Soup Stories

Cliff-the-dog This week has been a bit bonkers - and I don't think I'm alone in making that statement. On Monday I had about 3 or 4 different people say to me - "What is wrong with this day?!" I think it's safe to say, it was one of "those days" in the universe... at least that's what it seemed like to me.

But then Mike went and texted me yesterday and told me he had made not one but two vats of soup: Roasted Red Pepper and Ginger Carrot. So I was all like. It's not so bad. I've got someone making me soup - and it ain't gonna get no better then that my friends!

You guys there's frost on my patio table this morning. Also it was the first morning that I couldn't go outside with Cliffy in my bare feet. Immediately I found myself thinking longingly of the early summer mornings. Fall has crept in. This weekend is Thanksgiving and I'm seriously caught in a juxtaposition of just wanting to get through the hectic-ness of the Fall, but also life would you please slow down a little already?

Eileen from Leaner on the Lake started a fun little Friday tradition called #inspiremefriday. And I know it's not Friday but considering the week I've had, this has to be the one pinned by @Pinkoclock spoke to me most clearly and I think it deserves a bit of a highlight here:


I like quotes that I have to read a few times before they really resonate. That's what this one did.

Letting go has to be one of the hardest lessons to learn in life. Just going with the flow - intuition, instinct. Don't you think? I always seem to resist my gut - and then all of a sudden after whispering for a good length of time it just yells at me "HAVEN'T YOU BEEN HEARING WHAT I"VE BEEN SAYING? Just believe in where I'm trying to take you."

Do you always listen to your gut?

What sort of things in your life do you find you cling to? Is it easy for you to let go?

Oh and also, a picture of Cliff. Because that's what I do.
