Hello my friends, we had a hot, humid day today. I loved it and tonight the thunder rolled in and the skies opened up.....what a downpour. Our electricity went out for a short time but before long everything was flicking at me. It took me about 5 minutes to set all the clocks again and I had to smile as I thought just how many clocks should one person have?
I was suppose to go to a BBQ tonight but my friend postponed it due to the weather. She only has a small place and was planning on having everyone outside on her deck.
I was pleased that she put it off as I was in the middle of a good book and didn't want to drive into the city especially with the rain coming down so hard.
My day was quiet, and peaceful. My tooth is so much better that I hardly noticed it at all today. I changed my bedding and did a load of laundry, tidied up the house and went out for a few groceries. I love driving this car. It is a bit bigger than mine and drives so smooth....ah maybe I will trade, a girl can always dream can't she?
I am reading Resilience by Elizabeth Edwards....she is one smart lady and I have to admit I admire her courage in the face of adversity...so not one to sit around and feel sorry for herself but a real doer, she does have the luxury of money but it only reinforces to me how money can't buy health or happiness. I also realize as I read about her life how much I appreciate my own life. Oh I have had my ups and downs as does everyone but I don't think I would change a thing. Life is good, love is better. This book also made me realize that one should not put all their eggs in one basket but should have many interest and relationships in life. I really feel its important that woman keep their friendships and interest as well as be wife and mothers. So many put everything into their families and homes, that is wonderful but I think marriage is much more interesting when a little independence is involved, even a hobby can add much to the conversation between family and friends. I'm not sure its healthy to always be at the beck and call of only one person....so much can happen if that person lets one down, or leaves or gets sick even. No, I am more convinced than ever that one should have more than one reason to exist in life....but I do respect the right of others to feel as only they can.
I had a great day today my friends, managed to catch up on some rest, did a little housework, watched a football game, read a book.....gosh as I read what I did I can see why I am feeling so content tonight. Sometimes I think a hard days work would be the death of me.....only kidding as I love a relaxing day as well as a full one.
Take care my friends.......Good Nigh and God Bless
