Things to note:
This “Week in Review” came about out of my need to remind myself, at a scary time, of the unexpected positives that have developed from my change in circumstances. Weekly “Things I Have Learned” and/or “Things to Note” become more difficult to capture as I grow more accustomed to my new life.
Whether through knitting a sweater, baking a loaf of bread, writing a poem or painting a picture--the act of creating and nurturing with your own hands bestows an ultimate fulfillment. If it were possible to capture this feeling in a container, it could be mass marketed as a miracle elixir. I can’t bottle it, so I guess I’ll grow tomatoes.
Sometimes I resent “No Trespassing” signs.
Believe it or not, there’s a spray that immediately calms a stressed cat. After sixteen peaceful days, I had to use it. That’s one miracle elixir that does come in a bottle.
