MONDAY SPARKS: LAUNCHING A NEW WEEK…

As we march forward to the end of this problematic year, I am feeling hopeful.  And invigorated.

Even in 2019, I was struggling to adjust to my new circumstances:  living in a senior residential community.  Before the Pandemic, however, I was loving my independence, which involved calling for a Lyft driver to go shopping or to meet with friends.

Everything changed in March, when we were all locked down here.  I consider it a fortunate aspect of my introverted personality that I could find a way to get through these changes. Books, movies, and the constant reshuffling of my interiors helped me adapt.

Today I read an article about napping, and how recharging our bodies can help us “improve memory, boost creativity, and enhance emotional control and stamina.”

Ever since I retired, a few years ago, I have enjoyed the occasional nap.  And, as suggested by the article, a short nap is better than sleeping away the day.

Today is Monday, and I look forward to starting the week with the things I love, like bookish blog events and daytime television shows.  Yes, I am addicted to soap operas.  What I love about them, and have enjoyed for years, is how viewing them takes me out of my own distractions and worries.

There are only four remaining shows, and I am able to manage them without giving up anything else I might enjoy.

General Hospital is a show I have watched on and off since 1963.  Back then, I was still in college and arranged my viewing around my classes.  Later, I used a VCR and then a DVR to record the shows.

After a weekend, I am always eager to rejoin the cast and their various antics.

Meanwhile, I am loving my books…and my current read, which I hope to finish today, is a new series from an author I enjoy: 

Out of Her Mind, by T. R. Ragan
