Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Happy Fri-Yay Fun Day Friends,

This week has been a lot of work with whirl winding days and nights with lots of fun serendipitous moments. How has yours been?

I’m feeling a little snarky today but it’s the day I’m “supposed” to have fun. Do you know this feeling when you are feeling everything but fun?

Even Gurus get irked. I’ll never forget when a client was going to visit the Dali Lama for a business deal and how excited we both were. We lamented about how it would go and the lovely tea that would be served while sitting in a circle enveloped in peace and harmony. The plane was a little late as I recall and when he arrived there were a few others in the meeting and the Dali Lama was ranting about starting late and shouting orders about all of the things they had to accomplish. This was furthest picture we had painted in our minds of what his experience would be like. We got lots of laughs about it when he returned and It always reminds me that even Gurus get mad so lighten up and be accepting when I feel perturbed.

Highlights:

1. Amazing vegetables of the last hooray of our summer garden and my friend’s garden’s are plentiful and delicious, I made some amazing tomato sauce, salsa, eggplant, and zucchini has been coming out the ears this season. I got some amazing figs for the first time and more to come, and a few strawberries and blackberries.

NOTHING LIKE EATING FRESH FROM YOUR GARDENโฃ๏ธโฃ๏ธโฃ๏ธ

Fresh garden delights
Sustenance found in growing
Prep the winter soil

2. Co-Ed Softball playoff game with the fam and dogs where everyone plays but me, but I’m a good cheerleader and someone has to watch Hunter. They lost the game but had fun and Hunter had a ball with all of the Dogs.
The man that my daughter bought the house from just happened to be on the other team and introduced himself along with 4 other neighbors that live in their hood. How fun is that! Love all their smiles even when loosing by 4 runs.

Adults, kids and dogs
Run, throw, hit and get injured
Win or loose have fun

My husband hurt his knee last week and had to coach (no golf for him… well until tomorrow) and there were 3 other injuries which makes me sooo happy I don’t play.

3. Back to my daughter’s new house to show her sister unexpectedly and I quickly threw some food in a bag, a pan and some glasses to cook a quick meal and it was so fun to slop up her kitchen for a change instead of ours.


It’s time to pay back
Yay younger generation
Happy mom and dad

5. I set my daughter up on a blind date with someone I met when I was trying to figure out how to get rid of the coyote. I can’t say much more because I don’t want to jinx it. I will just say he’s a really nice guy and they seem to hit it off but time will tell. They both like country and share the same birthday. I was rather excited until my friend pointed out that I don’t really know him that well but I did get references etc but now I have my mother worry cap on. As my daughter said “I’m an adult MOM”. True… the probs is I’m always a mom. Time to let go and trust.

On a similar note, you may know how I love to play matchmaker with our friends here in W.P. because I think so many of you are so amazing and why not set people up that you like that are wanting to have a relationship with friends? What do you all think of creating a W.P. dating site or have I completely gone bonkers? I won’t quit my day job… ๐Ÿคฃ

new love potential
matches made in country
a mom can dream right!

6. Our permit got approved for our remodel finally!!! YAY! Our town is tough to deal with and even though it’s all interior, they make it difficult at best.

dreaming up our plans
I want white, you want gray
smart man says, yes dear

Easy right? ๐Ÿคฃ Actually we pretty much agree on everything…. well in terms of the materials. Other than that I say tomato and he says tom-toe.

So what could I possibly be upset about with all of this good news going on? Oh I have a list a mile high at the moment but the good thing about Fun Fri-Yay is I get to focus on the good stuff and when we do that, we put our attention on what matters most and are able to access our higher self and let the other things drop away that truly don’t serve us.

With that I will end on a poem I wrote in reaction to an unruly neighbor that makes her own rules and everyone is furious. For years her dogs have come out and attacked our dogs and no matter how many times I have called and pleaded with her to do something, she never has. The dogs died last year and got a new puppy which is adorable but is out on the street and could easily get hit. Sometimes the act of writing and sharing diffuses the whole situation so I’m hoping this helps.

Oh for neighborly love
 

A pie to welcome you
or one in the face


No matter how close or far
Thereโ€™s always one

that screams and shouts 
breaks all the rules

I eat my humble pie 
as I walk past your house 

A hole in the tire 
makes everything flat

A break of the windshield 
Shattering your facade

Words fall on deaf ears
After all of these years

vicious dogs attaching
to creating your own driveway

Being red tagged by the town
no neighborly love 

Itโ€™s a wonder why you havenโ€™t
Been run down.  

Oh for neighborly love

RANT DONE AND NOW OFF FOR MORE TUB AND FIXTURE PICKING.

Have a great Friday and weekending!

Love and Blessings Always

๐Ÿ’–
