Historical Tidbit:
Back in the early 1900's, going to the store was not a very common practice. Twice a week the grocery man would travel around town in the morning with his horse and wagon, visiting every home, and take orders for the dry goods that were needed. It would have been an item that the homeowner could not grow or raise themselves such as flour, coffee, tea, etc. That afternoon he would return to each home with their delivery.
There was also a gentleman from Middleboro who would come around with his wagon selling meat. This butcher usually came once a week. He would have a large drawer on the back of the wagon where the meat was kept and would cut what you wanted from the meat he carried that day. He would also take an order if he didn't have what you wanted.

Permission to Daydream

The human brain is highest functioning when it has varied stimulus. Sometimes it's problem solving, sometimes task driven; and sometimes creative. We each have our own personal balance of physical movement and brain work, and let's not forget those emotional and spiritual needs that keep us connected and help us envision and imagine... getting the right cocktail to keeps us healthy, joyful, fulfilled and finding solutions.

When summer calls with its warm days, sunshine, flowers, birds chirping and breeze. I swear I can smell ocean spray mixed with the sweet florals on that breeze.

So... about 2 pm each day, I give myself permission to daydream, to take a break and take a walk; to smell the flowers and the breeze.

Be kind to yourself.

Life is not a sprint, it is a marathon. Doing things well takes continuous effort. But we are not machines, and need to give ourselves grace.
Permission to daydream... granted.
