A Windy Day at my Happy Place

Hello Friends!

This post is actually a day late.  I visited my happy place yesterday, but I didn’t get to updating my blog last night as I had intended. So here I am now a day late and a dollar short. haha.

Today, I did not leave the house at all. I’ve spent much of the day at my laptop. I applied for another job. I also got a call from one of the jobs I applied to the other day. They invited me to take an online assessment. They wanted it completed by tomorrow at 5 p.m. I took the assessment today. It wasn’t so bad. There were four sections to it. The first section was timed (12 minutes). I didn’t get through all the questions, unfortunately. However, at the beginning, it did say that many do not complete all questions so I didn’t feel too horrible for not getting through them all.  The remaining three sections were not timed.  I think there was a good 90 questions per section.  In those sections, there was no right or wrong answer.  I think it went pretty well. I guess we’ll find out if I end up getting called for an interview or not.  I keep praying for God to open a door for me.  I’m behind on all my bills and today again I got another shut off notice for my electric bill. So I again applied for assistance through the Department of Health and Human Services. When I called Consumers Energy, they said I should re-apply for assistance because last time I applied was before the critical time period which started October 1.  She said there might actually be funding available now.  So, I reapplied.  I just want something to come up for me.  A rich man to help me out would be good too. 😉 lol

So yesterday, like I said, I visited my happy place which is the beach at Grand Haven, MI. It was a windy day and the temperature was in the 50s. This time of year, there’s no problem finding a place to park.  I parked and then I pushed my seat all the way back and took my seatbelt off. I brought my lunch with me so I ate that while I watched the waves and the very few people that were there.  After I ate, I did what I like to do best when I am there. I turned down the radio and leaned my seat back. And I just relaxed and listened to the waves. I ended up falling asleep and napping for a bit.  It is just so peaceful and enjoyable. I absolutely love it. You know I sleep soundly if I actually have a dream.  I slept for little bit.  And I get no interruptions because I don’t get good service out there so I basically am unplugged from the rest of the world. It’s pretty wonderful.

Here are a few pictures I took. I did take a brief walk outside by the water. It really was quite windy.

Aren’t the waves just beautiful? I guess some might say it looks angry, and maybe so. But I just think it’s beautiful. I love God’s work. I love nature. And I hope to be able to get out and enjoy more nature before the snow flies. I’ve heard that north of here has been getting some snow already. I say keep it up there! I’m just not ready for it.  I will become a hermit then. Ugh!

Wherever you are in this world, I wish you peace, love and happiness.

P.S. If you’re the praying type, please pray that I find a job soon. If you don’t pray, send me some positive vibes.
