Hello there darlings!
First time in a very long time - I went kayaking and really thought it was the most marvelously relaxing thing in the whole world. I think it's been since my high school years that I've been out on a lake in this capacity. Thank goodness for wearing a swimsuit underneath my outfit for impromptu little activities like this as well as having a friend with a couple of kayaks. I can always appreciate the leisurely moments I get which some days I just don't slow down enough for them.
On this day I also served at a local nursing home - I was there with my husband to play the piano and sing little hymns and campfire songs with the residents. I have to admit, I really had the hardest time going at first. After having lost 3 of my grandparents last year, it makes me pretty sad to be around elderly folks - I guess mostly because I miss my Oma, Opa, and Nana quite terribly and at any given moment small reminders of them will have me bursting into tears. So here I was on this day and the longer I spent around these beautiful folks in this home, the more comforted I felt. I felt comforted seeing their smiles, and hearing their silly little comments for everything. Most of all I felt a quiet peace looking into this one dear little lady's eyes and seeing my grandmother. It was the strangest thing, but all I know is that both her and my grandfather and my nana felt very near that day and that had me smiling on the inside.
So that's that - this whole week has me tied up teaching elementary kids drama/performing arts at a sports camp. It shall prove to be very interesting as it's normally teenagers I work with. If I survive - you shall hear from me soon...hehe.
Have a wonderful week darlings!
