Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

And so goes my quest to clear out all
the clutter and have "A place for everything
and everything in it's place."

I just had to laugh when I went to the closet to
get a new light bulb and found this.
Really?  The Mister and I clearly are diametrically
opposed when it comes to my New Year's Resolution!

Random Thoughts

  1. The view from my kitchen desk.  Several things I love here...the red berries, the picket fence, and the last of the evening sun.
  2. The big kids came for a visit this past weekend.  New photo of them on my Instagram feed if you are interested.  A quick visit but very fun! Miss them already.
  3. Could you see the solar eclipse?  It was most visible here in Ohio from 1 to 4PM.  It got dark like evening for a little while. Always very cool to see.
  4. I can't believe August is almost over.  This summer has flown by! I love September, though.  Fall is almost here!
  5. A spider took a shower with me the other night.  Not fun.  Nope. I didn't know what it was at first since my contacts were out. I'm glad nobody could see the crazy little dance I did in there to get away. haha.

More Peanuts, Please

He watches me through the window as I
 sit at my desk and work.
And when our eyes meet and I reach for my
camera, he poses like this!  Charmer.

Helping me pick blackberries yesterday.
(cell phone photography)

A couple of nights ago I dreamed that I was watching a little
girl eat a huge platter of cooked spinach.  It was the size that
would feed a crowd and she was just shoveling it in, bite after
bite.  And I noticed that under several inches of spinach was 
just as much pasta.  Lots and lots of pasta. hahahaha.
Fortunately, I actually remembered the dream in the morning
which usually doesn't happen.  Doesn't that drive you crazy?
I looked up the words spinach and pasta
  at dreammoods.com and here's what it says....

"To see or eat spinach in your dream indicates you need to 
be reenergized or revitalized.  It is synonymous with
strength and power.

To see or eat pasta in your dreams represents your need for
energy.  Also consider the shape of the pasta and how it relates
to a waking situation.  Penne signifies your narrow perspective.
Spaghetti noodles symbolize an entangling situation.
Elbow shaped pasta represents your need to focus on 
yourself more.  And corkscrew pasta means that some
aspect of your life is out of control."

I always laugh at these interpretations!
Not that they are funny, but that they are spot on.
It totally blows me away.
Our subconsciousness is amazing. lol.

The only thing is that I don't remember what kind of
pasta.  I know it wasn't spaghetti.  I'm thinking it was
elbows or corkscrews but I can't be sure.

So a 2 layer, double dose of "you need to be revitalized 
with energy" is what myself is telling me.

Maybe that was my subconscious telling me
life is spinning out of control!  Life does seems crazy.
But a good crazy.  You know me... I like to be
in control of everything, have order and simplicity.
Maybe I should just eat spinach, take a bubble bath
and drink a glass of wine. haha.

Or just eat chocolate.  Chocolate would work, right?
