Downtown church

I went walking at lunchtime yesterday and passed St. George orthodox church, which happened to be open at the time. It’s a beautiful building, very ornate with stunning stained glass windows. I felt like I was back at catholic church. I don’t know much about the orthodox church, but from what I’ve seen, they seem pretty similar in dogma.
I only walked in and looked for a
bit, as I needed to run to the bank. There were some homeless people hanging around, which I thought was odd, but then again, it’s a church and they have a homeless ministry, so it made sense.
If it’s open every lunchtime, I may stop for a longer visit and see what kind of feel it has. I am drawn to theology, from an educational point of view. Religion, in all its many facets, has always fascinated me. The rules, regulations, histories, myths, and urban legends that go along with religions are fascinating to me. What I could do with that degree, I’m not sure, but it would be fun to study.

Monday morning

For the past couple weeks I have been up early to take the dogs to our neighborhood park to let them run and play a bit before I go to work. Nevermind that they have the run of the house and backyard while I am gone, but this gives them new smells and stuff different to do.
Well, this morning was so nice and cool and breezy, and the puppies were sleepy on the bed, and we were all so comfy, I decided to rest in bed with them.

Have a restful day.

Surprisingly, the fish aren’t scared

Gray, overcast, and breezy

I really shouldn’t complain, and I’m not really, I just wish it would actually rain instead of just being cloudy. My garden could really use the free water.
I’ve got some cabbage that’s coming up along with some beets. I am extremely excited about it, as my radishes are pitiful and I got nowhere with bell peppers this year. I am hoping for a better crop of veggies before it gets too hot to garden and the beds go dormant for the summer.
Odd isn’t it? No garden in the summer here, just in the winter.

Radish from earlier this year.

You’ll hear me whine about this alot, but I suffer through our summers to have winters like this.

quote of the day

I always thought Einstein was a pretty cool guy, he was so very smart and had a funny personality. I’m trying to sort through the clutter myself to find some simplicity. It’s getting better, but could be even more so. The niece and nephew are staying with us for a couple of days, so we put them to work helping out. They like to, plus they get to play with the puppies, which keeps everyone preoccupied so no one is getting into trouble doing something they shouldn’t be doing, you know what I mean?

I hope you find your simplicity, harmony, and opportunity today. I’m ready for mine.

Love this steamy window app. Here’s my beloved at the dog park recently. Cool huh?

Quote of the day

“There is no one correct way to the Divine. We are all on the same path, just different directions and paces.”

I am the quote queen at my day job; I write funny, quirky, silly, thoughtful, and sometimes downright stupid sayings on the fridge marker board. This one I made up just before the Christmas holiday and left it up for almost 2 weeks before I erased it. Being a religious holiday, I thought it important for everyone to see it.

(we have several different religions all working together under the same roof)

Since taking yoga, and working with my boss, I have learned a lot about other religions and realized that there really is no one religion that is correct, or right, or better than the other one.

Maybe if more people realized that, all this fighting would stop. It’s ridiculous really.

Monday motivation

What motivates?

What motivates you?

Is it your dreams?

Your family?

Your pets? (yes, pets. Mine motivate me to start anew every day, and to enjoy simple things.)

Your friends?

Or just the desire to start something new?

At this time of year, it’s fairly common to think about new stuff, goals, aspirations, and what to do and where to go next. I’ve written a whole list if things to do, and I am going to write them on my chalkboard door as a reminder.

My thought for this year is “no fear”; about anything.

How about you?
