The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"

The solar eclipse is over. My mother had a doctor's appointment an hour away from her home on the edge of the path to a town in the center of the path. It took her from 8:00 a.m to 6:30 pm to get there and back for an appointment that lasted less than an hour. Relatives took hours to get home from jobs that normally take only minutes to get to. From what they have been telling me it was crazy. It was cloudy here so it wasn't that noticeable. |
Got the front flower bed weeded today. I don't know why but I hate working in that bed. I could spend hours each day, and sometimes do, in the back beds, but the front is always a chore and it is never in bad shape.
Seeing Heather on the board today.
My daughter caught the strap of her favorite Coach purse (it was a gift) and broke it. I was able to find the exact material and make her a new one. Good as new and she can't even tell the difference and she is as picky as they come.
My hip is still painful when I sit, but it hardly hurts at all now when I am standing or walking (one reason I am seldom on the computer right now).
What happened with the traffic?

Were roads shut down etc? This was such a non-event here in Canada where I live. Been wondering what it's been like elsewhere.|

The towns in the path of the eclipse hyped this for months. They sold tickets for watch parties. If there was a stadium or a parking lot that was or could be made gated they had watch parties there. It was a big boon for small rural towns. Trouble is that the large towns got in on it too. And large populations with lots of out of town people searching for the place where their watch party was being held was a recipe for frustration and in some cases disaster. People came from everywhere to camp out (parking lots that couldn't be closed and gated rented spaces overnight for campers to parK, whooo more money) or stayed in hotels. The towns and businesses loved it. There were a lot of places that closed down during the eclipse also. Then all the schools and factories, and there are a lot of factories there, got out about the time the eclipse was over. It's always congested up there between 3 and 6:30 or so. Yesterday there were thousands of people headed out home at about the same time that the normal afternoon congestion happened. I am sure that the traffic jams caused accidents and the accidents caused the traffic jams to be worse. I sounded totally crazy. One cousin said that they were taking back roads they thought only the locals knew and they were crowded and only moving at a snail pace. |

That's WILD! I think about 300 people gathered here in Saint John. It was not a big deal at all - sounds wild there!|

May see part of the eclipse today...only partly cloudy BUT I don't have any of the glasses...going to call Lowes |
Practicing French even though I have absolutely NO aptitude and my memory is like a sieve...nothing stays in it!
Have an appointment to get my Eiffel Tower tattoo this Friday. I'm a little nervous. I have two already but I don't see them on a regular basis because they are on my ankle and my foot. This will be on my wrist and I will see it all the time.............
Looking at hotels in Prague
Trying to make sense out of the fact that I will be 83 in 20 years........Trying to figure out how I want to spend those years given my finances and measure of health. It is sobering folks.

We could die tomorrow. Or later today. Don't think too far ahead. Live every single day to the fullest. A friend of Ray's died on the weekend of a heart attack at the age of 56. |
We gotta live it up NOW, Paula.
