Enough IS Enough

aliaslaceygreen:

Well, down to the last two months of this year…good time to check in on intentions. words, resolutions. And to put a little bit of thought into it all… Can’t say I’ve been terribly successful…but not particularly unsuccessful, either. How about you?

My Word of the year, 2014. 

ENOUGH!  (to see previous years …)

This one showed up a few weeks ago, driving to work.  A quilting group I am part of annually shares the words they want to use as a talisman for their art. And life, as the case may be. As it happens most years, the word of the year chooses me, and I am rarely in the mood for it, or willing to give it access to my entire year, but once rooted, it refuses to allow other words the opportunity to audition for such a lofty spot in my world! And this time, I feel like maybe it needs to be tattooed on my forehead.

Because, really, enough already!  (I feel somewhat successful in last years word, Choose. I did have the foot surgery, I do have a quilt going into MAQS this February…)

My heart hurts for those who suffered and still suffer today. And a year out from Benghazi and with Syria on our lips, I really just—Imagine…

As always, love you, Pokey, Arlie, Jess and Kerin…

September 10th—A busy day.

aliaslaceygreen:

untitled-1It’s always interesting to read your thoughts, a year later. All of those OMG, I can’t DEAL with it anymore moments that make up your day to day…. Complaints about this cashier or that rude waitress, or that car that cut you off, the nerve of the service tech getting to your house an hour late… and yet.

A year from now, will you care? Taking the long view, is it really that important? Of course not! So, today, Laylabug is THREE, and a delightful chatterbox, my new phone isn’t new, and Caitriona Balfe was announced a year ago tomorrow as lead for the TV show, and Outlander has surpassed my hopes!

And forever, today reminds me of tomorrow, and of the things that really DO matter…. HUG someone today, because in a New York Minute, everything can change.

Looking forward to September 10th.

September 10th is Laylabug’s 2nd birthday. Having her in our lives has been the most wonderful thing!

Seeing her grow so fast (so FAST!) learning to speak, and seeing her personality develop has been just beyond enjoyable….the difference between parenting (when you are so exhausted all the time) and grand parenting is a truth!

But, this year, Sept 10 is also the date that Outlander is rumored to start filming in Scotland.  Well, that’s great and all, you say, but what has it got to do with anything?

Well, it’s like this. I’ve been a fan of this book series for about nine years. (A relative late-comer, the books started being published 20 years ago) Back in the beginning of the year, it was announced it was finally going to be turned into a  TV series on Starz, with Ron Moore at the helm.
