Almost the end of the year.
Monday, July 27, 2009
I think it was my friend Faith who said that there are things that you used to say a lot as a kid that you never have to really say as an adult.
"Prickers!" for example. As a kid you would yell that warning out to others that were following you thru the woods or empty lot.
I just finished getting all snagged up on the prickers in the blackberry bushes trying to pick two cups of berries to make muffins with. I am in Lost City West Virginia again visiting Phil.
He went and got about 6 eggs out of the henhouse to go into the muffins.
Can't wait to taste em.

Well...tonite when I went to water one of my hanging plants I discovered what was going on.
Mama was protecting her babies!!
I guess I am going to have to let this plant die. I don't want to drown the lil ones.

This was one of them. Me, my brother and sister. I guess I was about 5.
Doesn't Kelly look studious in her cat-eye glasses.
Michael looks soooo innocent.

It's not a good idea to "blog" when you are half in the bag. But I am. And I am "blogging" anyway. While making my artichoke dip for the party I am going to, I have been imbibing on the Skyy Watka.
I can't believe I made it through 2008. It was the hardest year I have faced...ever.
I don't like to say that, because I am just sure that our god is a vengeful god, and will show me what a "hard year" really is if I keep whining about it. AND I do know that compared to so many millions of people on this planet I have it sooooo damn easy.
But...and it's a big butt. It's been an awful year for me.
My father died in February.
I lost my job of 20 years in June.
My Spousal Equivalent broke her leg in three places in June.
My mom had a heart attack in October.
This year has sucked. But... and it's a big butt.
I have a new job that I really like.
Monica's leg is doing great.
My mom is doing better then ever.
Okay. Happy New Year.
And just so you don't worry....I do have a designated driver tonite.

A friend recently told me that she doesn't feel like her "new year" starts on the 1st of January. She feels like it starts in the fall some time.
Not me. I am ready for that fresh, clean, straight outta the box, New Year at midnight on December 31st. I like the pomp and circumstance. Everything in life is too casual now.
I feel like we need more honest intention in our daily lives. More with the hard shoes. Less with the sneakers.
I think in 2009, we really have to get down to business. Get to work.
That doesn't mean work on things that you don't want to work on. That means work on them with honest intention. Make it important.

I have a feeling it will be the coldest also.
I went to have coffee with friends this morning. After that I went down to Lake Erie to take some pictures.
It was so bitter cold. My face hurt after being outside my car for just 30 or so seconds. The brisk icy high winds were very hard to take.

We walked around for a while. Hudson is nice. Really great houses. Lots of little shops.
After that, we went to check out Chagrin Falls. Just mostly to see what Hudson is aiming for. Chagrin Falls does it better. You know what I mean.
On the way back into Cleveland we stopped to check out the Wade Oval "Ice Rink."
I use quotes because the ICE is made of plastic. There were a dozen or so people skating around. It looked gorgeous...but sounded all wrong.
It didn't sound like ice skating. I still recommend you go check it out tho. They will be open 'til February.

Last weekend I watched "Don't Need You: The Herstory of Riot Grrrl."
It's a short documentary on the whole Riot Grrl scene in the early to mid 90s. It was pretty good. I thought it left out a lot of bands and artists, but it did pretty much focus on the main bands, Bratmobile, Heaven's to Betsy and Bikini Kill.
