Me on Monday - September 21st

Linking in & sending a heartfelt wave this Monday to Sian at http://fromhighinthesky.blogspot.ca/ along with the other Me(s) on Monday.



River's Edge Park - Eramosa River
First thank you to so many of you for the encouraging words & thoughts from my last Monday blues / Over the last week &weekend it was busy busy which included  Mr Man & I enjoying the Masterpiece series Arthur & George / finding the latest series of Scott & Bailey / getting teary at the Great British Bake Off send off, poor Lucy (series 4) / oh so very tired, sleep is evading me / back in treatment with chiropractor (my boss) for my locked up neck & shoulder ; this is an injury from my days of 3 day eventing, I hit jump #4 with my back as my horse turned from the jump at the last moment , whiplash (totally my fault) /  family member left for a year in China, he will be teaching English both as  the spoken & written; 5 years ago he was in South Korea for same type of contract / further discussions about riding with Mr Man / celebrating a work colleague’s birthday, alas no cake  / started to clean out patio flower pots / scored a deal on some red with white frosting letters for December Daily / meeting a friend for breakfast, totally out of our normal get together  - spontaneity in practice / making plans for Thanksgiving  / F1 Race watching / chipmunk stuck in garage overnight, ate through the bag of peanuts, greedy little creature / lurking in the last moments of evening light on the patio, not giving in easily to earlier and earlier sunsets / seeing lots of trees transitioning in colour / lots of long walks, I find it rather meditative to walk, sort things out in my mind / in prep for the new furnace install, lots & lots of moving stuff out of the tradespeople's way / a commitment that there will be a massive purge, donating, clear out happening for the rest of the week ahead /  Thanks Monday for that new start!

  1. I hope your pain eases soon ..it's hard to go with disrupted sleep for very long without it affecting your mood. But it sounds as if you are ready to grasp this new week and see what you can get out of it! Hope it delivers something lovely.

    1. With a few more adjustments on my back I will be right as rain. Oh maybe not a good expression as I understand it is quite wet in all parts of Britain right now ... sending sunny dry thoughts for a good week ahead for you :)

    1. Thanks Louise. Life is like that, up down and sometimes around the bend :). I like the feeling of decluttering and of course there are lists to be made - a perfect week ahead - hope you have a good week.

    1. The back and neck are definitely moving in the right direction of wellness. Not sure if the chipmunks keep the mice away but with Autumn's chilly nights setting in, time will time. Hope you have a great mouse free week.

  4. I'm with you, I need to work things out in my head first and a walk always helps. Hope you're feeling better x

    1. I like walking and I walk briskly so usually I go along as Mr Man cannot keep up with my pace.

  5. So sorry to read about your back injury, and glad you have a good chiropractor to help ... I like walking too for the same reasons - somehow the meditative aspect just seems to suit this tine of year.

    1. Thanks Alexa, thankfully my body is responding quickly. I can solve all my own problems along with the world's in a nice long walk :)

  6. Sad to see the official end of summer on the doorstep. But the earth keeps turning; tomorrow is another day. Feeling a little wistful hearing of people starting adventures in China...

    1. There are many in my family with the wandering gene! He just posted photos on his F/B page - so many rules about social media in China. The Autumn is such a beautiful time of year, Mother Nature is kind before she is cruel with winter! Yes the world, thankfully, keeps turning.
