Honestly, I've been Mean 8(

Posted 05-16-2012 at 07:41 AM by LookinForMayberry

Just when I think I am on my road to spiritual harmony, Pema brings me back to earth with another view of myself. Today's email:

Subject: RESPECT FOR WHAT WE SEE

"Honesty without kindness, humor, and goodheartedness can be just mean. From the very beginning to the very end, pointing to our own hearts to discover what is true isn’t just a matter of honesty but also of compassion and respect for what we see." -- Pema Chodron

I've been pretty...

Sun, Fresh Strawberries, and Sand

Posted 05-12-2012 at 08:59 AM by LookinForMayberry

This morning I finished hand-sewing Bigun's disemboweled plush toys, and was pouring myself a fresh coffee when I caught the scent of the ripe strawberries DH brought home from the market yesterday. Rarely are the store bought ones ever ripe enough to actually smell or taste like a strawberry, but these are and the scent recalled a time.

It must've been in the summer, because the day was hot, the sun was high, and the sand beneath my bare feet would sting with each fresh step. It...

Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday to Me 8)

Posted 05-09-2012 at 05:58 PM by LookinForMayberry

The birthday "girl" is 56 today, born in '56. I am certain a numerologist could do something with that but I am not one. I just thought it was interesting.

DH surprised me with a waffle breakfast, sprinkled with fresh blackberries and topped with whipped creme, and six flaming candles. With a couple of eggs over easy, sliced oranges, and warm maple syrup, it was the perfect start to my day -- especially since I was scheduled to spend all morning in a workshop to learn...

Bringin' Out Big's Big Guns

Posted 05-08-2012 at 10:46 AM by LookinForMayberry

Dad's on the floor, going through his back exercises which at this moment means the "superman" (stomach down, arms out-stretched, legs extended, raise legs and arms).

Big' is nose to nose. Ears cocked, head tilted, in his own superman pose.

Dad's arms and legs lower, and raise again.

Big' leaps up, grabs the Kong pull toy, dashes back and drops it before Dad's nose.

Dad lowers, raises, again. Big' grabs the pull toy, dashes off...

There's NOTHING Better Than Kayaking

Posted 05-07-2012 at 05:15 PM by LookinForMayberry

I know, you might say there is One exception, but I disagree. There may be times when THAT is better, but kayaking is good ALL the time!

We've been home from our first trip out on the water for this season and I feel TOTALLY relaxed. There is just something that floating over the ebb and flow of the waves, rhythmically paddling in a nice, loose cycle -- it just draws the tension from me.

It was such a beautiful day for it, too. Sunny in the low 70s with just the...
