I've been doing a little HAPPY DANCE and singing It Missed Us, It Missed Us since Sunday night even though the Pres drove me to my son's to watch Mia in case school was cancelled. Mia went to school and I drove back home in my Wrangler.
When I get behind the wheel of my Wrangler, my mind soars and feeling free, I feel the outdoors. Am I losing it? Although the odometer reads over 190K miles, it still loves to climb the hills out here in the Quiet Cornerand seems to have as much energy as I do.
Speaking of home, the adult eagles have been chattering and chirping up a storm throughout the day. Turning my head in the direction of their sound the other morning, I watched one adult soar through the thick woods toward the nest. It all makes me think that mating has occurred and perhaps egg laying has either happened or will be soon. My weekly visits will begin.
When I went to Tai Chi the other night, we focused on something known as Animal Frolics, another intriguing phase of the ancient art which is directly related to the Five Elements for Five Seasons. I found the entire concept and thought process so interesting...:)
When you've been exposed to something very contagious but don't feel sick, how long should you avoid others? If info says you can develop symptoms 2-7 days after being in contact with the sick person do you avoid people for 7 days?
While living in Virginia, I met wonderful people. One young woman and I hit it off immediately. Meeting her at the Y, we would sometimes meet and walk the hills of Rocky Mount early in the morning, chatting the entire time. Recently divorced and a mother of two, she and the kids came to our cook-outs. They felt like family.
Sometimes we would meet at a local restaurant for coffee before she had to pick-up the kids from school. Always trying to encourage and convince her to apply for a "better" job, I would conduct mock interviews with her as we sipped our coffee.
Then, the day came. Suiting her hours, close to home and the school, a job became available. It was as if her guardian angel was answering our prayers. She got the job and the following Christmas, her son, the youngest of the two children, picked out a pair of Disney purple and pink striped socks for "Miss JP," as he used to call me. They were from he and Katlyn and became one of my favorite things!
It was a sad morning. Saying good-bye is never easy.
