Things are so stressful,  so out of whack, what do you do to escape for time?


In the morning I put on a pot of coffee and while I'm waiting I  take my Dog for a long walk. That first cup just makes the morning for me . In the evening I feed the cat and sit down on the back steps and pet them for a while. The dog and the cats love you without any strings attached. They make you feel better about life and helps drain away some of that stress.

Beautiful scenery.


Today I went to the State Fair of Texas. There was a garden exhibit showing some of our native plants and trees. It was a walk through exhibit set up with model trains running all over it , a delight to see. Saw a Longhorn steer that made me smile. Nature was on display everywhere, so I too enjoyed some beautiful scenery.

Since I gave up working for a living, stress hasn't been a problem, but just going for a walk in our woods with the family dog is heaven for half an hour. Beyond that, revisiting a good movie on HULU or NETFLIKS beats watching the news any day. Driving out to the lake to go fishing with my grandsons, then taking a hike around the lake is probably gone until next spring (got cold all of a sudden - funnything that)

I pet my dogs or go down to the barnyard and pet the goats.  They love the attention and it takes my mind of everything else.

I escape by weeding my flower beds. Totally takes my mind off everything.  I have lots of flowers to weed.  Do some about once a week.  Great escape.

I love to take a walk in a local park in the woods.  It's so quiet and peaceful. It's  a wonderful place to stop  to think of all the good things in your life and escape your problems. Also there is a special benefit  to this park.  It is a dog park  and after losing my very special dog and cat I enjoy petting and scratching the ears of all the friendly dogs I meet there.

I was fly fishing @ Abraman's creek. At 65 I'm still active. I scuba dive, boating and fish a lot offshore, which will probably be changing to inshore in the not too distant future, still hunt and have a 27' travel trailer. We enjoy E. TN where we have a second home... and that where I do most of my fly fishing and hunting. I guess I don't do moments much, but someday when I slow down, but not yet...12439154_804204323059786_2250121145091658090_n.jpg14369990_960991604047723_1172943272099020506_n.jpg17424874_1103842546429294_1307179207357871585_n.jpg
