Finally, a break (slight) in the heat and humidity. Still steaming but bearable.
This morning I went out for my usual daily walk. I walk the whole length of our development, which is at least a mile (I'll have to measure it someday). We have thirty-nine homes here in our development but only three of us walk, all old guys. One guy we call "The Marine" because he has the slow, steady Marine march. The other neighbor who walks, walks with his dog. He's always very serious and keeps his dog on a short leash. Obviously doesn't know now to train his dog because he's been walking him for two years now and he can barely control that dog. I feel sorry for the dog.
Well folks, now I can coast through the rest of the summer. The only necessary item on our agenda is renewing our driver's licenses which we will do at the end of summer. Hopefully before I leave for my annual visit to Toronto and my Canadian Buddy, Pat. We can renew our licenses for EIGHT YEARS. That should pretty much take us (me and Bill) out to THE END, since Bill will be 88 years old this year and I will be 75 years old. We renew on our birthdays.
I can't get completely away from my doctor's appointments. Next week I have my six month dermatologist appointment. In September I have my follow-up to last week's colonoscopy. At this time of my life, my life is scheduled around doctor's appointments. This is payback for all those years I used to kid my Mother about all her doctors' appointments. Karma is a bitch (as they say).
These days my life consists of:
- Playing online Scrabble through my Facebook account.
- Checking my e-mails.
- Talking to my good friends Pat and Larry on FaceTime.
- Loving a few good men (they know who they are).
- Working part-time at the hotel.
- Cooking with fresh veggies from the local produce stand.
- Eating hummus on pita chips and fresh soup for lunch.
- Refreshing my multiple bird baths to keep my backyard population of birds happy
- Reading. I LOVE reading.
- Listening to my Bose radio and my Antiques Beat Radio station
That's what this one grain of sand among the billions of grains of sand of the Beach of Life is doing, living my life and might happy where I am now. It could all go away tomorrow. But today? I'm living the Good Life folks.
