Feasting and Flooring!
Hello to all, and a Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Canadians out there!
It's hard to believe it's Thanksgiving weekend already! Now, we will blink and it will be Christmas! I guess time really does fly when you're having fun!
Thanksgiving, a time for reflection, evaluation of priorities, a time to be thankful for all that is good in our lives. A time to be grateful for family, friends, a warm home, clothes on our back, and being able to provide the same for our kids.
Or, it could simply be a time you cherish pigging out on Turkey and Pumpkin pie, either way, it's all good.
As I am sure you've all heard, this week, Steve Jobs passed away. Mr. IMac himself. What an incredible impact he made on our world and the way we function within it. One person changed how millions communicate, listen to music, go to school, wow. I guess he is a great example for those of us out there who think being one person is somehow inefficient to accomplish anything.
Ok, about the past week.
I'm not gonna lie, this week has been mostly about........you guessed it.... what will soon be my new beautiful bathroom. It also involved filling a request for a few books ordered from my website, (I still need to find a brilliant, free way of advertising the site!),buying a turkey and dropping it off at my daughter's house, receiving an invitation to to a reading at the school in Major,Saskatchewan, and touching base with places that have already booked visits. Yes between DJ/Karaoke gigs and readings, the calendar is filling up quite nicely.
As for the bathroom........ we have paint and flooring!
Because my first born and her hubby were so kind as to host Thanksgiving this year, (yeah, still have a toilet in my dining room) we are able to really get to it with 3 days off. The tub and shower will hopefully be in place today! And.... functional very soon. Yay!
In the upcoming week:
Prepare for readings on the 17th, 18th and 19th.
Put together a brilliantly, ingenious proposal for the toy broker so they can see that the Lexi puppet IS the next tickle me Elmo! ( it could happen! Don't laugh!)
Finish the application for the Disaster relief people and maybe get reimbursed for some of the damage done to the basement.
Need to find time to rehearse for Halloween show, and start putting costumes together!
Also this week, as with every week within the last few months......... bathroom.
Have a great week and have awesome turkey induced naps!
Until Next Week....
May your days be in technicolor, HD, 3D, each as bright and brilliant as a child's painted rainbow.
May each one demand your full attention, refusing to go by unnoticed, especially if you feel low.
May we recognize the low days as the counterbalance for the great ones, and not let them get us down.
May we understand that a rollercoaster is not much fun if it just stays level on the ground.
May we experience true gratitude for all that surrounds us in our basic day to day.
May we register and take to heart the automatic thank you's we often hear and say.
