sometimes mondays | 10.19.20 …

Self-care is a deliberate choice to gift yourself with people, places, things, events, and opportunities that recharge our personal battery and promote whole health — body, mind, and spirit.” ~ Pass It On

Today, this morning, for a brief moment, I saw the birds flocking towards the sunrise …they fly so fast that I can’t train my camera eye to catch before they are out of its view…but, that’s OK, I tell myself : the image is indelibly imprinted in my mind. I watch for Canadian Geese – so far, I’ve seen none.

Life is slowly adjusting to the new normal – a term we hear and say too often. This morning, the temps dropped low enough to kick in both the furnace and the heat pump – both are working on all cylinders. Thankfully. Especially after replacing the A/C-HeatPump this summer at ruinous costs. We’re set for winter and it appears, based on the ten-day forecast that we may not have a brief reprise of summer weather/temps before November.

This week’s calendar is pretty clear – save for my Daily Pages 12 N Zoom session, still very much a delightful break in the day. More Zoom sessions scattered throughout the week. And as I look at the clock, I think I’d best get a move on for my quilting group’s meeting in just an hour – @ 10 am.

Have a great day and week!

  1. What a beautiful morning sky! (I’ve seen plenty of geese lately so maybe you’ll see some soon?) Enjoy your week and the Zoom calls. I have my knitting group this afternoon and it’s always fun to see what everyone is up to (I’m still knitting the swatch I started yesterday).


  2. So pleased that you have got your winter heating sorted – being cold is a miserable experience. Sorry to read about the cost, though :(. You sound creatively content, with nice things to look forward to, and plenty of space to do them in. Hoping it’s a lovely week and that you and Norman are both well.


  3. I am jealous of your beautiful morning sky! It’s a gloomy, rainy day here, making for a dark start to the day, but judging from the noises I am hearing outside, the birds are enjoying it (and we certainly need the rain). I hope you get a bit of sunshine to help you warm up a bit as the day goes on!


  4. No furnace humming here… yet. Maybe this week. We shall see. Your skies this morning though… gorgeous! It was so dreary here… with lots of rain.


  5. What a beautiful morning sky, such lovely soft gentle colours. We have a wood burning stove in our house, it is not our only heating but it does a good job of heating the house. We have been lighting it every evening for a few weeks now, it is lovely to sit by in on a cold dark evening.


  6. We’ve needed the furnace quite a bit so far this fall — lots of very chilly days and frost. I’m always so grateful for a furnace that hums in that pleasing kind of way! Enjoy your week, Honoré!
