Guess I’m trying to make up missing last Friday by composing this entry Thursday evening. Now if I can remember to post it tomorrow . . .
Tonight I’m celebrating the gift of Eagle making a fly-by directly over me this afternoon.
This afternoon I visited my hair stylist for a cut. Ahhh . . . that feels better! At every appointment with her I celebrate the fact that it is a relaxing experience, she and I have a comfortable relationship ongoing now for over three years, and I can emerge from the shop lookin’ good. Catherine is a good-hearted and talented young woman, coming here to me to cut my hair during the interval between my cancer surgeries two years ago . . . and not charging me for the visit. She works from a salon a 30-minute drive from here through the countryside now, having moved there from a salon about five minutes from here earlier this year. No surprise that I followed her when she transferred.
Although I marvel at and celebrate the man who is my husband, I’ll mention tonight that I am fortunate to be married to someone who understands, supports and encourages my idea of a solo retreat weekend on my own. I’m considering taking a weekend to myself in the near future and am looking at renting a wee cottage or cabin not far from here. I’m looking at Lancaster or Gettysburg, PA and in the Poconos. I envision a weekend of writing, meditating and napping. Throughout my life, I have been an independent gal, taking road trips on my own, tent camping solo and so forth. We are together essentially 24/7 and it has been several years since I have ventured out on my own. Perhaps it’s time to do so again, just to stay in practice! At any rate, I am celebrating having a supportive partner.
What are you celebrating today?
Thanks for stopping by!
