USA loss to Ghana; Life goes on…….I guess.

So, after the U.S vs Ghana game, I was depressed :-(.  I took my depressed self up to my moms cottage in the mountains.  The ride on the curvy roads to get there was wonderful and I went from a hot sticky trafficky city…..to quiet calm, cool and green, and lots of little living creatures!  Ahh, just what my soul needed.  My mom’s neighbors had a BBQ and during the BBQ there was a riveting thunderstorm  nearby that knocked the… Read More »USA loss to Ghana; Life goes on…….I guess.

I went for a run early this morning and when I got back, the little girl I live with came rushing to the door to answer it (she could hear me turning my key) and instructed me to be very quiet.  She and her brother were preparing breakfast in Bed for their Dad, with this card placed on the tray.  It was so cute!

In town I absorbed the scene, people watching, looking in artsy creative stores and then I found the perfect restaurant to eat dinner.  AMICAS, wood fired pizza and Mircorbrews.  YUMMY!  It was hopping!

So far, I seemed to have planned my months perfectly (as far as focusing on a subject each month) I was getting up to my ears in financial pod-casts, leaps, and options and commodities, Gold baby gold……the month ended with a Flare of wild volatility in the market.  Greece was the talk and then many things I listened to say….its going to happen to us.

“This being human is a guest house.  Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meaness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.  Welcome and attend them all: Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight” ~Rumi
