Ch – Ch – Changes

Sometimes I think that we know what we want before we know we want it. I have finally caught up with myself and know what I want… but I think I might be too afraid to get it. Timing is everything I suppose.  

Time may change me
But I can’t trace time


So Many Books, So Little Time


I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.
– Harold Kushner

On my bookshelf right now is:

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
On The Road by Jack Kerouac
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell



I only had one New Years resolution this year — to get out of bed when my alarm goes off. No snoozing, no second alarm, just get up. Start the day. 

I just like sleeping. It is days like this that I wish I was a cat. Those creatures sleep for like 23 hours of the day! No alarms, no responsibilities (except being cute), just sleeping. House cats are living the dream. 


Wish List

I want a Pendleton blanket, that is all.Image

A Lighted Window At Dusk


Riverside – Agnes Obel

Sometimes it hits me that things are not the same as they were. Sometimes it is a good realization, sometimes not so much. Like playing Wii, there is a character that looks like a friend who is not around anymore. The last time I played Wii was with him. Kinda crazy how things can change in such a short amount of time. I miss my friend.


You know that feeling of coming home? I can’t think of a better feeling.


A Little Inspiration

Holistic health care is where it’s at. I went to see a wellness chiropractor today, and HOLY. No major adjustments, no cracking or snapping or shoving pieces of my spine around. Just simple, light touch in specific areas that affect how your nerves respond. How cool is that?! So cool. Just 10 minutes of relaxing and being ‘adjusted’ has made my body actually feel different. Right now the different feeling is actually uncomfortable, but I am just amazed that this magic made any change at all. If you are in the Kamloops area, check out Inspire Chiropractic. Those people are wonderful and so skilled.

I knew that my previous post’s close was from somewhere. Dr. Seuss gets stuck in my brain sometimes without me even knowing it.
