Wait. What? I’m already on week 8 in my little journaling expedition? This past week was crazy busy. I’m a day late in writing in you, but it’s because I’ve been super busy and I’ve been having a little too much fun as well. Remember how I was feeling like Yoda last week? Well, I said farewell to one of my clients and I’m confident she’ll be just fine. My other client leaves in two days and we are tying up loose ends with things she has to do. I’m very confident also with her and know she’ll blossom and grow into an exceptional woman.
I also took a peek at two condos with a realtor last week. It was exciting and fun, but I have a few others I want to look at. There is this complex that I had forgotten I had looked at a few years ago. This community appears so surreal and has a vibe of Pleasantville. I would even go as far as saying it looks like a movie set because everything looks a little too perfect. The sidewalks look like a maze, snaking in and out of doors and surrounded by meticulous gardens and courts. I’ve never seen a place quite like this and it has fascinated me like no other. There are two townhouses in that complex, but I’m going to see if they can drop their prices because I really like the two places a lot. We shall see. Owning a townhouse is scary, but it’s a new phase I have to enter sooner or later. Things seem to be dropping into my lap lately (some a bit sooner than expected, but I’m not complaining) and I’m just going with the flow. When things are meant to be, everything falls into place. But I always leave room for sudden changes.
Spent the weekend with mom. I was weeding in her yard and remembered how much I actually like weeding. I see a lot of things in my life as metaphors. Nothing like pulling things out of your life one by one to see the potential for new growth or to replace a barren life with exciting things. Not that my life is unexciting, but it’s great to add fun things to it now and then. I love gardening and to be able to do something she can’t do such as kneeling and pulling out weeds, I didn’t mind at all. Later we watched a movie, which seems to be a tradition she is starting every Sunday. We watched “Annie” for the
zillionth 15th time, well for me, she hasn’t seen it that many times. “Annie” gave me the love for Broadway, Radio City Hall shows and black and white movies. Ever since I was a child and seeing Annie’s reaction entering Radio City Hall, I always wanted to experience that same feeling. I did eventually go to Radio City Hall and it was a dream come true. My heart was beating and I felt like a little girl being a place I had dreamed of as a child. My other childhood dream from seeing the movie “Annie” is to see a Christmas show in Radio City Hall with the Rockettes. To sit in the audience and see the show would be a dream come true once again.

I’m trying my hand in black and white photography just for fun. Both of these pictures were taken on the other side of the rocky pier facing the ocean. The photo with the boat makes me smile because I picture it running from a horrible and enormous sea monster. Thanks Pacific Rim, now I have monsters on my mind. Would be fun if someone photoshopped it and added a Godzilla to the picture, what fun!
