Monday Musings

I am in a funk!  I have been in a funk!!!!  I thought taking a few days off might shake me out of my funk??? is Monday, and I am still in a funk!!!  I was going to completely revamp my blog.  Change the name, possibly delete my existing blog, and start a brand new one, new name, new look, new start.  I have been thinking and thinking on a new name.  I don't feel like my life has been very "sweet" lately.  I thought about Season of my Life, because after all, isn't that what it is?  The good, the bad, and everything in between.  I am not one to blog about the not so great stuff.  For some I know that posting an occasional blog rant can be cathartic.  Not for me.  I am making a minor name change.  Just shortening it.  Simplify.  That is what I want to do in my life.  Simplify.
Here are a couple of pictures I took recently.
That is a male Western Bluebird.  They are nesting in my front yard.  Today, the 5th and final egg will be laid by his mate, and Mama Blue will begin sitting on the nest.
And this is my cat Maui who loves to "stalk" the birds that I so love to feed and watch in my yard.  I have a bell on her to help alert the birds as she comes near.
Yesterday I sat for 2 glorious hours in a beach chair by the pool.  With a Paradise iced tea, a stack of new magazines, a visor to protect my face, and #80 slathered on my spreading vitiligo spots.  My feet dangling in the crisp water.  Toe tapping to the Country music tunes I had filling the air.  Thinking about nothing in particular, and everything in general.  Chatting for a long while with my Mom via cell.   Thinking about the delightful movie that my daughter Gennifer took me to see on Saturday night, Letters To Juliet.  For 2 glorious hours, I was energized.

Simplify! I love it. love it love it love it.

The older I get, the more and more I try to simplify things. In every aspect of my life too. I think that is a great title for your blog.

I like your blog background and new header picture too.

And 2 hours by the pool with an iced beverage sounds GLORIOUS. Glad you got to do that. You certainly deserve it.

I so understand your mood. Simplify, is a wonderful way to go. I, too, like to keep my blog about cheery fun things. Trust me, nobody would feel like listening to the things I COULD rant about. LOL
