MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Friday on the deck

Muggy! It’s still a beautiful morning, here at my deck retreat. The sounds of the various birds sound much like the background of a film soundtrack, but then there are the sounds of work coming from the high school, Shroyer’s traffic from the other side of The Haasienda, and neighbors from across the street having a fence installed.

The temperature is forecast for a high of 90 degrees and I believe it. The “feel” of heat and humidity is all around.

I had a great time at both online events, yesterday. After the final presentation, I spent time chatting with Valerie, Donna, and Rose, which is always a highlight and boost.

Today, I am to venture to The Neon Movies to see PHANTOM OF THE OPEN with Mama Kay, Janice Moore, Anna Sacksteder, Mama Kay’s cousin, Sue Winterstein, and possibly Ann Jackson, followed by dinner. However, I’ve been experiencing intense gut grumbling for several days and may need to bail on this afternoon’s activities.

I will work as long as possible from the deck, probably bringing out a fan to ward off some of the heat. I actually do stay comfortable with just the fan on me. I will do anything to remain outside in the fresh air. I am taking notes from Isaac Marosson’s COLONEL DEEDS: INDUSTRIAL BUILDER. It’s a start for research, but I do become suspicious of biographies that glaze over some less stellar moments of an individual. Present the facts and let the reader decide!

Ah, well… Stop complaining, Darin! This is where Mother would have said, “Don’t complain about things without offering potential solutions,” or most likely, in this case, “If it bothers you so much, write your own book.”

No more complaints, so I guess I will be attentive to my work and make it a great day!
