Semi-Productive Day

 It wasn't raining this morning - as forecast - but the temperature had dropped and it was quite cloudy out. My friend and I went for a walk and then I went home. I got my usual stuff done. It was too cold to sit outside and get lost in bird watching. I did lose myself in a book for a while. BUT on the plus side I got a couple of extras done that I've been putting off. I actually dyed my hair today! The grey has been out of control and, frankly, I've been feeling off and really couldn't be bothered to colour it. Today I decided to just do it. I'm glad I did! I feel a little better. Isn't it strange how something so little can cheer you up a bit? I also got some boxes and cleaning up done that I just haven't had the motivation to do. I'm actually quite pleased though it was something so little. 

I was planning to go up in the craft room tonight as I haven't been up all week (can you believe it??). Usually I at least go up there and do something. I haven't. Anyway, I got distracted by the book. I ended up finishing it and getting some photos sorted. That was my evening. I shall get up there tomorrow!

Tomorrow we have to go and help son pick up something from the shops. It won't fit in his car so husband is taking the work van. We're I'm hoping to visit a lighthouse on my 2021 list and see the daffodils. Hopefully it will work out. 


- My sister. I don't know what I'd do without her caring for Mum and keeping in contact with me daily. We were never really close - she's six years older than me - but I am so very grateful for her. 

- Technology. Just talking to Mum and being able to see her brings me...solace, comfort, joy. I don't know how to describe it. Makes me happy and sad at the same time. 

- Daughter. She's been checking in on me frequently. 


I saw a daisy!!!! I can't believe it. Just one. Growing by itself in the park. 


  1. Sounds like you had a nice day, Sharon. Yes, sometimes, those little self-care things we do can really help us feel better. I loved your list of things you are grateful for. Lovely daisy, too! Hopefully, you'll see more of them, as the weather warms up, but the first flowers are always special, aren't they?

  2. I am so glad that you are able to keep in contact with your Mum. Like you I am so thankful for technology.

  3. wow, is that like an English daisy that we got in our lawns? We do not get them here or buttercups either. But in fairness we do get different sorts of flowers in our grass, equally pretty. Great you are able to video chat with your Mum and sister. XXXXX

  4. It's the little things that bring such pleasure. One tiny solitary daisy would have made me smile. I love it when the pink tipped daisies pop out. It looks like they are blushing.
