In case you didn't know, I 'work' on Mondays at the shop.....
I look after three shops actually: Seaside Gallery, Fancy Lucky Vintage,
and Mid-Century Maniac (my shop).
Two are located on the third floor while the gallery is on the main floor.
From 'my perch' upstairs I have a panoramic view of the beauty
of this small part of the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia.
Yesterday was a wild day....dark clouds, bands of rain coming and going,
lightning, thunder, occasional ray of sunshine,
and ending with no 'power'.
Here are a few photos I took 'out the window.

The following quote is from 'Heart Advice, Weekly Quotes from Pema Chodron'.
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE UNHAPPY?
"Sit quietly for a few minutes and become mindful of your breath as it goes in and out.
Then contemplate what you do when you're unhappy or dissatisfied and want to feel better.
Even make a list if you want to.
Then ask yourself: Does it work? Has it ever worked? Does it soothe the pain?
Does it escalate the pain?
If you're really honest, you'll come up with some pretty interesting observations."

A 'potpourri' kind of week......
Had a great day yesterday with Gaye, our blogger/FB friend, touring the city
before she sets out for a tour of the province today.
Gaye hails from northern New York State.
