A Good Question......

So, I'm in The Journey To the Golden Fleece.  It's an interesting journey....it asks questions, and makes me delve into my past.  I'm not thrilled with it because my past, my story, is full of negative and I don't like to live in the past at all.

So now, there is a question posed:  If you were to treat yourself with all the respect and love you have the capacity to give, what would that be like?

Holy Crap!  Really?  I can't even imagine.  I imagine myself as a really loving person.  Although, I've not always ever felt like it was returned by anyone......

I cannot even fathom what it would be like to love myself, respect myself, or build myself up, like I do for others in my life.  What a freaking concept.  Wow.......

So I guess instead of whipping through this module of the Journey, I'm going to have to think on that for a bit......

I'm SO far behind in this Journey also.  I'm supposed to be near finished, and instead, I'm only on Mod 4.  That's because it's been difficult to delve into this Journey for me.  As I said, I don't like much of what has happened in my past.  I don't like to BE my story.  I want to BE what I want to be in the future....not that it's happening.  I feel like every day flies by, yet, I'm stagnating where I am.

So that this isn't a totally crappy, dull, boring post, I'm going to post some pics I took this past weekend.

I was doing stuff around the house.  My desk faces the windows that face the front of our property.  I saw about 8 horse trailers going by on the road......which can only mean one thing.......the November Hunt is on!  It hasn't happened in a couple of years.  I was a bit excited because I love my camera and I love photography so I was hoping for some good shots.

Next thing I know, there was a hunter out in front of the property.  Mind you, they are supposed to be out back.   In a previous year, the fox and some dogs, had gone wayward, and instead of being out back, and staying there, they ran out front. So I think this person was out front to keep an eye on things.

Then, the hunters showed up out back.  Lots of hunting dogs.  They came into our back pastures.  Our horses were NOT happy.  They were on alert the rest of the day!

This was the hunt master.  He's blowing his horn!  

Then there were the riders that followed.  Here are a few:



It was a perfect weather day.  It was about 60 degrees.  Sunny.  Very little breeze.  Just a beautiful day overall, so I took some other shots.
This is Gabbi.  She's a Maltese that we keep cut short.  She was looking through the porch railing. I  was standing on the side of the house on another small porch.  I LOVE this photo.
And then there's the random wood shot. 

I love the way the sun and shadows play on the wood and leaves.  We've had a few trees cut down recently, almost all Oak, and a few Gum trees.  It's really opened up the yard a lot, and I love that.  Of course, it's difficult now to appreciate since it's getting so dark, and the sun doesn't rise in the sky like it does in summer.  It's okay, because I love Fall. 

That's about it from me for now. I'm off to feed the dogs their dinner, and get our dinner ready.  Some nights, I just don't want to cook.  If I were by myself, I would be having ice cream for dinner....

Take care.

You are not alone in this. Many of us look back and are not happy with the things that took place in our lives....dumb decisions, as well as things we had no control over. But yesterday IS gone. And today is a new chance, every day, to get it right, or at least better.
I am intrigued by this "journey" you are on.....
