Quiet.

A recent picture of the mountains and veld on a rainy day.

I’m not doing too well at this blogging thing lately.

I have the best of intentions, but you know what they say about that …

I’ve been keeping myself busy with so much ‘stuff’, I can’t even tell or show you what I’ve done. Loads of washing, cooking, baking rusks for a change, ‘busy’ on the laptop, walking the dog, cleaning the guesthouses, just…stuff.

Also trying to write some short stories, and thoroughly frustrating myself in the process. Ugh…

What I have enjoyed over the last while, was the little trips my SO and I have taken here and there. Stopping randomly so I can take a picture or two, or to let Daisy out of the car to sniffle around a bit. Coming home and immediately taking off my ‘outside’ clothes and jumping into my ‘inside’ clothes, or PJ’s as some people would call it. Anybody else that have spent a lot of time in their sweats or PJ’s lately?

The guesthouses are eerily quiet suddenly, after a flurry of activity. Not quite what I envisaged when I changed it to be two units instead of one! It is scary – it cost me a lot of money that I have to recoup somehow. I am trying hard to keep my faith, because I really believed it was the right thing to do, but some days it is a bit of a challenge. 😖

What I am saying in a roundabout way – things are quiet around here. Very much so. Quiet as far as business goes, quiet as far as socializing goes. Very quiet.

Things do tend to quieten down as winter descends on us, so it is to be expected, but somehow the quiet is different this year. Maybe I’m imagining it. Maybe it is the quiet before the storm. Who knows?

Destiny.

I often wonder about the way things are playing out in my life…

You know – why did this happen? How am I going to deal with that? Why don’t my plans work out? What am I doing wrong? What should I do next?

I always try and go back to my faith to keep me going. I know not everybody believes the same things I do, and I am not going to try and convert you or convince you of my viewpoint. But to me it is something I need in my life, and it works for me. If not for that, I might have run into the sea a long time ago! Or hit somebody with a baseball bat. Or I might have decided to go and live in a cave.

Sometimes it feels as if everything is working against me, to make life as difficult as possible. I don’t always know how to deal with that. I get emotional often, sometimes I talk about it, often I pray for guidance. I do allow myself a day to feel and emote, and then I have to carry on. Just because things aren’t going my way, does not mean the end of life – life carries on, and so should I.

Fortunately today is not one of the bad (emotional, sad) days, but I am wondering about the reason for certain important things being denied me (by outside influences, like Covid and the world’s hysteria about it) – it doesn’t make sense to me. I have to believe there is a reason for it, but for the life of me, I cannot imagine what those reasons can be…

Today is gardening day, so I will connect with Mother Earth, and hopefully that will soothe my ruffled feathers.

Whatever it is that you believe in (if not in God) – karma, serendipity, luck, bad luck, coincidence – I hope light shines on you today, and that you have a good one!! 😀
