It's a beautiful morning, but I know another unbearably HOT and HUMID day is on the way, once again. It has been so sticky that walking early - at six - has been a really sweaty experience.
I am enjoying my morning walks, generally done alone, sometimes with Mark and yesterday, with Mark and CrazyDog, but she slows me down, so I will leave her to Mark today. Most generally, it's me and God..walking along, amidst the construction messes, virtually everywhere. These construction workers start early here, and work late, so there is no way I can avoid them, and I really don't care if they think I am the crazy lady, walking along.....seemingly talking to herself, but really having pretty intense conversations with the Man. As usual, it has been me running my mouth...recently, I am trying to listen as much as talk. That's kind of hard to do, but I'm learning.
We had a wonderful day with our Mom yesterday, sometimes when I visit, she is feeling so bad that it can be quite difficult to even get her attention, yesterday, the day was awesome. She was happy to see us, our stepdad cooked us the most wonderful lunch...and by the time we left, I could tell she was ready to lay down, she was so very tired. She is in a lot of pain all the time, and I certainly understand how that can wear a person out. After we left there, we drove to the Ice Cream Store---Trav needed her Butterfinger avalanche, and I needed to pick up some paperwork and money. Trav and I had a wonderful day in general, we really spent most of the day talking---well, talking and driving. It felt like I spent hours behind the wheel.
Last night, we ordered dinner out and started the Friday Night Lights series on DVD, I love that show, and she had never even heard of it. I think she is sufficiently hooked...we watched FOUR episodes, have ten more in the first season, now I have to find the second season on DVD. Season three begins in October, and that's one show I really am looking forward to seeing again.
Today---bookwork, since I have put the quarterly tax reports for the ICS off until the last day...good heavens, I didn't use to wait 'til the last minute to do anything.
Happy Thursday to you all.
