I believe in positive affirmations, positive thinking and being positive all around. But believing and doing are somewhat different when it comes to this stationery adjustment!
We’ve been home one month and 4 days and it’s not been much fun! Lots of $$$ going to places that aren’t joy producing…home insurance, new tires, car repairs (got the check engine light fixed), A/C repair…
In the middle of spending all this money, new camera bug bit me. My rationale is something like this…..spending all this money on stuff that brings no pleasure, might as well spend money on something fun! So a cute little red Nikon Coolpix with a 30X zoom came into my life.
Watch what this baby will do. This is picture of downtown Chattanooga taken while on a Stringer’s Ridge hike.
Notice the spot of blue in the center of the picture…..look hard!
This is the walking bridge, Walnut Street, on the left and Market Street bridge on the right.
And zoomed again!
Unfortunately it lacks a viewfinder and all one can do is point in a general direction and zoom. Can’t really see what is being photographed. After studying the above picts, the camera was returned and the trusty D-40 will get a cleaning!
This past weekend the Nina and Pinta were in town…..remember Christopher Columbus and 1492?……and we walked across the Walnut Street bridge heading for a tour.
Rowers were all over the Tennessee River preparing for a race.
And a few paddle boarders!
Could not get a good picture of the ships but learned a lot about sailing in the 1400’s. These boats are replicas built in 1988 and 2004 in South America.

Started writing this post yesterday morning, before we started packing for the Cherokee rally. By mid-afternoon there was a noticeable shift in my energy; happiness mixed with joy and anticipation was filling my heart! All I need to do, to feel happy, is to pack and leave?
During the first cup of coffee this morning, my thoughts are on a friend who may not live another 12 months. It’s reminding me that I want to live each day as if it is the last….and something must change in the way we are living here at home!
Embarrassed to confess that TV has become very important with more and more shows to be watched each week. Filling my inner spaces with action and mystery, non-uplifting shows with titles like Revenge, Betrayal and Scandal. And reading dark books to fill the void…They Are all Gone and Gone Girl.
Still not sure about what changes must be made….but need to stop numbing myself with mindless activities.
Trusting that life will reveal a new direction, eventually.
Keeping my fingers crossed hoping the rain will be minimal. Time to continue packing! Hoping to be there by mid-afternoon!
