There are so many websites, so many information outlets.  We are constantly bombarded with information and so much of it is negative.

This is an eclectic page that has its focus on the positive.  People can be divided into two categories: those that see things and life as a glass half-full or a glass half-empty.  I tend (most of the time) to be in the half-full group.

That doesn't mean that I have my head buried in the sand and that I'm not aware of the problems around us, but.........I believe that if there were more positive than negative we just might start doing and seeing things that way.

Mainly Mera

Everyone has stress and gets down. It's important to find outlets that let you relax.  For everyone it's something different, for me the absolute best thing is a good jigsaw puzzle.  When I'm doing a puzzle the only thing I have to think about is looking for one piece of the puzzle and after a while I feel the problems or stresses falling by the wayside.

So next time you're feeling pressure or stress give it a try.  It might not be a jigsaw puzzle for you; it might be gardening, reading, crossword puzzles or something else and you might be surprised at how much it helps.

The video above is the second episode of our newest website page.  This one is about zucchini.  We were fortunate to have a good crop this year.  I always thought I had to cook it all right away. That's not true. As seen in this video, you can have zucchini to cook with after the growing season is over.

Thanksgiving 2020

There's a lot wrong in the world and this has been a very trying time. Maybe because of that I see even more clearly all that I have to be thankful for.

It might be hard to be at home.  But I see it as a time to slow down and appreciate spending time with Dan. Getting to enjoy reading, trying new recipes, doing cross-stitch, working on projects around the house and yard and creatng the Mainly Mera page with help from Dan.

I am thankful for all the caring people in my life ...... family and friends. And I'm happy we have found ways to stay in touch .... talking on the phone, zoom visits.  The connection is there.

I have so much to be thankful for but most of all being able to share my life and home with my best friend Dan.
