Chit Chat Tuesday

I am going to try something a bit different...I started using my Curiosity Experiment Cards and decided to post them on Instagram each Sunday.  I bought the stack of card from The Stitchin Post and they come with a little easel.  Setting it up on my sewing table allows me to see the card regularly during the week and ponder the message.  Each Tuesday I hope to ponder out loud on this blog about any revelations I have discovered.  I didn't expect the first week to produce anything profound but I have discovered that the intention of reading the question each time I am up in The Bee Hive has been revealing.


So this past week the question was "What Am I Resisting?"

Interestingly enough I found out...I was resisting some health issues...resisting emotionally and practically.  I felt since I live a healthy lifestyle it must mean I have no health issues. But, in fact my genetics is my genetics and my age is my age.  Wanting to not be on medication in my Medicare years I started trying to wean off of them...well, no can do...I cannot resist my genetics or my age no matter how healthy my lifestyle is!  With this acceptance a new peace has come over my days...I am most anxious to see what is revealed in week 2 with the new card!

Although we are faced with more rain that I can remember there was a glimpse of Spring in Sisters, Oregon...the deer are growing in numbers and the landscaping job they provide is in full swing...


The frogs in the creek are croaking a cacophony of music and the geese are on their honeymoon.


And...Spring has also brought a new coffee meeting place for the town of Sisters!!!  Fika a wonderful place to meet friends or work remotely...yes they have space for those who work without walls.


Yes, Spring is in the air and what a breath of joy I feel!

  1. So true with the health issues. I have been fighting my age with no respect fo my genetics. I fell in January and have been recouping since. I have never had anything like this in my life and it can be so depressing. I have been through chiropractic treatments and now physical therapy. Just not bouncing back like I thought I would. Those cards sound very encouraging and I do keep a journal, just not sure I want or look back on this time in my life. Your video on .enzo brought me to tears and I know you loved him so much. We had a yorkie for 15 year and I will never forget him. . Love all your blogs and videos. Just take one day at a time.

    1. Oh I hear ya...I fell in September and broke my shoulder and still can't itch my back!!! Aging is not for the faint of heart! Thank you for the support :)

    2. I spent all of last year making the rounds of doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths, pain doctors, and physio therapists. I am almost better but not sure what helped or even how the problem developed. Age is a huge issue that I didn't expect. I'm way older than you are Anna and I wish I had taken notice of the problems before they got so bad. Have a great day.

  2. I can definitely relate. I had a milestone birthday a month ago and it is hard to believe how the years creep up. I hae deinitely not been happy about some of the things involved in aging. think your weekly ponder sounds like a very good idea.

  3. Dear Anna, I am so glad that spring is somewhere, as it has been snowing all day here in Eastern Ontario Canada. We are so looking forward to spring.

  4. Some good thoughts there Anna. And spring is so wonderful - and also so fickle! We just appreciate every day that behaves like we think it should.
