I cannot believe it is Saturday already, where did that week go?
Ok it is only ten minutes past midnight but it is still Saturday.
That means it is two weeks to our holiday.
This time in two weeks we will be at a hotel at Manchester airport.
Not that I am excited or anything...
September has come to an end and my 30 day plan has run it's course.
How have I done?
Well not too badly I think.
I have been eating healthy home cooked food.
In fact I am really enjoying cooking and having family around for meals.
I have been reading most nights and enjoying the pleasure of snuggling down with a good book.
Meditation in the usual sense of the word as been sparse, but I have found that cooking and reading have been nurturing my self worth and self esteem.
I am spending more time with family and friends which is wonderful.
Have been doing some creative arty stuff, just for me and that is a pleasure I have rediscovered. Walking has been sporadic but I'm getting there. I need to build up a pace over the the next two weeks, ready for walking on holiday. So all together I feel September was a success in many ways. The weather was rubbish, but there again most of the year has been pretty awful weather wise.
So October is upon us and the tree's are beginning their gorgeous costume change and hopefully we will get some lovely sunny days to enjoy the kaleidoscopic display of colours nature dazzled us with this time of year.
Colors burst in wild explosions
Fiery, flaming shades of fall
All in accord with my pounding heart
Behold the autumn-weaver
In bronze and yellow dying
Colors unfold into dreams
In hordes of a thousand and one
Unwearing their masks to the last notes of summer
Their flutes and horns in nightly swarming
Colors burst within
Spare me those unending fires
Bestowed upon the flaming shades of fall.
