Simply trust the process!

Trust is such a hard thing for me!  Years of different kinds of traumas and abuse, and bullying can leave people with a lack of trust. I think the worst is when we lose trust in ourselves. Of course, that's a hard one to regain as well.  Today, my Medical Ride agency didn't send my ride to my appointment. For the 5th time. Well twice we had to cancel for the weather and three times they didn't show up. So, of course, I have lost some faith that they will do what they say they will. I had to file a formal grievance through my insurance company, which took hours on the phone. Then I had to drive myself to the appointment because I can't put it off again! Ozzie rode with me, he started having sesiures again has been extra clingy. So after the appointment, we went for a walk and then out to lunch. I tried something new by ordering a side of meatballs for Ozzie and a side of Tuna with spinach at Subway. I had never done that before. It was good and inexpensive as well. Then

March Winds signals Spring!

Hey all! I am getting ready for my Technology Free Saturday again. It starts in a few minutes - I have been doing this off and on for years, beginning at sunset on Friday evening and ending sunset on Saturday. I like having a day when I don't answer the phone. Often Ozzie and I read a real book and get outside for a long leisurely walk. Ozzie and I are just sharing an afternoon snack of unsweetened carob chips and an Amazing Grass flavored water. We walked the driveway today - I try to do that every other day. Sometimes the weather gets in the way but I get right back as soon as it clears up.  Our most recent weather is on a gradual curve upwards in temperature! Finally, this pattern actually marks the switch into Spring here in Witch Well! This past week we had more snow, then crazy March winds, and today 50F sunshine! Yeah sunshine! Of course, with the snow melt, comes the puddles and mud that makes driving on dirt roads nearly impossible. I have learned, over the past 5 or 6 yea

2019 Spring N.E. AZ GTG!

Spring is on it's way! It's time to start getting ready for the Spring GTG! GTG or Get ToGether for Friends, Nomadic, Full time RV, Vandwelling, RTR community and neighbors (Witch Well,  St John's & local) Community that is like family is important. Come share, build friendships and celebrate Spring with us. April 17 through 26 in Witch Well, Arizona.  Onsite camping and community dinner at sunset on the 19th. This year's community dinner menu will be Roast lamb, grilled asparagus (if available) and homemade unleavened bread. I will prepare a variety of foods to try and accommodate different diets. Wine and simple adult beverages will be served at this meal - please respect and honor that I do not allow drunkenness in my home or on my property. The community dinner is my personal tradition and celebration of NTBMO/Seder and Passover. We will ask a blessing over the meal. You DO NOT need to believe like me to enjoy this meal or time of togetherness, if you are called

Simple March madness!

Hi there! Here we are in another month - time flies when we are having fun - er or just dealing with the changing weather as Spring is trying to simply show up. Gotta love the sunshine and 60F temperatures as well as blustery winds.  Ozzie and I are doing well. I am deeply entrenched in my therapy and weight loss program. I might share some of what I have learned at some point. I recently finished reading "Boundaries" by Henry Cloud. I recommend it. Dr. Cloud gives good examples and explanations of how we develop different styles of boundary setting or not setting boundaries. He also gives some good ideas for dealing with people in newer ways that may improve relationships, or relationships to perhaps avoid.  I ordered a PCsforPeople mifi box hoping to have service again. There is no signal in my area. So it is being returned.  That's it for today - I was typing this while waiting on an appointment. Keep it simple! Lesa
