Second shot is a doozy and my new Life Plan

Got it yesterday at walmart my arm was a bit more sore than the first covid shot but today! I ache all over and can’t get warm enough chills and now bladder pain which had been under good control. Not complaining, just a comment, happy. to be among those lucky. to get the immunization we all need at some point. Glad I have the soft comfy bathrobe my daughter sent me and my afgan my other daughter made for me. I am a lucky woman, all the same I feel like &^%$ today.

I’m making some changes in my life and it’s about time! I’ve been a news-oholic forever and now I have the apple app that for $10 a month you get dozens of news sources and I was watching all of them especially of late, instead of reading something worth my time. You also get magazines. I’m going to delete all the news and just keep some magazines. I’m also quitting all social media. I’ll keep this blog for now.

Why do I think I should do this? I’m wasting too much time and time is getting shorter. I want to use my time better and rid myself of stressful. and nonsensical information that has little or no value to me.

I want to think deeper.I want to paint better, I want to read better literature.

I’ll keep the TV for movies that are uplifting rather than rude violent or just plain stupid and watch my Great Courses that I’ve subscribed to and haven’t finished watching.

I want to be a better friend, a better mother, a better sister, A better granma, I want to feel better, I want to be my best self

Of course I could do all that without making these changes, but would I? could I ? I’m hoping that by writing this down here now I will expect my self to honor my plan, to be frugal and watch my diet, decrease sugar…..except for chocolate and wine and drink more water!

Is it the fever talking?

It’s a Dilemma I’m having

A new website or just add my art pages here?

After much frustration and deep thought I wonder what the purpose of my efforts are!

To remind myself, I’ll write my thoughts right here.

1 To promote my art.

2.To have a place to introduce my art to new readers (get new readers!)

3.To remind my readers that my art is available and can be purchased right here (prints)

4.Soon I will offer available original art here.

5 Besides flowers and trees I really like to paint abstract images, see Kate’s portfolio here.
