you have to hand it to those pagans.
they DEFINITELY knew how to throw a party!
and it seems they threw a party about almost anything you could name.
this is the night before
ALL HALLOW’S EVE.
even the name trills off the tongue.
all hallow’s eve.
it conjures up dark and stormy nights . . .
thunder and lightning and black kitties . . .
lonely streets . . .
scary monsters . . .
FREE CANDY ! ! !
as pagan nights go it’s right up there with the best of them.
and now it also usually means the spookier things are the better.
in my old neighborhood where i owned the wee blink bonnie ~ the houses
were as decorated outside for halloween
as they were at christmas time. it’s become very popular to do that.
a separate little marketing ploy for this time of year.
halloween was always a favorite of mine as a child.
lucky for my mother that i never tired of going as a “gypsy.”
just some of her make up and a long skirt and gobs of old costume jewelry.
i was in halloween costume heaven!
you can have your dark and SCARY.
give me dark and COZY. and throw in some rain and thunder !
tonight we have the rain coming. thunderstorms after midnight.
how wonderful is it to lie safe in your bed and listen to thunder?
tonight i’ll be doing just that.
it’s another night of not truly believing how wonderful i feel right now . . .
compared to how i have felt for the past two months !!!!
i even drove myself for the first time yesterday to meet my marine for dinner !
i feel like someone who’s been let out of prison !
the cardiologist said i do not have congestive heart failure.
the pumping action of my heart is strong but very weak on the return.
all good news to me. i don’t care about the weak part.
right now i’m CELEBRATING the wonder of getting WELL !!!
the medicine for the blood clots is tolerable. and saving my life.
i have absolutely no complaints.
my little apartment on this cozy autumn night is glowing.
i thought i would miss the wee blink bonnie.
and yet i have never regretted selling it for a moment. odd to think that.
i did love it there as well !
but i have always lived my life not by ‘planning and plotting and worrying’
but by simply doing what my inner self flashed to me . . .
to be the right thing for me to do at the right time.
as you know . . . the house was on the market for only 6 days.
it sold to the first buyer.
the move was easy and as if it were meant to be.
little did i know that my wren house now would be the place of a major recuperation!
not just the simple surgery. that was not bad at all.
but these ‘complications’ that have been the bane of my existence lately.
it has been so wonderful to have NOTHING to worry or be concerned about except
getting well and strong again.
i have laid here listening to “MY” gardeners making the grounds beautiful! LOL.
i have listened to the wind in the tall trees that are everywhere on “MY” grounds.
i have delighted in the simplicity and ease of the layout of my little tiny home.
so wonderful when simple walking was a major endeavor every day.
how i love this little wren house.
it is just right for me. it was not a mistake. but then i never thought it was.
i appreciate it now even more.
we are even better friends now. it has passed an important test.
now we are in it for the good times to come !!!
i continue to get stronger and better with each new day.
my time is still limited here on the computer.
as a matter of fact the timer has already gone off.
and here i still sit. typing and chatting away. not good.
still the blood clots in the legs. so i will obey for now.
but it feels so good ~ to feel good enough to even sit here a little while!
i just wanted to share!
