Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water. - W. C. Fields

I had a fairly un-stressful Saturday. I went through my usual routine for the morning, making coffee (I had coffee and filters - no stress), reading the local newspaper, checking the blog (but not writing anything- no stress) and going with Bebe to our little Jackson Street Market Day. It was shorter than usual, so I was able to see it in record time. We ate out and refused to order more than we could eat so we were in fine. I returned home and did some chores, took a short motorcycle ride, and then settled in for all the college football I could watch in between naps. In short, I refused to do anything yesterday to cause stress. It is Sunday and I plan to continue my journey by beaching my raft in some secluded cove with a quiet beach and keeping my mind hooks in neutral. Any thought coming through with the potential to cause stress will be allowed to pass with very little cognitive energy. I hope you are able to do the same. Maxine has some a short list of things that cause stress.
