Yesterday I got a package I was waiting for. It took 16 days to get here from China. I got a pencil pouch, a weird green and gray nylon bag with lots of pockets, some post-it notes that depict the moon, some colorful cards the size of business cards but blank, metal clippie things that depict the Eiffel Tower and are supposed to hold a photo or whatever upright.
It was a good mail day all around. I also got three letters and some special postcards.
Yesterday I went to a new women’s support group at UMOK. It was through an interpreter, which slowed things down, but I want to learn Spanish, so it’s great to hear it. There were hugs, and I want to return. I friended some new people on facebook. I really hope it doesn’t fizzle. They have a lot of ideas: crafts, jewelry, self-defense, reiki, yoga, candle-making!
Today is my friend’s birthday. She’s going camping by herself. I kind of wish I could go camping more easily. Seems like a really big deal. I need more nature time.
But our minivan is still in the shop. We will get it this afternoon or Monday.
I’m feeling positive about life. I have some good plans and ideas. I just need some energy to implement them.
