I Am Grateful🙏🏼….


I Meant To Post on ☀ 🙏🏼 Sunday🕒…..

I apologize for the delay, I meant to post this on Sunday…..

It almost doesn’t feel like a Sunday, or the weekend for that matter. Days of the week haven’t been the same. It feels as though I’m operating on different clock then the world around me. It feels as though I’m in a fish bowl all by myself. From the inside looking out, feeling as though I’m missing out on life, yet strangely peaceful on my own. Loved ones check in by phone, but can’t touch. Still I am grateful. I hope this week Christmas, I can spend some quality time with them, that’s the plan. It definitely hasn’t been easy being far away from them, in addition to the shutdown. Still I am grateful.

Thankfully I’ve been occupied with work, which help the weeks go by, regardless of how hectic. It’s been incredibly hectic, and a little stressful because the volume has went up, by eighty percent, and unfortunately we’re one man short. I’ve been taking it in stride, pacing myself to avoid cramped fingers, or premature carpal tunnel. We barely take breaks and management checks in and asks, if we’re okay, knowing that we’re not. I grab a snack in between and I don’t complain, I’m grateful that I have food.

My very small virtual team, has been awesome, through the roller coaster ride of changes. We ‘re one man down and we’ ve adapted very well to the eighty percent increase in traffic. We look out for one another as much as we can, as there’s only a few of us.

I stopped to take this photo the other day on walk from home from shopping. I thought to myself, how lovely… It’s nice that this shop decorated these little bushes. Very pretty.

As of today the province wide “full” lock down, has been announced. I’m speechless. Well, actually I’m not speechless, I just don’t feel the need to share my two cents on it. If I did, my two cents will amount to two dollars!

Talk to you soon.

Take Care, Stay safe, and Stay tuned.

Love and Respect,

Just Some Thoughts 🤔:One of Those Sundays☔🍂💯😔….

It’s one of those Sundays where I vow to start the day as early as possible, vow to get a proper eight hours sleep, but for some reason the day doesn’t pan out that way.

I heard the rain tapping on the metal outside, sounding like a rhythm. I love the sound of rain, but this morning it doesn’t sound the same, it sounds like an interruption. It sounds as though a storms a brewing, and now the power is out. This is the second time this has happened this week, and I know I didn’t blow a fuse. Thankfully I have my flashlight by my side, and another trusty Led light gadget that I purchased yesterday from the dollarstore. I knew it’d come in handy soon, it’s that time of year. Sporadic rain, and thunderstorms. Cool, damp, crisp air.

I burn a large scented candle and lay back down in a fetal position on the comfy couch. I try to make myself comfortable, as I pull my favourite tan throw over me. I remember our friend that has passed, and it’s only been a few days. I think of how positive his energy was, what a bright light he was, and how young he was. I think of how his parents must feel, his family at home, who expected him to come home. I think about how dreary this day feels, and I planned on doing more with it. The weather outside depicts exactly how I am feeling, it could let up at any time, it will definitely change. I am frustrated that I’m going to have to change the plan I thought would work today.

It’s too dark to try and do too much, my sources of light are minimal, but good enough to get me through until the power comes back. My laptop battery is dying slowly, as is my cell phone, and my media pad. I lay patiently trying not to think negative or sad thoughts. I guess I’ll wait till everything is back up and running.

There’s only so much that I can do in the dark. I think, at least I am alive to face this day, it could be worse.
The power came back on as I positioned my flashlight,
The rain stopped as well. I felt a sense of relief.

It’s time to get on with my Sunday. The day ended up going okay.

Take Care, Stay safe, and Stay tuned.

Love and Respect,
