Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

5 fast ways to fight fatigue...


What the professionals say:
1. Open a window, take deep breaths.
2. Refresh yourself with a quick face wash.
3. Do simple stretches.
4. Laugh - lifts spirits.
5. Meditate - relieves anxiety


My personal favs:
1. Do lunch with a gal pal, mother or daughter, for therapy.
2. Visit little shops with handmade items, and things you don't need,
but love to look at.
3. Have coffee or tea, along with a good book and 2 corgis on my lap.
4. Drive out in the country, looking for farm animals.
5. Get lost in crafting, whether it be snipping photos, card making, scrappin'.

Great post - I love your additions. You know I never took naps very much, but I've started taking them once in awhile and they are great!

For you guys in the frozen north -- yes a snootful of that freezing air would wake you up but good!!! It does snap you out of fatigue!

I like to windowshop, too...my weakness is the bead shops...

Mum loves your lists and we think they are very creative, especially the part about corgis on your lap.
