I awoke today to the sounds of Charles coming in. He was on his way to work. He happily told me it was snowing. I love snow. Mostly we get a mixture of ice and snow in this part of Missouri. I knew it should be snowing this morning….I got up to go see. Yipeee, soft white fluffy stuff. No ice! There are small and big flakes. When I took the pic, the sky was still a overcast. So, I knew more was coming. We have about 4 or 5 inches right now. I would like more. We shall see what happens.
I was going to go to the gym to walk today. Instead I decided my exercise would be clearing snow. I used to be able to do the whole driveway at once. Today, I would do a few shovels...rest...and repeat. I had done the walkway and top of my driveway when the Century 21 guy came by doing the road. He was very nice and offered to help me out. This is not part of my rental contract. Three swipes and done! Thanks anonymous snow plow dude...I was about "done" anyway.
There is a small slope behind my place. When we first moved here in winter of 2000, I bought Charles a snowboard for Christmas. He liked it at first but I guess the novelty wore off. I used it more than he did. We had lots of snow that year. I still have the snowboard. It is looking promising for “snowboard” weather. I think this will be my challenge for tomorrow. I don’t do inclines well at all….at least not on the way up :)
I know some people have been wondering why I went on a posting spree and then stopped suddenly. Well, I have had a challenging time at work and have been very fatigued. It isn’t the physical stuff. It is the office politics. I just don’t get it!
So, what have I been doing? I have been working on myself. Meditating….Growing.
Trying to learn why this new challenge is occurring. Trying to learn not to be angry.
Understanding that others may embrace their negative feelings….and I have the right to not be caught in that loop.
Learning that some people will present as friends……and aren’t.
Knowing that what is important is not how others treat you but how you treat others….how you think…..and what you do.
Ok, that is all of philosophical ali today. Take care.
