Dear Diary, July 16, 1984

Today was a normal day. We went to the beach for supper today. Dad & Mom, Ann & Lance, Grandma & Grandpa, Iona & Russell and me. Maye was there so I swam with her. I feel more grown up. I feel I have more responsibility now. Because I'm getting older. I sure hope we go down to Roden gun next week. I hope I pass my swimming lessons.

Love Crystal ๐Ÿต Take off!

I was fortunate to live within walking/biking distance of a provincial beach on Columbia Lake. I am assuming it was a Monday because when we got together with Dad's family it was on a Monday night for dinner. I see that I was "starting" to feel more grown up.... I'm still "starting" to this day ๐Ÿ˜‚. I think growing up is highly overrated. Stay a kid-like for as long as you can, is my suggestion so far for this life! In my diary I actually drew a monkey where I put that monkey emoji. He was one of my key pieces of art. The "Take off!" ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

It is a beautiful sunshiney day here today. โ˜€๏ธ But too windy to go for a walk yet. I don't know about the wind where you are but our wind pierces right through to the bone... My phone says 8 degrees but feels like 4 degrees because of the wind.

I feel like watching a movie... a go to of mine.... King Arthur. If you haven't watched this one yet, I highly recommend it. Cuz. Charlie Hunnam. (sorry Ken but he is hot and you guys look a lot alike!) Rawwwrrrrr.... But it just has so many cool special effects and it moves right along... quick paced and he is quick with his responses... kinda like Ryan Reynolds in Dead Pool. We just watched that one two nights ago... LOVE that movie too.

I read a post from an account that I follow on Instagram this morning. The account is Finding Awareness. I have recommended it to people quite often. And the post just reminded me to accept ALL of the things about myself. And not to label them ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป or ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. They are just things. Accept them. And when I accept them as neither good nor bad they will change without effort because I am not fighting against them anymore. Anyways... I probably haven't explained it well. But if you're interested in what he has to say check him out. He has some amazing perspectives on life, particularly on addictions and bad habits.

I'm excited for this weekend because we are heading out to Jasper again for the weekend!! Hopefully to do some hiking and eating and drinking and shopping!! Ken and I decided to try and get there at least once a month, since we have missed our trip to Brazil and probably won't be going anywhere too far for our anniversary trip this year. It's all good! Just go where we can when we can!

K. Gotta go watch my movie. ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป
