So last night I ended up in bed with a smile on my face by 10 pm.
No big party animal here, but I slept. It felt great. For whatever reason when I woke up at 5:30 am I thought – BEACH!
Sunrise on the Carolina Coast is one of the most beautiful gifts of life you can view, if you can break away from your daily schedule to catch it!
I don’t regret it a bit, but I came home with hopes of doing so many things with the advance on the day. Breakfast at a favorite spot, a home convention, pet gala, take Baxter to the dog park since he loved it last week, maybe even get a start on a few applications I need to get in. Clean the house, spruce up the bird cages, grocery shop, meet a couple of friends. It was chilly so when I got back home, I cuddled up under a blanket & hopped on the laptop….
then around 11 am I woke back up!
But I did get a few things done around the house, and got in a few applications for a couple of volunteer positions. When working full time it was just too much to try to volunteer any more than I already was, but it hit me this morning – why not now? Sure there are plenty of things to do around the house & time with family is going to be key while I can get it, but nothing stopping me now.
Thankfully they are quicker about responding than a paying gig, so it looks like I have found a way to give back while I am in transition. Can’t wait! More details on that to come.
Even managed to venture to a couple of resale shops, but nothing worth seeing there. Just made me want to take a shower afterward. Funny how some are so nice & some just gross. Not kidding one I went in today had a couple of canisters with leftovers in them! One had a clumped line of sugar at the bottom & the other… who knows what that stuff was! Nothing came home from either place! eek! But 2 new places checked out.
Now more applying, less mind wandering & then its off to shower & dinner plans at Pizzetta’s! Which is turned into a new favorite! Can’t wait! Love my Saturdays!
