You know yesterday how I said I was feeling on top of things in preparation for my Mum’s birthday?
Today the Universe woke up, rubbed her hands together and said MWA HA HA.
I was left frazzled and frustrated in the morning when after picking up my ‘fixed’ laptop from the computer shop, I came home to find IT WAS NOT FIXED.
Back there I went, to lose a good 90 minutes of the morning in bringing it to some kind of workability.
I had to buy beans. There is only one type of bean I ever buy. But it was nearly lunchtime, so instead of having a quick cap as I had planned, I resorted to deeply inhaling the bag once it was open.
Ahhh. Caffeine magic.
And this evening Hubbie decided to not only put his new whipper snipper together, but to also put it to use around the yard… at the ripe hour of post 6pm.
We sat down to eat dinner at almost 8. Face palm.
You know what it is that settled me and reminded me of my insignificant and tiny place in this Universe?
The Peninsula sunset.
Earlier, and then later. I love how the pink and orange hues in the first photo shone behind the clouds, hinting at something living, breathing, taking up residency up there in the sky…
It calmed and centred me, and that’s what I needed in this topsy-turvy day.
