I read a wise quote………..”The best therapy is taking a break from the usual routine.’
Yes, with that definition in mind, I have had good therapy this week.
My usual routine for months has been focusing on what needed to be done at the cottage.
I needed it to be finished,…. although it’s never finished…., and that happened last week, jut in time for weekend guests.
While a trip to the beach was not part of my therapy, I found other ways to get out of the routine.
I browsed the fiction shelves of the local library, especially the large print, and checked out a book that promises to be good reading.
I wiped the dust off my water color supplies and started working on a couple of botanicals.
Working crossword puzzles, not the hard ones, is a good stress reliever for me. The easy ones give a boost to my ego……making me feel smart.
Shopping hint…The Dollar Store is the place to shop for crossword puzzle books.
And this……. Hanging out with my sweet neighbor….Ms. Lena turned 86 in January.
Isn’t she beautiful!
Hanging out with Ms. Lena is therapy to the max. Although we only met 6 months ago, it’s just like we have always known each other.
We’ve all met people like that and having one next door ….how blessed I am.
We will be going back to the main house this weekend. It has been two weeks since we were last there. In the meantime, I am enjoying my week of therapy.
