4th of July update

Saturday, July 04, 2020

Happy 4th of July! And God Bless America, land that I love Lots going on here ... and still no internet. The company has to replace the tower and due to the COVID-19 deal, production and shipping us delayed. So no idea when it will be fixed Meanwhile I will check in with the app on my phone... and I can’t get to my groups or friends... So rather than complain, I’m using the time to get back to life, social distancing from the annoying social media stuff Plan on getting back to some of the simple things that make life great..... It’s a blessing in disguise !!!!! What are some of the things you would do if you could, if you had time?

    My home internet was down for a week. It is up now - for the moment.

    I was able to do some internet stuff at work, but I lost my Spark login streak - at 1389 days! Guess I'll just start over...

    I hope you had a good 4th.

    We have the gift of time right now, because of Covid. I did a lot of work in our yard, including digging a drainage ditch, which hasn't been tested yet. I also tackled the dwarf bamboo that has crept from my neighbor's yard (she apologized for it), and planted lots of flowers and painted the wall in the backyard. We regularly watch Mama Doe and Baby Fawn. He's really growing and can run so fast now. He easily jumps bushes. Two days ago he jumped over the 3' chainlink fence between yards.

    Notice: None of those activities involved the internet.

    They have to put in a new tower??? Yikes! That's really something. Hope you two don't have to pay for it!!! LOL

    Happy 4th of July!!!

    I am doing 'em . . . listening to the birds, working in my garden, walking my beloved Henry, playing some golf and getting out in my kayak with my DH, reading. All the little things that make life pleasurable and meaningful for me.

    I would get my whole house purged of unnecessary clutter and organized.

    I have lots of time and do what I can with that time based on my energy levels and stamina. I think if I were thinking about if others had more time... I would probably spend more time out on the water. (It takes two of us to load my kayak)

    So sorry that it will take so long for you to get your internet service back up and running.
    I need to quit spending so much time on my computer and start reading more of all these books I've got sitting around here.

    There is only one thing I really want to do when it is possible, and that is to check out a antique store that opened up last fall. I just know there is something in there calling my name. Otherwise is has had little effect on my daily life.

    I'm ruminating on that nowadays. What do I want to do, be, feel moving on? Scraping away time and circumstance to reveal who I was at the start. Keep that plus the good adds. When this painful period is done, it is time for a new chapter.
