A rather slow day. We did have meditations this morning and then Travis and I met for breakfast. I went on a walk after that but from 11:00 to now I did not one stitch of work.
I did do a first. It was sad but I got through it. Gail and I often would go down to a picnic place on the Mississippi River called hidden falls. Well I stopped at the store, just like Gail and I would do and got food---I then headed down to hidden falls for my picnic. I, myself and me were all there. No Gail and really no fun but I got through it and I may do it again sometime. I should look up the word picnic but I think it may imply 2 or more people!!! Regardless I did it and the "first" is over with. I should have kept a log of all the picnics we went on from the time we were married. I know there were 100's and maybe 1000's.
I find that I have to force myself to do things and then after the first time it is not so difficult. I have been in kind of a mini funk this week and it would be so easy to stay home and isolate oneself from the world. Perhaps I did that in a very small way this afternoon but 1/2 day of it is not so bad. I just need to be careful to not do that toooooo much.
I did not sleep well at all last night. I was so pleased as it seemed my sleeping problems were behind me and perhaps they are. I hope last night was just last night and not a pattern so will see tonight.
I can not say enough about the weather, the trees etc. The sight and the smell of the blossoms is almost intoxicating.
Now that I fixed my internet I was even able to post some pictures on Facebook. That was surprising. I do not look at it very much but I had tried to post pictures in the past and I would get kicked off internet.
I got some dishes done today. I had not washed dishes all week and there were not too many but nice to get some of them done. Certainly makes the kitchen look better.
I am debating if I should go in the shop tonight or read a book. I may toss a coin!
