Friday night The Hubs and I had a hot double-date with my best friend and his girlfriend! We planned it for a month, and bought our tickets online two weeks ago, and good thing because we were too broke to buy them that night. We scrounged up gas money, and confirmed with the sitter, who is a dear family friend and I groom her dogs in exchange for baby sitting. We packed a cooler, and some apple butter and home made bread and zucchini bread to snack on and headed out for a cheap but awesome night out.
The Indianapolis Museum of Art shows movies in the amphitheater every Friday of the summer. I went with this couple and another couple to see Rocky Horror last year, although this was the Hubs first time seeing a movie there.
We got there about 45 minutes before our friends and snagged a spot in the center back. Good for watching movies, but right in the blazing, evening sun! We also looked longingly at the full 3 course buffets other moviegoers had brought. I hope next time we come, I have a busier week in the salon so we can do it up! When Juan and Erin arrived, we spent a great hour chatting and drinking the two Sun Kings we had in our date budget.
All in all, a great night with awesome friends watching one of my top 10 favorite movies. Very thankful, since I needed a kid free evening!! We are all going camping next week, wish us luck
The Pook, Gloominus Doom, and the Payment all inverted.
You need to work on this, right now. Because your problem is your perspective, and you are letting it pull you under. Yes, you give too much, do too much, are too many things to too many people, but that makes it your responsibility to keep some back for yourself. If you are waiting for someone to notice you are killing yourself to do all you do, you will find only frustration. Give to others because it gives you meaning. Give to yourself because it gives you joy. Do what you must, but always keep enough of yourself back to stay centered at the core, instead of scraping away at yourself until you are paper thin and hoping someone else builds you back up. Ask for help when you need it, instead of hoping someone will come when you finally break down. Love yourself at least as much as you love those important to you.
I'll give it a try if you will...

I have never canned anything, and have only even seen it done once. We planted cucumbers with the idea of beginning my canning career with pickles. Saturday night when we got back from Minnetrista (photos coming soon but my laptop is in for service and for once I used my camera not my phone) we walked back to the garden for the first time in about two weeks to find maybe 15 pounds of cucumbers, a few yellow squash, a zucchini, and carrots.
We brought everything in as it got dark, and Sunday evening I dove into my canning maiden voyage. I now have 3 jars of frigde pickles and 5 that I processed. All of the five sealed correctly, and I'm feeling not so intimitated and mystified byhe whole canning process.
Hopefully they turn out tasty, because it does not appear my cucumber vines are done producing. My loved ones may be getting jars of pickles with their crocheted gifts for Yule this year! Now I'm off to make zucchini bread.

Honesty, G. Hobyah, The Journeyman
You need to be brutally honest with yourself this week. Dig deep to find clarity, although you may not like the view without the filter of your ego to soften the edges. You will need this starkness of vision, however for the road ahead. The journey can have hazards, but you have to decide which are real and call for caution, and which are your own negative self talk. A journey is an apprenticeship, and is sometimes more important than the destination.
