Nothing is as simple as one perceives đŸ˜Š

Married Folks Humor….

So my hubby went to work Man-D overtime today, and I signed on for a home project (singular) 

He just called saying “they tried to keep me, but I fought a good fight and won!” (meaning he’d escaped)

The conversation quickly turned to what I was doing. So, how far did you get on your project today?

Well…what I will tell the court is what I initially thought would be a simple and rewarding project (sanding our 10×24 deck) quickly turned into a very very tedious & back breaking project. Admittedly, after about ten minutes of sanding, I began thinking…this is one of those “hire out” projects. ROTFL

As was typical of me, I had seen only the “A & C” (the beginning and end) of the project without really considering the “B” aspect before leaping forward into the project (that B is always outside my realm of thought).

Did he gloat…nope, he looked at the chairs I had painted and said, I see you wanted to put your “accomplished” stamp on something today!

Hindsight: a woman should marry a man who makes her laugh, keeps her smiling, never views her as a workhorse and understands that her happiness is paramount to all things first and foremost.

As usual, I saw the “A & C” of the project, however I never really framed the “B” in the project (that is always outside my realm of thought).

Sanctuary

20120721-052731.jpg

It’s 0345 and I’ve been awake since 0215. I’ve decided to climb out of the warmth of my bed and come sit on my deck for awhile. I’m hoping after writing for a spell the sandman will show up and lure me back to a peaceful sleep.

One of my small joys in life is sitting on my deck. It matters not if the sun is shinning or it’s raining cats and dogs, I love sitting out here and just getting lost in the thought of not thinking too much. I try to come out here every morning for 5-20 minutes (spring/summer only) and just sit. This is time that I’ve dedicated to talking with God, my Grand and most recently, my aunt.

It’s funny, but I’ve always referred to this space as my sanctuary; my place of peace and understanding. Oddly, anyone who HS known me for ten minutes can tell you, I’m not the outdoors type, but this is different.

My backyard is comfortable, I’ve worked hard to create an oasis for myself that I sometimes share with others. A few years after purchasing this house. I (yes, I) created a water feature back here, so sometimes I just sit and listen to the water…I’m a fire sign who loves water sounds and sights. LOL

During the summer, I pitch a tent back here on the deck and rough it! LOL My husband would disagree that I’ve ever roughed anything in my life.

My backyard is small roughly 600 sq ft with various tree types and a couple of lilac bushes, which I planted many years ago. As I sit here listening to the sound of the running water and the rain drops, I look out across the yard. The trees stand tall in the background huddled close together as if sharing a secret that only they should know here in this yard. My senses are charmed by the faint aroma of the lilac bushes mixed with the rain and I am mesmerized at the sky a mix of indigo and midnight blues, dancing across the early morning sky

In a word, it’s beautiful and I feel truly blessed to have a space, a refuge that is all mine if and when I so desire.

I want my damned glass slipper!

20120613-174841.jpg I hate being one of those EOD clock watching people. 😦 For now, I just keep my head low and my mouth shut! Lord knows my true gift is “telling folks what I really think!” LOL All I can say is; this job felt like an uncomfortable pair of shoes before it ever started.

*How is that possible?

20120613-173939.jpg

Right now…I’m not sure if I’m a size 5 foot trying to wear a 15 shoe or a size 15 shoe trying to accommodate a size 5 foot?? **Either way….AWKWARD!!!

In the words of another princess “I WANT MY DAMNED GLASS SLIPPER!”

The sad truth.

20120204-162407.jpg

Maybe not my best look...

The other day, I woke early (the first issue) played on FB and read blogs (the second issue) for 2.5 hours before climbing out of bed to ready for my monthly doctor visit.

When I emerged from the bath I jumped into my clothing…gym clothes, quickly determined I had ample time to make the drive from the south side to the east side of town.

It wasn’t until I had slid behind the steering wheel ready to go that I noted the position of the fuel gauge reading…empty! It was at that moment in which, I begin to berate myself. How had I forgotten to inform my husband that my fuel tank was nearly empty when I parked it the night before. It is my sole responsibility to update him that he needs to take my car and fill it up.

Who do I want to be… when I growup?

anything, but wet!

I want to be the person who walks into the room and brings warmth, love and laughter. I envision my being the arms that make children feel safe, nurtured and loved. I should be the most rational cupcake, without too much over the top frosting.

My hope is that I can be the one who laughs with and is okay with being laughed at…because laughter is certainly the best medicine for falls, breaks and moments of craziness.

 There is nothing simple about complex!

It’s just my beginning…

Hello world, welcome to my new WordPress blog.

Certainly you didn’t expect the first posting to be fabulous…did you? Well, think of this first blog as the informational link between you, me and the blog. LOL

You may wonder how I came to choose the title of my blog, well I wanted something that wouldn’t shoebox me in, but that would allow and create a forum for free flow of thoughts and information from every direction.

So, I hope you will return again, soon and often to smile and laugh with me.  

R&W
