Happy Friday. It started as a rainy week and honestly was really nice to have a few days to stay inside and get stuff done. It has been busy on the work front with a lot of projects finalizing soon. I had an annoying email situation this week with the company I use and ultimately had to scrub a lot of emails from my subscriber list. If you notice you aren’t getting emails from me you can sign back up here (my apologies in advance I had no other options). We are full speed ahead on house projects and I can’t wait to show you the one we are hopefully finishing today! Looking like a gorgeous weekend in Vermont and we’re planning to do some hiking and canoeing. Wishing you all a great weekend.

Here’s the best of the week…

    The Dreams Article was very interesting. I gave the same recurring dreams . They aren’t too hard to figure out because those things truly happened to me, but I guess the trauma remains . Is I am trying to get home and I can’t find my familiar house . My house, a farm in the Berkshires went up to Auction thanks to my husband leaving me and the kids and not paying the back taxes and the fire insurance . Yes it was for a younger model . The second dream is I am trying to find my two former lives in my life in long term relationships with me and when I find them , they are with someone else. So these dreams come from hurtful losses and have been shared with a therapist . They still occur though.
