Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

A Moment In Time

They are sisters in law . More like loving sisters. Both woke up with heavy hearts. After dinner, one put on disco music and the two of them danced, laughing, and fantasizing in the kitchen. A beautiful moment and their hearts were lifted.


Difficult to get an appointment with a specialist… especially an ENT in allergy ridden Virgwinia. Lush  greens and trees everywhere. I’m living in a forest, or so it seems.My allergies in full bloom. I ended up with an ear infection. Earliest appointment was waiting a week.Seen immediately at Urgent Care.

$50 later I left RiteAid with ear drops .

My sister in law met an acquaintance that evening whose husband had recently retired. Magically he was an ENT. His wife cheerfully offered his services saying it would give him something to do.

A few texts and he was on his way. A neighbor. Making a bonafide house call.Physicians bag and very professional. Washing up and then taking notes. Out came a thing, ( my medical terms not accurate), to flush out wax from my infected ear, that caused temporary deafness. Infection was gone.

I can hear again.

 

At the end of the visit, I said how much I appreciated his care, and rather than some useless gift, what’s his drink of choice? It was a ale made in Richmond. My pleasure  to drop off a six pack, as he asked .

In this crazy world, it’s comforting to know kindness exists. That never goes out of date, like housecalls.

Hope everyone is enjoying the lazy hazy days of summer. Allergy free…

They always seek the sun🌞. We all need to know about the nourishment we need🌻❤️

What a wonderful story to start my morning . On Facebook . Eileen living in the UK is 105. Looks great, speaks beautifully and in great shape. She started doing yoga in her 90’s. She’s one of the oldest drivers in her country. Her attitude is positive and she talks about the future.

I’ve been doing Hatha Yoga for over 40 years. Basically stretching and breathing exercises. The easiest and one of the most important exercises is breathing correctly.

Haven’t been posting as much lately. Finally finished and published Circle. Available on Amazon…Lovely reading 15 good reviews. I’m in Virginia for the summer. Family Fun time and enjoying suburbia.

Please check out Dr. Andrew Weil for importance of deep breathing . He touts as one of the most important exercises.

Wishing all a healthy fun filled summer🤸‍♂️🌞🧘‍♂️

Standing on your head is terrific. Going up against a wall makes it easier and safer.

 

I’m not ashamed to say I’ve been obsessed with Meghan and Harry from day one. I admire the humanitarian work she did as a young high school student, volunteering at local food banks. She has continued her volunteer work. She was either 8 or 11 when she wrote a letter to Proctor and Gamble about their commercial, and they actually pulled the ad. Another story was she didn’t want to check  white or black choices she had  in school, even though her teacher told her she looks white and should check white. . She spoke to her father and he told her she didn’t have to declare one or the other. “make your own box.” he advised.

Harry and Meghan certainly seem to be sincerely in love, and I believe in fairy tales and they will live happily ever after…..helping those less fortunate.

I’ve watched all the Royal Weddings and sadly Princess Diana”s funeral. All live.

I have a routine, go to sleep at 11 and wake up at 4 with great excitement,  joy, and anticipation for a Royal Wedding.

Devout romantics usually follow their own set of rules when it comes to what touches us emotionally.

So, today was special because I experienced The Book Club with my granddaughter. I loved every second, and I could watch the four actresses for at least another hour. Keaton, Bergen, Fonda, and Steenburgen. What comic timing they have and just a totally feel good film. Needed in this troubled and sad time for our country. There is nothing wrong in escaping in a positive way. I read one review that was critical because  politics was not discussed. That was a  big plus for me. If I want realism, all I have to do is read and watch the news.  The Book Club is the best feel good film.

Preparation……purchased one sugarless blueberry scone. Delicious and made with mashed  bananas. Yura has the best. One mini tuna salad sandwich. Greens and some fruit.

Plans….. Have a date with Bill Maher at 10:00pm. At  11  will try to go to sleep and set my phone alarm for 4am. That’s when the food will be enjoyed. Half the scone for the wedding and will save the other half for later.

So there you have it. No invitation, but I’ll be there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dentist Delight

sorry must have been senior moment. Just the gums are 40

mother nature is a man and other observations..

Having a lovely birthday lunch with one of my oldest and dearest friends. Since we were five years old and she was a bridesmaid at my wedding. So the subject switched to age and we didn’t want to ruin a wonderful lunch by talking about anything depressing. My friend smiled and said her dentist told her that he can’t believe her age, since he knows her records. “If I didn’t know how old you were, I would think in your 60’s.” She does look great and has beautiful skin……Definitely not my style to play “can you top this” but I had to tell her what my dentist told me several months ago.

“You have the gums of a 40-year-old.”

We raised our glasses and made a toast to ourselves.

The Best of Everything is the way I would describe this dining experience. It seemed as if there were 7 taking care of our table of 2. Elegant with integrity and the food wonderful and memorable .

A lovely way to celebrate my April Birthday with a childhood friend. If planning a trip to NYC and you want a special time, I recommend highly . It’s pricy, but absolutely no arrogance . My friend took me and said it was worth the expense. I was delighted to be treated to such a delicious memory.
