my thoughts for today
For the next 24 to 48 hours I am doing a detox.
Everything else will be turned off. I know I was mostly absent over the weekend, which is the way it has been for several weeks, but something happened last night. I’ve been on edge ever since, that is, until I decided that I needed to detox…from everything!
So, what happened? I was sitting here, on the couch, trying to find a song for my story on facebook. My son was downstairs, playing his video game. My boyfriend is spending the week on the Eastern Shore visiting with his son for his (son’s) birthday. Everything was quiet, I had muted the tv (Pandora) so I could concentrate…I heard a growl. It was loud enough to catch my attention…it came from the kitchen area. It didn’t scare me, but made me aware. It felt more like a warning, than a threat.
A few minutes later, my son came upstairs…I asked him if he had just come upstairs, he said yeah and asked why? I told him what I had heard…he says he’s been hearing things too. The night before, he heard a whomp, whomp or something like that. So, a few minutes later we walked around the house with a flashlight and a long wooden pole. We didn’t hear or see anything. We did lock the doors, just incase.
I may sound crazy, but this is really happening! With the dreams, experiences I’ve had – especially the last two years – when something like that happens, I pay attention. I’ve heard bells ringing when there was no wind to make a bell ring – in fact, on one occasion all the windows/doors were shut as it was winter, heard my name called out both while I am awake and sleeping. It’s always been a male, lately I know it’s my dad, but before I’m not really sure. Why is this happening? I’m pretty sure I know why…but I can’t explain it. Not yet, anyway.
Over the weekend, I really didn’t do much…
On Friday, I did some digging and dumped some rock…did I mention this already? I can’t remember… anyway, I did something to my lower back – which made me take it easy on Saturday and Sunday. I usually rest on Sunday anyway, but yesterday I had a really good excuse to do nothing!
The five bags of rock I bought last week are now being used, and I need to get more…but it will have to wait as I am not spending any money this week. I will dig, do some garden/yardwork…but no spending.
Once the mint and fern start to die off, I will be cutting it back (maybe?), as well as pulling some of the clover/wildflowers up. I really don’t bother with it too much during the summer. It gives food to the critters, which is more important to me than having a neatly trimmed lawn. I just read somewhere, over the weekend, that there are companies paying to turn lawns into meadows. Not sure where, but that is awesome! My front yard/garden looks like I’m feeding bees and such.
Ever been pooped on by a caterpillar?
yes, that’s caterpillar poop on my hand! I’ve also got dry skin…ugg! Oh well, that happens when you play in the dirt.
So, over the next 24 to 48 hours I will be here, but not here…feel free to leave comments if you feel like it. We’ll see how the detox situation goes…I’m sure it will help me immensely! Since yesterday, I’ve lost 24 facebook friends, not sure why, but I have a pretty good idea. Not that it really matters, I usually don’t pay attention to that (on facebook or twitter)…but something happened yesterday. Which is part of the reason why I think I need to do a detox. That is also a story for another day…
The growl I heard, was a warning for me…I need to take care of whatever it was trying to warn me against. I need to pray… keep calm and push any negative influence away. Hopefully, with little outside influence I will be able to.
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
