Hi Nicole!

It has been said that this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt... suggests that those who "have a clear idea of what they want to achieve and a strong belief in their ability to make it happen are the ones who will be most successful in creating the future they desire....& it encapsulates the essence of hope, determination, and the transformative power of dreams.”

Anyway...as always... Take care

(1 comment) Thank you SO MUCH Marcy @MarcyW882921 for stopping by.

 

Luv that you are staying busy and well!!!  👍👍👍

 

Lol, I am having one of my feel sorry for myself and worry about my laid off daughter in Florida DAYS.

 

But it has been a PEACEFUL DAY here in Cave Spring-Virginia, about to change as folks head back from work.

 

👣👣👣  As we say all the time - 1 Step At A Time, I "is" Stepping to get out of bed for that Morning Coffee I didnot have. It is about 3pm ET.  🙄🙄🙄

 

ENJOY the rest of your VERY BUSY DAY my dear, you are ALWAYS stopping by when you can.

 

Thanks,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Monday Monday. I played tennis a half hour earlier today because of scheduling and initially I wasn't quite awake. I also made it to water aerobics so I could catch up with a friend I hadn't seen for awhile. The outside temperature was great, but the pool was cool! 🥶 Tonight is my chorus' Friends & Family night so I have to get myself together for that performance. I'm grateful for a beautiful day of life and activity.

 

Wishing you a peaceful and satisfying day!

Nicole @SummerIsTooHOT ,

 

I think you had better grab that cup of coffee before people start returning home from work. You might need that little jolt of preparation!

 

Here's something to think about in response to your worry...

 

“If the problem can be solved why worry? If the problem cannot be solved worrying will do you no good.”
Shantideva

 

Think of ways to use your energy to benefit yourself and others. You've got this!

Well, an up-all-night - lol, so grateful I get to stay home = no need to be driving with no sleep.

 

Won $1 on one of my $1 Scratch Off Tickets and $3 on the other one. Yes, my $2 splurge every Tuesday when I head to Walmart for groceries.

 

I had NOT seen my friend (Walmart employee) for the LAST two visits. But learning to APPRECIATE the "random" things in my life. Well TODAY she was behind me and we hugged. A dear lady who is a Cancer Survivor. IF I had not decided to CHANGE to the OTHER Self-Checkout, I probably would NOT have ran into her.

 

Lol, was in one of my moods YESTERDAY [TUESDAY] MORNING and didnot want to deal with the staff at my usual Self-Checkout location.

 

My daughter in Florida finally finished working on her resume. Yes, after 5 years, her resume needed updating. Now to hope she finds something soon before her 5 weeks Layoff Severance runs out.

 

Everyone, FIND YOUR PEACE TODAY...

 

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Nicole @SummerIsTooHOT , It sounds like you had a pretty good day. A little profit on the lottery tickets, a chance meeting with your friendly Walmart employee, and a hug! 

 

I did a Zumba class online and took a very good line dancing class through AARP. It's hard not to be happy when you are dancing!

 

A cancelled class for this evening allows me to have dinner with a friend so all is well.

Thank you Nicole. Good to hear from you too, and also to read everyone's shares. I was trying to start a new topic. What Not To Do When Grieving. I found a good article but can't find it again. I've done a lot of what Not to do when grieving. Lol Does everyone have suggestions of what not to do?  Thank you.

Don't be silent. Express your feelings and needs to people who are in your safe circle.

Thank you Nicole. Ok now. So many harsh chemicals in everyday products. Gotta give it more thought I guess.

Hi Nicole! And all on the site. You've been in my thoughts and good wishes.

I've been recovering from a reaction to laundry detergent. Ugh! I think we get tired when we're already going through things. And need to take better care of ourselves. I hope you are all well and doing what you can each day. Have a blessed day!

So sorry mc @mc6844 that you are dealing with this reaction. I hope you find some products that your body doesn't reject. At least you have found the culprit and we are fortunate that they make so many kinds of products these days to choose from.

Today here in MA  it's a good day to get outside and start to look for signs of Spring..Forsythia is in full bloom so are the Daffodils and Azaleas..Get some yard work done if you're up to it or just sit with a cup of tea and enjoy the sounds and surroundings...I am making a mental list of things I hope to start like planting flowers in my planters and perhaps spray painting a worn out plastic chair in a cheerful color...Hope your day has possibilities..

Today I have to go by my NEW Eye to pick up the paperwork I will need to fill out for my 8am appointment tomorrow. Yes, 8am and they want you there 15 minutes EARLY.  😱😱😱

 

I had gotten an automated phone call day before yesterday to go to their website to register. NO spot to register. Just a list of stuff to printout and fill in. NO printer and had planned on going to Library, but not in the mood to deal with their printer.  🙄🙄🙄

 

So called and asked IF I could pick them up. Some places mail stuff or allow you to complete online. Not them. What a pain!

 

HOPE I sleep tonight. Lol, don't need to arrive looking like I have a hangover or do drugs (donot drink or do drugs).

 

Rainy, yucky day today and tomorrow.

 

Everyone, FIND YOUR PEACE.

I'm surprised Nicole @SummerIsTooHOT that you extended your lease into 2025 with that kind of neighbor! I can only hope the next year goes by quickly for you!
