During the night decided to purchase larger mailbox.
So true that I am purchasing more from Amazon as it saves
time and cost resulting in more small boxes being delivered.
Present full time mail carrier is so kind but is also getting older
and in time I may have this substitute as the new one to deliver mail.
It is difficult for me to keep my mind settled. Seems that my goal
for returning to a simpler life style has not happened. I have continual thoughts
of what can I eliminate at this time. Not making much progress and the to do
list just grows and grows. Excited about Spring and want to try gardening in
more pots and adding some Kale, brussel sprouts and peas to my garden.
Also at present time seems there is much
going on with my family. I have made the statement for years about giving them
roots and wings and guess their wings are taking them everywhere.
One will arrive home this weekend from Africa and her mom thinks will be a life changing
experience. Another arrives soon from Thailand, another leaves for Jamaica today.
Two grandchildren, one in Washington DC and another in New York still seeking career
opportunities. One will be visiting next month from Florida and still another one
I am told is in Poland. My youngest granddaughter will have a birthday next month
and it seems like yesterday she was born. Over and over the thought arises, time is
going by so fast, will you just sit down and do nothing.....
All of this going on and the matriarch is concerned over finding someone to
install a new mailbox she will soon purchase. Also has thoughts of trying to write
less on her journal or stop altogether. As time goes on do not want to sound boring,
share more about aging and health and it seems that this may happen. But then the
thought arises that this is how her children and grandchildren keep up with her.
Also very aware that many outside of family that read her sharing are younger
and there might be something worthy passed on.
Enough shared by one who was not going to write on this early cold and rainy morning....
