The Simple Joys I Miss

Hey wonderful you. Happy Sunday. Hope you’re well and feeling great!!!

I’ve been thinking about how I’m missing the simple things that I used to do that filled me with joy. Those moments that fill my heart have now become like a luxury item. Going to lunch with my son, giving my granddaughter a big old hug. Just having a conversation without a mask on.

I miss putting on makeup, since I wear a mask I haven’t. I miss going out to the mall and just walking around looking at all the clothes and things in the stores. Getting my hair done and meeting a friend for lunch afterwards. Or, not being concerned that the store may run out of an item I need. September two years ago I went to my granddaughters school for grandparents day lunch, right now living with the restrictions of COVID that is not a possibility.

This pandemic has definitely put a stop on social interaction the way we knew it. The one good thing that I’m loving is my family’s weekly zoom gatherings. Something we didn’t do before and we’re loving and hoping to continue after too.

And I miss taking my little trips to Las Vegas to visit with my son and family, going to Tivoli Village for a cup of coffee, sitting outside and watching all the people walking by. Can’t wait to get back to all of it.

What I’m doing

Cause’ I love berries and I love red, I thought I’d share these photos I took a while back.

Well, I can’t believe how fast this week flew by, and I only read a few pages of this book. To be honest, I really didn’t want to get into it, because I’m writing an article for the magazine. But, I hope I can finish it before I have to return it to the library.

And talking about magazine, yeap, The Inspired Guide is coming back and I’ll continue to be a regular monthly contributor. So excited and happy. First issue is due out on 9/1/21, I’ll keep you posted.

Worth sharing. I love grains but I’ve never eaten Millet so I’m going to try it.


If you’re feeling kind of out of it, sluggish and need a little boost, take a walk around your neighborhood.

Hope you enjoyed this little posting today. What are you up to, what simple joys are you missing? I’d love to know.

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday & week ahead & blessings!
