She looked at the clock and thought it said 5:00 AM and started her day. After being up a few moments she realized it was 4:00 AM. She decided to just stay up since she had a 7:30 appointment to go to the shop for work on her car. An engine light had been flashing for several weeks and it really unnerved her.
So she is up and within 30 minutes the current goes off. She looks out her windows and goes out on the porch and there is nothing but "blackness". She has been made aware that she needs to have plenty of new batteries and candles in case this happens again. The current stayed off for 2 hours. Quick breakfast, green tea and off to the shop.
After her car was finished - since she was in the city - she did some grocery shopping. More pads were purchased to put under furniture so her new floors will not be harmed.
Time for an early lunch and she does not want to drive home and does not feel like making a sandwich.
So a small vegetarian pizza sounds good and one is ordered and as she waits she has thoughts to go to the local small park.
She smiles at what she views - a young man with 5 children. One pulling a contraption with her bike that holds 2 little ones. One riding a bike that does not look over 7 years old and the father takes off on a scooter you push with your foot with a little one in tow.
I wanted to say "you sure have your hands full". Helmets on their heads and off they went down a trail.
So, she sits at a picnic table eating her lunch. Thoughts arise that her country property is prettier and has no flies. But for some reason it was relaxing. Just think she would have missed this family on their trail ride.
Also would have missed driving past a 800 sf frame home on a beautiful lot that was over looking the park - priced at $59,000.
No - no - no - One Woman - forget your creative thoughts.
