It's my Birthday today and Father's Day..

Make your Mark journal entry.... Pages 2 and
Page 3... 7 more to go before I start to ship it out on it's journey.....
Yes it's my birthday today and I'm a whole 49 and full of major body changes and all that good stuff that goes along with...lets say I'm blessed right now. I gave myself the morning in the woods yesterday and was graces with seeing Aldo the retired Barber...He is such a sweet gentle man. I know I was going to seek a little personal inner direction which I received and blessed with seeing Aldo..he is always smiling..you know how that feels when you see this person time and time again and there just something special about them. After the walk I had to do some food shopping and when I came home, put it all away, I then ate lunch and took a nap...Now I know yesterday wasn't my birthday but I was doing some self care..and it sure felt good... I was then woken by my youngest daughter to go to Target... So I bought myself a new coffeepot... A Bunn...We have had a Bunn since we were together, the husband and I, kind of a family thing but the one we had was a piece of sh*t...hard to spend the money on such an expensive kitchen appliance but I did... so shoot me...So this morning I made coffee in it and it's so nice not to have dribbles of coffee all over the counter.. and it pours so nice... what a gift this morning. Now I had wanted to spend some time in the Studio and start my next Cradle board but I got sidetracked on a my Journal... as you can see there are two page entries I did, I would like to get about 10 done before I start passing it a long to friends in far off places. I have a hard time doing them cause of the time I put into them..but letting it just happen is the best way to approach them no set plan...Allowing the intuitive parts to take over is tough when the left side is wanting to have some control. Well you can see I was just playing around.. I got a good base going for the spread and then bought my box of supplies down and watched a movie with the husband...Book of Eli that was good again though about the end of the planet as we know it with the green lushness all around..scares me to think that could happen..but it was a good movie. What will the plans be today ? not sure just letting it happen..Oh I did receive a new pair of hoop earring from my Maddie... Our kitty Sophie likes to take things so I've lost my one of my hoops...now I'm wearing too again. (smiles) Thanks my dear.
One of the things I wanted to say about the journaling is it's also tough to change the mind thoughts as of it's a place to let it out and it's not about "if I'm good enough" or that I make a masterpiece the journal is about putting it down, bring it out and letting it be what it is...and nothing more or nothing less. I seem to look at it always a goal or to accomplishes and with out beating myself up I'm looking at the journaling as a way to fill the book so my accomplishment is to fill it all up not howgood... again I'm amazed at what a different perspective can do for a soul.. Change how the mind things and you've changed the directions your headed.
