2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Did you have a fun, relaxing and or productive Saturday? I hope that it was a bit of everything. We all need to have a bit of fun everyday, time to relax and to be productive. Perhaps even your productivity was taking the time for yourself. Nothing wrong with that. Pulling away from the television screen, the computer screen, your smartphone is so important. We all need quality time to work on our body, mind and soul. Going for a walk in nature, reading a good book, maybe going for a manicure or pedicure, a massage, doing yoga or meditation. All of these things are relaxing and also productive. I am the Queen of watching television and I watch far too much in any given day so when I say that to step away, I can relate. We are becoming far to dependant on “screen time.” I always used to say that I did not want a cellphone because I do not want to be that accessible. I thought and felt that because everyone carried them on their person at all times – it was necessary to answer all incoming calls and emails and texts as they arrived/came in. IT IS NOT. We have become a society that thinks/feels the necessity for things to be instant. Not a great idea as far as I am concerned. Technology has taken over our lives. Most of us are “addictive” by nature, I think most if not all humans are…. we are addicted to all sorts of things and certainly does not need to be drugs or alcohol. Anyway I am not here to preach – just to relay my feelings. As I get older, I want to live a easy, less demanding and more authentic life. Being true to myself with no games. Likely I could write on this subject for a long time as most of us could certainly do but there are things to do. Alvin is also calling out for me in the way that he does. I am concerned about the human race as much as I am about myself, Alvin, my family and friends. So if there is any takeaway here ….. please be good to yourself …… go for that walk ….. have a nice long bath… go for a massage …. do something just for you ….. just for you.

The sun has been up for a bit now. The sky appears to be clear so not raining. We had a constant light rain from Friday night until late last night. We did not get any of the “stuff” that was a possibility and I am grateful for that.

This morning one of my neighbours and friends is coming for a visit and for a game or five of JENGA. It is our favourite. I did not have a chance to practice so will have to rely on my previous experience. Should be fun.

I hope that you all have a great Sunday. Wash that floor and finish the laundry but do that time to go for a walk or have that nice relaxing bath with your favourite music lightly filling the air.

Happy Sunday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love, laughter and gratitude.
