Taking it all in

What can I say! Life is pretty good right now. One of my goals (kinda like a bucket list) for my 50th birthday is to be more present; be more in the moment; be aware of my surroundings. I've beem pretty good at this ever since I started living a more yogic lifestyle but I knew there was room for improvement. It's so easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the everyday - running around trying to do too much at once, trying to keep up with others and thinking we ''have'' to act like them and live like them in order to be accepted or to fit in. Being the non-social butterfly that I am helps me to ground myself and see things the way I want to see them.

I am very much aware that our veggie garden is cleaned and cleared til next Spring. All well and ready for the cold winter months up ahead.

I hope this year I get a few more trick or treaters than I've been getting the past few years.

Last weekend Dave and I visited the ocean...

... and again tonight.
It's that time of the year - AGAIN ! Eight cords of firewood need to be brought in the basement. I sooooo love the smell and feel of a wood fire.

This afternoon Dave and I went to the theatre at the university to watch the ''70's Show''. A group of very talented local musicians put this show together. It was awesome. Very professional in my opinion (and Dave's. And he sure knows his music).

Wishing everyone a good start of the week tomorrow. Hopefully for next post I'll have a picture of the huge pile of books that I've found at Frenchy's in the last two months. There are some good ones !
