... and I found the perfect spot to do this.
I was out and about ... just me and my "friend" ... and came across this porch.
It looked so inviting ... so peaceful.
I thought "What a great place to just sit and meditate."
It even has the items used for meditation tucked in the corner.
So, let's quietly head onto the porch and grab a chair and sit and meditate on our
Random 5 Friday!
1. I had a much better week. I am coming down from my pity party and ...
well ... I am starting to think about my lessons learned from this lost friendship.
And there are

is the moment to absolutely and utterly walk away."
~ Alysia Harris
2. I had my physical on Wednesday ... my annual "look under the hood".
Physically, I am doing well ... for my age (snort!).
I had a Bone Density Scan and Doc says I have
a very very very mild case of osteoporosis ... nothing to worry about ...
So, I have to stock up on yogurt ... discipline myself to take my calcium pills ...
and sadly I will have to put away my stripper pole.
Can't take a chance of falling off it and breaking a bone.
I did speak to Doc about my state of mind ... and with winter just around the corner
(brrrrrr......shiver me timbers!) I wasn't sure if last season's
sadness was just a fluke or if I really do have SAD.
So, we decided to go forward with medication on a trial basis.
I'm fine with that.
If it works ... yippee!!!
If it doesn't ... well, we'll discuss that if we get there.

3. Isn't October a beautiful month?
Its crispness. Its colors. Its smells. Its sounds.
"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on
and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings as October."
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
4. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Most of us probably know someone who has battled/is battling with this monster.
I had been neglecting getting a yearly mammogram.
The last time I had one was ... ummmm ... about 8 years ago!
But this year I decided to stop being a wimp and git 'er done!
So, get out there and get those ta-tas squished ... it only smarts for a second.
"When life kicks you, let it kick you forward."

5. I need to get my groove back.
I need to start picking up the things that I used to enjoy.
Reading. Photography. Knitting. Crocheting. Crafting.
I need to pull out all of my craft paraphernalia and give myself
a shot in the arm and just craft my little butt off.
Stop stressing. Start crafting.
Yup! Imma gonna do that.
