I had a pretty good day today ....

... so I decided to blog about it. I am not exactly sure what MADE today a nice day but I sure am grateful for it. I think part of it is that my legs/knees felt a bit better this morning -so it was easier to walk -- so that helped a great deal.
Then, they played a lot of great songs on the radio as I drove to Oregon city for the Art therapy group I am in. I love music of most styles and from all decades, and it was nice hearing some songs that weren't the usual ones they play all the time.
I got there in plenty of time for the "Art Therapy." Unfortunately, the "therapist" doesn't use Art for therapy very well - which is a shame. Having studied it, I know that it really CAN be a very effective and helpful therapuetic tool if used correctly, but this lady is mainly using it more like an art class, in my opinion. It really is a shame but there is nothing I can do about it. I tried talking to her about it but she refuses to change in any way so I am just trying to have my art express things and give me insights to the best of my ability. (It would be so much easier if the therapist were on the "same page" but == oh well).
After "group" I went to Subway to try one of their "Philly steak sandwiches" for lunch. I enjoyed my lunch/dinner while reading a Dean Kootz book and it was very pleasant. When I got home I had two nectarines (to try to get some fruit/veggie servings for the day in) (I love nectarines).
It was a sunny day today (not my usual kind of day) but it wasn't too hot or too cold -- so that was nice. And when I came home -=- I was not in too much pain in terms of my legs/knees to be able to actually get on the computer for a change (lately I have been in too much pain and too tired to get on the computer at all) so that, too, was/is a nice change.
All in all, it was a very pleasant day and I am very grateful for it -- I hope you all have had and will have many lovely days as well! Hugsss!

I am glad you're having or had good day.
You're so talented and smart, it's too bad you can't run your own art therapy group/class in Second life.
I guess you could if you wanted too but you probably don't want too.
I would attend if you did.
