Disconnect, Detox

It’s August,

Hello everyone,

I hope all is well with you.

It has been mighty hot,


in my beatiful,

but, it is gorgeous right now,

clear sky, cool breeze.

A majestic Summer evening.

Tomorrow, I am doing the second part,

of my first aid class.

I have packed a lunch,

cheese and pickle sandwich, cherry tomatoes on the side,

I have prepped some overnight oats,

for breakfast.

I trimmed my hair,

did some laundry…

worked a pretty full day…

I have been busy lately,

I haven’t been sleeping well,

my mind is working overtime.

I think I really need my vacation.

This year,

I am thinking of going,

digital free,

during those,

last two weeks of August.

I have become,

dependent, addicted,

to my phone,

I even get a little twitchy,

sometimes when I am charging it.

Surely, leaving it at home,

charged and checking my messages,

once a day,

will be good for me,

disconnect, detox.

I know some of you,

who have a very public life,

do that,

at Christmas and on vacation.

I have never done it.

But, I am thinking,

I need to.

I am pretty spent.

I need to charge my batteries.

I need to spend time,

with my girl,

with my friends,

with myself and my thoughts,

I need to go to a ball game,

the movies,

the museum,

botanical garden,


and not tell everyone about it,

here or on social media.

Yeah, that’s what I am going to do.

Thoughts? Have any of you all,

attempted this?

You happy with the outcome?

Let me know.

In the meantime,

keep enjoying your Summer.

Later, girls,
