Stress Relief

Although my job continues to keep my stress level high, there are things that reduce stress with no effort on my part.

For example, today I went to my favorite coffee shop, the one that always has hazelnut coffee (a stress reducer in itself). The girl at the counter said "You're welcome" with a delightful British accent that immediately took me to my mother's kitchen. I found out that she was from a place only 20 miles or so from where my mother was raised.

On the sidewalk in town, three pink rose petals graced the bricks.

The soft wind before another rain shower was like feather strokes on my face.

Little things, but they made the day, one with a few bumps and hassles, smooth out and brighten, if only for a few moments.

What have you seen or heard lately that worked as stress relief for you?

What kind is your rose?
It looks like a climber I have called Dream Weaver. I love how they bloom in clusters.

Yes, it's the same one, Tracey. It's such a hardy rose, isn't it? and so pretty.

Broke the door off my brand spankin' microwave. Called Cust Service. Totally helpful, sending a repair person out.

Forgot about the whole Dish Network thing, almost, grrr.

Dropped ten strokes off my last round.
