Got Pondering This Morning

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

I read a couple blogs this morning that got me thinking. One talked about enjoying a day on the water. Another talked about exploring what direction she wanted to go in life. One just wrote a quote from Eberhard Arnold: Only those who look with the eyes of children can lose themselves in the object of their wonder.

It's August 13. Living in Michigan, I know the nice weather is limited. It hit me: I haven't enjoyed the summer as much as I should have. I haven't done very many fun things this summer. I've been in the mindset that I need to get organized in the house and in my daily routine. It's time I think of doing what I want to do outside while I can. When the weather gets cooler, then I can work on the house more and do the studying I want to do.

    So many things to do, and I too wonder why sometimes, I sit around feeling sorry for myself, when there are so many things I could be doing. I am surrounded by summer festivals and a 300th Anniversary of Fortress Louisbourg and what have I done? Gone to one senior tea, one book club, and one boardwalk noontime concert?s And, just as in Michigan, in NS, the climate changes and so do all the activities, so I seem to be out of sync with the seasons....

    My friend of 50 years asked me if I wanted to go work at her bro's blueberry business - can choose which days and come home in between... and I find myself wondering, the picking the blueberries is what I enjoy. But this will actually be working in the factor sorting the berries and removing the crap.... I don't know if I want to do that, if I can even do that, on my feet, bent over for hours and hours. I have till next week to think about it, but maybe what I should really be doing is enjoying what is all around me, new fun experiences.... this would be a new experience, but I don't know so much about FUN.... can try for a couple days and see though, can't I?
