My Rest Day :)

Posted 05-27-2012 at 09:40 AM by LookinForMayberry

I just finished watching The Universe: Strangest Things. At the end of the show one of the scientists commented that in her view humans were the strangest thing in the universe. Judging from my observations over my life of 56 years, I agree!

DH just returned back to the basement for another session of radio contesting, and I just finished a session of working on my needlepoint -- time for me to get to those books. Yesterday, I finished financial statement analysis, and now I want...

And he's OFF! 8)

Posted 05-23-2012 at 10:04 AM by LookinForMayberry

There's nothing that brings a joy to my heart like Bigun when he's being Bigun.

He was "sleeping" here on the opposite side of the sofa, obviously with one eye open, because suddenly he was off like a shot. My sweet little floppy-eared, black beagle was suddenly a hair-raised demon at the window, snarling and snapping at the squirrel on HIS fence.

"Outside with That, Bigun!" and he's OFF. Out the sunroom, I hear his scrambling down the stairs...

Allowing space

Posted 05-23-2012 at 07:24 AM by LookinForMayberry

ALLOWING SPACE is the title of the Pema Chodron email newsletter sent to me this morning, the first of my (deceased) mother's birthdays that I will experience without her.

Losing a mother IS enormous. It is the biggest thing that can happen, especially to a daughter. There is no one that has been with you longer, or shares your memories, who knows all the dimples on your butt (metaphorically speaking).

Pema says: "We can always sit down and allow the...

Why?

Posted 05-22-2012 at 08:09 AM by LookinForMayberry

Today I meet the only (of eleven) CPA that responded to my request for a mentor. She has a firm a few miles northeast of here, and by the looks of their website it is a successful one in this region. This is a "meet and greet" session, to "see if we like each other" (her words). We set the appointment about a month ago, and much has happened to me in trying to shift gears to an accounting profession. Some of my enthusiast gleem has proven to be just "flashing." It's...

Three of Four Wins, and Maybe a Fourth....

Posted 05-21-2012 at 06:37 PM by LookinForMayberry

My life has been a whirl of Employment Security workshops, counseling/advising sessions, records to retrieve, and forms to complete, but last week I made some progress.

1. I filed my application for for Commissioner Approved Training and Training Benefits, to be able to go to school and not look for work while I do, and receive an extension for unemployment benefits through the remaining six months of re-training that are not covered by my regular benefits. (The training was approved,...
