a new type of mindfulness meditation. You decide? 😉

It was such a beautiful day yesterday, that I decided to sit outside and soak in the sunny day! Hubs was mowing the lawn. However after that he joined me in sitting outside.

I decided to just lie back and cloud watch. Which at first thought, yeah, I suppose that sounds boring. However after doing it for a while, my mind entered into a nice zen type zone! whooooo the tension simply drained from my body. Between the warmth of the sun, feeling the soft breeze and simply staying focused on the clouds as they slowly drifted overhead, I reached a zen zone.

I even lost track of how long I did this. lol But I used my mindfulness skills, and took track of what I felt, what I heard and what I saw. Then when I noticed that my tension was draining, I still stayed focused on the cloud watching.

Calendar day; May 9, 2015

Saturday, the 9th of May, 2015 is the 129th day in 2015 and in the 19th calendar week.
General Events:
International Migratory Bird Day (Second Saturday in May)
May 9, 2015 in the Americas/Caribbean
International Migratory Bird Day is observed on May 09, 2015. It celebrates bird migration in America. Bird Day is celebrated in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. It takes place on the second Saturday in May in the U.S. and Canada. In Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean it is celebrated in October.
Although the event is usually on the second weekend of May, the first World Migratory Bird Day was launched on the weekend of April 8–9, 2006. The event was created to help turn the world’s attention to the wonders of bird migration and the need for their conservation. Each year, the total number of registered World Migratory Bird Day events has steadily increased along with the number of countries in which these events occurred.
Bird migration is the regular seasonal movement, often north and south along a flyway between breeding and wintering grounds, undertaken by many species of birds. The timing of migration is controlled primarily by changes in day length. Migrating birds navigate using celestial cues from the sun and stars, the earth’s magnetic field, and probably also mental maps. Human activities have threatened many migratory bird species.
The distances involved in bird migration mean that they often cross political boundaries of countries and conservation measures require international cooperation. Hunting along the migratory route can take a heavy toll. Structures such as power lines, wind farms and offshore oil-rigs have also been known to affect migratory birds.
Habitat destruction by land use changes is the biggest threat, and shallow wetlands that are stopover and wintering sites for migratory birds are particularly threatened by draining and reclamation for human use.

Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Awareness Day (Second Saturday in May)
May 9, 2015 in the USA
Obseved annually on the second Saturday in May, Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Awareness Day sheds light on this often misdiagnosed, little-known syndrome.
Causing a range of physical, cognitive and medical challenges, Cornelia de Lange Syndrome is a genetic disorder that even though present at birth, it is not always diagnosed at birth.
Affecting the physical and intellectual development of a child, it is often known as Bushy Syndrome or Amsterdam dwarfism. Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) can lead to severe developmental abomalies affecting an estimated 1 in 10,ooo to 30,000.

Mother Ocean Day (Saturday before Mother’s Day)
May 9, 2015 in the World
Water is essential to human life. In fact, it is essential to all of the forms of life known to humankind in general, as there are no known species that can survive without it. Though marine biologists are unsure just how many kinds of creatures reside in our planet’s 5 oceans, it is estimated that about one-quarter of all of the Earth’s species do. Not to mention how very important the oceans are to our civilization—for thousands of years, braving their waters has been one of the bravest feats a human being could accomplish, one that often led to amazing discoveries and the general increase of our knowledge of the planet we inhabit. For all of these reasons and many, many more, Mother Ocean Day is a long-overdue celebration of our oceans in all of their majesty and peril.
Mother Ocean Day is relatively a new celebration, as it was introduced for the first time in 2013. It is a concept thought up by the South Florida Kayak Fishing Club. The point, of course, is to take a day to celebrate the beauty and wonder of the ocean, and it is no surprise that inhabitants of Florida were the ones to come forward with this idea, as Florida is famous for particularly gorgeous white sand beaches and clear, aquamarine waters.

Lost Sock Memorial Day
May 9, 2015 in the World
Lost Sock Memorial Day is celebrated on May 09, 2015. The problem is known to many people: a drawer full of socks and stockings, some of which no longer have a partner. The reason for the disappearance of single socks is still one of the unsolved mysteries of the world. Many devotees of Lost Sock Memorial Day suggests take the day as a chance to clean out your sock drawers and say good-bye to the wistful widows and sorrowful singles.
A sock is an item of clothing worn on the feet. The foot is among the heaviest producers of sweat in the body. Socks help to absorb this sweat and draw it to areas where air can evaporate the perspiration. In cold environments, socks decrease the risk of frostbite. Socks are manufactured in a variety of lengths.

It is also a wonderful chance to help those in need.
