“When you're lost in those woods, it sometimes takes you a while to realize that you are lost. For the longest time, you can convince yourself that you've just wandered off the path, that you'll find your way back to the trailhead any moment now. Then night falls again and again, and you still have no idea where you are, and it's time to admit that you have bewildered yourself so far off the path that you don't even know from which direction the sun rises anymore.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert

"There’s only so many times you can allow someone to let you down before you can’t handle the disappointment anymore. When things change, people change. Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, it means accepting things that weren’t meant to be. You've got to do what’s right for you even if it hurts. I’ve come to realize that in the end, everyone turns out to be who they’re meant to be, one way or another." ~ A. Flores

Getting on with life..



Two of my three kids.. Marvin and Ghost. Who knew they would become best buddies. 


It's been a bit of a struggle lately with some depression but I am doing my best. Trying to see the bright side of things but failing miserably as I seem to get kicked in the teeth every time I turn around. One of these days it has to start getting better.... I keep telling myself that anyway. 
 
We lost Mason Friday. Cancer. He was a wonderful dog we loved him very much. He was not "my" dog.. as he loved my Dad the most.. but he still spent many a day sleeping in my office. 




Today is the provincial election and I did my part and now I just wait for tonight so I can see who gets in. I do hope we have a change in government and maybe some youth can get into power and shake things up a bit! It is time. 

Been doing hours of yard work and trying to get the winter mess cleaned up. I am almost done but don't have a lawnmower now it seems... So I will be picking something up this week.  

Look what I got from two of my good friends recently.. A wonderful Ellie from Kristina (Kristina Bears) and a sweet as pie Bunny From Shantell (Apple Dumplings). I think they look sweet together so they shall be friends from now on :) 



Went to see Cabin in the Woods on Saturday. It was not what I had expected at all.. I quite enjoyed it.... Not sure my friends thought it was cool as I did though... but my passion for campy movies might have something to do with that. lol.

So, next on my list to getting life back in order is to start cooking again. Meals have been sporadic at best as I find it difficult cooking meals for one person. I need to get over that though, I know I will and I know that takes some time. 
I think some Irish Potato onion cakes are on my list. I was the only one who liked them and they are one of my favorite... now just what to make with them. 


Hope you all have a great week, 
Hugs, 
Melanie
“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.

Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.”

Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in
life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the 
graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. 
The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the 
door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff 
around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured 
by these.
 - Susan B. Anthony
The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - never knowing.  Jim Rohn

Happy Easter and all that Jazz

 So instead of wallowing, like I have been lately I decided to do something just for me. Not for the house.. not because I think it would make someone else happy or impressed.... Just for me. I went and bought myself a new aquarium. I've always kept fish. Mainly koi that I had to leave with my parents when I moved years ago. I have a large tank at work filled with koi and some monster goldfish a friend was nice enough to give to me... but that is not quite the same as having your own little world at home to watch. I've been stockpiling live plants for a few weeks now while I searched out the tank I wanted..
 I think it turned out lovely. I bought angel fish and a few guppies. I am in love with the angel fish. I have always wanted to have angels. I was afraid I would kill them but I've done lots of research and I think they will be safe in my hands... err.. in the tank :) . I put the tank beside my TV and find myself in the living room just watching them and not even turning the TV on. :)


Next on my list...  I am in the market for a new camera. Mine is old and even though I love it immensely.. it's not really cutting it for my photography needs anymore. So as soon as I save up some moola I will be getting a new camera and that should help with bear and chinny photos. I've picked out the one I want... It's nothing too fancy, I adore cannon cameras and have always been happy for years with the ones I have purchased... I think this one will work awesome for me. I can't wait.

So anyway... I hope you all have a Happy Easter... Oh and a huge thank-you to my friends who have been calling and coming to visit and dragging my buttola out of the house. I don't know what I would do without you. <3

 Happy Easter Melly style!
Love and hugs, 
Melanie
