EMMA  has created a list of WEEKWORD participants over at her blog, THE GIFT SHED.

From a review of the participants in this week's postings, it seems many are experiencing the same "extreme change(s) in emotion" which is the "result of experiencing strong feelings (sorrow, fear, pity, or even laughter)."

I, too am feeling like I need something to "shake up my routine" ~ not sure what that is??
feeling directionless??
For the next few weeks, my schedule is a bit different - I'm watching LOLA this weekend... she's throwing her ball up in the air, trying to capture my attention!! will post pics later!

On Monday morning I'm headed to Sacramento to read grants... definitely different!

And I'm looking forward to some "restorative time" in July... one of the benefits of being employed in education!!!

We'll head to Big Bear Lake for some time to read, nap, scrapbook, blog and hopefully - HIKE!

BUT, in the meantime, when I'm feeling this way, I turn to NATURE... 

tidying the flowerbeds
capturing some photos
sitting on the patio

ALL restorative!! and NO-COST!!

over to EMMA'S @ THE GIFT SHED to see the list of  
WEEKWORD participants.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            


  1. Hi,

    That first picture is just senational! Raleigh would have loved the wall.(-: I am busy making lasagne for tomorrow when all will be coming over for dinner. Fabulous weather here ~beautiful. Have a super week.

  2. Reading grants? Definately different! I think the world is holding its breath at the moment and is in catharsis and that is possibly what many people sense and feel that kind of stuck way, as if we are waiting for things to happen?

  3. Oops, somehow WeekWord just passed me this week... oh well, I can't do everything I guess. I tend turning to nature as well... did a wonderful hike on Friday with my friend, it was plain gorgeous and I was so tired afterwards, but in a good way. I hope your week will be a good one!
