I hardly know where to start with this post.
I am now certified as having satisfactorily completed my continuing education project. That involved the commitment of a couple of grand to pay for the class in Neuromuscular Reprogramming that I just finished at the beginning of May. It also required me to travel to California for a weekend each month for four months. It was grueling, and gave me a new respect for the business Road Warriors who travel all the time. Very few of my flights occurred without delays of some sort.
The class was well worth my time. Neuromuscular Reprogramming is a technique of body work that achieves absolutely amazing results. I am exultant and my clients are very pleased. One of the side effects has been a huge increase in my business. There isn’t a day of the week that I don’t have at least four massages scheduled. Pretty good for the bottom line.
The side effect of that is that Jim has decided to retire from the work force as of June 28. He won’t be able to start collecting Social Security until September, but that simply does not matter due to the increase in my income. He will thoroughly enjoy being home for the summer and able to do his own projects.
One of those projects will be installing our new solar panels, which arrived this week. I can hardly wait for them to be on line and watch the electric bill shrink to nothing while our carbon footprint diminishes as well.
The flower gardens are quite beautiful right now. This is a view of the path in the Hosta Dell. Don’t look too closely or you might notice all the weeds that took the opportunity to ensconce themselves while I was running back and forth to California.
Of course, the vegetable garden has been a big project. We’ve been eating wonderful salads out of it for over a month, and it recently presented us with over 6 pounds of snow peas, which we blanched this morning and have in the freezer. I also picked a pile of spinach, which is already in the freezer.
There is a sink full of broccoli raab that needs to be dealt with. I will get around to that this afternoon, after I plant the veronica and the pink iris that one of my friends brought be yesterday.
So by now I’m sure you are wondering why I would title this “Labyrinth News.”
Simply this. Back in November a most delightful woman named Twylla Alexander paid me and my labyrinth a visit. She blogged about it here. Her vision was to visit a personal labyrinth constructed by a woman in each of the fifty states. I think she only has two states left to visit! That is quite the journey, and during the course of it she has connected the owners of all the labyrinths she visited via email.
Now we are all agog over the near completion of her project, and hoping that we will be able to have a little cyber party to celebrate her accomplishment. Well, and ours, of course! And so, I make this post and I am hoping that it is possible for folks to upload pictures into the comments section. I invite someone to attempt to do this. If it works, then I will make a dedicated “Labyrinth Party Post” for us all to use.
Watch this space….
