The beauty of my neighborhood here in New Mexico always fills me with joy, which is a great thing since today was a hard one to get up and get out for the morning walk. But once I was out in the sunshine, smelling the sweet fragrance of the trees, I was happy to be outdoors.
We built chairs for our deck last night and the chairs weren’t cooperating. The holes weren’t drilled straight by the factory, so it’s a pain in the tush. Out of six chairs, we finished one. Another will come together today. Another needs to be taken apart completely and redone. We are both aching this morning. Tonight we wade back into the Great Chair Battle again.
Today on my walk I continued listening to a good book that might be of interest to some of you. How to Change: The Science of Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. In it Katy Milkman, an academic who specializes in how to help people change behaviors, discusses the science behind change through a series of fun stories and anecdotes that illustrate one aspect or another. I’m listening to the audio book, which is read by the author. It’s a fun and lively read and I’m enjoying her stories and insights.
And here is a photo from my backyard. My desert willow is in bloom.
Be well, friends!
