Nonresistance, nonjudgement, and nonattachment are the three aspects of true freedom and enlightened living. ....Page 225 "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle
I'm having a bit of a hard time with non-attachment and the like, since mopping up an entire bucket of water off the brand new flooring in my suite. The snow has been melting rapidly here and the downspout couldn't handle the pressure. It gave way and the water went directly down the side of the house, into the earth, and aparently through a weak spot in the cement into my basement suite.
I've fixed the downspout and rid myself of the water, and have been blasting the spot with a space heater, hoping to dry out the flooring and be left with minimal damage. Regardless, my brother - the landlord - is in for a treat when he gets back from Mexico next week. He's going to have to dig down into the lawn at the side of the house to find the weak spot and fix it so I don't have the same problem when the Spring rains come.
In the meantime, to prevent myself from thinking about the work ahead of me while still only part-way into this move, and buying a business, and doing year-end at my bookkeeping job, I've been distracting myself by:
*Reading up on Groundhog Day, and those thousands of crazy people who make the trek up to Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, PA each year to see if Phil can stave off 6 more weeks of Winter. Crazy or not - this is something I'd like to do.
*Eating Tim Hortons' doughnut of the month - the Caramel Apple Fritter.
*Drooling over Sylar now that Heroes has returned. (I know, the show is going the way of Lost - strange and incoherent - but I can't get enough of Sylar. Maybe they'll spin him off to his own show "Eyebrows and Mayhem.")
*Cuddling with my kitties and wishing for sunshine and Spring.
I'll get there....
