Woke up in a haze. Still trying to wrap my head around what just happened. So many emotions. I feel like I’m going through the 5 stages of grief & loss. I’m not quite sure I’ll ever get to the final step: acceptance.
How so many people can support someone so full of hate is truly terrifying. I’m ashamed, embarrassed & disgusted with what is happening. Despite all of this, I still have hope. I have to. We have to. We have to continue to fight for the rights of so many who have been, and will continue to be treated so unfairly. We also have to continue to fight for this planet. So much is at stake.
I’m trying my best to stay positive. I’m trying to believe that good will overcome evil and we will move forward, despite all that has happened, to a place of love and acceptance.

Hopefully, we will also rise.

The weather has been so amazing here lately. It hasn’t really even begun to feel like winter is around the corner. Today it was nearly 80 degrees. I was sure to get a couple good walks in with the pups (and Grease Monkey) before and after work.
I’ve been consistently going to hot yoga classes for the last month or so and I feel so good. I’ve noticed a major shift in my mood on the days I go to class. I have to get up at 4:30 in the morning so I can make it on time. This is astounding to me as I AM NOT usually a morning person. The fact that I’ve been sacrificing my precious sleep shows me I’m doing something I love.
Speaking of things I love, I started getting the woodstove ready last weekend. It’s not winter I love so much as it is sitting by the fire. I switched the plant shelf for the log holder and stacked some wood Nathan had already split up. Pete had other plans…
After a few (thousand) rounds of fetch and some wood stacking we called it a day and opted for a more relaxing evening.
Here’s to more 80 degree November days.
