I’m slowly but surely working on a “to do” list that primarily consists of small projects that no one else really cares about. However, the completion of each one gives me a sense of clearing my mind and my environment of distractions so that I can work on something bigger and more important. Hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to do that very soon.
I’m also dealing with the fact that although I’m stronger and healthier than I was last year, pain is still a constant part of my life. I’m not whining, simply stating the facts in order to encourage those of you who face similar issues. Each day I just try to manage my pain and get things done! This morning I woke up at 1am and had to sleep on the couch in order to get comfortable. That lasted an hour and I moved to the recliner. That kept me comfortable for almost two hours and I got up. I managed to go through most of my morning routine and even worked in the yard for half an hour. In a couple of hours I’m going to go to the movie with my husband. I may or may not be able to sit there in comfort, but I AM going to sit there.
I enjoyed hearing a report this morning that “sedentary thinkers” generally have high intelligence and can learn to balance their lives with more activity. It also explained that we tend to shy away from social activities because they distract us from our intellectual pursuits. We like people, but we need extra time to think. LOL I need extra time to get things done!
One of the projects that I completed this morning was changing my photo albums here on the blog. Look in the left column and you’ll see the new ones. I have one more that I plan to add. And yes, for those of you who are from Caddo, I am also working on updating that website. I’ll be taking new photos next week.
I’m also learning to use the new camera so I can take more bird pictures here at the house. The distance from my window to the feeder is a little far for the shorter lens on the old camera. It takes me quite a while to learn anything new, especially anything techie, but I’ll get it done…
