Wow, this lady is quite tired after traveling a lot of ground today. It’s 8 p.m., and have been on the go since 10 a.m.
Met with a friend for coffee this morning. Haven’t done that in a long time and it was great. I’m gathering more creative friends as time goes on, writers, musicians, poets, artists, and I’m loving it. It makes life interesting and full of possibilities.
Mom had therapy again today. Not sure if she’ll go many more times, and I’m sure she’s glad about that. She’s still not compliant with footwear. I just don’t have the energy to argue with her. She doesn’t hear what the provider says, and fills in her own blanks as to what her instructions are. I hope when I’m elderly I follow directions. I do now, I don’t see that changing. Hope I don’t cause my kids a headache.
My new book to read is “Vacuuming in the Nude and Other Ways To Get Attention.” It’s by Peggy Rowe, Mike Rowe’s mother. She is my new hero. She had two New York Times bestsellers after turning 84. I’m a child of 70, so I’m stoked! How about that? I’m looking forward to reading some humor right now.
If I had to write an essay about how I spent my summer, I’d have to say a resounding “inside!” I find that sad. We had such a terribly hot summer this year, it didn’t feel as if we had much deck time at all. Sunday, we enjoyed a couple hours out there, and I realized how much I missed it. We just don’t spend as much time like we used to. It’s so terribly busy for the Babe doing Honor Guard Captain, funerals, and his Quartermaster duties. I’ll be glad when he’s finished with his elected term and his volunteer position. I hope we have a lot of spare time. I’d like to take a surprise day trip here and there just for fun. Tulips in spring, leaves in fall, Baker’s Candies when the fancy strikes us.
The Babe has an appointment tomorrow afternoon to get his eyes checked again. He went six months ago, and got new lenses, so we’ll see what happens tomorrow. I hope you have a nice evening, and we see each other tomorrow. Take care!
