Rainy days and reflexology

Weird how I thought I’d be better today but the rain has brought with it a sense of impending doom that I just can’t shake. Sigh. Anyway here’s this morning’s meditation:

Meditation 116

Each day brings
a blazing furnace

of its own.
You can only

walk through it,
hoping for the promised land

of night.

Roll on home time, eh. Though, dammit, but I have to go shopping before I can get to my promised (home)land, so I’m not looking forward to that. Meanwhile the changes to the parental guidelines document have come back, so I’m hoping I can make some kind of sense of it, but I don’t think it’s going to be soon. Which of course means the personal tutors’ handbook has to snuggle down into its customary position of the back-burner once more. Double sigh. UPDATE – have managed to do the first tranche of changes, hurrah, but it’s a long process and I suspect we’ll need to go through several versions before we get to a final one. We’re getting there, as they say.

Thank goodness for reflexology at lunchtime – I really, really needed it. Without it, I fear the day would be even darker. This afternoon, I struggled on with document changes, plus I began to think about sorting out my stuff for the office move next week. Lordy, how I hate change. I have to get all my general mish-mash of papers and files either thrown away or into crates by the end of Wednesday, and I’m not really confident that will be the case. Still, at least I’ve made a start – sort of.

Anyway, after shopping (which I’m trying not to think about too much right now), at least there’s Ashes to Ashes on to take my mind off my moaning. Ye gods and little fishes, but something has to. Triple sighing here from the shires. Oh, but there's cake for tea, hurrah - chocolate chip too. Suddenly the world seems brighter ...

Today’s nice things:

1. Poetry
2. Reflexology
3. TV
4. Being at home
5. Cake.

Well, it is Tuesday today; but Tuesdays are my own Mondays. Thanks to remind me about the little nice things that get you through the day. My nice things today are yoga and definitely home. I'm thinking of adding the chocolate cake...

Anne Brooke said...

You're so right, Casdok! Though I might make it decaff - I'm wired enough, I fear!!!

Hope your Tuesday isn't as bad as you thought, Vienna - yoga, home and chocolate cake is another perfect mix!

Hugs, both

Sounds like you are having a bad day but hope the cake and TV helps. Forcing myself to miss TV and go to Pilate tonight to heal myself! x

Ah, it always does, Shanta! Hope the Pilates did the trick.
