some things...

It was a good weekend.  Because I found the time to do some of the things I love to do.  Things that fill me up and feed my soul.

Read.  I just can't quite read from my iPad or other book-downloading device.  I've done it and just don't enjoy it as much. I love to feel a book in my hands and turn real paper pages... I also like to underline things I read that I especially like...  and I can't get used to highlighting the words on a screen.  But I got a book that I'm loving and curled up on the sofa with a blanket and ... mmmmm.......

It was a cold weekend.  It even snowed some....  The fireplace was especially cozy.  Add to that a cup of honey vanilla camomile tea and it was all I needed to feel at peace.  Yeah, I have pretty simple desires these days!

I took a walk or two .. and dusted off our elliptical and made it a priority to exercise first thing in the morning.  I can't do everything these days that I'd like to do...  but I can do SOME things.  And it's the SOME things that can make all the difference.


  1. Kathi, you had me with the feel of the book. I enjoy reading that way so much more. You're right, it is the SOME things that make the difference.

  2. I can relate too. I like reading so much more when I can feel the paper and turn the pages myself. I enjoy magazines too. A book beats more plastic any day.

  3. I know what you mean about the book. I kind of collect children's books, and since all of our grandchildren are out of state, the chances that they'll even be read to them are slim. But for some reason I just love them. Sometimes I take one or two when I visit them. These days I have all of my books on a Kindle - that way I'm never without a book - but it still isn't satisfying like a real book.

  4. The simple joys in life are the best, fully agree with you!
