Where did the time go?

Where did the time go from my last entry in late September to over two months later? Well they say time flies when you are having fun, however it also flies when life isn't kind and fun. A lot of things have  happened since the last entry, a lot of sad things and some life changing things are in the works.
Remember the last entry....Pumpkins for Cathey? Shortly after that entry our good blogger friend has lost her fight with cancer. It was such shock and such a sad time, even though I knew she was very ill, you always have hope that things get better. But they didn't for Cathey. There hasn't been a day gone by that I don't think about her and her young family, I have re-read her last email to me a hundred times. I will always treasure the memory of a blogger friend I have never met in person, but thru emails and letters and packages. She will always be remembered as the kind and thoughtful person she was and her great spirit will live on in her young sweet son. What a gem she was!
Starting the entry with this makes really everything else that happened fade into no real this will be it for today.

Not a very introvert thing to do

Yesterday I spent the afternoon in pouring rain with the donkeys Bob Ray and DaVinci at the St. George Applefest. Usually this is a very busy weekend for the Fest, but do to the lousy weather it was a very quiet day. The rain finally stopped coming down in buckets by 3 pm and more people came out and a lot of them visited  with the donkeys. After our shift we took the boys for a walk around the area and they just loved to stretch their legs and get going. Man, I forgot how much strength it can take to walk a donkey and not let him have his way. but after a few minutes Bob Ray and I had a good thing going. He is a very good donkey. After that I drove back to Brantford and cleaned up a little bit, put on some dry clothes and left for Kitchener to meet up with a friend to go to a friend's birthday party. Omg I love my GPS, this place was total strange territory for me but my GPS got me there so easily. I should take this drive in the daylight now, to see where I actually was. I had a great time at the event and it was nice to just sit, watch, listen to great music and hang out with my friend and spend time together. Beside my friend, I really didn't know anybody, well I met the birthday girl and her partner at a previous event, but didn't really know them. They certainly are amazing people and it was a great evening, even though I was way out of my comfort zone lol....

High Intensity!

The last week was very intense at work, to the point that it immensely interrupted my already crappy sleep patterns and I felt like I could hardly function, especially at work. So it was time to have a feirce conversation and we did over dinner on Friday evening. Soem decisions have been made and hopefully it will help us to move slowly forward and not stress each other out. It was a nice evening and I drove back with a sense of relief and peace in my heart, and that's worth more than anything to me right now. We sort of came to an understanding and hopefully it will smoothen the right now rough situation, for all of us.

But then there is nothing a little chocolate can't fix. :)

The ups and downs of daily life....

....ok I have had many emotional up and downs over my life but the last few weeks must have been the most intense times ever, hot and cold, up and down and all over the place, great and lousy, rewarding and frustrating. Phew it's a little bit exhausting but I think all worth it in the end. I will just let it be and be present and take it as it or cold, up or down, exhausting and exilerating. Well the intensity of it all keeps me propelled forward every moment of the day. We do have a lot of big issues to work out or better said to work around. It's not impossible and well again all worth it in the end. It's all about having Faith, Trust and achieving Peace. 
Just Breathing!!!!
