A quick trip – The beloved husband took a quick trip to Denver to see his kids and attend an ELO concert. He had a great time. Sometimes it’s the short trips that are the most fun (except for the flying part!).
Grateful for home – The weekend before his quick trip we had been on a weekend trip to visit friends. I can say that I’m glad the travel is done. It was hectic. Laundry from one trip was still warm while being packed for the next trip. It was all fun but I also love home and routine. Maybe I need more space between events.
Be grateful for now! – This past week I ran into some old friends. The husband was on a walker and doing very poorly with it. He was very unsteady. I greeted him and he recognized me but didn’t respond. He gave me a goofy smile (goofy as in he couldn’t make his mouth work). His wife was guiding him from behind and saw me. I was with another group of people so I could ask what the heck happened but it was a shocker. This guy was very fit. He was a runner, completing the Boston Marathon among others. He is only two years older than the beloved husband. It was a reminder to be grateful of what we have because next year could be very different.
‘mater season! – We are at the peak of tomato season here so I did the most foolish thing I could do. I burned the roof of my mouth. I don’t even know how I did it but it sure hurts. It hurts the worst with anything acidic, like tomatoes. Boogers.
Season changing – We are getting to the end of summer. The changes are subtle but they are there. The temperatures are still in the upper 80s bumping 90 but the nights are cooling off. The locusts are finishing their singing with the crickets picking up where they ended. One of our big festivals is ending and another is starting in a week. Our local baseball team has ended their season. People are still on vacation but all the ads are for school stuff. The older I get the faster time goes.
So how was your week?
