usually, my days have a sort of theme. Not today – a complete hodgepodge. So I think it was good, but I can’t really tell for sure. And I still have things to do: water the seedlings and do Abby’s nails: top of list.
As is usual in the summer, with the sun coming up early and the daylight poking its way into the bedroom before 5 a.m., I was up early, early enough to get the laundry done, sheets on the line, and house cleaned long before my first interview at 9 a.m.
And then walks with Abby in the hot sun (I love it!) And then an unexpected visit from a neighbour to discuss neighborhood preparedness in case of disaster. And it seems I am going to help produce a brochure etc. etc.
And now I have to water seedlings again. Or did I already mention that? Meanwhile, my mind has been traveling along its convoluted brain corridors, making mental lists of what I have to do before our camping trip on Friday. Mental lists: not always a good idea. But then, I figure I’ll remember the important things.
Lots to do.
Importantly, I have been coming across a fair amount of good news on the environmental and political fronts today. I keep telling myself that it’s important to focus on what is going right and what I can do to make a positive difference. I know that focussing on the negative is easy. The media is almost completely disaster oriented and it would be simple to throw my hands up in despair.
I refuse to do that. I am determined to celebrate every step we take in the right direction and to add my footsteps to that path. They may be small steps, but I know they make a difference, even if that difference is not immediately apparent.
