A Day that Feels Ominous

I am not sure why but today feels heavy, very ominous, a feeling I haven’t been able to shake all day. At the same time, my day has been productive and full. I started out doing my morning dance routine, its funny because I’m finding that I go to sleep at night looking forward to that part of the morning, the upside of living alone, dance like no ones watching and literally I can.

I then went out and removed snow from five vehicles so others that live in my building wouldn’t have too, a nice Sunday morning gift for them, exercise and fresh air for me. I then moved my car for the plow to be able to get rid of the snow, it snowed overnight and although it wasn’t an amount to stop one from going about the day, it did require some removal first.

I then got busy being busy working on what I always feel are my mental health projects, three bird house, two of which I completed today, the third is a work in process. ( pictures below). They are fun and happy and definitely needed with this ominous feeling sitting in the pit of my stomach.

A mid day walk trying to clear this heavy feeling from my being, it still sits with me as I write this, but I’m sitting sipping a cup of tea, grateful that today once again I am pain free, fatigue free. Grateful for the company of my little dog ( Pheobe).

A work in process

So as we head towards the last day of the first month of 2022, although life has taken an unexpected turn that leaves more questions than answer I have more to be thankful about and grateful for than I could have imagined. If the events that have unfolded so far in January are an indication of the coming year I will have much to look forward in 2022.

The birdhouses are adorable! Love the detail and colors. You had mentioned that you were going to work on crafts. Working on crafts is one of my favorite pastimes lately.

Hope the bad feeling goes away. Have a lovely day.
