Bath Day

Here’s a pic of Lenny and Daisy. They had baths yesterday and feel really good.

Funny, normally I wash them on the back porch, ladies first, and Lenny can see what’s going on and try to avoid the bath. This time, I washed them downstairs in the front and Lenny was jealous Daisy and I were outside and he was alone indoors. When I opened the door he came bounding out excitedly. I wish I could have captured the look on his face when he realized it was bath time!

Both dogs resist a bath Lenny more than Daisy, but live it once it starts and afterwards.

have a great day and don’t forget to take your bath!

In 2, 3. Out, 2, 3, 4.

This is me counting as I breathe when I wake up in the middle of almost every night. Exhale longer than the inhale to promote relaxation.

it’s quite effective if you’re trying to relax or get calm in any situation.

When you find your mind wandering, (and it will) return your focus to your breath. It’s about being in the present, not thinking about anything in the past or future.

Have a wonderful, relaxing day!

Rainy Weekend? Again?

Looks like another rainy weekend..There was a sea swim Saturday that has already been cancelled and I was planning a little get-together at my house that looks like it won’t happen. I didn’t get my painting done last weekend anyway, I maybe can finish that or at least do a little more.

Heres a shot from yesterday afternoona dog walk.

Have a great weekend!

Book: Survivor

Finished the book Survivorl by Chuck Palahniuk.. It’s about this house cleaner, he cleans the same people’s house full time. Endlessly. His name is Tender Branson.The suicide hotline runs an advertisement and makes a typo. The phone number is Tender Branson’s number instead of the suicide hotline number. People start calling Tender Branson and he advises them to kill themselves. Many of them do. When the mistake is sorted out, and the calls stop coming, Tender gets decals printed; “Need help? Call me!”. He puts them in phone booths and near public telephones. He continues to advise the most desperate to commit suicide.

Tender is supposedly the sole survivor of a religious suicide cult. He then becomes a famous religious icon on TV and media.

Like all of the Chuck Palahniuk’s books I have read, Survivor is full of unbelievablly twisted people. It wasn’t pleasant to read, there was no moral to the story. Nobody in the book was happy. I don’t think I learned anything. There was nothing good in this book, but still, for some inexplicable reason, i recommend you read it.. I gave it four stars on Goodreads.

Cloudy here today. Probably will rain. Have a wonderful day!

Pirates Week & a Holiday Weekend

Holiday season is upon us! Monday is a holiday, our first holiday since July I think..

And it’s Pirates Week, I have a costume, not sure I’ll be wearing it tho. I decided I needed a three corner hat to complete my uniform.

We had some rain last night and this morning. I was surprised by the wet ground. It was nice doing my exercise and meditation in the light rain. Hope it doesn’t rain this weekend!
