I’m trying to live in the Now. Not past, not future, just now. You know, like a dog. It’s difficult.

It’s also pretty tough to come up with blog fodder when all the living in Now is mostly in my head. But… here’s what’s happening in my life.

Started: Jana DeLeon’s Miss Fortune series. Currently on book 13: Swamp Spook.

Saying: Christ the King Novena, thanks to Pray More Novenas dot com.

Accomplished: Finally finished painting and cleaning the living/dining room! Now on to the hall.

Recommend: Sr. Mary Martha’s Pause for Prayer on Facebook live every morning. One of the Daughters of St. Paul, she is also singing with their choir.

Looking forward to: Advent and my new Memento Mori Advent companion.

Now: Listening to my sister in law bitch.

Next: Yard cleanup.

Earlier this week: My view from the sofa…

  1. What an adorable beautiful photo of those two great adorable dogs of yours; and a wonderful shot with such a comfy composition; and those dogs are saying it so loud and clear!
    God bless all of you there!

  2. As much as I also try to live in the present, the past informs the present and it’s good to keep a mindful eye on it in case you feel the urge to fall back into old ways or repeat some foolishness.

    Maybe that’s just me. Maybe I’m just prone to foolishness and regressive behavior. Regardless, I keep an eye on the past but continue walking in the here and now.

    If you need a hand to hold on your journey, I’m here.

      1. I read this once: the past should be a springboard, not a hammock.

        I’ve tried my best to remember that any time I feel the urge to wallow or if I spend too much time thinking about things I wish I’d done differently. Shoulda coulda woulda are great for song lyrics, but can be deadly — or at least, harmful — for living in the present.

        Love you, too, Pam! You’re an angel.

        1. I’ve been depressed since my dad passed in October. You know what I’m going through. Just thought Christmas would help… but I’ll come out of it. ❀
