1. Thor really got my attention this morning.

0 miles from me. My world lit up. I saw the lightning and was rattled by the BOOM!

2. From Rob Brezsny:
Author Grant Morrison observes that our heads are “big enough to contain every god and devil there ever was. Big enough to hold the weight of oceans and the turning stars. Whole universes fit in there!” That’s why it’s so unfortunate, he says, if we fill up our “magical cabinet” with “little broken things, sad trinkets that we play with over and over.”

I exhort you to dispose of as many of those sad trinkets and little broken things as you can. Make lots of room to hold expansive visions and marvelous dreams and wondrous possibilities. It’s time to think bigger and feel wilder.

3. I’m sad to report that I have fallen under the scrutiny of medical professionals. That’s rarely a good place to be.

Jackson Clinic and Urgent Care

It’s a lot of todo to adjust my BP medicine. There is no immediate danger. I am safe and well, my cardiologist is just diligent. He is a great guy and sure knows how to ruin a beautiful day. 😂😂😂😂. Update: My BP issue is resolved and I’m back on track. Happy Dancing 🕺🏽

1. The Barefoot Belle survived 2020. I got fresh yard eggs and picked this morning strawberries. I need to return before I leave the area.

2. I like Jeff Bridges’ website. I just learned about it this month. I also like the movie The Great Lebowski. I’m such a big fan I became a Dudeist Priest.

3. Intermittent fasting has been around a long time but it’s new to me. I’m trying out the 16:8 plan (16 fasting hours cycled by 8 non-fasting hours. I’m not sure if it’s a keeper. I’ll keep it up a month or so and then decide.

Inspiration: Every morning when I wake my mind begins telling stories. I can let it flit about like a fly; landing on good stuff or nasty stuff or I can direct the story to uplifting, creative, and inspiring thoughts and actions. Each morning I can select the story I tell myself. Today I started my story with a long walk. I listened to Alan Watts. And practiced “Enjoy the view. There is nothing else to do”. What story will you pick?

I truly appreciate all of you. Thank you so much for your visits, likes, and comments. You make my life better. I hope I bring a smile to your heart.

Today’s projects were both food related: boudin and slow cooker banana bread.

I boiled the Boudin for 7 minutes.
Then I fried it to crisp up the skin. Delicious!
All the while banana bread was cooking in the slow cooker.
Tasty

The odd colors are the result of the Hipstamatic X filter I am using for the #the100DaysProject.

I appreciate each of you. Thank you for your visits, likes, and comments. Stay safe out there in the CCE.

1. The weed eater sounds rather soothing as does the traffic noise in the distance. People having fun across the street. Laughter. I just like to chill sometimes.

2. Over a year on the CCE. WOWIE ZOWIE I’m vaccinated!

3. Fun times in the Ice-o-lation. I’ve saved a lot of money. I am working on my shadows. It is an excellent time of growth.

4. I may need knee surgery. I will find out in May. That opens up a huge logics problem in my silly world.

In addition to the knee thing, I fell down some steps. I was bruised and stiff but seem to be ok now.

I truly appreciate each of you. Thank you so much for your visits, likes, and comments. You make my life better.

The ostrich seems to hang out in this area of the park. This is the bird that tried to take my phone. We have a different relationship now.
He was talking up a storm.
This llama is checking me out. “You have a food bucket in there?”
Spring is wonderful at Alabama Safari Park. There are many babies.

On with the song challenge.

There was a golden time in my life. I was young, bold and not afraid. Naive comes to mind. This song is one of many that expresses the feel of those years.

I appreciate each of you. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. Means a lot. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE.

FavoriteSongChallenge Day 4

The way I understand this challenge is to post a song I love and why I love it once a day for xx number of days.
Day 4 of the #FavoriteSongChallenge to #spreadmusicnothate:

As many song have, this one changed the direction of my life. I first heard it in language lab. We could listen to French or Spanish or Alice. hahaha I chose Alice. I’m happy I did. My Southern Baptist programmed brain had to reevaluate its beliefs.

I appreciate each of you. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. Means a lot. Stay safe out there in the CCE.
