Summer is fading
August 25....I was reminded to pay my webhosting bill and thought, might as well update pictures and put my thoughts down.
A man once had a conversation with me about how fast time flies once you hit 50, he used a yardstick to explain. It's been at least 7 years since I've had that conversation and it is so true! Even when we try to live every minute of everyday to the fullest it doesn't slow it for us, the more we pack into a day the faster it goes. I've come to the conclusion that if you take pictures of your life while you're living it, you can look back and realize you really did live a full life even though the time seems to have just time warped. We look in the mirror and wonder, wow!... I'm old! I often wonder if my own mother felt this way as she was aging, does she still feel this way when she looks in the mirror? I used to pride myself in trying to keep fit, I look at other people my age and wish I could have that fit body. It is something you need to work on your whole life, remember that and keep moving! Time slows for no man!...or woman!
I have a new hobby, rock collecting. Terry thinks I've lost my marbles, I think I have... but I've found rocks! The best two things about this hobby are the hunt for the elusive beauty and the final polishing! Who doesn't like a treasure hunt? Who doesn't like smooth shiny interesting rocks? I've also come to the conclusion that rock polishing is not cheap! But I am getting so much satisfaction through the whole process.
Which leads me to realize that with this new hobby I am getting out of the house more going on a hunt, there by getting a little exercise to keep me healthy! Maybe it'll slow my aging crisis just that little bit!
Enjoy the rest of the summer, hopefully the weather will cooperate until the new season arrives however you see that happening! I'll look forward to our family golf tournament at Thanksgiving being hopeful that COVID19 doesn't cause the cancellation!
Just a woman, now fully retired from my day job...embarking on a full time art career!
