Sunny 🌞 Sunday 15 minutes can do so much

So many thoughts are flowing through my brain but I'll stick with my sunshine.  

If you're lucky, you can sit in a chair, close your eyes and soak in the rays for 15 minutes. 
You're not checking your phone. 
You're not racing from one crazy thought to another. 
You just sit.  

And if you do just sit, something amazing happens.  

Something happens to me. 
My brain relaxes.
My thoughts are resting. 
They are there but not sitting on my heart. 

And for 15 minutes my mind settles.

Most days I stare at the sun. I look at it from my dining room chair. But today I sat. I opened the door. I let my brain rest. 

I hope that you got your 15 minutes today. 


  1. Oh I love sitting in the sun - just feeling the warmth on my face - I had someone tell me a few years ago to "Imagine yourself as how the sun sees you.." and ever since then I've loved giving myself some time in the sun even more. :) Great reminder.

  2. They are there but not sitting on my heart. I love that line and your advice. It is amazing the difference the sunshine makes.

  3. "I let my brain rest." What a beautiful concept. I will be sure to make this a priority, too. Thank you.

  4. >My brain relaxes.<

    Oh that's a novel idea! :) Seriously, we do some Headspace and practice breathing a couple times a week. Does it help with my students? Debatable. Does it help with me? Yes!

    I hope your 15 minutes helped you today! :)

What could it be?

Your gift is downstairs!  That's what the text said.  He had mentioned this gift a few times.  He was dropping hints for the last few weeks.  But I didn't think too much about it.  He is a great gifter, gift giver, I don't know what it's called.  Anyway, he is my husband and he loves to give. No holiday or special occasion needed.  I went to the lobby. There were no packages on the shelf.  The mailperson was there so asked if he had it.   " Don't remember seeing your name" he said. He walked a box of packages over to the shelf. On the very bottom was the package. I was in a medium sized white box.  I tried to see the label but I left my glasses upstairs.  I squinted really hard.   CLARK! He got me Clarkpads!  I ran to the apartment and video called him.  Clarkpads!   Then I opened the box and they were purple.   These might not mean anything to the average person. But this is huge.  Some people learned to cook during The Lockdown. We learned ho

Day 3 Who am I?

We always read Winn Dixie. I love the part when Opal asks the preacher to share 10 things about her Mama because she is 10.  I am 45. 45 is a BIG number.   I was going to share 45 things about myself  but I think I'll  add the digits.  9 is more reasonable.   So here are nine things about me and my life. 1. I am a native New Yorker born and raised in Manhattan.  2. I'm right ✋ handed.  3. I'm a former runner. I ran over 30 races after my 40th birthday.  4. I am a bulldog mom. My baby is Bella. You will hear a lot about Bella.  5. I am a wife,  mom, stepmom and grandmother. 6. I love the outdoors! 7. A perfect date with my husband would be cruising on our electric unicycles through the city.  8. I get to teach some pretty cool kids.  9. I'm an omnivert. I can be the quietest or loudest person in the room. 


Those are my toes.  The blue covers, the not so cute, feet that used to be my friends.  If I wanted to run. I ran.  If I  wanted to jump and they would obediently jump.  But now they sting like lightning when ever they begin to zoom.  So, here I am, sitting, chatting, reminiscing about the feet I used to have.  Hopeful for the feet I might have soon.
