SIX days till I travel. Half-packed. Will try on clothes to see what is most comfortable for travel then pack the last few items.
MICHELLE: I haven't listened to the radio or music in a LONG time. Radio stations here are all in Arabic and not what I want to listen to and none of my devices that play music seem to work...hmm... might be something to look into when in the USA?
Affirmation: Slow and steady winds the race. Attitude habit builder: Focused and Prepared Body: Another day OP Spirit: Mystical Gratitude: A day of rest
Today I spent the day resting and managed to get one homemaking chore done. Also listened to a music channel that plays music from the 40's and was surprised how much I enjoyed it.
Cathy: The last exhibition I went to was one that had gigantic dinasours which were incredibly interesting to me. Today I saw a Broadway play on the public broadcasting system called 42nd Street. It was just such fun to watch those wonderfully talented actors/dancers/ singers. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Affirmation: Don't worry, be happy! Attitude habit builder: Cheerful and content Body: More rest Spirit: Translucent Gratitude: My health
Another winter day that included snow flurries. We are headed back into spring by Saturday. My first Iris flower bloomed today since it apparently ignored the winter weather. I saw a Western Tanager on the Rose bush today which was such a treat. I haven't seen one in about 20 years so I was just delighted.
Cathy: I can't believe you are at the end of the alphabet again. I really enjoy reading all your creativity!
Another busy day. Outside my window Robin parents were teaching their youngster how to remove worms from the earth. It was such a precious site.
Wednesday - Such a delightful day for me!!! My brother and his wife flew 3,000 miles to surprise me for my birthday today.
Last day before I travel. I will return home on the 6th so may or may not check in while away.
Affirmation: I am confident and prepared for the trip
Gratitude: family to meet me when I arrive and fun things to do while with them
It will be a quick trip but filled with making memories. I have a carry-on and purse to pack and a few pounds to lose that have found me in the last week. Being with my sister who is at goal weight and active will be a good thing for me.
I will check in if I can and have time and the inclination to do so. If I don't check in...I will be back in June...around the 6th or 7th.
Affirmation: I acknowledge others and their needs as valid and important. Attitude habit builder: Focused and Determined Body: Functional Fitness Spirit: Intelligent Gratitude: I am grateful that I understand the importance of posting daily here. It truly is life changing!
Affirmation: I effortlessly make changes as needed. Attitude habit builder: Relaxed and confident Body: Nightly Yoga Spirit: Discerning Gratitude: The tiny bees in the pine trees gathering whatever it is that they are after. They make the most incredible humming noise.
Cathy, Glad you are enjoying your time with family!
affirmationn: I take responsibility for choices I make
gratitude: time with family.
I have had nearly one week with my sister. I leave for Southern California tomorrow. I have walked every morning, had a bit too much food and more than one late night. It has been marvelous. tomorrow I head (with my sister) to our brother's house. Life is good and I am making the most of this visit!
Affirmation: I love life!!! Attitude habit builder: Determined and resilient Body: Getting lots of functional fitness steps lately Spirit: Homey Gratitude: Beautiful weather (and no wind)
The Iris bulbs I planted have now grown and are starting to form flowers which is very exciting since I will have many colors and two tone variations that will be a surprise as they begin to mature. I start calling my ranch hand chores "gardening" and claim I have a hobby.
