MIAGD: Returning to the old… or new

MIAGD: Make it a great day

This 68-degree and just-enough-breeze morning is rather jolly and the crew trimming trees on the east side of Shroyer Road adds a new layer of color to the typical score of birds, rustling leaves, traffic, and the occasional barking when anyone walks too near the house, even if unseen.

No plans.

Last summer was preoccupation with Mother and I accomplished only the bare necessities. This past year has barely altered the minimal requirements.

Before the newly adopted life of depressive-driven withdrawal, I attended to house chores daily, keeping up with everything so my days off were entirely free for me and the sons.

I’m slowly easing back into the preferred life management. It feels good.

The pandemic has incorporated a new focus and some applicable measures that I’ve truly come to value. I feel more energized with this new way of thinking and the new lease on life and career.

I’ve always been a self evaluator. I love finding new things to learn, different ways of doing things with the same or better results, various ways of making life simpler or more exciting.

When my niece was visiting, Tuesday, she thought it was cool that with one button my entire living room is lit and one wall of lighting is on a timer (not currently in use since there are no visitors). Walking around to turn on all the lights before lessons was a tad busy; so I connected all the lighting fixtures onto a Bluetooth control. For nighttime, I’ve strategically placed motion sensor lights so that as I approach a darkened area my way will be lit. The upside is that I don’t have to remember to go back and turn off lights in rooms I’m not in.

I must always keep active, even if it is dropping into comfortable seating with reading, documentaries, podcasts, or loving on one or all of the pooches.

On to the day!

Make it a great day!
