Once I leave here at around 9:15 am, spend 2 hours down at exercise, usually 1/2 hour before, 1 hour of exercise, and the another 1/2 hour or a bit less afterwards, it is going on to the Noon hour by the time I arrive back home. Rob had a coffee waiting for me when I came in, and also had all the "pack" out and looked after just before I had arrived.
I absolutely love when there are leftovers for Thursdays Dinners, as it sure saves a lot of time and effort for me when there is.
Then, as always, there was the stack of dishes that needed doing in the sink. This brings to mind what one of the ladies at exercise had said this morning, "be thankful you have dishes that need washing". That really had an impact on me today when it was time to do mine up. This all derived from my VON Volunteer Associate, BJ, whose new word for the week was "mindfulness".
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mindfulness (Pali: sati, Sanskrit: smṛti / स्मृति) in Buddhist meditation.; also translated as awareness) is a spiritual faculty (indriya) that is considered to be of great importance in the path to enlightenment according to the teaching of the Buddha.
I will try to be more "mindful" or "aware" of life or objects which surround me, is what "mindfulness" brings to my mind.
This afternoon brought along with it some paperwork I had to be "mindful" of by addressing, as well as a particular window screen needing a spider removed from it.
Once this little disposal matter had been taken care of, I took myself and Missy Mercedes downtown. I had a couple of items needing some repair sewing done on them (have I ever mentioned before that I DO NOT sew?). It just so happens my friend, who had just had hip replacement a couple of weeks ago, lives right beside the lady who sews. I was able to take my friend a card & plant, as well as have a little visit with her before I dropped of my sewing repairs. Wow, things never usually work out that smooth for me all at one time, what's up with that "sync"? LOL
Afterwards, Missy Mercedes and I had ourselves a walk around a number of very large town blocks. It was and still is such a beautiful weather day out there today.
Back home again, I tackled the cleaning of the screen and the spare bedroom window. Oh my, the water from cleaning the screen was pretty brown once I had given it a good scrubbing with hot water and a brush. Shamefully so ..... ewww.
I had the biggest laugh the other day when I had received our mail.
Also when arriving home from exercise this morning, there was a package on the table. Rob had told me another friend, from my Hometown of Southampton, had won a prize through the Heart & Stroke Foundation, and had wanted to "gift" me his winnings.
