Reset - hanging on

Friday, July 05, 2019

It feels like Monday - and I treasure Monday's. It's the day to start over, or do over, to focus on the things that need doing and let the others get away.

Independence Day was a good day - got a few important chores done. One had to do with proceeding on a plan to do solar panels on the roof. A second had to do with completing a contract to buy a condo apartment to replace the multi-storey condo townhouse that we have been living in. The third was to pressure wash the back patio in anticipation of a BBQ session with the next door neighbors.

The best? Having next door friends we've known for something like 30 years over for simple burgers and sausage. Chilly and foggy, so we stayed on the clean patio only long enough to do some cooking. Then inside where it was warm for dinner and conversation. A great evening.

The fog was dense and persistent. No fireworks. A definite shortcoming of this place.

Today I look around, want to clean my desk, update some software, and make some plans for the next month. It feels like a brand new day. Each one is filled with opportunity.

    Fabulous! So nice to hear Independence Day was so nice and you're feeling ready to go.

    Feels like Monday to me too! I also had a nice Independence Day. It was quiet. Me and my dear hubby. Nice breakfast out back on our recently cleaned up patio. Spent some time chilling at a local coffee shop and got to see one of my favorite baristas.

    And, I am SO enjoying the local berries this year. Made a smoothie for dinner with frozen strawberries and boysenberries. Oh my goodness! So tasty.

    Best wishes with the tasks at hand today, Doug.
