Tuesday's Totally Terrific

1. I am so grateful for falling asleep in my Lover's arms last night & sleeping thru the night and into the morning - it was the most peaceful, solid sleep I have had in days (used to be I would have said "a long time" but really I slept that way last time I was over here for more than a day or two)

2. I appreciate the silence & peace here, the kid-less stress-less -ness of it all right now

3. I am thankful for a place to rest my head & body and recharge during all the chaos someone else is trying to push onto me

Monday, again, blues again, Happy again

1. the dogs are very happy in the country & the family loves them, even the difficult one - he is just what their dog who is 2 months older needed - a buddy to chase & run around until they are exhausted with

2. Saturday night's Winter Solstice Celebration at Church was a-ma-zing! So glad I got to make it - I was 1/2 hour late since I ended up needing to drive out to the county with Mr Nice Guy to deliver dogs
