Today I jumped out of the tornado I've been caught in. That's never happened to me before - I forgot to be happy, I forgot to be thankful, I forgot to be busy, I forgot to pay attention to blogging and working and I really forgot that I'm letting go, I got stuck. I'll tell you later what I'm letting go of.
So I got up today, went for a hike, and now I'm gonna get it together.
A few weeks ago it started, my family and I dropped everything and went to Arizona for a week to be with my Dad - he's got cancer and is hanging on - my uncle says he gets happy when we're there. Next week he's coming here for a visit to the beach -
The Arizona sky -
Here's the wreath I found for $3 thrifting - pretty much sums up me going in circles lately
A great thing happened - my son Tony flew in the 2nd row left - formation over Los Angeles to honor Veteran's Day
Prep for Thanksgiving - lots of peeling going on
Jennifer and I made Thanksgiving Dinner together all day - we had the best time while the guys watched football and ate and played and the neighbors stopped by
Dining Room - we didn't BBQ the turkey, but we left the doors open anyway - just about to set the table - forgot to take photos as we got busier.
My favorite Chandelier - found the bottom part all chippy and old down the beach in a pile, and the top part - it's all mother of pearl squares and it goes up to the ceiling...I think it was part of a floor lamp once
Love the finish and the old flowers so much
Found this old bread loaf baker thing - filled it with garden flowers
Here's where Jen's getting married - Pt. Dume in Malibu
This is where I resumed letting go today - because I've made the choice to focus on happy
Stopped at the Flower Market - keeping it real and simple
I'll see ya tomorrow - thanks for being my friend
