I woke up really thirsty, so right off the bat I drank some water. I have noticed that I am not drinking as much water as I was, since I have been eating again. I was hungry too, but I didn't eat breakfast until I was done most of my routine. I felt like dancing a little bit, and thought I might add a little bit of exercise to my daily schedule, so I added to my phone for later in the day. I haven't exercised in a while, so I know that I have to slowly build up to it.
I spend time with my kitties, feed them, made my lunch and dinner and ate my meager breakfast.
I went to work, trying to enjoy my way as I went. I talked to God about the conversation I had with Jason the night before. I told Him that I wasn't going to give him any quarter to my heart, and I was protecting it fiercely until God told me that it was okay to give a little bit. I decided that I would start reading the Boundaries book that my Christian friend, B. gave me last year. I think I am ready mentally and emotionally to read and apply what is in it. By the time I got to work, I decided that I would add that to my read time: along with my pleasure reading (the book "Sarah") and my Bible reading. So Now, I have pleasure reading, Bible reading and improvement reading. LOL
Today was Poetry reading Day so I read a little bit of Psalms as I didn't really plan it out well enough to have some Shakespeare ready to read and such. It will have to do, as it still is a poem. LOL
I ate my lunch at the office, and then I went to the library to check up on when the Creator's guild art show was on Sunday, I might go to after church on Sunday. I have a lot of my calendar that it seems that I am always busy now. It is so different then it was just 6 months ago. It is such a big, but a very wonderful change, as I am enjoy life more. I thought I would give you a seek peak on what I am doing over the next couple days.

Now, I might add things or things might be chucked a bit later, depending on what I am doing, especially with Christy, since I tend to stay over at her house late. If I don't finish something like plant flowers, I just work it in the next day if possible. So you can see how very busy I have been. All next week, I will be trying to go to the Revival, except on Wednesday when I will go to my own church service.
The office was a bit busy at the end of the day, so I was glad that it was 5:00 p.m. when it got there. I took my time and ate my lunch while listening to the Christian talk show on my radio. I started thinking about what I could do after work, since I had nothing planned but cleaning my kitchen, exercising a little bit, and reading my Bible. Since it was so nice out, I decided to stop by Nichols bakery and buy some cheap day old bread, so I could feed the ducks at Quarry park. I thought I would use half of it and then give the other half to Christy as she would use it up. I went to Quarry park, which is really a nice place to go. Amazingly, I drove pass the church that will hold the Revival on Sunday. At least now, I know where it is. LOL I also noticed that some storm clouds were coming in and that I probably wouldn't have a lot of time feeding the ducks. I got there and saw that there was a sign for fishing, that gave me the idea to buy a fishing pole and a license sometime this year so I can do that. I would really enjoy doing that. I wished I still have the fishing pole that R. got me for Christmas. It was a retractable one, which was really convenient as I could stick it in my Knapsack. I will have to get another one of those. Lo and behold, there were no duck (the white ones) in the park but the Canadian geese and they were not interested in coming my way to eat a little bit of bread. I was walking along the shore, trying to see a frog or something and enjoying the sights, when I saw tiny little fish so I thought I would feed them little crumbs. I was doing them, and they were swimming away, but some bigger fish, about 5 or 6 inches long came up. I had about 8 of them I was feeding. I fed them one slice of bread, but it went along way, as I had to make sure it was very small pieces. After that I decided to stop, as the sky was really getting darker. I thought maybe I would go to the little pond at McKinney park, and feed the ducks there some day. I got in my car just in time, as just 5 minutes later it was pouring. Just before it came, I looked out in the distance, and I could see the sheets of water coming this way. It was really weird to see. I even saw a bolt of lightening too.
I took my time going home and sometimes the rain was just terrible, and other times it was a bit more gentle. It was coming is spurts. As I drove along, I realized how beautiful it would be. The parking lots were shiny with water, which gave everything a beautiful sheen to it. It made me remember a poem that I wrote when I was 7 year old about rain dancing in the streets like little men. I have always seen rain as a happy thing, as the rain drop falls and hits the ground, it always reminds me of little men kicking their legs up dancing. I have always enjoyed watching it rain. And this day was no different other then, I was really happy in my life to enjoy it.
When I got home, I had decided to earlier to clean my car, but since it was raining good, I held it off until later or even tomorrow. I stood outside for a little bit, because the sun was out, and I was determined to find a rainbow, because of the sun shining and it still rain, I knew I would find one. I did! And it made me remember the promise that God gave Noah after that flood. It helped me remember ALL God's promises that are in the Bible. I walked in the house a very happy person. I think for the first time since the guy moved out over 4 months ago. Happier then I have been in over a year. Thank you God! Once in the house, I hooked up my MP3 player to my stereo and cleaned a little of my living, when I should have been cleaning my kitchen as it was the day for it. Oh well, I could do that tomorrow as well. I try to really clean/straighten up one room a day and spend 15 or 30 minutes picking up everyday, so that the weekends are not tied up cleaning, as it was for me growing up. I really hated cleaning on the weekends, so I am trying to re-establish everyday cleaning during the week. Now that I have even more energy to do, I am going for it. LOL I started dancing and then exercising a little bit. I spent about 13 minutes shadow boxing and other stretching exercises, until I felt a little tired. My legs didn't like it much, so that is why I didn't push myself for 30 minutes. I will try that out for a couple days and see how it felts and then I will move toward a 30 minute session.
After that I called my mother, to use some of my minutes up on my phone and well as tell her what has been happening to me. We talked for a good hour and it was a very pleasant conversation. I told what I had been doing, and we just have a storm, and afterwards I saw a rainbow! She was happy that I am doing so much better, and that I am healing well over this bad relationship. She told me that she was worried on how much damage that the guy caused me and how long it would take me to bounce back. She said that I was doing much better then she figured that I would. I told her that God and going back to church plus keeping myself busy was a major part of it. She even asked me how her little tree was doing. I told her that it is fine and I am going to be planting it this weekend. She laughed that the lady gave me another one for her. LOL. When I got off of the phone with her, I was hungry so I had a little bit to eat and feeling really tired. I texted Jason at 7:35 p.m. and told him that I would be able to talk to him tonight as I was really tired and probably wouldn't make it to 9:00 p.m. He understood and said that he would get a hold of me tomorrow. I told him that was okay, and after that I went to take a long shower. I love the radio in my bathroom now.
I spend the rest of my awaking hours, read a bit. I read the first chapter of my "Boundaries" book and decided that I would really read a chapter a day and apply it. I also read a chapter of "Loving God" by Chuck Colson. I bought the book last Friday at Brad's books store. I was surprised to come across it, as it was a book suggested by Pastor Mark when he did his last Wednesday Church service. I will try to read that was well. I spend a little of time reading my Bible too. I only read one full page, but I was really getting tired and I was fight with Mekong for "looky" room so I could read, so I decided that one whole page was good enough for now. So I was settled in my blankets with Mekong cradling my neck while I was listening to "Ratatouille". I put that one in after my shower, because it shows how a person should follow a dream and a talent, no matter how much it seems odd or strange. I thought it was a good positive thought to be focusing on before I fell asleep.
I can't remember what time it was when I fell asleep, but it didn't matter as I was content on so many levels.
