Just Checking In With My Monthly Update

Yes once again I have been absent for another long period of time... Not letting anyone know my whereabouts or what may be or not be going on with me. As I have said in the past it has been a "different" year. I would have to say it has been much about change and self awareness as well as awareness of those around me and the enviromnent itself. I like to think I am good with change but in all honesty are any of us... Yes I know it is good for you and it keeps one on their toes but still...

I do believe although I can not say I truly enjoyed it all, that it has made me aware that possibly I was taking my easy life a bit for granted. Not truly realizing the ease that I may have had it at.... I would take it all back if it would change things but I know that is now how a life lesson works and so I will move ahead and work through the situations and "adventures" that have come my way.

It has been a brutally hot summer thus far. Really it started before summer even officially came. First it was the storms that when they did erupt were destructive and deadly. Then after we were hit with that the heat came. Nine days straight of 100 plus temps. Yesterday it was 110 and felt like 113. It was hard to even go outside. We went ahead and had Winston sheered this summer. Yes I know he is a lab and a white one at that but he was taking the heat so hard I began to worry about him. He is just getting over his stubble growth and I think has gotten used to his shorter cut. I can tell a vast improvement in the way he has been.

You all know my procrastination... yea got to love it... I finally went to the dr. a couple weeks ago. Had the much needed women things done. I hate to say it but it had been since 2006. Yes I know that is 5 years. First visit went great. All results came back fine just a stern finger wagging telling me to not wait so long next time. This morning I received a call on the second visit. We all know that when they call it is not necessarily ok. My mamogram results suggest I need additional viewings is what I was advised. So next week I return to see if this adventure will end then or continue a bit longer. Fingers crossed.

I have had some blessings this year. I have been abundantly blessed with many visits with my grandkids. Not only to their home but they came up to Oklahoma a couple weeks ago which was so much fun. There is nothing like a house full of grandkids to keep ones spirits up. I always cherish the memories made with them, as they always leave me with just a bit more love in my heart.

Here is hoping that all are having a wonderful fun filled summer and that the heat is not taking too much of a toll on you. And any of my friends who may be or have been in the paths of the waters that have covered so much this year, my thoughts and prayers are with you as well. Take care and be safe.

Hi Janie. So nice to see this post. It has been a very warm Spring and Summer. I don't want to complain too much as so many have had flooding and devastation. We have been fortunate.
Sending a hug for your visit next week. All will be well.

It HAS been a very odd year and it sounds like you're having to go within and replenish yourself which is the healthy thing to do. You are ever the mysterious one, Oh Scorpio goddess ; ) Sending you lots of blessings and healing light for your second check up. I went through the same thing and it was scary but fortunately it didn't get any more serious.

And the heat, I would hate, hate, hate it that much.
It's always good to hear from you and know we're not going to go away.

Greetings Janie...Most times when the doc calls you back for more imaging it is because the first ones didn't come out right..meaning fuzzy or blurry...I have had that happen to me so we shall pray for a wonderful outcome!!!

The heat has been awful here too...today 106 and the Heat Warnings are up. I will embrace Autumn more than ever this year!

Sounds like you are doing the same as I and tapping into Self-Awareness for your own good health. Bravo! :) Good for you! Even tho at times it is hard there are many times when the joy overflows from lessons learned.

Your Grands are gorgeous and growing fast! Such adorable smiles! :) Mine are in Texas until the 7th on vacation...rode the train for the first time and I know they are having the time of their lives, lol. I can't wait to hear all the stories!

Do take care and keep us posted about the mammo...I'm happy you got in to take care of your physical health...that is very important as you well know! I'm with the Doc and wagging my finger at you, lol!

Sending Love, Peace, and Bright Blessings Your Way! Happy 4th!
