The Wonderful Fresh Air
All our windows open wide
The curtains blowing back and forth
The cool feeling rushes through my body
All my senses slightly tickled lightly
Enjoying the rthym
Full of energy
Being aware of my surroundings
Listening to the soft hushing sounds
Thinking more freely
Open to more choices and suggestions
Feeling the joy of well being
Improving on my creativity
Welcoming exercise as a chance to express my freedom of movement
Realizing what feelings surface
To reflect on my body in the inside as well as on the outside
Taking my energy to a new positive level
Ready to plan and make adjustments
Apply my new intentions
Listening to other people talk
Instead of adding to the constant chatter
Reaching specific goals that reward my efforts
Helping me move ahead to new options
Taking away a deeper connection
What is all about to happen

Ann Carr As you see we have our moments. We take the good with the bad. I thrive on the good. My wife is my balance. Sometimes the bad gets to her more than the good. It is a working progress. There has to be a happy medium. Sometimes it comes easy, most of the time it is the hard way. I feel we have to go halfway around the world to get to the same point. As long as we get there almost unharmed. Are feathers may get ruffled and I won't say we never lose control. What I will keep trying to do is go back to the place when we both fell in love. Happiness is the key for me. When her eyes light up and there is that uncontrollable smile that follows. That is all I can ask for. She does the same for me. At so many different times and places. My father use to say it all comes out in the wash. I don't think he tried bleach like me and now we have a bigger issue. That's all for now. Another thought that I hope brings joy to your day. Thank you so much for reading and commenting. It makes my crazy life seem a little more normal.

Yes, easy does it is the key. Sounds like you've both it all sorted!
Have a great weekend!

Ann Carr You have been quite busy too I see. I hope the sewage pipe is fixed and better than new. Teamwork is dreamwork. My wife and I often handle different chores we are best at and I love to wash dishes and she loves to cook. When we do other things in the yard I do most of the cleanup. Then there is the food shopping and all day to day bills and responsibilities we kind of work on together. Even if I am just mailing the bill she wrote out the check. I love to hear other people's lives and how they plan and organize and make things better. Make sure to have lots of fun in-between and even if things aren't perfect they are better than before. Sometimes progress is slow and I have found it takes me a long time to understand where I want to be is still different than where I am at. Little by little. A small smile goes a long way. Making sure each other is happy in the process. Thank you for reading and sharing another look at life in progress. We all try to live a life that suits us better and sometimes we can't just go out and buy that new suit. Happy Friday.

Outdoors I have runner beans growing, the raspberries have started and I have to get there before the blackbirds, and we have gooseberries which are still too hard to eat. I have a variety of tomatoes in tubs and planters and I'm growing new mint indoors. My partner is hacking an old wall to put in new sewage pipes - glad that's his job, not mine!
Indoors I'm trying to purge old stuff and recycle many things that have not been used. Much is still in boxes as it's taken 3 years to get this house in order since we moved (renovation etc).
Plenty to keep us busy! Thanks, I hope your Wednesday is good and enjoyable. Keep safe and well.

What new projects have you started? It is so great to stand outside and just water the flowers. They grow little by little and flower and bloom. I am not crazy for the bugs but I spray myself with bug spray and it helps. I have tried some homemade natural remedies they don't seem to work as well. I don't have a lot of free time but an hour here or there feels so good. Thank you for sharing. Hope your day was good.
Ann Carr from SW England on June 02, 2020:
That sounds great. Hope your Tuesday is going well too.

Ann Carr What a difference a day makes. Today and yesterday was cool and in the 50's. Awesome to feel and enjoy. Give me that good old fresh air. My wife and I were out on our back deck trying to fix things that were broken and organizing a little bit more. My wife planted a few plants in each flower pot at the edge of our driveway. They look beautiful. She does a wonderful job every year. Thank you for another great share. Happy Tuesday may all things have just a touch more love.

A very cool thought, especially as it's hot and humid here too - unusual for England at this time of year! Lovely in the sunshine though.
Our slight breeze is blowing the willow seeds around and it looks like snow!

Ann Carr Yesterday was hot and humid. Today cool and breezy. I wish I could capture the breeze in a box all the sounds and fresh air. That would be a best seller. Maybe someday. Have a beautiful Sunday. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I am going outside and let the wind blow me around like a rag doll. Better yet like a kite flying high in the sky. Pushing me one direction and then the next. Lifting me up higher and higher. Just a cool thought to carry you away. Happy writing.

It's certainly a great feeling to breath in a fresh breeze. Refreshes the heart and soul!
