no dashing thru snow

crisp and clear

With the lock down just a few days away, I forced myself to get up and out early enough to miss the regular shoppers. After dropping off a bag for the food bank, I began to shop for the next couple of week. Unusual for me is soup… lots of soups.. I’ve lost my appetite, for whatever reason, I don’t seem to want to cook. The last two grocery trips, have seen me stocking up on canned goods. Yes even veggies! Me, who always wanted fresh so I could steam and cook them just the way I like them. I now have cans of veggies on my counter waiting to be put away. OK selective, I only like a couple of standard veggies … at one time I would have turned my nose up at any canned vegetable. Preferring if not fresh, than frozen.

Age, the pandemic, isolation, whatever it is… the desire for a fresh salad, or a steamed side dish of broccoli or cauliflower has poofed. I’m opening cans of French style green beans, or south western kernel corn and eating right from the can!!!! how gross is that. I even got tins of mixed peas and carrots. I grudgingly have to admit, at this time in my life, I’m enjoying them. repeat Cold right out of the can. Thank goodness my Mother is not around to read this, and if I’m lucky my sister will not read today’s post. We all have to adapt. Breakfast is Irish oatmeal with buttermilk and some banana.

LOL as a friend once said, he looks at the picture(s) especially if there is too much text!

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. when you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do and appreciate them that much more.

The shortcut to progress is to listen with a humble mind. If you are stuck in your own ways, you will eventually become bogged down. Let’s remember to be humble, learning what we can f rom the knowledge, advice and suggestions of others.

Things that happen to us all have a meaning. Everything that happens to us happens for a reason. Each and every occurrence is a chance for you to improve yourself.

  1. Hi, I hope it’s a phase that will pass. Your breakfast sound good though πŸ™‚
    Try to get out in nature if you are able too. Even for a short time. It will rejuvenate your mind and soul, and make you want to live again. I am sorry for the isolation, it is especially tough for those who live alone. I will be thinking of you today!

    • aww thank you.. usually I go out to the conservation area, there are lots of birds ,, I put out a few feeders and go there and fill them. I enjoy the time there. l talk to the trees, and forest “creatures”… the birds are used to me and fly around and often land on me. Its just the last week or so.. I feel run down.. it will pass. thank you for your caring thoughts and words. Best wishes to you and yours for the holidays.

      • That sounds peaceful. I would love to retreat to such a place every now and again. You are definitely of a sound mind, you will be OK. πŸ™‚
        Thank you for the wishes.
