Getting My Groove Back....
It took about 3-4 days to get back to my walking, but I'm into again. It seems to have cooled a little, but I still have to do it in the mornings. Yesterday was a very interesting day to walk as we were anticipating Hurricane Irene. It was cooler and there were occasional gusts of wind. The sky was very active, with clouds passing by at record speed.....even I could tell that something was brewing. It was like being in the center of a rotation marble. The following photos (by Roddy Medders) were taken off Facebook and show the beauty and drama of what was happening.....keep in mind that the sky looked like this here, where nothing happened. It's hard to imagine what it looked like closer to the eye of the storm.
Luckily for us, that was as exciting as it got. Yesterday vacillated between sunny and overcast skies, with occasional gusts of wind. It began to rain around 4PM, but it lasted only a short while. Around dusk it rained again, and that was it. I thought it would probably rain sporatically through the night, but it didn't. Today was warm and sunny with blue skies and white, puffy clouds. We dodged another one....and for that we're very thankful.
My volunteer time at Palmetto Animal League has also resumed and a lot happened in my absence, which I was pretty much able to keep in touch with through Facebook. I've updated the PAL page on this site, so animal lovers (or those who just like adorable photos!) should check it out to keep abreast of the activity. I continue to enjoy my time there and love being with the animals and animal lovers.......it's a good thing!
Other than that, things have been pretty normal......shampooing carpets, tasting wine at my local shop, searching for my checkbook......yes, it seems that another senior lapse has occurred. I have no idea what has happened to it (or how long it has been missing) but, since no unusual checks have been written to my account, I assume I've "misplaced" it. I've looked in all of the usual places and as many of the unusual places as seem plausable, all to no avail. I'm giving it until Monday to show up and will then contact the bank......and cede defeat!
