Tuesday,sunshine and glue

Guess who went to bed and didn’t plug her cell phone in to recharge, first two guesses don’t count.  Usually no big deal, however, in an efficient mode these past months, I’ve been doing a tidy up.  You know how we can get when the season is changing, especially from winter to spring. “We never use our land line” said I. let’s get rid of it, we both have a cell phone, that will work out just fine.


Good idea, right.. the hands free phones stationed all over the house for ease of access, went bye-bye. I admit there was a feeling of relief as one more item on my want to do list, got a tick mark beside it.  For every action there is a reaction. I had my cell phone number changed to the main home phone number,  so that worked out fine, more or less.  Calls I got for “the husband” simply were rerouted to his number.  BUT what happens then when our phones are not nearby, and we don’t hear them ring (ah HA! I got a blue tooth thingie, and I can answer mine from most parts of the house as long as the phone is within “striking” distance ,1,2,ever 3 rooms away ..  NOT if you are not wearing the bluetooth


Or if you are busy working on some project, like making greeting cards for the Church sale coming up in June (18th) and you are working with a sticky glue, that sticks to you, but not the card stock!!! The handy hands free that used to be by the desk is gone, your phone is in need of a change, and your blue tooth  gadget is ??? somewhere on your other desk in the clutter there.


That golden moment when you remember, your new set up, the cell phone has call answer and voice mail, YAY, so what your fingers and hands are full of sticky glue, you phone will take a message.  All I need do, is find Hubby to get the SSS (Skin so Soft- Avon)  great for taking away sticky stuff .. I’m sure somewhere there will be a website that will tell you of all it is claimed to be good for.  For us, it’s getting the glue/sticky off.


The start of a brand new day

open the window wide

take in all that comes your way

for only today

will you live the golden moments

for tomorrow, they will

have flown away.

the two compliment each other

and become ONE

new Zealand, Abel Tasminclear path ahead

nothing in the way

great, you can’t wait to wander

into the great beyond

you  stop to ponder

what to take with you

while you re away

a whole day just to explore

how grand a plan is that

almost out the door

oh no, the phone** is ringing

do you keep going or do you answer

what news could the call be bringing


you could just keep going out the door

after all, a few seconds later,

you wouldn’t have heard that phone ring

some days, you have to keep going

if the call is important, they will call back

there are times, when

you really really have to put YOU first

we forget, that we are not infallible

or we think we might miss out on something


give thanks for your blessings

live each moment

YOU are all so very precious to me.

** if you use a cell phone, turn it off


*blog-a wandering memory (Abel Tasmin – NZ)

hello? hallo? Bonjour?

There was a time when we could not get away from the phone unless we left the house, the insistent noise it would make would drive one crazy.  Today, things have improved, we have the ability to turn down the sound, turn it off, or put lines on hold. With cells phones, we can put them on vibrate, or turn them off completely.

These are options today, but from the research I’ve done, asking friends and even strangers if they ever turn off their phones, the answer is no.  Even at work in meetings, out on dates, in theaters their phones are on vibrate, so that they can know if a call comes in, and as soon as they can, they check it out.  I was even surprised to learn that in families with children, almost every child has his/her own phone.

phone, shower

OK this is not a working phone, it is what is called an “off the hook” telephone shower head.  I’m told it is very popular, what is this fascination with being always connected to a telephone, cell phone or otherwise,  It has become such a problem in North America that statistics show that more deaths are caused by people unwilling to disconnect from their phones while driving, that the death toll is raising. Distracted accidents and deaths are said to outnumber the causes of accidents/ death due to driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs. Wow. HELLO ???????

phone off the hook

Can you unplug for a day, can you take time for you without being chained/tied to the demands/wants of the world around you?? We have choices, remember, “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal”  We all need time on our own, quiet time, re-energizing time, make time please, self-love, taking care of  you and your health, is something only you can do.,
