The morning walk began about 8:15 AM, and I am going on about four hours of sleep. This normally is not a problem for me, but after the past few days I could have used a little bit more slumber.
By 9:15 AM I was on my way to Beavercreek to visit with the Pollock family who is hosting a yard sale for one of Joanie’s groups. I also finally gave Tyler his college graduation gift which I’ve had in my possession since the end of May.
After a fun, short visit with the Pollock family, I began my rounds for shopping needs over in the Fairfield Commons area. For anyone who knows me, shopping is one of my least favorite things. Fortunately, with my new iPhone and Siri, I can continue to work on emails, blogs, or texts while performing this necessary, but unenjoyable business. This for me has been a stress reliever, and a way to be fully productive with something – like shopping or snapping green beans – that makes me feel unproductive.
I’m now aiming myself in the direction of Kettering, knowing that I still have to iron clothes for tomorrow morning’s wedding, fix my new bicycle that has something prohibiting the tire from moving smoothly, prepare lunch, sit down to write and research, and then get ready for dinner with two director friends and and then on to another show of Joseph. I also need to map out my route to North Bend, Ohio for tomorrow’s trip.
I only pray that in 20, 30, or even 40 years, I shall still have the same abundance of my current daily energy so that I might still be productive, enjoying life to its fullest. I cannot imagine life otherwise.
