Fill-In Sunday


Cat and nurse picture, cartoon, laptop
I believe I can deal with procrastination.
I need to go "Marie Kondo" my desk to reduce distraction.
It does not do good to lose my attention.
(And do other things that just cost me tension).

I find self-caring to be a walk in the park
(Well, not really)
But when I get started self-caring gives me this spark
It opens my eyes, I can see in the dark
I can fight my anxiety and put it in a halt!


          It is a late morning for me getting up from a late evening from doing homework last night. I should say from the early morning because I went to bed past midnight. Part of me is thinking, "what am I doing?" I decided to go back to college to advance my degree. It has been a year now, and here I am still going. I am two subjects away from going up a level. Doing school work gets my mind off the stressful situations around me--family, work--which I love. 

          I made instant Pho and added ground meat. My friends would be shocked, as I switched to non-meat diet since last May but it is veggie meat :) so it's okay. I plan to do some work after this blog post entry, then go to church. I will go to the gym for an hour workout, longer than my usual and try to do about 10,000 steps of the treadmill and other machines. Yesterday, I only did 8,000 :( because I buried my head doing homework and it is just not easy marching in place as I type while my head was covered with books and papers. Can you imagine?

          Good Sunday to you all! May your day be restful or productive or both.

  1. Very nicely done. I love your fill-ins. I love your kitty too.

    Going to school is hard when you're working. I so remember, but I'm glad I stuck with it. It served me well.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a blessed Sunday and week. ♥

  2. Hi Carin, thank you for dropping by for a visit. Hubby and I are encouraging each other to keep up the target of 10,000 steps per day. Most days we can but some days are just too busy to accomplish. Have a happy new week!

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Raking Leaves

It is October and the weather and color of early Fall show some hints here in Colorado. I try to create some beauty around me to share with family and friends and use nature and circumstances as instruments of creativity.  I have many things to be grateful for. Here is my list. My son and family came to visit with his family. I have this backdrop in the backyard for them. He showed the kids how to rake and help clean up in the backyard to which his little boy made a face * I am not raking the leaves because you ask me to* kind of attitude.  Grandson later did it when not asked. :) We are still receiving unexpected wedding gifts even when we did not have a reception.  I am thankful for all the gifts and best wishes. Wally the dog earns his certificate for dog training 101 (online).  I thank him and the trainer for the video training. He learned to close the door, "stay" longer, and be better with "leave it." Human dad Paul is teasing us that we bought Wally's dip

Kauai Vacation

Kauai vacation pictures outdoors Paul and I are lucky enough to go out of the mainland and visit Hawaii's Kauai island. We prepared for this trip with money-saving in mind (we cooked most meals and did not order drinks when we ate out). We also lost weight before leaving. Here is my gratitude list. Losing weight and getting fitter. We tolerated short moderate to difficult hikes to go to the smaller and more private beach to avoid the crowds.  Beautiful beaches we enjoyed for free. The beaches are all public in Hawaii. The beautiful, lush, and shady hikes to complement sunny days. Natural rocks to sit on to watch the waves and enjoy the cool breeze for hours. Jojo's shaved ice with macadamia ice cream on the bottom. We enjoyed the tropical breeze flavor almost daily! Hawaiian feast and show called Lua. That was fun to watch. The company of friends from Colorado. Of all places, we got to meet in Hawaii after many years. How odd but nice. They stopped over
