"I took a walk around the world to ease my troubled mind..."

..."I left my body lying somewhere in the sands of time".....



A funny thing happened during the fast-paced wild world that became this weekend. I was driving home around 3am, pissed off & mentally a lil hurt, and then I saw something peeking above the rows of trees. I saw a quick glimpse of the Empire State Building. Now I live about 30 minutes outside of Manhattan on the other side of the George Washington Bridge & in some points of my county if your just high up enough you can see the city for a brief moment. I don't know why but it made me stop and say "Oh, Woa, look at that".

It kinda took me out of my funk for a moment and made me see that there is something just beyond the horizon. There is a future out there...there is a light at the end of tunnel. Right now I'm trapped in this rut but there is other options, there is more, there is going to be a bright star to light up my life. For some odd reason my future is doing the cat & mouse thing where I'm chasing it and not catching it. It's like the lil cat on my sidebar trying to catch the butterfly. Its always out of reach...but its there and I'm going to find a way to get it. Definitely going to find a way I think I just need a lil bit of luck. If I find a four leaf clover that would be awesome!

Besides this I basically ran around like a mad woman trying to jam as much as I could into this weekend. *Deep Breath* Went ice skating, saw Shutter Island, went to a quilt show, went to visit my best friend Danielle, drank at the brewery where I wrote some of my zombie story, got to try a 10 year old cigar, watched Crank at a friend's house, slept a lil, ran errands, saw my mom's friends chickens, went shopping, and then made cupcakes. *Let out breath* My weekends seem years long sometimes...years and years.

Well I did take some pictures so I have proof of my craziness. hehe. Yes apparently you can keep chickens as pets. I did not know that. I wish I could have stole one of the baby chicks cuz they were too cute!! So I'm going to watch the end of the last of the Academy Awards & bid you all good night and hope each of one you find a lil bit of luck!!





Title & first line is from the song "Kryptonite" by Three doors Down. Goodnight everyone!! =)

I loved that song in high school. ^_^

It has been a crazy busy weekend. Now, I just wish I had one more day.

I have chickens! They're my favorite when they're chicks. I have a freckle on my right pointer finger, and they always try to peck it off when I'm teaching them to eat. :P

OceanDreams said...

Those chickens are darling and how fun that you saw a glimpse of the Empire State Building! Those cookies look delicious and way to fit it all in sweetie!

Alicia said...

that does sound like quite the busy weekend! but it also sounds like a ton of fun :) and you're right...there is a light at the end of the tunnel and you will catch your butterfly...just keep that head up and keep moving forward!

Nina said...

There's always something in the horizon for everyone especially for someone as special as you, Melanie!

Speaking of which, I sent you something this morning by Fedex as my commitment to Barry's (Life in Quotations) Bloggers Over Borders project. I was told that you would receive it by Wednesday. Will you please let me know if you do?

Have a great Monday!

That is a busy weekend - but I love that you live in NY and caught a glimpse of the Empire State - so jealous!

Little Ms Blogger said...

How was Shutter Island? I want to see that and Alice.

So, it sounds like you need a day off from your weekend.

Hey, did you ever come up with names for the characters in your novel?

nando.gino said...

LOL, baby chicks as a pet ? it reminds me of my early age when I was 8 or 9 yrs old. I always buy a baby chicken every week, but it always end with me twisted the chick's neck..

Kelly said...

Wow you have been busy! Breathe!!!
Love your Alice post you look so cute in the photo!

LESAPEA MUSINGS said...

Your weekend sounded manic, take time to center yourself and re-focus.

Was shutter island good??

My gran-mum kept chickens, I didn't share her passion.

Who were all those cupcakes for???

Anyway thanks for stopping by my blog, actually I have no idea what I'm doing. I started only last month...wish me luck.

Awww cute cute cute little chic! Sounds like you've been busy as a bee over the weekend. =) What kind of cupcakes did you bake? Yummm yummm

Helen [In Elegance] said...

I love your positive outlook, you will get out of that rut, you will catch the mouse.

tess said...

woah you are busy! sounds like a great weekend though for the most part.

your empire state building sighting reminds me of the washington monument in DC. I think there is a restriction on building height in DC so nothing can be taller than the monument, it means that in most parts of the city you can see it. it is mildly comforting to know it is always there, particularly when I am feeling really unmoored

Susan R. Mills said...

The baby chic is so cute. I'd have wanted to take one home with me too.

Pop Champagne said...

hehe i used to have chicks as pets, they're sooo cute, but then they grew up and became angry chickens... I wish they'd stay cute forever! btw I totally agree with you, lady gaga always looks so miserable! her face on cosmo = uggggh ironically there's a bunch of "sex advice" around her pics too

Hope Chella said...

A weekend with chicks and cupcakes sounds pretty fantastic. But trying to cram everything in before Monday is not always so fun. Happy Monday!

Because I am awesome, you being associated with me makes you (almost) equally as awesome as I am.

Therefore I gave you an award to show you how awesome I think you are.
