and – oh – is it cold. I put on my shirt, my sweatshirt, my jeans, my SCARF and my hood was up … and it was still cold! The wind was rushing along so much that I couldn’t get to the subway and I turning and walked to the other subway with the wind behind me.
The shoemaker was there; he had just mended my sneakers – the heel on the left one was warn out but the right one was gone! So now they were perfect!
How much energy is going to read, respond to emails and doing the social media thing? Is it right before work? Are you spending a lot of time doing “digital overload”?
How much time do you spend on activities with “high value” work? According to Jill Klein, a professor of marketing who teaches managerial judgement for Melbourne Business School, you eliminate these distractions and concentrate on the mental reserves aspect to maintaining focus.
LifeFocus.ca, if you will … is my theme. You can come back to the LifeFocus.ca any time. It will restore focus and give you the push to go on …
I start here! I don’t know what I will put here but I know I will. Each week I will document my life as I goes by.
I got a picture of my sister and me, at the ages of 4 and 7 beside the pumpkin, made for us by my dad. We are smiling, expecting to go out to the neighbours for trick or treat. We haven’t got the costumes on but we’re going to set ready soon!
I go out every day. Mostly just walking … I stop for coffee but there isn’t anywhere that I can in … “takeout or delivery” is the rule. It’s be like this for 28 days. COVID-19 is happening.
Thursday I went for a walk down the Woodbine Beaches, walking on the broadwalk along to the end. It was cloudy all afternoon. It just hadn’t rained which I know is the 6:00pm thing according to the weather report. There were people on the broadwalk, in twos and threes, with a dog and without. I was walking towards wind and it was blowing my hair. It was chilly …
I have had a busy week this week … and today as well. I got my hair cut and I love it, met for Alfred’s on the phone and went to a Writing Workshop. And today, I (and friends of mine) are going for dinner and to a concert.
October the 21st, the voting starts! – for one day anyway. I’ll have to decide on what to vote on.
In the past two weeks I have gone to the dentist, attended Dave’s guitar concert (he plays wonderful music), attended a board meeting by phone, been to the Ex to see the cats and took a Zip car out for a drive while doing my returning.
It’s September 1st and Wister’s birthday … I have to remember to call her! It is a new year in my time, and I will blog …
Monday August 4th was a holiday! My wister and the girls came to the zoo with my daughter and her husband. We saw a lot of animals and we had so much fun!
The bunch of us went out to dinner at The Wren – the favourite restaurant of our brother/son/nephew/cousin and his wife. The dinner was fantastic.
Tuesday morning, I went with them to Vaughan, its outside of Toronto, way up there on the subway line. We were met by a friend of my wisters and we went to her place for brunch. After that we went to the AGO to see all the pictures.
Wednesday morning I met with them (my wister and two daughters) and went with them to the airport using the subway and the UPS train. The Swiss Chalet gave us lunch in the airport and I waved goodbye to them …
The flood started when everyone was away. The petsitter came in at 9 pm and again the next day … we haven’t seen him do it yet but Sammie (the cat, is into everything) turned on the faucet and something was in the drain so it couldn’t go down … it flooded totally.
I came in Sunday … what a mess! We moved out. It’s been 10 days since the flood and I had parked myself between the guest room and S’s apartment going here and there – nobody needs me around that much!
The PRIDE Parade happened on the Sunday and Dave Barrett’s concert was Saturday. We ate at Allen’s and Tabule Restaurant, both being good. We saw Justin Trudeau in the PRIDE Parade. It was 10 days that nobody wanted to miss …
