(7:20 AM) It’s almost time to shave, shower, and dress for an eight-hour stroll at the park. The sky is a steel gray and when I stepped onto the deck, I felt a few raindrops despite there being no rain in the forecast until this evening when I am to leave the park. Yet, it feels like rain is to join us this morning.
Taco Tuesday with Mama Kay and the Post-Mass Gals was fun, as always. I returned home with enough time to take a nap before teaching from 4:00 PM until 11:00 PM. I immediately dropped into bed after teaching, waking for a few nature breaks throughout the night. This morning I feel rested and ready to charge into my day. My lunch is packed, as well as a few fortifying snacks to aid my energy throughout the day.
May 18th… I cannot believe May is past the halfway point of being completed. I do love the month of June, but May 8th was my grandmother’s birthday and I always thought, that like my mother’s April 6th birthday, it made the entire month special. With an altered schedule, I am hoping my energy reserves will be in place throughout the summer so I can enjoy my time on the deck without feeling tired or sleepy.
(8:00 AM) As I ventured outside to see if the trash containers had been emptied, I felt the sprinkles begin. I can hear the traffic on the wet pavement from the front side of the house.
The iris continue to share their beauty and my deck-crawling wisteria is beginning to bloom in a few places.
It’s almost time to head across the street to where I will pick up Bus No. 17 which will begin my morning journey to the park. I am ready with several minutes to spare.
Whatever the morning throws at you, be determined to make it a great day.
