After my trip to storage today, I sent myself on a photo side trip. It's been awhile since I've felt like it. Wish I'd worn my bathing suit under my clothes, cause it was high tide n warm enough to swim. Toe dipping n walking up n down fav beach in the surf was accomplished..
If that activity can't cheer me up, nothing can. There were some new little n quick birds with woody-brown markings on white I need to ID. I finally found my "Birds of North America" hardcover during re-packing activities. Now I need time to search the pages. I wanted pics, but you guessed it. I blinked, n they magically dissappeared before I could turn the cam!.
The lawn got mowed during dusk. I finished up by street lamp light. Thought I'd never get done, due to the tall, thick stuff clogging up the clipping collector getting full every five minutes or less- had to keep stopping to empty it. Whew, That's finally done. Now I just need hours to trim shrubs n pull out bittersweet vines..
I've been very sentimental recently due to bumping into all kinds of memory items while going thru boxes. I've found alot of cool old pics of the kids. Wish I had places to hang them all- Need to perform a few wire repairs first. An item which unexpectedly knocked me for a loop was a postcard from my Mom that was in papers taken off the frig door back in the '90's..
I really miss getting her postcards she sent from every trip she took. She loved to travel, n went far often. Her all time fav trip was to Aussi n New Zealand. I'd like to go there someday, too. The postcard was just from Georgia, n mostly talked about weather cause it was snowing here at the time, but I read so much emotion into it. Fifteen years later, I'm very glad my Mother took the time n thought to do this for me. Who could guess I'd still appreciate a piece of paper with her writing to me on it all this time since she's been gone? I'm having a tough time looking at the stuff from cleaning her house out, too..
Jannie Funster has been out of the country n awol from the net for just a few days now, n I'm a basket case! Her silliness is just good medicine for my moodiness. I'm challenged feeling amused at life this week, with the mold issue weighing on me. (I'm still waiting to hear from the folks who are supposed to help fix it.)
It's difficult for me to enjoy my time while all this is up in the air. I'm one who likes things done.
I feel relief at getting to fav beach for pics, n for getting the lawn done. The next big relief will be getting the work done in the back room, n getting my things back again. I'm hoping this doesn't stretch on indefinately into fall, so I still can't be comfortable in here for so much time. I need to dwell on other stuff..
Well, the positive side is, I'm cleaning up alot which needed sorting n ditching. I'd like to have the time to do more tho, n sleep too. It's hard to feel so tired all the time. I'll try to keep shifting focus to walking in ocean breaks (sore feet are soothed),
n eating chocolate ice cream more often..
It's now alot of work to lift my spirits. Of course hitting the lottery jackpot
could work wonders... ! It's one of my fav dreams,."What would I do right now if...?"
- Pay folks to do all this lifting n moving stuff down the stairs in the heat
- get a nice hotel room before I buy a new, bigger home with alot of storage space
- ditch the night job
- sleep as long as I feel like all week
- visit folks like MB n Nene
- concentrate on procrastinated art projects, n just goof off doodling all the time
- Spend time lounging n reading outdoors while the weather's still warm
- buy a boat to paddle around the coves
- buy a new 22mpxl cam to get way better quality pics
- plan some travels n send my folks postcards.
Wow, this all sounds so much better than what I'm doing lately!(There, that helps)
