A couple of nights ago I had an odd dream about work. Usually when I'm dreaming about work I'm trying to get there and can't - thing after thing comes up, I'm frantically trying to make it, but I'm never able. It's stressful! But this dream was almost the opposite. We were definitely at work, but kind of hanging out and watching Game of Thrones. I think I was in my underwear or at least loungey clothes, and I even lit up, asking my boss, "You mind if I hit this?" and he said he didn't lol. I do remember feeling an uneasiness, like, something about this situation is not right, but otherwise it was a nice, albeit weird dream.
And I have no idea what this means, but lately I've been catching whifs of very pleasant smells that seem to originate from nowhere. Right at this moment it's something fruity and floral, almost like the scent of an old Strawberry Shortcake doll. There is no reason for this smell, as I sit alone in an office connected to a warehouse. It's definitely not coming from me! It's not always the same smell, and I am always the only one who can detect it. I feel like a crazy person, asking people, "Can you smell that?? Where is it coming from??" Phantom scents. At least a happy kind of phantom, I think.
My morning meditations continue to go well. I'm looking into meditation groups to attend, either the one in Louisville or maybe one here closer to home. The ones here are Buddist in nature, which is definitely not a bad thing, but it would be cool if I could go to one more distorted to my own personal beliefs. I'm really fiending for a spiritual community. I hope I can bring Brandon along, I think he'd be into it if it were structured and other people were doing it. He is already so kind about getting up earlier than he needs to in the mornings so I can meditate while he gets ready for the day, to give me time to get ready for the day afterward.
And barring no complications, I should have a little nephew by the end of today!! My sister went into labor last night and is at the hospital now. I have a couple nieces and a nephew already, but Emily is closer to me in location and in spirit than anyone else, and I am really looking forward to having little Jack to spoil. Brandon and I like kids, but do not want them ourselves, so I am excited to be the COOLEST AUNT EVER and spoil this one rotton.
