7:35 am: An ambulance siren breaks the quiet of on-its-way-to-being another H-O-T one; I sigh-deeply-and think: now would the best time to go for a walk – it’s only 80. Only 80! But, I don’t have the energy to be up and at ’em…need my tea and besides, in just an hour – at 8:30 am – is the last Mindful Monday Zoom session. And then at noon, another Z: Daily Pages and tonight, a 3rd Z: a gathering of scrapbooker – from around the world – for a “crop,” -we’re all working on our individual projects, share tales, information, answer the occasional how-to question. I can say, without a hesitation, I’m on Zoom a lot – you think? – and I wonder how we might have coped with Covid-19 without Zoom and similar programs. Were these technological advances created, designed ’cause another pandemic was due? Know doubt Dr. Spock would know the answer to that question [smile].
8:05 am: Quiet resumes… just the ambient house sounds one hears and the occasional car driving by. I take another sip of tea and let its warmth and taste linger a bit before I swallow, warming my insides as it travels to my tummy. I smile as I type these words and realize that slowly I am developing qwerty skills – I hasten to add that auto-fill/correct also helps a bit, too.
I glance at the calendar and note that tomorrow is the monthly share/linkup about our 2020 One Little Word experience – here on this blog. I look forward to reading yours. And if you are a new reader to this blog, have chosen a word and wish to join in, welcome!
8:20 am: Now I must get ready for MindfulMonday! Have a great day!

I journaled from my berth in the boat this morning and I think I’m on to a new Habit! Quiet, cozy, cool, and my own little view of the sky and treetops through the hatch! 😉 Happy Monday!
PS – gorgeous flowers, they lift my heart!
Oh my – 80 degrees so early – ugh! You are on Zoom a lot. Is it fun? I feel my introvert side come out when I think about it. Enjoy and drink a lot of water!
It was a warm start here as well. Interior hibernation is in effect.
The flowers are bright and beautiful. Hope you managed to stay mindful while avoiding the hot, hot weather.
These summer days when it’s already hot early in the morning are not my favorite, though I mind them less now that I don’t have to walk to work in them! I hope you get some relief from the heat soon. I’m looking forward to my walk later today, when the humidity is supposed to be much lower.
I journal right when I wake up and sip my coffee in the dark. It is heavenly!! I live in the country and I rarely hear sirens…
