No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"When I'm confused, I just try to do the next right thing." - Cathy Stone - Karen Casey, May 25 - "A Woman's Spirit: More Meditations for Women"

I have had Microsoft Outlook for some time. I have used it off and on over the years but I always became irritated and would stop using it.

This last time into the realms of Outlook, I have finally found a way to make it useful. The task list has become my friend. I have learned how to make a to do list into a rolling over list in this program.

I used to write out my lists daily, then I would print them out daily but now that we do not have a printer, I was at a loss on how to keep my tasks in an orderly fashion.

Using the task program, I can type them in, make a note of how often I want to do this, mark a priority item, and can check them off when I complete the task. Now I ask you, does it get any better than this?

The one thing that always irritated me was the reminders. This would happen when I didn't open the program for a week or more and when I did, then all the reminders would pop up to be dealt with. Now, I uncheck that box. I can see what needs to be done and which ones are a priority and work my way through the list as I see fit.

Whoo hoo, another computer program put to good use!

When I awoke this, I had my mind already set against walking today. Nope, no way was I leaving the house.

So, I meditated for 30 minutes. By time's end, I had decided I would go for a very short walk. Well, 54 minutes later and a few photographs found me back home, so much for a short walk.

Below are some of the still lifes that caught my eye and not a flower among them.

Since I live at the beach, this is how old surf boards are used for decorations.


Here I seem to have a theme going with photos of mail boxes.

This one caught my eye first. It looks like a single sentry on duty.


Here I was going for the tree. Then I noticed the mail boxes. This must be a rough neighborhood since there are four sentries on duty 



As much as I didn't want to leave the house, I was glad to get out and find my photos.

The rest of the day was spent at the food bank and then to my evening meeting. For dinner I had stuffed mushrooms from the food bank and boy were they good. And that was the end of my day.
