Monday Musings…

Featured Image -- 13928

Here’s hoping everyone had a lovely weekend!  Ours was very nice with my DS and DDIL and JP hosting both nanas and papas and aunts and uncles and a couple of little cousins for dinner on Sunday.  All I had to do was bring a fruit salad (yes, I was able to cut the fruit up properly 😉 )and I got to spend the day with some of my favorite people!

If you have not read my Mothers limerick about my childhood, you can find it here.  My life is pretty wonderful now, though, and I have a great support system.  I might write some posts about early family life later — when I look back at some they are pretty funny, or were to us, anyway!

Today begins the Kindness Challenge I’m participating in and this week we are focusing on being kind to ourselves.  So I’m going to the gym twice today — once for a workout in the pool and later in the afternoon for another session with my new Personal Trainer, Pat.  I will write a separate post on her.  She’s super nice (aren’t they all?) and funny but just as evil in her own way!  She’s also about my age and probably a size zero — maybe a size two?  I’ll ask her today —

Working out really is the best way to take care of myself and my health, both physical and mental health…

  1. You’re one of the kindest people I’ve had the pleasure of “meeting” here, so yes, it’s definitely time to pay it forward to yourself! And tell your size 0 personal trainer to eat a chip! Hehe… size zero… can’t wait to hear about her! Hope it goes well! 😀

  7. I plan to have a couple of pieces of chocolate from my Mother’s Day gift box and maybe a lemon bar from my fridge thanks to another “gifter.” 🙂
    Diane, you have a wonderful and warm personality. Plus, some fun and playful kindness given to your readers (and I assume your family, too.) ❤

    1. Thanks, you are so sweet. Sounds like you had a good Mother’s Day, too. I do try, but readers, of course, come first, right? Family has to like me, lol.
