I’m visiting my parents in Wisconsin this week. We took a fall foliage drive today. Even though many leaves had fallen already, we saw many beautiful sites. I saw plenty of green triangles, including this one in their neighbor’s yard as viewed from their sun room.
I asked my mom to teach me to crochet this week. What I’ve learned is if you make a mistake, it’s better to rip out your work prior to the mistake and redo it. No sense perpetuating a problem.
Yes. I’m still on the train. We waited just east of Dallas for four hours for a broken freight train to get fixed and clear the tracks. We were supposed to be in St. Louis by eight this morning, but we aren’t due to reach it now for another two hours.
My only concern with the schedule was making my rental car connection. This morning, I called and changed the reservation to pick it up this evening at O’Hare. I’ll catch a cab from Union Station. I called my parents to let them know the new ETA. They’re flexible. Always have been when it mattered. They get that life happens.
The bright side? This area of Missouri we’re traveling through now is usually done in darkness, so we’re getting to see the lovely fall colors. And I get more time on the train. What’s not to like about that? I love riding the train. I’m so at peace.
I experienced much angst about the rental connection earlier this week when I learned about construction on the Illinois track. I needn’t have worried. I figured I’d wind up at the airport, and I should have made that change the first time, then I wouldn’t have had to worry about it. Additionally, I have friends who live in Chicago who offered to let me spend the night with them if I needed to wait until tomorrow to get the car. The bonus for that was that I’d get to see their new house. Alas, it looks like I won’t have to take them up on their offer, but I achieved much peace from knowing that was an option. I could just as easily have caught a motel for the evening, too.
I tried envisioning an on-time arrival, and I got a great on-time departure from my Central Texas location. Sometimes, other things are meant to be, and we adjust.
Waiting for the Week 5 lesson materials to be posted. I’d hoped to find them when I woke up this morning (and got phone service), but, alas, that is not to be either. I’m thinking the Alliance is shaking things up again to keep us from getting too comfortable. More Semper Gumby. Not a problem.
This is a powerful week, and I’m encountering a mixture of excitement and old Blueprint resistance. I recognize it for what it is, and I will prevail. The excitement is like sunlight through an overhead canopy of leaves dappling the … Continue reading →
I’m in San Antonio this week. We discontinued our internet service at this house a couple of years ago and access the Internet via a mobile connection, primarily using my phone and tablet. Connecting the laptop chews through data. We … Continue reading →
This week’s Master Keys touch one area I’m in the course to find a solution to. In the Master Key – Part Three, the second and last paragraph of the intro area cover this. Eliminate, therefore, any possible tendency to … Continue reading →
Mark J has been talking about linkages for the last couple of weeks. I’ve started to pick up on some of those linkages. Last week, we began working with our 3×5 index cards. We began adding colored symbols with each line … Continue reading →
Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends, especially my MKMMA Guide, Paul K and his family. No related posts.
I had a little time in the motel room yesterday afternoon and evening. I used that time to play with the blog settings and reconfigure it. Did you know WordPress removed the Blogroll list feature a few versions ago? I … Continue reading →
I was standing at the Backyard Buddy (car lift) display at the Hershey car show this week. Imagine my surprise when I began telling a man standing and staring at the lift how much we liked ours and how sturdy … Continue reading →
The impact of the course so far has been surprising. While an extraordinary number of things that would ordinarily go smoothly have gone…not smoothly (and I confess I’ve not been as positive about this as I would have preferred), I’ve … Continue reading →
