:) Once again I am ready for a clean slate and a new beginning. Some of my habits and routines have served me well and I want to continue them Others need a change and a new month is perfect for that.

:) Thank you to all of you who have continued on this journey with me. You have added so much to my life with your stories, your family adventures, and your wisdom.

:) Be sure to bookmark this page so you can return to it often.

:) Please sign your post with a name or nickname and a general location so we can know each other better.

<3 Barbie in NW WA

My word for 2022 is "continue"--I have lots of good habits and want to continue them.

    Worked (worked extra long since they asked me to do extra prep for tomorrow since I’m not there), then took Jerry home, then went to Dollar General and they had distilled water! Home to start cleaning some. Need to lector at the church tonight

    I loved my clothesline. The sheets would smell so good. The only thing I didn’t put out on the line were towels. Since we moved from the Poconos, none of the homes we have had would allow a clothesline. Also had a clothesline in the furnace room at the house in the Poconos

    Did find out that as an employee of BK, I can get free ice. So when we have the pool party in July, I can get the ice

    Lisa – so glad to hear that everyone is safe and sound

    Margaret – lovely display. Thanks for posting the pics

    Since I don’t have work tomorrow, the plan is to do a Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn DVD and then an AM Yoga (one section)

    So today was a good day! Lee and I went exploring on Pioneer drive where its small unique shops etc. I found a co-op type art shop that used to be located at another location. Before Covid I had taken a class on decorating a light switch with small tiles. At the old location there was a piano out front, and she is inside now. We got reacquainted today. I spent over an hour playing, which did wonders for my frame of mind! Its one of my go to coping mechanisms, and I haven't made use of it for over a year. Not that my frame of mind is suffering, just having 2 sailors overseas can weigh on my heart. So playing the piano is one way to lessen that feeling. The shopkeeper asked if I sang too. I said I do have words to my piano music, but they are words of a gal from the 1980's. It kind of feels funny to spout them now. Then I mentioned that I did sing opera, so she asked me to sing. I sang! Its always nice to do things outside your comfort zone, and erupting into song is one of them. Someone filmed me with their cell phone. So I am out in the world now! I told her if she would like, I could sing at Christmas time. She took my name and phone number. 🙃💖👍
    Thanks Barbie for starting us off right.💖👍

    Bonus: ‘nother load laundry, started budget committee meeting notes.
    Just one thing: back to bupkes
    Workin’ on it: Saturday 142.6, H20x5, active 4:07
    Active April
    30: Make time to run, swim, dance, cycle or stretch today.

    Thank you forever, Barbie for keeping us going!

    Too sleepy to comment much but was so happy to hear:
    Margaret was able to go to the floral art show for the first time since the pandemic,
    Lisa’s family are safe from the tornadoes,
    Beth’s father’s improving.
    Annie 10 squats, well done! Your knee must be feeling better.
    Rebecca do you have a piano in your home?

    Will report April stats (grim) tomorrow.

    Lighter, lovelies!
    Barbara, the Southern Oregon Coastie AHMOD
    2022: Be still and listen.
