Make it up that mountain, You’re gonna stand up big and tall

See, I’m trying to get back into the groove.  Between trying to get the house ready to go on the market (eep!) and trying to spend time catching up on reading (because I love books and words), I’ve kept myself entertained this weekend.

Today I am trusting that my slightly crazy and completely logical plan for getting the house on the market and sold by a month from now will work. Oh, and that a 45+ day closing will be fine with whomever falls in love with this place.

Today I am grateful for a Mama who is undoubtedly doing the heavy lifting with getting the house ready to go to market.  We’ve taken on a divide in conquer with me doing aggressive decluttering (very little is safe around here at the moment unless it has a name and is a sentient being) and her doing beautification. I say it routinely that I couldn’t do life without her ongoing support, and I mean that.

Today I am inspired by this TED talk on soundscapes and the inspiration they provide. Many of you know that I don’t run outdoors with headphones- I mean, I started running when music wasn’t portable anyway- and while there are the safety considerations, it’s primarily about connecting with the world around me. When I head out for my run this afternoon, I’ll be listening a bit more intentionally than usual. (HT: Karen Walrond of Chookooloonks; this link was part of the “Advent of Light” practice I’m reveling in right now).


Now listening: LeeAnn Womack “All the trouble”- The Lonely, The Lonesome, and the Gone” may be my favorite album of 2017.  If you’re interested, that is.
