The new job wasn’t really hard, not easy, not thrilling but not bad either. I spent the morning cutting up cardboard boxes. Freight comes in boxes and instead of cutting them up as they go they pile them up in piles bigger then a house. I told them next time they get this many we’re putting them on free cycle for moving boxes and such. They are excellent, heavy duty boxes so great for that kind of thing. Then I also cleaned up all the hose reels and put them out on the sidewalk for free. They look like this…
I’m going to list these on free cycle too. They make the coolest chairs and tables. In fact I brought one home to make a snack table. One of my winter time projects coming up. I made $7.75 an hour so not a horrible wage but nothing to scream about either. Still grocery money and that’s what counts.
Then this afternoon I took a nap. A good two hour nap. It felt wonderful.
Which lead into tonight and it was family game night. We ate good dinner and then played a new (to us) game called Cadoo. We had a blast. Family game night is such a great way for 3 generations to get together and just play, argue, giggle, tease and just plain have fun.
Now tomorrow is shopping day. Just a few groceries and maybe a bit to eat. I did tell Jim I’d fix us a nice breakfast before we left if he’s want. So we’ll see.
A great day and now it’s coming to a close. I do have to tell you something about the book I’m reading, “In the Now”. It is teaching me to live in the now. Such as, you’re eating breakfast, enjoy your breakfast, see…smell…taste…enjoy and don’t think what’s ahead, what’s behind just what’s now. I’m cutting cardboard and thinking what’s next, what I have to do, what else is happening and arguing with myself because the book says only think about what’s happening now. I’m a planner, I’m a re-liver, I’m looking ahead … I’m suppose to learn to enjoy now. It’s hard. I don’t really believe all of what I’m reading but I have to tell you it’s making me thinking. ALOT!!! A great book to get the mind thinking.
Take care my friends and have a blessed and awesome Sunday.
