Did I say I wanted more fun? Well fun certainly was had! Several lunches with friends, club monthly meeting which was a wonderful performance of Opera and Broadway songs by a professional performer, book club, a lovely dinner out with Hubby, dog park visits with the party pup, lots of books read and more.
I flew to Berkeley and spent a long weekend with my son, DIL and granddaughter. Good long talks with my son. Laughs with DIL. Swim lesson observation, working on puzzles, listening to beginner violin practice, picking garden produce, helping a large Amazon box become a “kitty (and child) castle and mail station”, baking a cake and more with granddaughter and family.
Experiences and Giving: I spent freely to fly to Berkeley, take us all out to dinner, buy puzzles for my granddaughter, etc. In line with give freely, I bought raffle tickets at our club meeting and won a homemade pumpkin bread. It is quite tasty.
Forward motion includes decluttering now done in 10 to 15 minute bursts, planning a club sale at the November district meeting, shifting how I keep the house clean so there are smaller bursts of targeted cleaning instead of the dreaded cleaning day and so on.
Engaging Project: We are once again seriously thinking about moving to the Berkeley area as we imagine our lives for the next 10 to 20 years and think we would like very much to be physically closer to family who indeed do want us closer. A big decision. It would give me a big project though!
