This raincloud pretty much describes my life right now! I'm trying to stay cheerful, but this damn raincloud keeps following me around. I know there has to be a silver lining around it somewhere, so I'm begging you Mr. Raincloud, if your going to keep following me around I need to see the silver lining behind you soon! Please!! Pretty Please!!

Norah Jones
Norah Jones was born Geetali Norah Jones Shankar. Her father is Indian and her mother American. I never realized she was Indian, see what you learn when you do a little research. Anyway, I love Norah Jones music and her voice is so pretty. I saw her on David Letterman, which I never watch, it just happened to be on, which is pretty weird because my little guy usually stays up late and we are still watching Noggin at that time of night. Anyways, she was so sweet on the show. I liked her even more after watching it.

I like her short haircut too. I also never realized that she is only 5' 1" . I'm only 4'9 1/2" and I used to always get the short jokes. I wonder if she did?? If you haven't listened to any of Norah Jones music there is some here on my Blog.

When I was a little girl I always wanted to be a cowgirl, a nurse and a mommy. I did become a mommy at an early age and I did have my LPN license at one point, but I never became a cowgirl and I'm sure that I never will now. I think there is something so romantic about cowboys and cowgirls.

I was just curious about the symbolic meaning of butterflies. It's one of those subjects that you know a little bit about what it means but you never really had it explained to you. Anyway, I just thought I would look up the symbolic meaning and share it with you.
In ancient Greek the word for butterfly is "Psyche", which translated means "soul". This was also the name for Eros' human lover and when the two figures are depicted they are often surrounded by butterflies.
In one of the Russian dialects, butterflies are referred to as "dushuchka" which is a derivative of the word "dusha" also meaning soul.
There is also an Irish saying that refers to the symbolic meaning of butterflies. This saying is: "Butterflies are souls of the dead waiting to pass through purgatory".
There is a small town in Mexico that also associate butterflies with souls. It is to this town that Monarch Butterflies migrate every year, around the holiday known as the Day of the Dead. The people of this town see these butterflies as the returning souls of the deceased.
Dreaming of the butterfly relates to rebirth and metamorphosis. Often when we dream of butterflies it indicates we are going through a transition in our lives. Here the subconscious is telling us to be mindful of the changes taking place. These changes are natural, and we should do our best to appreciate the shifts as they come (rather than fighting the changes).

Butterfly animal symbolism speaks of:
1. Resurrection
2. Transition
3. Celebration
4. Lightness
5. Time
6. Soul

I love butterflies! They are so delicate and beautiful! I love when girls put those little butterfly clips in their hair, it looks so cute! Such a thing of beauty!

I love cowboys and westerns. Bonanza was a great show. My favorite actor in the show was Dan Blocker who played Hoss Cartwright. I loved his sensitive side and his adorable smile! He was like a big teddy bear.

Every Mother's Nightmare!
I have a couple of boys that I can see trying this. Not only when they were little but maybe even now that they are 26 and 28. My 2nd and 3rd boys have always been pretty daring. It does look like it would be fun, but I would die if I saw my kids trying it!
