This week flew by.
The streak of great, sunny, and warm weather seems to have cursed us here in The Miami Valley with true late-autumn or winter weather – cold and gray. I really detest the gloomier days without sunlight.
Last afternoon and evening at The Park were still busy despite the train not running due to the rain. The Guests were quite charming and I got to see Mindy Shields Lang for the first time in years, and I got to meet her husband, Kip. What a super surprise!
I got to work with the neatest Volunteer, Joyce Ellison, and it was such an immediate connection to her. Joyce is a fellow Hoosier and a graduate of the former Shortridge High School in Indianapolis. She arrived in the Dayton area for a job in occupational therapy, working with the county’s children’s services, schools, and foster families. We discovered we knew many of the same folks. I hope I have the opportunity to work with Joyce, again, as it made the evening so much more enjoyable.
I keep seeing new and familiar CHRISTMAS VACATION movie memes on social media and I hope there’s a chance to watch the movie at least once this Christmas season. I purchased it for streaming but I am simply too tired to watch much of anything while relaxing. I typically watch it a dozen+ times each year.
It’s time to get myself ready for the afternoon and evening.
Make it a great day!
