Where I stand



I’d like to say I have time to walk down each path, to follow you to your place and “set for a spell.”  The reality is that I don’t even have enough hours in a day to keep up with my e-mail.  For the next two months, work will consume more days than are allotted for my job. For the next month, Christmas preparations will consume more time and brainpower than I have available.

My life is full and so is my schedule. I am happy and busy, but there is little time to stop and reflect, to think, to write.

I’m practicing thankfulness and attempting to practice mindfulness.

  1. Beautiful photos 🙂 A full life is a good thing to enjoy –I always assume there will come a time when it slows down and there will be time again to reflect.

  2. Worry not about the visits, Karen. You keep busy doing what you’re doing. Especially the being happy part.

    Hugs and love to you.. have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. My friend, I know exactly what you’re talking about. I’ve been making like the Duracell-bunny for weeks now and the only break I see is next week when I leave for a visit in Stockholm with my niece -C-. Other than that I expect to go all-out until about the 21st of December. We’ll catch up again, when things slow down. Keep safe!

  4. BTW – I love the first picture in this post. That’s how the sidewalks in Inuvik looked when I first came there in 1983. They were truly sidewalks that saved you from the quagmire of mud called streets. Once I lost one of my rubber boots in the middle of the street – believe it or not!
    I have no photographic proof of the incident – just trust me on this one.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving from my seven-day work week! I know about busy–in January I get to cut back to six days after more than two years of this.

  6. I understand what you mean about catching up on emails. This is day two that I am catching up on lol. Enjoy your busy time. And keeping with being thankful and mindful 🙂
