The Lake Won

Saturday, Jul 21

Here I sit, in my Uncle Harry chair, in the living room of the lake house. Both dogs are at my feet, Sadie snoring, Bernice watching me closely. I’m convinced that dogs read energy–she knows I’m planning to go out later for fresh flowers, some groceries and a copy of the new Harry Potter book.

The weather is quite cool, so I probably won’t be in the pool. It looks as though we might get some rain a little later in the day. That’s fine with me–it’s cozy here, and quiet.

The living room floor is finished, up at the other house, and does it ever look fabulous. Still more carpets to rip out, in the guestrooms (there are four) and the downstairs, where my office is going to be, but it feels like progress! It occurred to me this morning, as I was journaling, that the outer construction and renovation–barn, floors, etc.–is really a reflection of the changes I’m making on the inside.

I use a simple but very effective emotional-release technique from a book called “The Sedona Method.” Since it’s copyrighted material, I can’t explain it here, but check it out if you’re feeling stuck. Powerful stuff.
