Read, Write, Rest, or Cook

I’ve had a busy last few days… I’ve extroverted way too much… you introverts out there know what I mean…so I am grateful for a quiet day… one where I don’t need to leave home… a day to recharge my batteries… so that I can extrovert again… when need be… which will probably be tomorrow…

While we have a day at home… Bertha… has recommended that I do the… Three R’s… I learned from Mrs. Wallace… my favorite Kindergarten teacher… now… they are probably a little different that the ones you are acquainted with as no math is involved… these go like this… read… write… rest…

So… I’ve done some of all three today… and… I added one of my own… cook… which doesn’t fit into the alliteration…but there is something about preparing good food… and then eating it… of course… that is grounding… especially when that food included… homemade mac and cheese… with a pork chop and some greens… a meal that made doing the dishes worthwhile… and… no… Bertha… did not help with the dishes… but she made good smacking noises as she cleaned her plate…

Basically… Bertha… says you don’t have to… read… write… rest… or… cook… it can be any activity which helps you to recuperate and reground… just be sure you make time for it… somewhere in your busy schedule…

Why not pick up a copy of the Bertha books for yourself or someone you love. Just click her name and she’ll whisk you away to Amazon faster than my kittens jump in my lap when I start to eat.

 

Acting Still…

Bertha’s…on a roll again…this time…she’s reminding me…to be still…to goGranny's Rocker within…she’s been doing it in interesting ways…

Headaches…three days this week…reminding me…that all the things I thought I had to do…I really didn’t…she says that the body has a way…of getting your attention…when you aren’t listening to anything else…

Then…there was an article that I was to write for…Women as Visionaries with Lore Raymond Magazine…the topic was…action…but…Bertha…only reminded me…that being still…is an action…and that’s what the post will about…

And…of course…there have been several posts on Facebook…all about taking time…going within…resting…recuperating…

So…I’m getting the message…no…I can’t stop my world today and just sit in the contemplation chair…there are things that must be done…but…I can…stop and be still…before I get started…

And…now…I think…I’d like some time in Granny’s rocker…just to chill before I go…
