Day Job, Florida, Hello Monday

Day 11

How’s the weather where you are? It’s dark, misty and gloomy which is rare for Florida. It’s true that the weather affects your mood. When it is raining or gloomy I mostly want to stay in and read.

Here Comes a New Begining

Walk in to 2021 with a clear plan. Do not carry with you any resentment or pain of the past. If you owe me, forget it, we're square. I never loan, only give and don't expect a repayment.

Sunshine after the Storm

Hurricanes are a fact of life in Florida. I’m used to it. So many humans ask me, “Why live there?” I live here because it’s home and the storms are not an every day occurrence.

Thankful

We made it through the storm. Others not so lucky. If you pray please pray for the humans recovering from the storms. When the unexpected happens we have to adjust. We have to do what we must to survive. It’s not easy. Thank you for your support, kind thoughts and prayers during this time.

I do not like surprises. I’m one of those please warn me before you visit sort of humans. Surprise parties are a big no thank you. Unexpected gifts from my family, yes please.

What if I don’t want to

I just don’t. I don’t want to hear we are in this together. I don’t want to hear this is the new normal. No it’s just normal now. I don’t want to hear someone ask when will this be over. I just don’t.
