Today’s gratitudes and blog: I love love love to Smile.
- I am grateful for feeling better. I love being healthy enough to recover quickly.
- I am grateful to myself for taking a me day.
- I am grateful for wonderful uplifting friends.
I woke in the night for a couple hours and read. I woke again at 7am. I was still feeling congested and was considering taking another day off. Angel woke up, she sat on her potty and didn’t immediately get off like she has been. She pee’d and pooped. Yay!! We did a happy potty dance.
We took a shower and got dressed. I drank 3 young coconut waters and immediately felt much much better. Woohoo for coconut water! I made a 64oz. papaya, mango, lemon, fresh oj smoothie and a banana, raspberry, celery smoothie. Then I made a batch of spicy kale chips and put them in the dehydrator. I was thinking about riding my bike to the greenhouse but decided to rest my body as much as possible today
I drove to the greenhouse and dropped of Savana Storm’s lunch on the way. I worked at the greenhouse for a couple hours. I wanted to get to the grocery store before working for George so I left a little early. The drive was nice. Angel slept and I listened to classical music.
I got everything I needed at the store. I love interacting with people out in public, especially sharing my smile. I love love love to smile. I had some fun quick conversations with people I came in contact with. One young man and his dad were looking at huge stuffed monkeys. I asked him if the monkey was for him. He laughed and said no! He said he was thinking about getting it for his girlfriend who loves monkeys. I assured him that it would be a great gift. What teenage girl wouldn’t love a huge stuffed monkey?!?!
I paid for my items and made it to George’s only a couple minutes late. George was feeling down today. He played with Angel while I went to the store for him. When I got home I drank my mango medley smoothie. Angel rolled around the house in her walker. She loves her walker. I did laundry and cleaned the kitchen. I called my mom and didn’t talk long…she was going on about deadly mosquitos and whatever else is on the news… Yesterday I decided that it wasn’t a kind thing for me to politely listen to people complain. I decided it was kind for me to politely end the conversation and spend my time in peace and contentment. So I did just that and it was empowering.
After work I listened to classical music on the drive home and drank my other smoothie. I am having a couch surfer stay at my place tonight. His name is Paul and he is traveling through 48 states by bicycle. As I arrived into town I passed him on his bicycle. I stopped and introduced myself and told him I would see him at my place.
At home I unloaded the car and Paul showed up. I showed him his room and we briefly talked. My friend Ben stopped by to put coolant into my cars a/c system. We had a quick chat while he did that.
I made a couple batches of kale chips and then went to eat with Paul. We had a fantastic conversation. I enjoyed hearing about his experiences and appreciated him sharing some of his knowledge. I had a wonderful time. We came back to my place and had fun conversing some more. I played with Angel on the floor while we talked and she loved that.
It was getting late so Angel and I read stories and went to bed. She nursed but didn’t fall asleep. She is being a monkey baby and crawling all over me.
