Working 3 jobs....

Working all the time can be hard. Today was a challenging day. First 2 sessions of caregiving with elders who need assistance then an hour and a half drive one way through 3 counties for an EI session with a toddler. Then an hour and a half drive again to my night job of making pizzas.... I am beat and my 15 hour day isn't over yet. I actually  had 15 minutes before I was due at my EI home so I parked in the shade near a stream. I picked some burdock flowers (one of my favorites) and just listened to the quiet.... Those 15 minutes gave me more perspective than praying, meditating, crying, and pleading have done in a long time. I realize I need to be outside more. I miss it. I used to take my lunch break outside on my yoga mat. I used to hike. I used to hunt wild herbs. I need to return....

Tonight's blend....

What I am diffusing tonight is light and woodsy. It helps me wind down to sleep and just reminds me of time in the forest.

Buck Creek Festival

We didn't stay to see the ducks fall.... But we still had some fun. I met Lyn's boyfriend and she caught a turtle. Ben caught a crayfish and Eliot caught a giant millipeed. There weren't as many people there as in past years....
