Long Day, but happy ending…

Today, I did it! I finished the 0.5 miles for the 5K run for WordPress.

There’s that cute monkey again!

It feels good to accomplish something and the exercise has made me feel better, too. I worked on changing the bed/pillows (quite a task for me) and worked hard on the computer on various tasks.

A good friend helped cheer me up some and I cheered her up as well. It’s always nice when that’s mutual.

Friends cheer each other up.

I am heading to bed just a bit earlier than the last few nights. Hopefully, that means better rest and getting up a bit earlier tomorrow. We shall see.

The day ahead is busy.

The Day Ahead
by Scott L Vannatter

Tasks and jobs used to flow
one into the other, a sea of work.
Never ending, always beginning
Demands, requirements, costs

The illness slowed my time of work
stopping it at one place and causing me grief.
But, in the end, that sweet end that comes finally,
I find a rest, a solace where the color of money pales,
and peace, harmony, and a sense of new worth exist.

I am happy; I am tired; I am not broken; I am me.

      Ants were always one of my very favorite insects…such a life…and so clean!
      Used to watch them for a long time when I was little. Life was different back then!
      Thanks, Soma, love it when you stop by,
