I feel like I usually have to work during the big snowstorms so I was thrilled to be home Friday to just hunker down and enjoy a snow day, although most of the snow came after we were asleep. What a surprise to wake up and find 16-20 inches!
The sun shines in on the pleasing Valentine's garland my sister sent. She-of-the-care-packages-cushioned-with-dried-rose-petals. She did not disappoint; this year's Valentine package was beautiful, filled with candy hearts and packed with white and red rose petals.
I had forgotten the holiday was coming,
February came so quick!
Rob bought me a Jasmine plant at Trader Joes. I adore Jasmine. I drink the tea every morning and find the scent perfect. I can't wait until it blooms. I think the whole house will smell divine and hopfully I can keep this plant alive. Rob had forgotten I have slowly killed a couple of these over the 23 years we've been together, but maybe this is a different variety?
We gave it a try watching it and had a great time. The kids were very drawn in and not too scared (We talked them through the confusing/scary parts) I wanted to see it because sometimes I feel like Richard Dryfuss making the mashed potato hill as I try and follow my heart's desire and intuition towards the life I want to live. It is an urge and a pull but sometimes it doesn't make sense at the time. I have to trust there is a bigger picture guiding me even though I can't see it all now. I am working hard toward my Aromatherapy certification and my Emotrance energy healing certification hoping it will be beneficial to me and others, but sometimes I can feel like I'm running alot on faith.
Don't worry, though, not faith in aliens.
But, instead, in some divine beneficent power that infuses everything around us.
Nothing I can make with mashed potatoes, yet.
