You're Not the Boss of ME!

Posted 04-20-2013 at 09:22 AM by LookinForMayberry

My sister used to tell me this any time she thought I was trying to tell her what to do. Since I was a pretty bossy older sister (I come by my bossy-ness naturally), I heard it a lot.

Coincidentally she was correct. I wasn't and am not. Indeed, no one is the boss of us except us.
It's called "Personal Responsibility."

That includes our reactions to others. How many times have I said, or heard others say: "She makes me so mad!"? Or, "You...

Saturday's Menu

Posted 04-19-2013 at 03:05 PM by LookinForMayberry

I'm hosting dinner for the group of women I meet with monthly to visit and work on our various projects. I decided on Italian, after one woman said she wanted spaghetti and she would make the meat balls. Here's the menu:

Wines:
Cabernet Sauvignon
Merlot
Pinot Noir

Antipasto:
- grape tomatoes with small mozzarella balls
- two different dry Italian salamis (hot and regular)
- marinated green olives and kalamata olives

If you just smile

Posted 04-12-2013 at 09:31 AM by LookinForMayberry

Nat King Cole made this song by Charles Chaplin, John Turner, and Geoffrey Parsons a top ten hit in 1954, two years before my birth. Lucky for me, it was one of my Dad's favorites, perhaps for good reasons.

"Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you"...

Equanimity, Where Art Thou?

Posted 04-11-2013 at 08:19 AM by LookinForMayberry

"Mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, esp. in a difficult situation."

I am not this. I want to be this, but I am not. I am not a lot of things I want to be. I think this has to mean I want to be what I am not, and that can not be good. Still, what if I am not good?
Lord, take this me from me, and let me be that.
How is that for confused?
Lord, be patient with me. Apparently I am a mess and need all the patience I can get.

Thank Heaven's THAT's Over!

Posted 04-10-2013 at 03:02 PM by LookinForMayberry

My account manager for the temp position called to tell me the client decided the project was too expensive and they needed to cut the number of consultants. I was the least qualified to do the work, and had already said it wasn't a good fit for me, so I don't have to go back. DH is disappointed, but I am THRILLED!

Thank you, God.

The call came in at the end of Bigun's and my walk along the waterfront at the top end of Lake Washington. We got not only a break...
