It's been awhile since I have updated... life gets in the way of blogging at times! I am off work today - I used a couple of holiday days for Friday and today, because Monday was a holiday here. So, it's been good to get a break from work.
I have plans to clean the house today- we'll see how that goes. Nothing out of the ordinary has been happening... just the usual. I am still working on trying to get my ebay and spending addiction under control... and looking at why I do what I do. Not fun, but necessary.
I am really enjoying Eckart Tolle's book The New Earth. Powerful stuff. I have heard a lot of the same ideas before in different formats - mainly from the reading I did in the monastery from spiritual classics- Thomas Merton comes to mind, as does Anthony De Mello, and James Findlay... it's funny how I keep gravitating towards writers who seem to say what I need to hear at the moment. Divine Providence no doubt.
Still trudging along with the Have More Fun class... I was kinda bogged down for a bit because a lot of the stuff was just beyond me or my skills or whatever, but I am enjoying the Photo Album Scrapbook stuff. Let's face it- not having kids kinda removes a huge source of material.
The first two are assignments from the class- the dog one had specific numbers of items to include and there are over 105 brads on that one. The last one is the first photo album one - I did one with all my scrap pictures - actually not all but some. It is cute and a good way to put those all together for review.
