MY DAY: A busy Saturday

It was a beautiful spring day and my body was quite cooperative to enjoy it.

I needed some carpet cleaner for pets so I grabbed the bus to the Walmart on Kingsridge Road which is only a few blocks from the RTA’s south hub. Amazingly, I was in and out of the store with about five minutes to spare for the bus’s return. I hopped off a few miles later to have an early lunch at Elsa’s Mexican Restaurant before teaching home at 12:40 PM.

By 1:30 PM, I was at Fairmont’s field for track, soccer, and lacrosse to watch former student and canine crew member, Beck Melin, play lacrosse. He played brilliantly, scoring five goals and an assist. His mom’s brother, Wes, and his family was in from Pittsburgh and it was great to see all of them.

By 3:30 PM, the dogs were fed and I fought the urge to mow the yard.

I grabbed No. 17 to head to The Oregon District for supper, and was returned by 8:30 PM.

Last week, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS was on television, but I could not locate it. I’ve watched the movie every year since 1973 when Mother, eight months pregnant with my sister, took Debbie Poynter and I to see it at the Elwood Theater. I bought it for $4.99 on Prime and am now happily watching it in my bed with Col. Deeds snuggled in front of me, Bailey behind me, and Harrigan at my feet. Chief and Erma are snoring from their beds.

It was a great day and I’m still refreshed from the activity.
