What's not to love?

I'm in a good mood. I should be in a terrible mood, what with the continuing hot, humid, drizzly DC weather and the fact that tomorrow Saturn will move into Scorpio. I should be cranky, funky and irritable as hell. 

Go figure.

Part of my good mood has to do with very nice dreams last night - happy dreams that did not include even one glimpse of Hitler or my ex husband - dead or alive. Sweet. Also I made a rather huge mistake reconciling my bank statement. As it turns out, I have a LOT more money than I thought I did. I checked and rechecked, and even had the people at the bank confirm for me that all checks have been cashed, all bank machine situations are accounted for - and all deposits, too. This means I will be investing in fall clothing. I might even at last buy myself the much longed for suit. (I have longed for a suit because if they fit, they look good on everyone and are perfect dress up outfits for old ladies.)

I started doing the Course in Miracles exercises. I can't say I'm learning anything I didn't already know, but it's powerful anyway. It is very well thought out, extremely effective, pointing out the obvious, helping people remember the essentials. And it isn't a money making scheme. All you need is one book that contains simple exercises for every day, a text that discusses the basically Christian philosophy (I mean authentic, original, hippie style Christianity. It's adaptable to many --most?-- belief systems.) There's also a section on teaching it, though I won't get to that section for awhile. It's really something, very cool.

Today my plans include doing some drawing, making an apple pie and receiving massage. What a great day!

So you see, even though summer will not relinquish its choke hold Washington DC, life is good. I am grateful. Shalom.

Have a wonderful day! I'm happy that you are happy. We have nice fall-like weather here and I plan to do another 2.5 mile walk today. Yesterday's walk was terrific.

Sounds like a good day. I'm continuing to stay above the political fray.

If I didn't walk, I'm sure I would shrivel up and die. Enjoy your walk, Cheryl.

Ellen, you and me both!

You certainly have some majesty there in Washington D.C - majesty is sadly lacking in little old Adelaide, but we are homey and our Spring weather is doing us proud. Your photos of Washington's sights are wonderful. Happy cooking/walking/relaxing!
