|What Donna Lee Means|
You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.
People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.
You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.
You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.
You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.
You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.
You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
And I always thought Donna Lee meant 'lady of the meadow' !

The laundry is folded and put away. The things that need to be ironed are hanging up to go to the dry cleaners to be pressed. I gave myself permission not to iron anymore. I hate it. No, really hate it. It costs a few dollars to have PK's work shirts and my summer cottons ironed but it is so worth it. It's like a burden has been lifted from my shoulders.

And my sock yarn club yarn came but before I could get a proper photo, Calvin has claimed it for his own. I think he and I are going to have a talk about who's in charge here. ( I'm afraid I'll lose.) I feel sorry for them in their furry coats. Hobbes is asleep under the desk on the cool floor and Calvin is in the middle of the kitchen floor (not in the way or anything).
Don't forget to mosey on over to the TdFkal website and sign up. Slots are limited!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Stay cool.

Have a peaceful weekend, all. We are predicted to have temps in the high 90's (37C) ! Last week we were in the 60's and wondering if it would ever get warm. Well, I guess the answer to that is YES.

|Your Power Element is Earth|
Your energy: balancing
Your season: changing of seasons
Dedicated and responsible, you are a rock to your friends.
You are skilled at working out even the most difficult problems.
Low key and calm, you are happiest when you are around loved ones.
Ambitious and goal oriented, you have long term plans to be successful.
So, I have a power element and it's dirt? Somehow I was hoping for something more glamorous like uranium. Well, I keep telling the folks at work that I am not just the "grassroots" of the organization but the "dirt under the grass". I guess I was right all along!
Our weekend went way too fast. We got our income tax refund and spent it on clothes and a new grill. PK and I never just go clothes shopping and our wardrobes needed a boost. He got white shirts and khaki pants (again!) and I got summer skirts and some bright colored shirts. I am determined to break out of the blue/neutral colors rut I am in. Saturday I cleaned and did the laundry and cooked and Sunday I sat around and slept and knitted (it was just too humid to spin) and PK mowed the back 40. Next week we are cleaning out the pool and getting it ready to swim. Elanor informs me that there are dead squirrels in there. EWWWWW. I am so grateful that PK said he would clean them out because I think I can't handle that. We'll empty it Friday, scrub it Saturday and start filling it up right away. And then we will have cool weather for weeks! I love having the pool but it is work to keep it clean and clear.
I went to a training today on Diversity in Recovery Planning (recovery from mental illness). The speaker was good and easy to listen to. (I did several inches on my striped socks. ) She said something that I found interesting and have been thinking about. She said "We are all in recovery from something". Hmm. I had an uncle who abused me as a child and I have put it behind me and don't consider myself "in recovery from sexual abuse". It's something that happened and I survived and got over it. Should I think about it all the time and use it as an excuse to not do/accomplish things I want to? I have a great deal of compassion for those who are truly in pain from life experiences and respect what they have gone through. I see and hear things every day that make me despair for the human race (and things that give me a great deal of hope as well). But are we leaning on things that happened to us as crutches so we don't have to succeed or live up to our or others' expectations? What is the definition of success? I am not a wealthy woman, nor will I ever be (unless I win the lottery!) but I consider myself successful. I am happy, have a good family that I adore and a job that is fulfilling and I feel loved every day. What more could I ask for? Really? New cars and second homes and fabulous jewelry are not my cup of tea. If I had money, I'd probably give it to people who needed it. Don't get me wrong, I like spending money as much as the next person but I just don't feel like there are a lot of things that I need. I was raised to believe that money makes you successful and therefore in my parents' eyes, I am not a success. I can live with that because my definition is different. What's your definition of success?
Wow, isn't that profound for a Monday? I hope you are all well and your week is starting out on a good note.
