The past week has been one of the better weeks I’ve had in a long time and I really feel like it’s going to keep heading in that direction. One of the most important parts of getting back to my happiness is being able to think without your mind racing and dragging you back into that dark place.
One of my new obsessions is BBC’s Sherlock … I had seen promos for the show, but blew past them. Then I watched and got hooked. And I’m officially all caught up — just waiting for Season 3 now. I said all of that to say — the quote you’re seeing, above, is from Sherlock. It’s what he does when he really needs to sort things out and well, I totally understand that mindset. I love my ‘me time’ because it allows me to clear my mind and that’s a healthy thing to do.
I’ve been busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger with updating/adding pages and exporting my blog content to my new Blogger account — it’s nothing more than a double press — I want a bigger audience and I’ll eventually connect both of those blogs to my own personal website … The Big Pixture — which I’ve been working on to update! 🙂 All of this kinda stuff takes me one step closer to my happiness … it’s the creative side of me that has been buried for months and it’s starting to push its way back … to the front! 🙂
I’ve started to really get into interior design — several of my friends have solicited my opinions and then did the work — and it turned out great. It’s really easy to design when it’s not your money being spent!!! I think I have a really good eye and love figuring that kind of stuff out … if you have a creative thread in your soul — it shines through in all areas: art, cooking, graphics, design, et al. It’s kind of amazing to know that being a creative person helps jump start the journey back into the light!
Today is the Wimbledon Men’s Championship and alas, my favourite – Rafa Nadal, is not there. 😦 He never truly even got out of the gate. I wonder if the entire hype regarding making history at the French Open kinda rattled his mindset? And with him out, I didn’t even really get into Wimbledon this year – and I always watch every single match live or TiVOed. I am glad that Serena won her 5th title — I like her a lot now; however, I didn’t care for her that much in the earlier part of her career because of the attitude (which she still has, but she handles it so MUCH better now). So, hopefully Rafa settles down and focuses on the tourneys left for this year – including the US Open in NY!
Nica poking out from under the bed covers this morning …
So, yesterday was a ‘day for the dogs’ … literally. I bought a new bed and lots of goodies for Nica. The two things she loved more than any of the other things were her new bed and the new lining for her ‘house’ (that’s what I call her crate and it’s the only word she knows for her crate). She rooted around in her new bed and then promptly found a t-shirt of mine lying in the bedroom and proudly carried it to her new bed … and then did the same with a pair of socks to her ‘house’ … it’s amazing, to me, how my scent provides her with comfort when I’m not around … I’ve had to be really careful about what I drop on the floor – clothing wise – because she’ll drag ANYTHING to her bed or ‘house’ … if you have a dog, you know exactly what I’m talking about! 🙂
So, I’m ready to get my day underway … lots of little things I need to do and I cannot procrastinate today! 🙂 Here’s to a great Sunday and what’s left of the weekend!
