Just Musing for a While

Hello my fellow travelers in cyber-land! It has been a long time hasn’t it? So what have you all been doing in this interesting “pause” in time? I have been wanting to get back on here, so I thought;  why not now? As you can see from this picture, Arizona is blooming with promise and we are in the 3 digits already in some areas! How about that? It’s better than cold and freezing any day….

So how are you Friends and Family? Ya know, it hasn’t bothered me at all to be in a place where I’m almost forced to think differently and look at my life in new ways. A divine reset can be a very good thing if one looks on the positive side,  don’t you think? Ones priorities can be re-ordered and changed for the better; that’s how I see it anyway.  It’s like, how am I spending my time? What can I do that is more time-constructive than I have been doing? I really don’t like to waste time and yet I don’t want to be the Energizer Bunny either. I’m now looking at time in a whole new way! I can’t get back the time I have wasted….ugh! So I conclude; I have to make some changes.

How about relationships? Have I been up on that? Am I paying attention to people that I care for? Thank God I haven’t experienced anyone I know perishing with Covid-19 or anything else, but I am thinking;  what if I had? How would I feel if I had neglected that person in my life;  makes me think. I don’t want to live like that as if I don’t care when I do, know what I mean? Life isn’t all about me and I’m just now thinking…this too has got to change. I must live in the moment but really not as…. “dare I say it” selfishly as I have?  Lord help me to look more outwardly with a view towards the ones around me and that I care for! How can I change that? It’s true that I have personal time constraints but how do I get around that and still be responsible and helpful, loving and considerate to my family that lives nearby or far, or my friends?  There are people that I really want to spend more time with and things are changing. I don’t think that when we come out of this that it should go back to the same o’…same o’ thing. I’d like to think that we learned something valuable and how to shift some things that needed shifting but we were too “busy” to notice.

Now,  I’ve been sharing more on the serious side and I’m really not finished with that but I see that it’s for another post. What about the creative side at this time? Oh, I did get to work on that part a bit and changed my background for this Blog and the design; got to work on that, so far so good. And, I changed my backgrounds for my emails too;  a lot more colorful;  so that’s good and I have also been out walking because it’s not a total shut-down here, I just don’t go too far. It’s been very nice if I get out in the morning when it’s light and relatively cool. I definitely want to do more of that…..look at this picture; nice neighborhood!

This is so beautiful, don’t you think? Blue sky, Palm trees on a calm morning. I can’t wait to get out there! I don’t want to walk it alone either; I want some fun friends to join me like I used to in Atlanta. We would go walking in the park together every Tues. morning; so….I’m thinking of that too…..look! Nice picture for inspiration

I’m thinking of ways to make this happen…..who out there loves to walk? Doesn’t this just make you want to get out there??? I know my Sister in Spearfish SD where it isn’t that warm yet, gets out on her horse Walker, and goes for long rides. That is her thing. What about you my Friends? What are you going to be doing when you get to go outside again? Let me know. I mentioned earlier in one of my other posts that I really would like to take Ballet for the stretching and slow movement. I still want to. I will be looking into that as well…..so

These are some of the things going on in my busy mind as I muse this evening. It’s almost 11:30 p.m. but I took a nice nap this afternoon so I’m not doing too bad being up right now. Just thought I would do a new post; about time! I hope I didn’t bore you. I have many things going on in my mind but too many to share for now. One more picture in my closing and thanks for visiting again!

Till next time!

In the next 20 years I believe I will be living the best part of my life and learning to Blog is going to be part of that. My friends and family tell me I should so I will take them up on it and have fun doing so! I'm an "eternal" 70 chronological years old. I have 2 grown Daughters, 3 Grandchildren; 2 girls and a boy, and 2 Great-granddaughters. I am no longer heading toward AZ, I am there and will be in the city I willing be living at just 25 min. from here.. I continue to grow and learn and never stop; especially about knowing my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and living in His Kingdom. I have lots of friends, love to ride motorcycles, read and occasionally watch good movies. I like to stay active so I walk a lot and when I get back to AZ I will re-activate my Gym membership.
