Just Rannin' Around

"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among things hoped for."

My family was never really huge into Halloween.  However I work with a bunch of people that think Halloween is THE holiday of the year.  I've tried to get more into the spirit of it for them.  I have to say that this year I think that I finally did good. 

I've had several people tell me that I look great with gray hair . . . not an expected compliment, but I will take it nonetheless. 

The office theme this year was super heroes/villians.  I choose Storm from the Xmen.  Spandex was risky but heck, you only live once.  Why not make it as fun as possible!

“Drag your thoughts away from your troubles . . . by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it.”  -Mark Twain

Sometimes I think that I allow responsibility to become too big in my life.  There definitely needs to be a balance that I have yet to master.  However there are times that I will just drop kick responsibility to the curb and play.

I love weekends away . . . especially when they are close to the ocean!

“Winter is nature’s way of saying, ‘Up yours!’”

 You know you laughed!  How could you not?  It is funny in that it is so true sort of way.  I still find myself giggling every time I look up and re-read it.  So now you know that I am very easily entertained. 

It has been dark and dreary all day long outside with non-stop rain.  Not that it is terrible because I love a day or two like this when I can curl up by the fireplace and lose myself in a good book, but today this just seems to be the beginning of Mother Nature holding her middle finger up and calling in the start of her seasonal nastiness.  Let’s just say winter is not my favorite season. 

The only thing that I am looking forward to is down time.  Winter I don’t feel as inclined or as guilty sitting at home reading or watching movies all weekend long because the weather is not conducive to being outside.  I am thinking there will be some serious movie-a-thons in the next proceeding months.  There are quite a few movies and movie series that I have been meaning to re-watch and snow days are always a great excuse.  Anyone is welcome to join.  Or if you prefer a read-a-thon, I will be having plenty of those also.  Book suggestions are needed.

Well I guess it is time to watch for flights into places with year-round sunshine!!
