Be Kind To Yourself

Treating myself gently
The past months have taken their toll.
Frustration at my limitations is a constant.
Not yet finding a medical voice that I trust is
distressing and infuriating.

I was able to visit a vintage market show
on Friday with pal Sue and make it all around and back
with limited discomfort. Progress!

We shared a great lunch, at one of my favorite spots,
Public School (first discovered in Culver City near Hannah),
 then back to her home
to peel sacks of lemons to begin making
limoncello gifts for the holidays.

I found these delightful star lights
that have a 6 hour timer so I am installing
them in many rooms. These in the family
room greeted me when I returned on Friday and
the mood in the room instantly calmed me.
I set them to come on at 6 pm and they shut off at midnight.
The next 3 sets are going in my bedroom canopy.
I cannot imagine a better welcome for slumber each evening.

Be Kind To Yourself

Lights on a timer sound like a great idea. I hope you continue to improve and get back to your old self and be able to enjoy your days!
