This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how relieved I am because it’s over. The other day I finally decided to go for it. I was at the DMV office at seven AM to wait in the already long line to renew my license and get the new ID. I was impressed how most were very patient…just waiting.  I was one of the few who dragged along a chair. Then there was the BIG SURPRISE. I was scheduled to take the written test, but because of the Corona Virus they weren’t giving the test. Yea, I didn’t have to take the test. Actually, I was a little bit disappointed. I had spent hours studying and reviewing the practice tests. I probably knew all the answers.  Of course, I can say that since I didn’t have to prove it, at least for another four years. Maybe then it won’t take me four and half hours at the DMV office staying six feet apart wearing a mask.

KEEP A HAPPY FACE
Don’t worry if you make a mistake, learn from it.
Tell the people you love, that you do.

YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING OLD WHEN
you forget names, but it’s okay because others forget who you are.
your favorite happy hour is taking a nap.

IDEAS FOR REMOVING STAINS
(Taken from Easy Does It)
To pick up gravy stains cover as soon as possible with cornstarch, salt or talcum powder to absorb the grease.
Ring around the collar? Rub the stain with white chalk to absorb skin oil before laundering.
Always use a white cloth to remove fabric stains. A colored cloth may bleed causing additional stains.

PUNCH LINES
No one can win who doesn’t begin.
Anytime is a good time if you know what to do with it.

    One of my Tia Chi Instructors embeds the following sentence in every email she sends: “Mistakes are proof that you are trying.” This takes the sting out of feeling so stupid especially when working with technology.
    Do you have a submission for tomorrow?

    Love the line, “ Anytime is a good time, if you know what to do with it,” so very positive, yet with some challenge. I love mornings, the start of a new day. Yesterday’s problems disappear with the hope of a bright morning or even one clouded by a marine layer. Birds zip around and trees and bushes dance with the breeze. God is speaking. How blessed we are!

    Playing catch-up again. Love the “punch lines”. Congrats for getting through the DMV thing. I was supposed to go this year to get my new ID but when I got my sticker renewal there was a note inside that said because of the Covid-19 I get to postpone to next year. That’s good because next Feb. is when my license is up for renewal so I can do it all at once next year 🙂
