Wishcasting Wednesday

Today is Wishcasting Wednesday inspired by Jamie Ridler.

Today's question is what do I wish for my well-being?

It doesn't take much thought to come to the realization that I wish for some peacefulness on a relationship situation I am dealing with. And unfortunately, it is not one I can just walk away from..nor do I want to. Watching your daughter grow up is difficult at best, watching her grow up unhappy is painful at the least.

Today when I spoke with my (wise) grandmother she said...this age is a like mixing a cake, Anita. It is just all crumbles and keeps falling all apart until finally all the moisture gets worked in and everything smooths out. I simply cannot describe to you how much I love this 90 yo woman.

I think what I'm going to need to do is devise some sort of releasing ritual. And if I have to do it every single day in order to release the anger and frustration at how we are being treated and manipulated, this is what I will need to do. I need to get back to seeing my girl's shining beautiful face.

Suggestions welcome.

hello, again

Will that be the title of all my posts? ha!

just trying to work updating here back into my schedule...and one of these days I will be more successful at it.

I'm part of a project this summer called The Happy Book. I've been slow to answer the weekly requests to share what makes me happy--one because May is a tremendously busy time in the garden for me, and two because for the last 8 weeks I've had a migraine every Friday. no rhyme or reason, but definitely not something to be happy about. As such, no bursts of energy.

Have one today, just powering through. (I'm a recalcitrant migraine calendars are all over the charts..and I've tried of these days, it will all make sense. )

So, today what am I happy about? I powered through a couple of items on my to-do list. One of which was a sticky convo with someone. I'm not sure if I made any progress, but I started it.
Two, it is continuing to be beautiful here in central IA. and, three, I'm sooo glad to be home from vacation. (who says that?) I'm just glad to be home and getting rested up.

And, My garden is amazing. even with weeds. and especially without the ones I've been removing.

Ok, moving slow and easy on to the rest of my to-do's.
