I am on day one of my body, mind, and soul renewal program. Last
night was okay, but I did wake up at 3 am and started reading a new book
until my eyelids got heavy around 4am. So far, I like this book, the title is
Still Life by Louise Penny. My dear friend Claudia over at
Mockingbird Hill Cottage, likes Louise Penny very much, so I thought
I would give it a try and checked out a copy at my local library. I do
like mysteries and am working on my own. I think I told you that before
So when my eyelids started to get heavy, I crawled back into bed and turned
on my Tunein Radio ~ a free app on my phone ~ so that I could listen to
the first hour of Coast to Coast am, a replay coming out of Idaho on News
Radio 590. George Noury's (the host) guest was Glynis McCants, aka
"The Numbers Lady"who was making predictions using numerology. I
can't say that I believe in numerology, but it's fun to listen to. I didn't hear
a word of it, because I fell asleep. By the way, David and I figured out our
numbers once ~ I am a 3 and he is a 5. 3's are the communicators ~ well no
surprise there ;-) 5's are fun loving people who crave adventure, and that
is David. But as I was saying, I really don't believe in that stuff, well,
maybe just a little bit.
Regarding sleepless nights, I will have to tell you the story about this bear
who sits on the window seat in my office. Years ago I went on a three day
buying trip to Seattle with two other women. I had been on these buying
trips before and it was always fun seeing the new designs in furniture,
linens and china. It was tiring too. The sponsors of these shows were
there to get buyers to commit to lots of new purchases and kept our
schedules filled for long days and nights.
After a full day and dinner, the three of us returned to our suite, hoping
to make it an early night. I crawled into my hotel bed and tossed and turned.
So, I got up, got dressed and went down to the gift shop to buy a book
or magazine to read. I did find a book, but I saw this bear and thought she
was so cute and bought her also. When I got back to the room and
crawled into bed with my book, I took the bear with me too. I ended up
putting the book down, turning out the light and falling asleep with my
arms wrapped around the bear. I slept as soundly as a little girl that
night, so I have always considered her my good luck bear.
It's finally sunny outside today, so I will be spending about an hour in
the garden spreading egg shells around some of my plants that the snails
have been chomping on. I read that egg shells will keep the snails away,
so now that the gully washers have stopped, I am armed and ready to
give those snails the boot!
Then later on, it's 45 full minutes with Denise Austin doing Pilates.
Yoga mat on the floor, a couple of light weights and I'll be working
on my core.
That's what's up with me. What's up with you girlfriends?
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
