I also began the day with such lovely blog comments. Really. I was most interested in Diane's feeling that some change is coming like a storm. Do you think the combo of 911, the bank crisis, and now an oil disaster that will take 10, 20, 30 years or more to even begin to fix has made us feel less secure, less happy go lucky. America has been rather "happy go lucky" for a long, long time. Minus the Civil War, civil rights and Kennedy's death. Oh, and the Beatles.
The long hair which led to drugs and hippies.
The Book Sale is this week and I am having back pain. G says he thinks it's psychological. I don't want to do the book sale anymore and my body is manifesting back pain so I have a way to "stop". I do like emptying the boxes of cookbooks, gardening and how to. Those are subjects that I like. And now that I have had two big cups of coffee, the pain is gone. I am hydrated.
The daughter just called to see what we are doing today. Father's Day and she is invited to spend it with the boyfriend, his two boys, and his parents. I told her the truth. G doesn't even know it's Father's Day. He'll be okay with not spending the day with her. And, if I give him permission to bring the brand new grill down from the attic (where it's been for two or three years) he will be so very happy that he won't care where she is spending the day. And he may even load our old grill on the truck and take it to her house so she can grill with the boyfriend and his boys. And G will be having lamb chops for dinner. It's all good.
I need to get started on my list of tasks for today. I've spent 2 hours doing nothing much. I guess that's enough "relaxing" for me right now.
