Woke up to 51 degress this morning which is wonderful this time of the year for Florida. I made up my mind I wasn't going to push myself so hard as I have felt really tired this week so decided I needed to relax and recharge my internal batteries. I went over and checked on Dad and came home and got the tv remote programmed in the Florida room and then I made a bagel and sat down and finished a novel while I ate it. Sinful, I never do that but it felt sooo good. Then I cleaned some stuff out of the computer and took time to read the paper (I am usually reading it late in the evening). This afternoon I did catch up my ironing but then I have actually sat out in the Florida room and just relaxed and enjoyed it. I used to sit out there nearly every morning and read the paper but that was before having Dad down here to care for. I plan to do more of this in the coming weeks. I will get my walk in early and then come home and eat breakfast out there and just relax and enjoy life. Doesn't do me any good to be retired if I can't get some enjoyment out of it.
I am going to slow down and stop and smell the roses. Join me Spark friends - together we can enjoy the simple things in life.
