Life is the In Between. 

Striving for that. 

May take a whole lifetime to achieve it. 

I’m having a hard time with this lesson. 

Hoping I have more ahead of me, than the years I’ve lived to date.
