Hello Again!

August 6, 2009 at 8:42 pm (Memories, Musings...)

I realized today that I have neglected my blog for nearly the past month.  There is absolutely no good reason for the neglect…  except that I’m practicing just “being.”

We’ve established that my OCD can rule my life.  Lists are the thread running through the fabric of my life.  But, I’m trying to change old habits.  It isn’t easy, but I’m learning to let things just sit and rest.

However, to catch you up on the last month of my life, I’m going to make a list 🙂

  1.  Made Pagach (Slovak potato bread) for the first time ever.
  2. Sang a solo at Emmanuel’s Traditional Service ~~ the first time in 6 years that I’ve sung a solo (I had to purchase an accompaniment CD, all I had were cassettes) 🙂
  3. Took a painting seminar — a rooster-fruit trunk.  I am not finished with it, but have been diligently working on it.  It’s beautiful!
  4. Lost 2 pounds (Yay!)
  5. Used my elliptical for 20 out of 30 days (Yay!)
  6. Discovered some really cool verses in Hebrews 12 — texted my darling son to read them also!
  7. Went to hear The Clarks in Somerset with Danny O, Doug and Kimmy.  The Clarks were fabulous!  I downloaded their song, “Cigarette” on my Ipod.
  8. Went to hear The Johnstown Rockers with Danny O, Dave and Shelly.  They were good this time (the last time they weren’t).
  9. Went to see the Pittsburgh Pirates with Danny O, Dave and Shelly — THEY WON!
  10. Went to see a NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway — it was rained out.  Spent 3 hours getting out of the parking lot.  The next time we are going to do some serious tailgating and get a motel so we don’t have to spend 7 hours on the road after a race.  (Thanks, Kayla for the tickets!)
  11. Planned the music for my darling Grammy’s funeral — it was an honor.  She was 92 years old and LOVED Jesus.  I know I will see her again someday!

Whew!!  No wonder I’m so tired!  I guess I need to work a little harder at just “being!”
