MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Sunday on the deck

As Mama Kay, The Girls, and I left Centerville’s La Pinata restaurant Saturday evening, the storm clouds were moving in. Just as I reached the house, heavy drops began falling. It was a fairly fast-paced shower, but a heavy one. There may have been more that briefly moved through the area.

It’s still a bit damp to mow on this late Sunday morning and I am hoping that it will hold on until I can get to it Tuesday when I am not away from the house.

This morning has been quiet, but not without its chores of laundry, cleaning a heavy rug, attending to recyclables, and breakfasting beneath the raised umbrellas on the deck, The Quartet is gathered about and has since repositioned themselves since I took the photo, below.

I begin teaching at 2:00 PM and will do so until 11:00 PM. Depending on the humidity, I may teach from the deck. It’s 72-degrees at the moment and it is projected to rise up to 83-degrees by 5:00 PM. It would be a nice change to Zoom from the deck rather than my study.

As my eyes oft glance to the backyard, I am tending to attempt a mow of it, around 1:00 PM so that I am not fretting about it until Tuesday. The backyard’s grass grows terribly fast, mostly because I accidentally purchased “barnyard feeding grass” about ten years ago. If I had goats, cows, and sheep, it would be a different story.

My close family member who also battles RRMS (Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis) is improving, slowly, but surely. She’s discovering things with her MS that I’ve not encountered while not experiencing some of the MS-related items I have known. It’s amazing just how varied the symptoms are from one fighter to another, especially with siblings.

I need to shower before Zooming with my son who is on a work trip to Los Angeles. I am so grateful for technology and how it can keep us all connected.

It’s a beautiful Sunday in so many places, so be sure to make it a great day!
