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.

". . . always the wish that you may find patience enough in yourself to endure, and simplicity enough to believe; that you may acquire more and more confidence in that which is difficult, and in your solitude among others." - Rainer Maria Rilke

It all began on Wednesday. Instead of getting my writing done, I chose to do a deep scan on my L-top. Big No No, in my books. The scan took 6.5 hours. Now it did find one Trojan and 121 adware cookies. By the time all of this was complete, I had no desire to sit and write.

Then on Thursday, I chose to go with Michael to his eye exam. We didn't know if whether or not he would have his eyes dilated or not, well they weren't. Michael did get to pick out a frame which had to be big enough for three bifocals. One section is for distance, one is for working on the computer, and the third is for close reading. Now we wait two weeks. When we returned home I was tired and took a nap. By the time I woke up, I did not feel like writing so I didn't.

On Friday, Michael had another doctor's appointment. I could have chosen to stay home and do some puttering around the house. But, again I had the urge to be with Michael so I went with him instead.

The other reason is that it is so beautiful outside, it felt good to be out. Yes, I know I am a very bad girl going for the good stuff instead of being indoors.

Walking Update

I have walked every day this week. This is a big deal for me. Including today, I have walked six miles.

I do believe this activity has helped my emotional state. I am finding myself calmer. I am more flexible in what goes on in my day.

Since I've been walking most every day, I have also lost three pounds. This is a BIG hooray for me.

Photos Galore

Today I found some mailboxes that intrigued me.

I don't know if I have shown this one before but this mail box post seems to be missing its box.

Mail box on links 8 28 12

Here is a set of three boxes with some type of succulent hiding the base:

This is one of my favorites. I can only imagine how the post people handle this one:

Mailboxes and ivy 9 1 12

Here is a very regal looking post for the mailboxes:

And, for my last mailbox photo, this one doesn't show the jade plant, which is a succulent, very well. It seems the jade plant is attempting to take over the post here:

These photos come to you by me walking by myself. Although I have to say the Mr. has been gracious with my having to stop to take a picture. Gotta love that guy.

Happy September 1 to one and all.
