got back home at 445 pm.....bags unpacked, everything put away, returned a couple of phone calls, the dogs are fed and napping and I just finished dinner.....ahhhhhhhh!

I need to do some recorder practice, as I haven't done so for the past 4 days...ack!

Had a nice retreat up in the mountains, hiking, crisp temps, blue skies, lots of nice people and good meetings. I participated in the entertainment part as I was in 3 skits with other people. Another first for me!

I like walking in the woods, I didn't have to worry about hoodlum's hanging out, I didn't see another person on the trails and personally, this helps me get in touch with my Higher Power....the spiritual side of things, cool breezes, birdies chirping, squirrels dashing about, geese and swans in the lake, and now falling leaves.....beautiful! and no sounds of traffic. Love it! Wish I had a house of there to get away from the loud noises and crime in the city.....ahh, that's what retreats are for: to get away from tv, radios, computers, cellphones and all the daily distractions of life and just focus on what's important in life right now.

I love my dogs and cats and worry about them but I sure am glad to get away from them for awhile to focus on myself/recovery. I can let my life get so screwed up with busyness and distorted thinking, I lose focus on what's important. Do y'all do that too?

I tell you one thing, I turned on the tv and little bit ago to listen to the news while I was eating my dinner and listened to political ads.....geezus dog almighty! Those things drive me wild......I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message.....oh no!!!!!!!!! Calgon take me away(c 2828).

glad to be back at the RE backyard fence....<waving>

Hope y'all had an enjoyable weekend.

They are calling for rain here tomorrow and that means leaves will be dropping off the trees in a major way. ack! I hate naked trees!
