I’m tired of not blogging, but all I’ve really been thinking about lately are things that make me happy, to counteract dealing with a bit of a mess someone left me to deal with when someone hopped on a boat for the winter. And I’ve been thinking of writing. And organizing.
So I have nothing interesting for you, except that did you know how often I see shooting stars? At least two or three a week—more if there’s a meteor shower. I’m grateful I get to spend two hours outside every night walking. That’s lucky.
Also, a cat is trying to adopt me. I think it has an owner. It’s well-fed and a couple days ago it seemed as if it had been groomed. They leave it outside all the time, though, and it comes to my camper every night to talk to my cats through the screen. (Sometimes to fight with my cats.)
It seems lonely. Sometimes it follows me on my walk, so the other day, I sat with it. And I was thinking how lucky I am, that if a cat wants company, I can just sit with it for forty-five minutes.
Before I came to Arizona, I wrote and taught 12 – 15 hours every day. Working two jobs was a lot. I got more done, but man, I was constantly stressed.
So I’m also grateful to be living life at a slower pace. I’ve worked hard to make that happen, and it took a long time for me to adjust, but I love it now. It freaked me out at first, LOL!
So that’s my life. How is yours? What are you grateful for?
