Walking

Friday, September 12, 2014

The boat festival was nice. It was just setting up and a gentleman was sitting alone waiting for his brother. They have a boat there, and I got a quick tour. His aunt is 90 and she was there along with another cousin who was 74. Beautiful boat. I believe you can see them for a cost. My sister says, Joyce will talk to anyone. Yes, I said, and I am never lonely or without. A friend once made is a friend for life. Even if you never see them again. I never take anyone for granted, and I thank or greet everyone I meet. It is called being polite and kind.

MY SISTER CALLS ME A BUM MAGNATE.

Jo Ann is just stuffy, and does not have any joy in her life.

Wishing everyone love. Joyce

    I'll bet your days are a lot happier than your sisters are. I wish you happy days every day! (My day was happy. Our temps have been over 100 for ages and today it was 80's and now 60's. I couldn't believe it!) Hugs! emoticon

Festival

Thursday, September 11, 2014

The big Paddle Wheel boats are here at the port and as soon as I get done here I will go look at the boats. It rained last night and a bit this morning, I came out prepared.

Last night, I cleaned floors, bathroom, and this week end, I will clean baseboards. I am having a blast.

Wishing everyone was as happy as me.

I have gotten all of my change of addresses done. So I am doing good, REAL GOOD.

Love

    So glad you're enjoying your new apartment. You mentioned the arthritis which I have too. It was getting very difficult to walk much. I know you need to keep moving so I complained to my heart doctor and he said to "get to the pool" So now I get an hour workout in the pool and I feel much much better. It helps with the arthritis, keeps me moving and is a fun socializing time too. Check out the Y.

Cooler Day.

Monday, September 08, 2014

I walked up here to the library on Sunday, and as hot as it was, it wasn't open for 2 more hours. No place to sit, or any shade I walked back home. I was a mess by the time I got there.

I am just so complete. It doesn't matter what I do or do not have. I am complete. By my birthday next March, I should be completely set here. I will have the basics, I do not need, like obviously everyone else here, wall to wall furnishings. I like the simple look.

I will talk to you later. Love

Apartment

Saturday, September 06, 2014

It has been 1 full week since I moved into my apartment. I do not have much, but by the holidays I may surprise myself. I am so at peace. Here at the library. I hate paying $50 for internet, but I will probably break down and do it. It has been so HOT here, I haven't been out of the apartment.

Hope you are all well. I will get here tomorrow. Supposed to cool down. Love

    I am such a believer in recycling. If you can, get to a Thrift shop. Like the great prophet Macklemore says, "One mans trash is another mans Come-up". There are so many ways to get the things that are needed without breaking the bank. Soon it will be cooling down and the walks to the library will be a joyful outing instead of a sticky drudge.

I'm so happy you're loving your new-found freedom

    JOYCE, AT LEAST YOU ARE IN YOUR OWN SPACE NOW AND HAVE YOUR OWN LIFE. ALSO, YOU MAY HAVE TO PAY FOR THE INTERNET BUT IT WILL BE WELL WORTH IT. JUST THINK; NOW YOU CAN CONTACT EVERYONE WITHOUT FEAR OF THE PHONE NOT CONNECTING. GET THAT WEBCAM WORKING AND WE CAN THEN CHAT FACE TO FACE. LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT.

Home Sweet Home

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Spent all day yesterday being busy. I am in my efficiency apartment and I can tell you I am so happy. I was tearing boxes down until 10 p.m. and putting stuff away.

I couldn't believe I could move around without worrying about disturbing anyone. Also no T.V. IT IS SO PEACEFUL. I hate TV except for weather and news. Someday I will take the plunge, but not for a while. Maybe by Christmas.

It is to get up to 90 degrees today, so I am going to close for now, before I have to walk HOME IN ALL THAT HEAT. LOVE JOYCE

    I'm so happy for you!!! I really understand what you mean by being able to move about without worrying about other people. When I am alone, I LOVE being able to listen to my own music, my own inner voice or my own silence!
Enjoy creating your own space. It is your refuge from the world, your pallet for your brush and an extension of your being. emoticon
