MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Monday morning on the deck

After Zoom time with my London boys, I fed the dogs at 7:40 AM and moved to the deck with my coffee. I was trying to adjust the table’s umbrella and, well, in short, the large exterior light hanging from it came crashing down, sending shards of glass all over.

Rechargeable vacuum and sweeping, and by 8:30 AM, I am settled in my spot, ready to begin my day.

The weather is finally nice with no rain, which was all it did Sunday, intermittently. I’d set up my work area on the deck, with assurance from my weather app that there would be no more rain, only to remove myself and work items back inside to my study. This happened at least three or four times.

Right now, it’s 63 degrees and there are only16 degrees to go before we hit today’s high of 79 degrees. The rest of the week is not to be much higher with Sunday assigned the first day with rain. I am only hearing hints of distant birds singing, a little buzzing, and the grinding motors of lawn-keepers working on the medians on Shroyer Road. The flowers in nearby Lincoln Park and the medians. I believe Shroyer Road is the only street in all of Kettering with full medians.

Yesterday, following my wet walk, I spent time researching and a bit of writing. It was a fairly low-key day, relaxing and peace-filled. I have nearly completed the podcast AMERICAN PRESIDENTS: TOTALUS RANKIUM. These British fellows are terrific with top-notch research and a delivery that is easy-listening, sometimes irreverent with British humor, but one of my favorites. I am on their first episode of two on Richard Nixon and will hate getting to the final installment.

I have beans and sausage in the slow cooker and am finally getting a hold on my day after the lightbulb fiasco.

So, I am planning to make it a great day and I hope you make that choice, too!
