End of an Era

Well it's done now. After 5 years of service my first car has gone on to serve other cars in need. I loved that car. We went everywhere together. It had character. Some people said it was a piece of junk but it's little problems made it mine. I must move on now and give the rolling prune my full attention. *sigh*

Happy Thanksgiving

What am I thankful for?...
My Bible
A place to work
An apartment to live in
A wonderful roommate
My friends and family
3 cute birds
The Jitterbug group
A moving car aka the "rolling prune"
The ability to do things
The beautiful weather that has been going on lately
My talents and weaknesses
At the moment the chicken broth and noodles cooling down
All other food
and things learned

Party in the House

I didn't make it to Jitterbugs last night. Some friends and I decided to have a sleep over. I remember having a slumber party once when I was about 11. This one was a little different. It was so much fun. We eat pizza and roasted marshmallows. We played twister and apples to apples, and need for speed on the play station. Of course we also had to play an exciting game of Truth or Dare. I chose mostly truth but when we had a bunch of people choosing truth I decided to change it up with a dare. They played some hip hop music and made me dance like I was in club. One picture was taken but I can figure out a way to get rid of it.
This morning we all went down to get manicures. The last time I got a manicure it was for 13th birthday. That was also an experience. It was kind of weird being on the other side of the table. I'm so used to painting other people's nails. It didn't take me long to chip a couple of them. That made me a little mad but I'm still enjoying them. I love how smooth they've gotten. Now I'm home and trying to decided what I'm going to do tonight. Nap time.

I know it's been awhile since I've posted. To be honest I've had a post completely written out in my head for weeks now but have been afraid to write it.
I can't think about posting anything else. My thoughts have begun to calm down a lot. I still don't want to post what's been going on but I think I'm ready to start writing again.
Last night I talked my friend onionboy into going for a walk with me. The night was perfect for it. I'm trying to get out and experience as much of the fall season as I can. I know it's almost over. This season has always been my favorite. I love the colors and how refreshing everything feels. I think I've been noticing it more this year.
When I was younger and something unpleasant was going on in my life I used sink into the details of things around me. I would examine the cracks in wood, veins in leaves, spider webs, and pretty much everything else. I still do that in a way. With all the things I've been feeling lately that might be one of the reasons why fall has been standing out this year.
I don't know however; if depression is the reason for increased senses. I know in my head I'm experiencing signs of depression but I hate putting my senses in a negative category.
I like to think of them more as God's pleasant distraction or a means of bringing me back to Himself. Long before I knew who God really was and even long before I stepped into church, I thought of God as Creature. Enjoying the outdoors is one of ways I feel close to Him. Now that I think about it, it actually makes sense that God would increase my senses if I'm having hard time. Enjoying what's around me makes me feel alive. Anyway, I'll try to post a little more often.
