A busy day today and horrible
storms during the night
and do not think I ever remember such a display of lightning - felt like hiding :(
Much past my bedtime I called my Beth on cell phone to tell her land line phone
was not working.
Aware of this I was told and she had been checking with someone and learned phones
and some electricity out in my area.
I only use my cell phone when in car and it was not on for her to get in touch with me.
Phone will be repaired next week :(
Early morning viewing and thankful of no damage
just water and mud everywhere
and a lot of limbs from the old trees are everywhere.
Not much sleep and left home at 7:30 for dental appointment. All went well and since already
half way to big city, continued onward. Looked out rear view mirror and police car is following me.
Upset and wondered what had I done.
I asked this and he replyed "you do not have your seat belt on."
I now wear a cross body purse and when in car it makes me think I have the seat belt on.
Guess I did not have it on. He was so kind when I explained this, looked at my licence
and a compliment was given. Now in the past this would have made me smile but not now.
So I was not given a ticket, just a warning, told not to be so upset, he did not mean to spoil my day and to continue on safely to Nashville.
I have such much to be thankful for
do not like the cane for balance issue that seems to come and go (especially if get upset)
along with energy level that
not like it was 5 years ago and I keep thinking it should be...
I am well aware that this one is not aging gracefully, not realistic, refuses to slow down
and goes until she has to stop because she cannot take another step.
So onward on my journey to return something in the big city and this is one more reason I buy most online.
So convenient and easy to return items by just putting in the mail. I have been looking for something special for the upcoming wedding just in case I can go to New York.
A trunk load of items left at my Jamie's home and want her to look through them before
leaving off at Goodwill. Muddy car was washed at the best place in Nashville and then onward towards the country with quick stop for a hamburger as I had to have something in
my stomach. Earlier had finished my energy drink and coconut almond bar.
No upscale or healthy eating on this day....
So good to pull down my long gravel drive. A lot of limbs need to be picked up from the storm
but will take my time.
Whenever I make a long, tiring trip like this
it is so good to be home
and I have thoughts of never ever leaving the woods again.
An image sent to me
that makes me smile and brings tears to my eyes.
A memory keeper
My handsome soninlaw being fitted for a suit for
his only daughter's and
my granddaughter's soon to be wedding.
and now time for this one to feed Callie,
scramble an egg, cook a slice of bacon, brew some tea and have a slice of toast
before I end the day :) and might add that while watching the news will have a
big bowl of ice cream....
